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!

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.

Beginning to expand to Redbubble and Amazon Merch.

Drop Me a Line

If you need to contact me, the best way is through social media such as twitter or on my facebook page.

I’m using Prime to watch some of my favorite shows and save money on purchases and shipping.

To see a sampling of some of my favorite shows (a definite leaning towards Brit Detective shows), I wrote a couple of recommendation pages for Hubpages.
