H there! Love your spirit, and your rambling. Love the fact that you are still in love with your hubby after all these years. So am I, with my awsome gift from God. Love her beyond belief. I also come from a very close-knit family, as you do. I will continue to read your blogs. By the way, I found you through Wendy’s site. Glad I found your blog. Blessings.
Hi there thanks for dropping in and pleased you liked my blog and hope you come on back again…………
Hi Joanne, Your blog is great. It loads quickly and looks nice. I love the statement at the top of your blog, it’s a perfect way to introduce readers to what your blog is about. I have just two concerns for your blog that might help you out. The font is so light and small that it might be hard for many people to read what you have written. My only other concern is that you have no like buttons or sharing buttons. People like to show their appreciation and don’t always have something to say. People like to “like you” when they enjoyed a post. Having sharing buttons like twitter and facebook are a great way to get more traffic to your blog if you want to build it up. Hope this helps. All the best. 🙂
I do have a “like” button along with twitter and facebook buttons but as for the font well that is something I will have to try and change……..thanks for the feedback I really apppreciate it…..
Anytime. The content was really wonderful.
Hi Joanne. Would you like one of my free IndieFlix subscriptions? If so, please email me. Thanks 🙂
