Crowdsourcing FTW

EDITED WITH LATEST ATTEMPT AT BOTTOM So! Remember when I designed a tattoo, never got it, but other people did and then some people sold my graphic in an etsy shop? That was weird! Well, I’ve been thinking about redoing that graphic and, you know, TAKING CARE OF IT this time so no one steals it and sells it in their Etsy shop! (In her defense, I never watermarked it or sourced it. I just stuck it on Pinterest as a placeholder. I didn’t realize other people would like it.) And then yesterday I had an idea to do a...

This Is Why ALL Adult Women Need To Be More Active On YouTube

Let me start by saying it is no secret I adore Emily Graslie. I fell in love with her after she led Hank Green on a tour for one of HIS videos and I supported the resounding masses in saying, “GIVE HER A CHANNEL!” I’ve written about her and other Geeky female YouTubers here. I link their videos on Facebook and Twitter regularly. I show them to my kids. I am very supportive of the STEM (Science Technology Engineering Math) Women on YouTube yet…YET…I never comment.

Godspeed To My Space Crush

This weekend was INSANE. The only time I was home all weekend was to eat/sleep/bathe – and I didn’t even do all of that at home. Nor did I do much of any of it. From about 3pm on Friday until bedtime last night it was a constant flurry of activity and it may not slow down at all until June as we have an out-of-town wedding, two graduations, one birthday, and family coming into town for several of those things. CALGON…BRING ME A BEER! BUT! I can NOT let today pass with taking a moment to feature one of...

Follow Me To The New RSS Party!

First off? We’re having internet issues in our house. This is why my presence here and everywhere else online has been a bit sporadic. I apologize for this. Without regular blogging my left eye starts to twitch and I acquire an unexplained limp. If I don’t solve these technological issues soon, I’ll be rotating around the “Free Wi-Fi” locations around here. Secondly? Did you hear that they’re shutting down my favorite RSS feed reader in July? I mean – FIRST they took away the ability to share and comment on the thing – and now they’re getting rid of it?...

Entry #5,972 Trying To Convince You To Switch To Gmail

If you use Gmail? Feel free to move on past this blog entry. But if you don’t? Especially if you hand out your work email or your home-based internet provider email address when asked for one? Then I’d like to (try once again to) convince you to get a Gmail account and begin the transition in your life TODAY. It may take a little while to get everything switched over, but if you can set up an auto-forward on your old email it will make the transition so much easier! And I plan on convincing you it will be WELL...
