Pie, anyone?
Blog post at The PinterTest Kitchen : If you blink, you'll miss apricot season. Which is a gosh darn shame because I just hear the word apricots and my mouth starts watering.[..]

10 Things I Absolutely HATE About Your Negative Headlines - advice for  #bloggers  
Negative headlines can be really effective...sometimes. Before you pen that less-than-positive post, make sure the negative headline is the best choice.

#Bloggers - I posted this huge resource today. I hope you find it helpful!
Link building is out. If you aren’t focusing on link earning in 2014, you’re not doing your content justice. Recently, I wrote about the importance of guest posting, despite Matt Cutts’ proclamation that guest blogging is dead as a link building technique. But Matt’s post brings about an interesting question: If guest posting, the backbone …

My fave pic from #NMX! It was a great moment. Brad Wyman from +FundAnything is a total rock star and +Penn Jillette of course needs no confirmation from me that he's freakin' awesome.

Love this video. Do we spend so much time on our phones that we miss living in the moment? Or does the ability to connect via our phones make our lives better? I can see arguments on both sides. What do you think?

My review of PicMonkey: http://allisonboyer.com/picmonkey-review/ This is seriously my #1 favorite online tool. I would pay five times the price for the premium account! (And the free version rocks too, for the record.) Anyone else out there love PicMonkey too?
I’ve already mentioned on this blog how much I love PicMonkey as a photo editor, but I wanted to sit down and do a more formal review of the product. Although this is the right tool for me, it may or may not be the best option for you. So, without further ado, let’s talk …

Blogging is important...but something else is more important...
I am blogging’s biggest fan. I believe every business should have a blog. To me, blogging is more important than social. If blogging had a cheerleading squad, I would be on it. Well, let’s be honest. I would try out, but I’m nowhere near coordinated enough to actually be a cheerleader. I digress. The point …

2013 has been an extremely challenging year in my life. I moved to a city where I knew no one, went through my boyfriend's second deployment, felt helpless watching a family member deal with health problems, and took on additional stressful projects at work with little additional reward.

Yet, I think 2013 was also a great year in my life. I traveled to Dublin, Disney, Alabama, and of course Pennsylvania. I saw my sailor come home unharmed and my family get through health problems. I made new friends and stayed close with old ones. I networked with a-listers in my industry and am proud of the work I did.

2014 is going to be challenging as well, as both Jeffrey and I are making major career changes and the future is unknown. But I think it will also be a great year as we move into job where we're happier and continue to build relationships with the people we love.

Maybe that's what life is as an adult. Every year is a challenge, but if you rise to meet those challenges, your year can also be great. It's about painting the roses red, no matter what, and seeing the silver lining, always.

Bring it on, 2014.
