My biggest struggle with blogging currently is learning about different social media’s and how they really work to bring traffic to the blog.
Are you married? How long? Tell us a bit about your spouse.
I have shared life with my best friend for the last 55 years, he truly is Gods special gift to me. He is semi retired and enjoys keeping our gardens in tip top shape. We enjoy life and laughing together trying to make everyday very special.

We have seven children, 3 boys and 4 girls. We have 12 Grandchildren and 4 Great Grandchildren. We have been so blessed with a fantastic family!
Do you have pets? Tell us your favorite pet story!
Max is our little rescue dog who came to live in his forever home with us about 3 years ago. He is the light of our life and such an adorable and loveable little half Poodle and half Bichon. I have a special page for Max on the blog.
What would you tell your 17 year old self if you could?

How long have you been blogging?
I have been blogging for 5 years.
How did you find Learn to Blog?
I came to Learn to Blog through Crystal and Kelli who have brought wonderful posts to my Full Plate Thursday’s for a number of years.
What is your favorite post, challenge, series, or video from Learn to Blog Hangouts?
It would be very hard for me to identify my favorite, most of the techniques that I have learned have been from the hangouts and the Learn To Blog VIP Form.
What is one blogging tip that changed your life? Where did you learn it?
The one blogging tip that changed my life and the life of my blog, when I went to a dot com. I learned that I could make that transition from a Learn to Blog Hangout.
Miz Helen’s Favorite Blog Posts:
Miz Helen is passionate about sharing family friendly recipes and meal plans. Her blog features over 200 recipes. Here’s a sample of Miz Helen’s favorites:
Old Fashioned Mac and Pea Salad. I remember eating this salad at my Mothers and at my Aunts house when I was growing up and it is one of my favorite spring salads. This is a great salad for picnic’s, covered dish dinners, and family get together’s or maybe just a special evening to remember a great recipe from your childhood.
Chicken Spaghetti is one of our families favorites and is a special request from many of our friends.
The Picnic Cake. If our family is having a picnic or a covered dish The Picnic Cake is always there, it is a great cake recipe to have.
