Sometimes you don’t need freshly cooked papadams. Sometimes you just need to get a bunch of them on the table for your family. Or you might need to munch on them while you binge-watch Netflix. Either way, tasty. Should be a thing.

Introduction

For work I'm a freelancer writer and editor at MakeUseOf.com and occasional other places, plus I sing in a trio called Lotelles on the side (and the trio also sings with the Monestier Big Band).

I also write lots of my own blogs. The more professional blogs are Net Savoir, Vegemite Croissant, Bootstrap Your Life, Stage Left Events and my portfolio is at AngelaAlcorn.com. Personal blogs and other randomness about me can be found at Alcorn.id.au, Smange, Twitter, Facebook.

I share a lot of stuff I find online. For the best stuff, check out Del.icio.us, Cloud pics, Smange's food lust, my YouTube favourites and Pinterest. Flixter will show you movies I'm watching, Goodreads will show you what I'm reading, while Last.fm will show you what I'm listening to.
