Stop Distracted Driving!

This post brought to you by Insurance Hunter. All opinions are 100% mine.
Are you guilty of texting or uing your G.P.S. while driving? If you said yes, this post is for you.
You may think checking your phone or using your G.P.S. while driving is not a big deal. You're a multi-tasker, you say. But distracted driving is an issue that happens too often and should not be taken lightly. Studies show that 8 out of 10 accidents are due to distracted driving. By those stats alone, this shows this really has to stop. To know that this can all be prevented if drivers remain focused on the road and not their phones, should be enough to end it. You wouldn't want you or a loved one to become a statistic, would you?
It's time to put away those phones while driving. Keep your eyes on the road when you are behind the wheel, it could save a life, maybe even your own.
Stop Distracted Drivers
This is an instance when I am glad I no longer drive. I am sure I would be guilty of distracted driving. That is a scary thought. Being a pedestrian doesn't make me feel safe though. Not knowing this information. It enlightens me to the dangers and opens my eyes when walking in this large city. Now if I see someone driving distracted, it will be easier to contact the authorities, or at least keep my distance for safety.
I will definitely be talking proactively to everyone I know about their driving habits. Opening their eyes is the first step, but it's worth a try to make the streets we travel safer to be on.

  1. I am terrible about oh I can check this text or email as I am slowing down to a red light. Lately I've been forcing myself to keep my phone in my purse, zipped and keeping it on the passenger floorboard, so I am not able to just grab it. Makes it less likely for me to deal with my phone (too much work to grab it). I keep telling myself everyone whose been in an accident or killed because of texting thought they were being safe. Good reminder!

  2. It's one of my pet peeves when people are on their phones while driving. So dangerous and I never touch my phone or have it in my hands when I'm on the road. In my opinion, it can always wait until I've parked :)

    1. So true!! It's not like people didn't do exactly that and wait before cell phones were invented.

    2. You are completely right Brandi! Every call or text can wait until you are safely parked. If you are expecting an important call, make it a point to be in a safe place to take the call.

  3. You are so right. Our theaters are promoting safe driving and the writing on their hands is perfect. You can use it while walking or driving when someone is driving while being distractions. (If you can get their attention.) "It can wait!" on the inside of their hand. Even worse, something which happened last Saturday are folks supposedly driving, not even using any device but still they meander over lanes, or slowly pull out in front of you like they are the only ones out there! Drive people! I actually screamed, over and over, or get off the road!

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 may work hard on writing good posts or hiring people who can create useful and interesting stuff…
