8 Ways to Verify the Legit Factor8 Ways to Verify the Legit Factor

Sandra Lynn, Informed Sharing

I’ve seen it countless times, most often on Facebook, scrolling down my feed and what do I find? A post or three (or more, sadly) that just plain isn’t true. Not only isn’t it true but the postee has been so badly taken in that he or she has hopped on the cause in such a manner as to bring embarrassment to themselves and others by either furthering the supposed cause or by insisting to others that it is true. Yikes. This sort of thing has to stop. We are not a stupid people, people. And it’s time we started taking care to verify the legit factor. Click the above link to find out some easy steps you can take to do just that for all your social media shares.

Janet has done it again with another lovely addition to our page here. This time she is sharing her favorite seasonings with all of us. And for added flavor (clever, I know…) she’s even mentioned some of the health benefits associated with most of them. I am familiar with all of them, love many of them, and now have a hankering to get into the kitchen and do some cooking – a rarity for me. But hey, that’s what it’s all about here, learning to live better – mind, body, and spirit. Thanks for sharing your tasty favorites, my friend. We can’t wait for your next eight great…

8 Things I Like About Mystery Shopping8 Things I Like About Mystery Shopping

paigea, Persona Paper

SHOPPING! While not a big fan of it in general (the shopping part), mystery shopping has always held an allure for me that I cannot shake. I remember long ago receiving emails to join companies that while looked enticing turned out to be too good to be true. I thought for years that Mystery Shopping was just something that other more lucky people got to do. Turns out, paigea is one of those lucky ones. And she EARNS from it. Follow the link above to discover just eight of the reasons she enjoys reaping the reward of shopping mysteriously and why you may consider giving it a go, yourself.

8 Reasons to Love Hydroponic GardeningEight Reasons I Love Hydroponics

Janet Jenson, Persona Paper

If you have a brown thumb (like me) and/or live in a space that doesn’t allow for a garden (like me) of the usual kind, you may consider this alternative. Growing hydroponically. Which is just a really fancy word for growing plants in water. AWEsome. But don’t let me get you sidetracked here. Janet has given us 8 great reasons why she loves hydroponic gardening and why can you too. I can’t decide which is my favorite on her list – the ease of the growing (I really suck at keeping plants alive, I’m so sorry for all the plants I’ve killed over the years) or that she has a foot fetish…yikes. You’ll have to click through to find out what that’s about. Enjoy and happy growing, folks!

Inspiring Kitchens Top 8 Restaurant ItemsNational Restaurant Show Favorite Products

Julie, Inspiring Kitchen

It’s no secret (or it shouldn’t be by now) that I’m lazy in the kitchen – rather in awe of those who enjoy spending time there. Well, I recently happened upon a lovely lady who not only enjoys it, she also likes building dream kitchens for other folks. Which causes her to occasionally find herself in the position of spending time at trade shows for various kitchen related products. Including restaurant stuff. And now she’s bringing them to us, her eight favorite things among the thousands she visited this past Spring at the National Restaurant Association Show in Chicago. A very inspired list, I say and I’m happy to share, informatively. Thanks, Julie 🙂

The Next 8 Just as GreatThe Next 8 – Just as Great at Persona Paper

Sandra Lynn, Informed Sharing

This week, I dug in a little deeper and visited some folks I didn’t know all that well before joining Persona Paper. This was a real treat. Perhaps the best part of featuring these folks each week on my blog is getting to know PP Peep(ers) better, eight at a time – taking time – to enjoy them at my own pace and with true intentions. That’s how I want to learn more. And I hope you do, too. My hat is off to each individual who made the list and for all they do to share their thoughts in ways that make all our lives better for having peeked in, even for just a moment. Thank you all!

Sandra Lynn, Informed Sharing

Choosing 8 great writers from Persona Paper wasn’t so hard. Spending time with each of them yesterday, without telling them, was a tiny bit harder. Writing my blog post and scheduling it for this morning and then WAITING patiently for it to go LIVE so I could share them HERE was insane. Okay. I might have some issues. But I’m excited. They’re here. The first eight of many, I hope. Take a peek inside and see who’s showcased for this first week. And be sure to check back often; I’ll be sharing more AWEsome PP Peeps. YAY!

Top Cars 2014Top 8 Best New 2014 Cars for Gas Mileage

Parks Chevrolet

Just to give you and example of how a share can end up here and who can contribute. I ran a search for “top 8 cars 2014” and found this post by Parks Chevrolet. It’s relevant, informed, gives a wide variety of gas-saving vehicles for 2014 and most importantly – it lists eight. My personal favorite on the list? Well, you think I’d go with #8, being partial to the number and all. But I’m leaning toward #2; maybe #6. Which adds up to eight. Yikes. I cannot make this stuff up. Seriously. Forgive my eccentricity. Do you have a favorite gas saving vehicle, on or off that 2014 list?

Your Top 8 - Wedding Veil8 Inspired Wedding Hairstyles for Brides?

Tania, Percy Handmade

I’m so excited about this eights page that I couldn’t resist searching for more of your top 8, this morning. Since I’m an old hairstylist, I plugged in “top 8 hairstyles” and since I recently tied the knot, chose this piece for today’s inclusion. Tania, from Percy Handmade, seems to have quite a handle on all things wedding related and she doesn’t disappoint with her choices for these lovely brides. My favorite? I prefer simple when it comes to my own style, so it’s a toss up between #1 and #2; maybe #3. But they are all stunning – and pin-worthy, too. What’s your bridal veil hairstyle fav?

Top 8 Culture Club SongsTop 8 Culture Club Songs of the 80’s

Steve Peake

This one was super fun to find. I searched for “top 8 80’s songs” and Culture Club (remember them?) popped up. I’m not very musically inclined, having grown up listening to whatever my parents were into (this has led to many issues later on in my life – we’ll get to those in future blog posts, I promise 😉 ) but I do recognize a few of these songs. I did manage to own a radio back in the day, ya know. What favorite Culture Club tune did you have in the 80’s? Did it make this list?

8 Unusual Baby Names8 Unusual Baby Names – Popular in 2013

Michelle Horton

I tend to stay away from “popular baby names” lists and so this list drew me in. Not that I’m in the market, mind you. But I like unique names. My daughter has one; even down to having the spelling changed (you’re welcome Mags) further. I enjoyed perusing this list for a couple reasons – most particularly because it was set up as a slide that was quick and easy to “thumb” through and get a glimpse of these eight great and unusual baby names. From the many comments, it would appear they really are catching on!

Anyone can contribute, as long as what you share follows the rule of eight. There are a few other simple rules but those are easy, too. If you are interested in sharing your 8 favorites list about (what or who) you happen to find in your intertube travels, just give us a shout. And be sure to bookmark this page and check in often as we update with Your Top 8!

~ Cheers
