blogging with amy


There are very few things that have impressed me, lately. Call me jaded, call me elitist, call me a snob. But if, like me, you have seen the massive quantity of utter gibberish out there in cyberspace, you're probably unimpressed too, you jaded, elitist, snob!

But there I was surfing the net about ebooks (do we still say that? am I supposed to use trolling for all web viewing activities now to sound cool... or is it hot, or da bomb? I CAN'T KEEP UP!), which led me to more dribble and more people peddling their bullshit guides and how-to's, and then, tadaaaaa!

she has yet to make a drawing expert outta me. if you think it's easy, you try it

Not only does she know her stuff (the woman makes like 2-3 grand a month just from her little free blog), she is thorough, meticulous and detailed. Yes, I am aware that all of these adjectives mostly mean the same thing, but it bears repeating because she is that good. And generous! Did I mention that most of her wisdom comes at the cheap, cheap cost of zip, zero, zilch dollars?


That's why she gets her own button on this blog 
(see right side of page)

(a little lower, please)
(see it?)
(good!)
(now use it)


What I have loved so far (the snipping tool demo shown above was just the tip of the iceberg):

Talk about great content! I spent most of the day linking -- out and in-- from her website to all the software, cool gadgets, and sites she recommended, most of which were free or had a nominal fee (manna from heaven for a blogger on a budget), and some of which I had never even heard of, even though I'm not a complete newbie (or as was just recently pointed out to me, a n00b).


Amy Lynn Andrews, I have the biggest girl crush on you! 
(You have been warned.)


What has impressed you lately?

I know!!! I have been sitting at my desk for three days straight building a new website/blog based on her suggestions. There's a LOT to get through.

And you're welcome :)
