SuperPost Sunday – Weekly Roundup #18

paperboy SuperPost Sunday   Weekly Roundup #18Hello My Lovelies,

I hope you’re all enjoying your Sunday.

I want to apologize for publishing today’s SuperPost a little later than usual icon sad SuperPost Sunday   Weekly Roundup #18 . I was actually stuck driving in the fog at 2 miles an hour under a small snow storm and didn’t make it back home until a little while ago. Then I had to whip up this nice little intro for ya icon wink SuperPost Sunday   Weekly Roundup #18 .

That’s it! That’s my no bullshit excuse.

Live Your Love Doesn’t Love THIS!

So, I don’t know if you guys heard or not, but my very cool bloggapal Brankica Underwood, who I’ve dubbed the “BloggingTip Meister” (amongst other nicknames), has created quite the stir with her review of MarketMeSuite.

Now, I’ve never used the product and therefore do NOT have a personal opinion on it. I’ve heard some great things from some top notch bloggers who use it. But like all things – we can never know what we like and works for us, until we try it for ourselves.

Unfortunately, Brankica had a shitty experience with her purchase and was honest enough to share her personal views (which she is entitled to) about MMS and how it fell awfully short of her expectations.

If you use this product, make sure to let Brankica know whether you like it or not. Either way, don’t miss out on the plethora of controversial comments.

The CEO of MMS had quite a few things to say about the poor review but alas…diplomacy was not her preferred style of speech.

The Tao of Twitter

The brilliant thought leader and distinguished gentleman, Mark Schaefer, has just published his latest book, “The Tao of Twitter. Now I haven’t had the chance to read it yet, (although I will very soon) but if you know Mark and his work – both as a blogger and Marketing professional – then you know that this book will be nothing short of excellent.

Oh, and if you don’t know Mark, then you’ve seriously been missing out. But it’s never too late icon wink SuperPost Sunday   Weekly Roundup #18 .

If you’re struggling with how to use Twitter properly or simply looking to up your game, then I strongly suggest you buy this very useful, practical and affordable book. As Mark himself says, “The Tao of Twitter” is “a unified system to approach Twitter for optimal personal and business benefits.”

By the looks of it, just about any one can benefit from this book; businesses, marketing pros, consultants, professors, agency leaders, college students and Social Media aficionados.

Please support my friend Mark with his latest achievement by stopping by to congratulate him and purchasing a copy of his book. You’d be doing yourself a favor.

I can’t wait till my copy arrives icon biggrin SuperPost Sunday   Weekly Roundup #18 !

Alright, I’ve kept you waiting long enough!

Time for Some Goodies…

“Without further ado and blah blah”, here are this Sunday’s rockin’ SuperPosts on all things Social Media, Blogging Tips, SEO, Internet Marketing, Traffic Building, Online Money Making Tools and more.

Social Media

A few days ago I was at work crafting a high level social strategy that will go beyond the Flightster blog and really enable us to take advantage of social media in a way that really allows us to understand our customers…

Facebook, my Facebook, wherefore art thou, Facebook? With Facebook having introduced quite a few changes to business pages, most of us are scratching our heads as to how to make the best use of them…

Many bloggers have started to veer away from the ad-based monetization model. Good choice, unless you’re looking for a very steep uphill battle for enough eyeballs to even just pay your cell phone bill…

Blogging Tips

Two years ago I sat on this exact black, office chair. I was doing something I no longer liked, and I dreaded every hour of it. I was playing online poker, and I craved to do something else. I had the desire to write, but I didn’t believe…

I’ve been writing, on and off, since my early teens – but it’s only in the last three years that I’ve really taken my writing seriously. It’s made a dramatic difference. I write far, far more. I write better. I finish things – something which…

Headlines are the most important attribute any article can have. I don’t care how well optimized that post is, or how long tail the targeted keywords are – if your title sucks, then you are doomed from the offset…

WordPress in itself is a decent system but it can be made into a rock solid blogging beast. Adding plugins can make WordPress into the Swiss Army Knife of blogging: just pull out whatever functionality you need for your specific…

I love ebooks. I love reading them. I love writing them. I love collecting them. Heck, I even lovethinking about writing them. But I think some bloggers are a little bit afraid of writing ebooks, and most bloggers don’t bother…

