So some days we want to be helpful, and some days we just want to sit around and bitch. Which is why Amy will be bringing Crazy Bitch Tea to the next recording session – thanks so much to the ladies who make it for recognizing us as their bitchy target demographic and sending us some!.
So what are we harping on this time? From handwriting to people who think technology is the devil’s work to intrusive ads, we getting it off our chests.
We love Mabel’s Labels! Wait, that wasn’t a complaint. But we’re complaining about all the stuff kids have to bring to sleepaway camp.
Heidi mentioned a new site called Altly, which is supposed to be like facebook, but with privacy settings you will actually understand!
Common Sense Media is developing a Digital Driver’s License – we love this idea, and so does Bill Clinton!
Amy doesn’t know what to do with comments. Do you answer every one? Do you end each post asking for them? Do you beg for comments on twitter and facebook? What do you do when comments get nasty? We want to hear how you handle comments on your blog.
And oh, the no-follow attribute! Back in the day (2005) google decided that it was going to get rid of comment spam by making sure that spammers got absolutely no SEO benefit in the google search engine by getting their spammy comments posted on sites and blogs. (Read here for a much better definition of no-follow than Amy was trying to give on the podcast.) However, lots of people think the whole idea sucks.
Heidi, who is pretty much incapable of complaining and being mean (and we love her for it!), gave a golden halo to Little Passports.
And Nancy must have used up all of her bitchiness earlier because she gushed about the ease of starting a blog with Weebly.
You can listen to the podcast below, or subscribe on iTunes. Don’t forget to give us a great rating!
We’d love for you to weigh in! Leave a comment, we’ll talk back.
And to all of you who complained about only being able to leave a comment on facebook and not on our website…we listened. You can now leave a comment anywhere, we’re just glad you’re commenting!
