CBPH Highlights For the Week

My idea of fun and relaxation is going through the linked up projects in the Creative Bloggers' Party & Hop. I really can spend countless hours just clicking them one by one. Here are some highlights that I want to share with you.

The Creative Imperative's Halloweeny Lights just took 2 minutes to complete. Ahh, in this I-want-it-now world, this is a perfect Halloween project.



This nursery chair is something in common to all mothers of infants and toddlers but Domestic Imperfection's redo is really spectacular.



You can never go wrong with this burlap sonogram sign tutorial done by Sew Rockin. What an easy way to give a personal touch to any wall.




I absolutely love this Incredibles costume tutorial. Don't they really look the part? If you haven't planned your costume yet, this post will totally sway you to be the Incredibles.



As always, friends, THANK YOU for inspiring us!


Blogging For Dollars Series - Guest Post by Laurie, The Tip Junkie

Talk about blogging success and I tell ya, my guest blogger today is brimming to the max! I will tell you why. When I invite A-lister bloggers in this series, I usually get a response from them within 24 hours or more saying they will either do it or pass up the opportunity. With Laurie, I not only got a response in 13 hours that she's going to do it, she already wrote one for me to publish, and she responded via her staff with a "PR Director of Tip Junkie" title. Can you think of anything better than that?

Alright, if you don't know Laurie, you must be a) hiding under the rock all this blogging time you have, or b) you must be a month-old blogger. She's so well-known, besides her Tip Me Tuesday blog party, for her crafts, DIY, recipes, and for promoting the "little people" that may not have the resources to do it themselves. I keep coming back to her Tip Junkie blog besides the party day itself simply just because.

As you read her post today, I encourage you to read the links she included today. She mentioned about her ebook (subscribe to it) at the end of her post and the other one is about making money with sponsored posts. To give you a preview of what she said, here it is: "... run your blog like a business and expect it to make you a full-time income. {gasp!} Is that too bold? I was having lunch at BlogHer with a very well known blogger and I about spit out my food in horror when she said that she only wanted her blog to make her $40,000. WHAT?!? Why on earth would you limit yourself like that? Having a goal is great, but don’t sell yourself short."

Are you ready to hear from the blogging and business DYNAMO herself? Ladies and gentlemen, put your hands together for Laurie!

Photobucket


Can you share how you started earning income from your blog?

I was blogging for about a year before I started earning any money from it.  Back in the day, charging for a sidebar sponsor was a scary thought.; a huge no-no, even. Only a few blogs did it and those were the “big 1st generation” bloggers who had been blogging since 2005. I remember getting an e-mail from a friend who was going to start charging for sidebar advertising and we didn’t think that we had enough page views individually, so we started charging business as a group of 4 bloggers.  HA!  Yep, times have truly changed.
I started earning income from my blog first through my Mom-preneur Shops {a tiny bi-monthly fee for an ad listing}, then through sidebar advertising.  Thirdly, I started earning through an ad widget that I helped develop.  Next came revenue through Google Adsense.  Currently, I generate revenue through several different avenues but mostly through Brand campaigns and advertising.

Photobucket


What advice can you give on how bloggers can attract advertisers without turning off readers at the same time?

This is really important!  I talk more about that here. In a nutshell, figuring out the formula that works best for Tip Junkie was quite simply a lot of trial and error.  I used so many different strategies before I figured out what my readers would respond to.  Of course, it turned out to be the simplest formula:
  • Focus on only one goal for the brand/company/product. {this is KEY!}
  • Does it reward, educate, or inspire the readers?
  • Keep it as short as humanly possible. In fact, the shorter the better;  300 words is ideal.  Instead of a bunch of words, use 3-4 images to tell the story.  Once the post is written, go back to make sure you can figure out the brand messaging just from the pictures.
  • Make it very obvious what you want your reader to do or gain from the article. {this should be the #1 goal for the brand}
Can you please share tips to bloggers on how to balance family life and blogging?

