If so, I want to tell you about something that I have seen on facebook for a while now. I have mentioned it to a few people but I don’t think I was explaining it very well.

If you’re using tools to automate posting of your blog feed to facebook, it’s being lumped together with everyone else who does it. I doctored this screenshot up a little because I didn’t want it to seem like I’m calling anyone out. Most of what you see above showed up in my facebook news feed yesterday.

Meet Prince, our new kitty cat. She is nine years old and she belongs to my sister. A couple of weeks ago my sister asked me if we would take her and give her a good home. Although I completely disagree with the reasons and would only ask someone to take care of my pets permanently if I were dead (don’t worry, I told my sister all of this)…how could I say no to an unwanted pet who is a member of the family?

It's been a little bumpy but after a little over a week, she is getting adjusted.

Have you ever commented on a blog or asked a question and forgot to return to see if the blogger has replied to you? Often a blogger will have a checkbox option for you to select but if it’s a popular blog and they receive a lot of comments, your inbox may start getting inundated. Thus, why I never check the box on WordPress blogs that ask me if I want to receive follow up comments via email.

Earlier, I tweeted the following tweet:

And when I receive that email notification, I almost always return to the scene of the crime (the original post), so the blogger will receive another click-through. And sometimes I will even reply to their reply.

Do you have a smartphone but it doesn’t have apps? Or have an iPhone or an Android and want to post pictures to facebook and/or twitter without having to use an app?

There have been times where I wanted to post a picture to both twitter and my facebook fan page (or personal page) using my iPhone but I didn’t have time to bring up both a facebook and twitter app. I know there are apps out there that post to both but I don’t like them all that much. I like to use twitpic for my twitter pictures and those other apps don’t support twitpic. If the twitter picture service you use allows you to post via email, you can still do what I’m showing you below.

This is all done via email and it’s very easy to set up and once you get the hang of it, it will save you so much time. I found this very useful when I participated in the Susan G. Komen Tampa 3-Day for the Cure last October and I will be using this technique once again when I participate in a NASA Tweetup at the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida for the final launch of space shuttle Endeavour STS-134 (squeee!) this week. I was thrilled and shocked when I was picked out of 4,000 registrants for 1 of 150 slots.

  • I’ll show you how to obtain the posting email address for your fan page & your personal account.
  • I’ll show you how to obain the posting email address for your twitpic account.
  • Then, I’ll show you how to easily set it up so it takes just seconds to post to both facebook & twitter.

We love shopping at Sam’s Club so when I had the opportunity to attend the Grilling Expo several weeks ago and post about my shop, I jumped at the chance! I remember when this location first opened near us, we were so excited, okay my husband was even more excited than me!

When we arrived we noticed they had a temporary garden center in the parking lot, there were a few items we’re interested in including the palms.
