Pinterest: From social site to promotion and profit

You may have heard me talk about Pinterest before. When I first posted about the “virtual pin board” back in February, I was sort of a newbie. Now, I’m a full-blown addict. And I’m not really ashamed. Enough about my addiction. What I want to talk about is how bloggers and businesses can use PinterestContinue reading “Pinterest: From social site to promotion and profit”

Bucket listin’ and guest bloggin’

I’m strangely calm as the end of the semester approaches. Not only is it the end of the semester, but it’s the end of college. Forever. It only freaks me out if I think about it deeply. I still have some unfinished business left at St. Bonaventure University, and so I present to you “TheContinue reading “Bucket listin’ and guest bloggin’”

New music and sunny skies

I’d practice for myContinue reading “2. Practice doesn’t make perfect, but it works wonders.”

Valentine’s Day

Ok, I know I’ve been slacking. You’ve told me. But trust me, I’ve been productive. I’ve been studying a lot, working, living life, etc. I want to take a bit and reflect on my Valentine’s Day. It was the best I’ve had. I remember passing around paper valentines in elementary school. It was almost mandatory.Continue reading “Valentine’s Day”

Word of the day: somber

SOMBER Do you ever pass over a word several times but the meaning of it remains unknown? I do! I always knew that “somber” meant “sad,” but I never fully investigated its definition. Pete had me proofread a music review of his when I came across this word. “Somber folk,” he wrote. “Somber” means darkContinue reading “Word of the day: somber”

My resolutions for the new year

This might surprise you, but this might be the first time I’ve ever made a list of resolutions. Usually at this time of year, people give up resolutions, saying they never follow them anyway. Having my goals written down always benefits me, so here I go! 1. Cook – Jes and I have been cookingContinue reading “My resolutions for the new year”
