Someone restricted me from following them on Google+

I was going through my Google+ account, adding some links, sprucing up my profile, and digging through all my circles.

Low and behold I discovered some strange guy following me and then right next to his name it stated so-and-so has restricted you from following them.

What!? Come again…??

Think about that for a second, some strange person, who I don’t know, has added me to his circles, but he doesn’t want me to add him to my circles?

Not that I would add him to my circles in the first place, but come on, is this strange troll-like spamster for real?

That’s just creepy.

I didn’t waste too much of my valuable time dwelling on this scenario.

I quickly blocked him and moved on.

I had no clue you could restrict someone from following you.

I guess it pays to dig through my circles. I learn something new every single time I do.

Are your facebook pictures blurry?

Check your settings!

Facebook is always adding new items and changing up their user guidelines and rules.

If you’re on your smart phone or smart device go to:

App Settings > Upload HD Photos > Turn it on

That’s it! Problem solved!

Let me know if there’s another setting I may have missed.

Overtype Mode In Word

Do you ever find yourself typing along on your computer or laptop and all of a sudden you make a mistake, only to find yourself typing over everything you just put together on the screen?

This happens to me a lot and I never knew how to fix the problem, until today.

Here’s how to solve the problem:

Select Tools > Options > Edit > Uncheck the box where it says Overtype mode

That’s it! Problem solved!

You’re welcome!

Simplification

One of the things I’ve been interested in lately is decluttering and simplifying my life more. I’ve decided to just take a closer look at my day and see if there is anything I can do to promote efficiency.

With that said, I’ve decided to go ahead and remove the Blog Mommas Facebook and Blog Mommas Google+ pages. I’m also taking down the Blog Mommas Twitter List on my Twitter page. I think that’s going to be a better fit for me personally. Less stressful, too.

I’d like to get back to writing more, networking with other writers, and hopefully I can be more hands on in responding to many of the posts I read throughout the year from your blogs. It’s the interacting and networking with one another that floats my boat, and who doesn't love reading comments?

What have you been up to this summer? What do you think of my decision? I’d love to hear from you guys.

I'm excited to read this book!


I’ve been a fan of Dr. Cloud since I picked up his book about Boundaries. When I found out about an opportunity to help launch his latest bestseller I couldn’t sign up fast enough! I received my copy of the book towards the end of April and am already into the first half.

Dr. Cloud’s NEW book is called: The Power of the Other, The Startling Effect Other People Have on You, from the Boardroom to the Bedroom and Beyond – and What to Do About It by Dr. Henry Cloud.

I’ve always been a self-improvement fan. If there is solid advice out there from a reputable source, I’m usually the first to jump on it. I don’t know about you, but I know that other people have a BIG effect on me, and I can’t wait to see what Dr. Cloud has to say about it.

If you’re interested in reading this book but don’t want to buy it until you’ve had a test drive, you can find Dr. Henry Cloud on Facebook and read his first two chapters for FREE! He posted a link on April 29th giving his followers an opportunity to read the first two chapters. What are you waiting for? Have at it!

Stay tuned here though because I plan to blog about any quotes that I’ve read along the way, how they have impacted me, and what I plan to do with Dr. Cloud’s advice. Or maybe stumbling on parts of the book will have me thinking about things differently? I’ll be writing about those instances over the summer so please stay tuned for those upcoming blog posts.

If you decide to go ahead and pick up the book I hope you will chime in and let me know what you think of it. I’d love to dish about it with you, AND I LOVE to get blog comments, so please leave me a comment or two!!

How to be selected for Blog of the Month

Hey guys, I’m planning to bring back Blog of the Month. Eventually when more bloggers request to list their blogs on Blog Mommas, and we get back into a routine around here, I will bring back Blog of the Week too.

There are a couple of things you can do in order to be selected for Blog of the Month. Here are a few tips in no particular order:


  • Make sure you are linking to Blog Mommas


The first thing I’ll check is whether or not you’re linking to Blog Mommas. Check your sidebar and make sure people can see your buttons and links. If folks have to scroll all the way to the bottom of the page or can’t find any other pages where your links can be found, it makes things hard.


  • Make sure your blog was added to the directory


Please let me know you’re interested in being a part of Blog Mommas. In my sidebar on the right hand side there is a way for you to e-mail me and let me know. It’s very easy to send me a quick message letting me know you want to be part of Blog Mommas and that you’ve linked to Blog Mommas. Some of you may have more than one blog and that’s fine, I’d be happy to list all of your blogs. Once listed, I will introduce your blog to my readers and you’ll automatically qualify to be selected as Blog of the Month.


  • Invite your blog friends to join in on the fun


Tell your blog friends about Blog Mommas. There are perks to being a part of Blog Mommas and you will discover lots of new blogs to read. Some of my closest friends were made through just networking, reading other blogs, and leaving comments. Eventually we all get to know each other and a sense of community is developed, and new friendships made – for life!

Okay, I’m going to go check my e-mail and see if anyone has written me yet!

I can’t wait to list your blog and start featuring blogs again!!
