5 Years, and counting

It’s all the rage in the blogosphere to celebrate Blogiversaries. What IS a blogiversary? It’s the anniversary of your blog, of course! Today is my 5th year blogging here at Five years – how old does that make me in blog years? To celebrate – I’m giving away 5 autographed copies of my soon-to-be-released book, WordPress For Dummies. One book for every year I’ve been blogging here. More about that later, though. Actually, I’ve been blogging on this domain much longer than that (more like 8 years), but my archives only go back to October 28, 2002. Why? Back […]

Calling All Pumpkin Carvers and WordPress Lovers

Really, what does pumpkin carving have to do with WordPress…or vice versa?? Well, nothing really – – not literally, anyways. But, hey – this is the internet… we can make associations between things that were never associated before. As Halloween approaches and all the goblins and ghouls come out to play (a/k/a/ those pesky munchkin-types who come to your door looking for sweet treats) – – people also bring out the big, bright orange gourds, otherwise known as pumpkins – and carve them into artistic masterpieces. Enter Leanne’s 3rd Annual Pumpkin Carving Contest. She’s been running the contest for the […]

For the love of chocolate

Paul is my favorite person this week. Why? Out of all the great people in my life, why would I choose Paul as my favorite? Because he brought me the BEST news via email. Paul and I share a passion that goes beyond design. An obsession and joy that bridges the gap of distance between him (in the UK) and me (in the US). What is this unearthly shared passion between he and I? Chocolate., not chocolate – – Chocolat (Pronounced: shok-o-LA). Months ago, Paul introduced me to a UK site called Hotel Chocolat. Oh. My. God. This stuff […]

Hello Monday!

We’re home from our Myrtle Beach vacation. It was SO nice – the weather was beautiful and I got a decent tan. We played a lot in the surf and took moonlit walks on the beach every night, just because we could. There wasn’t a whole lot of vacation activity – we just took the entire week slow and enjoyed the time away. We didn’t get any diving in last week at all – – the storms they experienced there made the visibility less than zero. There is no shore diving to be had in South Carolina and the one […]

Early Blogging

I’m blogging early . . or late, depending on how you look at it. It’s 6:30 am and I’ve yet to sleep. So, is it early…or is it late? I report – you decide. I had a nice time at BlogHER. Chicago is always fun to visit – if it’s possible to be in love with a city (and it IS), Chicago would be my second love. Seattle is my first (sorry Chicago!). I love the design of the city, the architecture..the lake. I just like big cities, overall — there’s such a nice feeling of being just a number, […]

8 Things You Don't Know About Me

My good friend, Chelle tagged me with this meme, who was tagged first by Kate – who was. . . well, yea – you get the picture. For this one, I need to come up with 8 things you do not know about me – and since I’ve been blogging here on this same domain for the past 5, that might be difficult.. but I’ll try and see if I can come up with something you don’t know – or cant’ find already posted in my archives. I met my husband, Chris, via the internet in January 2001. He lived […]

Quick Update

Just a quickie today . . I’m pressed (shoved? smashed?) against some hard deadlines today. Coffee.. coffee and MORE coffee please! Last week, I mentioned a radio interview that I did on SRD Radio with my good friend, Dave Chadwick. Dave has the episode up and live today so you can go and listen and gawk at what a dork I sound like in audio. Be nice, though – I was nervous! Here is a rundown of Dave’s show for this week: I talk about how I gained 50 pounds in 5 years and how I intend to lose it […]
