Read The Sign!

We see signs everywhere, both indoors and outdoors. Signs have a role and purpose in everyday life, and companies like the Lowen Sign Company try to make them in such a way that their messages get read and understood.  Yet many times, people don't read them and do not appreciate the fact that most of these signs are there to make life better for everyone.

My Blog Anniversary

I started this blog which I named "Only for Today" on July 17, 2003, long before blogs became popular, and then after a few posts, I forgot all about it.  Well, I don't know why I started one in the first place but after 4 long years, I remembered it, but that's only because it was a time in my life when I was having another burn-out. Obviously this did not last long because my posts began to dwindle once again and became few and far in between as months went by.

Once Lost, Now Found...Entrecard Links

Look what I found! Just when I thought that my Entrecard blogger friends were lost forever, a blogger angel put up a page listing them down (and this blog is in the list!) Thank you so much, Grandma's Goulash ! For those who may not know what Entrecard is...or was, it was a blogger network where you visit blogs by clicking on their ads.  It was like leaving your business card on other blogs and this was very helpful in bringing traffic to your own blog. Although I was not on it everyday, I found some great blogs there and even made friends. So you can imagine my dismay when one day the site just closed down without any warning. I was so annoyed because there were some sites that I liked visiting but was not able to link up with.   Finding this link list (courtesy of a post by Life with a Parasite) sure made my day! Now I can go visit my favorite sites again :)

A Liebster Award Nomination For Life, Day By Day

I have been very busy for the last seven days that I could not get on-line till late evenings, so you can imagine how many e-mails and messages I have not read. If I was really tired, I would just check my mobile browser and see if there is anything important, otherwise I'd go to bed. Tonight after putting my little girl to sleep, I saw that there was a message on this blog's Facebook Fanpage. So, I decided to open my laptop to check it out. Well, surprise, surprise! It was a message informing me that Mom Chronicles nominated Life, Day By Day for the Liebster Award. Thank you so much! I am honored that someone would even think that my blog was worth nominating. Now, I am not a person who cares much about getting recognition but, honestly...this one felt good even if I had absolutely never heard of this award before...hahaha.
