What Do you DO For Work

When I first started this blogging venture, it wasn’t something I thought I would really make money enough to live on but I was willing to give it a try and so far it has been paying off both emotionally and financially. Trying to answer that old question “what do you DO for work?” is difficult for me though, you see I was taught that I need to have some elevator pitch but honestly I write and do so much on this blog and write about various other things on my other blog that I don’t think a 15 second […]

Personalized Post-it Collection Review

Post-it Notes have really come a long way from those plain light yellow stickies that we used back in the day. From magnetic shopping list sized note pads you can stick easily on your fridge to folders easily used in the office to put your bills and other notes in, I had thought Post-it had come up with all possible options but they have gone and proved me wrong. The Personalized Post-it collection makes gift giving and marketing a lot easier.   I chose a design that had three flowers on the lower right hand corner because I love Bee’s, […]

POLL – Influence or Reach? What Matters Most?

I work with a lot of companies and public relations people to review products, host giveaways and serve ad space as well. The holiday season is coming which usually means an increase in pitches to your blog, but what it all comes down to is your “stats”. I wonder which is more important; how much traffic you have or how much of an influence you have on others? Reach is great, of course it is amazing to get 12,000 hits plus a month, I was there in January but not there at this time. You see when life changes so […]
