Support The Sites with Amazon

Creating a website is costly. Apart from the time and love put into it, there are resources, domains,  and hosting to purchase. Please support by purchasing through my Amazon affiliation. Thank you, Friends!



Websites, blogs, and online articles, along with social media: I write in lots of places. You may have seen ‘Ilona’s Garden’, my garden website | Garden Librarian, for garden book reviews  | IlonaGarden @ Hubpages


I have again started to share whatever solutions or useful apps and new stuff to share with readers on Ilona’s Reflecting Pool. “How to blog better”, “Healthy Woman” are two topics of many. Check out my blogs.

Social Media

I am on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, regularly. On Instagram, Linkedin, Google+, and other places, just look for Ilona1 or Ilonagarden as my two main handles online.
