I've been spending the morning and part of last night trying to get the blog the way I would like it.

I believe I've made some great progress and hope you will share your thoughts with me here.

Also I haven't blogged in a while due to a stupid move on my part. I actually thought of killing the blog and moving it to another place, but I really didn't like the feel over there after a week or so.

So I am keeping the blog and making a few adjustments on how I do things till I get more writers involved.

By the way if you are interested in writing for It's All Mishegoss let me know here and I will let you know what I am looking for.

Thanks

My Sicilian Grandmother had this saying when it came to me. In english it comes out like, "You can no find better" when she introduced me to people.

So in that case "You can no find better" for photos then Google Photos and +Mike Elgan proves it.

You can no find a better review than +Mike Elgan right here. 
 
Why you want Google Photos!

(Read my full review: http://goo.gl/9BsDjT )_

We all love to take pictures. Smartphones make it easy.

Because it's so easy to take pictures, we take a lot of them. (I personally have more than 80,000 photos and videos which take up more than 215 gigabytes of space.)

That's when the fun ends and the hassle begins. The truth is that managing, sharing and editing photos is harder than it should be. Most of us lost control of our photo collections long ago.

Labeling, tagging and organizing photos is difficult and time-consuming. But if you don't do all of those things, can be hard to find a specific photo.

Pictures are inconvenient to share, too -- especially when people are scattered across different social networks. (And there's always that odd relative who isn't on any of the social networks.)

Editing pictures can be difficult and time-consuming. It's also tediously labor-intensive to do creative things with pictures.

And at some point, all those photos can max out the storage on our phones. Yet we hesitate to delete them because we're afraid of accidentally getting rid of pictures we want to keep.

The only product or service that solves each and every one of those problems is Google Photos, which Google announced Thursday at its Google I/O developers conference.

Here's why I think you'll switch to Google Photos:

Talk about nailing it! +Danny Brown tells it like it is as always and in doing so nails the reason we write.
 
Be proud of every single word

Lazy content enriches no-one. Not the blogger, and certainly not the reader, despite what they believe. And on and on the circle grows, until we’re all back at square one and no-one cares.

Amira Elgan originally shared to My Food:
 
Mexican Taco Casserole with Bison and Cannellini Beans

Bison meat sautéed with onions, jalapeños, Yukon potatoes, garlic and lots of herbs and spices. I made a tomato sauce with onions and fresh cilantro to drizzle over both layers. Topped with goat raw cheddar typically but used munster because that's what I had on hand. Served with guacamole and fresh salsa or pico de gallo. Delicious! 💛

Life doesn't have to suck and you don't have to die if it does.

Sounds like a great deal of philosophical crap doesn't it? Maybe, but it's true.

Look I think about all of the times in a day I mention life sucks then you die, but I never die. Amazing. I know I should've of died by now. LOL

The thing is we all have those moments or day and we go on to the next one and still keep going. Why?

read one and see if you agree with me.

Silk road Founder Ross Ulbricht Sentenced to Life

Do you think this is fair?

I am still in shock. I should know better after dealing with he feds for years and how they hand out judgements like it is nothing, but even I wasn't ready for this one.

The scales of justice were not in balance this day. 

Here is the story: http://www.cnet.com/news/convicted-silk-road-founder-ross-ulbricht-sentenced-to-life-in-prison/?tag=nl.e498&s_cid=e498&ttag=e498&ftag=CADf0e22bf

To all my friends on G+.

Please take the time to read my friend +Alex Hernandez post about the big media machine and how his magazines are the anti-machine.

I promise you will like their content and enjoy the reads I do.
Alex Hernandez originally shared to Just Some Thoughts:
 
So I debated posting this because I really do not want to toot my own horn. But after some thought, I believe our horn deserves to be tooted, because we have a lot of talented people who make our website possible. 
By now most everyone has heard about the big mistake The Verge made by "reviewing" the new Google Photos app when in reality it was the old Google+ Photos app. I don't need to rehash that whole story.

What I do want to say is this.

Sites like The Verge, Engadget, Re/Code, Mashable, Gizmodo, Techcrunch and many many more are all owned by some corporate suit who's paid by even more corporate suits (through advertising). This is how they make money to fund the big trailers at CES and live feeds from MWC.

Day in day out I read posts all through Google+ about how much people hate all these sites because they're biased.

My challenge to you is this.
Try our site for a few months. Break away from the mainstream technology reporting and check out an independently owned tech site. We use one form of ad revenue at the moment, Google Adsense, nothing more. We do not liter your screen with pop up ads and other nonsense. 

We truly want to keep our content front and center and ads to a minimum. But we also want to grow and try and make something of all the hard work we put in. Giving us your support by visiting our site and sharing it with your friends and family goes a long way. 

Sure we're not going to have the breaking news of some of the larger sites but we're all still working full time jobs to support our families. We're working hard to be able to supply breaking news and exclusives if possible but we need more time and more support to get there. 

Help us continue to grow, check out both www.techaeris.com and www.moargeek.com and check in on a daily basis. Bookmark us and add us to your RSS feeds. We should be on Flipboard and Google Play Stand as well. Share us with friends and family and to your social networks. We write what we write because we like it, we're not being paid by a corporation to write for them. Our full intention is to remain independent forever.

Sorry for the long post but I had to get that off my chest. 
Thanks for your time, support and we hope you'll really consider helping us continue to grow.

Sincerely,
Alex Hernandez - Owner of Techaeris and MOARGeek
+Justin Jelinek - Managing Editor
+Jason Bouwmeester - Senior Editor
and the whole +TECHAERIS and +MOARGeek crews

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 sometimes it isn't a pretty site, unless you have ADHD , then it's also perfect.

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.
