This is another one of those rambling posts with no set structure before I started banging away on the keyboard….
After almost a month, I guess it’s not so new anymore…but if you haven’t had a chance to stop by and see the new website, give it a look-see this weekend by either clicking here or typing in www.fkbooksandtips.com into your computer’s web browser. In addition to an archive of the free Kindle book offers I have told you about (and many of them are still free), you can also peruse the various tips and tricks (click here or type in http://www.fkbooksandtips.com/tag/kindle-tip/ into your computer’s web browser) I’ve told you about over the years.
While the basic look and feel is the same as it was when it was launched almost a month ago, but I do have some look and feel improvements written down I need to send to the website developer. If you have any suggestions for the site, please email them to me (Michael at fkbooksandtips.com) and I’ll see what we can do.
I get asked from time-to-time if the blog is on various social networking sites. The short answer is “yes,” and in my unprofessional opinion there seems to be yet a new social networking site various people say you absolutely, positively have to be on. Today’s gotta have it is tomorrow’s also-ran (whatever happened to the Excite search engine or MySpace?), and unless the linking to the blog is automatic there are limits to how many things you can connect.
Here are the other “official” sites replicating the blog, although I am aware of other “unofficial” sites replicating the posts:
I will admit the Pinterest and Klout sites are relatively new additions over the last two weeks – in other words, I’m still trying to figure them out!
Speaking of Facebook, I’m asked if it is okay to “friend” me….of course! When you go to the Facebook page, you will see my name and the cartoon character I’ve put up for my picture. Just click on it and you will be taken to my personal page associated with the blog: friend away!
Why the cartoon character? I don’t know…maybe I’m too paranoid about security issues! If I ever have a blogging career full-time, maybe I’ll put up the real deal!
What Am I Reading Now?
I’m asked that question quite a bit – the answer for today is nothing at all. I have a lot of “to-do’s” around the house and yard this weekend, as well as the typical attendance of kids’ activities a lot of us seem to have this time of year. The weather is actually kind of nice here in Houston this weekend – the kids and I even planted some tomatoes, basil, lettuce, and peppers last weekend in the garden (I’m turning into my Dad), and I need to throw down some fertilizer either this weekend or next. For those of you scratching your head, you pretty much mow your yard year-round in Houston!
Anyway, that’s about all for now – now off to the next activity!
Have a great rest of the weekend-
