Last weekend was crazy busy full of fun stuff but one of the highlights was getting to check out the latest Shag art exhibit at the Jonathan Levine Gallery. I am such a huge fan of Josh Agle ("Shag") and make it a point to see whatever shows he has going on in New York. His work is colorful, it's retro, it's kitsch, lots of it is very tongue-in-cheek, and some with dark humor. His work is perfection in my... Read more

My sneakers were pretty old so I had to get some new shoes and... Read more


Whoa! Okay, that title is quite a statement and giving Buffer some props but stay with me. In addition to reworking the SEO for my Etsy listings, I've stepped up promoting my listing on Twitter. The mistake I made in the past was not sharing the same tweets enough. Maybe a couple of tweets throughout the same day the item was posted and that's it. I thought anything more would be spammy. That was foolish. I wasn't adding enough of... Read more
