Turn It Up Tuesday Is Turning 25! 10 comments


Last week was a great week for me. Hope yours was too. I did my first guest post as a weekly contributor for Laina Turner’s blog, The Art of Living Fabulously. You can find the post here. My posts will appear on Laina’s blog every Friday, so be sure to stop by The Art of Living Fabulously.

I also had my feature day on The SITS Girls website. If you aren’t familiar with The SITS Girls…they are a blogging community of 75,000 bloggers who network and support each other through posts, forums, and social media. Each weekday a blogger is featured on the website and all of the SITStahs wish her well and visit her blog to comment on her posts. Last Wednesday was my SITS DAY! I hope to attend one of the Bloggy Boot Camp conferences that SITS is hosting this year. You can read my full SITS Girls feature here.

eggs in a muffin pan

Stephanie chose Eggs On The Go! from Organizer By Day. “These look delicious, are high in protein, super easy to make, and can also be made ahead of time for a quick breakfast on the mornings we are running late. I will be trying these for sure!”

Jessica chose Teach your son to be a Gentleman, please. from Living in Mommywood. “As a mommy of 2 boys, I wholeheartedly agree! I hardly see “gentlemen” in today’s world. When I was “dating” a guy would get awesome points from me by opening doors, pulling chairs, etc. It felt good and made me feel like a “lady”. So, as a mommy, it is something I teach my boys to be good “gentlemen” to ladies. It’s good manners and something our world needs more of :).”

strawberry lemon bar

Cathy chose Strawberry Lemon Squares from Organizer by Day. “I love anything lemon and lemon squares are at the top of the list! I never thought to add jam to them; awesome idea! I can’t wait to try this recipe!”

017

April chose Back to Basics: Herbs & Spices from Budget Girl. “I’m working to build up my spice cabinet after my move across country. These are some great tips to remind me what I should focus on to make sure my dishes come out delicious.”

Kimberly chose 71 Sites for Monetizing Your Blog from The Missing Niche. “Turn It Up Tuesday #24 was chock full of great posts. It was hard to pick just one! But Karen’s post hit home for me. She didn’t just provide a list of 71 sites for monetizing your blog. She compiled it into an alphabetized PDF file with her own descriptions, requirements, tips, and bullet points! She makes it so easy for you.”

Melissa chose Wonder Bread and Other Poor Life Decisions from Meltdowns, Breakdowns, and Time-outs. “This piece had me laughing from beginning to end, shaking my head in agreement, thinking, “This woman is my kindred spirit.” It’s the brutal honesty of parenting – do we even know what we are doing and are we screwing up our children forever? – blended with the humor that the experience can only bring us if we let it. Definitely one to make you remember that you’re not doing as badly as you might think.”

womens history month

Stacey chose Women’s History Month – Role Models past, present & future from Looking on the Sunnyside. “I am always so intrigued by stories of powerful women, mostly because while growing up I was told constantly about the differences of men and women, women always being made to sound less than me. As I got older, I realized that the women could be equally as strong and successful as men and sometimes even more so. I want so much for my daughter to have that strength to be able to accomplish her dreams as she grows into adulthood…something that took me well into my 30’s to realize that I had that strength!”

Gage-sleeping-sweet

Natasha chose When a 4 yr. Old Drops the F-Bomb from Forever Fitting In. “I just laughed the entire time reading this post, just thinking about all of the instances that my son has dropped not only the F-bomb but some other colorful words as well. Many of us have, and many of us still have to go through, this experience. Great post!”

The post with the most clicks was Peanut Butter Apple Crisp from The Pinterested Parent.

      My SITS Day was amazing, Joi. I went straight to your post on how to prepare for your SITS Day when I got the heads-up that I would be featured. So helpful!

  • Adrian

    Sorry I missed your SITS day. I haven’t been very good about commenting on there lately. If you do get a chance to go to one of their events, by all means GO! I’ve been to three of them and a number of other conferences and they are a wonderful experience. Really helps you grow your blog and find new bloggy friends to help you on your journey.

      I’ve only heard great things about the Bloggy Boot Camps. Thanks Adrian!
