With this post I'm turning a new leaf for this blog. Rather than wondering why no one is really reading the blog, I am choosing to do something about it. While I still may not post as often as I should, I will make interesting and relevant contributions that will make you want to read my blog.
When I started this blog, I wanted to bring you the same things that brought me joy. I wanted to provide giveaways, news, tips, and a little bit of everything. That is not always the best goal as it turns out. Freelancing is what I know, and it is what I am good at. This blog was never intended to be about my work, however, as I have a blog on my main website for that. I'm going to get back to the basics with this blog, offering giveaways, reviews, and anything else a stay-at-home or work-at home mom or dad would want to know.
So, in light of my new realizations about me and about blogging, here are some great current giveaways you won't want to miss:

And here are a few tips for others looking to keep their blog fresh and keep the readers reading:
Post content weekly - Posting weekly keeps readers coming back at a set time, so they are more likely to visit your blog as they read through other blogs that post on that day.
Post relevant content - Relevant content ensures your readers get what they expect when they come to your blog, which makes them more likely to enjoy reading it.
Narrow your blog/posts topics - Stick to a few things to talk about on your blog rather than having a hodgepodge of mixed topics. You'll attract readers that will keep coming back instead of those looking for a topic you do not talk about very often. Keep each post to one or two topics to keep reader's interest.
