The Dog Pound Rocks
Check out the new addition to my LinkedIn profile! Yes, I managed to earn enough writing points (by essentially selling enough posts) to get up to Level 5. Wahoo! I originally hoped to make it there in June, but I've continually surpassed my writing goals these first 3 months. This will come to a... Continue Reading →
Ever pack 3 days into one?
I'm pretty sure I did that on Thursday and again today. Today I had 8 things on my To DO list - some fun, some chores, some money making blog work. I did 5 so that's not too bad when you consider I also spent time with the boyfriend. Anyway - my whole money saving... Continue Reading →
The weekend did not go as planned. Mother Nature not only didn't listen to my plea for calm weather, she essentially threw a righteous temper tantrum that effectively canceled the Super Seal Triathlon. No cheering for my friends. No pictures. No cowbell. Just lots and lots of cold cold wind and rain and even hail. Consequently... Continue Reading →
One more stat from last year
Check out those top searches. Now, that first one makes sense of course. So does Halloween & peregrine falcon (gotta admit that's pretty cool!) But....CLEANING? VODKA? Oh....lovely. One that like just about anyone else I loathe doing, avoid it unless it is absolutely necessary and I'd say my house is in need of it 99% of the... Continue Reading →

Memo to my fellow bloggers – don’t be scammed!
Funny how things work out. I've recently been helping out a friend with something that should make us both some extra money. It's taught me a whole bunch of new stuff about web marketing and search engine optimization and back linking and Google rules etc etc. Stuff I knew NOTHING about just 3 months ago....

I've been following a blog about a cat lovin' woman in Alabama for about 3-4 years now. She lives on a small farm with pigs & chickens & dogs & a shit-ton of cats. OK, to be fair, she is a foster kitty mama and has perfectly set up rooms in her farm house to... Continue Reading →
2010 in review – from WordPress stats. Kinda interesting!
The stats helper monkeys at WordPress.com mulled over how this blog did in 2010, and here's a high level summary of its overall blog health: The Blog-Health-o-Meter™ reads Wow. Crunchy numbers The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 87,000 times in 2010. If it were an exhibit at... Continue Reading →
Why do you blog?
This question (the one in the title, not the one in the cartoon :-)) was asked of me last week by a friend thinking of jumping into the blogging world. "I blog therefore, I am!" I teased. But really it is more complicated than that. I'm sure many of you who do have a blog... Continue Reading →
