I Should Be Napping
Dear I Should Be Napping, I can’t let you go – you are my oldest blog and you need an overhaul. You’re certainly not part of my portfolio, yet I find you charming in your tacky theme-hacky chic.
In the meantime, I thought I’d scare some of the tumbleweeds away by adding a post with links to some of the writing I’ve been doing elsewhere:
Promotional Products and Social Media
Businesses of all sizes are increasingly aware of social media, but traditional forms of marketing are still very important. This article, written for a promotional products blog, looks at how social media and specialty advertising products can work together. If you are interested in social media’s influence on business (and life in general), I’d recommend Erik Qualman’s book Socialnomics.
Food Truck Festivals
One of my favorite writing assignments, you can read all about my concession stand obsessions at drivinganddining.com. Most recently, I featured the surge in Food Truck Festivals across the U.S.
Online Time Management and Organization
I wrote a guest post for the Knit Wit by Shair for her business boost event – you can sneak a peek into the many online business tools I use to stay on top of my crazy life.
I guess I don’t have much time for crafts any more so I take it out on the kids meals over at our house. I post photos over at my other blog, Mama Brain, when I have the time. Sort of trashy bento for busy moms – and a lot of fun for me and my 2 girls.
If you are a new business owner (or you are planning to be one in the future), I also post to a posterous blog that you might find helpful: Business Basics. If you’re a business owner who is new to social media and just beginning to dip your toes in, fullserve.info can help you get webbed feet.
And last but certainly not least, and part of the reason why I am still relatively sane – my band Mink Valley. Increase the population of Mink Valley by joining our Facebook band page or visit our band website.
