October Blog Traffic Report + Stats and Goals

Back in August, I started keeping track of my blog traffic, stats, and goals for the next month. I may be adding income reports at a later date, but for now the only way to see my income reports is to subscribe to my email list. If you’re wondering why I would share these numbers at all, that’s a great question. There are actually two reasons. The first is that it’s a way for me to see my own progress. I also find blog traffic reports and income reports from other bloggers to be helpful and inspiring. My goal is to be helpful and inspiring to new bloggers someday.

Age appropriate chores for kids + a free printable chore chart!

age appropriate kids chores plus a free chore chart printable

This age appropriate chores list has been highly requested since I wrote “How to get kids to do chores.” This is just a guideline, and every household and every child are different! However, this is a great starting point to figuring out age appropriate chores for kids.

My daughter was able to do most chores at a much younger age than either of my sons. My youngest is no where near where either of his siblings were at his age. You know your child best, and you will be able to figure out what they’re ready for. If they’ve never done a chore in their life, don’t expect them to pick up and do everything perfectly from the start. This is why it’s so important to start early! If you haven’t, that’s okay too, just start slowly wherever you’re at.

I created a free printable of this list, along with a free chore chart that can be customized for your child! Make sure to read to the bottom of the page, so that you don’t miss it!
