10years ago today I decided to start blogging.
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 [...]
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 [...]
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:

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 [...]
The Categories are taking over this blog!

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. [...]
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:
If I’m getting PG from that, I’m wondering what some of my r [...]

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 [...]
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 [...]
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.
