cash for sponsored blog postsThe blogging community is a very supportive one. Since I’ve found so much good information from other bloggers, whenever I find information that I find helpful, I try to share it too.

Top 8 Links: Halloween

 Jack O Lantern for Halloween

Halloween was one of my favorite holidays growing up. We lived in a large apartment complex with many buildings and would trick-or-treat in each building on every floor.

It was such a blast and we got so much candy! A friend’s mother would decorate their whole apartment, have scary music playing and she would dress up like a witch. So many years later and I still have such fond memories.

I’ll be picking up some candy today and hopefully we’ll get a few trick-or-treaters. We usually don’t get many, but I still love the day.

Happy Halloween to you and enjoy the links!
