Hello, is this thing on?
Is anyone out there?
The week between Christmas and New Year’s is always completely dead in blogging; most bloggers don’t even bother to put out new content. But I thought I would use this opportunity to regale those of you who are new to The Glamorous Housewife with a “Best Of” series!
Aren’t you lucky!
2015 was a very tumultuous year here on The Glamorous Housewife.
It started with a bang and then somewhere around June I kind of sputtered out. I was going through a bit of a mid-life crisis and wasn’t even sure I wanted to continue writing The Glamorous Housewife. But then in November things got clearer. I figured out where I wanted to take The Glamorous Housewife and now I am so excited as to where this blog is going!
For those of you who are signed up to my weekly newsletters, I have already discussed this at length, but for those of you who just stumbled onto this page, first of all you MUST sign up for my newsletter!
Secondly I am letting you know that as of January 1st this will no longer be just a personal blog. Though I started The Glamorous Housewife as a way to document my journey from frump to fabulous, now I am switching gears and will be teaching everything I have learned in the past six years about being a glamorous housewife to you, my dear reader!
The first course of action you should take is to buy my new e-book called WillPOWER: Become an expert at being AWESOME!
