Why I Blog (Hint: It Has Nothing to Do with Swag)

( Blogging )

Last night I had the pleasure of attending Disney On Ice presents Disney-Pixar Toy Story 3 with my husband and kids. The tickets were comped and we enjoyed some VIP treatment in the form of dinner and a meet-and-greet with some of the characters. We watched the show with other bloggers/media from a private suite. [...]

Social Media Vacation, New Year, New(ish) Attitude

Last week, we headed out as a family to Disney World. It was a big trip for us as we usually vacation locally (with the White Mountains and Maine nearby, why not?) and I was a bit stressed about work. As a freelancer, I don’t really get vacation time, especially since I have some steady [...]

This is the Perfect Post

( Blogging )

As you may know, I blog on QuirkyFusion.com and, of course, on Family Computing @ About.com. It’s a lot of blogging for a mom with two little kids and a shortage of day care. But that’s not my biggest problem. My big roadblock to blogging is my vision of a perfect post. It has a [...]

Hello, People. I Work.

My kids now go to daycare two days a work, which leaves me with a blissfully quiet house and some time to get things done. Some of the time goes into coordinating the lives of my family… Bug and LadyBug have a seemingly neverending supply of appointments and paperwork and so on. And there are [...]

Social Media and Monetization

There has been some talk recently about the monetization of Twitter streams. Some of the Twitter divas would like to capitalize on their large pool of followers by selling ads on their Twitter streams. I’m disappointed. Why does everything have to monetized? We spend time with our kids without billing someone. We read books or [...]

Should I?

( Blogging )

Thinking of doing NaBloPoMo this month. It’s going to be crazy, but it might be worth pushing it. I thought about doing it on two blogs, but there’s no way I can commit to that.

Nancy Traversy Interview

Nancy Traversy, CEO and co-founder of Barefoot Books, was interviewed recently on the podcast, Just One More Book. The interview is interesting; I always find Nancy’s story of the Barefoot journey compelling and I have a lot of respect for her as a female entrepreneur and long-time WAHM (she and co-founder Tessa Strickland started the [...]

Blogging in a Vacuum

( Blogging andMe )

I have admittedly neglected my blog in the past year and have neglected the blogging community, I suppose, along with it. So, now I feel like I’m blogging in a vacuum.  I’m out of touch with what others are blogging about and there aren’t a lot of people paying attention to what I’m blogging about. [...]

September Search Engine Fun

My site doesn’t have a ton of hits yet, but I usually get a few a week from search engine queries. I have been thoroughly amused by the many ways people find my site, and thought I’d start sharing the fun with you. So far, for the month of September: 8 different keyphrases Search Percent [...]

Blog it Forward Six Degrees Part II

( Blogging andKudos andMe )

My apologies for the delay!  As a reminder, the idea behind BIFSD (for lack of a better name) is to stretch out beyond my inner circle and see what I find.  I chose a blog from my blogroll and then chose a blog from their blogroll, and onwards until I found the 6th degree blog.  [...]
