The Friday 56 (With Instagram 56)

Welcome to Week 231!

With wedding plans in full force, I have done very little reading.
I'm still reading the same book from last week, Made With Love.
I feel terrible I haven't read more.









Rules:

*Grab a book, any book.

*Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader

(If you have to improvise, that's ok.)
 *Find any sentence, (or few, just don't spoil it)
*Post it.
*Add your (url) post below in Linky. Add the post url, not your blog url. 
*It's that simple.


Or join The Friday 56 on Instagram!
Rules:
* Grab a book and find a creative way to showcase your 56.
It can be a photo of the book and the 56 in comments, or whatever you come up with.
Make sure to use the hashtag #Friday56
*Add your Instagram url to the Linky.

Noah had stepped in and tried to be a good influence on his nephew. The thing was, it was hard trying to save someone who didn't want to be saved.

  3. Congrats on your wedding! I can imagine you're too busy preparing to have much time for reading.

    That quote has so much truth to it but some people take a long time to learn it.

  11. Great pick Freda I wanted to say Congrats on your Wedding and sadly goodbye I love participating in your meme but I would no longer be participating in it sorry it was fun at the beginning for me but please forgive me for not going into to much details about leaving because I really don't like complaining but it has been fun and you are an amazing person and I wish you the best in everything you do. Can you please delete my link from the Linky because I try to do it but I can't find a delete button because I already deleted my post on my page. Take care and have a wonderful weekend my friend.

  12. Yes, it is hard to help someone who doesn't want to be saved.

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.
