Z Is For Zaftig

Zaftig.
Maybe not a word you are familiar with.
It means to be voluptuous or pleasantly plump.
Like every woman in my family, except me.
I don't have a problem with it, but my mother does. She has gotten so tired of being zaftig, she is getting a Gastronal Bypass Surgery.

Honestly, I will miss the hugs. She currently gives the best ones. Will they change as she gets smaller?
Can men be zaftig?????

  3. That's a new word for me too. If I were zaftig, I wouldn't want to be called it.

  4. A new word and I love your definition. No, I don't believe men can be considered voluptous, women have a monopoly on that delicious word.

    Congratulations on completing the A to Z Challenge. It was quite a ride.

Why Upping Your PR Skills Can Help You as a Blogger

When it comes to running a blog, there are a lot of things you need to think about to be a success. 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.

You Want to Be a Credible Source of InformationWhen you put content out on the web, you want it to be either entertaining or useful – ideally both.
