April Instalol: Ready for a New Month

April was a huge month. Many changes, good and bad- changes in living situations, career changes, and health changes. Bowser feels the change, too.

I just can't keep putting things off and taking cat naps like Bowser can.

Blogger App Review- Is it Easier for IPhone Users?

Blogger.com Vs. Blogger App

Recently I downloaded the blogger app for my iPhone 4

I expected to get the same features as I did with the website although I was a little disappointed.

As many of you know, my computer is dead, and I have had no luck in finding a new one ( used is still new to me- hint hint... Still looking....)
So it has been hard for me to post new blogs on my small phone screen.

On top of this, I was laid off Friday- so now my finances are dwindling... So that dream of finding another computer is also dwindling. Luckily, I made a lot of contacts in my two years at Remax, and gained SO much experience!

So let's get a move on!

Here's a bit of an overview of blogger. Com and the  Blogger App

My fellow bloggers know that blogger.com has an easy to use interface with in depth analytical tools- even more so if you integrate google analytics!

Also, Blogger has given us the option to integrate Google+ comments!
More comments = more readers

 Blogger. Com makes it easy for anyone to write about what they know; IT Specialists, Artists, or Crazy old Cat Ladies- don't judge.

I thought the Blogger App would make my Blogging quicker and easier, but I was a bit disappointed in the features.

There are only four main icons on the home screen- Posts, New Post, View Blog, and Settings.

There is no way to see your dashboard, your traffic sources, your views, etc.

If you are looking for the detailed review check it out Here. I hate writing 2,000 word blogs- they belong in informative articles!

I'm sure that Blogger will continue to improve their App, as it is still pretty new.

Mother's Day: Personal Messages For Mom

Mother's Day is coming!
And you are armed and ready with either a blank card, or one from scratch (In the 5 Easy Steps Handmade tutorial!)
Now all you need is that message filled with loving words for your mother, wife, mother-in-law, or any other motherly figure in your life.
Let's start brainstorming!
What type of mother you have you have? Is she the funny mom, who loves to laugh? Does she thrive on humor and practical jokes?

Or do you have a sentimental mother who holds loving words close to her heart? You know, the mom who watches Lifetime movie marathons on Mother's Day, with a gallon of ice cream, and three boxes of tissues?
How about this- your mother the strongest person you know? Perhaps she works three jobs, never takes a day off, and is just a full out workaholic?
If she is a mixture of all three- don't worry- I've got you covered! You can mix and match some of these ideas for messages- dedicated to my mother- happy Mother's Day Ma!

Let's cover all the bases here!

1. The Funny Mom: Messages to Crack Her Up!
Let's Start with some funny- yet tasteful- quotes and jokes to get that inspiration flowing!
"The one thing children wear out faster than shoes is parents."
-John J. Plomp
“My mother’s menu consisted of two choices. Take it or leave it!” ~Buddy Hackett
“Any child can tell you that the sole purpose of a middle name is so he can tell when he’s really in trouble.” ~Dennis Fakes

2. Wise and Sensitive Mom: Messages to Pull Those Heart Strings
Through together some wisdom for the loving mother
"By and large, mothers and housewives are the only workers who do not have regular time off. They are the great vacationless class.
~ Anne Morrow Lindbergh, author
"Being a full-time mother is one of the highest salaried jobs... since the payment is pure love."
~ Mildred B. Vermont
"Youth fades, love droops, the leaves of friendship fall; a mother's secret hope outlives them all." ~Oliver Wendell Holmes

3. Momma's Addicted to Work: Loving Messages For a Workaholic
“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” Maya Angelou, ~author and poet
"Total commitment to family and total commitment to career is possible, but fatiguing."
~Muriel Fox


This is just he beginning. Hopefully, this will get your creativity flowing, and really help you think about what your mother would appreciate.

Starting on Hubpages!

So I'm really excited to start writing for Hubpages.com- I hear that it can produce some passive income overtime. I'll keep everyone updated on how it goes. After I use the site for a bit; I will write a review on how it works, what type of earnings I am receiving, how many views... all of that :)

I just wrote my first Hub (which is the equivalent of an article) and I think it turned out pretty good for a first timer!!!

It is about driving traffic to your Etsy/ebay/online shop in quick, free, and simple ways. I started with three techniques (as that is all I had time for today) and I think I will fallow up with another three sometime later in the week- There are so many more ways!!

Let me know what you think:
Get More Views
I would love some feedback- on here or on there!
Thanks for the support, guys!!!

I have now been on Hubpages for almost two weeks, and I have earned .31 cents.... May not seem like a lot; but it is pretty remarkable that I can write a few articles, not touch them, and still earn some money. Also, I love it! I have 5 articles now, and the online community is very helpful and supportive!
