What is this all about?

I've decided to start this new blog for very selfish reasons. I still have my personal blog where I'll post family pictures/videos/stories, but I needed another place for other random thoughts that come into my head.

Applesauce Magic will be a place where I can talk about whatever I want and not have to worry about who comes here and reads it. It will be a place for me to review books/movies/tv shows/games/etc. that I like and dislike. I will also express opinions on products I try, places I visit, new ideas about parenting that I try, parenting tips that work for me and don't work, recipes, housework, etc. I will share my opinion on everything and hope that in some way it will help those who read it- or I'll at least get suggestions that work for others on the same topic. (I'll still keep The Joy of Reading up and going, but will probably post the same book reviews on both sites).

This is also be a great place for me to list and blog about Internet giveaways and freebies. I have become a little obsessed lately trying to find good giveaways and freebies to sign up for and try out. I'll list every giveaway and freebie that I, personally, have signed up for and feel is worth my time. That way I can share all the great deals I get with anyone who cares without harassing people on my personal blog or through e-mails. I'd love any suggestions of places to find great giveaways or freebies and advice about what works and doesn't. Just to warn you- there will be A LOT of buttons, links, etc. put on the side bar because I could care less if they take up space on this blog- as long as I get them off my personal blog. Thanks and enjoy some applesauce!


  1. very cute new blog, my dear! I look forward to reading it.

  2. Very fine idea, but I shall be competing with you now on all those giveaways.
