Still being a new store blog writer (I have years and years of personal writing), I feel like I muddle my way through sometimes. It is fun to write, but I don't always feel like it. Do I buy advertising? Do I not? Do I have giveaways? What do I write next? Well, this weekend I have been bitten by the advertising bug and decided to go for it. I decided that I would buy some ad space on some of my fave blogs, as well as set up Google AdWords.
|See that yellow t&e? That's my ad!|
Then I decided to take Google up on their $100 in free advertising. I setup my text ads yesterday and I am set for the month. I have liked Google products from the start, so it just made sense for me to try them out. I am not yet sure what I will do when the $100 runs out, but what I do know is that I will continue to contribute to other blogs.
How did you decide what you would do with your blog?

|My pizza. Yum!|

Ooh, I made the top 5! Thanks, Paper Mama.
This weekend, we took Tater to the woods and she had a grand ol' time tromping through the long grass and attempting to swim through shallow brooks. Isn't she beautiful? The next three photos are by Ryan.
I also washed mounds and mounds of laundry this weekend. Believe me, we don't need pictures of that up here. I feel like I'm caught up in most domestic spheres and ready to start the week.

I am so glad it is the weekend now. I can finally catch up on my mountain of laundry from before and during vacation, as well as work on a few more crafts. I hope to update my shop with more items today and write a little more about them later. While I was home, I was able to find a few more small frames to turn into mini-chalkboards.
