bookchiq: @LeannaMaxwell and I were brave (for us) and went to the Russian Bear Cafe for lunch. Yummy! Love the blini. http://bit.ly/1A3jKZ
Last reviewed Oct 31, 2008. 2 Reviews. "My sister and I decided to visit today based on the previous review. I had the beef stroganoff and she had a savory blini. Both were good, though I…
bookchiq: Been using Commentful to track comment conversations on other blogs, but it’s unreliable lately. Looking for a replacement. Suggestions?
bookchiq: @tacanderson I’m paying for SurveyGizmo, iContact, Harvest, and BatchBook. Not sure if those all qualify as web 2.0 apps…
bookchiq: @tacanderson Good reminder from @ejhildreth… I use Jungle Disk/S3 as well (and probably will forever, since it saved my bacon big time).
I like the search-by-color feature, particularly that you can combine colors. Very useful when working out an idea.
Free video tutorials are a great idea and a good resource for those learning about the web and computing. Just not sure about the name… to me it says “stupid” and I don’t know why you’d want to…
Seems like the kind of place Keith and Daniel would enjoy.
bookchiq: @jowyang Have you seen Magpie yet? A little different take on the Twitter ad concept (in tweets vs. on background). http://bit.ly/UMVJz
bookchiq: @waded That’s true. :) I’m in a forgiving mood because they gave plenty of advance notice, but it does make it hard to check them out.
bookchiq: RT @northernchick: Today I have decided that when I read a blog I am going to leave a comment EVERYTIME. Do you?
bookchiq: @Neilochka Agreed! I’m just the re-tweet messenger. :) But an interesting idea, and would “force” creativity. Maybe a 1 day/week exercise?
bookchiq: @colorburned Logo design position is freelance for the moment, could expand but that’d probably be a while out.
bookchiq: Hiring a logo designer for ongoing work. If you’re interested, apply here (oDesk login might be required): http://bit.ly/35quz1
bookchiq: I love the absurdity of these mini-interviews with “all-purpose hate-mongers” about who they support for president. http://bit.ly/3rGRti
bookchiq: #magpie build buzz on twitter. post your ads along tweets of
popular twitterers and get heard! http://be-a-magpie.com
bookchiq: @jacestolfo They’re mostly on client sites. One of these days I’ll get around to releasing a few more free ones. “When things slow down.” :)
bookchiq: Interesting to see the various ad schemes that have cropped up around Twitter. Brilliant or spam? Checking out this one: http://bit.ly/UMVJz
bookchiq: Testing out Ping.fm. Is it the answer to network overload? Guess we’ll find out. :)
Every day feeling a little better. Still napping like a… um… cat. Aren’t you glad I just have a cold and not something actually…
bookchiq: Pretty sure I’ve just created a stellar recipe for stuffed mushrooms. Due to my cold, though, can’t really taste them, so could be wrong…
bookchiq: @StephenTiano They’re pizza-inspired. Marinated the mushrooms in Italian seasonings then stuffed with sauce, pepperoni, cheese, onions, etc.
Marginally better today, but still feeling exhausted.
The one potentially exciting thing about today: Leanna and I carved a pumpkin for her apartment’s contest, and it’s being judged…
bookchiq: Just finished my work for the day and feel like I got hit by a bus (I have a bad cold). The mister is riding tonight so maybe I’ll nap.
Meh. Still feeling distinctly like I’ve been hit by a bus. Didn’t sleep well at all, so I’ll probably be working between naps.
bookchiq: Off for more pumpkin carving. This tweet is brought to you by the number 31 and the color orange.
bookchiq: What a nice day! Just got back from a walk with @LeannaMaxwell. We probably looked like intoxicated ducks as we hopped on crunchy leaves.
bookchiq: 1 hour on the phone & the City of LA admits I don’t owe them money. More painful than it needed to be but much better than the legal route!
bookchiq: @mayhemstudios Thanks for the heads-up! I hadn’t seen yet. That’s a great list and I’m thrilled to be on it. http://tinyurl.com/6lhwlc
bookchiq: Getting frustrated with the City of L.A.’s finance office. 1st they try to charge me $5k I don’t owe, now have been on hold for 30 min.
Had a good weekend, but feel like death warmed over this morning. I’m coming down with either a sinus infection or a head cold, and I’m…
bookchiq: My fingernails are vaguely orange from our pumpkin carving extravaganza last night. More carving tonight–hoping the result will be worth it.
Great advice for freelancers. I should be using more of it!
A classy looking diaper bag for the hip mamas among us.
Still alive despite the carrots (and added them to today’s smoothie, too). I can tell you’re relieved.
You might have noticed from my…
bookchiq: @daveredford Fair enough. And amusing because I deactivated both Comic Sans and Papyrus about 2 hours ago because I was sick of seeing them.
bookchiq: Thank you so much for all the font-feedback–I’m tallying like a mad woman. This democratic selection is kind of fun!
bookchiq: @andrewmccluskey One of my many business sites, yes. :) I have another one coming along in the next week or two. (I think I have a problem.)
bookchiq: Anyone have 15 seconds to give me feedback on which font looks best? Leave comments on the picture or @reply me. http://bit.ly/2PboMl
bookchiq: @daveredford LOL. Why not #1? I only ask because it’s leading by a small margin.
