Sittin’ this one out

Blog conferences. Ah! the very thought makes me giddy. I was very privildged to attend two women’s blogging conferences this spring, and a blogger’s party at Sea World a few weeks ago, but the biggest women’s blogging conference ever? I’m sitting that one out. Soooo many of my friends are at BlogHer this week, and while I’m sure I’m missing tons of fun and networking, I’m not too sad cause I have all of you to party with!!

If you’ve come from Robin’s BlogHer Blog Hop, or the fabulous #HomeHer10 linkup at, welcome!! I really can’t wait to meet you! :-) I’ve been rather lonely on this little techie blog the past few weeks. Maybe that has something to do with my recent lack of posts? Oh, never mind that. I’ll be back full swing soon.

Yes, I’m a geek. I absolutely heart all things WordPress. I also enjoy gadgets of all kinds, live and breathe music, and love photography. You’ll find me blogging about WordPress and social networking the most, but I do throw in some of the other stuff, so even the non-blogger may find some things they can relate to! Besides for being a geek-gal, I’m a stay at home wife and mom. My little boy is three and is following in his parent’s footsteps… already pretending to build dot-coms. We couldn’t be more proud. hehe

You can learn a lot more about me on my About page And, while you’re here, be sure to subscribe to my feed so you don’t miss anything!

If you want to be really nice and totally make my day, you can vote for my photo in Rayovac Batteries’ contest so I can win a camera! I’d love you forever. :-)

Please, introduce yourself and link to your favorite blog post! I’d love to come read, comment on, and perhaps stumble upon some of your posts!

Oh! And don’t forget to click on the images in the post to get to the official blog hop pages where everyone is linking up and where you can enter for some fabulous giveaways!!


  1. Wow – a geek. I stand in awe of you and what you do. Seriously. I start hyperventilating when techies speak. I'm so thankful for my own personal 17y/o techie son – I'm not sure how I got him – but I'm so glad I do!

  2. hehe. I started around age 4 and kinda grew up with computers. I
    think a lot of younger people find this tech stuff second nature,
    whereas those who are newer to technology find it hard to grasp. I
    absolutely love building websites and doing graphic design!

    I just checked out your blog and must say, I'm jealous of your country
    living! I'm as much a country girl as I am a geek. I was raised on 200
    acres in the hills of Kentucky and I MISS it!!

  3. Your MIL wouldn't be Susan would it? As soon as I saw your last name things started to click. I worked with her on several editing projects and love her to death! If I'm right – give her a squeeze for me!

  4. YES! I love her too. :-)

    What a small world!!!

  5. Hi #78, I'm #108 from the Blog Hop! :) Nice to meet you… you are way ahead of me in the blogging dept!

  6. Aw, Tara, I don't know about being ahead of anyone in the blogging
    department. I am not a writer, so blogging doesn't come easy for me. I
    prefer to sit in my little corner and hack WordPress code and manipulate
    themes. hehe But, that can get pretty lonely, and how would anyone know
    I do this stuff if I don't blog about it?

    I'm off to visit your site now! This meeting new bloggers is fun stuff!

  7. Stopping by from the Blog Hop! I am headed to 2 conferences this fall so I decided that I couldn't go to Blogher, too. I wish I was a WordPress genius like yourself. I am about to make the jump from blogger and it is rather frightening. Can't wait to subscribe and learn more from you.

  8. Amy,

    Your site is really cute. I'm glad you stopped by.

    What conferences are you going to this fall? Type A Mom and Relevant? Or
    do you happen to be going to Blog World Expo?
    I attended Blissdom and Mom 2.0 this spring and loved them. I'm holding
    out that just maybe I can do BWE this fall. That's probably it for me
    though. I'd have to find a sponsor… I won tickets to the other two and
    carpooled/shared rooms or wouldn't have been able to afford them.

  9. Hi, I'm coming over from the Blog Hop Giveaway post. It's been great seeing so many new blogs. I don't know anything about wordpress. My personal blog is on blogspot and then I do a lot of work in Drupal and have some blogs on drupal sites. As for my favorite blogpost? Argh, how can anyone pick one, it's like picking a favorite child, impossible. But I'll link to one I like a lot at this moment. :)

  10. Yay, another WordPress geek! Nice to meet you too. ;)

  11. Looks like your little guy likes Lighting McQueen as much as mine does! I voted for your picture. Hope you win!!

  12. Thank you! Yes, his whole bedroom is Lightening McQueen/Cars. He owns several of the toys. No one is ever at a loss for gift ideas for our Lil Man. haha

    So glad you stopped by! I am on my way over to your blog right now!

  13. hehe. WordPress Geeks. We should start our own club…

  14. Ohhh, you could be a busy bee with that Drupal knowledge. Might have to introduce you to a few people. :-) I have people ask me sometimes if I do Drupal, or switch from Drupal to WordPress, but the truth is, I don't know ANYTHING about Drupal!

    Thanks for making me a stop on your blog hopping tour!

  15. Stopping by from the bloghop and I blog at “When did I go from a kid to a grown up?” and “Bobbi Babbles”

  16. Just blog hopped in to say hi. I'm a total techie myself (I even work in IT) and I know I'll feel quite at home here!

  17. Oh dear, I'm far from IT dept. haha Actually, my husband works in IT. He's my emergency helper when I get myself in over my head. :-)

    So glad you stopped by! Off to visit your blog…

  18. Glad you stopped in! I'm going to visit you now! This Blog Hop is fun!

  19. Just Hoppin By, Sorry I’m a little late,
    I’m #255 (aka the last blog on the HOP list),
    I am happy to meet you… great blog!
