The Journey To God Monday

I am having surgery today and am very nervous. The last time I had surgery, I ended up in the hospital for nine months instead of three days. I swore I would never have surgery again. But I have no choice in the matter. My gallbladder needs to be removed. This makes this week’s Road to Me Monday even more important. I have put this day in God’s hands. There is no other way to experience less stress and anxiety. He will take care of me. He will protect me. I am sure of this. I am quite nervous. Please keep me in your prayers.

Viral Tag – How To and Bomb Diggity

When you have as many social media outlets and creative outlets as we do, there comes a time when scheduling your social media posts via each platform is so time-consuming, that you wonder if it is all worth it. That is where we are at this part of our journey. We have been comparing different social media scheduling tools and have find what works the best for us.

We are on a trail period with Viral Tag. We decided to write a combination of “How To” and “Why The Chrome Browser Extension Is The Bomb Diggity”.

We have been on Viral Tag for two weeks trying it out to see if the platform will fit our needs. Although we gathered a bunch of information about Viral Tag and it’s inner workings, today we are going to focus on how to use the Chrome browser extension and why we think it is the bomb diggity for social media posting.

I am a Pro member of Feedly which entitles me to many perks but my favorite is the Feedly Collections. You can check out my Feedly Collections about many topics that I am interested in including web design, autism inspiration, nonprofit sector information, art, travel, photography and design collections to name a few.

This reason for this screen shot is to show you just how much time I have spent on creating and curating the best blogs for my interests all in one place. I also use this as a way to brand myself online. Now, you will see how I was able to use Viral Tag’s Chrome extension to make the process of social sharing quicker saving me hours each week.

The 25 Man Rules

Seven years ago, I joined Facebook. One of the first things shared with me were “The Man Rules” by an old friend from high school. I found it so funny, I have kept a copy of it ever since. I thought the guys may get a kick out of the man rules and we, as women, will let you have your say; however, that doesn’t mean you are right, LOL!! I hope you enjoy the 25 Man Rules:

We always hear “the rules” from the female side. Now here are the rules from the male side.

Please note that they are all numbered 1. We did this ON PURPOSE!


The Man Rules


  1. Men are NOT mind readers.


  1. Learn to work the toilet seat. You’re a big girl. If it’s up, put it down. We need it up, you need it down. You don’t hear us complaining about you leaving it down.

  1. Sunday sports – It’s like the full moon or the changing or the tides. Let it be.


  1. Crying is blackmail.


  1. Ask for you what you want. Let us be clear on this one: Subtle hints do not work! Strong hints do not work! Obvious hints do not work! Just say it!




  1. Yes and No are perfectly acceptable answers to almost every question.


  1. Come to us with a problem only if you want help solving it. That’s what we do. Sympathy is what your girlfriends are for.


  1. Anything we said 6 months ago is inadmissible in an argument. In fact, all comments become null and void after 7 days.


  1. If you think you’re fat, you probably are. Don’t ask us.
