Summertime Community Block Party! Being hosted by a dynamic Poet, Mr. Bob McNeil


Hello Summertime


*”Support Your Local Library!”

Grand Army Plaza Library (Brooklyn, NY), was my first experience in a Library. It was love at first sight. I think my brain actually drooled at the site of all those books, lol! I was 5 years old….

It’s important to support our libraries. They’re vital to reaching many in need of not just books, but also for their many services, resources and are an overall Information Hub.

*”Do You Know A Publishing Scam, When You See One?”

“Now, I love resources! Especially as a writer/poet, they lead to many opportunities. I often share these finds here and on my other, social media pages. I always include, that one should read all the rules, requirements and “DO YOUR HOMEWORK!”

When I am entering any contests, paying for ANYTHING in general, trust and be sure, that I will be running them through the BBB (Better Business Bureau – https://www.bbb.org/en/us). Every state has one & you can get free and useful information, that can save you a possible future headache. You can also file complaints against a business that has caused you some form of damages (with proof of course). Because for me? Reading reviews aren’t always good enough. Many companies hire people to make-up false reviews. So, I like to check things out as much as possible. Things still do occur, but it’s worth the efforts.

I stumbled across this article, “3 Signs of A Publishing Scam” and felt it was indeed, Blog-Worthy, lol!
