Hi all! I wanted to take a few minutes to give you an update on a few new things on Merry About Town.
First, don’t forget to check out the new recipes being posted from our awesome recipe contributor, Racquel! I will still be posting recipes as well but she is going to make sure that the recipe section doesn’t die while I am on the road. One of my favourites so far is…
Looks delicious, right? Make sure to check out her recipes and they will be listed in our hand dandy recipe index along with your favourites.
The next change is that BestBirtdays.ca has become part of MerryAboutTown. You can see all the content by going to the Best Birthdays tab on the menu bar. (You can click on the picture above to see one of our favourite posts!) Some of the older posts still need a bit of formatting work but they should all be there. If you have any issues, let me know and I’ll try to straighten it out for you. If you love JUST birthday content, make sure to follow the Best Birthdays FB page.
Another thing that you may notice is that I have added affiliate links to Amazon to most of my posts. This has a two fold use. One, it allows me to add products to my pages that you, the reader, might need to make my recipes. Two, it allows me to make pennies off of each thing you buy when you go to Amazon (or other stores one day but today…Amazon) through my links. Your price does not change when you buy through an affiliate link. So it is a bit of a win/win in my books.
I hope you think so too. Running a blog isn’t free and I’m trying to find ways to keep the lights on while annoying you as little as possible. I will always let you know when there are affiliate or sponsored links within a post. Also know, though, that any opinions I share are always my own. If I hate it…I will tell you. (Note that some of the old Best Birthdays posts may have affiliate info in them from the previous website that may or may not be disclosed. I am slowly working through them all to get it cleaned up and consistent).
Also make sure you are following along on the Merry About Town FB page. I post content from here but I also post fun stuff from other blogs. I have also been doing more live video where I talk about our upcoming RV trip and other things that I think you will be interested in. I would love to see you there and hear what you think!
Thanks for having a read and I hope that you still enjoy hanging out with us at MerryAboutTown. As always, if you have any feedback or suggestions leave them in the comments or reach out to me through the “Contact” page!
