I’ve been so busy working on some things behind the scenes that I can’t believe its Tuesday already. I really need a 35 hour day and a 8 day week. Seriously.
A few websites I used to write for are closing and/or merging with other sites. So, I have been working on deleting that material and moving it to either my own websites or the last of the websites I plan on keeping around. So, just trying to wrap that up. I also have some fiction I have been working on here and there. I have a series under my pen name that is was left after book 3 and it’s sort of hanging there. In limbo. Everyday Living with Chrys has been a slow process, too. Some of the material I am moving off these revenue sharing sites will fit there. They just need updated and cleaned up a bit. I think, for the most part, I am over revenue sharing websites. I am just going to keep on trucking with building my own websites and stick to the few that make me money. I need to take a step back. I have too many fires burning and it’s all been emotionally draining.
What can I say, I am a writing fool. Even though a lot of that material has nothing to do with food (ok, none of it) I have been pouring through cookbooks with the hopes of getting some new inspiration for this fall. I have a few tricks up my sleeve. 😉
What have you guys been up to this week?
In case you missed it last week, a really good friend of mine is a Paparazzi rep. They sell accessories and jewelry for $5. I’m hosting a party for her. All profits are going towards her wedding. She was in a terrible marriage for a long time and moved away. This person went years without child support and would not grant the divorce. It was as long legal battle and I am so proud of what she was able to accomplish as a single mom despite this bringing her down. Now that she has found love again…well…we all know how special we want our wedding day to be, right?? So, if you have some time I would love for you to stop by the online party and see if there is anything that strikes your fancy!
I’m also doing a marathon. Yes, me. A marathon.
I wrote a post about it on Everyday Living with Chrys. I am walking for the Children’s Miracle Network and Beaumont Hospital in Detroit. We walk 1 mile a day. I could really use some sponsors. So, if each of you sponsored me for just $1 I would more than reach my goal!
This week’s Features:
This week’s Most Clicked was:
Peanut Butter Cookies from Poems and Quotes Finder
This was a winner by a LONG SHOT! If you have never checked out this blog, you MUST do so! It is hilarious AND you’ll find a great recipe!
The MOST CLICKED is always my featured picture which runs on my home page!
YUMS PERSONAL FAVORITE:
Scent of Oranges is a wonderful blog. She makes some of the most interesting flavor combinations with fresh ingredients. I love Mexican food. I would eat it more often if Michigan Mexican food was closer to the style of the South like I am used to. But then again, I am sure I don’t need it. Most of it, as we know, isn’t super healthy. But, this recipe gives all the flavors without the guilt. Not to mention, maybe I can finally use that bag quinoa I purchased ages ago. I am dying to try this ENCHILADA QUINOA SALAD.
CONGRATULATIONS to you ALL!

I have never been fond of quinoa but your ENCHILADA QUINOA SALAD looks so good that I might have to give quinoa another try. You never know… maybe I wasn’t cooking it right.
I didn’t like quinoa until I found some really good recipes for it, like this one! Now I love it.

You are welcome. I hope you find something you like.
Sounds like you have a lot going on! I’m doing the Miracle Marathon too. It’s such a wonderful cause.
You are one busy person. I also feel like I need more hours and days in the week to get all my projects done.
So happy for your friend finding love again.
I go through these periods where I scale back on projects and then I just take on more. It’s a ridiculous cycle.
I see some great recipes there, must check them out.

Looks like you have been busy! An authentic blog is one that also involves stories outside of your niche. It is great to get to know the people behind blogs. Much more engaging
Lori Gunn says
I share your story of having a site shut down. After carefully downloading each thing I wanted to save, my desktop crashed. Laptops and other family members’ desktops are not as speedy as mine, so I’m behind till my computer is fixed. I pray some of my stuff gets recovered. It’s the challenges that make us tougher.
Melissa Smith says
You had me at 35 hour days & 8 day weeks! If only, right? And then I saw the Coffee Ice Cream. Heaven is calling me! LOL
April @ Everyday Fitness and Nutrition says

I love Peanut butter cookies! I have never had a Paparazzi party before. Sounds like it would be a lot of fun!
I love Peanut butter cookies. I have not made them in a while, might have to do that this weekend.
The Enchilada Quinoa Salad looks tempting. Compared to you I have not been doing much. Still getting used to the back-to-school stuff.
