Today: 15000th photo to Flickr, and my 9th blogiversary.
Today marks the 9th anniversary of my personal blog – unsweetened.ca (yes, this one!) The photo above is also the 15000 photo I have loaded to my personal account on Flickr. Yes 15000! If I ever wonder if I’m producing enough, this just answered it for me. Though I have a backlog of photos, posts and ideas just bursting to get ou [...]

I Blog A LOT!

I Blog A LOT!
I’m in the process of moving unsweetened.ca from Typepad to WordPress. Yes, I have caved. In fact, the next blog post you see from unsweetened.ca may just be on wordpress.  You shouldn’t notice much of a difference. But check out this boring photo. Notice the last import line? 1415.  Importing post Day 1 – On the Road Again… [...]

More miniBookExpo Titles Released

More miniBookExpo Titles Released
Getting the books up onto miniBookExpo for Bloggers is going slower than I hoped, but the work is worth it since books are already starting to get snapped up.  Claim it - Read it – Blog it.  Here are the titles that got added yesterday: Delible [Anne Stone] Eye of the Dream [Elizabeth Sinclair] Extreme Care [...]

Not Wanted In The Bio

Not Wanted In The Bio
Yes, I’ve just been through another round of bio-writing**. You’d think that once you’ve written one bio, you’ve written them all.  But it’s not true.  Especially for someone with a portfolio-style career like mine has become. You need one for your books. Another one for your food blogging . Yet another one for y [...]

Inspired To Procrastinate

Inspired To Procrastinate
Very recently roro tagged me to spill 5 reasons why I blog. In my attempt to respond to her tag, I’ve been delving my depths (what depths there are) and checking out other people’s response to this.  I have to say, I’ve been impressed with their honesty and insight into why they and others blog: roro‘s answered the q [...]

The Apprentice Blog Fired?

The Apprentice Blog Fired?
Some of you may know that for five seasons of The Donald, and one season of Martha, I ran TheApprenticeBlog.com.  With a little nudging, a quiz asking Which Apprentice Are You?, and regular commentary about the business lessons and the candidates' performance, I built a healthy… nay… huge active reader base.  [...]

Cuz he's - Close - To - The - Edge...]  Sure, sure, by leaving comments or blogging about this or spreading the word like wildfire you c [...]

#101 Cocktail Hour

#101 Cocktail Hour
I’ve realized, in my post-wine haze, that Maggie missed a blogging idea, one that is ripe with creativity. You’ve heard of drunk dialing, haven’t you? Well let me introduce you to its Web2.0 cousin – pissed posting  (also known as bombed blogging and wrecked writing.) While you might not build a following, you’l [...]

A Post A Day Keeps The Wookiees Away – NaBloPoMo
November has long been known as National Novel Writing Month.  I’ve considered participating for the last 3 years, but I’ve always been working on a book at the time. Of course, I’m working on a book right now, but this National Blog Posting Month seems to be a bit more achievable.  (aka NaBloPoMo) Especially with my earlier [...]

WotS Blogging Toronto 4ways

WotS Blogging Toronto 4ways
I spoke as part of Word On The Street‘s Blogging Toronto Discussion Panel. All the other panelists: Tim Shore of BlogTO, Rannie Turingan of Photojunkie.ca, Sarah Hood of Unknown Toronto and the panel moderator Matt Blankett of Spacing Magazine, all brought cool swag which they shared with the audience (and me!) The panel went well, tho [...]

QotD: Reach Out

QotD: Reach Out
Is there a friend who you owe a phonecall or email? What’s stopping you? Seriously? I don’t think is there a friend who I *don’t* owe a phonecall or email or coffee or lunch or dinner or… I suck at keeping in touch.  Why do you think I have a blog?!?!

Hey guys, As I wrestle with what Vox will be for me, I am leaning more and more to providing a consolodated view of my blogging here, here and elsewhere. Like others, I would continue to do Vox-specific posts and the QotDs (when they aren’t too invasive), but the rest would primarily be an intro with a link to the full post on unsweeten [...]

Naming Conventions

Naming Conventions
I suck at coming up with nicknames but it’s important not to embarrass my friends unduely when telling tales online… er… I mean to respect the privacy of the people I’m hanging out with. That’s why when Creampuff told me about the brilliant Star Trek naming convention, I jumped all over it.  Here’s how it [...]

What is Vox to you?

What is Vox to you?
Many of the people I know who are using Vox already have and maintain popular blogs – personal and professional.  But Vox has been attractive and/or interesting enough to draw us over to check it out. My friend Kate notes that she is “writing a comparison between Vox and other mainstream oriented blogging software.” Vox is s [...]

QotD: You’ve got to blog!

QotD: You’ve got to blog!
If you could get someone in your life to start a blog, who would it be and why? Gerry!  In fact, I’ve gone so far as to set him up a blog – www.spunkymonkey.com (correction – www.spunkymonkey.CA,with apologies to those who went to the porn site) and got him a laptop.  Hey, I even point out amusing little bloggable comments [...]
