I have a forum attached to my blog where people from all over the world meet to discuss simple life. There are over 8000 forum members now so we have an enormous amount of good information about growing food, cooking from scratch, family, simple living, routines, budgeting, baking and much more. Please click on the image above to go there. Newcomers will have to register. It's free, friendly and we're waiting for you.

A special thank you

I want to say a special thank you to Leigh at Blog Chicks who helped me set up the new forum last week. She basically did the whole installation and advised me what to do along the way. It was a complicated process and without her help I would either have had to pay someone to do it or struggled with it for a long time.

I have never met Leigh. I came across her site when I was added to the top Australian women bloggers list, which she compiles. Then I found Blog Chicks, her forum for chicks who blog, like me. :- ) The forum is friendly and you can ask questions about blogging or troubleshoot there if you're having a problem with your blog. The forum is there to support and encourage blogging.

So this woman, whom I had never met, offered to help me after I slipped in a question about forums into a forum about blogging. I didn't know then that the support I would get from Leigh would be so gracious and generous, but true to the nature of her site, she encouraged and supported. I like that, a woman who not only talks the talk but also walks the walk.

If you have a blog, click here, drop by and register, you never know when you too will need help. Thanks Leigh.


  1. Nice glasses Rhonda Jean! :D I can just see that picture on the sleeve of your book WHEN it comes out.... :D

  2. Hi! Just wanted to say that I've stumbled across your blog via google, as I was looking for info (and pics for my excited kids!) about keeping chooks!

    I'm now a regular reader, and am interested in many of your other topics too! (Huge knitter here, for one thing! lol)

    We actually are moving out to the country soon, and were actually planning on becoming more self sufficient and slowing things down, so this has been serindipitous for me!

    I will join your forum soon also!

  3. You give and give, and here you get some right back!

    That's how it should be.

    Thanks Rhonda for your blog, the part about making your own choices, a few days ago, was very supporting for me

    I signed in on the forum, am not writing yet.... because I have a tendency to get lost in forums... spend all my time there instead of in reality

    However I read your blog and learn from you (top Australian woman blogger, or just a blogger, you're fantastic by what you do)

  4. A big thank you to Leigh and of course, Rhonda for getting our new forum set up and ready. You both have made it something very special that I feel very honored to be a part of.

    Best Wishes and I love your new glasses!!


  5. Hi Rhonda ....when I read your article the first thing two things that came to my mind are "what goes around, comes around" and "karma".

    Enjoy being on the receiving side of things for a change, you deserve it.

  6. I second all of the comments of karmic 'what goes around, comes around'!

    You deserve it Rhonda Jean


  7. Hi Rhonda~
    Will you still post here?
    I like the homey feel of your blog~
    I don't want to go to the new forum!
    I love your new picture!

  8. fruitful harvest, I'll still be here at my blog. There is no need to go to the forum if you don't want to. It's a place for people with common interest to connect and learn from each other, but it's not everyone's cup of tea.
