Today I had an email (sent from the contact form on my thegrrl.com site) they asked me to change my links from indieblogger.com (which closed in 2007 or thereabouts) to another domain.
Are you sure you want to delete this scoop?
Aahhh, yes. Let’s start a new celebrity movement, one that seeks out people who kick ass in many different ways (who don’t just have a cool haircut, but also intellect and vision.)Let’s also celebrate our own unique thoughts, perspectives and gifts! Let’s focus on genuine qualities in people, kindness, compassion, fortitude, determination, creativity, persistence, vulnerability, etc. Doesn’t that sound better?

Two Step Verification/ Authentification - the process of forcing people to use mobile phones for everything Google.
You can still get verification via a standard voice message here. But, you can not do so with other areas of Google and Google Plus accounts. It sucks, big time! I'm not paying $50 and up each month for a mobile phone I don't frelling want!

When you have done that you do two/three new words or phrases for the next commenter to choose from. Feel free to come back as often as you like. Just have fun.

At the beginning of this year, I created a public Facebook page for my blog, Schmutzie.com. I did it because I wanted to create a more private personal profile so I could have at least one place online that felt less public, a little more sheltered. It wasn't long, though, before I started to regret that decision, because I realized that privacy on Facebook is harder to maintain than it seems, real engagement is difficult to come by on public pages, and Facebook's treatment of public pages has been undergoing a slow evolution that favours advertising money over content and engagement.
I reached a point of having so many pins and not enough boards and I could never, and I mean never, find what I was looking for on my own boards. And since I really try to use Pinterest, at least a fair amount of the time, to collect ideas for recipes I will actually cook, crafts I will actually create, and DIY projects I will actually do, I needed a better system.

I have been blogging for over nine years now, and I've watched it grow from small groups of what felt like dear penpals to the vast, millions-strong sea of blogs we have now. What I find interesting, though, is that, despite all the changes that have happened with regard to weblogs over the last decade, certain questions about what we do come up again and again, and one of those questions is this: what is more important to you, writing well or receiving a lot of comments?
I've said before, Facebook and I have a love/hate relationship. There are a ton of things I love about Facebook, but one of my irritations is the cluttered news feed. I often feel like I miss posts from friends, yet see 20 updates from Target. And don't even get me started on my beef about how many people actually see my Facebook posts from this here blog!
