Created by Okoto Enigma.

(Isn’t that marvelous, for her to create a Mystery Award, when her name is Enigma??   That’s so cool!!    Go check out her blog- that’s exactly why she named it the Mystery Award- for herself!!)

  1. If you could change one thing about our country, what would it be and why?
  2.   I would end abortion immediately, because it’s murder.
  3. Which super hero powers would you like to have, if given a chance? Why ?
  4.     I think I already AM a super hero!!    After all, I decluttered my house down to the bone!   lol
  5. What motivates you to blog (write) ?
  6.     Wanting attention!!      Having a place to pour out my thoughts.    For accountability.    To connect with the world.    Because I love words!!
  7. What is something you like to collect, if anything?  
  8.     It used to be fabric!     And anything purple.     Now, I’m going to collect feelings; feeling good about myself, and how peaceful my new home is.    (Once it’s unpacked!!)
  9. If given the chance to rename any fast food restaurant, which would it be? What would it’s new name be?   Checkers would become Cheeseys.     Does anyone ever even SEE a checker there???     Nope!!    But plenty of cheese!!

Please forgive the answers being numbered too.    I just can’t get those numbers to behave!!    Because it’s math- that’s why!!

Rave Review

As I’ve mentioned before;  Janice is the author of the wildly successful e-book;   slob, humor, BBFFJ's book

And why is she so successful, you may ask??      Because she follows her own expert advice!!

 

So, of course since she’s my BBFFJ, I eagerly offered to read it, and give a review.      (I’m no dummy!    I’d be first to find out her secrets!!)

In her list of 71 Tested Tips to Help you Blog Better”, she solicited quotes from 71 of her readers.    Even me!!    And I’m as far from an expert, as you can get!    (I didn’t even know what SEO was, until BBFFJ taught me!  )     

 #48. “Comment on others’ blogs.”      And as you might expect, she was the one who taught me that, as well!

This e-book will introduce you to outstanding blogs, and bloggers that are very influential in the field.    Networking is of supreme importance, and you will acquire that skill set.

Seriously, BBFFJ’s e-book is the encyclopedia Britannica for Blogging!      (Oops, I think I just gave away my age there!)     She includes all the wealth of knowledge needed to do exactly as the title says.

Need to know WHERE to promote your blog??     Look no further!    Don’t know WHEN, or HOW to promote your blog?    Never fear!      Janice is here!    (With the answers to ALL your questions.    No, she won’t tell you where Jimmy Hoffa is; it has to be Blogging related!)

This book is a compilation of her posts teaching the ins and outs of blogging.   

  • Knowing when to start a blog.
  • Finding your niche.
  • Finding your voice.
  • How to make, and use excellent graphics.
  • How to post superior content.

Under “Examples of Blog Brands”, my BBFFJ once again features lil, ole ME!  {And no, I’m not paying her off!  😉 }

“Melinda Mitchell has a self-deprecating online presence. Her persona is funny, creative, and highly critical of herself. She calls her blog Purple Slob in Recovery, and that is her online presence—she is a purple slob. Bear in mind I am not calling Melinda a slob. This is her online name for herself. Her self-deprecating persona continues into her posts. A typical post, “Library Loser,” explains how she loses library books. Her avatar is that of a woman wearing purple, looking distressed.

slob, humor, Purple Slob- me!

She carries this “purple” theme across her social media. Her Facebook name is Purplelinda. Another creative maneuver that makes Melinda a stand-out blogger is her use of alliteration in her headlines. “Dying Dishes” is another one of her posts detailing the filth that covers her dishes. The post asks where dishes that dirty go to die.”

Oh, ok, I forgot for a second there that I was reviewing my BBFFJ’s book.  Enough about me!!     Back to the book!!

Another vital topic is; “87 Free Blogging Tools.”       Everything in the book is pure gold, so have your highlighter at the ready!!

“Currently, there are over 1 billion websites online. In order to make yours stand out and achieve visibility, you need an action plan.”      If your action plan does NOT include devouring this book, you’ll be sorry!      GET IT TODAY!!

 

 

Can you tell I love slob, humor, happy! ?        Oh fer Pete’s sake!      WE know you love yourself!       This is about JANICE, not you!!       Not that anybody would know that, with all the references to yourself you crammed into Janice’s review!

Oh, right!     Janice!

I love Janice, and Janice loves me!       Now go buy her book, and she’ll love you too!

Melinda’s Many Mentions

Lately, I’m just everywhere on the webz!!      What??      You’re not familiar with Melinda’s many mentions??       Let me help ya out there!

My BBFFJ, and I have a long standing habit of writing about each other.slob, humor, society

 

 

 

 

 

 

Queen Anne started off a de-cluttering round of “Melinda’s Many Mentions”.

Back to my BBFFJ.

Challenge

 

(The fact that Judy started the quote challenge, and then I nominated people, and they were obligated to thank me, has nothing to do with this shameless self promotion!)

Marsha, Marshmallow, Marsha

I wanted to name this post “Marsha, Marsha, Marsha!”          (Remember The Brady Bunch??)          But then, I decided putting marshmallow in the middle would be more fun!!

slob, humor, Marsha  slob, humor, marshmallow  slob, humor, Marsha

     Sweet lady!!    Sweet treat!!     Sweet lady!!

Marsha wrote about me yesterday!!

  1. PurpleSlobInRecovery.com Melinda is funny and personable. She wrote, “I began blogging, in August, 2014, as a way to hold myself accountable for cleaning up my house, and forcing it to “lose weight”, by de-cluttering.  Little did I know that 8 months later, I would embark on a journey of forcing myself to lose weight as well!!” She lost a lot of weight and gained a lot of confidence because of blogging. “

 

This is part of a review of my BBFFJs new book; Insider’s Guide to Building a Successful Blog.

 

Thanks, Marsha!!       Looks like I might have to print up more T-shirts!
