My blogging journey:

My blogging journey started 3-4 years back.

After leaving my job as a teacher( busy working mom) I became busy stay at home mom,but as I knew I have to have an earning of my own.

So I tried to search the google for work from jobs, but as there also some sites who guarantee to give you money on working from home  and you get so much money, so I tried at some and got cheated ,then I asked one of my friend what work from home jobs can I do as I have experience as school teacher.She told me to write and publish an ebook on Amazon,but as I was not knowing how to of ebook publishing and marketing, I failed(But in that duration I learned also.)

Then after searching on google I came to know that I can earn money by starting a blog.(I was having a free blog on blogger on vegetarian recipes,that time there was only one blogging platform,then came wordpress).

As since from childhood I had a dream creating a Cookbook of my recipes( which I learned from my mom and grandmother) and sharing that with other beginner people(who wants to learn cooking)through writing and publishing a book.( In my childhood there was no internet ,no blogging, no websites.We use to get to learn new things either from our elders or through books)

So then I thought of creating a vegetarian cooking blog and sharing the knowledge with other moms in the world.But as searched on google there were already so many cooking blogs out there.As I was new to these I created a free cooking blog on blogger and that time that was the only blogging platform .

Then in year 2015 I created an another free blog on wordpress platform.

You can see the blog in the image below:

Then after researching google I came to know that to start making a earning thorough a blog I should have a self hosted blog.

Then in year I created a self hosted blog through Bluehost.

Being a  newbie( i.e.not knowing coding much and setting)  I had to struggle very much for setting up my blog ,but thanks to Bluehost and Godaddy and my other blogger friends and mentors for helping me while setting up my blog.

Bluehost customer care helped me very much.I am very thankful to Bluehost for helping me every time to fix my problem related to my blog settings.

The Bluehost videos from bluehost YouTube channel also helped me a lot.

This was my story of starting my blog .

Now lets learn , How to start a blog?

Steps for starting a blog:

  1. Decide your Niche :Decide your niche means “Decide on what topic you want to blog about?”  Decide whether you want to start a : Food blog/Photography blog/lifestyle blog/oraganization blog/gaming blog/fitness blog/…..etc

4 Amazing FREE Talks for Building Healthy Habits and Life Skills in Kids

 

Hey,

Here’s another awesome update from the Positive Parenting Conference !

Sumitha has published the talks for Track #4. This track and the next one look at building healthy habits and life skills in our kids so we can send them out in the world some day with confidence and pride!

Here are the lovely talks they have (shared with permission)


Today we have Part 1 of “Habits & Life Skills”. Here are the lovely talks in this track…

  1. ​​Key Responsibilities EVERY Child Should Know How to Shoulder with Dr. Deborah Gilboa.

In this talk Dr. Gilboa and I discuss:

    • Why we need to teach our kids the 3 R’s – respect, responsibility and resilience – from an early age
    • What are some of the age-appropriate responsibilities our kids should have as they grow up

 

  • How to get them to do it when it is so tempting to just throw in the towel and do it ourselves

 

Dr. Gilboa is without a doubt the funnest interviewee I’ve spoken to in this year’s conference. She has an amazing sense of humor… And the best part? She packs in a ton of information, tips and ideas between the laughs. I can’t think of a single parent I wouldn’t recommend this talk to! Go watch it!

  1. How to Help Your Child Overcome Picky Eating with Maryann Jacobsen.

In this talk Maryann and I discuss:

  • Why some kids tend to be Picky Eaters
  • A wholesome, positive approach for handling picky eating
  • Some of Maryann’s best tips for helping our kids develop healthy eating habits

Has your child ever looked at something you labored over to cook and declared it “yucky” and inedible? Ever had any dinner time battles? (Who hasn’t right?) Do you have a child who will eat everything in one food group, but won’t touch another with a 10 foot pole? This talk is for you!

  1. How to Teach Your Kids the Fine Art of Conflict Resolution with Leeza Steindorf.

In this talk Leeza and I discuss:

  • How conflict is unavoidable
  • Some of the key skills we need to teach our kids to learn the fine art of conflict resolutions
  • Several example scenarios

Whether you have more than one child and the sibling fights are driving you mad, or you have just one like me and you worry that they aren’t learning conflict resolution skills naturally, there are some great ideas in this talk that can be of immense help!

 

  1. 5 Important Money Lessons Every Parent Must Teach Their Kids​ with Holly D. Reid.

In this talk Holly and I discuss:

  • The 5 important money lessons as the title says 🙂
  • What we should buy and what we should let kids buy for themselves
  • Allowances, chores (paid and unpaid), entrepreneurship, investing and so much more!

This is such a packed talk – I can’t believe how much we were able to cover in just 1 hour! Holly was so generous in sharing her ideas and all of them are extremely practical ones that you can start applying in your families right away. Whether you are a pro at personal finance, or struggle with it yourself, I promise you, you will have several “aha” moments during this talk!
