My First Blog Post at My Blog Stop! Welcome! (UPDATE)

My first blog post (My First Blog Post at My Blog Stop! Welcome!) was dated 2014. Don't laugh! Yes.  There are a lot of strikethroughs.  To borrow from Alanis Morissette's song lyrics: "You live. You learn."


It's almost the end of 2016 and this blog is still here!!



The American Thanksgiving holiday is next week and that this blog has not been deleted is on my list of things to be thankful for.  :)

Presidential Thanksgiving Facts

Thanksgivings Around the World

 


Here is the list of my blogs (or blogging attempts, if your prefer).  Obviously I don't have to include this one on this list, since you're here and reading this.









Below are sample posts. Hope you are impressed! :)

Finding the Path to Successful Affiliate Marketing

Read everywhere about people who earn money from affiliate marketing or advertising affiliate products. Several years back, saw a write-up about an online entrepreneur who insisted he earned thousands of dollars in affiliate referral commissions. Also said it was really easy to do!

If You Could Create A Monster (Reblog)

This cool post is a reblog from my fellow blogger and friend who is participating in a writing challenge.  It's perfect for the Halloween holiday!










Here are my responses to the questions, if I were going to create a monster.


What Does The Monster Look Like?

My monster would have to be green. It's a throwback from that old movie The Exorcist where the possessed girl puked up green vomit. That scene got stuck in my brain and ever since then, that puke color green is associated with monsters. Even though it was the devil. In my mind, devil and monster are the same thing!  But SHE would also be attractive or alluring.  That way people would at first want to approach her.



How Big Is The Monster?
Really huge! Way bigger than an ordinary person because it would give the monster a sense of believing SHE is too big to be overcome. Like the American banks.  (Sorry.  Bad joke.)  That way when the humans take her down, it will be a surprise! “Yeah! That's right! Take that! Bet you didn't even see us coming!!”   :)



What Is Unique About The Monster?
The monster would have a combination of traits borrowed from the X-Men mutants (because I'm not very original).  Not sure what combination, but it would be definitely be able to morph or shape-shift.  Although because it's so big, even though it can change its shape, it still wouldn't be so easy to go run and hide.



What Does The Monster Eat?

Humans! 

Monsters who eat fruits and veggies don't scare nobody! 



Where Does It Sleep?
The monster would have to sleep some place that is either extremely cold or extremely hot, because that would make it more of a challenge for the humans to try to get rid of it while it's resting up for the next day of ravaging the human race.



What would the monsters be called?

My monsters would be called Cannibellas. Well because they're flesh-eating monsters that are also female, and they're not really that ugly or crude to look at. Sort of like the sirens in Greek mythology. They could lure people, especially men.  But because they are so huge, most men would probably run from them!! :)

My 5 Good Fortunes Per My Daughter

My Daughter's Advice Will Be Heeded

Whether the fortune cookie is an American or Chinese tradition is of no consequence because we can all write our own fortunes. However, it is especially nice when someone special writes one for you. In my case, my daughter (at age 12) wrote five fortunes to inspire me.

Even though another fortune says: Advice, when most needed, is least heeded; I'm going to listen to the wisdom of mouth of this babe. It is solid and sound. 



1)  You have great confidence in what you're doing.

2)  You can do great things with your energy.

3)  The voice within you is appealing to many.

4)  You are not afraid of what the future has in store for you. Go forth.

5)  Sharing and being fair to others is just part of who you are. Don't ever change.




* * *
Halloween is not traditionally linked with the Chinese fortune cookie. But in case you hadn’t noticed, traditions are made by humankind and we make them up as we go along, and change them when it’s convenient and sometimes just for fun!  Also, it's my daughter's favorite holiday.  :)

Chinese New Year Symbols of Prosperity (Add On)

Today is February 8, 2016 and it's Chinese New Year – Year of the Monkey. 



Adding on additional content from my post from 2015, when the new year was celebrated on February 19th. Here is a little more info about the cultural traditions and symbols of prosperity. Last year the spotlight was on flowers as an important part of the decorations for the Chinese New Year celebration.  This time it's on fruit.  Tangerines and oranges to be specific. 

"The bright orange color of the fruits also symbolizes 'gold'; hence it has an auspicious meaning to bring in good luck and wealth."

My Best of Halloween Posts on G+ - UNICEF

When I was young there was a campaign/advertisement that came on television every year around or near the time to celebrate Halloween. It went like this: Children would knock on the door and when the neighbor opened their door, instead of asking for candy the kids would shout:

Trick or Treat for UNICEF!

UNICEF logoThe campaign began in 1950.  Certainly made an imprint in my mind. The idea was to get people to donate to the cause of helping children all over the world. I liked the idea THEN and like it NOW. Sharing this precious gem found via the UNICEF Tumblr blog. No doubt there are all kinds of ways one can contribute to such a worthy cause.

UNICEF:
Books, pencils, playgrounds, crayons – not all children will have access to these things going back to school. But they will be exposed to violence: http://uni.cf/1AbEGqt

Always embrace an opportunity, especially when it's a holiday, and find a means to extend charity to those less fortunate. Trick or Treat for UNICEF!!
