Friday Fun: Creativity From Del.icio.us to Delicious

09/01/2006

Friday Fun is Diva Marketing's virtual happy hour from cosmos to Jack to lemonade. A waiting for the weekend 'playground' time to be sophisticated-silly. Or sometimes just plain silly.

Today's Friday Fun is all about creativty from del.icio.us techie tools that help share and link to handmade delicious scarfs from the other side of the world (from Atlanta).

Girlfriend, social media tools are being developed as fast as as a fashion change at a run way show. Just when you finally figured out how to spell del.icio.us up pops a toy box of new fun. Find a pair of white GoGo boots and boogy woogy the night away with a tool that sounds like a disco dance linkaGoGo> Then it's on to dessert with something called Raw Sugar .. hope it comes with some yummy chocolate.

How to keep track was a nightmare for most people. Offering more than a couple of options to your readers was even more frustrating. Lee Odden, Online Marketing Blog, has developed a couple of nifty social media tools that make all that a snap. In true blogger kindness, Pink_boa_15he has provided them gratis. Toss of a pink boa to Lee.

The first tool allows you to add a social bookmark menu after each post or on a static web page. The jazzy thing about this tool is the social bookmark links are presented in a drop down menu to save screen space.

The second tool is an RSS Button Maker. By placing your cursor over the orange RSS icon a list of the top RSS readers folds out so you can subscribe using your favorite reader. Just might have to create a blogger boogy dance for this one!

Madam_jillys_scarfs_1 Speaking of boas and scarfs .. boas are sort of scarfs .. so cut me a bit a slack with this segway .. My dear friend Madam Jilly from Auckland New Zealand sent me the photos of her latest gorgeous hand-knited scarfs. Jilly is an artisan whose creativity continues to amaze me.

She's agreed to accept out of country orders for her one of a kind hand-knit creations. The scarfs in the photo are about 3-4 feet in length and sell for $150 each. Would make awesome holiday gift for any diva! This is not a commerce deal for Diva Marketing .. just a pass along. If you're interested drop a comment and I'll make sure that Madam Jilly receives it.

 On Mon.9/4/06-Labor Day-Pluto turns Direct. This is the planet that is associated with the underworld. So when you come back to work from the holiday, if you’ve been manipulating, trying to keep secrets, or going behind a co-workers back, Pluto has a nasty way of revealing such things. If you’ve heard in the news that Astronomers have demoted Pluto as being a planet, Astrologers aren’t likely to think less of this powerful “planet.”

The Full Moon in Virgo on 9/7/06 this month is also a Lunar Eclipse giving added strength. If you find yourself feeling stressed out with too much work to get done, take time out of your very busy day to find a quiet place to relax a few minutes. Calm your racing mind. Take a deep breath. The solutions may just become clear as a bell if you just allow the inspiration to flow. The Moon is also aspecting Uranus, so unexpected change may upset the apple cart.

It's great to be back and read this! Ah...

Sounds like next week will be challenging. So much stressful stuff has been going on and lots of sticky fingers in too many pies... the fallout should be entertaining to watch (so long as it doesn't hit me too).

Did the demotion diminish Pluto's powers? Or did it just make Pluto out for revenge?
