Thrifty Thursday {Week 29}

Thrifty Thursday Linky Party at LivingWellSpendingLess.com!

Happy happy Thrifty Thursday!  I have to start out with a HUGE thank you to ALL of you!  As most of you know, yesterday I launched my brand new eBook, How to Blog for Profit (Without Selling Your Soul).  After putting so much time and effort into writing it, I was SO incredibly terrified to share it with the world.  Yesterday morning I seriously was a nervous wreck!

And then something incredible happened!

People–you –were interested and you bought it and started talking about it and sharing it with your friends and by the end of the day, my little book had made it to the Amazon Top 100 Bestsellers List.  Then this morning I woke up to find it was #16.  SIXTEEN!  You guys!

I can’t even tell you how grateful and overwhelmed and completely humbled I am by the response and by all your support.  You are amazing.  And awesome.  So thank you.  Truly, thank you.

How to Blog for Profit (Without Selling Your Soul)  If you have ever thought about blogging, you MUST read this book!  Everything you need to know about creating awesome content and images, growing traffic, and monetizing your blog.

And by the way, as of 8:45 this morning it is still showing up as $0.99 even though the price is supposed to be going back up to $4.99 today.  If you haven’t grabbed it yet, but want to, be sure to do it quickly!

    Thank you for hosting again Ruth! I just bought your ebook yesterday and am about a third of the way though. I’m loving it so far! Busy making lists, schedules, and more, and can’t wait to finish it. Wonderful job, and congratulations on being #16! I’m sure it will only go up from there!

    Congratulations on your new book doing so well at Amazon! That is so exciting! I purchased the book and read through the whole thing right away. It’s full of practical, useful information. I’m sure I will be referring back to it from time to time. I’ve already started putting some of your advise into practice and I’m seeing results. Thanks for sharing your experience and advice in this informative book!

    Thank you so much for sharing your experiences with us through your book. I have been working my way through it since I purchased it. I am excited to finally see how to put a content calendar into action and cannot wait to actually have my posts laid out weeks and months in advance. Thank you. I know your e-book will help me take Two Little Cavaliers to the next level.

    It’s so exciting to be featured (I’m link #5 – the one about meal planning on a budget)!

    I just want to say that I bought Ruth’s book yesterday and read it “cover to cover” in one night. She provides a goldmine of information and provides real, actionable steps for monetizing your blog. I HIGHLY recommend purchasing it, especially if you’re still able to get it at $0.99. It is worth 20 times the price.

My life has been a bit busy to join your link-ups on Thursdays recently (and will be through October with the upcoming 31 Days series) but I love seeing what you share…and will link up again! :-)

    The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple
    ipad and tested to see if it can survive a forty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.
    My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83
    views. I know this is completely off topic but I had to share
    it with someone!
