Because I LIKE it......
My friend Susan over at Between Naps on the Porch wrote the most informative post this week on secret tips for bloggers. It is everything you wanted to know on blogging, every question you always wanted to have answered but didn't know who to ask. It's the answer to what you need to know to make blogging easy and fun.

I want to agree with what Susan said in her post about comments. So many times I want to leave a comment, and there is word verification...or worse yet the entire blog page will move to an entire comment page from the actual blog post, instead of a pop up window. This makes it difficult for your reader. So many times I want to continue to read a blog and leave a comment on each post, but because I cannot see the post, I forget exactly where my thought process was going on a comment and having to go back in forth between the post screen and the comment screen, I reluctantly give up. Making a pop up window is sooooo easy, just go to your blogger settings, click on comments and make the change in the comment form placement. Click save.
Another pet peeve that can cut down on comments, word verification. In the two years I have been blogging, I have yet to have a "robot" mess up my system, or anything else for that matter. It is not necessary, and again makes it easy for the reader to leave a comment. I do however, believe in comment moderator, allowing you to see comments before they are published. It's just a safety net.
I want to share some product recommendations that I recently discovered...
Dove Body Wash with Nutrium Moisture, it is a ground breaking skin care advance that not only is beneficial to your skin, it smells as good as it works. Dove’s 50-year heritage in cleansing and caring for skin continues to be on forefront of skincare innovations, so it’s no surprise that the brand has discovered how to restore skin’s natural moisture while cleansing (with body washes). Minimizing protein and lipid damage while cleansing is critical for maintaining healthy skin. Other moisturizing body washes use a moisturizer that sits on top of the skin. Only Dove contains NutriumMoisture™, a breakthrough formula of soybean oil and natural lipids that can nourish deep down. Find out for yourself, visit http://www.dove.com/ for dramatic video proof, product information and to learn more in-depth explanation of the science behind Nutrium Moisture.
Speaking of clean skin, I have been trying to drill into the head of my 11 year old daughter the importance of taking care of her skin today and explaining the importance of that action being the cause for good skin later in life. It is taking her some getting used to getting into a routine. She too uses the Dove body wash, but for her face she has been using Pond's Wet Cleansing Towelette's in the original formula. It is the perfect thing to slip into her gym, swimteam and cheer bag to remove the small amount of makeup (she has talked me into allowing her to wear) before and after workouts.
POND’S Wet Cleansing Towelettes, the No. 1 brand of wet cleansing towelettes, gently remove make-up and even waterproof mascara. Clinical studies have shown that Pond’s towelettes remove the make-up that other brands leave behind – taking off up to 40 percent more than other leading towelettes.
Available in three varieties, they are ophthalmologist and dermatologist tested for a gentle face cleansing experience.