Photobucket

HA!  Balance.  Um… I think the first step is to define what a “balanced life” means to you. Because I don’t think that “doing it ALL” is balance. Does a balanced life mean: that you cook twice a week, get the laundry washed and folded by Tuesday, play a board game with your family once a week, and make it on time to all your appointments and extra-curricular activities for the kids?  If so, my advice is to keep a schedule and have people over at least twice a month.  {snicker} 

Photobucket


Why?  Well if you have people in your home often, then you have an excuse to keep it clean!  Whatever works, baby.  That’s my success secret.  I also give myself little rewards for keeping my schedule.  For example:   if I get the laundry done by Tuesday night – I schedule a movie night out or drop by my favorite restaurant and grab a dessert to go.  Whatever you are motivated by, find a way to make that a part of your natural routine and reward system.   

You can read more detail about this in my ebook.
Thank you for sharing these great insights, Laurie. You set the bar so high and at the same time showed us how to reach it. Please continue inspiring us!

PS: Roomspiration continues over at Abode Love. We all want to see your master bedrooms so keep us inspired over there.

Garage Takeover Time! + Roomspiration Blog Party

I would like to think that this little ol' blog of moi is getting popular because I've been receiving requests to guest post. Ok, before you shoot me down for bragging, hear my case first. Technically, I'm just a DIYer who always "fly by the seat of my pants" and a decorator of my home who kind of just "wing it," so I accept writers who want to guest post, as long as their post is in keeping with my blog's mission. In the process, I learn a trick or two through their posts, and I'm sure you will, too.

Today is a great day to discuss our oft-neglected space - the garage. How many of us use the garage as dumping site? (Me raising hand) Guilty! Jocelyn has great ideas on what we can do with our garage space. By the way, Jocelyn Anne, is a freelancer who loves to help families make more with less!  She writes primarily about green, sustainable living and can most recently be found promoting the new energy efficient G70 garage heater for Heater Home.


Friends, I'm giving the floor now to Jocelyn!
I can't tell you how thrilled I am to have this opportunity to guest write for Homemaker On a Dime! Today we're going to take a step outside the home (but not far!) and head just next door to the garage. If you're anything like me, this probably brings to mind immediate thoughts of that cold, dark place next door where you store your junk, run in just long enough to get in the car, out the driveway and shut the door before the oil spills can see the light of day or your neighbors' eyes! Hubby probably does stuff out there, but for the most part, it's just: the home of the car. However... I'd really like to challenge that notion today!

In today's economy with families growing just as fast as ever before but space seemingly not keeping pace, every last square inch of our homes becomes that much more precious. Where once moves to bigger homes or backyard add-ons were options, our latest recessionista, frugalista, livin-on-a-dime mindset calls for something different. And, my friends, today that something different is the garage takeover! Perhaps the space you have been looking for and craving so desperately, might just be right in front of you in your garage. As families learn to make do with what they have, the garage has been seeing some amazing transformations lately.

With the arrival of fall already here and winter just around the corner, avoid the would-be-inevitable cabin fever and consider kicking the car to the curb to open up the space for your family. While the weather may not be immediately conducive to a major overhaul with walls or plumbing, just a few additions will allow you to easily make your garage ready for a variety of home "spaces."

For me, a picture is worth a thousand words!  So in case you're lacking inspiration or wondering who in the world would want to consider "living" or "spending time" in the garage, here are some of my favorite ideas:

Organization & The Mud Room

To save space for things like backpacks, purses, boots, books, etc., consider building in some storage compartments, bookshelves and hangers.  You can clear out the entry way to your home and even cut down on what gets piled up in kids rooms.

Work Space/Home Office


With more and more of us looking to do more work at home and cut down commuting or even creating brand new work-from-home opportunities, the garage can quickly become the newest home office.  Check out this picture below of an extremely modern office that would even allow for clients to come by.  If you're not quite up for a remodel quite like this, a simple desk, lamp and bookcase in the corner can make a great side office for just you.  Dress it up with a fresh coat of paint on the walls and some carpet under your toes!

Source: houzz.com via Cristov on Pinterest



Home Gym!


