U Is For Up

I have one of those pop-up umbrellas. You know the ones the the handle extends and then they POP open.
I hate it.
A light breeze blows it inside out.
Good thing I don't mind getting wet, and good thing my post isn't about umbrellas.
I've decided there are 3 types of people in the world.
The one who look down when they walk. The ones who look straight ahead when they walk, and the ones who have a tendency to look up and around when walking.
I took this with my Samsung phone at Noon est today.
My photo tells you #1, which person I am, and #2 It was a beautiful day in the neighborhood.
I am definitely the dreamer. The one with her head in the clouds. I spend enough time looking up that I've developed Olyve Oyl syndrome and don't look very stable on my own two feet sometimes. I hear a plane, and actually have to hold hubby's arm while walking so I don't make it into traffic.
I just can't help myself.
I'm enamored by the great beyond and all the possibilities it holds.

So tell me, which of the 3 types are you?

  1. I'm prone to all 3 types of walking, depending on my mood, the time of day, the reason for the walk etc.
    Walking to and from work I tend to look straight ahead - focussing on the things I have to get done.
    If I'm walking with my phone/camera looking for Instagram inspiration I tend look down for interesting details or up for panoramic vistas!
    If I'm in a bad mood. I tend to watch my feet. But I also watch my feet on rainy days :-)

  5. I must be the kind who looks all around. It gets me in trouble many a time, tripping and falling. But who wants to look at the ground all the time! {:-D

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.
