Considering a Personal Injury Attorney

This post is sponsored by Diamond Links.

Working in a trauma hospital makes one realize that life as we know it, as we live it every day can be changed, dramatically, in an instant.  Many times it’s not our own mistake that causes injury either.  A driver under the influence, improper safety  procedures, work place accidents due to faulty equipment, so many things.  Injuries such as spinal injuries, head injuries, multiple injuries that would cause someone to miss months of work and hospital bills to stack up.  If you’re on vacation in Tampa, Fl and get injured you might consider  Tampa injury attorney but many people hesitate thinking insurances will get them through.

No matter how financially responsible someone is, a nest egg can quickly diminish when you’re not able to work and tens of thousands or even hundreds of thousands of dollars in medical bills roll in.  Health insurances just aren’t what the used to be.  Even if you were proactive and have a supplement injury insurance, that only covers until you can’t pay for it anymore.

It can affect loved ones too that may have take time off work to take care of the person injured or take them to multiple appointments.  In the case of an injury caused by someone else it’s never a bad idea to talk with a lawyer who can help you get what you are entitled.

Personal injury attorneys Tampa for instance, can be one such attorney.


Getting Started With Blogging

This post is sponsored by Behrman Communications. Any opinions expressed are my own.

I’ve been asked by a number of people throughout the years about how to start blogging.  There’s not really one straight answer.  I often recommend a platform and tell people that you can’t expect to write one blog post every two months and make money.   Being active on social media is another key to getting your blog out there and connecting with brands and PR companies.

Blog about something you’re passionate about. Something you can keep writing about whether it be parenting, shopping, beauty, crafts, sports, whatever you feel is you. There are plenty of groups on facebook and websites for bloggers to connect, ask questions, and connect with companies that want to work with bloggers.  Inspiring stories like Nancy Behrman and her PR company can be great motivation. It gives you an idea of how connections can help your business.  After all, if you’re serious about blogging, it is a business.

Follow companies you’re truly interested in on social media.  Don’t be afraid to put your name out there. I’ve even contacted companies in the past as well.  Be prepared to hear no.  For every 10 pitches you send out, you might get one reply.  Sometimes a brand will contact you because your blog fits with the audience they’re trying to resonate with.  It might be from a PR contact.  So it’s not unusual for a big brand to use a company like Behrman Communications for their blogger recruitment or point of contact.

It’s important to stay active on your blog once you get started.  Frequent, relevant contact is key.  Social media like Twitter, facebook, and YouTube can help add to or amplify your posts.  When you do start getting jobs for your blog, make sure to complete the job on time.  Establishing a good relationship with the company or PR firm you’re working with can lead to a long business relationship and more opportunities down the road.  I’ve had opportunities I never thought I’d have.

Be prepared to work hard.  Writing and rewriting posts, educating yourself on different techniques, creating better content and videos, working on getting the right pictures,  and hitting deadlines are just some of the things you’ll need to work on to be successful.  If you can do this, blogging as a source of income can also be a lot of fun.

72 Hours of Emergency Food Supply at a Reasonable Price from My Patriot Supply

This post is sponsored by My Patriot Supply. Any opinions expressed are my own.

Whether you are a survivalist, prepper, or just want to have an emergency food source that has a long shelf life for the unexpected, My Patriot Supply has you covered.

While I don’t consider myself a survivalist or prepper, I do believe in planning for emergencies.  I try to keep bottled water or jugs of fresh water in the house at all times.  I think we all know if there is a water line break, or a natural disaster that contaminates the local water having bottled fresh water on hand is definitely a good idea.  But have you considered food?

My Patriot Supply has many options for food with a long shelf life for emergencies or outdoor survival.  Like the 72 hour food supply with a shelf life of 25 years if unopened.  It has 16 servings of food for emergencies.  Now I’ve seen kits that have tons of food for nearly $500.  I just can’t justify spending that much on food we may never eat.  The 72 hour food supply bag from My Patriot Supply however, is only $28.99.  72 hours could get someone through a bad snow storm who may not be able to leave the house for groceries, 72 hours could be a camping trip,  throw a couple of the packets in a backpack when hiking “just in case”.  There could be a number of reasons for anyone to have a emergency food source available for several days.
