  14. Congrats on your 3rd Blogiversary!!
    I would get a book that's been on my wishlist.

  15. First, I would have to buy a used book from Amazon Marketplace because I prefer hard cover books, and those cost more than $10. It will have to cost a penny because s&h is $4, and I won't pay more than that for a used book. I have lots of books in my wishlist, so one of them should cost a penny.

    Do you want to know which book? Since it can cost only a penny, I would guess that it will have to be an older book, but it won't have to be too old, just not recent. Maybe Jo Nesbo'S THE SNOWMAN or Ron Rash's ONE FOOT IN EDEN or OOGY: THE DOG ONLY A FAMILY COULD LOVE by Levin.

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.


Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.



Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.



The user interface is a simple design that you can easily get through with no hassle, even if you are not computer savvy a…

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. Here is why having good communication and PR skills, and even studying to improve them using something like an online master of communication management degree from the University of Southern California, is so vital for blog owners. 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. You may work hard on writing good posts or hiring people who can create useful and interesting stuff…

#Recipe Minestrone Soup
