My personal rules of Instagram 1)No more than 1 photo every few hours. (NO SPAM) 2) Only HQ photos- if they don't look goo pre-edit they don't go online! 3) limit the filters. I like to try to post a few #nofilter photos a day. 4) NO QUOTES/GRAPHIC/STOCK images. If you didn't make it yourself, it has no right being in your profile. Add text all you want, but it better be 100% YOU. 5)be creative- if you're going to post your food do it in a fun way, make the photo interesting! 6)Comment often- instagram needs a messaging system but until then- introduce yourself to your followers/ees and talk about things! and a rule I think is good for everyone to remember: The Internet is Forever.
If you don't want your mom, grandma, future employers, colleagues, children and teachers to see the photo- keep it to yourself.
Thinkgeek shopping is a delightful experience. Dorky and hard-to-find products abound, and the descriptions are roll-on-the-floor funny. Customer service always hits it out of the park too. They are active online, in touch with their demographic and always helpful with problems. Prices are high for the quality of the items. I've never been outraged but the quality but very few have ever impressed me. Shipping is also pretty expensive, but that's par for the course with online boutique shopping. If only coupon codes came out more frequently and in varying amounts. I've seen the same Spend $50, get free shipping and BOGO Plushie ones forever.
As a freelancer I love Dropbox. It's two pluses over Google Drive is 1) older less technological savvy users can understand it and 2) no need for recipients to have a gmail account.
That being said, since I'm not willing to pay for the service the space gets used up quickly. Even with the free storage you can earn (up to 16gb) that is gone if you sync your photos and videos PLUS work files.
I'll keep on using the service but it works best for me as a large file transfer instead of a cloud storage system. OH! and favorite feature- files aren't immediately deleted from the cloud, so if some bozo in a shared folder deletes something, Dropbox has a backup!
Need large amounts of prints cheap and fast? Snapfish is perfect. Need a small amount of prints and want quality? go to Shutterfly. For photobooks, which is what I use most often, Snapfish does have great deals (b2G1) but the quality and level of customization isn't even CLOSE to Shutterfly. I keep my snapfish account simply for the quarterly/bi-quarterly free prints. for free I can deal with sub-par printing and flimsy paper.
I still prefer my totally un-green un-natural chapstick when my lips are bad, but this felt nice. The stinging, I was lead to believe, is part of the moisturizing effect? Every chap stick I've used has had some level of stinging when my lips were dry. the smell was minimal and it tastes like slightly honeyed wax. It didn't last very long though and I was reapplying all day.
I didn't have any issues like other reviewers, it smells GREAT, goes on clear and lasted just as long as the non-organic cheapo stick I was using before. it is NOT an antiperspirant, just deodorant- so beware of that.
