Pinterest-How I Pin

Pinterest is an amazing resource to drive traffic to your blog. Pinterest and Facebook are consistently fighting for the #1 spot for referrals to my blog. The beauty of Pinterest is you don’t have to be an amazing, professional photographer to have a photo “accepted” which lets all of us have an opportunity to have our recipes […]

My Favorite Things-my friends

I am a true chocoholic. I eat some sort of chocolate every day. It doesn’t have to be much. Maybe a few chocolate chips that “didn’t make it” into a recipe (oops) or a small candy bar. Or a cup of hot chocolate on a cold day. I know there are others out there like […]

Understanding Twitter-What is Twitter?

Wow, there’s a statement. Understanding Twitter. I don’t have a clue how to use twitter as a blogger. I have an account. I can click on the button at the bottom of posts and tweet it, just like I pin posts to Pinterest. But to say I’m getting the most out of it, no way. […]
