When I started blogging, we had just moved away from family and friends and I did it to keep in touch with them. There was a point on my previous blog where I not only promoted my own business, but had advertising, affiliate links and got products for free for reviewing them. Blogging this way can be a great source of income especially for stay-at-home-moms.

In the end, I decided that this was not the way I wanted to blog and one of the reasons I took a break and eventually changed directions...and blogs. I'm not at all saying it's wrong, I'm saying it wasn't right for me.

So I blog here for my own enjoyment and therapy. I pray that even though I share my thoughts, opinions, successes and struggles, that God will be glorified. Any blogs, websites, products, services etc. that I mention or link to are because I want to and it serves my purpose, not because I'm sponsored or being compensated. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question.

Finally, while I am queen of my castle, this is my blog and I am queen here as well.  I am not like everyone else, I don't fit in anywhere, and chances are pretty good that we will have different views or opinions on things.  I'm all right with that...really...as long as everything here remains pleasant.  But I am proudly intolerant of those thoughtless people who seem to have nothing better to do than try and belittle people with their nasty, ugly comments. These people will be quickly banished from my online kingdom.