Save money on a gym membership and turn your garage into your own personal home gym where you can sweat in some privacy!  The cement floor is already perfect, just throw in some yoga mats, your weights, perhaps a TV for your favorite workout DVDs and you're set.  This one might be a little more upscale than that, but it's all about the inspiration!






Children's Play Room


Turn your garage into a play room and give your kiddos that much extra room to stretch their legs.  It's one place they can run freely and not have to worry about knocking over the china or making too much noise!  Many stay at home moms have even gone so far as to turn their garage into a daycare to give an extra income to the family.






The Choice is Yours!


Of course, these ideas are just a sampling of what you can do.  You can be as basic as you'd like and make the garage livable on a very dime-like budget.  The cleaning out is probably the toughest part, but once you have all that wide open space and an entirely new room at your disposal, it will make it all worth it.  Look for discounted carpet or tile remnants for the floor, purchase an energy-efficient heater, place some bean bags and an extra TV out there, and if nothing else, you've got a hang out space that will help cut the cabin fever this winter!  Splash paint on the walls, hang a couple pictures, decorate with a few lamps and put a rug on the floor, and for under $100 dollars, you should easily have a new living room suitable for having all kinds of fun events and kiddo sleepovers!


Great ideas to maximize the uses of our garage! Thanks, Jocelyn!

Gina (who, by the way, already guest posted in my Blogging for Dollars Series) from the Shabby Creek Cottage said it best, "You may not get a sale directly from that site every single day – but you are building brand recognition.

What do you do when you want to show appreciation to businesses who give away a sample of their excellent products? Of course, feature them one at a time.

Creative Bloggers' Party & Hop 09.25.11

Yay! I'm happy that you're here :) How was your week? Mine, well, not just last week but the past two weeks have been so nerve-wracking for me. Most of you know my quest for a full-time job for more than a year already and four opportunities presented themselves this month. I had three panel interviews this past week and how I've been wishing so hard that I could tell you I snagged even one of those four opportunities. I got a call Friday morning at 10 a.m. saying, "I'm sorry to let you know that we've selected other candidates for the xyz positions." My current boss, (bless her heart) has been so supportive of me all this time and prior to me going through those interviews. Good thing before this news came in, this mommy-brain of mine has been conditioned through my conversations with her that there's no need to worry because whatever is meant to be is gonna be. The Universe will take its course and will give what's the best for all of the candidates vying for the job. The acceptance of whatever the outcome has already been in place so when I got the phone call, it was easy for me to bounce back and stay positive to move on and wait for the outcome of the other positions I applied for. And admittedly, those 2 ladies chosen are phenomenal and have miles of experience ahead of me so they really deserve it. I thought that's the end of it so I just went on with my tasks but around 10:30 am, I got another call from the same department asking me to go meet with them. Hm, I wondered why. It was so sweet of them to tell me that I was just this close and so many other good things about my job performance. They didn't have to meet with me anymore but that was such a classy gesture for them to do so. That was really special. I won't go into many other details of the things we quickly talked about (to my fellow employees who read this blog, I'll torture you with this suspense - LOL!) but it's all good. Whether I get offered a full-time job or not, I have this trust that things will work out for the best of everybody.

Now, on to our party. Welcome to our 26th week of CBPH!

Co-hosts
Effective October, I will no longer have co-hosts. I enjoyed having co-hosts and many of them became great blogging bffs but as time goes by with all the demands of mommyhood and wifehood, it's no longer feasible for me. With that said, please welcome my co-hosts for today, Liz and Dusti. Let me give you a brief background of these great bloggers.

Liz at The Brambleberry Cottage hosts a blog party called Time Travel Thursday so please feel free to join in and show off your projects. Please start looking out, too, for her brand new Etsy shop that will be opening soon. It will be filled with cool vintage items and many repurposed vintage...like what she shows on her blog. Any idea what her etsy shop is called? Well, of course, Brambleberry Cottage 2.

