Pain Makes People Desperate

March 7, 2020 * 0 Comments

Pain desperation is a thing. Pain is an epidemic in this country, as much as opioids are. Chronic pain sufferers cannot get the pain relief they so desperately need. More and more, I ask the question: What’s worse? Addiction or pain. I don’t have the answers.

Begin at the beginning…. solve those first big steps and a plan begins to take place, things begin to take shape and pretty soon, relief. Here are some methods that I find most effective when faced with some insurmountable task that contains a million different pieces, and I would love if you would share yours. My mind is always open to different ways of getting from the beginning to the end.

Staying focused and resilient is hard – especially for business owners and people who live stress-filled lives.

I don’t often make a lot of new year resolutions – but I have made one for 2020 and it’s a personal one of reading 20 books. That goal is not a stretch for me, but I want to be realistic. Life sometimes gets in the way of being able to sit in a comfy chair and get lost in a good book.

Five Years Ago

December 12, 2018 * 3 Comments

Half a decade ago, I took this website down with the intention to cull some of the archives – – keep items I thought were important to me and lose the rest, and then redesign it and relaunch it. I never got back around to it. I mean, I tried a few times. I pulled a backup and transferred it to my new hosting account and started weeding out the crap that I wrote on my blog since 2001. I always got stalled and distracted by other things.

September 17, 2010 * 10 Comments

In October, I am flying to Las Vegas for the annual Blog World & New Media Expo, and am pretty excited about it.  Aside from the fact that I love Vegas (read: I adore Blackjack) – I get the opportunity to catch up with some old friends, make new ones and spend some quality time with my husband, who does not always get to accompany me to my travels across the country!

WordPress Web Design For Dummies

August 13, 2010 * 36 Comments

Continuing along with my line of WordPress-themed books, I am currently working on adding a new title to my WordPress arsenal: WordPress Web Design For Dummies (published by Wiley Publishing: For Dummies division). WordPress Web Design For Dummies will focus completely on designing web sites with WordPress. The book assumes you already have knowledge of how to use WordPress (ie: you have already read my other book, WordPress For Dummies) – and you want to learn more about designing web sites with WordPress.

Smashing Magazine: Women in Web Design

Earlier this year, I was interviewed by Smashing Magazine for their “Women in Web Design: Group Interview” article. They asked some really interesting questions, and present all of our answers together in one huge mash up of female web design wisdom and goodness. I’m super honored to be listed among that group of fine ladies — and have to say, a little tickled pink to have been asked since I’ve been a raving fan of Smashing Magazine for quite some time!
