C Is For Cake

Pull up a chair, come on in, relax and take a load off. Here is what my post is all about today.

Last week, we celebrated my son's 16th birthday. We ate cake, he opened gifts and we had a great family time.

The hubby made espresso and I made regular coffee, and we sat with both sides of our family to enjoy the time together.
Notice Christ and his disciples watching over us....

Then it was time to cut the cake! Quick, give the birthday boy the honor.

Just for a reminder of the beauty that was yesterday, here is a shot of my Chrysanthemum.

Why Upping Your PR Skills Can Help You as a Blogger

Some of them are obvious, like coming up with quality content and marketing yourself well on social media, and yet they can be forgotten by a lot of bloggers. You may have great content but if you don't have good ways of boosting your blog's image, or dealing with the people who engage with you, then you'll be talking into a void.
