Share Your Simple Lives Thursday Post

Bloggers, make a “Simple Lives Thursday” post on your own blog, then come back here to add your post to the linky box below the featured posts. If you don’t have a picture, feel free to download the Simple Lives Thursday banner (at top of post) and upload it using the script’s prompts (it is easy). Your post will appear on all host blogs!

Non-bloggers, feel free to add a comment here with any ideas or thoughts about simple living.

These are three simple guidelines for participation:

1. If linking real, traditional and simple recipes, please make sure all ingredients used are whole — such as whole grains, vegetables, legumes, meats, even sugar. In order to keep the integrity of “nourishing” food, we will delete any recipes that utilize processed, boxed foods. We are definitely not going to be ingredient policemen! But, please note that this is a hop hosted by advocates of the real, local and sustainable food movements.

2. Please link your posts back to one of the hosting blogs. This is a common blog hop courtesy. This link helps build the Simple Lives Thursday community by sending your readers to all of the other participants’ posts. We all end up sharing and learning from each other.

3. No giveaway or otherwise primarily advertising oriented posts. Keep your topics to fit our simple living theme of “consume less, produce more.” We will delete posts that don’t fit.

What will you share this week? We all look forward to your submissions!

    Hi Wardee, I posted my Fermented Cucumber Kraut recipe and I may have broken a rule. I posted an article about a non – toxic shampoo that I found. It has a link to an Amazon way to purchase it, but I also told people that it is cheaper at Whole Foods. I wrote the article to let people know what I have been doing that is different from traditional shampooing. I tried the no poo way and it has just given me a waxy crown. This seemed to be a compromise. Any-who wasn’t sure if that was a problem with the Amazon link as I post links in my recipes too.

    This blog hop is really an online encyclopedia on how to live a frugal, homemade, healthy, DIY simple life! I’m learning so much from all the participants. Thank you, Wardee (hugs). I’ve shared posts about my recent garlic harvest (#38–no more buying garlic from China!) and one of my older posts on why we should add multi-purpose salt to our food storage (#44).