Let me tell you a little secret about blogging: It’s very formulaic. It’s more craft than art. If you can internalize what’s required to write a solid blog post, you’ll beat out the competition in the same way someone with a black belt…

For me, punctuation and its accompanying list of rules always stood out as the frontrunner for boring grammatical topics when I was in high school. That was until a college professor introduced me to Lynne Truss and her little book…

Internet Marketing

I have been in discussions with several people about Niche Market websites. In the past I have always regarded a Niche site as someone’s Primary Authority site, probably because back in the olden days we all spent a lot of time…

Personal Branding

I have many role models – awesome people who use their creativity to impact the world awesomely. They come from the most diverse backgrounds: fashion designers, bloggers, filmmakers and comic book artists…

The weekend is upon us folks and I wanted to discuss a topic we can all relate to and one that has been receiving more and more attention recently: Avatars.  Always up for a good conversationand debate, I can’t wait to hear…

These days we live and die online. I have been thinking about my social presence and what it is like for a person who works overseas to manage their social presence.  Every person goes about it differently, you can have…

Online Money Making Tools

Working a 9-5 job may be the dream of some people. Maybe you can handle having a boss that tells you what to do, when to do it, and how it has to be done. If that doesn’t bother you just a little bit, then go ahead and click the red…

The biggest question that people have when reading any blog or article that talks about making money in any way, shape, or form is, “does it work?” And that’s a great question, one you should ask at regular intervals both of the sites…

MishMash

I’ve been online long enough to observe 2 groups of people who are doing some form of business online. 1. those who are struggling and 2. those who are going from success to success. What’s the difference between the two…

You know those scam emails that you get? The kind that “offer you a million dollars if you send some money to this African prince” or “Your account has been breached. Please access through information below” or “Click…

Tell me if this sounds familiar: In the bottom right drawer of your desk, you have the beginnings of your novel. Maybe it’s in a box in your closet. Or tucked away somewhere on your hard drive. Yeah. Novels are like old bones a dog…

Call it The Egyptian Revolution,  The eRovolution, iRevolution or Revolution 2.0. In any case, I believe we are watching a revolution that was not only written in Egyptian history, but world history. It will be a case study…

One of the biggest questions most businesses have about social media is what you should do when someone posts something negative about you. This could be a tweet, a Facebook status update, a mention in a LinkedIn group…

Now that I’ve lured you over here thinking this post is going to be another romantic saga  - it is Valentine’s Day after all- about how I’ve toiled in my endeavors to find true, passionate, everlasting LOVE, I’m sorry to disappoint…

When you have major changes going on in your life, or you’re just frustrated about where you are, it’s easy to get trapped in a cycle of depression, bad moods and frustration.  I know, I’ve been there…

Times have changed. You can’t just send traffic to a sales page and expect people to buy if they’ve never heard of you before; relationships are critical now-a-days. Oh, and let’s not forget about the customer experience…

I can’t believe it’s really been an entire year since I first took over this blog. At the same time it seems so long ago and yet it also feels like it was just yesterday.  I don’t exactly understand how that’s possible and yet it is…

One of the hardest things we do is to make the choice not to work with everyone who wants to hire us. That’s easier read than done. In some cases, we say no to protect ourselves. Those of us building our young reputations…

    Hey Ingrid – Thanks for this. I’ve got to go read Brankica’s post now. I don’t use my RSS reader anymore; I almost rely solely on these weeklies to keep my up-to-speed. lol I didn’t like MarketMeSuite either, so I am extra curious!

    • http://nittygriddy.com/ Ingrid Abboud

      Hey Tia,
      I hope you enjoyed Brankica’s post :) . I’ve never used MMS so I couldn’t give you an opinion on it.
      There are some other really great reads in here so I hope you’ll find a little time to get to a few.

      Thanks for stopping by Tia. It’s great to see you here as always.
      Have a super week.

      Cheers

    Hi Ingrid,

    I would have shown up here sooner to thank you for including me in your fantabulous list.

    But my dog ate my homework, which would sound pathetic except that he was abducted my aliens.

    And lest you think I’m just grasping at anything to save myself, Fido and I ended up on some Discovery channel thing about alien dog abductions.

