How does one get back into blogging after having been away so long

Hello, it s been a long time since I have posted a blog post on here so hopefully you all will remember me.  About a month and a half ago I had a stroke, it was pretty much the worst time of my life. I had to basically teach myself how to walk and use my left side again. I was put on medication and now have to go get my PT checked every few weeks. I am not the same person I was before, I am much slower now and have discovered that I don't remember things as well anymore....more

A little more about Me

I came to the realization that many of you don't know a lot about me and how I got here. When I was younger I had the dream of becoming a model, when I was a teenager my dream was to be a mother, at 19 I gave birth to my son, at 21 I gave birth to my second son, got married and was divorced in 1994. I have only had one job in my life aside from starting our own business in 2008, and that was a school monitor, I loved that job but had to leave in 2005 due to the birth of my daughter. Since then I have remarried, had 2 more daughters and am a stay at home mom....more

Stop Online Beauty Smearing and Beauty Bullying

I was laying in bed asking myself what can I do to prove to everyone that I did not post this horrible comment, I realized aside from using my voice I really can't. I will probably never find out who did it, the night it happened I was devastated, yesterday I was angry, & today instead of being reactive I’m going to be proactive. I am not the only person that this kind of thing has happened to, & we can change passwords etc. but that won’t stop it from happening again to someone else....more

What to do if you have "Drama" occuring on your page

I have a total three Facebook pages and last night I experienced major drama on one of those pages. What do I mean by drama you ask? Someone being rude, mean, and obnoxious on your page. I don't even know how it all got started but it escalated into some pretty harsh name calling, the one thing I don't allow is someone being rude to my fans. How does a blogger handle something like this?...more

What to do when your blog isnt getting the attention you want

I have recently been experiencing a little bit of frustration because my Beauty Bytes blog isn't getting the traffic I had hoped it would. I think to myself "what am I doing wrong?" Maybe my content isn't interesting enough or its not original enough to gain an audience. For the past week, I have been thinking all sorts of reasons, but then I realized something, you have to start from the bottom before you can reach the top. Every blogger has experienced a day when they feel like a total failure because their blog isn't getting the response they hoped for....more
Thanks for the positive message!  As a relatively new blogger, I too have been disheartened with ...more

How do you handle being a blogger mom?

How do we as women handle being blogger moms while trying to juggle the everyday dealings of life? When I began my adventure in the world of having Facebook pages and blogging, I really didn't know what to expect at first. Now that I have been juggling both and trying to keep up, it's one of the hardest jobs ever, I really can't call blogging a job unless your getting paid for it but I'm doing what I love to do so to me, it's a job....more
