Monthly Blog Stats & Helpful Hints #5

So lets get busy making your blog grow!

I’m always looking for great plugins to use on my WordPress site and recently I found one that I just love!!!

Do you have copied & pasted items saved all over your desktop or in files that you have to open up all the time to add to a post?  I know I did and I knew there had to be an easier way to do this.  There are so many different things I use over and over for some of my repeated type posts.  

After doing a little research, I came up on the plugin called Dashboard Notepad.  A very easy to use and basic plugin that I love to use often.

Ice Coffee Ice-Pops with Zipzicle and GIVEAWAY

coffepop600

I remember as a little girl how I loved it when mom came home with those flavored ice pops from the store. We didn't have A/C back then and this was a real treat in the summer time.  But now, I can make my own with Zipzicles by WizCo.  Since I'm older now and not really fond of the kid flavors anymore, I figured I would make something the adults would love.  French Vanilla Ice Coffee Ice-Pops came to mind quickly. But first a little about Zipzicle.  I was so happy … Read More
