Just Wanted to SHOUT OUT to TWO PPer’s

Not to leave anyone else out or anything. And I apologize for showing up early, since as scorpie pointed out, my habit has become only posting once a week or so.

Crud. How did he manage to make it into this post. Being a Steeler’s fan, too. And wanting free breakfast. Wow. I must be slipping.


I am HERE today to say thank you (see, it says so right up there in the picture :) ) to two yummy Persona Paper Peeps who have joined the group of folks enjoying a spot at Your Top 8 on Informed Sharing.

Recently, JanetJenson provided a great post about growing hydroponically; sharing eight great reasons for doing so. Find her piece here and rest assured - even if your thumb is brown, your dirt won’t be. ;)

(mostly because you don’t need dirt...just in case I wasn’t clear there... emoticon :straight-face: )

And then I was treated to a fabulous list of eight by paigea about why she loves to mystery shop and how it helps her earn for doing so. I am in AWE of this practice. Truly. In case you missed the secrets of her shopping perks, get them here now .

And, if you’re so inclined, you may pop over to Your Top 8 and have a peek to see where Janet and paigea sit upon the page. They join BarbRad (though she’s already holding court on our second page ) who made her debut pretty soon after joining Persona Paper.

I am in LOVE with this part of Informed Sharing. My ridiculously (which means it is not at all ridiculous ) fabulous obsession with that silly, sexy number eight combined with writers who are willing to feed my need for all things to do with it?


Thank you both again. Sincerely. And thanks for doing it good (or well , as my grammar-nazi child is wont to say). You both had an idea for a post. You wrote it. Tagged me (or otherwise let me know). And I scooped it up and added it to the page in a timely fashion. YAY.

So, even though I may not be showcasing awesome Persona Paper people every single week, there are ways for you to get your name out there a little more. No pressure, just a little fun, if you feel like having it - at Your Top 8 :)

~ Cheers

Sandra Robinov (self)

I have to spend a tad more time on the front page. I've not gotten familiar with it since the changes. I do like the hover feature but haven't all gotten to know it really. I have to run to the bank, quick and then I'll take some time. I did like that popular column...maybe you could write up a list for MaeLou of things that are pleasing... Oh, I did see she posted something about changes. Let me peep that. We are in transition. Not a bad thing but somewhat messy while constructing... :)

It's good of you to feature so many of us in you blog. You did well to pick &JanetJensen and paigea . Their articles were very good.

WordChazer wrote on September 10, 2014, 12:58 PM

I think your idea is great too, SandraLynn . I need to spend more time here too, but there's just so much writing to do all over the web right now.

Scorpie wrote on September 10, 2014, 3:11 PM

I'll get pancakes just fer shuttin' up. :(

oldies909 wrote on September 10, 2014, 7:06 PM

very interesting article. my you have a lot to say.

SandraLynn wrote on September 11, 2014, 5:30 AM

LOL. That bad, then?

Perhaps we'd better get you some pancakes after all...

SandraLynn wrote on September 11, 2014, 5:31 AM

Awww shucks, Barb. Just please all of you keep doing what you're doing :) I enjoyed both pieces very much :)

SandraLynn wrote on September 11, 2014, 5:33 AM

Why, thank you :) And yes, there is a lot of writing that can be done all over. I'm trying to focus just on my website and here and the promotion of both, right now. There are so many distractions, it's hard... But getting distracted an be counter-productive unless you are super organized ;)

SandraLynn wrote on September 11, 2014, 5:35 AM

Thank you :) And goodness, I'm often much wordier than this ;) Sometimes less so. Depends upon the subject and my mood. Hoping always to inform :) AND that you'll enjoy the ride :)


Scorpie wrote on September 11, 2014, 8:54 AM

Blueberry, well-done plz.

SandraLynn wrote on September 11, 2014, 10:12 AM

Serving lunch now, my friend.

You're lucky I learned how to make pancakes all those years ago - there's a story; for someday... But well done? You're sorta getting particular with it. Geesh emoticon :straight-face:

*mutters off to go take a nap*

Lunch is cancelled.

Steelers & Ravens tonight. Ray Rice won't be playing, something about too much punch.

SandraLynn wrote on September 12, 2014, 5:24 AM

I heard it was spiked.


Ravens. The other Browns.

GO Pats emoticon :grin:

What game are we playing?

I confuse easily...

Scorpie wrote on September 12, 2014, 9:14 AM

The game is entitled what does the Steelers offense ...

SandraLynn wrote on September 13, 2014, 8:25 AM

I see.

What offends the Steelers?


Losing? All the time?

Am I playing this right?


JanetJenson wrote on September 25, 2014, 6:42 PM

SandraLynn I am grinning from ear to ear and little Poof the Cat is squirming with delight (as only a ghost cat can) over all the attention. I will be on a road trip for a few days and probably off-line, but will read all this again when I resurface. THANKS!

SandraLynn wrote on September 25, 2014, 6:44 PM

Oh enjoy :) And no worries, I think we are all caught up because your latest (Seasonings) is over there sitting proudly :) Safe Travels, my fab friend :)
