I’ve been blogging and podcasting for a few years now and with that comes the occasional opportunity to leverage my site as a means for promoting events, people and of course products, but what about Advertising?
How does a single chick like me even get started with Advertising anyway?
Well, SingleEdition.com has the answer! They are building an awesome blog network for singles like me who write about dating, cooking for one, living single, and much much more!!
Are you in?
Learn all about it at SingleEdition.com/Join-Our-Blog I’m really looking forward to being part of this new venture and watching it grow and I hope to see all my single blogger friends doing it too!

I over-share on the Internet. I Tweet, I Foursquare, I Flickr … pretty much every thing that is part of my life gets exposed to the web.
Not everyone is as open as I am. I guess I just have no filters, which is strange because I have always been quite a shy person… well, around new people and in new situations. I know I totally don’t come off that way, but I am.
So when new people come into my life, especially if it’s via one of my social outlets, I expect that they accept this behaviour from me.
I’m not very good about respecting other’s privacy. It’s not even something I consider when I am twittering away about this, that and the other… and certainly not when I am blogging. I just sort of open up a note pad and let my thoughts flow from my brain out through my fingers hoping they hit all the right keys.
I realize this could cause some serious conflicts in my “Real Life” specifically when a guy comes along who may not be so open or willing to be subject matter. My first thought is “Why wouldn’t he want me to talk about him?” I assume he must be hiding something, perhaps other relationships and he is afraid he will be exposed.
It’s just so normal to me that I never think maybe they just aren’t comfortable with strangers reading about how “he did the sweetest thing today”, or “man, he really ticked me off when”.
What is the right approach to take with the people in your life when it comes to social media? Do you ask them upfront if they mind? or at a certain point in the relationship?
I guess I just need a filter. Put in on my Christmas list!

If you’ve been here before then you already see that I’ve done a little spring cleaning. I’d been meaning to update the blog for some time, but my old theme – which I was in total love with – was not widget friendly, so every time I wanted to update the side bar content it meant getting down and dirty with the php.
Well, I finally decided it was time. Found a new theme, added some pretty buttons and then completely killed the whole site!! Oops! Thank gawd I had some backups ready…I guess years of playing Russian roulette with the blogs and podcasts and losing has finally taught me to Backup, Backup, Backup!!!
I’ve still got a few features I’d like to ad, but I am happy with how it’s turned out over all. Now, I should practice the art of posting!!
Thanks for visiting!!
