TOP POSTS FOR 2016: BOOKS AND STICKERS
Every year I get to the end of December and can hardly believe another year has just flown by. How does it happen? It has been a big year for me and the blog. I love having this blog as my creative outlet and I love sharing it with all of you. One of the biggest things I did this year was to begin growing my email list and open up the Adalinc to Life Members only page.
I am celebrating my 1 year anniversary with my email list by having a special giveaway only for email subscribers. My way of saying thank you for joining me, sticking with me as I grow and learn, and being a part of my growing community. As it grows, I will assess and change as needed. In looking back over the year I have rounded up my most popular posts just based on page views. Books and stickers. Enjoy in case you missed any and see you all in the new year. (more…)

PIN YOUR WAY TO MORE TRAFFIC THIS HOLIDAY SEASON
The busiest season for Pinterest is upon us. Chances are if you are a blogger you are blogging about topics such as Halloween, Thanksgiving, Fall, Black Friday, Christmas, New Years, and many more. If you don’t know by now that with the right pin can drive large amounts of traffic to you site, well you are missing out on a lot of traffic. It can be a pin from last year or years ago.
I have noticed it with my Halloween Planner Stickers post. I created this post last year and the pinned it last year. For most of the year it didn’t do very much at all but over the summer I started to notice traffic trickling in and now it consistently brings in the most traffic everyday. Traffic I had never seen before or saw last year. Read on to find out how you too can pin your way to more traffic this holiday season. (more…)

HOW TO CREATE YOUR OWN GLITTER TEXT PRINTABLE USING PICMONKEY
For today’s post I thought I would give you a glimpse into how I have been learning how to create your own glitter text printable using PicMonkey. I do not come from a graphic design background and so there may be way better ways, more efficient ways, easier ways to create printables. This is just how I have come to learn to create and my printables are by no means work of art or perfect by any means. I am more about the process of learning. I enjoy challenging myself to learn new things. I find that when I do that my creativity is enhanced in other areas of my life. When I’m stuck on my writing I go play with something new. Shake up my brain a bit if you will.
