THE JEANS I WORE WHEN I WAS PREGNANT WITH MY SON TREVON

Image

Sifting through the extremely large garbage bag of clothes packed away in the bedroom closet; I ran across a pair of jeans that I haven’t worn since I was pregnant with my son Trevon, and he will be two years old on Wednesday of this week.

I started thinking back to those days when I was pregnant and how it was 90% bad days to the other 10% good days through out my whole pregnancy.  These feelings hit me like a brick all at once, and compiled with the let-down on the cleaning job I was supposed to do for my roomate today (with the lie he told behind it I would have to be a BIG DAMN FOOL to actually believe him); I became enraged and very pissed.

Al the bad feelings of things buried and and the collosal lie I was fed this morning; I’ave been in rage mode all day.  I’ve snapped at my son for nothing and been hateful to everyone around me as well.

If I had just received the “big lie” of 2014 and hadn’t ran across those jeans; I believe I would have been in a better mood today.  I guess the fact that I was looking forward to that money and I really needed it is why I’m so pissed.

I’m still upset now, because I had plans for that money in a lot of ways and now I’m screwed until I can get my child suppport this week.  Thanks for nothing so called friend and roommate.  Some things are better left buried and NEVER dug backup.

CHARMA BASHING DAY CANCELED

Back Story:

I’m doing “my own thing: with this post; but still sticking with the assignment’s theme; with my own twist.  Hope yall like it.  My spouse likes to throw up my mistakes over and over every day and belittle me and hurt my feelings EVERY DAY so his bashing day is canceled because of the alien’s attack on Jacksonville, FL.  The News 4 Channel covered the story.

 

REPORTER:  What we’re witnessing here today is the cancellation of Charma Bashing Day.  Just as the belittling began the spacecrafts entered Earth’s atmosphere and started attacking Myrtle Ave. and 11th Street.  Crackheads and trick-hoes were running from every corner of the neighborhood.  I couldn’t find anyone to interview but this one baser who was geeking on the street corner as the ships began their attack

CRACKHEAD:  I thought Scottie was coming back to beam me up, but then they blew up the trap where I buy my crack; and they had that “drop” too.  I don’t where I’m gonna get my crack now.

The crackhead sees a man who sells crack and he flags him down.

CRACKHEAD:  Hey man, what you got for $2.00?

REPORTER:  There you have it.  The alien’s attack has officially shut down Charma Bashing Day.  This is Shorty Lo for News 4 saying “What up Dog”?

6.  Something From Nothing……

  • Start by “plus ones” on other Google+ blogs and they will plus one you in return

 

  • TWITTER, FACEBOOK AND PINTEREST

 

You can use your Facebook page URL in place of your blog link to reduce over-exposure of your blog. In fact, by interlinking your blog with your Facebook page and your Google+ page and profile, you will be creating a very

powerful traffic-magnet that will also appeal to Google.

 

Community Pages:

Facebook community pages are run by the community and not an individual. You can search for such pages using the Facebook search facility, and add your niche to your search term (e.g. “community pages fishing”). You will be presented with a list of communities, some of which you may be able to join. Those who visit the same community page will have a common interest, which enables you to reach potential visitors that you may otherwise never have found.

 

Groups:

You can create or join groups of people with similar interests. To create a group, go to your Timeline then click on ‘More’. Scroll down and click on ‘Groups’ – you can click to create a group. If you click on the ‘Manage’ button (pencil image) you will see some groups that Facebook has recommended to you. You can joint these if you wish.

 

Using the settings, you can enable members of your group to add and approve other members. This is a good way of meeting prospective visitors to your blog that you would otherwise have been unlikely to find yourself.

Twitter:

Twitter is a very popular means of social interaction, but it can also be a powerful method of generating traffic. Here are some tips on how to use Twitter to your best advantage.

 

Short Tweets:

Although you can use 140 characters, tweets of 100 or less appear to get a higher level of response. Make your tweets short and to the point, finishing with a link to your blog.

 

Use Hashtags:

Use hashtags in your tweet. Use them with your blog name: #techlila or with topics, such as #blogtraffic and #blogingguide so that your tweet will be visible in the feed for that hashtag. This can drive a lot of traffic your way.

 

Retweet:

If you see any tweet that mentions your blog’s name, then immediately retweet it. This gets the mention even more exposure.

Request a Retweet:

Each tweet has a link allowing a retweet by the reader:

 

Use Images:

Images tend to attract people, and if you have an image in your tweet it might persuade readers to click on your link.

 

Use Your Bio:

 

Your Twitter Profile contains a box for your bio. Use your blog URL in the Profile itself, but also

include the URL of a particular post you want to publicize in your bio box. You can change that regularly to promote specific posts. Alternatively, include a link to your Google+ profile page. You have 160 characters to use.

 

Include @mentions:

 

You can make sure that a specific user receives your tweet by including their user name in the form @username in the tweet.

The link will be condensed by twitter of course, but you can see how we have

a) hashtagged SEO myths, so that the tweet will appear in the feed for     anybody searching for that term,

b) mentioned TechLila so that they specifically will receive the tweet,

c) requested a retweet and

d) included the blog URL.

 

The @mention would naturally include another person’s personal or business user name, because you would not tweet yourself! That person may then start following you, and is likely to retweet since it motions their name.

 

Pinterest is increasing in popularity by leaps and bounds. In fact, Mashable among other sites, has stated that as from a year ago,‘Pinterest had been generating more traffic to users’ blogs that YouTube, LinkedIn and Google+ combined, and is more effective in this respect than even Twitter.

 

Whatever the reason is for this, it will pay to get involved. Register using Facebook or Twitter and then start pinning some images from your blog to your board – even if it is only your business logo.

 

You can also pin your readers’ images to your board – ask them for some and keep them involved.  Once you have uploaded your photo to a board, make sure you link it back to your blog.

 

When you edit your pin you can give it a good title, and then complete the ‘Source’ box with your blog’s URL – or even that of a specific post. If you also include your blog’s URL in the Description, it will turn the image into a clickable link.  Make sure that you have a hover Pin-it button on each of your images.

 

In conclusion, add your blog link on your profile and page.  Set up google authorship for your blog, here is the complete directions Set-up Google Authorship Put a Google + badge on your website.  Host Hangouts.  Hope these tips will help you to get traffic from google plus.
