I'll be featuring a blog soon

Keep your eyes peeled for the new blog I’m adding to “Featured Blogs” in the sidebar. Right now I’ve got 9 blogs featured. I will be adding a new blog this Saturday!

I hope featuring your blogs on the home page of Blog Mommas will help you with new traffic. Who doesn’t love interacting with new readers? I know I do!

I hope you will consider telling all your blog buddies about Blog Mommas. I would like to get back to Blog of the Week, Month, Quarter, and Year.

Right now our directory is at the point where everyone has been featured. Some of you have been featured once, twice, and three times over! That's a log of Blog Featuring.

Please let me know if your blog hasn’t been featured. Also, if you’re linking to Blog Mommas and you’re not listed in the directory please let me know so I can add you.

I’ve decided to Feature Blogs

Featuring Blogs is going to be easy for me and fun for you!

What I’m going to do is dig through the Blog Directory to see who is still active.

If I can easily find a link back to Blog Mommas then you’re in!

I will select a blog to be featured each month.

When your blog is selected I’ll put a link up on the home page!

How cool is that!?

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!!
