Web Weekend #11

Whew. It’s been another rough one. I’m gearing up for my Grand Re-Opening on Tuesday so I’ve been crazy busy. I’m actually going to open in a few stages. This week, I’ll be debuting jewelry.
I’m still at 363 this week. Weirddd.

Web Weekend #10

Double digits! This was one of those weird weeks, where it seemed to fly by but drag on forever at the same time. I have been stocking up for my Grand Reopening at my Etsy shop on May 1 (I’ll be posting more about that later this week), so I spent a lot of time AFK.
I’m at 363 this week – I went way down, but most of those were “haven’t been updated in months” culls. (Speaking of which, does anybody know what happened to Allie Brosh? [No I didn’t delete her.])

By the way, it’s Earth day! I hope you all enjoyed a lovely day off, hopefully enjoying our planet. If you’re interested in earning rewards for your green actions, come join me at Recyclebank! It’s easy and free. 🙂 (Disclosure: I get points if you sign up from my referral link.)

Web Weekend #7

Hey there! I’m a bit late, but I’m here! I completely defeated my Reader backlog over the last week, but I was so busy yesterday that I wasn’t able to put this roundup together.

I’ve got a whopping 376 subscriptions now. I’ve also gained a number of new followers this past week, so HELLO to all of you! Remember you can follow me on Pinterest for nearly-daily flailing and excitement.

Just a quick reminder of my process here since I’ve got so many newbies. As I read through my subscriptions, I pin, I share to my friends, and I star (a Reader feature). When the time comes for a roundup, I look at the list of my starred items and scan through it, looking for the best of the best. The things I really liked, that I really want to do or try, or that I just think were so awesome that everyone needs to see it.
This isn’t like some link posts you may see, where I’m just sharing my friends. Most of the things I link to are by people who don’t even know I exist. No cronyism here.
ENJOY!
