Hey Everyone and HAPPY HALLOWEEN a little early. Guess what? I’m taking over Friendly Fill – Ins this week. I was just on Four – Legged Furballs Blog and 15 AND MEOWING.com Blog and read their answers and their quite good. I’m going to give it a shot and hope you like my answers. My answers will be in orange italics and the question in black.
1.) For Halloween, I want to be a human that loves cats and other animals.
2.) Having my own throne and getting to lay on it when I wantmakes me feel like royalty.
3.) On a dark and stormy night, I like to lay on the landing or steps behind Dad’s recliner because I feel safe there.
4.) If I had a witch’s cauldron, I would stir up a potion for getting rid of my itchies and bities permanently and I would get every animal and furfriend a good permanent home all at the same time.

What is Bookish First website? It’s a site you go to enter raffles and gain points by giving your opinion or review of first Look at the books.
When this site said you can share your book reports. What they didn’t say was it had to be on a book on their site. I’m going back and forth with their people and told them if they wouldn’t give me my points back and account back to delete all my accounts. I also told them I was not happy at all.
Have you been to this site? What are your thoughts? Please if you have suggestions, please give them.
This week since the Queen Mom Deputy Sister Crystal has the week off I get to do Caturday Art and Sunday Selfie is still up in the air. If I do something for Sunday Selfie it will probably be of wildlife. Get a lot of those pictures now days.
Well back to Caturday Art. It was hard to decide what to do so I did it as a progressive Caturday Art. So here they are and the original pictures are at the end that I used. ENJOY!!
Writing book reviews can be fun or it can be frustrating. Let me explain. You see writing reviews on my blog and Goodreads is easy and fun. However, if you want to write a review on Amazon you have to purchase so much on Pay Pal, Debit Card, Credit Card and etc… They have strict rules.
I bought about 100+ books for free of different reviews and have received 3 books from 2 different authors for my honest reviews. No thanks to Amazon I can’t review a book on Amazon unless I spend a minimum amount of $50.00 I think. Not Good. I’m going to contact them again and see what happens. Right now I’m not a “happy camper”. Wish me Luck. I’ll need it.
I’m sorry and sad to say I only got 1 caption for this but that’s OK because the caption I did get was a good one. I not only want to thank greg-in-washington for sending me a caption I want to tell him his blog is very good and congratulations to him because he’s the caption winner.
When my Mom, Dad and I came home from vacation to check on the house and Daisy Mae We got a huge surprise. It wasn’t a bad surprise thank goodness quite the opposite actually. Our Surprise was quite good. We got what I call a Flower/Plant Surprise. Below are pictures of the Flower/Plant Surprise we got. Hope you enjoy them.
My nephew went on a school field trip to New York where they took a tour. This happened on Mother’s Day Weekend. The school took 6 bus loads of students. My nephew sent this picture to his mother who sent it to me and now I’m sharing it with you.

MAKING A SOCIAL CALENDAR
So If you start seeing posts you thought you saw and/or read before it’s possible you may have. I’m not on the internet much so probably won’t see much from there. Also part of today’s task is to make a social calendar. If you don’t know how to make a social calendar here are the tips WordPress University gave.
Friday, April 15: Tweet My “Best Of” Page.
Monday, April 19: Tweet My Top Post From March.
Wednesday, April 20: Tweet My Top Post From Last Week.
Friday, April 22: Tweet My Post From Earlier This Week.
Monday, April 25: Tweet A Great Post I Found This Week.
This explains things a little better. I appreciate all the help trying to understand this.
TOOLS FOR MAKING A SOCIAL CALENDAR
You Can Keep Your Social Calendar In A Draft Post On Your Site.
Create A Calendar Using An App Such As Word For Windows Or Pages If You Use Mac.
Simplenote Is A Great App That Allows You To Take Notes From Anywhere (On Your Phone, Tablet And Laptop) So It’s Great For Capturing That Idea You Have For Your Social Media Calendar Whenever Inspiration Strikes.
If You Prefer The Analog Approach, Jot Down Your Calendar Using A Pen Or Pencil In A Notebook.
APPS THAT CAN HELP YOU SCHEDULE YOUR REPROMOTION
BufferIs A Great Tool That Allows You To Schedule Posts On Social Media In Advance.
CoScheduleIs A WordPress Plugin That Allows You To Set Up A Sharing Schedule For Each Individual Post. Note That CoSchedule Works Only With Self-Hosted WordPress Sites.
I don’t know if some of you use a social calendar or not. However, according to WordPress it helps. If any of you have suggestions I will take them under consideration.
While I was thinking about what to do for Sparks I had a thought and that thought was why don’t you do something with the meaning of encouragement. Of course I tried and tried to come up with something else but all I could think of was wanting Spring to get here and the sunshine and the pretty flowers to stay for a while. Then I said to myself, flowers that’s it I’ll do it on flowers. So I looked up on the internet to see what flowers are associated with encouragement and friendship and this is what I found. I have included their meanings as well.
ENCOURAGEMENT AND FRIENDSHIP FLOWERS AND THEIR MEANINGS:

Today is day 6 of my blogging course Branding and Growth: Dig Deep into a Social Network.
Pick a social network you’ll use to grow your blog, and outline a plan for how you’ll use it.
Network I Picked:
The social network I picked was LinkedIn. I do share on Google+ but use LinkedIn more. I am connected to have my posts shared to my connections On LinkedIn and on Google+ I can only share to my profile and comment. LinkedIn is my best bet. I’ve added sharing buttons so everyone has the opportunity to share my posts.
