Blogging Made Simple

I love blogging, but I’ll be honest —it can be amazing !

I used to feel I can’t blog as I don’t know the technical side of it.I am not a software engineer.I don’t know coding so i thought I wont be able to start my blog.

blogging made simple

Do you ever feel the same way?  Maybe you’ve even wished there was someone out there who could just show you, step-by-step, exactly what you needed to do to create a successful blog.

I am SO glad I did!

Since starting Elite Blog Academy®, I have

I learned I should not compare my BEGINNING to some else’s middle.I learned to  schedule blog posts.Learned that I should be consistent in my writing.

In fact, it even comes with a 100% money-back guarantee, which means you’ve literally got nothing to lose.

But don’t wait!

This year, the doors officially open on March 5th, but EBA® founder Ruth Soukup is offering a free training series the week before hand called Blogging Made Simple that I highly recommend!

An easy solution for your Meal Planning in 2018.

When it comes to getting meals on the table, are you tired of:

  1. Scrambling to make something decent out of what’s in your fridge
  2. Resorting to compromise or convenience foods because you’re short on time
  3. Battling weight gain and feeling discouraged that the family isn’t eating better
  4. Wasting money on restaurants, food that goes bad, and too many last-minute grocery runs
  5. And feeling like cooking is a burden instead of a joy?

I totally get it, because I’ve struggled with those very same things.

*This post contains affiliate links

But 2018 can be the year you take control of what your family is eating once and for all.

 

You’ll have a plan that makes it easier to get homemade food on the table, eat in a way that supports your weight-loss goals, make dinner time less stressful (even on those busy days and weeks) and save money by eating at home more (and wasting less).

Here’s the solution you’ve been waiting for…

Healthy Meal Planning

It’s the Ultimate Healthy Meal Planning Bundle and it’s the busy cook’s answer to eating healthier this year.

What’s in this bundle, you ask? Well, everything you need to make meal planning, grocery shopping, cooking and eating great food easy as pie.

 

This is how it works:

If you want recipes & meal plans created specifically for the way you eat (Paleo, Keto, vegan, gluten free, budget-friendly, just to name a few), you can pick the mini-bundle that suits you best and pay just $27.

If you’d prefer to have the whole collection of made-for-you meal plans, organized shopping lists, no-brainer tips, PLUS over 3,800 recipes for today’s most popular ways of cooking and eating, pay just $20 more and you’ll get every single thing in this bundle.

I’m telling you, this makes meal planning so much easier!

Some of my favorite food bloggers contributed, so I really can’t speak highly enough about the quality and value of what’s inside, for less than the price of a single meal out!

Trust me, this is one investment that will pay for itself multiple times over.

Want to check it out and get your own Ultimate Healthy Meal Planning Bundle?

This is how it works:

  • Visit the website Ultimate Meal Planning Bundle, take a quick look at all the yummy food you’ll be making with this package, then click the “Get my bundle now!”button to go through their simple and secure 3-step checkout process.
  • You’ll receive an email with a login to their online access portal, where you’ll begin downloading all your eCookbooks and printable meal plans.
  • Use their Getting Started Guide to choose your first meals or find the ready-made plan that’s perfect for you!

The most important detail, though, is that this bundle is available for just 8 days!

After Friday night, January 5th, the sale ends and you’d have to buy all of these products individually.

It’s even backed by a 30 day full money-back happiness guarantee, so you can make sure it’s right for you.

Their customer service is amazing, and they truly want to make sure you’re taken care of and that you love your bundle.

Simplify mealtimes & eat better in 2018 with the Ultimate Healthy Meal Planning Bundle.

How to start a blog in 2018 using Bluehost

Do you want to start a blog?

I have few of my friends always asking me,” How to start a blog?”. I told its easy to do.It was not easy for me in the beginning but later I started studying about it and then I learned.

So for that friends I want to explain to you, “How to start a blog?”

How to start a blog in 2018 with bluehost

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
  2. Decide your domain name : Domain name means decide your blog name such as https://michaelhyatt.com/ , momlifehappylife.com ,……etc.
  3. Decide hosting for your blog : Best hosting I would suggest is BLUEHOST. 
  4. Decide your platform : The best blogging platforms are WordPress.org, wordpress.com,blogger.com, tumbler.com,squarespace.com, etc….
  5. And the best blogging platform most of the people are using are wordpress.org and wordpress.com.

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!
