30 Days to a Better Blog: Day 10 – Add Images or Video to Each Blog Post

Very good advice!!!  I started doing pictures/videos recently because my facebook page looked weird with all the PinkMama's Place buttons on every post.  I know that's a weird reason why to use pics but it makes my FB page look better. 

This is something I already started doing but will definitely continue!

No Kissing Sign

Well last night this was delivered to our bedroom. My husband and I was on the bed (fully clothed) watching TV and the kids were in the living room which is right outside our room. I had my head on my hubby and kissed him and within 10 minutes we got this sign.

We joked with them that this is better than fighting! Then I said...yeah we are in OUR room and can do what we want plus we didn't kiss in front of you. But daughter came back with....we heard ya! Oh geez kids, really! We just shook our heads and kissed AGAIN AND AGAIN! They of course made the puking sounds and told us to stop! Whats wrong with a lil peck here and there, we are not deep throating people!

Someday they will be parents and I hope they get this sign too!

30 Days to a Better Blog: Day 9 – Establish a Review Policy

I haven't done that many reviews (WOULD LOVE TO DO MORE) but I guess this is very important and all of us who do reviews should have this on our blog.  I will!

Things to include in your review policy:

■Overview: State the objective for your reviews. Are you looking for the best products for your audience? Are you looking to provide well-rounded reviews for your readers?

■What You Look at in a Review: Tell your audience what you look for in the items you’re reviewing, and how you will write the review. Are you looking at content? quality? price? value? other specific factors?

■Items You’re Looking to Review: Make a list of the items you are interested in reviewing – and an example of the items you’re not willing to review.

■Whether You’re Willing to Accept Samples: A variety of companies look to provide bloggers with a sample that they need to return. Some bloggers are fine with that (this way they can review expensive items), while some find it a pain.

■How to Request a Review: Provide contact information for companies looking to send you a review product.

■How You Handle a Review: Tell potential companies how you handle the review. If it is a product that you don’t want to pitch to your audience or would review badly – do you still want to include the review? Will you let the company know? Will you send the product back or pass it on to another reviewer?

■Disclosure: Bloggers are now legally required to disclose if they received an item as a sample and/or were paid for their review as a way to provide transparency to the reader. You can find several sample disclosure on the web, or I found this interesting website that gives you a way to visually display your level of disclosure.

30 Days to a Better Blog: Day 8 – Add/Edit Your About Me Page

What should you include on your About Me page? Any or all of the following: 
  • Your name
  • A recent photo
  • Your education and/or work history (if relevant to the blog)
  • Why you started the blog
  • Your goal(s) for the blog
  • A link to your contact page (and an invitation for people to contact you)
  • Links to other blogs/websites you may write for or run

Okay going to add a picture, why I started the blog, my goals, and other blogs I do!  I don't think I want to add my education/work though, no need at this moment! 
Always use you VOICE.  I might not be the best in the english language and my spelling sucks but I still write in my voice.

Paris Tassin - Temporary Home : American Idol 10 Auditions !

LOVED HER on American Idol last night! What a wonderful MOM too! She is my FAV so far!

30 Days to a Better Blog: Day 7 – Interlink

Today’s tip is a short one, but an important one. Get in the habit of interlinking (linking back to your own content) within the content of your post. Your blog isn’t a place to be shy and self-effacing. If you have good, relevant content – link back to it!

I know I don't do this and I'm a bit confused on how to do this...but I think it is telling us to use our OWN links in our posts. 

Don't forget to do FaceBook Friday http://pinkmamasplace.blogspot.com/2011/01/facebook-friday-lets-link-up.html
