Thank you so much for stopping by!

Loving the Home Life is the food blog for women who just want to get to the recipe and not be bombarded with ads, pop-ups, and fluff.

Loving the Home Life started out as a blog about homemaking in general. But that subject is too broad and didn’t draw the audience I had hoped for.

So I’m narrowing the topic down to food. It’s still pretty general, but with a name like Loving the Home Life, that’s about as niche as I can get with a food blog without starting completely over with an all new domain, etc.

Since starting Loving the Home Life in 2018, I’ve learned how to create and edit videos. Did I mention that I knew absolutely NOTHING about creating a website when this blog was first launched? Well, I’ve learned a LOT and continue to learn. So this blog is evolving with me.

With the new Loving the Home Life, I’m blogging my way. 

I prefer to get right to a recipe on a website, so my recipes are placed right at the top of the post. If you wish to read further, the narrative is below the recipe. If its necessary to add the “Jump to the Recipe” feature on a food blog, the recipe belongs at the top of the post.

Affiliate links are gone.

Affiliates pay such a pittance it isn’t worth the time creating much less maintaining affiliate links. I’m creating my own products to be offered in my own little online shop right here.

Until that shop is up and running, I’m asking for your support through tips via PayPal. Just click the PayPal button on the Home page or in a post to send along your support (and THANK YOU for doing so!)

With affiliate links gone, you don’t have to worry about your data being sold or cookies on your website. It’s just me and I don’t sell data. So that covers the legal stuff about privacy.

Video instructions are being added to all my new and old recipes. It’s a challenge, and if you find a post without video instructions, I just haven’t gotten to it yet. 

Another change is I removed comments.

Hacking activity has increased tremendously in the last year and comments are a vulnerability. There is also expense involved in adding a comment spam filter and it takes time to manage comments. To me, the expense in both my finances and my time make comments something I prefer to not have.

If you have a question about a recipe, my email address is kay@lovingthehomelife.com. Please feel free to send an email with your questions. I’ll be happy to help.

With the new Loving the Home Life, I'm blogging my way.
