The #beplus Initiative

Recently on my Twitter account and right here on my blog, I've referenced what I call "The #beplus Initiative" or simply the hashtag #beplus.
The natural question to ask is the one I'll refrain from asking in written form. 😊 But I'll still give you the answer.

The Internet (and the world at large) has this need to focus on negativity. Whether it's news reports, gadgets releases, video games, Star Wars, politics etc. etc., you will find people posting snide remarks about something. Hating on it until you can't take it anymore. Bashing people for their liking something. It goes on and on etc. etc. It's like people live to be negative and force other people to feel the same way or goad them into an argument. You know "trolling".

And lately, I'm tired of it. I'm not a negative person. I try to be positive and focus on that.

And so, that's when I thought of The #beplus Initiative. To describe all the details of what it entails would take more than the length of a single blog post. So over the weeks and months I'll shed more light on exactly what is involved with being #beplus.

The first thing to know, though, is that #beplus is about being positive. So if you tweet, comment, critique etc. etc yet again, you keep the tone positive. There are many ways to do that. And I can't wait to share then with you.

Keep an eye out for #beplus. From time to time my tweets will contain that hashtag. As you see them, you'll hopefully start to get an idea of exactly what it's all about.

How to Make a Face Mask

The United States' president and some governors are now recommending people wear a face mask to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. They're also asking that the N95 masks be reserved for healthcare workers as they help those who are suffering from the virus.

In light of this, you might be wondering if you can make one yourself?

In the video below, my wife demonstrates how to make a reusable face mask for you and your family. Though this won't guarantee prevention of the spread of the virus, it is in line with what we're being asked. Every little bit can help!


Quaratined or Stuck at Home? Here are some free books.

The global crisis regarding the COVID-19 virus (or coronavirus) is affecting anyone and everyone. Whether you get the virus or not, in some way, our lives are being impacted. Schools are closed. Parties discouraged. Social distancing encouraged. Entire countries in lockdown. Toilet paper being bought up like it's gold. The list goes on and on.

Pretty stressful stuff for sure. Something out of a movie or book. Something none of us have ever experienced to the point that it might be surreal.

You probably find yourself stuck at home right now, looking for something to do. Netflix, Disney+, video games, books. Those are probably keeping everybody company.

I'd like to give you something to occupy your time while you wait this thing out. So, starting today until the end of the month (or possibly longer depending how all of this goes), you can read any of my books at no cost. This option is available through the Smashwords website using the coupon code listed below. (This coupon cod…
