blog services from life in a house

Update beginning 9/1/2022 – Life in a House has been my passion and had my undivided attention since 2004 and I have worked very hard to build Life in a House into what it is today. With that being said; however, I will be shifting gears somewhat beginning this month. I have a full-time job now, so blogging is going to revert back to being a hobby of mine and I will be sharing more personal, family-oriented posts with my readers.

Since Life in a House is shifting from our main source of income to our backup source of income, I’ve decided to change our pricing model as well. Our new updated prices are below and go into effect beginning September 1, 2022.

We still welcome the opportunity to work with you! We will also be continuing our gift guides to share with you our favorite products that will hopefully become a favorite for your family as well. Please review ALL of the information below before submitting a request for publication or a collaboration.
