Earth Day, blogging lessons and Big Data – Friday Link-Ups

Bring on the weekend! It’s been an oddly long week and I just want to get out into the sunshine. Without further ado, hanging out with my favorite Friday link-ups: Oh, Hey Friday, High Five for FridayFriday Favorites and Oh Hot Damn, This is My Jam (add’l links below)!

Favorite Funny This Week

I’ve actually loved this Will & Grace quote for years, and it happened to pop up on one of my social feeds this week. Still funny. Still true.

Favorite New Blog This Week


Blog Brighter, the brand-new venture from Nadine over at East &.

Nadine launched Blog Brighter, with everything a blogger could ever need, or want to know, on this past Tuesday, but has been working on it behind-the-scenes for quite some time. That means? That means there are tons of informative posts already there. Now, I know that there are tons of sites to help bloggers, but I’m already won over by this one. It’s the writing style, but it’s also the tips/suggestions. I spent far too much time last night learning things that have me ridiculously motivated, and still haven’t been through everything she’s offering.

And here’s the proof, if you will: her post on The WordPress Plugins You Need to Start Your Blog mentioned that when replying to comments through WordPress, commenters will NOT be notified of your reply. WHAT???? So I checked with a friend to see if she’d received notification when I replied to her comments. Not a one. F*****! THAT’S JUST BAD BUSINESS!

So, that leads me to an apology and thanks.

I am so sorry if you’ve commented on my posts and have thought I ignored your words. I absolutely love hearing from folks, and have tried to reply to every comment! Please go back and see my terribly witty responses, and give me another chance! I’m working out the kinks RIGHT NOW!

Thank you, Nadine, for this specific tip, and your entire new blog. Love it.

* note: I have no sponsorship agreement, or even casual relationship, with Nadine. I’m just THIS impressed with Blog Brighter. It’s the bee’s. And the biz.

      It was the least I could do after you/your site helped me out in such a major way! (And here’s hoping you get an email alerting you that I have replied to your comment…) 😉
