I'm Late to the Instagram Party, But Come Join Me!


How many of you are using Instagram? When I attended the SNAP! conference last year, the cute Jamie from C.R.A.F.T. helped me install Instagram on my iphone. But after I got home, I kinda forgot about it, and I didn't really use it for the rest of the year. Then I started using it again […]

How To Draw Attention to Your Old Content


I don't know about you, but some of my very favorite blog posts are from way back in the jurassic age when only my mom and a few neighbors were reading my blog. I shared my family's favorite recipes, as well as some cool DIY projects. Fast forward a few years, and none of my […]
