Pajama Party Ideas

I created a new leaf or article about pajama party ideas. Pajama parties are popular themes these days. Schools even have pajama days where everyone goes to class dressed in pajamas. Pajama days combine education and entertainment. Pajama days essentially make learning fun. Similarly pajama parties are a fun way to relax with friends. A pajama party is essentially a party with a pajama theme.

This is my sixth leaf on Zujava. I am pleased to say that many of the most active members of Zujava are also well known members of Squidoo. Because of that there seems to be very high quality content there and a very friendly community. If you have not yet tried it yet, why not create a free account now?

How To Sleep Train A Baby

We struggled with our baby's sleep for over a year. It was one of the hardest times of our lives. Then we stumbled on an approach to sleep training that worked for us. In my next Zujava Leaf I share our approach for sleep training our baby.

By the way, this is now my fifth Zujava Leaf! If you do not yet know about Zujava, it is very much like Squidoo but newer. So, by signing up, you can now be at the beginning of a small but rapidly growing community. Next to Squidoo, Zujava is my favorite writing platform. Click below to sign up and find out why.

How to consolidate my online presence?

It isn't until I have something I really want to publicize that I get frustrated by the too-numerous online platforms where I've landed briefly and left a little bit of contact information. I tend to forget about them then, and they don't do me any good. Like my facebook page! It was supposed to be a place to keep up with news in my various musical endeavors, but because it slipped my mind, I never promoted it and it never went anywhere.

So lately as I think about trying to promote my brand-new cd project, Cabaret Warsaw, Polish Jewish songs of the 1920s and 1930s, I look at all the social media alternatives and realize I can't possibly find the time to keep them all updated. Maybe my facebook page is a good hub for updates?

If people "like" my facebook page, they'll see when I post new free download mp3 tracks of the music we're recording; they'll know when the cd is available for sale and can be pointed to the record label website I've now switched to; I can also post concert appearances.

If you're interested in the progress of this project, I humbly ask you to "like" my page here and join me at facebook for an adventure in obscure but gorgeous music.

Easy Steps to Potty Training A Baby

I am still on a Zujava binge and have made my fourth and probably favorite leaf. This one is about potty training our baby boy.

This is the milestone that many parents look forward to and many parents dread. We just completed this milestone with great success and in this leaf, I give away our tips for successfully potty training our 2.5 year old boy. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.

Zujava The New Alternative To Squidoo?

Sign up for Simple online publishing.

I have created my third leaf on Zujava about Foot Warmers and am really enjoying it there. Why? I love the fact that it is a new small community and there is an opportunity to make an impact and be heard. It is fun to be in on it from the first days.

Another great thing about having an account at Zujava is that it is another place to give a link to your websites from. From the SEO point of view, it is better to have two links to your website, from two different domains, than having 10 links to your website all from the same domain. I am always looking for a good place to give my websites "DoFollow" links. Unlike Hubpages and other websites, Squidoo and Zujava offer "Dofollow" links. Hubpages links will become Nofollow if your ranking drops below a certain value and that makes those links useless.

Update on Zujava

As I reported earlier, I have been testing Zujava. I am a fan of Squidoo and have long been looking for a good alternative, and BINGO, I think I have found it.

Zujava will never replace Squidoo in my heart. But at the moment, it is a close second. I am not a fan of Hub Pages. In fact, I will go so far as to say, I do not like Hub Pages. I have made very little money with my Hubs and I really resent the fact that, if I am in active, my links become nofollow links. So, my work on Hub Pages have given me very little return.

Zujava is quite similar to Squidoo and as far as I can see, MUCH better than Hubpages. There is a very supportive community there, perhaps because it is still quite small.

I recently created my second "Leaf" on Zujava (a leaf is the Zujava equivalent of a Lens) about how to send a gift to Europe. It is now featured on the home page of Zujava. Not a bad start.

So, if you have not been to Zujava, I recommend to check it out and while you are there, Create a free account on Zujava. What have you got to lose? If you like Squidoo, you are going to like Zujava.
