SHARE – with our Share Buttons

So… Share Buttons. They are amazing little buttons, aren’t they?

At least, us, bloggers think so. You can’t find a functioning blog without a couple of them. That’s how we like to share our works mostly–via those teeny-weeny magic buttons.

I have them

share buttons

Just added the new WhatsApp button too. Amazing, right?

All right, let’s talk a bit about what they are for.

Share buttons come under every post (and sometimes pages) as means to promote blog entries. They are not there for the blogger… not really. They are there for the readers and followers. They are tiny buttons that empower the blog readers or blog visitors. They are like “Letters of Invitation” you issue to an outsider when you are super-lucky to be in the US or UK… or any of these European “mega” countries.

Only this invitation is presented not just to one, but to all on your social media contacts. And it guarantees instant “visa”; for when your friends and family and all others on Facebook, Twitter, Google +, LinkedIn and on your WhatsApp contact get these invites and accept them by way of visiting the blog, they are automatically welcomed and mesmerized by our stories here *wink*, they never go away again.

They are also magic little buttons that spread the good news of our blog… and in this case, Life and Spices.com. They are a way of your further appreciating my stories and encouraging me by boosting my blog visitors’ count and shooting me up on the Google Rank radar.

Share Buttons are for you. They are friendly, easy to use tools. They don’t take any time at all and they are not all intrusive. You can use them at any time and by just a click.

Prefer to use them after you read and comment? Great. Just do your thing. No hassle.

But use them… please.

C’mon folks, let’s not be selfish. You enjoy stories here, don’t ya?

Who isn’t having fun with Key To My Heart, huh?

So, if you are enjoying it and you consider it an interesting read, why don’t you share with your friends on Facebook, eh? Share links with your friends on WhatsApp, Twitter and allow those on your Google + have a look-see?


Now, let’s talk SHARE in another language. With another meaning.

You want to share my work? You’d like one of my stories on your blog? (I refrain from using Facebook Page because those pages are mega porous). But the question is, do you want to share my story, my articles… whatever, on your blog or pages?

That can be permissible. I might not permit the use of some stories as they are only exclusive to Life and Spices.com. But there are some I might allow out of here. And all articles can be re-posted on other blogs.

The way to share?

Don’t copy and Paste!!!

Oops! That is a way NOT to share. Tsk, I get carried away. Lol.

Way to share? Get in touch with me, TM David-West, as the writer, blogger and copyright owner of the work(s) via: tmdavidwest@lifeandspices.comI would invite you to call me or contact me via WhatsApp, but I prefer these things written and formal. That way, I got records… lol.

So get in touch with me… and see if you can share.


Don’t Copy and Paste!!!

I will find out at some point, and I am not nice when I find content thieves. They will tell you, I am meaner than the devil in those days. Dang! So, don’t copy and paste. Don’t do the RSS feed bullsh*t. Don’t sit back and begin retype on your PC. DON’T BE A CONTENT THIEF.

Remember, I’ve placed a curse on that… and I meant it. You might fear Amadioha and Shango more than you fear the Almighty God… but I’m telling you, you ought to fear Him more. And you ought to take ’em curses seriously.

So… SHARE. With our SHARE BUTTONS. And Get in touch with TM, to see if you can share on your blog.

Thank you all. And y’all have a great week now.

Much love…

All My Thanks

I want to simply, and from the very depth of my heart, thank everyone for the support given me yesterday when we were all dealing with the content theft and copyright infringement issue.

To say I was touched and grateful for your responses and actions towards the matter would be putting it mildly.

Indeed we are family here. I pray that God blesses everyone and shields them from the path of the enemy. Not just you, but your family and your properties too.

An update would be that I spent the night going through this Facebook Page where I found my TOO LITTLE, TOO LATE and have been working on getting it out of there all morning. Whilst most of the pages with my work have been taken down, I still find some pages and these I have, right now, reported to Facebook.

Once more, I sincerely thank everyone and may God bless you all.

Much love.

DISABLE Right Click not the Solution???

