How JenSpends met Her English Husband

This is a true love, I met my love online, story being shared by Jen from JenSpends. Our story is kind of nerdy. Back in 1999 it was a big deal to have your own personal website if you could figure out how to make one. I spent many hours after school my senior year of high school scanning my art portfolio and uploading it online. G also had his own website where he uploaded photos of his scouting adventures and some poetry he had written. Back then “webrings” were also a big deal. You could join up with groups […]

Charge Clients for Every Work Hour

You arrive for work in the morning at the office and clock into the time clock, from there every minute you work is tracked by your employer. There is no worry about “how many hours did I work” or “did I take my break today” because your employer keeps track of all the small details in their human resource department. When you work from home having the time clock track all of your work hours is not an option, although you can track your own working hours using software like TimeLoc, you still need to be sure to clock every […]

I Am Heading To North Carolina #typeacon

I entered this contest in the beginning of the year to win tickets to Type-A Parent Conference where a friend and me would win conference tickets and our hotel. It was pretty easy for me to enter because the only thing you really had to do was tweet and most know I love Twitter. Let me first start by telling you where my mind has been. I have always had a fear of flying but as I got further into blogging I realized some day I would have to travel. After being invited to an event in LA but not […]

Sharing Big Files Virtually

There are times in my job as a virtual assistant that I have to share large files with clients but sometimes those large files will not go through on my normal email account.

File sharing has become easier and easier with advancing software and technology, making life as a virtual assistant so much more convenient for businesses. Without a file sharing […]

I Want To Be Real Funny

You know that kind of funny where everyone reads it and dies laughing? Well the only funny I get is that late night funny while working and attempting to keep myself and my friends motivated in working. Mainly I am thinking of a situation when I mooned MommaDJane … virtually that is via Skype. Totally cool that you can do that. Anyways … I want to be that kind of funny that isn’t meant to be funny. That sacrastic comment, that stupid moment that makes everyone laugh, that goofy character that can make everyone laugh. The problem is .. I […]

Video Not Showing up In WordPress Blog Post

Jenn from the Blogging Support Group I started and am working on making 100 times better this year mentioned something the other day in our Skype conversations; she recently switched from Blogger to self hosted WordPress and when embedding a video code she was unable to have it show once the blog post was published. Jenn came to the Blogging Support Group chat in Skype for answers. I answered Jenn because I have had this problem and been able to work through it, apparently there wasn’t much online for useful information on this topic & so thanks Jenn for the […]

Blogging Support Group

I have been working on and brainstorming up a wonderful idea! The basic idea behind the Brandy Ellen Blogging Support Group will be to cross promote each other through various places, assist in promoting daily blog posts, and much more! This will include once a week meetings {virtually that is} that will also be typed up by me within 48 hours for those who are unable to attend the weekly meeting. I am sure if you know and trust me you will understand that this is going to be HUGE and a great way to build your brand, blog and […]

Yes We Work From Home

I had a poll live on my site a little while back to find out who works from home strictly and who does both a job outside of the home & work at home. It seems the poll has brought my attention to the fact that out of all the people who took the poll (22 people) that 16 of them or 73% work strictly from home only. It appears that as there are more layoffs and employers stop giving pay increases to their employees that family’s are left to be creative and find a new form of income. If […]
