Taking Time to Smell the Flowers…

By | 2016-12-18T17:01:03+00:00 September 23rd, 2012|36 Comments

I think I spent nearly the entire day behind my computer yesterday, working on a project (which I’ll be revealing one week from tomorrow!). Plus, I’m still slaving away at my +onOne Software +Peachpit book to make my deadline next month. Lots to do … so little time … and no rest for the weary.

Thankfully I forced myself out of the apartment this weekend and went to the market. I even have some beautiful dahlias on my desk and kitchen table to show for it. :)

I tend to get very focused on my work when I have major projects and deadlines and my social media presence tends to slow down. Don’t worry though, I’m not going anywhere and I promise to pop in as frequently as I possibly can.

    Just did some gardening today! Love getting in the dirt and planting life. Flowers heal the eyes and soul. :) At least for me.

    Absolutely +Nicole S. Young it makes you appreciate the things that you're doing that much better. By the way are you trying to pull this into your blog automatically as I noticed the #blog hash tag. unfortunately it hasn't been working very well for me (not sure if it is for you).

    +Hark Nijjar I use a +WordPress plugin from +Daniel Treadwell. It works very well for me, the posts go in as drafts and I can even edit them before I publish to my blog, and the comments continue to transfer over, too. You can change the settings in the plug-in to work however you like.

    Thanks +Nicole S. Young I'm using the same plugin, it works great for pulling in everything however when I use the setting to pull in content with a specific hash tag it doesn't. It's probably a setting issue so I will go back and take a look. Thanks for your reply.

    +Hark Nijjar I think the hash-tag is case-sensitive. Maybe see if you're using caps or no caps in your settings.
