Welcome to 50 Things to Know Life

photoWelcome to 50 Things to Know Life!  Hi there! I’m Lisa. I live with my wonderful husband, our two beautiful girls, and our Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Charlie in Lock Haven, PA.  I am now a stay at home Mom but in the past I was an instructional designer, multimedia technician, and a software trainer.  I love using these skill on this blog.  I just completed a doctorate in Educational Leadership with an emphasis in Educational Technology.

love to travel mostly on cruises and all-inclusive resorts but I use to travel with work as a software trainer.  My favorite food is Maryland crabs, and my favorite color is blue. I enjoy camping, going to the beach, and spending time with friends and family.  I also love a special coffee shop in Lock Haven, PA called Avenue 209 which is also the building where we go to church.

Please find me on Pinterest.

I apparently started this whole blog thing in May 2010.  I have been blogging for over 5 years.  That is pretty good for blogger time.  As you know I have switched to a couple different sites to get it all sorted out.  As for now I am staying with 50 Things to Know and Charlie the Cavalier.  Some posts have stuck gold and others have been seen by just a special few.  I thought I would record some of the highs that I have seen in the past 5 years.

  • Charlie the Cavalier on Blogger: http://charlie-the-cavalier.blogspot.com will reach 2 MILLION views this month!  How excited.  Most of this excitement is due to the 50 Things to Know Before Having a Baby which I then turned into my first of over 250 50 Things to Know Books.
  • My Google Plus Account Lisa Rusczyk has over 18.5 MILLION views.  Honestly, I am really not sure how I got there but that is an impressive number to me.
  • The views on YouTube all time have hit 120,000 views on https://www.youtube.com/user/lbrennec.
  • Last year 50 Things to Know Books sold about 5,000 books in the past 2 years.  Many more were downloaded on free days.  This also means that I was about to donate $350 to teaching and learning since each book that is sold I said I would donate 10 cents per book.  Including last year we donated $500.
  • There is now 16,500 followers on my Pinterest Account LBrennec.  If you are wondering where lbrennec came from, it is my maiden name.  When I created the account a long time ago it was more of a personal thing but now it is both.
  • I got to be on HLN Project Home with my friend Sarah.  A CNN camera came to my house and everything.  This gave me a much better appreciation for reality tv stars, and what goes into television.  If you listen in the background you can even hear the train going by our house.
  • Project have also been on PA Live, a local tv show, two times, the local news paper the Lock Haven Express, The Voice a Chicago Radio Show, and on many other blogs.

Thank you for all the love and support over the past 5 years.  I have enjoyed blogging and that is why I do it.  If I can help you out in any way please let me know.  I am not sure if I am impressed or not by these numbers but it has been fun to see things happen.  Honestly, I was impressed when 1 person bought my book.  The thought that that many people have actually viewed one of my pages (even if just for a couple seconds) is pretty impressive.  So thank you all and let me know if I can help you grow your blog, self-published books, and prayers.
