The Truth About Blogging

Blogging takes a lot of time, effort and can be extremely frustrating.  I don’t think many realize that blogging is work.  It can be fun, it can be exciting, and it can be lucrative; however, the blogger has to give up a lot of themselves in order to achieve their goals.  Even when they are successful it comes with a price.

If you’ve noticed, lately I haven’t been ‘blogging with intent’ as much as I have in the past.  The several programs that I once was a part of, all came to a close.  Coincidentally, they all came to a close at around the same time!  That meant that a huge chunk of my potentially ‘sponsored’ posts disappeared.  One huge program that I was a part of for several years (from beginning to end), came to its finale.  The Brand P&G actually decided that it no longer was feasible to maintain its Canadian PGMom program.   Other programs came to an end; but were transferred over to other Social Media Groups … that means that the programs may or may not become active again.  In turn, that means that I am left unsure as to what may come.

The reality of it is, most Brands change the Media Groups they work with often.  I prefer not to get into details, and to keep this whole topic light.  My intent is just to explain what is going on, in regards to my absence from blogging.

So you’re probably thinking “where does this leave us?” … I’m actually thinking the same thing.  I’m not the only blogger thinking this either.  Many bloggers are currently wondering what their next step will be.  I’m hoping that things will pick up and that I become just as active as I once was.  Until then please know that I have been focussing on my health.

Thank you for your continued support.  I’m wishing you much health, love, and happiness.  ((hugs))

Break the Guinness Record – Family Day Fun #ad

For Family Day fun, why not break a record?  I’m referring to one of the many Guinness World Records!

Disclosure: I have been compensated to share this post. The opinions on this blog are my own.

The Guinness World Records has become a household name and the world leader for keeping world records.  As a young girl, I remember playing with my friends pretending to set world records.  We’d take turns at being the “World’s” strongest, “World’s” fastest, “World’s” slowest … you get the idea.  The sad part about it is we never actually thought we could hold any kind of record.  The truth of the matter is you can!

Since Family Day is coming (so will March Break) to Ontario on Monday, what do you plan on doing with your kids?  For me, as a mom, living in Toronto became difficult to enjoy.  After visiting all the standard locations that are geared for fun activities for kids, and then visiting them all over again and again!  Seriously?  How many times can you visit the same place without getting bored?  I don’t know about your family; however, for mine it didn’t take long.

It become especially hard when I financially no longer could afford all of the outings too!  I had to become clever with what activities to suggest.  They had to be fun and economical … and definitely interesting too!

Luckily, the Guinness World Records publishes a record-breaking annual book that is filled with new images, facts and features.  Their most recent book is now out. I recommend looking at the record-breaking world around us in Guinness World Records: Science & Stuff. Find out more at enough, you and your kids can try to break current world records!  Why not spend Family Day doing just that?!

  1. Apply online.
  2. Get the guidelines.
  3. Attempt your record.
  4. Submit your evidence.

Sounds simple?  Perhaps, but at least you’ll all have fun together trying!

You’re welcome.  If you succeed, and even if you don’t, please return here and tell me about all the fun and about your entire  experience(s).
