Hi there, and thanks for stopping by to scan my unsolicited advice for beginning bloggers post! Now, I am well aware that this post is a bit of a risk. I am not a professional blogger, and I absolutely do not claim to have a plethora of knowledge on the subject. I definitely don’t want to come across as saying ‘blog like me’. The reason I felt compelled to write this post (and am a bit nervous as to how this will be perceived) is that, well, honestly, I’m big on etiquette. As in – saying ‘Please’, ‘Thank you’, ‘May I’ and telling someone when they have something in their teeth. I’ve spent a lot of time cringing at posts with something in their teeth. Although I’m sure that there are plenty of people out there who cringe at some of my posts with the same vigor.
Blog networking is one of the most undervalued and underused strategies for most. But I believe it is at the core for growing a blog. You will find links in this post to help eliminate some of the work; all you have to do is LIKE, COMMENT and FOLLOW others. The more you network with other blogs, the more other blogs will network with you!

Here is an excerpt from The Courage To Shift’s about page:
“Welcome To The Courage To Shift! I share inspiration on various topics including my 70 weight loss journey (maintained 11 years), my 7 year journey to becoming debt free (including a son graduating debt free from college) and my journey to self-worth and self-discovery post divorce (including returning to school at 49 and starting my Transformation Life Coach business at 50!). I frequently share motivational quotes and sprinkle in random thoughts about life in general!”
You can find The Courage To Shift’s logo in my sidebar and on the Partner’s Page at the top of my website! When you visit be sure to tell her Danny sent ya!
I am sitting here thinking about family. Mine are a comfort and they’re there for me and all my issues. I think they realize now what is going to be like from now on, but they will be there.
Here is my dad with me and my two daughters. On the left is the nurse. Both have 2 children. I don’t have new pictures of the kids and besides they really don’t like the children on social media too much.
