    Hi Crystal! Thanks so much for sharing my Cheddar & Potato Soup (do die for!) recipe on your Facebook page! I was so excited when I saw that! …and really appreciative!!!

    I really enjoyed reading this post about your stats. I started my blog out with but recently switched to and am in that funky transition phase. I understand some of the basic stuff….but not totally! I scrolled to the bottom of your page to see who did your blog design because it is so cute. I emailed her and am waiting for a reply.

    Do you have any suggestions for starting to earn money with your blog (I haven’t got the slightest clue how to go about that yet) or other tips for getting your blog more recognized?

    Thanks again SO MUCH for sharing my link!!
