Halloween Countdown Clocks For Your Blog

Where To Get Halloween Countdown Clocks For Your BlogI was looking all over online for Halloween Countdown Clocks to put on my blogs. Finally I found one which I really like.  It is from Countdown Clocks dot com.

I like the fact that you can customize the countdown clock according to your liking. There are a few images you can choose from. I usually like those cute cartoon or clipart type not the scary kind since they are for my parenting blog.

You can further customize it by choosing the color, typing your own words and finally adding in the dates.  After you’re done, all you need to do is to copy the code and paste it in your blog post or sidebar whichever you prefer.

Apart from Halloween, you can get other Countdown clocks from this site including Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Easter or more personal dates like weddings, birthdays, pregnancy and graduation. Looks like I’m going to be bookmarking this one.

So here it is, my countdown clock for this Halloween 2014. Do you like it?

When it comes to earrings, I personally prefer drop and dangle earrings with a Halloween theme compared to the studded or clip on ones.

Drop and dangle earrings with hanging spiders, bats or jack-o-lanterns are fun additions to your outfit for Halloween gatherings or parties.

If you are not planning to wear a full fledged costume, you can still get in the Halloween mood by wearing the Halloween colors of black and orange and accessorize with drop and dangle Halloween earrings like this Petite Golden Creepy Swarovski Elements Crystal Rhinestone Spider Drop Earrings.

How To Take A Photo And Turn Your It Into A PDF Document Using A Free App

Thursday 9 October 2014 @ 11:53 am

I am an online writer. I also admin a parenting group on FB with over 6,700 members. This means that I frequently need to be able to get documents from page to web easily and quickly. That is why I was really happy to find a camera scanner app to help me take a photo and turn it into a pdf document that you can edit. There are many apps that can help you do this but I would like to talk about just one of them. That is the CamScanner photo to pdf scanner.

The CamScanner phone pdf creator or PDF document scanner is simply awesome. I was really impressed with it the first time I used it. This is what it will do or how you do it.

  1. First you take a photo of your document either with your iPhone, iPad or Android devices mobile or tablet.
  2. Next you click “Done” and the app will automatically adjust your document for you. By this, I mean it does not matter how you took your photo. Your document can be at an angle, you can have other things near it. The app is smart enough to find and highlight your document for you for cropping. I love that. If you are not happy with how it has highlighted the document, you can click and drag till you are satisfied before cropping.
  3. Then you click on “Next” and the app crops your document for you.
  4. After cropping, you can adjust the brightness or colors.
  5. Finally, you click “Save”.
  6. Your photo is now a pdf document which you can work on and send as a file to others. You can scribble on it with the pen tool, add text with the text tool box, add post it notes or search your document using OCR technology. OCR is Optical Character Recognition.

A very amazing and cool app indeed.  Here is where you can get your download links for iOS as well as Android devices for both mobile phone as well as tablet pc.





What Does It Mean When Someone Types F In A Facebook Group

Friday 3 October 2014 @ 8:48 am
F is For Follow

F is For Follow

Have you ever been in a Facebook discussion thread only to see a lot of Fs in it? So, what does it mean when someone types F in a Facebook group? It merely means they want to remain notified for further posts in a particular thread or they want to follow the discussion by members on a particular topic.

Some members type F or f or follow or following to be kept in the loop for the discussion. However, this practice is rather distracting and annoying to other members who are following the discussion especially if one is following the discussion on their mobiles. Imagine your phone beeping every few moments, you check your notification only to be greeted by a string of Fs.

Some suggest typing “Thank you” or “Thanks” but there really isn’t a need to do so, not when there is an easy way to turn notifications on or off for a discussion or for the group as a whole.

Here is how to get notified of discussion in a Facebook group setting.

Option 1. To turn on notification for the group as a whole

Edit Notifications

How To Edit Notifications In A Facebook Group Using Desktop PC

You can choose to be notified of “All Posts” or just “Friends’ Post”. Once a group is over 250  members notification is automatically set for “Friends’ Post” only, so you will have to edit your notification settings if you want to see more.

You can read the following from Facebook Help page for the steps.

How Do I Edit My Notification Settings For A Group (Using Desktop PC)

How Do I Edit My Notification Settings For A Group (Using iPhone or iPad App, Android App or smartphone or tablet via browser)

Option 2. To turn on notifications for a specific discussion or thread within a group

Turn On Notifications

How To Turn Notifications On Or Off For A Discussion Thread In A FB Group Using Desktop PC

Click on the arrow next to the discussion  and turn notification on. This will keep you in the loop for discussion on that particular thread. There is no need to type F, or f or follow or following or whatever in order to follow that thread. The above is what you see in a browser on a desktop pc.

Read the following Facebook Help for instructions. What Does It Mean To Turn Notifications On Or Off In A Group

The above images are from accessing FB from a desktop PC. Please read the following extra notes if you are using a mobile smartphone or tablet.

How To Turn On Notifications If You Are Accessing FB On A Mobile Or Smartphone Using The FB App

Since the screen is smaller, to do Option 1 i.e. to edit notification for the whole group, first click on the right arrow at the bottom of  the FB Group Cover, this takes you to the About page of the group. You will then be able to “Edit Notification Settings”.

The picture below shows you the steps required to edit notification for a FB group while using the FB  app on mobile phones and smartphones.

Option 2 to turn notification on or off for individual post is the same. Click on the little down arrow next to the post. you may have to click on the arrow beside the post twice, the first time takes you to the individual post if you are not already on it and the second time to turn notifications on or off.

The image below shows the location of the arrow (1). You may have to click on this two times. Then you will see the screen to Get or Stop Notifications.

How To Turn On Notifications If you Are Accessing FB On A Mobile Or Smartphone FromA Browser Like Safari

Option 1 is the same as described for editing notifications using FB mobile app. In option 2, you will have to click on the individual post first before  you can click on “Get Notifications” for that post. In order to go to the individual post, click on the timestamp or date right below the post. The picture below show the extra steps for getting notifications when you are viewing FB on a browser using your mobile phone. First you have to click on the Time as shown on arrow 1 to go to the individual post. Then, when you are on the individual post view, you can toggle between “Get Notifications” or “Stop Notifications” as shown on arrow 2.

Get Notifications From Individual Posts On Mobile via browser

Option 1 and 2 is the same as for Desktop PC.

Typing F may be an easy way for you to follow just one post instead of all posts but it is not very nice for the rest of the members following the same thread. So please follow the steps above. That, I think is a basic FB etiquette. Please be nice to other members when you are in a group.

Do you know that some FB  groups actually ban the use of Fs?
