On Brownie Scraps, we were discussing Christmas lists. One of them included printer suggestions . I don’t mean a receipt printer or anything, but actual printers. I pimped out my HP D110a that I got for $50 last year. I love this freaking printer. But, the best suggestion, in my opinion, that I could have given is to not just base the choice on what options the printer has, and how cheap it is. Look at the costs of the ink replacements. Mine are about $14-30, depending on which ones I’m buying. Black is cheap. I’ve replaced it twice. Maybe three times, max. Color? I go through it like it’s toilet paper. Actually, I think I go through ink faster. Why? Because I love to print hybrid projects. I also take a lot of pictures, and I like to print those out as well.
So, if you’re on the hunt for a new printer, make sure you check out the costs of the ink as well!
My kids are both getting sucked into Bridge to Terabithia.
Josh is okay with getting it for them, including getting Madi the book.
That was my dad’s suggestion for Madi. He told me that he wished he could have done it for me, and that’s one of his biggest regrets: he didn’t encourage my love of reading and writing. *sniffles*
Now, time for an update on the excercise:
First, I had to quit early today. Headache (still have the headache), shaky, woozy, nauseaus, ughs!
Anyways, worked out every day this week!! I’m so proud of myself!
I did a post on ways to lose readers, and apparently I found a few more, from my own experience:
1. Do not blog about gifts you’re getting from family. I lost two readers after posting that.
2. Do not blog about your politics. That’ll lose you visitors.
3. Do not post updates if you’re doing NaNo. Apparently if you do it more than once a day (oh my god, my blog), you’ll lose readers.
I have a small suggestion for those that drop people from their feed readers. How about dropping the person a line and letting them know why? Maybe you just didn’t find what they were righting interesting. I know I would like to know.
