  1. 'Writing engaging posts' - not to sound cynical, but if people need help being able to write engaging material, maybe blogging isn't for them? Why start a blog is you can't write and can't come up with ideas?

    That being said, I'll still keep an eye out on all your stuff. I could really do with reading up on the technical aspects :)

    1. Heh, you'd be surprised. Lol. I've read some really boring blogs out there. ;P

      But seriously, no one can be perfect at everything right? Especially not all the time and most especially not when you first start something. That's what classes and tutorials and lessons are for. Besides, I would bet that even Shakespeare struggled with ideas sometimes - that's part of the creative process and not something any human can help.

  2. This is a great idea, I am always looking to make my blog better, more inviting. I know that I write creatively enough but I believe we can always get better:)

  3. I'm really looking forward to this series! You've got some good topics, and I can't wait to see what you do with them.

  4. I'm looking forward to this series, Jen! You so brilliant!!

  5. What a superdeeduperdee great idea Jen! Coun't me in, I'll be the one in the front of the class-room bugging you with tons of questions! And about the topic of "writing engaging posts", here's my thoughts (whether anyone wants to hear it or not)everyone needs a little help every now and then or maybe even what! And I'm sure there are many katillion (<don't even know if thats a word) reasons why someone starts a blog BUT whatever the's their own. So I feel this is a good service you are offering! Just voicing my thoughts here....Tootles!

I have come to the realization that I may have been mis-typed. I have often taken personality tests and generally come up with the result that I am INFP. I recently took a test that said I was INFJ actually, and the more I have been researching, the more that actually sounds like me.

What it really comes down to is the external/internal focus of the different functions (a topic that I'm still trying to wrap my head around, so I apologize if I don't explain it right). The I--J tends to actually function more as a "Perceiver" than a "Judger", contrary to what you might think (and vice versa for the I--P), which is a common reason these two types are mistaken for each other. How it actually plays out though is quite distinctive, which is why once I started reading more about INFJ's, I realized how much more like me it sounded. Basically, there are...

Vintage Travel Poster

One of our projects this coming term is to do a computer illustration of a painted vintage travel poster. I've been Googling some options and here are some that I like. Which would you pick?

80's Cartoons: Then and Now

I was browsing tv this morning while eating breakfast (tsk, tsk, I know...) and ran across a shocking sight. They've remade a BUNCH of the 80's cartoons, and not very flatteringly at that. I knew about Strawberry Shortcake and Care Bears, but check out some of these other ones, too! As an 80's child myself, I've often wished over the years that those old cartoons would make a comeback, this wasn't exactly what I meant!

Strawberry Shortcake: Then and Now
The 80's Strawberry people were reminiscent of the sugary treats that gave them their names. Now the characters look more like shrunken Barbie dolls.

Care Bears: Then and Now
Care Bears (and their cousins!) used to be a soft, cuddly bunch that liked to stare down bad guys every now and then. Is it just me, or do the new versions have unusually large heads? This somehow makes them look both younger and creepier at the same time.

My Little Ponies: Then and Now As with most 80's cartoons, the My Little Ponies were …
