So this is the homemade sauce with the meatballs. So I would include both in a package for the campaign.

Now this against potato salad I'm not sure how I would do but it might be worth a shot?

Any negative thoughts about this idea I am willing to listen. Any positive thoughts I will listen to also. Decision time.

Here is the potato salad link...https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/324283889/potato-salad?ref=nav_search

On Kickstarter

A guy starts a campaign on Kickstarter to raise money so he can make potato salad. That's correct, you read that right potato salad.

At this point he is over $5100.00. Not bad for potato salad.

So I was thinking if he could do that for potato salad what could I do for homemade Sicilian meatballs would I be too late?

+Shannon Lim I don't know but I can't believe people would invest in potato salad. Maybe we should do a combined treat. Satay and meatballs. LOL

More great information from +Mike Allton on using branded short links. 

I need to look into this for my blog.
 
How to Create a Branded Short Link

Short links. The internet is full of 'em. Over the past ten years, they've become ingrained into every aspect of our online lives. TinyURL's and Goo.gl's and Bit.ly's and more. Each one promising quick, abbreviated access to wonderful news and information.

But what if you could do more?

What if you could not only use such links to track effectiveness of your social shares and online activity, but also communicate brand at the same time?

We're talking about using custom branded short links -- URLs that reflect your business name in some way, rather than a random third-party service. Using TheSMH.co instead of bit.ly, for instance.

Today's article walks you through what shortened URLs are, what you can do with them, and how you too can set up your own branded shortener that can be used by Bit.ly, Buffer and more.

Read on!

#SocialMedia   #SocialMediaMarketing  #Shortlink #LinkShortening #Bitly 
By using your own custom branded short link, you reinforce your brand awareness, as well as ensure that you're taking full advantage of all the benefits shortened links offer. Learn how!

These are the meatballs I am talking about instead of raising money for potato salad.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/324283889/potato-salad?ref=nav_search

I can't believe how well he has done and still has 26 days to go. I could keep sending meatballs out to people.

I'd much rather have meatballs - I'm a meatball fanatic.  Favorite kind are the Sicilian ones with currants and pignoli.

Introduction
I worked in an industry for years that required quick thinking and instant decisions. It also required an in depth knowledge of international laws. I loved every minute of it except for the times when repercussion came along, but then who likes repercussions?

For the past 8 years I have spent that time creating non-profits and sites to go along with them that concentrate on health related concerns like animal cruelty and rescue, diabetes, obesity and general health in aging. 

I have ADHD and control it (sometimes) without meds. In fact to give you an idea of my ADHD I just had testing done again to see where I was at. I scored a 99.9% on the test and that wasn't in a good way. My writing shows my ADHD mind working and some times it isn't a pretty site, unless you have ADHD also, then it's perfect.

I am on Google+ 100% of the time. No Facebook for me!

Our main health community tied to our blog is Health in the Laugh Lane and you can join by clicking on here.

My goal of the blog, Health in the Laugh Lane is to be helpful to you as much as it is for me. I am not a health expert but I enjoy learning about health and I want others to enjoy it with me. So my blog idea is to create an environment where people want to come not to hear me lecture but learn what I am learning and possibly together we can help each other.

I want to share my experience with everyone here today. About 6 months ago I wanted to start up my blog Health in the Laugh Lane on Wordpress and I really didn't have experience with it. In stepped iHelpers LLC Now only did they get me situated and all set up on the wordpress platform but they also offered management and hosting for the blog. This was more than I could ask for. +iHelpers LLC is the best by far and if I was you I would check out their prices which are unbelievable, their work which is fantastic and their way with motivating you on blogging. Not to mention the hosting packages they have available to one and all. For the novice or the expert turn to +iHelpers LLC for all of your website and blogging need.
