Dear Readers & Listeners: It's been a while since I've posted an Announcements, Updates, and Reminders article, but I've been working on several behind-the-blog projects and they are all finally coming together. It's time to share the news for this season! ~💗Luci
New Season, New Look: Here We Are is now on a responsive platform so it is fast and easy to search on any mobile device. In adapting Typepad's new Nimble theme, the design and layout of HWA got a much needed facelift. I hope it is better, brighter, and easier for you to find our articles, podcasts, and upcoming video series!
Just You & Me: Or as I like to call the new HWA video series - launching later this month - ONE BY ONE. Stay tuned for much more to come on this soon… For now, I'll tell you I am very excited about this series. I can't wait to share my tips, hints, and how-to's face to face (well, almost!) with you!
Can You Hear Me Now?: If you are on a desktop perusing HWA, you can now leave me a voicemail. Just click the blue floating bar on the right side of the blog. Go ahead… Ask me a question, tell me how you used a one of my tips, suggest a topic, or just say HI. I love hearing from you!
Shop 'Till You Drop: Well, don't do that… But please do use the Here We Are Amazon Store (the link is located in the header & footer for your convenience - see: ShopHWA). In the HWA aStore, you will find almost all of the items reviewed and mentioned on the blog; and a few more of my favorite personal and household products.
It's just like shopping directly on Amazon, your privacy is safe, your information is never shared; only Amazon sees it. NOTE: It does NOT cost you a penny more, but as an Amazon Associate, I do get a small commission on each item sold. The commission helps me test gadgets, recipes, and products to bring you better, brighter, easier information. PLUS, 10% of every commission received is donated to Canine Companions For Independence. On behalf of those amazing animals and myself, thank you in advance!
Talk Back To Me: The page view to download rate of both the Here We Are Talk Show and Chick Flick Chat podcast is amazing ➠➠ Thank you, thank you, thank you for listening! If you have an iTunes account, PLEASE give either OR both podcasts a review. You can click the preceding links in this paragraph or the graphics for the podcasts (in the center sidebar) and it will take you to their iTunes pages… Then sign into iTunes from the podcast page; it will bring you right there to leave a written review or click the stars - ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ - easy peasy. It only takes a minute - you get to talk back to me with your review - and it helps get the word out for more people to find the shows, thank you so much!
Top To Bottom: The sun is hotter than ever, and the UV rays work hard all day long to penetrate your skin. Besides sunscreen, be sure to wear a hat, (preferably with SPF protection) to defend from the damaging rays. The Joy of a Summer Hat is my solution to minimize Hat Head so you can reach for your hat without worry. And speaking of covering up, don't forget… When it's time to select a Beach Cover-Up: Show The Bust, Hide The Butt!
Safety First, Fun Second: As my dear grandfather would always say, "Better safe than sorry! If you get hurt, you can't have fun!!" He was right. Wishing you a wonderful, fun-filled summer of love, happiness, and sunshine! ~ Luci
