I am not a fan of gaming the system. Here's the thing. The person with the deepest pockets can game the system longer. That's just how it is. So, how does a small business (or blog) compete? It isn't with buying likes, adding to the coffers of social media sites... Continue reading

I have two very creative people in my life who are constantly creating new products and I love that. I also have a strong love of handcrafted items and venturing through Etsy is a great opportunity to see the lovely things being created on a regular basis by craftspeople all... Continue reading

The power of Twitter is in the ability to quickly see what is happening in any given situation. Think about the Arab Spring; it was amazing to see what was happening in Egypt through Twitter. One way that is accomplished is through hashtags. One of the most universal hashtags is... Continue reading

I see people struggling with to do overwhelm everyday online. The feeling of having too much to do and not enough time to do it. There is help, but you have to try these things to stop feeling that way. Believe You Have Enough Time: This seems counter-intuitive, but the... Continue reading

People ask me how I use Twitter a lot and I thought I would share one quick tip on how I use this social tool. You don't have to be overwhelmed! Twitter is a phenomenal tool for connecting to current events, watching live broadcasts, and keeping up with people that... Continue reading

I am always looking for new recipes that will be easy on a weeknight, great for a group, or just provide leftovers for The Guy. I am also always looking for vegetarian recipes of past favorites to cut way back on our meat consumption. Whatever your reason these make easy,... Continue reading

At 44 you would think that I would be over insecurities, but guess what? You are as human at 44 as you are at 13. In the last month I have had a lot of self beat up moments because of what I see happening around me. Folks get to... Continue reading

I forgot how much I like music. Like I REALLY like music. Not on the radio much, but live music is so lovely. It is funny, terrible, off key, perfect, soul filling, heart pounding wonderfulness. This weekend I was able to help out with the first ever Ozark Mountain Music... Continue reading

Bloggers and nonbloggers wonder about how other bloggers do what they do. How do they produce content, write posts, take incredible photos each day. To demystify that I have asked a number of bloggers to share their process with us. First up is Gina. I met Gina when she was... Continue reading

8 years! Who would have thought that I would keep posting year after year. When I started blogging it was just a way to share small projects that we were doing. My goal was to share my little slice of life and work. That is still the goal. 8 Reasons... Continue reading

Old, of course, is relative. It's 45. I will be 45 this year and apparently this ridiculous show on Fox thinks that ageism against women is totally something it should tackle with its douchiest character, Schmidt. Why do I even care? I care because when I was under 30 my... Continue reading

When we were living in San Francisco I was easily working 60+ hours, commuting downtown, seeing my family in the evenings and on the weekends. The same story it is for so many, but we decided we wanted to live differently. We wanted to have a family. I wanted to... Continue reading

My mom would talk about "keeping up with the Joneses", knowing that it was impossible and deadly to even think about it. I believe she spent a lot of the first years of her marriage with young children in our little Southern California neighborhood trying to be just like everyone... Continue reading

The Goldfinch, Donna Tartt: I wanted to like this. It seemed that everyone was reading it and liking it. If you look at Goodreads your friends are probably reading this and giving it 5 stars. It was on every must read book list at the end of 2013. The new... Continue reading

It's my hope in 2014 that we make progress on how we treat ourselves, one another, relate to each other online and live our lives. The other day Jasmine commented on a photo I took as part of the #AllThingsNew14 challenge saying I was one of the most intentional people... Continue reading

I think that it is easy, especially at the beginning of the year to set your intentions too high. You are uber pumped to get after things. You want to see real change. Change seems possible. So you create all of these outrageous goals for yourself. YOu are going to... Continue reading

Some years start with a bang and a rush to get things started, but this year, for me, has started quieter and with more thoughtfulness. Not a bad thing, just different. I am participating in Ali Edwards' One Little Word again this year (last year my word was Focus) and... Continue reading

Obviously, being stuck at home make for adventuresome cooking and using what you have. The snow is melting at a rapid rate, but it is still chilly making soup sound like the perfect lunch. I have a few ingredients on hand and figure I can try to make my first... Continue reading

One of the perks (it is all how you reframe things) about living in the rural mountains behind a low water creek is that sometimes you can't go anywhere. Granted, I did not anticipate ice, snow and then rain to stop us. Ice and snow, yes. The rain was a... Continue reading

It's that time of year when everyone is doing lists of the best things that happened. Here is a look at some of those in music, books, and more. NPR's 50 Favorite Albums of 2013 - none of which I have probably listened to. We have a new plan for... Continue reading
