Duggars Head Overseas!

And they're off! This week, the entire Duggar family (including Grandma and cousin Amy) is traveling overseas for a 25-day voyage!

During our July interview (click here to listen), Michelle and Anna announced that they had applied for passports for the entire family and were in the midst of planning an international trip

Where are they going? Their destination has not yet been announced, but rest assured that their adventure will be featured in the upcoming season of "19 Kids and Counting," which is scheduled to air in the next few weeks. (We will announce details when the time gets closer.)

Where do you think the Duggars are headed?

Has anyone else visited the Bates family website/blog recently/this morning? It isn't showing up on my computer. Instead, there's a bunch of symbols over the whole page. I was wondering if there was something wrong with the website or is it just my computer?

Just tried to access the Bates' website, and it isn't working for us either. Must be a problem with their server.

Well, I just got on it and it works fine, like it usually is...maybe something was wrong with the Bates' blog this morning or so...well, I did check it this morning too and it worked fine. Hmm...that's interesting. Well, I think that they are going to either Japan or Haiti.

Hi Tehilla!

Unfortunately, we don't know Hebrew. If you do, do you think you could you give us the main idea of the article? That would be so helpful! :)

Hundreds of parents with strollers out protest marches recently the cost of living in Israel. You can buy an apartment and grow me two or three children the average salary - this main argument that underlies the middle class protest. So what would you say the U.S. Dugger, who is growing, yes, it's not a mistake, 19 children? And no, this is a family deciding to adopt children, but with such that all 19 children, common for parents Jim and Michelle.

Not only in the United States:

* Congratulations: 44 years old gave birth to 18th child
* Children in families with many children - are smarter?
* Many children "grow big" little

America as America, Hdagrim, famous families in the United States, of course found a way to make money from their special family. The family featured in a popular weekly television program, 19 ‭ "‬ children, and continue count is," which airs in dozens of countries around the world. They also appeared in numerous American television programs and international, and recently finished work on their second book, "Love doubling is," already entered the bestseller list of The New York Times ‭.

In ‭ 10 - September ‬ They fulfill a dream when they get a high-profile visit to Israel, during which they photograph their program period. Their family's delegation will include 23 people (with two grandchildren ‭ (‬ Not including lenders, they will tour throughout Israel and will visit tourist sites, especially those of Christian saints.

Wonderful blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers? I'm hoping to start my own blog soon but I'm a little lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I'm completely overwhelmed .. Any tips? Thank you!

Hi Anonymous!

Thanks for the kind words about our blog. We recommend starting with a free service. One important rule of thumb when starting a blog is to keep writing. It usually takes months (and even years) to build a readership, but don't give up! There are a lot of articles online about blogging, but the best way to learn is by doing. Once you come up with a topic, just go with it!

Hope this helps. Best wishes to you!
