No-Go BlogHer Blog Hop


I got the memo this week that there’s a little blog conference going on this weekend called Blogher. lol.  For me, going to this conference (or any other conference) this year is just a monetary impossibility!  I was talking to my husband about it, and he said he’d make it his goal to get the money for me to go to a future conference because he knows how much I love blogging. (He’s such a sweety!) 
But even then, I don’t know for sure that I would go because I’m ulta-shy!  Ordinarily I’m shy even just being around one or two people I don’t very well (or at all), and going to a conference would definitely put me on edge! I know a lot of people are anxious or intimidated by conferences, but I’d probably have a panic attack! Seriously!  But who knows, I may get up my courage and attend one—one day. I know it would be a great experience if I would just relax!
Till then, I decided to participate in the No-Go BlogHer Blog Hop over at To Be Thode and Musings of a Marfan Mom.  Not only is it free, but it’s nothing to stress over!  And they’re giving away prizes too! 
If you’re visiting from the bloghop, welcome to my blog!  Please take a moment to sign up for my latest giveaways! (Links can be found at the top!) And if you like what you see here at Simply Sweet Home, I’d love for you to be my newest follower!
For this bloghop, we are to answer the following questions: 
1.When did you start blogging?  I started blogging in October of 2007.
2.Why did you start blogging?  I’ve always loved writing, and I thought blogging was such a great creative outlet, and a fantastic way to share ideas and find community.  When I started blogging, I was a newlywed.  I was living 6 hours away from my hometown  and had nobody to talk to (except my husband).  But I loved being a new wife, and I loved everything that went along with that (cooking, grocery shopping, decorating the house, etc.)  So I decided to start Simply Sweet Home. 
3.What is one thing you are going to do this week that is WAY cooler than going to BlogHer?  I’ll be spending this weekend with my husband. (I kinda like that guy just a little bit!) Actually he’s going out of town next week, so I’m really glad that I get to spend this time with him before his trip.  We also have a cookout with our Sunday school class tomorrow.  And of course, I get to spend time with my baby cats!
4. Share a post that you think says a lot about you or is your favorite. Here’s a few!

Thanks for stopping by!
