You may have noticed that all my ads are gone from the sidebar. ALL of them. Anything that I was affiliated with, I took off. The FTC has decided that as a blogger, I should not be allowed to make money at one of the things that I love the most--blogging.
I have two giveaways in the works and as soon as those are done, I will not be posting anymore giveaways. Sorry guys! I love doing giveaways, but I like my blog more than giveaways and I don't want to lose it.
I will continue to post my devotionals, our homeschool journey, and my fabulous recipes, and movie and books reviews as I finish them.
To be honest, I am kind of glad that this is happening. One of my favorite movie quotes from Hope Floats is when Harry Connick Jr is talking to Sandra Bullock about his giftedness in building. She tells him, "Justin, you can build like this and you go around Smithville painting houses for a livin? You could do so much more." I love his response. It speaks much wisdom. He told her, "You find somethin' that you love and then you twist it and torture it--tryin' to find a way to make money at it. You spend a lifetime doin' that--and at the end, you can't find a trace of what you started lovin'." I think that is what I have done. I love writing, but instead of just writing and using my gift for God the way He intended, I keep trying to find ways to make money doing what I love to do. I don't want to lose sight of that--ever.
So to make a loooong story short, I am just going back to regular blogging!
How has the FTC affected your blog? I would love to hear!
