InkedMatch.com Logo

Tim and I are working on a new website: InkedMatch.com, which will be launching soon!

The concept of InkedMatch.com:

“The hottest place to find a tattooed date, models, and artists. Check out designs and show off your latest body art. Locate the best artists in your area.”

InkedMatch.com has been invited to exhibit at NY Tech Day, April 25, 2013. You can see details of the show at http://nytechday.com and see our listing at https://nytechday.com/exhibitors/inkedmatch-com.  This is an extremely important opportunity!  We will meet investors and all the major tech press.

To help cover the expenses for InkedMatch.com’s trip to New York City (in addition to advertising, materials needed for the event, etc.), we have started a fundraising campaign on Indiegogo, which you can see here:



Tim and I would be eternally grateful if you could like and/or share our campaign link, and, of course, if you are able to contribute (we are offering some pretty cool perks for contributions!).

You can find InkedMatch.com in the following places:

Thank you for your support!

One of my dear friends gave me this beautiful plant for my birthday. I’m not sure what kind it is.

Happy Wednesday!


Dean’s List

February 7th, 2013
Posted in Awards, College, Family, Friends, Life, School, Tim | 1 Comment »

I received a letter today that I’m quite excited about. I made the Dean’s List for the Fall 2012 semester, with an overall grade point average of 3.75! I don’t like to brag, that’s just not me, and I hope this post doesn’t sound as though I am.

In case you are new here, I was a horrible student from junior high through high school. I think it began with my fifth grade teacher who was a bitch, and yelled at me after I’d worked up the courage to ask her for help. I pretty much shut down after that. To this day, I have great difficulty in asking for help. I also stopped putting any more effort into school work than was absolutely necessary.

Since beginning college (back in 2008), I have worked hard to change my attitude, and I work hard. I push myself hard. I keep working even when I feel like giving up. And I found out that I’m not stupid (like my fifth grade teacher made me feel)! I am reasonably intelligent, and I am capable of earning good grades! Who knew??!!

I also have to give Tim credit for: (1) believing in me enough to convince me to take a chance on college; (2) for nudging me when I second-guess myself; (3) for being the best tutor I could hope for; (4) not complaining when I fall behind on the laundry or cleaning (and even pitching in from time-to-time). I also have many wonderful family members and friends who cheer me on and encourage me, and I feel truly blessed to have a whole team behind me who wants to see me succeed, and who believe in me even when I don’t believe in myself. You know who you are, and you have my eternal gratitude and love!


Letter informing me that I made the Dean's List at Kean University for the Fall 2012 semester.

My high school teachers would probably not believe this!


Thank You

For all of the love, support and encouragement everyone has given me during this exciting, yet trying, time of my life.  The blog world is certainly one special place, and I am blessed to be a part of it (even when I’m inactive)!

Happy Autumnal Equinox!  I am sad to see summer come to an end though…  Shorts and sandals are my thing, and I will not enjoy packing them away soon!

Hope you all have a wonderful day!

Returning the Love

My name is Stacey and I am a cre8Buzz! addict.

Seriously.

One fateful January day, when I was a new blogger looking for ways to gain exposure for my blog, I happened upon a site called cre8Buzz! I’ve been there every day since. I have joined many other social networking sites, but cre8Buzz! stands apart from any other I’ve seen.

And here are some of the reasons I feel that way:

  • There is a true sense of community there that I have never found on any other site. Not only is it great to have that sense of belonging, but I feel as though I have a personal interest in the success of this place that I like so much.
  • The people I have met there are genuine, caring, intelligent and really nice!
  • The cre8Buzz! team is true to their motto: “be seen… be heard… be found”. And on the Anthill: “Where the ants speak.” It really is about the people and giving us a chance to shine!
  • The Antman is ‘one of us’. He hangs out with us, comments on our stuff, welcomes each and every newcomer, and even answers emails! Try finding that on one of those other sites! (I haven’t.)
  • It’s fun!

And the addition of the Anthill (cre8Buzz’s brand new community blog, and a first of it’s kind!) is just feeding my addiction! It’s only about 24 hours old, and there are already a ton of outstanding posts and comments!

Thank you to the cre8Buzz! team for doing all that you do!

Stop by my profile at cre8Buzz! and say hello! If you’re not already a fellow addict member, sign up while you’re there! It will only take a minute and then you’re on your way!



Today marks a very big day for my friend Misty Dawn (from My Dogs Keep Me Sane and Misty’s Words). She has just written her 500th post! Congratulations Misty Dawn!!

Misty could have written about anything. Or not written at all (which would have been sad). She chose to do something very special. She wrote about her friends. Her blogging friends! “Celebrating 500 with a Tribute to YOU” is a beautifully written post dedicated to the people she has met through blogging and have become important folks in her life. The fact that she includes me in that special group touches me deeply, because I definitely count Misty Dawn among my friends as well!

If you’re not already a regular reader of My Dogs Keep Me Sane (which I hope you are!), please take a moment to visit today and wish Misty a “Happy 500th Post”!

Congratulations again, my friend! Big hugs to you!
