Many of you in the blogosphere probably know about Works for Me Wednesday, the weekly blog carnival hosted by Kristen Welch at We are THAT Family. I’ve participated in it sporadically for several years, and I’ve learned lots of great tips by reading what other bloggers have shared.
I was contacted a few months ago by Kristen, telling me that she was putting together an e-book of the Best of Works for Me Wednesday. She asked if it was ok to include one of my submissions, and of course, I was totally fine with that! I love that this is the tip she chose, because it’s a post that’s important to me: Helping a Grieving Family.
The e-book, entitled That Works for Me! Tried and True Tips from Works for Me Wednesday, was just released this week. The PDF download has over 800 tips, all organized by category (baby, craft, gifts, etc) and all with active links to the original post with that tip. Here’s how Kristen and her co-author, Jennifer DeGroot, describe the e-book:
That Works For Me! is not your typical e-book. It’s an interactive, organized guide to help you optimize many areas in your life. In the spirit of the Works For Me Wednesday community, we want to support the hundreds of contributing blogs by summarizing some of the best tips, while also encouraging interaction. To get the most out of this big tip book, it’s best to use wifi or have Internet access. The summaries will give you the basic gist of the tips, but to get the full information, we highly encourage you to click on the submitting blog, thus engaging in the awesome WFM Wednesday community.
Isn’t that cool? So many amazing ideas right at your fingertips! And it’s only $8! But here’s what I love the most about that $8: a portion of every sale will benefit Mercy House, a maternity house in Kenya (that Kristen and her family started) that helps rescue young, pregnant girls from prostitution, and gives them and their babies a place to stay and learn to make a living and learn about Jesus. Really, really amazing stuff…go read about them.
So, a couple of things:
1. If you’d like to order the e-book, you can save $1 off the purchase price by entering the code SAVE1 at checkout…800 tips for $7!
