Great list of Chrome extensions for bloggers!
 
7 FREE CHROME EXTENSIONS FOR BLOGGERS 

http://heathergreutman.com/7-free-chrome-extensions-bloggers/ 

I am a die-hard Apple girl, and I was avoiding Chrome like the plague! Then I had to get Chrome to use an extension for a Pinterest scheduler program that I became a part of and found the wonderful world of Chrome Extensions... 

Let's just say I have been using Chrome ever since.... on my Macbook Pro! ;-) 

My favorite by far is the Hootsuite Hootlet extension, it is #2 on my list! 

What are your favorite Chrome extensions for blogging??

Nearly 30% of users are still using Windows XP.  XP has just over a month until it looses support from Microsoft.  What will this mean for you?
#genealogy #windowsxp #linux  
Many people and companies still use Windows XP, despite it’s age.  In many ways I can understand this.  After all Windows XP is a pretty light weight system when compared to newer versions of Windows.  It wasn’t that long ago...

Homeschooling mom of 5 who loves homesteading, gardening, cooking, knitting and genealogy nut.
Introduction
I'm a homeschooling mom of 5 children.  I love the homesteading lifestyle and make video tutorials and vlogs at Homestead Acres on YouTube.  I also post often on my blog Homestead Acres and Google+ page for Homestead Acres.  Topics include homeschooling and homesteading life, canning, gardening, crochet, knitting and reviews of products I find helpful.  I love learning and sharing with others!

I also love genealogy and have been researching my family history for 20ish years.  I blog about this at Footsteps of the Past.

The main surnames I'm researching are:

  • Mills
  • Stinson
  • Grummett
  • Colgan
  • Badgerow
  • Ferrier
  • Kuhn
  • Churchyard
  • Laws & Lawes
  • Anderson & Andersson
  • Mört
  • Schuler

  • Spitz
  • Puddington
  • Robichaud
  • Gallant
  • Gardiner
  • Hazard
  • Smith (Irish from County Tyrone)
  • Robinson
  • Gibson
  • Kane

Main areas of research are Ontario, New Brunswick and PEI in Canada.  
Massachusetts, Michigan  New York, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island in the USA.
Scotland, Ireland, Baden Germany and Sweden.
