All About the Color PINK

Brighter pinks are youthful, fun, and exciting, while vibrant pinks have the same high energy as red; they are sensual and passionate without being too aggressive. Toning down the passion of red with the purity of white results in the softer pinks that are associated with romance and the blush of a young woman's cheeks. It's not surprising that when giving or receiving flowers, pink blossoms are a favorite. Pink is the color of happiness and is sometimes seen as lighthearted. For women who are often overworked and overburdened, an attraction to pink may speak of a desire for the more carefree days of childhood.
How the color pink affects us physically
Bright pinks, like the color red, stimulate energy and can increase the blood pressure, respiration, heartbeat, and pulse rate. They also encourage action and confidence.
Pink has been used in prison holding cells to effectively reduce erratic behavior.

way or the other.

Bloggers like short posts. I leave comments, but I expect to get visits and comments. If a blogger ignores me, I will not visit very much longer.

You know, I can't help but read the first comment, I apologize. But I've never complied to short or long posts rules. I view blogs as personal journals willingly shared. How we, your audience reads it, is up to us and leaving comments should be left for positive and encouraging comments. You have a great blog.

I read your question about why people come to a blog. I was a marketing major in college. The biggest thing I learned is that "marketing research" can be so important. Questions and surveys are big for marketers. They also make a big deal about knowing your audience, and appealing to your demographics. I don't have the answers, but I ask myself these ssame questions since I'm fairly new to blogging.

Kitties at Our family cat-a-blog said...

Hi, there. This is the kitty momma again. I do Pink Saturday, too, but what I do is finish my page on Friday evening and schedule it to load early Saturday morning. Lots of folks that do special days start to visit blogs with their morning cup of coffee. If you aren't sure how to do a schedule, let me know and I'll help. Last Saturday I didn't even know you were participating and I leave a comment for EVERYONE but I start early in the day.

There is a link on my kitty blog that will take you to my personal blog. Take a peek at my Saturday blogs.
