A Bunch Of Only Slightly Related Things

October 29, 2009

My morning has already been quite busy, and before I get on with the rest of the day (which will mostly involve cleaning) I simply must share with you these trivial thoughts. First of all, go on over and visit Lauren From Texas for her 6-month blogiversary! She’s having an adorable giveaway. Go ahead, go. I’ll wait. Now onto the randomness. Our dog Eddie hurt her leg last night trying to jump up onto our insanely high bed. She’s not putting any weight on it at all. We’ve been giving her children’s aspirin and trying to get her to rest. This has happened before, and after a couple weeks the leg got back to almost-normal. Here’s hoping it will heal…

SchipulCon and New Friends

October 16, 2009

For the past two days I’ve been attending SchipulCon, which was put on by the company my brother works for. And I’ve gotta give my friend Maggie a ton of credit because she basically put the whole thing together, and it was amazing. I learned so much about social media, personal branding, and blogging that my mind is buzzing with ideas. I’m so looking forward to when I’ll have time to put them into effect. Another fun thing about the conference was that Lauren From Texas came! And no surprise, she’s every bit as fabulous in real life. We also got to meet up with Chelsea from Roots and Rings for dinner last night, which was a total bonus. These…

Random Lazy Day

September 23, 2009

Yesterday was awesome. I got eleven hours of sleep and didn’t change out of my PJ’s until around 5:30 p.m. when I decided to get off my bum and go for a run.It was a perfect way to spend the first day of fall, especially considering the weather was cool and rainy. What did I do, you ask? Well, for starters I caught up on lots of blog reading. I coveted a professional design for my own, thought about and rejected paying for one, and instead placed this book on reserve at the library: I ventured further out into the blogging community by browsing the links of people I follow, and added lots of new subscriptions to my Google Reader….

I’m Attending SchipulCon09

August 20, 2009

My brother is a web designer and head of a creative team at a Houston web marketing/design company called Schipul. One of their clients is the Houston Zoo (check out the awesome website!), and this year Schipul is putting on a two day conference there. I follow Schipul’s updates on Twitter, so I knew this was going on but I didn’t think it applied to me. Then I saw my brother at church and he handed me a bunch of fliers for the conference. He said, “You should come!” I said, “But I’m not a web marketer.” He said, “It doesn’t matter, come hang out and learn about the Internet!” And after I noticed that I could actually get the…

Online Friendships

August 19, 2009

Gah. I have, like, 30 minutes to myself in which to produce some words for you to read here. It’s tough when my weeknights are all committed to something because then I don’t get things done at home and I don’t have the time to do the things I enjoy like blog and read and just hang out with my husband, me and him. So this isn’t very well thought out, but what’s been on my mind lately are these relationships that we forge online with each other. I’ve been blogging for years, and even a few months ago there were very few other blogs I read that I connected to. I read blogs of personal friends (and still do)…
