On the other hand, you have unassuming personalities like Emma Watson who are toiling to make their industry and their world a fairer, happier p...

Lend Some Pizzazz To Your About Us Pages

A few days ago, I was pleasantly surprised when a stranger appreciated the Meet Me Page on my personal blog. Her encouragement both amused me and elated me; amused me because I didn't think it was that good, elated me because I ENJOY About Us pages. One of the primary reasons I am putting off the cr...

Want to Become More Creative? Talk to Your Inner Child

Re: 8 Things Everyone Should Do Before 8 am

Hahahhahahaa - yes, there is a glut of such articles!

My point of sharing this was less about 'shoulding the hacks' ;), and more about enjoying the writing! :P

No offense taken, sweet Lany

Do you use mindmaps?

I don't doodle Daphne Grant, one of my favorite bloggers, wouldn't like my confessions. A firm believer of the power of mindmaps, and a recently converted f...

How to Work a Room Like a Pro
