Online Gaming: My Unconventional Experiment in Marketing

Online Gaming as an Experiment in MarketingI’ve recently started playing an online game in my *cough* free time. Since I have it on my phone, it happens during those moments I used to spend learning something — reading articles I’d saved, checking email obsessively, and similar pursuits. But, I’m having quite a bit of fun with it and I’m testing out some… are you ready… marketing theories! Continue reading

A Writer’s Wicked Review of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3

Review of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3Reviews on new tech are a dime a dozen online. But I’m not going to bore you with a slew of sterile specs on this little device. You can look those up all over the web. What I AM going to tell you is that I’ve been waiting for weeks to review this particular device.

The problem is, I travel light when possible, and although I always have my cell phone, I seldom have a pen and paper quite so handy these days.

My Mother Quilts

One of my mother's quiltsMy Mother is an anomaly. She makes beautiful quilts by hand — pre-machine style.

She’s not unusual because she quilts… or crochets… Not because she embroidered bluebirds of happiness on my pillowcases when I was a child — and a red heart on my undershirt for Valentine’s Day.

Not because she would celebrate every holiday in grand style…even the “smaller” holidays like George Washington’s Birthday (a holiday most people ignored then and lump into the generic “president’s day” now).

It’s the WAY she does things that makes her unique. Continue reading
