Welcome to another Friday news roundup and lets get to the news from inside as well as outside Adlanpro
Some great blog posts were created on the Adlandpro Blogging community…
How hard is it to write a blog post? Actually its very simple, but many people feel shy or uncomfortable or worse..they don’t know what to say! The fact is we all talk about things that have meaning to us every day, whether it be things that have happened in our lives or the new car they bought or a news event. Blogging is simply writing your thoughts about something and sharing it with people.
What are the benefits to blogging on the Adlandpro Blogging community?
You gain exposure to you and if you are in business that means more exposure to your business. You will also be given a helping hand – when your post is published it is shared on the different communities to help you be seen. So come on in and become a writer, you won’t be sorry!
This Friday news roundup, I thought it would great to highlight a member of Adlandpro
Barbara has been a member of Adlandpro since 2002 and she is one of those people that will almost tire you out when you read everything she is doing and I love her motto
Don’t ever give up on yourself or anyone else, no matter how long it takes. The virtue of patience is the key.
Among the many things that Barbara does ( apart from being the owner of AdKreator..where by the way over 4 million designs have been created WOW) she is very passionate about telling others about toxins and alternatives that can be used. She has a show every Wednesday at Traffic Exchange live at 2.30Pm pacific time..

Images! We all love to see them and we all love to share them, but did you know that your images are searchable from the time you upload them to your computer?
Here is a very short tutorial from Google support on image publishing guidelines that I think you will find very useful
Not so good:<img src="puppy.jpg" alt=""/>
Better:<img src="puppy.jpg" alt="puppy"/>
Best:<img src="puppy.jpg" alt="Dalmatian puppy playing fetch">
To be avoided

P.S. Did you notice that when you upload any image you need to name it? Always remember to name your file! If you are using a few words to name that file be sure to use the (_)in between the words when typing in the name!
If you are wanting to know more about images and I hope you do, then this post by Ana Hoffman is a must read! Free Blog Post Images: Where to Find Them, How to Use Them is one of those posts that will guide you on learning from her mistakes so that you wont have to!
One of the reasons I am talking to you about images by the way is because of something I noticed David Rowland posting on the wall concerning how an artist found out that her original work ( illustrations of animals) had been ripped off. You can read about this story on Alleged Copyright Theft Goes Viral. The point to all of this is it doesn’t matter if you are a big company or a self publishing blogger, it is very important to know the law and to obey the rules!
Well it looks like the long and painful shutdown of the US government is over,but I am sure the discussion will not stop for a very long time; Facebook is allowing kids (13-17) to publicly post on their site and Twitter is allowing people to DM others even if they are not following the person, life sure is interesting!
As always there is so many things going on in the world and not all of it positive so I think it would be a good idea to end this Friday News roundup with something I feel we are all needing – community!
A sense of a goose
Next Autumn, when you see geese heading south for the winter, flying in a “V” formation, you might consider what science has discovered as to why they fly that way. As each bird flaps its wings, it creates an uplift for the bird immediately following. By flying in a “V” formation, the whole flock adds at least 71 percent greater flying range than if each bird flew on its own.
People who share a common direction and sense of community can get where they are going more quickly and easily, because they are travelling on the thrust of one another.
When a goose falls out of formation, it suddenly feels the drag and resistance of trying to go it alone and quickly gets back into formation to take advantage of the lifting power of the bird in front.
If we have the sense of a goose, we will stay in formation with those people who are heading the same way we are.
When the head goose gets tired, it rotates back in the wing and another goose flies point.
It is sensible to take turns doing demanding jobs, whether with people or with geese flying south.
Geese honk from behind to encourage those up front to keep up their speed.
What message do we give when we honk from behind?
Finally – and this is important – when a goose gets sick or is wounded by gunshot, and falls out of the formation, two other geese fall out with that goose and follow it down to lend help and protection. They stay with the fallen goose until it is able to fly or until it dies; and only then do they launch out on their own, or with another formation to catch up with their own group.
If we have the sense of a goose, we will stand by each other like that.
A shout out to some fantastic Adlandpro Community members
You guys ROCK!
