Product Spotlight: *A Life Well Read*

Disclosure: D&D Creations, the developers of this product, provided me with a sample for review purposes (the product retails for $29.95 plus shipping). I received no other compensation. I always wanted to be someone who kept a reading journal. I made a few half-hearted attempts, but they never stuck, and I never had much success at keeping records of what I read until I went online, where this blog and LibraryThing both serve that purpose. If I were still looking for a way to keep a reading record, or if I wanted to supplement it with an off-line method, I […]

Time to Blog! (Weekend Assignment #278)

The post where I talk about going to BlogHer’09

This is mine. Too early on Thursday morning, I’m boarding a plane at LAX headed for Chicago, a city I’ve never visited before and probably won’t get to see very much of during the few days I’ll be there. They’ll be filled with activities related toBlogHer’09, this year’s edition of an annual […]

“You’ve Got Q’s, I’ve Got A’s” – Part Two: The Sequel

Welcome back for the second edition of “You’ve got Q’s, I’ve got A’s,” in which I will visit a few more of the respondents to my blogiversary survey and address the questions they left for me. And for those of you who missed – or skipped – the survey the first time around, I’m re-printing it at the end of this post. C’mon, y’all, I really don’t enjoy groveling…but it would make me very happy to see you joining in and responding in the comments here! ** I’m glad that Mike chose to participate. If you’re a frequent visitor, you’ve […]

WG 2009-02: The meaning of “Weekly Geek”(iness)

For our second Weekly Geeks of the new year and our second post without our founder Dewey, Joanne of The Book Zombie has these questions: For those who have been with the group, either from the start or joined within recent months, what does being a member mean to you? What do you enjoy about the group? What are some of your more memorable Weekly Geeks that we might could do again? What could be improved as we continue the legacy that Dewey gave us? For those just joining us, why did you sign up for Weekly Geeks? What would […]
