Greatest summer reading for kids

Amelia Bedelia Goes Camping, by Peggy Parish

Ages 4-8
Amelia Bedelia has never been camping in the great outdoors before. She's trying her best to do exactly as she's told, but pitching a tent is not the same as throwing it into the bushes, and catching a fish with your bare hands isn't easy. As usual, the mixed-up housekeeper makes this camping trip one hugely entertaining adventure.

Great books for father's day

Sawn Off Tales by David Gaffney

Editorial review on Amazon.

David Gaffney's compact, surreal tales are filled with poignancy and wit. Each story goes off like a tiny depth charge in the mind, leaving you with the trace memory of some new urban myth - comic, absurd and disturbingly true.

Eric Clapton: The Autobiography by Eric Clapton

Customer's review:

This book is well written and well edited. You have the feeling that Eric Clapton is very honest with each page expressed within this book. Many emotional topics and sorrows of his life are touched upon, and that gives an overall view of his very long artistic musical career, as being one of the leading Blues, Pop, Classic Rock, artists for five decades. I thoroughly recommend this to anyone curious about Mr Clapton or the dfferent music scenes from the 1960's to present day.

High-Def Week

Dear A Blogger's Books readers,

This is a break in transmission from the usual informative blogging/writing articles to give you some benefit of a totally different kind! Don't worry, we'll be back to normal in a couple of days.

I've got wind of Amazon's High-Def Week, leading up to Father's Day. They're running silly deals on all kinds of 'man-presents'. These are geared specifically for the male taste. Everything high-definition is up for grabs, these include, HDTVs, Blu-ray movies and TV shows, video games, Blu-ray players, home theater systems, and accessories.  Check the event calendar each day for the specific daily deals which will be revealed at 12 a.m. PST.

My Guest-Post Research

I've been doing some reading on the net, trying to find ways to promote the blogs I've worked so very hard on building. I have hundreds of well-written, good sized articles which provide step-by-step help, and solid information to readers.
my popular blog
I don't think my blogs are doing the best they can for me. I think they should have a higher Google rating because many of my articles are now in the first page of Google searches.  Consequently, I've been trying to find out what else I can do - with my limited technical skill and time - to correct this. The term that pops up in almost every article I've read is 'guest posting' Guest posting is supposed to be the current big thing - the top rated activity to widen your readership and build solid back-links. So I did a few to prove its worth!

Dash Diet For High Blood Pressure

The Dash diet for high blood pressure has hit the web in a resounding crash, bang! Scientists have proved that  we can keep our blood pressure healthy by the way we live and certainly by the way we eat. (As if we didn't already know that). The following is just a brief summary of the mountain of information found on the Internet about the dash programme. I've also included some of the books (this is where A Blogger's Books comes in) below which will help explain in detail what the Dash diet craze is all about, and some which give you some fantastic Dash diet recipes.

What is the dash diet

First of all, 'Dash' means Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (high blood pressure).
Blood pressure is the force of blood against the artery wall. Generally, everyone’s blood pressure rises and falls at different times of the day. A person is said to have high blood pressure when it stays consistently high for a long period of time.
High blood pressure makes the heart work overtime. The pressure of the blood pushing against the artery walls can also weaken them and destroy (over time) the heart, brain and eyes, which is why hypertension can lead to strokes and blindness.

Documentaries: A New Promoting Book Hook?

I’m still thinking of something extraordinary with which I can advertise my books to the world. I’ve been told that there has to be an advertising hook – something to attract and hold the reader/viewer’s attention in order to make the sale.
I have to take a page out of Honda’s book (couldn’t resist the pun – sorry). They’ve come up with an original and brilliant way to promote their products and I wish I could have a piece of it! Of course, I can’t recreate anything on such a big scale, I’m still a struggling writer. I can’t even touch anything in their ball park, in all honesty. However, the principle of creativity struck me as something artists like ourselves can learn from.
Honda is not just sponsoring documentaries on Channel 4 (one of the UK and Ireland’s biggest TV channels), they’re going one step further, and for their campaigns, are making mini-documentaries themselves. These will feature four different, real-life customers who’re using Honda products in unique ways.

How Paypal Saved Me

Paypal saved me from a fraud who conned me. I was fortunate to have them fighting on my side. 

I had this crazy idea that I wanted to give my relationship help blog some more exposure on the Internet. There are hundreds of remarkable articles there which are helpful to women and families as a whole, and I wanted to give it a chance to be seen on a wider scale.

I found someone on a popular forum, who advertised his expertise in blog directory submission. I had just been paid for some blogging work and had money in my Pay Pal account. So I thought $15.00 was a worthy sacrifice to pay someone to do some directory submission work for me. We made the deal, and thankfully, the next and only sane thing I did in this entire transaction was to pay him through Pay Pal.

The first sign that something was wrong was when he sent me an attachment of the results (of the submissions) which was 'someone else's'. He sent me another email 5 minutes later to say it was a genuine mistake and that he would send me mine the next day. The following day he sent me an email saying my work was finished and was attached. It wasn't!
