7.13.08 Weekend Update and Link Love

Photo of my wife’s bonnets for sale at the farmers market. She has a booth with several mama friends, selling handmade items, like crocheted hats, felted toys, natural play dough, and a vegetarian recipe “book” called Karuna Kitchen. They call themselves the Wooly Mamas.

Go mamas!

Yes, I’ve missed a few days of posting… I know that all three (ok, maybe five) of my readers are disappointed, so here’s an update-

7.13.08 Weekend Update and Link Love

Life is very full these days. Here’s what’s been happening for me:

I’ve been posting on the Green Options network, to the Eco Child’s Play and Eat. Drink. Better. blogs. You can see my articles here:

If you like them, or know someone who would, leave a comment or pass it on to a friend.

You can subscribe to the RSS feeds to get the latest postings on those blogs. Look for the little orange RSS icon. I publish this feed through FeedBurner, and I like the feature of offering a feed that can be read by many newsreaders.

I use Google Reader to subscribe to blogs and sites that are updated frequently, and then I don’t have to go to the site to check for new posts. I can click through to the blog if I want, to read the whole article or leave a comment, but if the title and summary don’t grab me I can go to the next feed without loading a new page for the next site. If you’re an information junkie like me, I highly recommend Reader.

I have a page on Facebook: Derek Markham

Twitter and Facebook and Plurk are kind of new to me, and they don’t take much time, as I usually update with my cell when I have a spare moment. I’m not online all day long, contrary to popular belief.
