I Am Thinking...

...About not re-posting on BlogHer anymore.  I'm not 100% sure that I am going to stop, but right now, it's a lot of work, and the outcome isn't really worth it.  Though I love the BlogHer community, it might be that I have to stick to blogging on my actual blog. I searched through Twitter for one of my entries, and found that a ton of people were linking to my BlogHer posts as if they had written them.  It was very, very disheartening.  It also made me feel as if my writing and images were less protected somehow....more

No, what these people were doing was full on stealing my work. And it was all through BlogHer, ... more

Guest Blogger: Crabs & Coconut (plus a little shrimp)

When I first started blogging, I had two readers. They appeared out of nowhere, and I was so happy to have them. We sort of became a little threesome. We commented on each others' blogs, kept up with what we were doing, and basically stalked each other. One day, I was heartbroken when I went to one of the blogs, Crabs & Coconuts, and saw that Sommer, the blogger, had written a post saying that she and her fiance were calling off their wedding, and saying she was going to take down the blog....more

And I couldn't be happier for my (blog) friend! : O ) more

Advice

So, I have a dilemma and I don't know what to do. I figured who better to ask than you lovely readers. Here goes...Currently, I am working overtime twice a week (Tuesdays and Thursdays). I earn pretty good money for doing so. It's almost the equivalent of a third paycheck a month. Then two other days a week, I stay late for purposes related to the grant I won a few months ago. This means that 4 days out of the week, I work late and get home late. In fact, Mondays are my only early days, and typically those days I run errands for the house or for my job....more

Hi guys! Thanks for all of your comments. I was finishing up my last week of overtime last ... more

Dirty Thirties: An Updated List for 2011, Prt. 1

Today, I turn 30 years old. It's really not that big of a deal. You think it's going to be a big deal, but it's not. Getting old is pretty much something you get used to after 21, and you realize that every birthday after that is just about getting older....more

We just bought a used car, and that was scary. I can't believe that at I'm at a point in my ... more

What's New in the iPad2

Apple, with characteristic hoopla including a talk by Steve Jobs, held a press event March 2 to announce an upgrade to one of its hugely popular products. That product is the iPad 2. ...more

No More "FML" in 2011

In 2011, I will delete each and every ‘friend’ who writes the words FML on their Facebook or Twitter pages. I want to surround myself with people who think positively and are willing to make the changes that need to be made without quitting -- even when life gets really hard. ...more

On a lot of wedding related blogs, FML stands for "future mother-in-law." That could be a bad ... more

Boring

Before Christmas, I'd written a ton of posts that I drafted and saved. I decided a while back to increase the amount I blog, and I think that since that declaration, I've done a decent job of keeping that promise. The goal I set for myself was 3 times a week: Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. For the most part, I blogged those three days every week, and it has a lot to do with the fact that I would sit down and write a bunch of posts, publish one, and save the rest to post later. ...more

I carry a notebook around with me, too! The only thing is that my job really prevents me from ... more
