Last Chance {Genius Bloggers Toolkit 2017}

Hi Guys!

Just wanted to let you know there is only a few more hours left to get The Genius Bloggers Toolkit!

Remember it's 91 resources, like eBooks, eCourses, templates, and workbooks.  And these resources includes over $5,800 of blogging tips, strategies, tutorials, and amazingly practical information and ideas.

But that's not everything.

You can also get free bonus offers worth $1,193.

Best part of all, they are selling it for a crazy 98% off of regular price!

I ordered mine the other day and i'm blown away by all the awesome resources they have put into this bundle.

I think so far my favorite resource is the eBook Creative Sparks For Your Business - 31 Business Ideas for Bloggers. Not only is it beautifully designed, it has some great ideas, which i can't wait to try out.

But like i said, there are only a few more hours left, so don't wait to buy your bundle...

Heart of Dakota {Curriculum Review}

Hi Guys!

Back in August i did a review on MFW curriculum, which i'm using with my 2 oldest boys this year.

I thought now would be a good time to do a review on the curriculum i'm using with my daughter.

This year i decided to go with Heart of Dakota's - Little Heart's for His Glory curriculum.

I bought the "Economy Package (1st Grade level)" and i added on their science program "Our Father's World - 1st Grade". I believe i ended up paying about $120.

Things that weren't included, but i could have bought as an extra on their website, were... Math, Handwriting, Phonics, and Bible.

Why didn't i choose to order those extras?

 Well for Math, Heart of Dakota is linked up with Singapore Math, and if you've been reading my blog for any length of time now, you know how much i love Math-U-See.

For phonics, i already had All About Reading on hand. I bought it when i first started homeschooling and never really used it, but this year i decided to give it a go.

And for handwriting and a Bible, i already had a handwriting book for her and we already have several children's Bibles.

Here is everything that came in my box...

  • Little Hearts For His Glory (Teacher's guide)
  • History Stories for Children
  • History for Little Pilgrims
  • Our Father's World
  • Going on Eagerly
  • Just Thinking and Choosing
  • 8 Children's Thrift Classics books 

We are 11 weeks into using this curriculum and so far i have to say, i love it.

I feel like the lessons are short, fun, and engaging. 

My daughter really loves the "Rhymes in Motion" activity we do every day. What it is, is every week she learns a new rhyme which she also acts out/does some physical movement to as well. 

For example, week 5 she was learning a ten plagues. So she would hold up one finger, two fingers, etc. all the way to ten fingers, then she would reach up high and then touch her toes. 

My favorite part of this curriculum is probably Storytime. These 8 classic books are so fun to read and i feel like they each teach a new lesson (loving yourself the way you are, don't try to be someone you are not, etc.). 

So far we have been sticking to the lesson plans, but i think from here on out, we might switch things up a bit. 

They have it broken up into units, for example unit 1-day 1, would be your first week and your first day. And so far we have been doing it like that. 

But i think i'm going to try to do 2 units a week. 

And my only reasons for that is; these lessons are short (we are able to get done in less than an hour) and i feel like this is more kindergarten work (and my daughter is in 1st grade). So i want to get done with this quickly and move on to their next level. I feel like my daughter is ready for that. 

Have you used Heart of Dakota before? Leave me a comment and let me know what your thoughts on it are.

The Genius Blogger's Toolkit 2017

You’ve got big plans and dreams for your blog.

And with good reason. I love blogging and feel so fortunate to do what I do, connecting with this community, sharing what I’m passionate about, and even earning an income.

But that doesn’t make blogging easy — in fact, sometimes it’s downright hard.

For all of your big dreams, maybe you’ve felt frustrated, confused, or stuck at times, trying to figure out how to grow your blog, get more traffic, overcome hurdles, find smart strategies, and earn more money.

Truthfully, one of the best ways I know to improve in blogging is to learn from other brilliant bloggers.

Don’t you wish you could just call up your favorite bloggers, ask them out for coffee, and soak up the wisdom as they share their most effective tips and tricks?

I’ll let you in on a little secret… it’s BYOC (bring your own coffee), but there’s a way to learn from some of the smartest bloggers on the web on ALL the topics that matter for every level of blogger, and all on your own schedule and without leaving your house.

Have you heard about the Genius Blogger’s Toolkit?

Get ready to have your mind blown.

It’s a digital package crammed full of brilliant tools to help you grow your blog, work smarter &; make more money.

(But for way less than you’d normally spend!)

The team at Ultimate Bundles has put together the best resources on ALL the topics that matter to bloggers, like mastering social media, monetization, creating and selling products, time management and productivity, growing an email list, and so much more.

This toolkit has 31 more tools than last year’s version. (And I thought it couldn’t get any better.)

You’ll get 91 resources, like eBooks, eCourses, templates, and workbooks, so you’ll find everything you need to propel your blog to the next step and far beyond.

These resources includes over $5,800 of blogging tips, strategies, tutorials and amazingly practical information and ideas. For real.

And that’s not even everything.

You can also get free bonus offers worth $1193, with 10 tools and services to help you run your blog better.

But the truly amazing part? They’re selling it for a crazy 98% off of regular price!

I know, it sounds too good to be true, but I promise it’s not.

Ultimate Bundles has been around a long time and creating these packages is really their thing (they’ve sold over 200,000 of them over the years on all sorts of topics), so you can trust this is the real deal.

Even better, they’re all about making sure you LOVE the Genius Blogger’s Toolkit. There’s a full 30-day happiness guarantee, so there’s really no risk in trying it out.

The most important detail, though, is that this toolkit is available for just 6 days.

After Monday night, October 9th, the sale ends and you’d have to buy all of these products individually.
