Pinaholics Anonymous Meeting #10

HAPPY FATHER'S DAY!

I just want to take a moment to thank my DAD for raising me with so much love and patience.  He is my hero.  (sorry hubby, my dad is my number one man, always has been, always will be)   Since I have moved to the USA and my parents are in Hong Kong, I miss them soooooooo much that it hurts.  

I hope you all have a wonderful Father's Day.  Treasure your time with your dad no matter good or bad, don't wait till it's too late.  




Today's Theme:  Denim {part 2}


I have posted some Denim Upcycling Ideas in PA meeting #8. Let's recap a little bit.

Today's post will be all about making old jeans into something wearable again! 


Hello my name is Mandy, and I am a Pinaholic! ^__^


If this is your first time here, let me briefly explain to you what this is all about.  This is a series I  started to share what I have pinned to my boards on Pinterest that I find interesting and inspiring.  I will feature pins that may be tutorials, tips, tricks, or ideas (but I am partial to sewing tutorials!)


So without further ado, let's begin our Tenth PA Meeting!

Blogging Tips: Google Services Shut-Down: GFC? Google Reader?



So I am sure many of you Blogger users have heard that Google is "retiring" Google Friend Connect.  

Well that's NOT true. 

I am going to explain this to you all in details in this post, hoping to make it easier for you to understand.

Blogging Tips: Are you a "noreply" blogger?



Do you feel like no one ever replies to your comments/questions?

You do not receive any emails from your blogger friends, do you?

Do you always have to go back to the same blog posts to check if others have responded to you?



If you answer to the above questions is YES, you might be a "noreply" blogger. And you might want to fix that.

Blogging Tips: Fake Referral Sites



If you are a blogger, you probably check your site stats, and if you do, you might have noticed some sites bringing you alot of traffic, so you clicked on them but it went to sites that do not contain a backlink to your site.  So you are wondering HOW do they refer your site?  

These are Referrer Spam.

Tornado break

Dear lovely readers:

Due to massive tornado/storm we had last night, we have lost power along with 60,000 other homes, so I regret to tell you all that I will be delaying my posting until further notice. I doubt ihop appreciates all of our town going there and using their wifi lol. Please do know that I have all of you in my heart and will post as soon as I can. In the mean time, do enjoy my other projects to ease the longing hehehehehe:


Updates:  As of June 2, 2013

We got our power back this afternoon! yay!!!

No damage to the house, just a bunch of trash and tree branches!

The food in the freezer did not even thaw (i was smart enough not to even open the freezer door)

My baby veggies (still at the seeding stage) survived!!! I left them outside and with all the craziness going on, I forgot to move them in the garage, but they are still intact and growing fast!!!

My parents's tree (the dead one) is still standing (thank God), only a few branches fell, onto the yard, not the house (thank God again)

We are thankful!!!!
