♫ Truly HE taught us to love one another, HIS law is #love and HIS gospel is #peace - Placide Cappeau
♫ "Truly HE taught us to love one another,
HIS law is love and HIS gospel is peace.
Chains shall HE break for the slave is our brother;
And in HIS name all oppression shall cease ...
Christ is the Lord! O praise HIS name forever..." ♫
- Placide Cappeau

... And filling ink
My favourite part is reading the instruction manual
Not all writing instruments are created equal
This one is more than 50 years old!
Some writing instruments work like new even after 50 years!

Happy writing ☺

The light shines through the darkness, and the darkness cannot extinguish it - John 1:5
This means that the darkness of evil never has and never will overcome GOD's light ☺

The Quintessential Guide to all Things Social Media
Whether you are a housewife, pastor, enterprise marketer, business owner, student or individual user, chances are you use a social network. And the social interactions we have where we create, share and exchange ideas, pictures and videos is what we call social media. If you want to rock social media, then look no further. The Art of Social Media is a no nonsense guide portraying valuable first hand knowledge from the trenches, by Guy Kawasaki and Peg Fitzpatrick, and written by Guy.
The book starts by showing you how to present yourself with a visually acceptable public profile, then goes on to describe content creation, curation and the best practices of sharing across different social media channels. Talk about helping a socialist out, Guy and Peg have redefined what it means to be a socialist. I loved the example where Guy posts a picture of the Audi A3 odometer and how it generated 500,000 views in 5 days!
Learn how to be bold, brief and add true value to posts. I didn't know there were so many tools and sites to monitor, manage and monetize the social web till I read this book. Any day I'd take advice from someone like Guy who has 6.7 million followers on Google Plus and 1.5 million followers on Twitter. He even tells you how to manage your online attitude.
On the subject of integrating social media and blogging, learn How to "Peg" your posts from Peg. She is a true marketing pro, and a social innovator.
And finally, for those who are constantly trying to get more followers (for whatever reason), I recommend reading Chapter 10. I agree with Guy when he says "Only losers and charlatans buy followers, likes and +1s"
I read this book from start to finish in a couple of hours, and enjoyed every line of it. If you are a newcomer to the world of social media, there is a cool List of Apps and Services at the end of the book which is a very handy reference guide. And the online version of the book has URLs to the actual websites.
To summarize, no two social media enthusiasts could better complement each other in experience, style and knowledge, than Guy and Peg, and write such a functional manual as The Art of Social Media

On a cold night like this, couldn't resist the aroma of baking!
I'm not much of a baker, as you can see from the muffins, so please don't ask how I made them,
(They have raisins, walnuts, golden brown sugar, banana, milk, eggs, flour and lots of love!)
All I know is, everyone likes it ☺
And if I can bake them, anyone can bake them ☺

#Business #SocialMedia If you don't want your #marketing material to be trashed, connect online and engage in a conversation ☺
Whether it is tires, hamburgers, real estate, fitness or furniture you want me to buy,
Please don't waste paper, printing and postage, sending me these,
Because nobody in my household reads them, ever (even if it is personalized and has my name on it)
They just end up in the recycle bin ☺
They just end up in the recycle bin ☺
Instead, connect online (Twitter, LinkedIn etc) and engage in a conversation,
I just might buy from you then!
Have a good weekend friends ☺
