Highlighted Blog #26 – Annezazu

Another blog from another colleague. I truly have the best colleagues. Just sayin’ :). Anne is a powerhouse nomad who is one of my heroes in life. Her dynamic brilliance is ever focused on making life better for others. Amazing.

My card got declined today while grocery shopping. It was ironic as I have been “home” in San Diego for an extended period of time yet still somehow managed to set off alarm bells with some bot overlord in charge of tracing fraudulent activity.

Highlighted Blog #7 — Hannah Vanderpool

One of my favorite parts of my job is seeing all the different sites people create. Sometimes I’m helping someone with a site. Other times someone shows me a site as an example of what they are looking for, and still other times I chance across sites in the Reader. So I get to see tons of sites every day. Serious job perk.
