by Meredith on March 9, 2011 · 10 comments

I am not a great photographer. Most of what I’ve learned has come from Googling my DSLR and playing with buttons. However, you may have noticed that some blogs out there have professional-grade photography and this has created a lot of pressure to invest in fancy cameras, lenses, and photography equipment. Bloggers have even hosted […]

After spending almost a year with Blogger I got tired of not being able to add cool customizable features. With Blogger there are not as many options to customize your theme.

Ask anyone who knows me and they will confirm I am a girl whose love of order and organization borders on pathological. I have a to-do list of to-do lists to write. The more precisely organized I am and the better the color coding system I’m using, the happier I am. I also love information. […]

One of the things I do at my current job as a social media & marketing assistant is find bloggers in my company’s niche to reach out to. After all, I know bloggers are all a bunch of discount/free product/try this/fame whores, and now I’m that marketing person who is emailing you to see if […]

Tech Sec: Read What Your Readers Read

Missy talked this week about breaking up with Google Reader, but I suggest you keep it (or get it) and subscribe to one blog and one blog only: your own. The fact is, tons of people use Google Reader, even if you don’t. I ignored this for a while, but then I’d sometimes get comments […]
