It’s a win/win

My friend Nicole’s daughter Lyla is a Girl Scout, and she’s doing a fundraiser–nope, not cookies; wrong time of year! She’s selling nuts and candies, along with magazines (paper and digital) and even some ebooks. Her deadline for both fundraisers is tomorrow night (11:59pm EDT, 11/1/17), so if you want to support a scout’s troopContinue reading “It’s a win/win”

Bring on November

I spent yesterday going to two writing groups. The first was a Meetup group for local writers. It was a mix of published writers, amateurs, and first-time meeting attendees (yesterday was my second). There were poets, bloggers, nonfiction writers, novelists, and some who just wanted to improve their writing skills. Most everyone shared something they’dContinue reading “Bring on November”

Short version: got my hair done

The long version, of course, is a damn blog post. I went into the salon with a definite idea in mind, and it was inspired by one of my favorite bloggers, Alison Headley. She’s active online in different ways now than she used to be when I first discovered her blog,, a million yearsContinue reading “Short version: got my hair done”

Qualified? Hell to the yeah

I applied tonight for this job with the New York Times. No, you can’t apply, too, because it’s apparently designed just for me. A media background? Sure thing. I just dropped in my LinkedIn profile. Traveled to several destinations? Well, I suppose the Bahamas (twice), Cancun, Cozumel, and Puerto Rico count, for outside the continentalContinue reading “Qualified? Hell to the yeah”

So much Poshmark, so little time

I had already had plenty stacked up, just ready to list in my Poshmark closet— a Rubbermaid tub, a weekender bag, and a few towering piles sitting on the guest bed. I have no shortage of inventory. What I do have is a shortage of space to store that inventory once it’s listed. So lastContinue reading “So much Poshmark, so little time”

Welcome to the new!

So I switched some things up with GoDaddy, which required many, many calls to their CS, and much patience on their part. The grand moral of the story was that I totally didn’t know the difference between and, so… there’s that. Mock me if you must. I’m still learning. But I’m back, andContinue reading “Welcome to the new!”

Hey, you like shoutouts? Apparently I do!

This one is for the pet lovers. My friend Jonathan is trying to get a new business off the ground. It’s all about healthier food for pets. Check out his GoFundMe to see what it’s all about! He’s passionate about it, being a dog owner and dog lover, and he’s done plenty of research. HeContinue reading “Hey, you like shoutouts? Apparently I do!”
