Blog Housekeeping


First, I've just learned that when someone reads my blog in a reader (or on a smartphone), it isn't counted as page views. And, well, getting page views is how I get paid for blogging. So if you read my blog on a reader - and I totally understand if you do, I use a reader too - it would be awesome if you would come to my actual blog site every couple of days and click through some posts just to ensure that your reading counts.Second, I've made a few changes to my blog's look and organized … [Read more...]

Help Send Sierra’s Mother Back to College!


You've all probably noticed that I link to Sierra's blog, The Phoenix and the Olive Branch, quite frequently. While I didn't know her before entering the blogging world, Sierra is more than just a fellow blogger to me. She's a friend. We've emailed back and forth, we're facebook friends, and we've actually met in real life. And on top of that, our current career paths are about as similar as our backgrounds. Well, Sierra's asking her readers for a helping hand, and I thought I'd bring her need … [Read more...]

More Raised Quiverfull Posts Coming


I'm going to post two more Raised Quiverfull stories in the next two weeks: Skarlet's story and Anne's story.

Raised Quiverfull: The Individual Stories

Now that all of the questions for the Raised Quiverfull project have been posted in panel form, I am going to post each participant's story individually as well. Ultimately, if you go to my Raised Quiverfull tab, you will be able to browse either by topic (seeing the full panel of answers for each question) or by participant. This will also be helpful as I add more participants (I will not add their answers to the original panel, because that would become overwhelming and tedious). I will be … [Read more...]