I was just told by the “thieving characters” who not only infringed on my copyright claim on THE MARRIAGE ULTIMATUM but also changed the title of SWEET FORBIDDEN to FORBIDDEN FRUIT and used it on their Facebook page, that disabling right-click, CTRL-C and CTRL-J is not the solution to not having my works robbed off this site.

While I knew that Opera Mini defies such inputted regulations and makes it easier for “thieves” to steal works off the web, I am also told that Opera Mini is not even what was used by them.

Did I ask them what they used?

No. I don’t make deals with the devil!!!

But I will not have my work stolen and robbed anymore. I need a lawyer and I need a hungry, desperate, know-what-he’s-about lawyer. A lawyer willing to persecute until we bankrupt “copyright thieves”. If you know such a lawyer, get in touch with me on: tmdavidwest@lifeandspices.com.

This is WAR!

TM SAYS – The Thief is Cursed!!!

There is nothing that raises bile up to my tongue as the report or the finding out that once again I am being robbed of my intellectual property.

There is nothing I despise more than petty, moral-less thieves!

How could you? How dare anyone visit my blog… here on Life and Spices.com and you dare to steal from me? How dare you copy and paste my work without my due permission?

And you dare to think that appending my name to your un-permitted use of my work clears you of the guilt of stealing? You dare to think that that makes it all right to get down to copying and pasting my story on your Facebook page?… Or anywhere else your thieving mind tells you to?

Did I make a request of publicity to you or to your company?

Help Please

Good morning, folks. Hope we all started this new week in the best of spirits. I kind of did… lol.

Please I need a little help from anyone willing to give it. I am beginning the writing of my last novel for 2016 next Sunday… hey, I said last novel, not last story or last novella or novelette *wink*.

Anyway, I need to get a solid job description for my heroine. I want her working in an office (not a doctor, nurse, lawyer or even engineer). Just a regular worker. Doing well enough. Not rich, not poor… just steady, hehehe.

I don’t plan on going into the details of her job. I might not even mention it more than twice. But I need to know clearly what she does and to know what her duties entails. I also need to know which industry she works under. So, I need someone, anyone, who is willing to talk to me about their job. If you are a guy and a lady can do your job, please let me interview you. If you’re a woman and you work in an office and possibly work in a unit with colleagues doing same thing, I’d like that better.

Please just indicate your willingness to share your job details with me and I will send you an email with my questions.

This is really important to me, so I will appreciate a couple of choices so I could chose from the lot.

Thanking you all in great anticipation. Meanwhile, let’s enjoy these little jokes.


For the Blind

A shopkeeper with no conscience put by his door a box with a slit in the cover and a label reading, “For The Blind”.

As people came into the shop, many were compassionate and dropped money into the box. A month later, the box disappeared. When someone inquired concerning it, the shopkeeper chuckled, and pointed to the window. “I have collected enough,” he explained. “There is the new blind.”

Still Crooks

The editor of a small country newspaper, furious over several government bills that had been recently passed, printed a scathing editorial with an enormous headline:


Many local Politicians were outraged and exerted tremendous pressure on him to print a retraction. He finally gave in to the pressure, and ran his apology with the headline:


Giveaway – The Winners

Wow! This certainly didn’t happen like I thought it would happen. Lol.

Okay, we’ve gone past our scheduled timeline… my waiting was also in hope that power would be restored.

So, let’s call the winners and announce titles and prices. Gotta to tell you guys, your guessing-game is lame. Lol.

But it’s been fun and only winners take a prize *aw*

Giveaway – The Game

Hiya everyone, welcome to the first ever—Giveaway – The Game.


Alrighty, let us begin. But before we begin the game, I’d like to do my author’s copy giveaway for Unconventional Proposal. Let us be aware that my author’s copy giveaway will get to every commenting member of the Life and Spices.com e-family. As long as you are commenting, and TM knows ya, you’ll one day get an author’s eBook copy.


So I’m actually doing, or have actually done, two author’s copy giveaway for UP. One copy went to Kemmy. And this simply because I made her a promise last year November that I would gift her UP when I was done writing. She didn’t reply that particular mail though… one of those who never round off a good communication process *rme*.
