Ultimate Blog Challenge- October


My sis in law and I decided to take part in the Ultimate Blog Challenge for October. We did it in April. I was pretty proud of myself for knocking out 30 posts in 30 days.The idea is to challenge bloggers to give their blog a boost by posting more often. The blog challenge folks help drive traffic towards your blog. Should be fun.. so many different types of blogs participate!

SO… here we are again… Another 30 posts this month. I have plenty of blog fodder with my homeschooling, crafts and life in general. I hope you’ll join me this month.

What would you like to see on the blog this month? Homeschool lessons? Confessions? Craft Tutorials? Giveaways? I’d love to hear from you. Are you participating in the Ultimate Blog Challenge… let me know so I can stop by and say hi! It’s not too late to sign up!

Celerating April (21)

As part of the Ultimate Blog Challenge, I have been getting emails with blogging suggestions. Today contained a list of the different causes/ things that are recognized in April. I don’t know why… this list struck me as funny… not necessarily the things on the list… but the fact that so many things were on it. So… Instead of blogging about one of the causes, I just thought I’d share the list with you:

Did you know April is…
Autism Awareness Month
International Guitar Month
Keep America Beautiful Month
National Child Abuse Prevention Month
National Frog Month
National Garden Month
National Humor Month
National Parkinson’s Awareness Month
National Volunteer Month
National Mathematics Education Month
National Poetry Month
Stress Awareness Month

My husband used to work on the morning show of a local radio station in a little town where we worked. Each day they would talk about whatever was recognized on that day. Like “chocolate lovers day” or “say hi to your neighbor day.”
You can look up “awareness days” and find all sorts of lists. Wikepedia has one here. And here is another fun one where you can click on the month you want to find out about. Seriously… there is a day for EVERYTHING!

Ultimate Blog Challenge (1)

I am not completely sure why, but I decided to join the Ultimate Blog Challenge. I thought it would be fun to see if I could actually follow through with blogging thirty posts in thirty days.

I started this blog in the fall. It has served as a place for me to write confessions about being a seminary wife, homeschooling, crafts, giveaways, and other things. I don’t really know how to classify this blog. I mean the title says that it is “how to live life with three little monkeys by your side.”

And I guess the sporadic-ness and variety of topics found here is a pretty good snap shot of what life is like with three kids.

But here’s my question for you…

What would you like to see more of on this blog for the next thirty days?

– craft tutorials?
– crochet patterns?
– homeschool lessons?
– giveaways?
– confessions?
– tips for life with little ones?
– book talks?