Dusti at Want To Get Crafty describes herself as follows: "I consider myself a copy cat crafter. Thank goodness there are tons of creative people in the world who think of all these adorable things in the blogworld so all I have to do is look at them and then copy with my own spin. My favorite saying being 'Imitation is the highest form of flattery' (hence the name of many of my posts). Luckily I have a wonderful husband who indulges my imitation, especially if it is baking or cooking. And of course my frugality does help to be able to make it myself instead of purchase it. Blog parties are how I get so many of my great ideas."

Hope you'll visit these great bloggers and follow them, too.

Blog Tip
Kim at 733 Blog showed how to add a Pin It button to your blog. Very useful for us who are Pinterest-addict.

Favorite Blog
You clicked, inlinkz tallied. The readers' favorite blog post this past week out of 239 links, being the most viewed post, is a three-way tie - for the first time in CBPH history.

Taking the three top spots are Nan's nursery post (who, by the way, was my co-host last week),




Abbie from Lovin' Our Chaos' painted furniture,




and Domesticated Nomad's mason jars.





Our Party
To the main course of this post.
For those of you joining us for the first time, we only have 2 easy, simple rules:

1) Link up your creative post - can be a DIY project, decor, photography, crafts, recipes, poem, thrift finds, link party, or that informative syndicated post that can make us laugh, or cry - in short, whatever you're proud of! And if you like to link more creative posts, go for it! We'd love to see them :) (No links to businesses or giveaways. We have another party for these exclusively every Tuesday called Market Your Biz & Giveaways at 5 pm, PST.)

2) Follow as many blogs as you desire, preferably starting first with the one who linked before you and after you, before branching out, and let them know by leaving a comment. (Following me and the co-host will be very much appreciated, and we definitely follow back. Just let us know you're following.)

Displaying the party button on your blog, while optional, is very much appreciated :) It will help you remember to come back and link up to the the happiest blog party on the block (ahem!). It will also help others find their way to the party which we all love because the more the merrier :)

Link opens up every Sunday at 5:00 pm, PST and ends Friday at 11:59 pm.

Because I like something different, I'm using the reverse entry for inlinkz - so the most recent participant will show up as number 1, thus giving everybody a chance to have the #1 spot.



Friends, go ahead and get to know each :) One followed blogger is one gained friend. And please, don't forget to join my Market Your Biz and Giveaways blog party every Tuesday at 5 pm, PST. It's your chance for free promotion of your family-friendly business and giveaways.




Burning question: Do you work at home or outside your home? Or are you a stay-at-home mom?

Since I'm a part-time employee, I'm a half stay-at-home mom and a half employee outside my home. How about you?



Fall Decorating That Costs Next To Nothing

When I bought this $18 Goodwill Dresser to turn it into a hallway console (read: hide kids' toys), I also had the vision of making it into our "mantel" where I can display the seasonal decors in our home. Since fall is by far the most colorful and glorious season for me, I set out to work to have the lovely fall colors displayed.

Photobucket

This is the angle coming from our dining area.

Photobucket

Our lamps got an instant fall makeover by simply taping the fall leaves I bought at the Dollar Tree Store.

Photobucket

The apothecary jar is also decked out by the red container fillers - also from Dollar Tree Store. The pumpkins and gourds also came from the Dollar Tree Store. Can you tell that I bought this picture frame from 99 Cents Store? Unbelievable, right?

Photobucket

The ceramic salt and pepper shakers fall leaves are from a garage sale to the tune of $3.00. I know it's so unconventional to put salt and pepper shakers on display other than the kitchen but heck, these are what I got so I'm gonna use them.

Photobucket

The apothecary jars were from TJ Maxx and they're serving such a good use at this time.

Photobucket

How about a close up of our fall-en lamp?

Photobucket

That fall leaf plate where the apothecary jar sits is also a garage sale find - only $2 - squeal!

Photobucket

I'm kinda digging this combo.

Photobucket

On the opposite side is this $24.99 Goodwill Organizer whose purpose is to reinforce the theme displayed in our hallway console. I also taped the fall leaves around the mirror to easily convey the autumn's feel.

