Eclipse Party Ideas

Are you ready for the big eclipse of 2017? If you're one of the hundreds of thousands of people who live or will be going to the "Path of Totality" to view the total eclipse then you'll want to be prepared. Officials are predicting heavy traffic throughout the path during the eclipse which means you'll want to get where you're going in plenty of time and be prepared to stay for a while. We'll be gathering with lots of friends and family to view this historic event and will have eclipse related foods and drinks to make the event into a party.

Love these eclipse viewing party ideas! Food, drinks, and music!

5 Simple Ways to Monetize Your Blog

A few tried and true ways to allow your blog to provide pocket change and then some.


Blogging as a business. Who would have thought?? When I began blogging in 2011 there weren't many people making a income from it. Sure, there were some who had figured it all out early and were doing great, but as a whole, people didn't do blogging for money. It was for fun, therapy, an outlet or portfolio. But it still required hours of work just like a "real" job.
