Litter Robot Open Air vs. CatGenie

Let’s talk about crap, shall we? More specifically, let’s talk about cat crap. I, for one, do not like messing with the cats’ litter boxes. They smell, they are heavy, they are messy, and the whole thing’s just gross. With four indoor cats, it’s a necessity, however. About five years ago, I invested in twoContinue reading “Litter Robot Open Air vs. CatGenie”

Dear Zoomers

Disclaimer: This might get pissy because people annoy me, and people who insult others while being incorrect really annoy me. My parents were Baby Boomers, AKA “Boomers.” I’m a Millennial/Gen Y. The annoying, “Okay, Boomer,” crowd is Gen Z, or “Zoomers,” NOT Millennials. Saying Millennials are just now reaching the age to join the workforceContinue reading “Dear Zoomers”

UpWork, Fiverr, and Freelancer

Which one is the best? There are so many job or “gig” brokers out there, it’s hard to find the right one. I have used UpWork, Freelancer, and Fiverr, and all three have pros and cons. But which one is best?  Is there a best? I will share my experience with each. UpWork I have beenContinue reading “UpWork, Fiverr, and Freelancer”

Content Mills

Like many, many writers struggling to gain experience and an online presence, I was a victim of more than one content mill. It happens to people in all industries and it’s a disgusting practice that will never go away, unfortunately. What’s a Content Mill? In a nutshell, content mills are basically brokers. They have theContinue reading “Content Mills”

Sex and the City

I’ve been working on my site and trying not to freak out too much over the fact that one of my contracts will be completed soon. I really, really don’t want to go back to transcription. I like it well enough (eh, not really true anymore), but doing it for over 12 years has takenContinue reading “Sex and the City”

I Think My Mom is Picking on My Cat

I think Mom is driving my cat crazy! My youngest, Phineas, can’t see, and he goes around the house crying and looking at the ceiling. He keeps trying to get as close to the ceiling as possible; climbing on the couches and chairs and pawing at the wall. I told hubby that Mom must beContinue reading “I Think My Mom is Picking on My Cat”

New Disability Question on Applications

I have been filling out applications and submitting resumes like a son of a gun and I’ve noticed something. I use Indeed, LinkedIn, and ProBlogger for job searching. Some of the available jobs allow you to apply on those sites, or you follow a link and apply from the employer’s site. Anyway, several jobs IContinue reading “New Disability Question on Applications”

I’m a Hooker With a Heart of Gold

My mom used to crochet. My aunt was the arts and crafts gal, but Mom dabbled. Like any kid, I wanted to do what she was doing and, boy, did she try to teach me! Having a right-hander teach a left-hander (me) something isn’t the easiest! First, she had the brilliant idea to have meContinue reading “I’m a Hooker With a Heart of Gold”

What Will Calm Me Today, Brain?

Do you ever not know what will soothe or calm you on any given day? After my mom died, I watched Frozen every day for months. It had no connection to Mom because it didn’t come out while she was alive, but it soothed me. Regina Spektor has the same effect. She has two songsContinue reading “What Will Calm Me Today, Brain?”