Photobucket

The bunch of flowers are from the Dollar Tree Store, and the jar used to be a truffles container.

Photobucket

It's one of those moments when I just use whatever I have so if you'll notice, the cloth that's wrapping the stems of the flowers is a napkin that I snagged in a garage sale for $1 a pair.

Photobucket

Here's a closer view.

Photobucket

Here's another pair of salt and pepper shakers that I put on top of the fall leaves.

Photobucket

There you have it my friends, the fall look of our home. Can't wait to see how you decked out your homes for fall.

Blogging For Dollars Series - Guest Post by Carolyn from Carolyn's Homework

Carolyn is a freelance marketing manager and a creative blogger who loves to create new things. She's the power behind the creative blog called Carolyn's Homework. She posts about inspirational creative ideas and craft projects with a goal to maintain an appealing and chic aesthetic to all her posts.


Here are some great info about her blog. Homework has been featured on several well-known sites including:
- Design Mom
- Crescendoh
- Designing Moms
- Paper Crave
- Desideri Magazine

Homework is currently ranked #17 on Crafts / Top Mommy Blogs and #72 on Babble's Top Mom Craft Blogs. With all her credentials, who wouldn't want to hear what she has to say? Friends, let's all welcome Carolyn!

I’m really happy to be here at Homemaker on a Dime. I’m Carolyn and my blog is homework where I post about crafts, diy and all types of creative inspiration. The name homework was originally my business name from when I worked at home as a marketing consultant. When I started blogging, I kept the name since it still fit.

homework

If you blog, write daily posts, host link parties or create your own projects, then you know that blogging can be a lot of work. For some, blogging is a hobby and they write for the pure joy of networking and sharing ideas. There are also many bloggers who hope to make a little money from their blog.

I’m certainly not an expert on this topic, but I can share with you what I’ve learned from my experiences. When you first start a blog, the most important thing is content. To even begin looking for areas to earn money, you need an audience and good, solid posts will attract visitors to your blog.


Once you have your blog established, are posting regularly and have a following, a good starting place is Google AdSense. You’ve probably seen this widget on many blogs. The ads are matched to your blog content and if a reader clicks on the ad, you are paid per click.


Other affiliate programs are Amazon Associates and Share-a-Sale. With both of these programs, you choose from a wide variety of advertisers and once approved, you place their ads on your blog. Ideally, you want to choose advertisers that would be of interest to your audience. Both Amazon Associates and Share-a-Sale pay you a commission for each sale you generate through your blog.



There are many ways to generate income from your blog. Between affiliate programs, pay-per-post programs, product reviews and more you can start earning income once your blog is established. However, be aware, as good as it sounds; it takes a lot of clicks and sales to generate income.

That’s why I feel some of the best advice I received when I started blogging was to branch out and not rely solely on my blog for income. A good way to supplement blog income is to start an Etsy Shop. If you have a homemade product it’s easy to start an Etsy or other type of online shop.


No matter how you want to generate income, you want to stay true to your blog. A blog that is too heavy with ads will not be as visually appealing. Too many paid posts or product reviews could turn off readers. Finding the right balance is the key and as you become a more established blogger, more interesting opportunities could become available.

These are just my experiences. What works for one blog may not work for another blog. Doing research and talking to other bloggers is a great way to find out more information on how to generate income from your blog.

The blogosphere is filled with generous people who are willing to share ideas. Here at Homemaker on a Dime, SJ is a perfect example of blog generosity. She hosts a weekly link party and a weekly Market Your Biz and Giveaway blog party and has started this new series, Blogging for Dollars.


I hope if you have a moment, you’ll come visit me at my blog, homework.
Thank you SJ for inviting me over to talk about Blogging for Dollars.

We'll definitely visit your blog, Carolyn! I, for one, am so glued to all the creative inspirations you share. Thank you so much for sharing your money-making secrets.

Before I end this post, just a quick announcement that Roomspiration continues to Jena at Involving Color. Please link up your dining room posts for all of us to swoon and enjoy.
