Welcome! Its time for another monthly blog stats and helpful hints post. Just picking up a few helpful hints I hope will make a difference in our blogs growth in the future and keeping them in a Pinterest blogging board for future reference.
I hope you will also join us in the Personal Goals and Priorities in 2015 linky below and let us know how you are doing with your personal and blogging goals. More information to follow below.
So lets get busy making your blog grow!

Blog burn out. Do you ever have that? I know I did while figuring out my tip for this month. Then I thought, why not talk about blogging burn out.
I’ve been blogging for many years now, but not as intense as I have the past 2 years. And ideas for posts have been slow lately.
What do I do for ideas to write about on my blog?
1. Try new ideas for your passions you write about. Maybe a series of posts. I did a series about love during February with 14 Days of Love.
2. Take an old post and make it new and fresh again. Update the post with new news and/or pictures. I’ve done this with old recipes. New pictures really make a post stand out.
3. Make a list of blog post ideas. I have an ongoing list even through 2016 of ideas. I keep a pad and pencil by my bed and comfy chair to jot down those ideas that come along. And don’t forget using those cell phones to record your ideas for later.
4. Don’t be afraid of learning all you can about blogging. You never know when a post idea might come out of all that reading.
5. Lastly, take some time off of blogging. Just as in a 9 to 5 job, you need a vacation. A blog post idea may come about from this.
And always love and enjoy what you blog about. If you don’t, your readers probably won’t either.
So, with all that being said, I thought I would go to one of my favorite Facebook groups and ask those lovely ladies to share some of their favorite blogging tips and hints posts.

I’m just a country girl loving my geeky life with my wonderful husband, always taking pictures, getting my hands dirty in the garden, being crafty, exploring with travels and enjoying all this on a budget. But above all, living my faith as a child of God!
