how i increased my g+views graphic

Cindy chose How I Increased My Google+ Views 600,000 Views in 4 Weeks from On Bliss Street. “This method makes total sense, duh, why didn’t I think of that? I know there are lots of rumors about G+ going away and/or changing but it does help us with Google so I think that we should invest our time in it while we have it.”

Cathy also chose this post.

Free also chose this post. “I chose this one because I’ve been thinking about putting more time into Google+. I wasn’t sure if I want to focus on Google+ or not. I now think that I will be give G+ a try.”

Stacey chose Bully Me Bitches from Chronicles of a Lumpy Person. “What an amazing and oh so true post! I have always struggled with my weight and it is of course something that often happens as we get older…those few extra pounds. I find it so sad when I see people bullying others, when it is adults especially, it is just unnecessary. At least for kids, maybe they have just not been taught any better than to behave in such a way. We are all beautiful in our own unique and amazing ways! Thank you so much for sharing!”

square21-e1427841890468

Free chose Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff: Tips for Potty Training from The Resourceful Mama. “I chose this one because I have a 2 year old and I’m about to start the potty training process with her. I haven’t potty trained a toddler in 15 years so this is a great refresher for me. I need to breathe and relax and not sweat the small stuff.”

pasta-salad-recipe-roundup

Lisa chose The Pasta Salad Round up from Summer Scraps. “Living in the south, I am always looking for dishes that I don’t have to heat the oven up and this post is great for that. Pasta dishes can be a side or a main meal with little heating of the stove!”

Latisha chose Spring Style with Pink Blush- Maxi Dresses from Sandy a la Mode. “I love these maxi dresses and totally wish I could wear them. My sense of style does not match my height.

    Lou Lou Girls

    1. April Noelle says:

      Surely. I’ll be by. 🙂

  2. Robin Rue (@massholemommy) says:

    There is a ton of great stuff linked up! I might have something to add….

  3. Heading over to check out your guest post! 😉

  4. Diana Villa says:

    I entered the giveaway! Thank you so much for the great post and photos 😀

  5. Melanie S. says:

    There are a lot of great links here! I’m going to try not to look at the food-related ones until after I’ve had dinner though. 🙂

  6. Jeanine says:

    Wow so much great stuff I will have to loop back around and check it all out! How awesome!

  7. Liz Mays says:

    These are some awesome posts, I’ll have to look through he linkups. That blackberry cornbread pudding looks delicious.

  8. Pam says:

    There are so many great links here this week. I can’t even decide which one I want to visit first.

  9. Amber NElson says:

    Wow, this is all great information. I will bookmark to look at more in depth later.

  10. I am a homeschool mom – with 5 kids (3 of them that are older which I homeschool) and the other 2 are younger. I just set out activities and toys for the younger ones while I homeschool the older ones.

    1. April Noelle says:

      My little girls won’t sit still. I wish I could leave them to their own devices sometimes, but if I’m paying attention to one, I have to pay attention to all.

  11. What a great linkup. I need more time in the day to go through them al.

  12. Pam says:

    I might have to start with the pasta salad recipes. One of my favorites. Then I will have to take some time to look at all of the other great things going on here.

  13. I’ll have to drop in on this link up party next week.

    1. April Noelle says:

      Great! I’ll be glad to have you back.

  14. Paula Schuck says:

    Nice! So many different links to go through and I saw some fantastic recipes. I am going to bookmark this page and take a closer look.

  15. Melissa Smith says:

    So many amazing link ups!!!! I know what I’ll be doing the next couple of hours. But first, those Paleo Snickerdoodle Cupcakes are calling my attention…

  16. Angela says:

    So many great features this week! Thanks for the link up.

  17. You have amazing ideas in here. The food looks amazing. Thanks for hosting

  18. Ginger Mommy says:

    There are so many links and I can not wait to go through them. The baked banana bread looks delicious.

    1. April Noelle says:

      Doesn’t it though?

  19. Lesley says:

    I’ve been homeschooling awhile and I don’t think I’ve ever had to pull my toddler records. ha! Cute and well organized idea though.

    1. April Noelle says:

      With the two of them, they are learning so fast and there is no “curriculum” and I found that I was repeating certain things… finding out by my daughter saying “I know that already”. It more helps me determine which resources I use and help guide me in how much time each of them are taking. It’s flexible, but at least for me, it’s a guideline. I can get sidetracked easily.

  20. Rosey says:

    I like the sponsor. That’s nice that they don’t just book for you and go. Having a little help when you book travel can be a great thing!

  21. Ashley Gill says:

    I am reviewing a few of your featured posts! You have some great stuff here!

  22. Chrissy Mazzocchi says:

    Wow! These are all great articles to read! I had to check out that lipstick post and see what cosmetic company made that color!

  23. I would have loved to homeschool my boys if I could afford it. There are many things about the educational system that leave a lot to be desired.

    1. April Noelle says:

      We’ll see if we can afford it into the long term. For now, they are still preschool age.

  24. Babita says:

    I feel homeschooling requires a lot of patience. I am not a patient person. I however have great respect for families who do homeschool.

  25. Megan @ C'mon Get Crafty says:

    Both of my boys are home with me two days a week, so I will have to investigate all the great links here for ideas! I definitely need help keeping track of learning activities for when they are home, so it isn’t a free for all.

  26. Amanda Love says:

    I have been thinking about homeschooling my toddler because I have so much time on my hands right now. There are some good posts in the link up, will have to check out a few.
