5 Beginning Need-Greater Blogger Tips

As a reader of need-greater blogs I'm fascinated by other people's pictures and experiences. I've found some things work well and some things don't. Again, these are just my opinions they are not hard and fast rules but guidelines to make your blog easy to read and easy to follow.

I realize that I am opening myself up to criticism here, but I hope that I will help someone else even while my blog is always a work in progress.

To those of you who don't follow hers, this post resonated so much with me that I wanted to share it. Please check out the link and then come back to see my personal comments on it below.

Whatever your circumstances that distance can be overcome using some modern technology.

Stressed Out!?

View of both beds with curtain pulled back. Beds look a lot closer than they are.
Please don't judge me! I'm going to get another massage today. One of the few luxuries I like to afford myself, after a long and arduous month, is a massage. When I was younger, and had a steady income from my interpreting work, I used to go regularly to a school and let the students practice on me. Well, for the same price I'm getting a pro down here and I love it so much I just had to tell you about it!