    OK. You caught me. As any good marketer, I just wanted to be higher up on your Comment list ;-)

    BTW, I’m looking forward to buying you a round at the “19th” hole :-)

    Rick

    • http://nittygriddy.com/ Ingrid Abboud

      Dammit! Everybody here has a better excuse than I did LOL ;) . I should have asked you guys for ideas and simply lied – at least it would have been funnier and people wouldn’t think that I was stuck in a Siberian snowstorm or something hehe.

      Really Rick? The Aliens abducted Fido? As in Fido Dido? Pfff…I’d think they would have gone for Scoobidoo first – don’t ya think? lol

      Okay, so I suck at Golf – I’ve actually never really played properly. But I always thought that 18 holes was the max. Are you trying to gyp me out of a drink?! Sheesh! ;)

      Oh, and you’re most welcome and yes – this is a fantabulous list – isn’t it? :)

      Have a great week Rick.
      Ciao

        The 19th Hole is otherwise affectionately known as the Clubhouse ;-)

        And if Scooby was my dog, I wouldn’t be screwing around with making affiliate sites for a living!

        Take care :-)

        • http://nittygriddy.com/ Ingrid Abboud

          Ha! I learned something new :) . Thank you. I’ll pretend I knew that all along though and I can’t wait to use it in a conversation next time.

          I know what you mean! Now, I want Scooby as my dog hehe.

  • http://www.WaxingUnLyrical.com Shonali Burke

    Thanks so much for including my post, Griddy! Guess what my excuse for being late to comment is? I slipped & fell in the snow/ice today. Good thing I have a well-padded derriere. :p So much here to chew on, I think I have to save your post (actually, several) for a bit later when I know I won’t be interrupted…

    • http://nittygriddy.com/ Ingrid Abboud

      Hey Shonali,

      LOL about the well-padded derriere ;) . Don’t we all my dear?!
      But I hope you’re okay and that you didn’t hurt yourself. Those falls tend to hurt especially if it’s more ice and less snow :( .

      I thought your post was extremely helpful – thanks for sharing it!

      I hope you’ll like the selection this week. As always – I’ve put some effort into it to make sure and provide you guys with some good stuff!

      Happy Tuesday to ya Shonali :) . Always great to see you here sharing your thoughts.

      Cheers

    awesome line up. Im glad you opened with Brankica’s post…I never used MMS either but it looks lumped together from the get go…anyways…as always, great stuff :-)

    • http://nittygriddy.com/ Ingrid Abboud

      Hola Mr. Dogan,
      How’s your week been treating you so far?

      Glad you like this week’s picks. I usually try and present a “first string” line up for you guys :) .

      I’ve never used MMS either but I enjoyed reading Brankica’s honesty (and her personal experience) as well as the myriad of opinions that followed.

      Always awesome to see you here Dino. Thanks for coming over.
      Have a good week.

      Cheers

    Uggh… so reading Alex’s excuse, I really feel like mine is so mediocre, it’s not even worth sharing — oh but share it, I will… because it’s quite epic. So, I went on a group run yesterday, and by the time we had reached the end of the run, we realized that we couldn’t account for 1 person. So, in true heroic fashion, I volunteered to run the course in reverse to search for our stranded comrade. Unfortunately, I failed to obtain a description of said brother in ‘legs’ and promptly ran right passed him without so much as a nod of acknowledgement. 30 minutes later, I found myself without having found “Tommy”, 5 miles away from our running group’s rendezvous point and without a phone. So, like any enterprising 25 year old, I found a phone to use in order to call a ride. It just so happens that phone was in a bar… and as they say, the rest is history.

    So, here I am today to laud you, once again, on a job well done. I’ve read numerous posts already, but I’m sure there are many more gems included here to be read. Thanks for putting together such a wonderful list, but most importantly, thanks for getting through the snowstorm and fog safely without my assistance. Brankica asked me to rescue you, but alas, I was detained by my adventure described above.

    Happy Monday Ms. Griddypants. Hope you have an amazing day.

    PS – thanks so much for including me. It never fails to put a huge smile on my face. Truly full of gratitude for you my dear.

    • http://nittygriddy.com/ Ingrid Abboud

      Alright Jimbo – between your and Alex’s excuse – mine officially sucks! Why couldn’t you guys have shared those beforehand so I could have cheated and used them in my intro? LOL

      Had I done what you did – I would be out for another month Ha! But very heroic of you, I must say.
      It’s always great when you stop by – you always have something awesome to share – and this time is no different.

