Sharing is Caring

blogger tips, pic monkey art,

Good morning all!

Have you noticed my " martini and hearts " curser?  I know a couple of you have and have asked about it.
Well I found a great site - tons and tons of choices - I picked something that had hearts on
them for the month of February for Valentine's on the below to choose one for
Totally Free Cursors

And in case anyone is looking for a customized signature - the site I use is great for that too!
Free Personal Signatures - I keep the code on my desk top for easy access when signing off.  Just remember you have to switch to HTML to insert the code.

Have you found a graphic you want to use but need a larger version?  This site allows you to download
your image and enlarge it - a great feature to know about!
Block Posters

Are you curious about how many times a photo from your blog has been pinned?
You can find out the exact number here

To incorporate the trademark symbol ™ - simply press ALT and 0153 at the same time...................

And if you're looking for an alternative site to Pic Monkey - there's also this one - I use a mix of both of them sometimes!

When you sign up for Google Plus - they do not let you know that you become a no reply blogger -

Due to a large amount of spam ( that I'm tired of going back to posts and deleting ) I'll be using comment moderation from now on !!!
Can I beat these spammers at their own game? Probably not - but I'm going
to try my damnedest !!!
