    2. I haven't heard of Ensnared by Rita Stradling, but I read one of Rita Stradling's other books last year and loved it. I will need to check it out. Have a great April!

    3. VI Warshawski series is on my TBR! I have yet to read it. Steampunk is a bit of a hit or miss with me, but I'm glad you enjoyed Ensnared! I do love retellings. Hope you have a Happy April!

      1. Superpoints is one I should remove. It used to be good, you just press a button a bunch of times and get points. After so many points you can cash out for GC's. They changed things though and it sucks now.

    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.

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…
