Yep, here is it. What to View When You have the Flu. https://www.apartfrommyart.com/what-to-view-with-the-flu/
I was there and this is what I did to entertain myself while feeling like I had been hit by a truck! This is a bad one. Read all about it. I'd love it if you could comment on the blog if you had the flu or if you've seen the videos I've watched. What do you like drinking when you're ill?

It all started with a tickle in my throat but, I thought, “Not me.” I had been a very responsible person and gotten that flu shot my husband had been bugging me about.  Nope. Not me. But the coughing didn’t stop and in classic denial, I said to myself…

I had the honor and the fun to be photographed by Ari Seth Cohen, of AdvancedStyle​ for his next book Advanced Love. Bob and I spent the afternoon being photographed by him. It is so perfect because this month we will be celebrating our 57th anniversary and these photos are the best commemoration! Thanks for the gift Ari Seth Cohen​.

OKAY. I'll try it!
Why Bloggers Need to be Using Pocket

Honestly, I have no idea how I managed without it. Pocket is a link saving tool that works very well on both phones and desktops. If you run Chrome, you can get the extension, which allows you to save any page for further reading.

Why Not Just Use Pinterest? This is the number one question I asked myself too. Here's why Pinterest is not a good place to store "later reading".

Pinterest is a social platform. It's a stream of content that is public. Now, you could use secret boards, but honestly- a lot of articles I read don't have images that I like. I want to hit one button and be done with it.

You do not want to be loading your boards with content you haven't fully vetted yet. Your Pinterest strategy will tank if people can't trust the content you put out there.

Pocket hooks up with Twitter beautifully The truth is that in order to save a tweeted link, you have to go to the post first, then pin it. Pocket has a little add-on that allows you to save the link to read later- no need to navigate off Twitter.

As a blogger, your social media profiles need to be full of good content, and not just your own. This means you need to be a researcher, and not just a broadcaster. Pocket helps you find and save content of others that might be interesting to your followers.

Happy Sunday!
