One of the things I want to create most is an environment that gives you a space to think and dream. I want to help you take your day deeper, and I don’t think a bunch of ads or affiliate posts would promote that. It totally works for other blogs; in fact, most days I wished they worked for my blog’s purpose. But they don’t – not if I want to give you space to imagine, dream, breathe, process, and ponder. Therefore I do my best to keep ads to a minimum. But since I still need a little help running this blog, I allow a couple ads. For now. And I use affiliates but only when it’s absolutely fitting.
So basically, if you love Words on Paper as much as I do, and you’d love to support the content creation (and book creation!), then there are a few things you can do!
You can use my links below to purchase something you were going to purchase anyway. It wouldn’t cost you anything extra.
You can check out my product shop (currently in Etsy) and buy a download for yourself or a friend. I’m always brainstorming new stuff for over there.
Or you can donate via the PayPal button in my footer.
These are affiliate links and if you purchase something I will receive a small percentage to keep maintaining the blog and providing the content that best serves you.
If you want to start building a platform in the online world, these tools below are my absolute favorites. I use them myself and recommend them highly.
This is my favorite site to purchase WordPress themes. As in, my only site. I’ve bought themes from there, like three times.
But first you may want to grab Studiopress’s Genesis Framework. It’s the backbone of all my themes and you only have to purchase once.
Bluehost has been my steady friend ever since I joined the self-hosted world back in 2013.
Brands I love
I teach Body Pump, so I also love anything from Les Mills (the creator of Body Pump).
Where would us moms be without Target?
Below are some of my other favorite things that I can’t get enough of. All of them I own and use on a regular basis; I won’t recommend something I wouldn’t use myself.
Crio Bru got me through my Whole 30 experience, and I still enjoy a cup from time to time. I’d drink it all day if it didn’t cost more than coffee. If you love hot chocolate, a cup of this is a much healthier option. You don’t even need sweetener, it’s that good. I’ve tried the Light Roast and the French Roast, French being my favorite.
I couldn’t find my own brand of silicone wedding rings, but Adam has this brand and loves it. We wear our silicone rings a lot; Adam doesn’t even wear his old ring anymore (which I’m totally fine with, he works with his hands so it’s safer for him), and I wear it to work out and travel. I highly recommend buying a silicone ring as a back up if you don’t like going without something on your finger.
