This post is like Evernote for WordPress everything for the month is pasted in here!

A short guide to my wanderings on the inter-webs in the month of February.  Let’s see if I manage it next month!

Highlights

Enjoying my new blogging seat at the Spirituality Itself channel at Patheos.com.  I am so excited to be a part of this and really believe that my writing is growing as a result.  They asked me, they asked me!

Here are the posts I’ve published so far

Practical spirituality for housewives – amongst the diapers and activity when having 2 girls 17 months apart – some interesting energy work gets studied and intuitions get noticed.

What is most sacred to you? A powerful spiritual question.  A question I saved and put away for later reaps huge benefits for me when my mum transitions, when I want to be in nature and continually supports me on the Spiritual Journey.

Can teens learn to practice gratitude?  My oldest teenager has an existential crisis and we both learn something as a result.  (Yes, teens can, really!).

Podcasting

microphone-1018787_640The energy got me podcasting again this month – it’s been a while – so here are two short podcasts to enjoy on the journey.  The Power of Story and A Remote Energy Experience.

Geeky stuff – a plugin, an excerpt and Google fonts on The Gossip

My favorite plugin lately is MailMunch’s sign-up form.  Even with the free version, you can create some very nice options for email sign-ups and it’s really making a difference to the size of the list.  Click here for the link to the WordPress plugin details.

Still working on the next layer of the onion to increase visitors to my Mom On A Spiritual Journey blog.  Recently with my new job at Patheos I was encouraged to fill in the Excerpt field more often.  This will show potential readers tailored post content when they are thinking of reading your post, instead of content grabbed by your theme by default.  I have had a lot more daily visitors since implementing this policy.

I use a neat theme on the Mom On A Spiritual Journey blog called Gossip by Ghostpool.  It has plenty of flexibility for what I need to do.  Recently I bit the bullet and added some new google fonts.  I am very happy with the result!

That’s it for now.  Until next time.
