Where Dani writes about… just about everything!
So, I’ve actually taken to searching on Google for other blog advertising websites that I’ve missed. Although I thought that I had signed up for the majority of them, I’ve since found that there are some newer ones out there that would otherwise have missed my radar were it not for my taking initiative as I have! One of them, as I found out, is LinkFromBlog.Com. I’m in the process of registering for their website now. Based on what I’ve read from some of the other bloggers who have used their services, I’m reading nothing but good things about them. When it comes to finding blog monetizing websites, I like to go with the ones whose praises are sung highly by people — and it would seem that this one fits the bill!
Well, I’m getting back into the habit of dropping EntreCards for both of my blogs when I have some free time. Seeing as how I’m on Christmas break and waiting for the next semester of school to start, I’ve had some time on my hands — and given all of the grinding that I had to do for my Anatomy class, memorizing every bone in the body and the names and actions of most of the important muscles, this whole concept of “spare time” has been foreign to me for almost a year now! Right after I took and passed Microbiology, I threw myself right into Anatomy and Chemistry. After I’ve had this child, I’m going to be throwing myself into either Biology or Physiology and probably college algebra to boot — it all depends on what I can fit into my schedule, and when those classes are going to be open.
Yes, I will admit that I get into lulls where I don’t drop EntreCards as often as I could — but I will be trying to change that now that next semester is expected to be easier in terms of coursework. Please don’t let me eat my words, whatever higher power is up there. I thought that Microbiology was going to be easy enough because I love Biology, but the professor that I happened to have for it really put us through the wringer. I thought that Anatomy would be tolerable, at the very least, because it dealt with the human body — but I found out last semester that I may be better at classes laden with physiology, or how it works and what it does rather than all of the names for what it is…
For awhile, I had been giving some consideration to finding a penpal website. Although I’ve spoken with plenty of people on the Internet that live in different countries than I do, I’ve never really had a true penpal in the strictest sense of the word. I have a couple of global friends that live in Canada, and plenty of my friends live in England or the United Kingdom… as a matter of fact, one of my good friends lives in Australia! However, the chance never quite rose for me to have an actual penpal that I corresponded with via pencil and paper. I would have liked to have had that opportunity as a child, but the chance never came up. In wanting my children to have some of the things that I didn’t, I would like them to have penpals.
When both of my children are old enough to read and write, I might begin looking some more into some of the penpal websites that are out there and see if I can help my children find worldwide friendship. I think it would be nice for them to be able to correspond with someone that doesn’t live in their country, because it would really teach them about other countries and cultures.
