Hi, friendZ! Back home and ready to conquer some reality. This week, I’m writing a handful of storieZ, accepting pitches for a few more, and eeking out the last few ounces of sweet summer vacation with the family before it’s time to get prepped for the new school year.
I’ve been getting lots of questions around Skimlinks lately, so I decided to do a feature on how it all works for this week’s Affiliate ABZs. SO, if you’re trying to wrap your mind around it, today’s a great day to subscribe to my paid content! Not only will you get my Skimlinks deep dive today, but you’ll also unlock allllll my archives with my other content (25 posts and counting!).
Cheers to a discount! »»»»
As always, I appreciate your readership and thank you for being here!
Now. Let’s get it going.
NewZ to AmuZe
Florida weather is just WILD. Here is a ridiculous waterspout that someone casually filmed earlier this week.
Three men made a remarkable itinerary (from hell if you ask me!), visiting all 50 states in 5 days
A nice New Jersey man returned a book to the library almost 80 years past its due date. Lucky for him, the library had abolished late fees the year before. Convenient timing, nice man.
Have you seen the new Aveeno Kids line? It just became available on Amazon. The Aveeno Kids Face & Body Wash is really great for sensitive skin, and it’s made with natural oat extract. They have a few other products in the line as well, including Curly Hair Shampoo and Curly Hair Conditioner.
If you’re gluten-free (or maybe just trying to be) and hate chalky GF baked goods, I have a cure for your sweet tooth! Blue Diamond Almond Flour makes THE BEST baked goodies. So far I’ve tried the Brownie Mix and Cookie Mix, and trust me, you’ll never miss the gluten. It’s keto-friendly, gluten-free, Kosher, vegan, paleo, and Non-GMO project verified, which covers almost all the diet hyphens!
Cymbiotika: These supplements use all plant-based ingredients and focus on absorption technology so your body can actually use them properly. I’ve just started a few of them for our family and I’m crossing my fingers!
All the Azks!
