Friday, March 12, 2010 - Today's Words of Inspiration, THE BIG 1,000 and Great Giveaways!

THE BIG 1,000!

Today, Ascending Butterfly reached a milestone we most certainly never expected to reach so far before  our one year 'blog-a-versary', we have reached the 1,000 follower mark on google friends connect! We now have 1,000 followers and over 1,100 email subscribers. And it's all thanks to each and every one of you! THANK YOU!

Lucky 1,000, is follower Jaclyn Rubly, she is also a blogger! Her blog, 'This Mama Says' can be found HERE -  Please stop by her blog and say Hi, tell her  Ascending Butterfly sent you; and while you are there check out her giveaways too! (Jaclyn, I sure hope you  are reading this, please reach out to me as soon as possible!)

This is quite a mile-stone! I fully intend to celebrate! It reminds me that very often we forget to celebrate our victories, our triumphs, our success.  Be it big or small, don't wait for someone else to celebrate your achievements. The external confirmations you want may not always come. It is sometimes up to you to 'toot your own horn'

This weekend, take a moment to savor and celebrate YOUR victories!

Use 'Today's Words of Inspiration' as a breathing meditation to still your mind, quiet your thoughts and bring in positive energy. As you inhale bring in only positive energy by saying in your mind, I breathe in positive energy (or you can say creative energy if that is what you wish to create more of) and as you exhale, Affirm out loud today 'I am  proud of all I have achieved!'

Spend some time each day enjoying focused breathing AND soul guided meditative visualization, in doing so, you can bring about amazing, profound and powerful changes in your life.

Visualize yourself manifesting something unique, guided by universal forces that emerge spontaneously from within your soul. Do this at least twice today and see how by taking a moment away from the hectic pace and breathing in positive energy and affirming what you wish to create, your thinking will become different.

Remember, attitude really does determine altitude.

NOTE: Readers have asked us to make entering the contests and giveaways, faster and easier. Your wish is our command! We have moved our 'Today's Butterfly - Featured Site(s) of the day, which is where we host our giveaways, to the upper right hand side of the page. It will be located here from now on to make entering the giveaways faster and easier. Keep the suggestions coming, remember we also have a NING group with real time chat, you can give us your comments and suggestions in REAL time, how cool is that?

NOTE 2: Twitter followers: please remember you must also follow Ascending Butterfly using Google friends connect on the upper right hand side of the page for your entries to be processed. And remember if your profile does not have an email and you don't leave your email in your entry, we will not accept your entry. Make sure your entry or your profile have your email address!

Just a helpful Reminder: How to Follow Using Google Friends Connect:

Please look to the upper right hand side, where the follower pictures are. (Note the number of followers before you start this process)

1) press the follow button - the google pop up wizard will open, this is not an ad and your pop up blocker will not block it

2) tick the option that reads 'follow this blog publicly' once that button is selected, hit follow again - it should now read 'you are now following'

3) if the follower count went up you know you did it succesfully, if your profile has a picture, that picture will be the first one on the left side. If your profile doesn't have one, it should still be searchable on the members list. (Remember, following a blog, does NOT subscribe you to receive emails, you have to subscribe separately to do that, you will not receive emails for following)

Are you getting the dreaded 'Your Entry Can't Be Processed' message when leaving an entry or comment? Before hitting enter, highlight your comment and COPY it. If you get that message after hitting enter and your comment is still there, just ignore the message and hit enter again, then you will get a screen with a captcha code, enter the captcha code, then submit and VOILA. If after you hit the submit button the first time, you get the dreaded message and the comment 'disappeared' no worries, that's why I asked you to copy it in the first step. Paste it back in and submit again. This has worked for me when comment boxes have glitched on me, and I hope it helps you too!