      As for getting through the snowstorm – believe me, it was nothing. It was a small one – but driving in it downhill is a bit tricky at first. But again – this is nothing compared to the one’s we use to get years ago.

      And LOL to the thought of coming to my rescue ;) .

      Hope you like the other gems on here – as usual – they’re all worth the read.
      As for including your post in here – well it deserves to be! It was my pleasure and was a wonderful read :) .

      Happy Tuesday Jamey. Enjoy the week ahead.

      Cheers

    So sorry I am late getting here to comment.
    I was stuck in traffic doing 2 miles an hour down the corridor behind an 18 month old on a disney princess push car and a 3 year old on a ride on tractor yelling obscenities at the tickle my elmo doll clearly causing the hold up…

    Then of course I had to recall the incident (a long and arduous journey of emotional hurt) and transcribe it here for you.

    That’s no BS either. (ummm? )

    THanks so much for the link love (see how quick I just snapped back to awesomecommentdude!)**

    I am continually impressed by the plethora of links you share and the awesome content you continually seem to find. I am definitely looking forward to reading the MMS review and ensuing shitfight – ooh that should be sweet.

    Thanks again, always a pleasure to stop by and see some love.

    **awesomecommentdude is in no way affiliated with insertcoolhotdudesname.

    • http://nittygriddy.com/ Ingrid Abboud

      Hahahaha
      I don’t know how you do it Alex, but you continuously have me LMAO whenever you stop by here to share those awesome thoughts of yours ;) !

      But now I’m pissed that your excuse is much better and wayyyy more entertaining than mine. I’m actually thinking of copy/pasting it here and using it as my own – but then it would be a BS one for me lol ;) .

      Brankica’s review is definitely interesting although I have not tired the product yet and therefore couldn’t give you my own feedback. But what’s even more interesting are the comments she received – so make sure to go through those.

      I’m glad you like the roundup of links that I share here – I do so because I think they’re worth reading and I hope that my readers will find them useful in some way.

      Also – it’s good you cleared up the fact that @awesomecommentdude and @insertcooldudesnamehere are not affiliated cause I totally thought they were. Pheww…hehehe

      Now I can promote you without misleading my readers and telling them that you’re in fact a 9 year old girl hahaha. I’m kidding!

      Thanks for being such a wonderful all-round person Alex. I’m aiming at getting Lebanon as your main audience on your Alexa profile hehe. But I think you already have more viewers than we have inhabitants here lol.

      Have a super week. I’m waiting for your next post!!! :)
      Cheers

    I can only imagine that what they call a “snow storm” in the Middle East is what we Canadians call “nothing.” I’m a bit surprised that the temperatures are even cold enough for snow in that region, even in the mountains.

    Lots of reading material to get through here. I wish someone could bundle up all these links, throw them into a PDF, so I could load it onto my Kindle to read on the go. But that would be a lot of work.

    Great selection, as always, and plenty of links I haven’t seen yet. Off to do some reading now.

    • http://nittygriddy.com/ Ingrid Abboud

      HI James,

      Yes, I’m very familiar with the weather you have in Canada – especially the Montreal area.

      We are far from having the same low temperatures as you but you’d be surprised at how much snow we actually get in Lebanon. In the meters! Although I think global warming is really kickin’ in because we get less and less meters every year. But still superb powder to ski on.

      But as I said this past one was rather small. But…when you’re up at 2500 meters on a mountain – going back down takes a little more time than if you were to simply drive that same distance on flat land. Because here – it is everything but flat! So yes, surprises never cease ;) .

      OH wow – what a good idea that would be if we could bundle all these up int a PDF :) .

      Glad you liked this selection – as usual – they’re all great reads that I enjoyed and that I think you might too.

      Thanks for coming by James. Have a great week.
      Cheers

  • http://www.thesaleslion.com/ Marcus Sheridan,The Sales Lion

    Ingrid, I’m feeling our tastes for other great reads are cut from the same cloth, because if I had of made a list for this week, I would have included a bunch that you mentioned..(although I think I’d leave myself out as that may come across as just slightly self-serving ;-) )

    But thanks for mention, glad you made it back safely, and have a tremendous week around the web :)

    Marcus

    • http://nittygriddy.com/ Ingrid Abboud

      Hey Marcus,

      Well, I’m very happy to hear that you and I share a similar taste when it comes to this immense blogosphere of ours :) . I’m sure I missed a ton though.

