Riding the Steam Trains at Perrygrove

We had a blast riding the train and crawling through tunnels!

Riding the Steam Trains at Perrygrove Railway

Spring has finally sprung and the weather is getting warmer so we're starting to plan some Field Trips so we can get out and about and explore. Our first trip was to the Perrygrove Railway, where we rode a steam train and playing in a Treehouse Village.

We had a blast and you can read all about it here:

Do all of your posts have pinnable images?

This post from +Peg Fitzpatrick should convince you to move it to the top of your to do list!
5 Ways That Pinterest Can Help Your Blog

Pinterest and blogging may seem like they are unrelated but bloggers can boost their website traffic and build their readership by using Pinterest. Think of +Pinterest as the frosting and sprinkles on your cupcake of web traffic, it seems like pretty eye candy but also adds a lot of flavor and interest! With a few smart steps each time you publish a blog post, you can bring traffic to your website from Pinterest.

Working with these easy to follow tips, you’ll start getting traffic from Pinterest right away and posts have a very long life on Pinterest. Pinterest is the #1 traffic referral to my blog in 2014 so far. These tips really work!

Create a separate, pinnable image for your blog post

The number one mistake that blogs are making today is not having a pinnable image on each blog post! Size matters! Even if you’re not a graphic designer or have Photoshop, you can make fantastic images that will help your blog posts be seen on Pinterest. +Canva recently launched some Pinterest templates that are really easy to use. Long, tall images command Pinterest taking up the most visual real estate in the Pinterest feed. Create images that are 735 pixels x 1102 pixels for maximum appeal and repins. I also use Canva's 800 x 1200 templates for Pinterest and Google+ images.

A great tip from power pinner +Melissa Taylor, update old posts without pinnable images. Create new images, add to the blog post then share them on Pinterest. You can even get fancy and add the embedded pin at the bottom of the post.

How are you using Pinterest with your blog?

Recipe of the day

Adding this to my must bake bucket list!

Do you have a hard time deciding between chocolate cake and fudge brownies? With this recipe, you don’t have to. Chocolate cake and fudgy brownie batter are combined, then topped off with a creamy ganache. This outrageous bundt cake is a chocoholic nirvana.

Perfect Fluffy Cupcake Frosting

I've been trying to make frosting that looks like this for years - hopefully this is the recipe that will help me achieve it!
Fluffy Frosting Recipe

Brace yourselves- this frosting is life changing! Well, maybe not life changing…but it could make you famous (that’s probably a lie too). It’s fluffy, it’s bouncy, it’s soft, and it’s incredibly fun to eat.
