Hey there! This is just a quick note to see if I can answer several emails at once.
Q: Are you still accepting sponsors for your blog?
A: I sure am! If you are interested in having a button on the sidebar and an opportunity to bless my readers with giveaways, I am happy to make that happen. Just email intheheartofmyhome AT gmail DOT com for details.
Q: What happened to your blog updates on Facebook?
A: No clue. Well, that's not exactly true. I've checked and double checked the feed and so has Joy. Some people are seeing them, but some people are not. All the posts are set to "public" when they feed, so I'm not sure why some people aren't getting them when they had them previously. It could be that when FB switched over, all of your friend subscriptions were automatically set to "Most Updates." You might have to go in and manually change them to "All Updates."
Q: What about Google Reader?
A: This blog actually has two feeds to Google Reader. Either one will work. To add the blog to your Google Reader click the rainbow icon on the upper right margin of the front page of the blog. Or click here.
Q: Is there a way to get email notifications of your posts? I don't like to use Google Reader or Facebook.
A: There sure is! At the top of the righthand margin are drawn icons. From left to right, they are: Twitter, Google Reader /Rss, Ravelry,Facebook, email me. Directly beneath that is a box for you to subscribe directly to the blog via email. If you do that, I"ll mail you with an update, once a day, with a link to any new posts that day. Or, you can Subscribe to In the Heart of my Home by Email using this link.
And then, if you haven't had enough of me, you can find me playing over at Pinterest, too.
All of this sounds like a little bit of work for you. How about a reward? If you subscribe via Google Reader or Email or if you change you Facebook settings so that you can see my updates, leave me a note in the combox. I'll draw a random winner and reward your clicking with a new copy of Crafting with Kids. Drawing a week from today!
