I have an announcement

Hey guys, I have an announcement to make. I have started another blog, Yep I said, “another blog!” I want to move a large portion of the giveaways and such on over to that blog so I can keep this blog a bit more about life with Bipolar.

I have felt that the real reason I started this blog is getting lost. I need to make some money off the blogs to keep it running as I can’t really afford to keep paying for all this out of my limited income. I will keep ads and affiliate links on here and a few giveaways and such but majority will be at the new blog. Check it out don’t miss the fun!

What is the new blog name?? 1 Stressed Mom and 2 Girls.. It will be some funny stuff about our lives in this home of 3 women and reviews, giveaways, deals, coupons etc. There will be affiliate links on both blogs, I really need to get some money coming in to pay for the blog costs.

If anyone has any really good contacts for reviews or giveaways or any info you would like to share with me I would welcome any information you could share. Email me at [email protected] or [email protected], I check these email addresses regularly. I would love to hear what you all think of the new blog and the idea behind it! You are also welcome to leave a comment on this post as well.

Here is my new blogs button:

The Quick and Easy Guide to Branding Your Business and Creating Massive Sales with Pinterest

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Mom Blog SocietyRegardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readersThe Quick and Easy Guide to Branding Your Business and Creating Massive Sales with Pinterest

I have just read The Quick and Easy Guide to Branding Your Business and Creating Massive Sales with Pinterest by Kim Garst.  What a great book!! In this book you will see that everyone can use Pinterest for  business and reap the benefits.  Social media is one of the best ways to get traffic to your site as we all know and having a book to completely outline how to do it is awesome! 

I enjoyed reading this book as it is written so well. It outlines exactly how to use Pinterest for your business to drive traffic to your site and even sell products and all in easy to understand format.  She outlines steps and shows examples of what to do and how to do it! I personally just started with Pinterest a few weeks ago and really had no idea how to use it to promote my site and blog but now I have a new understanding of Pinterest, Marketing and Social media!

I recommend this book to anyone who wants to drive more traffic to their site or any business selling online!

Kim is more than happy for you to contact her with any questions, here is her contact information:

Kim has also offered a copy of this E book to 1 of my readers so we are having a giveaway, be sure to enter below!

Versatile Blogger Award…

I have been honored once again with the Versatile Blogger Award by  my good friend at TheAgoraphobicBlog.  

This woman suffers with Agoraphobia, if you hadn’t figure that out by the name of the blog, and she is one of the strongest women I know. She fights through her fears and shares it all with her readers.  She posts videos showing her struggles and showing her determination to win over this illness.  She does all this to help others who may be suffering. Not only does she share all this, but she reaches out and helps others and supports her fellow bloggers.  She is one of a kind and I am happy we have connected for so many reasons. Anytime I feel like life is hard, I simply go see what she is up to and it quickly makes me realize how strong we really are.  Thank you Fiona!!

The sweet comments and thoughtful expression on my blog has uplifted me, I want you all to know how much I appreciate it!! 

I hope if I can do anything to help uplift any of you,  you will drop by here or at the Website ( and make sure you let me know how I can help you.  I will do what I can! :)
