Happy 10th Blogiversary! – A Decade of Blogging
10years ago today I decided to start blogging. 10 years! Where has the time gone?  Oh, right 1679 posts and 3045 comments, supported by 16,890 flickr photos and countless social media spaces… and of course so many friends and readers! So I am setting myself a challenge, because a Decade of Blogging seems to be a topic that deserves som [...]

Instagram Daily Digest

Travel Bunny at the Cabbagetown Festival
Since many of you aren’t on instagram, and I’ve started using it regularly for sharing what I’m up to, I thought I’d try out a new tool which automatically publishes a digest of the Instagram photos I’ve taken. I’m using a plugin called WP Instagram Digest and we’ll just see if it works. Long-term rea [...]

And We Are LIVE on WordPress!

And We Are LIVE on WordPress!
Yes, I know this is not nearly as exciting for you as it is for me.  But this is my blog, so you have to suffer through my verbal happy dance to get to the goodies like recipes, contests and delightful photos.  Happy Dance, Happy Dance, Happy Dance! A couple of small favours to ask of you my kind and generous readers: If you hav [...]

Geeking Out on BeefInfo.org #LoveCDNBeef
My first official assignment as a Canadian Beef Ambassador is to share with you the parts of the BeefInfo.org site that I like the most. I’m a food geek, and love to have lots of information at my fingertips (and in my head) all the time and BeefInfo.org satisfies a lot of my cravings. The site is really feature-rich, with lots of informati [...]

Restructuring Unsweetened.ca

Restructuring Unsweetened.ca
The Categories are taking over this blog!  While I will refrain from any #Occupy-type jokes or metaphors, I’ve realized that the categorization of unsweetened.ca is a mess!  How do you guys find anything?!?  So it’s time for a little restructuring at unsweetened.ca and I’m hoping you can help by telling me the 3 topics you r [...]

Need a Little Design Help for MiniBookExpo 2008
It’s almost June and you know what that means:  Mini Book Expo 2008!! This year I’m hoping to get more of the publishers involved directly so we can go back to the "Free Book" model which got more books into more people’s hands. (Or at least it did when the publisher’s didn’t drop a request.  [...]

That’s Quite Enough!

That’s Quite Enough!
I’m finally done testing this twitter->blog post tool. Thanks again for your patience and for putting up with a mass of tweets instead of real posts… which our recent couch surfers gave me a lot of grief about. If you have a second, I’d love to hear your thoughts on Twitter and these twitter-posts. Wow, Lex, I love to h [...]

Cool New Blog Toy

Cool New Blog Toy
MyfriendisKate just pointed me towards this cool new little blog widget – post reach‘s ClickComments. It adds a set of icons that let you vote/comment on your opinion of a post.  You can add just the positive icons – (cool)(fun)(insightful)(great find); but I decided to include the negative ones too… (fell asle [...]

Straight from the Source – Do’s and Do Not Do’s of Blogger Relations By Alexa Clark (OneDegree.ca) [Photo by Mondo Lulu] More and more brands, marketing firms and PR agencies are turning to niche bloggers to get the word out about their new product or service. But are they doing a good job? What do bloggers really want? Alex [...]

Indigo Goes Community, Lex Was There

Indigo Goes Community, Lex Was There
I’m delighted to announce that I’ve been invited to write for One Degree.  I’ve been reading One Degree  since Tara Hunt got me hooked.  When Kate Trgovac invited me to write for them, I jumped at the chance. The contributor list reads like a who’s who of Canadian internet marketing. If you are at all interested in wha [...]

Photos Shared, Links Loved

Photos Shared, Links Loved
I figured that I would inflict a little Sunday afternoon ego-surfing on you, since I’m not quite ready to post our notes on Friday’s dinner at c5 for mom’s 65th. (Or ready, even, to decide where to post it – here or on the CETOblog under the "not even remotely a cheapeat" category) Enjoy the photos below.&nb [...]

Monkey see. Monkey do.

Monkey see. Monkey do.
Inspired by andrea’s recent post with the same title (different punctuation), and for my own amusement, I decided it was time to get this blog rated. “This rating was determined based on the presence of the following words: dead (3x) hell (1x)” If I’m getting PG from that, I’m wondering what some of my r [...]

The Apprentice Blog Lives!

The Apprentice Blog Lives!
Yes, it’s true.  TheApprenticeBlog.com is back up and running just in time for the season finale. Over the last 10 weeks, there has been lots of speculation on the Apprentice Views and sites about what happened to the site and why the new owner wasn’t at least leveraging the back links for advertising revenue.  Whether [...]

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 [...]

Spam, It’s What’s For Lunch (#65 Rope Friends In)
I’ve been inspired again by Maggie Mason.  She has started a series of Spam Header Posts where she lists some of the more interesting & amusing spam headers she has been getting. I too have been playing with the idea of spam headers as fodder for blogging.  Specifically I’d love to see the real content for some of th [...]
