I've shared before how being read to and reading were part of my earliest years. Book love was probably my first love.The fairy tale that appealed to me the most was The Frog Prince. Now that is strange. Mostly because I'm terrified of frogs, not to mention other creepy crawlies. But I guess I've always been a romantic.

Nobody wants to be judged.Nobody wants to be around those who make him/her feel “wrong.”When you make people feel like crap, you may convince them to adopt your point-of-view (POV) temporarily. Buy your product, once. Join your program, once.But you know full well that it’s not going to last.

I am not sure how I feel about social media. I have just recently joined Instagram and Twitter. I don’t know my real sense on either. I consider myself quite long-winded, so just trying to figure out how to get into Twitter terminology is an art form in of itself.

BlogHer Writing Lab August 2016The theme for August’s NaBloPoMo is TALESWednesday, August 3, 2016 What do you think is the most dangerous fairy tale we tell kids?Fairy tales are meant to be fun. They are meant to delight. Some even carry lessons. I think the danger comes when we fail to point out to our children what is fantasy and what is reality.

Tuesday, August 2, 2016 Do you believe it’s possible for some people to get that fairy tale ending of happily ever after?All things are possible, but fairy tales are called fairy tales for a reason; they are fantasy tales. Some aspects and events in life seem to be a fairy tale, but do not last for ever after. Life always throws in curve balls.

Hey Guys! How’s your day going? Mine is low key. I’m having a ‘don’t leave the house‘ day today because there is way too much cleaning / organizing tasks that I keep putting off / procrastinating over. I find it hard to stay home and do things on sunny days because I feel as if I’m wasting summer – right? Good thing today is 14C and overcast.

CinderellaCinderella is my favorite fairy tale. I love the classic theme of good versus evil; the oppressed rising above the oppressor. The beauty and goodness of Cinderella shines through with a little magical help from her Fairy Godmother. Her shining beauty and goodness resonates with the goodness in the Prince, causing him to fall deeply in love with her. Even when she vanishes, the good Prince searches for her knowing that only the foot of Cinderella will fit the fragile glass slipper she left behind.

Early this morning as I was getting in my car to go to work I endured a frightening attack as I unwittingly walked into a cobweb and its inhabitant landed on my arm then leg.Those who know me super well can fully appreciate how I am much more emotionally equipped for the zombie apocalypse than such an encounter!The extreme arachnophobia I’ve suffered since childhood kicked in and…well, I’ll spare you the details except to say I woke up the whole house (and possibly the neighborhood).

 Having a mobile-friendly site is great, but there’s much more to keep in mind beyond that. Mobile-friendly isn’t enough – you have to consider what it’s like to use your site on mobile.

My six-year-old daughter made a friend on vacation and for two weeks they were inseparable, forming a storybook bond of friendship. The only challenge is we live in New York and the new friend lives in San Diego. Lucky for us we live in an age of technology; FaceTime at our fingertips.

A friend of mine recently started a Facebook page called Political Noise. I wish he hadn't.Oh, I don't mind that he (mostly) keeps his political rants on a separate page from his puns, movie reviews, and discussions of pop culture. What I mind is the title. There's already too much noise in politics.So much noise that the signal can't get through.

Twitter seems to be going through as many changes as Facebook has this past year. For instance they added moments.  A lightening bolt looking icon located at the top of the Twitter home page. When you click on the lightening bolt you see all the latest trending news. Another change is the favorites icon is now a heart. Who doesn’t like hearts right? Clicking on the heart under a post shows you like it. It’s a great way to acknowledge someone’s Tweet without actually saying something or retweeting it. There are even more changes on the way.
