Blog Pop Spring Fling: Dooney & Bourke

Welcome to Day 2 of the Blog Pop Spring Fling event, hosted by Momma Told Me!

Because I’m sponsoring Day 2 of the Spring Fling giveaway, I’m gonna play all fast and loose with this space. Since we’re celebrating Spring Fling with a bunch of great giveaways, I thought I’d stick with the spring theme. [...]

Fine-tuning your Social Media Strategy

Bloggers (and brands, of course) are always trying to figure out the perfect social media strategy to get their content out there, to get it in front of as many people as possible, and, of course, to get it to rank high in Google searches.

While Facebook has been a major [...]

The Daylight Saving Time change: Why we do it

One thing I know for sure about the Daylight Saving Time change (also known as Daylight Savings Time) is that I’m “off” for a few days after I lose that hour’s sleep.

According to some, George Vernon Hudson is credited with the time change we are currently familiar with, having introduced [...]

50 Facts About the Winter Olympics

For possibly the first time, I have been glued to my TV, watching the 2014  Winter Olympics. I never really “got” the hype about the Olympics but this year I have been awestruck by the figure skating portion. Now I totally “get” it…the excitement and all the hullabaloo about the Winter Olympics. But when [...]

10 Things to do with Stale Bread

When my kids were little, bread never went stale. It seemed like I constantly was making cinnamon toast or peanut butter and jelly sandwiches or French toast. But now with just two adults in the house, we find that, in general, a loaf of bread goes stale before we finish it. [...]

Be Our Valentine: The History of Valentine’s Day

I have to say, as far as Valentine’s Day goes, I can’t think of a more perfect gift for one of my readers than this…

Isn’t that adorable? What a great piece of jewelry for Valentine’s Day! It’s the Love Birds Necklace, designed by Ghost Love — [...]

History of Social Media

It’s hard to imagine a world without the convenience of technology and electronics and social media. Granted, the “history of social media” is a relatively short one, in the grand scheme of things. But it’s terribly important…and it’s growing and progressing by leaps and bounds, seemingly every day.

I can personally attest to an [...]

Most dangerous Jobs in America

You probably have an opinion on the most dangerous jobs in America. I know I do…and I’m going to hazard a guess that most of them aren’t listed on this infographic of the 10 Most Dangerous U.S. Jobs.

I was a tad surprised at what was listed — and what wasn’t:

Why Sleep is Important

January 3 is “National Sleep Day.” Every day, though, should be a sleep day. Sleep is important…for a variety of reasons. Seriously. I often have trouble sleeping — and I’ve even had nights when I don’t sleep at all (although they uncommon, thankfully) — and it’s unpleasant, to say the least.

When I [...]

Events of 2013: An Infographic

It’s that time again…and you can expect an avalanche of “Top 10″ (or perhaps “Top 13″ to be clever and tie it into 2013) lists of this year’s most talked about/most interesting/most outrageous//most important/whatever people, news stories, and events of 2013.

While not perfect (what is, after all?), I thought this graphic did a [...]
