My Learning Path

I have decided I need to start keeping track of what I am learning about, why I am learning about it, and what resources I am using. I branch off in so many directions that it is hard to backtrack and pick up where I left off. I think a giant infographic would be the most helpful for this task, but for now at least getting this journey down on virtual paper is a good start.

Teach the Web

I have started a 9-week course called Teach the Web offered through Hive NYC and Mozilla. There are a few reasons I decided to join this course:

The 2012 Vitality Box

The second Cravebox arrived in the mail last week and it had some awesome products included. I have been sick for a few weeks, so I was pleased to see that the theme this month (The 2012 Vitality Box, your health inside & out) was exactly what I needed! I haven't used all of the products yet, but the few I have are great.

Monthly Subscription Boxes = Awesome!

New [blank] Of The Month Clubs

Wine of the Month, Cheese of the Month, Fruit of the Month, and many other [blank] of the Month Clubs have been around for a long time. They were a great idea, but times have changed. Don't get me wrong, I love a good wine or cheese, but the new boxes are filling the gap by merging products together with themes.

Unexpected Moments

Tea Parties, Toilets & Parenthood

My daughter loves water. She enjoys any activity involving water, such as:

Bee Themed Birthday Party

"C" turned two just recently and I used her birthday party as an excuse to get crafty. After browsing around on the internet for days I finally decided to do a bee theme. (Her favorite movie at that time was also Bee Movie.) I wanted to post some pictures of the decorations I made and the yummy cake and cookies we bought for her party.

How To Add Your Signature To Gmail

I have had more than one person ask me to help them set up their signature on Gmail. Most people are unaware of how to access the page that allows them to customize their signature and they are also confused about why they are not allowed to select an image from their computer to use in their signature.
