Mrs. Flinger: A work in progress

Fixing Mrs. Flinger Feb 20, 2015

I'm currently working on this website. I want to add back the links to blogs I love, some ways to find content easier, and put in archive, at last, some of the ancient articles. Come back to see updates.

Increasing your reader’s traffic part 1: through comments Jan 09, 2008

#Work#Boost your reader's blog traffic

*What’s this? See below* I was going to list out another slick way to raise your user’s traffic and technorati rank but then I was told it’s the great International Week to Delurk. This means two things: 1) I decided to provide methods of increasing your reader’s traffic through their comments 2) Why not comment and increase your own traffic here and 3) I really don’t comment enough and 4) I can’t count because that’s more than two. So here we go! Expression Engine: One of the first things I got questions about when I first started blogging (four freaking years ago now) was “how do I list the most recent comments? I want to encourage people to comment and I want a list on my sidebar.” Back then, it wasn’t that common. Now,... Read more

It’s been fantastic thinking about something aside from teething, bottles, and entertaining my three year old (read: I type one handed while entertaining a three year old, feeding an infant and calling the pediatrician because why is my child getting fangs and where are his two top teeth? but this is nothing unusual to a working at home mom…) You know those nerds that always say the obvious?

#Life#Good News#The Flinger Family

I hope your Holiday was wonderful. There are so many stories I have for you and announcements about the New Year. Changes. Plans. News. But today I’ll just tell you how we brought in 2008: The year destined to be ours. We’ve planned some wonderful goals for the year, goals that everyone else makes like getting fit and finding ourselves again. But this resolution was made on the eve of 2006, one year ago, when we sat on our couch in our new condo in our new city. We talked, a year ago, about how 2008 would be the first year we won’t be moving, pregnant, having a child, changing jobs, or moving again since our marriage. This year is destined to be ours. We planned on retiring early, even going so far as turning off the lights and crawling in bed. We talked a bit, read... Read more
