I Love the Appearance of Butcher block carts

Some nights my children don’t sleep which means I don’t get much work done but I can daydream and surf the web while attempting to carry them back to their beds and lately I have been looking at various household items. I will be moving soon to the same town but different place and the location allows me to have a bit more room than what I have here so a girl can dream about items she may wish to have, right? I have always wanted a kitchen cart and so I have been looking around finding more kitchen carts to see what style I would really like.

I love the idea of a kitchen cart with a garbage area underneath. This would give me a great place to chop up my onions and green peppers.  I am forever trying to find good counter space to chop up my onions that I eat often. Having a butcher block cart would allow me to have a dedicated spot to chop up my veggies.  I have always seen a kitchen cart for a microwave but never a butcher block.

I love the idea of a kitchen cart to give more room to prepare for dinners. I am trying to cook more from scratch instead of boxed meals, because I think it’s a healthier choice. Of course getting my kids to eat foods I prepare from scratch is a difficult task.

What type of kitchen cart do you have or would you want to have?

When I Talk About Relationships

I get the most traffic. I am not kidding. Last Thursday I wrote a post about fairytales or something like that and all of a sudden I was seeing a huge spike in traffic do to this blog post. Do you realize that when I was going through my divorce over a year ago I got the most traffic too? I mean we are talking double maybe triple monthly unique visitors than what I am at now and only because I was chit chatting about my divorce and decisions to get divorced and how hard it was to make that decision.

Apparently people love reading about relationship articles, whether personal or advice they love it! I love writing  about my crazy ideas of relationships and my issues with relationships and being single. Maybe because this is something that people seemed interested in and something I am truly interested in sharing more of … I should write more on this topic.

So .. what is your topic that drives traffic? I hear recipes drive some awesome traffic too.

Blogging is a Passion for me, Therapy & Household Income

Blogging is a passion for me, therapy for my mind if you will. I enjoy writing to a point that if I don’t write at least one thing daily my mind will get so full that I can barely think straight. I will start to feel pressure behind my eyes, pressure in my neck and my shoulders will slowly start tensing up.

Blogging is an income for me, I am thankful {and lucky} that writing has become what I earn a living doing. I must admit I get some odd looks when I tell someone I am a blogger and that this is my primary household income only backed up a little bit by my virtual assistant business.

Blogging is not only an income and therapy for me, but it’s a community, a way to interact with others who have been where I am at or who are questioning the same things I am questioning. It’s a great way to connect with people from all over the world for support. Even virtual support can make a difference in a persons life. I don’t care if any non-blogger or non social media person doesn’t get it, but I get it, the connection bloggers have is amazing, truly amazing and supportive!

Yes, blogging can get difficult, especially if you want to share your views on a super sensitive topic that may not be part of the majority but really? This is your platform so whether you are like me and do this for fun and income or you just enjoy writing like me … remember, we are all here to support each other regardless of whether or not we approve of what each other write about. There is a bit of “fun” in a healthy debate, it’s when we put others down for having their own views that crosses a line that shouldn’t be crossed.

If you can speak or write about your views then why can’t someone else?! Remember “If you have nothing nice to say then don’t say anything at all”, really I swear, we don’t care if you read our blog posts and don’t leave a comment, it doesn’t bother us, especially if it’s not going to be positive or productive to the conversation.

Blogging is my passion, blogging is my therapy and blogging is my community so please keep it clean and free of negativity.
