Joined 5 years ago from Ontario, Canada

I have chosen the user name of Craiglyn because it is a combination of my husband Craig's name and mine - Lynda. It came to me when I was setting this up initially as a thought.

I will clear the air immediately upon setting up my profile. I lost my love and best friend three years ago this coming September 4th to cancer. Through this last year I have learned to communicate with him telepathically, and I have just written a book about my experiences since his passing. He was and still is, my soul mate.

I was born in Toronto into a neighbourhood rich with Italians - having an Italian background myself. And this has been fodder for seveal blogs that I have done during my years of researching and finding information in my genealogy quest. I got my feet wet, so to speak, blogging about my family history, both ancestors that I heard many stories about, and present day family. I have also blogged about various places I have traveled to.

My interests are writing, reading, gardening, travel and entertaining. I look forward to meeting other people of like mind on Hubpages.

"A Breath Away" has just been published and is available through Friesen Press, Amazon and Chapters. Signed copies are also available through me. Check out my website: http://www.lyndamatthews.com

        Banned Followers

        I have a least two followers who have since been banned from Hubpages.   Is there a way to delete these followers off of your profile as it gives a false number count.

        5 years ago

        I feel dumb but I haven't yet figured out how to share a hub.  I.E. If I read someone else's hub, a follower of mine,  and I want to promote her hub by "sharing" it with the rest of the hubbers ...

        5 years ago

        I was initially turned down for Google Adsense because of course I didn't know I didn't have enough hubs and traffic.   Once over 20 hubs and more traffic I applied again.  On September 11 I got an email...
