My #ALSIceBucketChallenge

I saw the challenge going around and to be honest I didn't really want to get nominated. Yes, it raises awareness and possibly cash for a great cause, (Lou Gehrig's Disease), but did I really want to dump a bucket of ice water on my head? Not really.

Then the moment came.
My sister, gotta love her, nominated me.
I've never been one to turn down a challenge, so off I went immediately to get the bucket of ice cold water. I didn't use ice cubes, that would probably hurt, but really cold water had the same effect without the lumps afterward. I threw on my bathing suit, had to be prepared for the big splash, and off I went to it.
The hubby took the video. Pardon my face without makeup on, but picture all that running down my face after the soaking... yeah, I wasn't going there either.

Anyway, enjoy the laugh and remember to give, even just a little, to a great cause, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis or ALS. Thank you.

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…
