Have you met Heather Solos and Angela England?

ShareTweet Many of my friends are up and coming in the blogging world. Two got recent recognition and I wanted to bring it to your attention. First, my good friend, Heather Solos was mentioned, on Problogger with 39 other bloggers to watch in 2011: Her profile has grown organically over the course of five years. She co-founded Home-Ec101.com, “a site designed to teach real people, real skills, as they apply to real lives.” In addition to this, she has gotten a book deal, leveraged in-person meetings to get great results, and has achieved multiple writing spots in newspapers. You can learn more about how she did this in her interview on BlogcastFM. Angela England, founder of Untrained Housewife, whom I was fortunate to meet, in person, at Type-a-mom, was recognized in an About.com … Read entire article »

30 Days of Truth.. Day 10 → Someone you need to let go, or wish you didn’t know.

ShareTweet I won’t mention names, to protect the guilty, in this post. There are a few people, in my circle of life that have proven to be non-trustworthy. I need to tighten my circle do some more remembering with all of the forgiving that I, naturally, do. Being used by anyone is not something anyone should stand for… and I don’t feel I’m standing for it, with a few individuals, I’m just feeling that I’m over-patient. I like to think of the best of people and that these people will come around and be the people I know that they have potential to be.. in the meantime, I lay low to them. I try not to get into situations, with them, where they can use me. Again. … Read entire article »

On the School Front

ShareTweet The first half of this semester just flew by without me really realizing it. 9 weeks already? Where have I been? I picked up two new 9 week fast track courses. One is a continuation of my last keyboarding class, with the same “work” but grading change. I can still make an A for speed if I watch my errors. I have a new keyboard for this machine to see if that will help me some. The second fast track course is computers. It will covers Windows XP and Microsoft Office 2007. I’m a bit concerned because I’m taking Word 2007 over 18 weeks and although it seems to drag out, I don’t know if I can learn it all so much faster. If I was unprepared for that mid-term, last Saturday, … Read entire article »

Online Course disconnections..

ShareTweet I miss Brick N Mortar classrooms.  I feel this disconnection, in my online courses, that I can’t describe. Its like not remembering the professors names, or knowing who’s talking, when I’m reading hundreds of discussions on message boards. Last week’s essays were very religious.  This week’s are full of non-English names and places I can’t pronounce. Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been? by Joyce Carol Oates The Fall River Axe Murders by Angela Carter The Wild Beast by Peter Maass The Damned Human Race by Mark Twain Shooting an Elephant by George Orwell Immortality by YiyunLi It seems like I’m learning History in ENG 101, English in CPT101, and How to break my keyboard in AOT106.  We won’t talk about Marketing.  I still have that text, laying next to me.. more to-do’s.  There is so much … Read entire article »
