What I Learnt from the Probloggers Webinar: Ten Things I Wish I Had Known About Blogging When I Started... - se7enDecember 5th, 2012 · 6 Comments It is no secret that I really enjoy the Problogger’s Webinar Series… And today’s webinar: Ten Things I Wish I Had Known About Blogging When I Started… was no exception. The Problogger is celebrating ten years of blogging this week and his webinar was a great peek into the world of a Problogger. He began with the story of his blog and and was quite happy to share what worked and what didn’t work with his followers. His basic premise is that “Blogging isn’t rocket science” and “Success doesn’t happen overnight.”
Hey guys! It’s Wednesday and you know what that means: time for another edition of Industry Hump! Last week we talked about the top mistakes bloggers tend to make and how to avoid/correct them.
Our homes are an extension of who we are: what we do within the walls of our abodes shapes our mood, affects our productivity, and influences our outlook on life. Scientific studies have shown that we can have an impact on our happiness by adjusting the tiny little habits and routines that constitute our daily lives — we are, in fact, in control of our outlook on life. It's amazing how a few tweaks to our daily habits can become a catalyst for meaningful, positive change. Here are a few simple things you can do every day to feel happier at home. 1.
I just wrapped up a digital media kit for The Blogcademy (we’ve been super busy this month between putting this together and launching our updated website!) and I’d like to shed a bit more light on media kits overall. One of my most popular articles ever on this blog was a press kit how-to.

Here's a "photo story" based on the book, Fairy Tales Can Come True (Just Not Every Day!) , published by Shake It! Books .
Penny Arcade is, hands down, my favourite vintage store in Toronto. Nestled in among dingy-looking storefronts on Dundas West just west of Ossington , the long space feels welcoming the second you walk in, with purses and gloves and ceramic knick-knacks crowding the high shelves, end-tables covered in glasses, and a comfy couch where you can peruse a book about sharks while noshing on jellybeans. "I want people to be able to come in and sit around and hang out, and not necessarily have to buy anything," said Sheehan, who furnished the space with vintage pieces and kitschy bric-a-brac that mirrors the cozy aesthetic of her own home.
House of Vintage was one of the city's best vintage stores before it closed a few summers ago , but vintage-hounds can rejoice this holiday season as the shop has reopened in Parkdale and is better than ever. Owner and man-about-town Dennis Adamidis ran the first incarnation of the House of Vintage on Queen Street West for five years (I bought a full Louis Féraud skirt with a charming teal fossil print there). When he felt it was time to throw open the doors once more, Parkdale was a natural choice--he's a resident himself. The new space is just as inviting as the old one was--the store has exposed beams and glistening wood floors--all the better to display Adamidis' boots, high-end pieces, and excellent men's section. The House of Vintage is a great place to head if you're in the market for a tony showpiece to class up your closet.
Things to do! :)

Have fun with The Webtender's collection of drinking games, but be extremely careful if you play any these games, especially the ones with high buzz factors. The collection was created as an aid to responsible adults who know their limits (and not to cross them) when it comes to drinking, and not to promote this kind of drinking behavior. You should of course be of legal drinking age if you want to play these games with beer or drinks, but anyone can play these games with non-alcoholic beverages as well. To view an entire collection of Drinking Games and more visit The Webtender : http://www.webtender.com/ And remember, always drink responsibly!
