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,
    Thanks for featuring my baked apples! They are so good!

    I shared my grain-free oatmeal raisin cookies and a teaser about my upcoming Kombucha challenge as well as an article about the upcoming HealThy Mouth Summit!

    Hi Wardee,
    I wanted to put your Simple Lives button on my blog, but I don’t see the code anywhere. Could you let me know where I might find it? I could create one with the image you have at the top of the page…but I have so little time!

    Love the hop :)

    Hi Wardee, I too am looking for a blog button so I can link back to your site – please could you email me the code if possible? That way I can complete my linked-up process.
    Thanks very much

    It may be just me, but for some reason I am not seeing any of the submissions for this week. I only see the three you featured from last week.

    Happy New Year, Wardeh and all! Sharing our easy, simple method for “instant” oatmeal — soaked overnight, of course, with all the ingredients added in. In the morning, just heat and eat. :) Blessings, ~Lisa
