Indeed! SLS is a really bad one, I can't believe it's "ok" to put natural on the label. I really hope there's some kind of movement to put rules around how it can be marketed. WOW - that is great to hear of the stores cracking down and helping consumers in this crazy market. Love to hear that!

Lauryl Sulfates are another I see all the time in "natural" products, for humans and canines. Arg. Educating yourself matters but I have also found that having a retailer to trust not to sell products with misleading labels helps. We are SO lucky to have three truly natural pet stores doing a whole lot of the ingredient research for us within walking distance!

I wasn't getting results by targeting the UK or USA so I went local and tried to catch India where I got quantity, just no quality.

Ah I see! I don't think I've seen any of those yet. What region are you targeting?

Fake accounts in my book is Celeb pics as profile display pictures, a smattering of random friends, celebrity or unreal names, screenshots from films or silly quotes as the only content ever shared.

Thanks Jon! Moving beyond buzzwords and popular trends is important. When you look closely at the millennial data we find we are more similar than different. Why set up roadblocks to more adoption? Leaders face enough challenge on a daily basis. Cheers Mr.

Great points, Meghan. Change happens all the time, and each generation plays a role in driving it and embracing change that matters most for better workplaces and communities. Thanks!
Be you. I love it when folks read guest posts of mine - without knowing I wrote them - and say, they know it's me. Well done, RB.
It's no chore either. Being your authentic, unique self is the quickest, easiest and most direct route to become uber successful on the blogging front. It's fun to do this, and it's quite cheap too; no need to force anything. If you're being you, this audience growth bit happens quite naturally, and traffic flows freely to you.
I'm a fan of recounting my travel stories, and linking these stories to my blogging tips. This is how I've retired to a life of island hopping through smart blogging and it's also how I've churned out 8 eBooks recently. The secret is to relax, chill, and to simply be you, writing without fearing criticism, or writing without imitating your neighbor.
You definitely have YOUR voice Sarah, and I dig it.

I can't get enough of the show. Sadly, I keep missing out on it. :( I'm looking into getting dish back so we can save money, get more channels (including ones for the kids), and record our shows so we can watch when our schedule allows. I hate missing my shows!

I am adding them manually. While I know they won't show up when the article is tweeted, having a photo attached helps others to see it and therefore it receives better interaction. IDK why some ppl's photos load and others do not. No one on Triberr ever answered my emails or the bonfire I started with the question, except for one random person who left information that was incorrect. It's a shame really, because photos are such a huge part of blogging and if this platform intends on helping bloggers, the photos of all feeds should show. Anyway, thanks so much for the compliments on this photo, and yeah, every time I see it, I want to make it again! haha I think I ended up eating most of it when I made it! haha

Every time I see this I get a craving for apple crisp! Looks sooo good! Are your pics showing up now, or are you still having to upload them?!

Thanks SO much for letting me know, Brian. I have my web guy on this now.
Have a great weekend!

Yep, I'm not seeing the graphics either Sue. I don't even see your header image or your "about" photo in the sidebar. I'm getting a "Forbidden" message when I try to open images in a new tab so it might be the permissions in your wp-content/uploads folders. Just guessing, it's not my expertise. ;)

The only problem I am having is that if you want to modify a tweet, it will not carry through to the new scheduler! Say you want to add an hashtag, or add something to the link... that will not show up so you have to manually make those changes for each tweet.

King Humphrey, retired, has his 80th birthday approaching. An event that he is not looking forward to. A milestone, of course, but he has found traveling to Torc, the capital of the Val-ley Kingdom of Torahn, a trial. He enjoys his life in the country, far enough from the center of power where his son Daniel now is King and rules.
Peaceful days sitting on the porch. Reading, writing, passing the time with his guardsmen, his wife, and the visits of his grand-son who has moved into a manor very near. Why go to Torc where he was to be honored, but would certainly have a fight with his son, the current king.
The two were just never going to see eye to eye, and Hum-phrey, at the age of 80, was no longer so concerned with all that happened to others. He was waiting for his audience with the Gods where all his friends had preceded him. It would be his time soon enough.
Yet, the kingdom wanted him to attend the celebrations, and there were to be many. So many feasts and fireworks he could not keep track, but the most important came at the end, when word was brought that the Trolls were attacking once more.
Now Humphrey would sit as regent for his son, who went off to fight the ancient enemy. Humphrey had ruled the kingdom before, so it should not have been overwhelming, but at eighty, even the little things could prove troublesome.

When a fortune purchases a title, love shall never flourish, for a heart that is bought, can never be won.
The Earl of Aftlake has struggled since coming into his inheritance. Terrible decisions by his father has left him with an income of only 100 pounds a year. For a Peer, living on such a sum is near impossible. Into his life comes the charming and beautiful Katherine Chandler. She has a fortune her father made in the India trade.
Together, a title and a fortune can be a thing that can achieve great things for all of England. Together the two can start a family and restore the Aftlake fortunes. Together they form an alliance.
But a partnership of this nature is not one of love. And terms of the partnership will allow both to one day seek a love that they both deserve for all that they do. But will Brian Forbes Pangentier find the loves he desires or the love he deserves?
And Katherine, now Countess Aftlake, will she learn to appreciate the difference between happiness and wealth? Can love and the admiration of the TON combine or are the two mutually exclusive?

Going to your point that authors don't send us editors manuscripts in the same shape they'd send an acquiring editor. For some authors, that's true. The really good ones -- and I'm proud to have the majority of these on my roster -- work to make sure their book is as good as it can be before it comes to me. I appreciate that. It lets us all work on and produce a better book.

Teaching a boor a lesson is one thing.
Winning all that the man owns is more than Lord Arthur Herrington expects. Especially when he finds that his winnings include the boor’s daughter!
The Duke of Northampshire spent fortunes in his youth. The reality of which his son, Arthur the Earl of Daventry, learns all too well when sent off to school with nothing in his pocket. Learning to fill that pocket leads him on a road to frugality and his becoming a sober man of Town. A sober but very much respected member of the Ton.
Lady Louisa Booth did not have much hope for her father, known in the country for his profligate ways. Yet when the man inherited her gallant uncle’s title and wealth, she hoped he would reform. Alas, that was not to be the case.
When she learned everything was lost, including her beloved home, she made it her purpose to ensure that Lord Arthur was not indifferent to her plight. An unmarried young woman cast adrift in society without a protector. A role that Arthur never thought to be cast as. A role he had little idea if he could rise to such occasion. Yet would Louisa find Arthur to be that one true benefactor? Would Arthur make this obligation something more? Would a game of chance lead to love?