      Hey there’s nothing wrong with including yourself in your own roundup once in a while. I’ve done it before for some of my guest posts :) . If you like and are proud of what you wrote then heck…lol ;)

      Loved your post – obviously – and it’s my pleasure to include it in here with some other really good ones.

      Hope you enjoy the rest that you haven’t read already.

      Wishing you a wonderful week. Thanks a lot for dropping by today. I always appreciate it.

      Cheers

    Hi Ingrid

    Better late than never I guess! Here at last. Had trouble getting on the internet this morning….yikes and there is definitely NO snow or rain in Perth lol Just very warm weather. I agree about Brankica’s post. She wrote an honest review and was very gracious in her replies to the company that didn’t act in a professional manner on her blog. Kudos to her.

    Looks like some interesting reading so will still not get any work done till this arvo as now need to go check some out. Another great roundup with such variety. Thanks Ingrid. Appreciated.

    Patricia Perth Australia

    • http://nittygriddy.com/ Ingrid Abboud

      Hey Patricia,

      You’re never late my dear – it’s a pleasure to see you here regardless of when you drop by :) .
      We got tons of rain here but the snow is up in the mountains – and I love it. It’s just driving downhill in it that can be a bit tricky but loads of fun.

      Brankica was honest and only gave her personal opinion on the product she tried. I guess every one is entitled to that. Some things may be awesome and work for you but they may not work as well for others. To each his own and I guess it’s a matter of trying stuff ourselves to see whether we like them or not. I haven’t tried MMS so I really cannot judge it. I can simply learn a bit more about it through people’s reviews – the good and the bad.

      I hear you about the internet – I often encounter problems with mine but the one we have here sucks compared to the rest of the world. It’s really slow.

      Hope you enjoy the selection.
      Have a great week.

      Cheers Lavender Lady

    Hi Griddy, ya sure fog and a snowstorm in Beirut! Pleeeasssse ;-)

    Seriously, thanks ever so much for the shout, by the way did you see the US government is now contracting companies to create fake social media people? No joke read the update at bottom of post, it came out from a leaked Email. Spooky?

    I am off to get Mark’s book on Twitter, I am still trying to figure out that beast.
    As usual you have some great posts, (I would love to know how you monitor all those sites) and delivered it to us.

    I read Higbee’s post week, I went out hunting for him when you mentioned him in your last post about RTs and Comments. Cool dude, and he does get crazy number of comments, although the way you are going these days I am sure you will beat him before the spring.

    Yala enjoy your ‘foggy’ Beirut Sunday evening and thank you for this amazing Roundup.

    • http://nittygriddy.com/ Ingrid Abboud

      Ahlan John :)

      Actually I was up in the mountains in Faraya. I’m bummed though cause the snow storm turned to pouring rain and hail now – the I’m hoping the snow won’t get all mushy.

      No need to thank me – you had a great post there and an excellent topic which we all think about at some point or another. Wow – are you serious? I had no idea! I’m gonna’ go back and check that out – thanks for the update.

      Yay I’m glad you’re gonna get Mark’s book. I can’t wait to get receive mine and start reading it :) . Knowing Mark – I have no doubt that it will be well-written and loaded with useful advice for novices and pros of all kinds.

      I call Tristan Higbee “the human R2D2 of blogging”. He’s incredible the way he whips out posts left and right – and they’re always useful and providing us with some great ideas or tips.

      Thanks for the vote of confidence my friend :) .
      No fog in Beirut tonight – just rain – but lovin’ it anyways.

      Enjoy your Sunday. Had I been in Paris today – I would have been in Le Marais :) . It’s the one place that’s open and agreeable on Sunday’s.

      Cheers

    Brankica is a good friend! Sending a rescue team for you. WOW!

    As usual, you don’t disappoint. Glad you made it home safely!

    • http://nittygriddy.com/ Ingrid Abboud

      Ummm…with the team she was planning to send, I’m not sure I’d want them to rescue me haha.
      Always good to see you here Gin :) .

      And yes, I’m home safe and sound. It really wasn’t that bad. I’m use to it plus I love it!
      Talk soon.
      Ciao

  • http://nittygriddy.com/ Ingrid Abboud

    Hey Sharp Shooter ;)
    Well – now you tell me?! Had I known what you had planned for my rescue, I would have gladly stayed up there LOL.

