Today’s Cool Links

It’s Saturday and time to share some of the cool links I’ve discovered this week, including the Singularity and found friends, as well as easy lunch packing and one book marketing tip.

I hope you enjoy today’s links.

The Singularity is here

Boston Dynamics posted a video of its SpotMini quadruped robot extending an arm out of its head to turn a handle.

It’s only a matter of time before they take over the world.

Mason Jar Snack Packs

If you pack a lunch for yourself or anyone else in your household, here’s a handy tip to keep the wet stuff separated from the dry. I never would have thought of using the jar-within-a-jar they recommend. So clever!

How to sell your books internationally and make more money (ching $$ ching)

It's Saturday and time to share some of the cool links I've discovered this week, including the Singularity and found friends

Are you making as much money as you can on the sale of your book(s)? Are you optimizing the market? Chances are you’re not selling to the international market.

This article tells you why you should be cashing in on these markets. Why not do all you can to make money (with little effort). The overseas market has many, many more readers than the U.S.

Once you’ve set up your books on Amazon international markets, use some of Julia Kent’s suggestions on how to market in those markets (am I using the word market too many times?)

Woman adopts dog then realizes it’s her childhood pet

Nicole Renae loved her childhood dog, Chloe, but she had to give her up when her father started working at home (distraction free environment).

Years later, grown, married, and with a baby, she decided to get another pet. While browsing through Facebook, she saw an ad for an elderly dog that looked very familiar.

You guessed it! Her adopted new pet is the same as her old pet. After an eight year separation, Nicole was reunited with Chloe.

Please share these links with your friends and family using the icons on the left. We can all use a chuckle about the Singularity and found friends, or spread the lunch packing tip with moms and dads everywhere.

Blessings,

Cheryl

Today's blog highlights miniature dioramas and gravity defying sculptures from two talented artists as well as some valuable blogging and writing advice.

Miniature dioramas and gravity defying sculptures

Last week’s post only focused on writing tips and advice. I still have a few of those to share, but I also found some non-writing links featuring miniature dioramas and gravity defying sculptures.

Minature dioramas

Tatsuya Tanaka is a Japanese artist who concentrates on making miniature dioramas. Like this one:

How cool are they? He must have incredible patience to work with such small components. Does he make them by hand or is there a online Miniature-Figures store? Wow.

Gravity defying art

Speaking of talent, this blog highlights sculptures that defy gravity.

P.T. Barnum would have loved this elephant balancing on its trunk. Who has the imagination to conceive these ideas then figure out how to accomplish them?

A Quilt for Every Day

If you didn’t know, beside writing, one of my talents is quilting. I love the interplay of color and design as much as the satisfaction of making a treasure that will be handed down for generations. I’m always looking for the next quilt pattern. Yes, I do live in Arizona where the summer night temperatures might not go below one hundred degrees. Hey, we got down to 39 in December!

When these patterns popped into my Pinterest feed, I knew I had to share them.

More writing advice?

Do you want to learn more about writing? I’ve been writing for nineteen years (gulp!) and never get tired of learning new things. Edie Melson passes on nineteen things to remember when the writing gets tough (and it does). Read about them here.

It’s hard to choose a favorite because they’re all relevant, but I think #15 qualifies the most for me:

  1. We live in one of the best times ever to be a writer.It’s easy to look at all the changes and general chaos as nothing but negative. The truth is though, we can reach more people through our words than ever before. And anyone who wants to reach the world through words needs a writer to help them.

17 things to do every blog post before and after hitting “Publish”

17? Really? Yes, really.

Do you want more hits on your blog posts? More comments? More sales? Melyssa Griffin outlines the things you should do to every blog post before and after you hit publish.

I did a quick check and realize I follow eight of her suggestions on a regular basis, four some of the time, and five not at all. So that’s a C-?

We can all improve our social media grade, and I intend to implement her suggestions to improve what I’m offering to my readers.

I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s links of miniature dioramas and gravity defying sculptures as well as the blogging and writing advice. The internet is such a treasure.

What cool or interesting links did you find lately?
