Hi Gina! I can’t seem to find any other link or way to send a message on your blog. Maybe you’ll find my comment here! I am part of a large FB decorating group and someone posted a manufactured home they are working to update. I commented that they should check your blog for inspiration and I attached the link. Unfortunately, when I went myself to your blog, I had to go back and delete my comment and link on FB. I haven’t visited in awhile and, while very professional, your blog was nothing like I remember it. I could not even find a link to see pictures of your darling home or links for a house tour of your home. (using search for “Manufactured Home” on your blog only brought up your beadboard project and this particular person was needing kitchen inspiration. Kitchen search brought up a lot of random people’s kitchens) All the cuteness that I found original and inspiring to those who are working to remake their own manufactured home was …. missing? Hidden? It does appear very professional —kind of like a big company’s website, though! I just wanted to let you know that I miss and think there is a great need for blogs that show DIY-manufactured-homes and I think it would be GREAT if you had an easy way to reference this on your blog again! You link so many other tours and topics, I don’t think it would be apparent to new traffic coming over now who you are are what your home started as/is. (Adorable and creative, BTW!!!) Thanks for considering and listening. ~Amber

I appreciate your feedback. My blog is the same as it always was and will be….for my readers, my community. I have many, many posts on how we have made a mobile home , our home and all of the many updates and renovations we have made. Here is a link to several of the related posts readily available from the search bar on my blog, https://www.theshabbycreekcottage.com/?s=mobile+home
I hope this helps 🙂
I’m a newbie blogger and trying to figure it all out. I love your round up style posts. Do you have to get permission from each blogger for the link and photo?
What is your policy for me posting a link to you and one of your photos on my blog?
Thanks in advance for your help. Love all of your inspiring posts!
Gina Luker says
Yes, you do need to get permission for each post shared and you are welcome to use a photo of mine with a link back 🙂 Good luck!
Thank you Gina. I bought one of your blogging resources and really found it helpful. Working my way through EBA right now!
How does one unsubscribe? The link(s) at the bottom of the emails don’t work.

Hi Michelle, I took care of it for you:)
Hi Gina – Saw your response to Tanya. I wanted to confirm you were alright with being featured in roundup style posts? Asking for permission to use images with a linkback to your website on the full tutorial.
Gina Luker says
Thanks Jessica, that would be great!
