HAPPY READING!

The month of scary reading is upon us. Are you near your goal yet, done like Bev, or no where near? I'm still falling behind, and with a job soon, I'll probably fall more. I'm 11 books behind schedule. Poop. That means I might get eighty-something when I'm done at this rate. I best take more bath time!

Now onto the Linky for October. Happy reading!

  1. I used to read in the tub, before the kids took over that bathroom! I like the patio this time of year too, it's a bit cool sometimes, but the bugs have abated!

  3. P.S. I finished my one-hundredth too, September 1. Good luck in your job! I got a *lot* of reading done when I worked outside the home. At home, my sessions are at bedtime; another comfortable spot! LOL! Here's what you do in the workplace.

    Except of course occasionally socializing with staff: read on all of your breaks. If you can eat your lunch while you work, your reading can go all the way through your off-time. What we employees were allowed to do in many places is push our 15-minute breaks together, into a big lunch. Don't go to work without a book, or your contraption. ;>

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…
