Three kids, two adults, two planes, one layover, one iPad, two iPhones, one Baby Bjorn, one Ring Sling and a whole lotta’ praying… I’m off to Idaho with the sis for the week. I’ll be here when I’m here but I’m not promising much of anything, except the Friday link up. Because I sure wouldn’t want to miss that!
Have a happy weekend & don’t forget to Spring your clocks forward tomorrow!!!

In reply to a friend who asked how I stay organized while blogging, here are my tips and tricks.
Today’s installment of my blogging tips & tricks will address Gravatar & Dropbox. If I’m all of a sudden speaking Klingon then strap in because these are two things you want to hop on real quick.
This is in fact a Word Press, self hosted site. Which means that your awesome Blogger avatar won’t show up here. Bummer, I know, but there is another way and that super awesome way is called Gravatar. By setting up your Gravatar account you create a Globally recognized avatar that will then be shown on all Word Press blogs and other open source platform sites. Gravatar was afterall created by the co-founder of Word Press itself so it’s super legit.
Oh you guys, if you haven’t discovered Dropbox yet, you are in for a real treat. It is THE easiest way to get your images, documents, videos… from your phone to your computer, facebook, twitter, blog, instagram… wherever, whenever you want.
And visa versa.
It’s cloud based so whatever you put in your drop box on your computer will show up on your drop box on your phone, or your ipad or whatever internet connected device you have Dropbox installed and running on. It does eat up hard-drive space, because all files are actually on your computer, but in the cloud all at the same time. So you can access them online too via the dropbox.com website.
And, It’s FREE, up to 2GB. Plus, you can earn more free space by referring friends. So hey, maybe if you go sign up you should give me a little nod eh? Who doesn’t love more storage space!
Next time we’ll talk about how I organize files, because that can be such a headache! I’m no pro, but I sure do like to pretend.
