5000 Facebook Followers- Let’s Celebrate with a Giveaway!

Blog post

It was my goal to reach 5000 Facebook followers by the end of 2017 and we just barely made it! I want to get my recipes out to the world and social media is the best outlet for it. Your likes, shares and comments are very important to reaching others who might not know about my page. The more active and engaged followers this page has, the easier it is to get companies to work with me.

As a blogger I have been working non stop for the last year and a half without an income. This page has brought in zero income, in fact it has been a huge expense. However, I kept going and putting in the work because I knew I was reaching people and making a difference. However, after publishing the book the bills have piled up and I need to create an income in order to continue.

An income is not easy to do… unless you have a large active and engaged following.

There are basically 3 ways to make an income as a blogger…

  1. Create a product and sell it.
  2. Place adds and affiliate links on your site. When readers click these links and order things through them, the website makes a small percentage.
  3. Sponsored posts. This is when a company compensates you to use their products in a post. I have by far found this to be the best way to make money. However, in the blogging world I am still considered small beans. Getting companies willing to compensate is not easy.

In conclusion… every page like, comment, share and PIN- they all count and are greatly appreciated! Please continue to share my page and be active. If you like my recipes, use my affiliate links, buy my book and keep me blogging, because I simply couldn’t imagine doing anything else. This is my passion and a huge part of my life.

Thank you!

    Thank you for your wonderful recipes.
    I noticed that on today’s New Day episode (12/29) that you used a Pyrex measuring cup to melt chocolate chips on a stove top. I was concerned because I had a Pyrex 9 x 13 dish explode in my oven this Christmas eve for no known reason and on searching online for a possible reason – I learned that there are thousands of incidents of the newer Pyrex formula exploding and sometimes causing severe injuries. Please see link to well known consumer expert Clark Howard’s recent experience with exploding pyrex at this link:
    I understand that Pyrex does not recommend using their products on the stove top among many other siuations that are not safe for their newer fomula and hopefully others are becoming aware of this. See this utube video from Consumer Resports 2012 on the changed Pyrex formula. http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/80beats/2012/09/13/pyrex-glass-isnt-as-shatterproof-as-it-once-was-report-finds/#.WkafMZNDGP8.email I’m discarding all of my glass Pyrex dishes.

      Hi Jeri,

      I actually melted the chocolate in a pan and then I poured the melted chocolate into the pyrex to make dipping easier. I am so sorry that you went through that. That is horrible! I hope that you are all safe and well.
