Within the Trenches – Dispatch Stories Episode 1

A while back I posted on the show’s Facebook fan page regarding dispatch stories and guest posts. Up until about a week ago I had not received anything but recently I met a fellow dispatcher who was more than willing to share her story.

The transition from WordPress.com to WordPress.org has been an experience. I lost a few things as well as the ability to automatically send out emails to my subscribers. I went from 153 to 0.

Tech Thursday – Quench Your Musical Thirst With Drinkify

Hello everyone and here's your second shot of Tech Thursday on Jabber Log! This interesting item was found through a StumbleUpon search yesterday before doing my homework. I had been brainstorming on topics for my assignment and listening to some tunes when I got a headache. I decided to take a break from my work and began searching through StumbleUpon. I landed on a website called Drinkify. The web site has a retro look to it and in one spot it says, "I'm listening to" followed by a blank. Underneath Read more [...]
