Passing by Target on the way to pick up the kids from school I noticed a hoard of harried moms trying to choose from expensive, picked over store-bought Valentines for their children's Classroom Valentine's Day Exchanges.

If you're in the same boat, skip the store made aisle and head to the craft and party sections for foam stickers and stripey straws to make these affordable, fun, and easy homemade Magic Heart Wand Valentines: http://theoutlawmom.com/2014/02/13/homemade-valentines/.

Better yet, check out your local craft store (like +Michaels Stores) for 50% off sales - like we did - instead of regular retailers since craft stores are already on to Easter at this point!

We made 80 wands for under $20 and have leftover materials to play with!

How To Get Started on Google Plus
Why and how to get started on G+ : listen first, act after

I confess: I reacted like you

In August 2011, shortly after Google+ launched, I wrote a post explaining that I was NOT going to be active on G+ because my target audience wasn’t (and still isn’t there). And maybe you have heard me say this on other occasions and it applies to all other platforms: first analyze if you target audience is there, and if it isn’t, don’t waste your time.

Google+ is a different animal

Now, almost 3 years later I realize that it’s different with Google. It doesn’t matter if your target audience is there or not. Because search results do matter to your audience, regardless of which platform they are active, right? So that’s why you should be on Google+ ! Because it’s Google! And because Google runs the search engine market. And if you’re active on Google+, you will rank better !

So how do you get started with Google+?

As always when I learn something new, I started to participate in Google+ and spent most of my time listening. When you start working with a new client, you should start by listening. When learning about a new social platform, it’s the same.

Here's a few people you should listen to on Google+

+martin shervington 
+Denis Labelle 
+Jaana Nyström 
+Stephan Hovnanian 
+Mark Traphagen 
+David Amerland 
+Rick Eliason 
+Ryan Hanley 
+Ronnie Bincer (for Google Hangouts)
+Denise Wakeman 
+Mia Voss 
+Krishna De 
+Mark Vang 

For my Swiss Audience: 

+Valérie Demont 
+Matthias Meyer 
+Carole Rigonalli 
+John Debonneville 
+Laurent Cornalino 
+VeloPlus (Suisse Allemande)

Check out these people, go to their About Page for more resources (or read my post for a summary : http://bit.ly/1q1k5WC) and learn from them ! 

Google+ is a different animal!
