Lovely! Enjoy!
: Anyone else discovered a chatter link on BlogHer yet? Or is it still missing?

Comments

Still missing.  Maybe it's a secret?
Linda Anselmi It's like we belong to an exclusive club or something - you have to know the password to get in! ;)
Laurel Regan Linda Anselmi Haha!  yes!
Laurel Regan Linda Anselmi  LOL that's it -- this is our secret garden? ;-)
Denise Linda Anselmi *grin*
It takes some effort but if you go to "About Bloger" and then go to the FAQ and then check out the question "How do I increase the visibility of my blog or my blog posts?" and look in the fourth bullet you can see a link to chat!
cdrdash Wow, that does take effort! Definitely a back door approach, LOL!
Or you could just google it. ;-)
Weirdly, on my tablet, chatter shows in the menu at the bottom. On my laptop, I just type in www.blogher.com/chatter
Linda Anselmi you are apparently using the mobile version of BlogHer on your tablet. The link is still visible in mobile.
Denise Linda Anselmi Ha!  Now that you mention it.  I put the mobile version on to test something out and never took it off.  Well that explains that, but what's up with chatter links?  Is BlogHer doing away with it?
Denise LOL, I already have BlogHer set up as one of my default browser tabs, so it's easy enough just to type in /chatter at the end of the link!
: Rice-Cooker Risotto! So easy and hardly any stirring. http://www.blogher.com/rice-cooker-risotto

Hello, Daniele! I really like this idea and you are right! Although we often use our Cuisinart Rice cooker, I had never thought of adding flavors and extra veggies. GREAT thinking. Thanks for getting our Saturday off to a good start. Much Love, Fondly, Robin
: How glad am I that today is Friday? I am SO ready for the weekend!

Comments

me too
Denise And... it's here! Off to put on my tangled sneakers for a walk with P. :)
Laurel! With those "magical" sneakers, I imagine you walked a few inches above the ground. LOVED seeing the before and after in your monthly "Collect" of photos. And, I noticed the two shots were carefully lined up to be exactly the same composition. Of course! :)
SunbonnetSmart.com Thank you! Glad you enjoyed. :)
: How tired am I? I forgot to pour myself a cup of coffee.

Comments

You are very tired!   I'm tired enough to want a second cup of coffee.  But it is Friday so only 7 more hours of work to do and I'm free for the weekend!
That IS tired! I've been feeling tired ever since I got back from BlogHer '14 - not sure if it's something to do with jetlag, maybe? Hoping to catch up on sleep this weekend.
I feel the same way. There is something about the energy vortex that is a BlogHer Conference. Just made another pot, but I'm too tired to talk about it....
: Eee Gad. Tomorrow is August. That means only 30 days till my vacation starts!

Comments

Mine starts in 20 days!
Mine's over until Christmas!
Denise Cool!  How long are you taking off?  I'm taking a long one: 3 weeks and a day.
And, I am gearing up for Labor Day launch of the official quilting season. Oh, my, the pressure! No rest until spring.
: I wish I could adequately convey just how happy it makes me to have two cats asleep on my desk while I'm working.

Comments

They must be cooperative cats and not sleeping on your keyboard!
cdrdash They are VERY cooperative! Oscar gets into a basket I keep on my desk (ostensibly for bills and receipts, but he isn't worried about a few pieces of paper!) and sleeps there for most of the day. Felix sometimes sleeps on my mouse, but stays away from the keyboard. They really are rather lovely. :)
Hey there, Laurel and Cathy! You are so right, Laurel, about these special little beings. I was thinking about this Chatter post in the night as Kitty was sleeping up against me. It is very comforting to have them around...and so devoted. Life is special.
SunbonnetSmart.com Love it. They are wonderful creatures!
: The snooze button was my bestest friend this morning. Except it's not really a button because iPhone.

Comments

Same in our house. Mornings are hard.
Laurel Regan I avoid them all together.
SunbonnetSmart.com Smart move!
: I hung up a roll of the fly tape I got at #blogher14 -- the flies are flying AROUND it. FLIRTING with it. @rescuepestcontrol #gardenmedia

Comments

Did you TALK about it while putting it up? Big mistake. They're flies. They're not stupid. Now they know what you're up to, but they will run into it eventually. That's why I put a snack nearby. :)
: There's nothing better than homemade pickles in the summertime! http://www.blogher.com/easy-pickled-peppers-cucumbers
: Hi anyone have notes for writing lab at the conference? I was working registration at the time. Thanks for sharinf

Comments

Which specific Writing Lab session(s) were you interested in?
: We had real food for dinner. We didn't cook it, just grabbed from the grocery deli. Still, it's progress. #blogher14 #reentry

Comments

Gotta ease into these things!
: Our first drinks with the @dolcegusto @thatwoman won from #blogher14 #livewithgusto -- yummy
: I have the first day back at work overflowing Inbox blues. :( #reentrysucks #blogher14
: Back to work tomorrow. BOO! #dontwanna #reentrysucks #blogher14
: #reentrysucks #blogher14
: 100 years ago today, the war to end all wars, the Great War, began. Lest we forget.
: Today is all about catching up on all the social media stuff I neglected while at #BlogHer14. Seems a little ironic, doesn't it?!
: Home from #BlogHer14 and feeling a little shell-shocked! What a truly amazing weekend.