    But in all honestly – I didn’t want to come back down. I love being surrounded by snow and especially when it’s up so high. But I was with friends with kids who have school tomorrow and thus had no choice :( .

    You’re most welcome for the mention. I thought it took a lot of balls to write that post – and you’ve been handling yourself very well in the comments. Good for you and again I’m sorry that MMS didn’t work for you the way it does for some others.

    I haven’t read Mark’s book yet – but I trust him enough to know that it’s gonna’ be great. He truly is an exceptional pro at all he does. I’m waiting for my copy to arrive :) ).

    I’m flattered to know that you trust my taste and the few people I’ve been recommending to you and Lisa. They’re not only friends but wonderful all-round human beings who rock at what they do.

    This is a nice roundup this week – and lots of new blogs.
    Definitely play a movie for your visitors – maybe even a trilogy seeing the number of posts in here hahaha. Tell them it’s a project with your international client from Beirut lol.

    Good on you for taking on a contest! Feel free to self-promote here anytime! Had you told me earlier, I would have mentioned it in here :( . So we will know what it’s about tomorrow right? Yay!

    Beach and mountains are what I love most. So I’m keeping both and I’m lucky to have both where I live – not only that but they’re only 40 minutes away from each other. Well – the beach is the entire coast of the country – so it’s pretty much everywhere you turn. And the mountains and ski resort are just breathtaking.

    Have a great Sunday – both reading and with your friends hehe.

    Thanks for your awesome comment. Always happy to see you here Brankica.
    Cheers

    Hey Ingrid, the Snowman :)

    Glad you are out of the storm, I thought I will have to get a rescue team to search for you. You know… those big, good looking guys with big muscles and charming smiles…

    First thanks for the mention. Well, this is way more than that and you know I am really grateful for sharing my post with others.

    I have heard of the Twitter Tao book the other day, didn’t know it was something new. I have a few books to go through (like Rowse’s 31 day book) and after I catch up on what I have waiting now, I am definitely gonna get this one. I so trust your taste, after suggesting a few bloggers to me.

    I definitelly haven’t read most of the posts you are recommending. I remember reading Danny Brown’s, Tristan’s, Kiesha’s and Ben’s and they are all great. So I guess (although I have some guests coming for a few days visit) my Sunday will be busy reading. I will tell them I am working on a very serious project and play a movie for them, lol.

    Great post as always and let me use this oportunity for some self promotion. I will have a little contest starting on my blog tomorrow. Nothing big, reward might be insignificant for some but this is my first shot and I wanna test different things.

    P.S. Don’t go back to the mountain… beach is better :)

      Hey Sharp Shooter ;)

      Well – NOW you tell me?! Had I known what you had planned for my rescue, I would have gladly stayed up there LOL.

      But in all honestly – I didn’t want to come back down. I love being surrounded by snow and especially when it’s up so high. But I was with friends with kids who have school tomorrow and thus had no choice :( .

      You’re most welcome for the mention. I thought it took a lot of balls to write that post – and you’ve been handling yourself very well in the comments. Good for you and again I’m sorry that MMS didn’t work for you the way it does for some others.

      I haven’t read Mark’s book yet – but I trust him enough to know that it’s gonna’ be great. He truly is an exceptional pro at all he does. I’m waiting for my copy to arrive :) ).

      I’m flattered to know that you trust my taste and the few people I’ve been recommending to you and Lisa. They’re not only friends but wonderful all-round human beings who rock at what they do.

      This is a nice roundup this week – and lots of new blogs.
      Definitely play a movie for your visitors – maybe even a trilogy seeing the number of posts in here hahaha. Tell them it’s a project with your international client from Beirut lol.

      Good on you for taking on a contest! Feel free to self-promote here anytime! Had you told me earlier, I would have mentioned it in here :( . So we will know what it’s about tomorrow right? Yay!

      Beach and mountains are what I love most. So I’m keeping both and I’m lucky to have both where I live – not only that but they’re only 40 minutes away from each other. Well – the beach is the entire coast of the country – so it’s pretty much everywhere you turn. And the mountains and ski resort are just breathtaking.

      Have a great Sunday – both reading and with your friends hehe.

      Thanks for your awesome comment. Always happy to see you here Brankica.
      Cheers
