The longest post EV-UR

It’s been awhile since I’ve done a post of random stuff…

So guess what you get from me today!! {SQUEE!!}

I just heard the internet breathe a collective sigh of relief, didn’t I? ‘Cause I know y’all’ve been waiting for it.

1. Speaking of Blissfully Domestic, did you know that we are going to be re-launching a super cool huge new site in the next few months!? And along with that comes the need for more contributors. We are expanding in all areas and adding some new topics.

If you are interested in being considered for one of these topics, please email me at lookingtowardsheaven [at] gmail [dot] com and let me know the topic. We’ve already had tremendous response to our calls for writers. And guess what – we still need more! THAT’S how big it is gonna be!

New topics-

  • Gardening
  • Blogging (how-to, tips)
  • Parenting -Special Needs
  • Finances
  • Green/Eco Living
  • Entertaining
  • Decorating
  • Crafts

We are expanding these areas-

  • Decorating
  • Etsy love
  • Cooking
  • Parenting
  • Crafts for kids
  • Crafting (tutorials, tips)
  • Beauty
  • Celebrity buzz

2. I am adding blog design to my professional repertoire. For now, I am looking for 2 or 3 guinea pigs [ok – I know that no guinea pigs read my blog; maybe they do, but they just don’t know how to type or spell] bloggers who will allow me to beautify their blogs. I will be doing Blogger (new and classic), WordPress and Typepad. If you are interested in allowing me to do a FREE design for you, please email me at the same address as above.

3. I know that everybody and their grandma has been popping up doing blog design, but with over 112.8 million blogs out there, I think there is room for me.

4. Are you attending SheSpeaks? Be sure to head over to Lysa’s blog and add your blog to the Mr. Linky so that we can all nose around each others blogs before meeting.

5. I love this post at Anne Jackson/FlowerDust’s blog asking what things we feel we can’t say at church or around other Christians. Mine’s on there. Along with nearly 200 others.

6. Did you know that WalMart carries a carrot cake ice cream? I love carrot cake (it was our wedding cake) and I worried it would be disgusting. Ummm, unfortunately not. I could eat a gallon for breakfast.

7. It has chunks of cream cheese frosting in it.

8. You can thank me later. But first, you must run out an purchase a gallon (or 10).

9. Something else you will surely thank me for [when you realize you’ve wasted all day] is this game.

10. And its evil sibling here.

11. I’m still in the process of categorizing and organizing it, but did you know that I (we/BD) have a CafePress store? It’s true! AND it has mommy blogger items.

12. It is almost 3:00 AM and I am still sitting at this computer.

13. I’m gonna need a big pot of coffee when I get up…


Come back later for even more rip-roaring fun when I post photos of me brushing my teeth. [I jest… it’s just photos of a house finch building a nest right outside my dining window.]

    No longer an RSS virgin.

    Yours is the first blog I’ve subscribed to using a feed.

    At least I think that is what I just did.

    So much technology & so little brain !

    OH MY!!! How many questions are in this impossible quiz!?!?!?! As you guessed it…I’m wasting my day already….


  13. http://TLC says

    I bet you are going to do a great job with the blog design, and have more than enough guinea pigs, but if you wanted one more, I would throw my chocolate your way.

    And I hate you for the link to the Impossible Quiz!! (ok, not really)

    My T13 is up, come check it out.
