Browsing: Just Blogging

Blog contests, memes, interviews, photography hunts, random facts… Let’s connect, share some blogging fun and some little snippets of life.

Just Blogging Birds at the Farm, Ottawa, November 2013

Even nature doesn’t like Novem­ber. Trees are bare now, the geese all flew South for the win­ter a few weeks ago and the crops have been har­vested at the Exper­i­men­tal Farm, leav­ing noth­ing behind, just empty fields. Noth­ing? Well, maybe some seeds… and the birds found them.

The “Owls of the Nile” design was cre­ated by Rachel Cald­well aka ThirstyFly, a tal­ented Philadelphia-based illus­tra­tor. I absolutely love the details she included in this art! It’s a truly unique piece.

I’ve seen bed bugs before, mostly in dirty hos­tels in Australia—I remem­ber being eaten alive a cou­ple of times in Mel­bourne. But I kind of expected it. I mean, hos­tels are… well, hos­tels. When the twelve guys in your sixteen-bed dorms haven’t show­ered or done laun­dry in days and when they store food on their beds… you know it’s a bed bug hos­tel. But I cer­tainly wasn’t expect­ing a place like a Trav­el­lodge Hotel (not fancy but decent) to have bed bugs.

This blog is a great way to meet peo­ple, to fuel my pas­sion for writ­ing and pho­tog­ra­phy, to show what I do to prospec­tive clients, to net­work, etc. And it’s always reward­ing to see the read­er­ship grow. But it has down­sides as well. Ear­lier this month, I received an email from Site5, my host­ing com­pany, claim­ing that my resource usage was too high to stay on a shared server plan.

A good year after the trend picked (appar­ently I am not an early adopter!) I decided to try one of the many “sub­scrip­tion box” ser­vices. Why not? I love receiv­ing mail and if the enve­lope can con­tain sam­ples rather than another let­ter from my bank press­ing me to apply for a credit card, I’m all for it.
