    1. Now this post is DYNAMIC! You go girl. You did that. I LOVE that you write about your health challenge. I am a 2x stroke survivor & 2x cancer survivor so I have much respect for you sharing this. I just may start sharing this on my blog. 🙂 Yes, make sure you capitalize each word in your title always. Please email {Kimberly@KeystrokesByKimberly.com} who designed your blog. Nice look…

    I didn’t know about all caps for even the little words, so will do that from now on. I won a book this weekend which hopefully will help me figure out SEO better, so I can apply it to my blog. As for trending, how do you check for that? I have a feeling Instagram videos would be since it’s new.

  2. There aren’t any blogging events in my area (Arkansas) that I know of. But I would love to host a monthly Mompreneur Training event that would tie in well with my blog. Does that count? lol
