Celebrate the small things and a small favour!


Happy Friday everyone, hope you have had a good week. I'm finishing the week with a cold but hey ho!
I'll cheer myself up by celebrating the little things that keep us going in this fun weekly hop hosted by Viklit at Scribblings of an Aspiring Author. Why not head over and sign up ready for next week, it's a great way to help focus on the small things that easily get overlooked in our busy lives.

So this week I'm celebrating - Learning how to email documents to my Kindle! This is probably so easy for most of you but I'm not the most techno minded person in the world and I'm proud of working it out all by myself!

Finally, as I hinted at in the title, I'm after a small favour from any of you who use Twitter or Facebook. My daughter, who is at university studying Advertising and Marketing, is undertaking an assignment that involves producing an eco online campaign. She has produced a Facebook page and a Twitter account in the name of her eco character - Poly Ethylene. She would be delighted if you could hop over and maybe 'like' or follow her links. I even set up a Twitter account myself last night (yikes another first to celebrate I guess!) and I will try and get my head around how it all works. I want to help her if I can, obviously because I'm her mum, but also because it will hopefully be jolly useful having my own qualified Advertising/Marketing expert in the future! And she said she would make me some more graphics for my blog!

Anyway the links are below should you feel able to help her out or simply want to have a look what she is up to! A million thanks in advance.

Happy weekend one and all :)

  10. Hi Suzanne,

    I'm really behind the times. I don't have a Kindle and I can barely use an "Etch-A-Sketch" :)

    Consider those links shared as of now. Enjoy the weekend, my friend.

  16. Yay for figuring out something about your Kindle! I just bought a tablet (there aren't any e-readers in Egypt) and trying to get it to read books is kicking my butt. It's Android, and I have to download some "Aldiko" thing and install it. I'm about as techno-gifted as you, so it'll be a challenge. :(

  17. New technology is good, it keeps old brains working!

    I'm not on Facebook or Twitter but I do like looking at what other people are doing on there (it's the time factor that puts me off joining in). Very impressed with your daughter's Facebook page - I've bookmarked it and will look in again.

  18. Thanks for taking a look, Linda. I know what you mean about the time factor, I'm not sure I can cope with much more!

  19. I'm not on Facebook either, but happy to follow you on twitter.

    1. I find emailing my completed manuscript to my Kindle a great way to read it through and check editing etc. It somehow makes it seem like a real book!

  21. This sounds really interesting! Maybe we can follow one another on Twitter?
