One Size Doesn’t Fit All

After breakfast, I spent ten minutes basting my new belt. It is an elastic, “one-size-fits-all” belt that kept sliding down to my hips. I’ll wear it today and decide if I took it in enough, or if I should let it out a bit, and then I will make the permanent alteration.

I was under the impression that “one-size-fits-all” applied to blogs, also. I read on Pinterest to publish your post between 1:00 and 4:00 pm to increase your traffic.

Chris Snider, who teaches multimedia journalism at Drake University in Des Moines, recommended 9:00 pm in his article, “Get Facebook to show brand’s content” in the Des Moines Sunday Register on August 3rd.

I dutifully published Tuesday’s post at 9:00 pm. I felt bad because I saw people checking the blog throughout the day. I normally publish at 10:00 am. One size did not fit all, and I was unable to be on Facebook at that time to respond to comments there.

I am on Facebook at different times, my favorite being between 4:00 and 6:00 am. There are not many people on at that time. I try to touch base when I eat lunch and the 10:00 am publishing time works best for me.

We need to remember…it’s our belt…and we are the ones who are going to be wearing it.

I cleaned out the glove compartment in the van and found my old phone. We left it in there because I could dial 911 on it in an emergency. In the meantime, my husband upgraded his phone and put his old one in the van.

I sent my old phone to cellphonesforsoldiers.com. I still had a few mailing bags in my filing cabinet. If you have a cell phone to recycle, you can get a prepaid printed label at this site.

Every financial decision you make should be as personalized as choosing your cell phone.
