I got sick of seeing those first thing in the morning pictures of myself at the top of my blog so here I am posting a bit of nothingness to fill the void. Truthiness is good for a day, not for a week. :oP It’s not that I don’t have something of substance to write about. I do – too much, in fact! I was just looking at the posts I’ve started, links I’ve bookmarked, and topics I want to write about and I’m at more than 50! My problem is that I don’t have enough time to write about everything (or anything on someRead More →

Hello. :) I’m Amy, also known around the internets as amygeekgrl. Welcome to my groovy green blog party, part of the Ultimate Blog Party hosted by 5 Minutes for Mom! I’m so glad you stopped by. :) Come in, have a seat and let me offer you something to eat. Can I tempt you with some homemade granola or perhaps an oat-nut scone topped with strawberry jam or maybe you’re in the mood for a Grilled Panini with Provolone and Basil or a brownie baked with love? I have a fair bit to choose from here, as I enjoy cooking and baking a great deal.Read More →

Last week, I wrote a list of things you can do to increase your blog traffic. And now here’s another idea that’s sure to be a lot of fun! If you haven’t yet heard of The Ultimate Blog Party sponsored by 5 Minutes for Mom, you may be living under a rock. ;) Just kidding. But seriously I’m finally getting on board before time runs out, am planning to get my groove on and be a part of the party. I hope you will join in the fun too! It looks like a great way to find some new blogs and attract new readers toRead More →

I was inspired to write about how to increase your blog traffic after reading a friend’s recent post about navigating social media sites. Since I’m not that schooled in social media sites yet, but I do have experience with growing my traffic through other avenues over the years, I wanted to pass on what has worked for me. Without further ado, here are the Crunchy Domestic Goddess’s tips for attracting more readers to your site. (Edited to add that from the time I initially posted this, I’ve since thought of three more things and added tips 6-8.) Comment, comment, comment – Seriously. To attract newRead More →

It’s Haiku Friday. A first for me on my blog. Thought it looked like fun. And now for the real Haiku… Girl Scout Cookies Oh, Girl Scout Cookies. Peanut butter, chocolate. My favorite treat. Morning, noon and night. I could eat you ’round the clock. And sometimes I do. Oops. Running low now. I must make the cookies last. Rationing them out. But wait! There are more! Sweet treasure in the freezer. Sigh. What a relief. ===================================== I’m so flattered to have been chosen as February’s Mama Blogger of the Month over at Mile High Mamas. Feel free to check out my interview over thereRead More →

Three years ago today I started this blog without any real expectations, just a need for a space to share my thoughts and passions. And that is what I have done, but not without learning a lot about people, human nature and life along the way. My blog itself has evolved a lot over the years. It started with Blogger as Musings of a Crunchy Domestic Goddess, changed to WordPress and then, after I registered my own domain, it got a groovy blog makeover and a shorter name – Crunchy Domestic Goddess. In three years, I’ve gained many readers, as well as lost some alongRead More →
