I spent some time last week asking myself why we blog.
I came up with 3 main reasons
1. We blog to sell a service.
2 We blog to sell a product.
3. We blog to post ideas, recipes, fun times with family and friends.
Does your blog fit into one of those main categories? And even more importantly, are you actually USING the products and services offered on the blogs?
I am happy to tell you I am using the products and services offered by bloggers I know!
Oils! Have you checked out the oils? Loretta Smith and DoTERRA Essention Oils
I have peppermint. WOW! It works for whatever ails ya!
And then there’s Send Out Cards. I LOVE Meli Horwitz and Send Out Cards! Have you tried them yet? They’re perfect for thank you cards (I send them out regularly) and reminders, birthday cards, sympathy cards and, my most recent find: Oops, when you need just the right words to apologize!
So, here are 2 items I purchased for Harper.
The Harper Doll. From Real Sisters Gifts & Accessories. Check out their facebook page! They custom designed this doll to look like Harper (red hair and all!)
The Harper Bear! From Hand Knitted Dolls & Teddy Bears. Talk about a great teddy bear!
Norma. What can I say about Norma? If you haven’t joined Norma’s business group, you are MISSING OUT! It’s luv luv luv. And I’m honored to tell you she designed the cover pages for my facebook and blog pages, too! Want great coaching on social media? Norma’s your gal!
Then there’s us, Roadrunner Florist & Basket Express. When is the last time you called us (or your local florist) to send flowers to someone you love?
OK, I’ll admit it. I’m going to be using more and more businesses on these threads in the future. Don’t be surprised if there’s a present in there for you, too!
