One of My Blog Posts is now a PowerPoint Presentation on Slideshare!

THIS IS A ‘TRUE TALES TUESDAYS’ POST

[slideshare id=26929910&sc=no]

At the beginning of August 2013, I wrote an article that explained the Top 10 Tips For Making A Good Impression.

At the beginning of October 2013, I found out that a teacher added a link to my site for his students to refer to. When I was notified of this backlink, I decided to send him a thank-you note (email). He responded to me, and told me that “it was the most helpful site I found for my students”.

Talk about a nice compliment!  I was honoured to be chosen!

Since the blogging and marketing “pros” advise turning posts into podcasts, videos, presentations, etc, I decided to turn the aforementioned post into a Slideshare presentation using my newly purchased PowerPoint program. I really enjoyed creating this. For a non-techie like myself, I feel a great sense of accomplishment!

Of course, the technology has already been created for me, and all I have to do is a few simple things with the click of my mouse. Easy-peasy stuff — anyone can do this! No wonder Slideshare is becoming so popular!

As always, I’d love it if you share this AND/OR left me a comment. You know how much I love comments! 🙂

Adding images to your sidebar is not as easy as 1, 2. 3. But it can be!

Please read this post first, then enlarge your screen and watch the video. (Instructions are given on how to make your screen bigger, too, so don’t worry!)

The above screenshot shows you the basics, but not how to adjust the size. For that, you’ll have to watch the video!

The video will tell you how to add images to your sidebar. Images include the awards that new bloggers receive, and so I am posting this for them! Lately, many people have been clicking on my award posts, mainly for The Liebster Award (it is currently number one in the search engines!), and since these bloggers are newbies (like I was, months ago!), I decided to answer a question one blogger had (ironically, the person who tagged me as IT) about how to add images to your sidebar.

Adding them is not that difficult, but requires a few steps. I explain these in this the video below, and show you how to do it at the same time. Unfortunately, Read More

Do you need to Get Busy Living?

In May, I happened to take a step that has turned my life around. Actually, I have taken several steps this year (2013), which have improved the quality of my life. I’ve learned a lot this year, thanks to Danny Iny, and I have accomplished a lot, too, especially in the last few months. I have to thank my son, a few friends, and myself, for most of them. Now, I also have to thank Benny Hsu (pronounced “shoe”, not “sue”). 🙂

This is...guess who? Yup, it's Benny Hsu!

The Largest Number In The World: Can You Count This High?

Ever see the commercial that asks children “What’s the largest number in the world?” The first response is “infinity“, the second is “infinity plus one” and the last response is “infinity times infinity”. As a math teacher, this makes me laugh. Wait until these kids get to high school. Their response will probably be “infinity to the power of infinity”!
