The Friday 56 (With Instagram 56 & Book Beginnings)

Welcome to week '?'.
Currently I'm using a friend's internet on my phone to get some kind of post up.
I'll have internet back on Monday sometime so next week will be a normal post again. Bear with me. 😊

Since I'm on my phone there will be no Linky. Leave a comment with your url to your post and I'll visit a.s.a.p.
(I know I still have a couple to visit from last week. Sorry life has gotten in the way... I wish I could say I was having fun at least but nope.)

Happy weekend and happy birthday Canada!

    This week I shared a bit from an audiobook I am listening to. I wish I could tell you I was enjoying it immensely, but I'm still not sure I'll like it.

Canvas Champ (With #Giveaway)

**A canvas print was received to facilitate a review. Opinions are owned by Freda's Voice. Freda's Voice is not responsible for the prize shipment, lost, damaged or stolen prizes.


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.
