In case you haven’t heard the news, there’s some great news on the wind.  Pinterest has finally caved and is now allowing people to use Pinterest hashtags!  From what I’m hearing they are saying use a FEW hashtags, like 4 or 5 rather than the 30-ish ones we’re used to using in Instagram.  So you’ve […]

How to Create Group Boards and Why You NEED Them

Joining other people’s group boards on Pinterest is very important.  But I think it’s almost MORE important to have group boards of your own.  Why?  Well, for one thing, you can be kicked off other people’s boards, but on your own boards, you can pin whatever you like as often as you want.  Also, it […]

I really HATE Instagram – Wanna Know Why?

I am starting to think I am the ONLY person in the world who absolutely HATES Instagram.  Everyone else seems to just LOVE it, but quite honestly, I just DON’T GET IT.  I do have an Instagram account, because I’m a blogger and I more or less have to, but I never know what to […]

Is Your WordPress Site Backed Up? I Thought So Too

If you run a WordPress blog or website, like I do, you know that having your data secure is critical to keeping your site up and running.  I worry about hackers, but most often, I’ve broken my site all by myself!  That’s why I am very careful to make SURE my site is always backed up. […]

Simple Trick to Eliminate Library Fines

  I LOVE books.  I mean, I really LOVE books.  Before I discovered the interwebs and all the temptations therein, I used to read 3 or more books per week.  These days, I don’t read as much, but I still squeeze it in as often as I can.  Because I’m thrifty (or cheap – that […]

My Blog is Making the WordPress Switch

I have been thinking about this for literally years and I’m finally to move from Blogger to self-hosted WordPress.  I’m actually pretty tech-savvy, but I’m smart enough to know when I am over my head, so I’ve hired a company called Blogelina to handle the transition.  Fingers crossed that it will all go very smoothly.

Pinterest is such a big tool for maintaining a blog – its the one platform you really can’t afford to ignore, or even to not use to its full potential.  Kind of like the 800 lb gorilla of the blogging world.  Like most bloggers, I get at least half my traffic from Pinterest. There are […]

Save Money – Get a WATER ALARM

I am always surprised when I find that most people have not heard about a water alarm.  These things are BRILLIANT and have saved our bacon more times than I can count.  Water damage can be very expensive.  We’ve had water in our basement at least 10 times now from either our washer, our water […]

Life Hack – Manage Your Shopping Emails

Do you know when you buy stuff these days, they no longer ask for your phone number.  Instead, they’ve started asking for your Email address.  Gotta love marketing.  If they can’t get to you one way, they’ll find another.     However, keep in mind that you have a choice.  My standard answer to either question […]
