Jenny:

Be careful with your new iPhone 6 Plus people. Wear looser pants to avoid bending. :)

Let us begin this post with the qualifying statement that it has never until today occurred to us to try to bend a cellphone, subsequently, we do not know how much bendy-type pressure one should expect to be able to apply on a phone without warping it. I probably could go downstairs to the labs and start bending Consumer Reports’ test phones to establish a baseline, but I suspect they’d be sort of angry, and I really want them to like me. So, let it be known that we don’t know if this video of a guy bending his phone on purpose represents evidence of an unacceptable performance from the phone. But it totally does bend. Yes, it does.

“This is a huge piece of aluminum… yes it bends under the force of my hand pressure,” says Lewis Hilsenteger of Unbox Therapy. He adds, “It’s time to see how…

Come meet the new Jenny Wears Glasses

After a lot of reading, I’ve decided to make the switch from WordPress.com to WordPress.org.

When I started blogging in 2008 (Please Pick-Up Your Socks days), I started blogging using Blogger and then after a year or two moved over to WordPress.com. I really love the simplicity of both platforms. Both have beautiful templates and tools to help you make an amazing blog.

… But I need more. I want to learn something new. I want to learn about plug-ins, try new themes, try to use Search Engine Optimization and get a domain name with no wordpress.com or blogspot.com in it.

So, without further ado, here is my brand spanking new blog: www.jennywearsglasses.com

My jennywearsglasses.wordpress.com blog will still exist here on WordPress.com, but I will now be only posting on the new site.

Come join the conversation at http://www.jennywearsglasses.com/

Day 14 – A song that reminds you of your boyfriend/girlfriend

The song that reminds me of my boyfriend husband is this one. I remember, when we first started dating, he picked me up in his purple Talon and we went for a drive. I can’t remember where we went, but I remember that he played this song in his car and it was the first time I ever heard of this band.

 

3 things I’m going to stop doing because I don’t want to be a disastrous blog.

Lately, I’ve been reading a lot about blogging. I want this little blog of mine to be a success and turn into something pretty cool. While reading How to Make Money with Your Blog (because who wouldn’t want to make a little extra income here and there), three tips it gives to avoid being a disastrous blog really hit home:

  1. Credibility Kills – From now on, I will fully disclose products that have been given to me for review. I’m pretty sure that I have done this in the past. Consider it from now on, full disclosure.
  2. Lack of content – I will do my best to post at least 200 word posts.
  3. Hot linked images – I didn’t realize the terribleness that exists using hot linked images. In case you don’t know what a hot linked image is, it’s the practice of adding an image into your blog post that is hosted by another Web site. Ek! I’ve totally done this. From now on, I will only post my own photos, even if they are totally random and I will hopefully have time to create more relevant photos for future blog posts.

What are your tips for blog etiquette? I’m still learning here and would love to hear your suggestions.

Day 13 – A song that reminds you of a former friend

Funny enough, this song reminds me of a former friend. I can picture us listening to this song, over and over and over again on our CD players. Fantasizing what it would be like to marry Nick Carter (You did too didn’t you?!?!) .

What song reminds you of a former friend? Post the YouTube link below!

Websites that make cool photo related gifts

Do you read A Cup of Jo’s blog? Are you jealous of all the cool things she’s been making with Pinhole Press*? Me too.

I’m hoping the Internet (I mean you), can help me find a website that helps us Canadians make cool stuff like this:

So far, the only companies I can find that makes anything similar are:

Vistaprint.ca

  • Clothing
  • Hoodies
  • Hats
  • Tote Bags

Walmart PhotoCentre

  • Photo Books
  • Photo keychains
  • Photo puzzles
  • iPhone cases

Blacks.ca

Do you use any of these sites for your photo related gifts? Do you have another website you use? Let me know!

 

*Pinhole Press does ship to Canada. Not sure what their shipping rates are.

 

Coles Notes: #ALSICEBUCKETCHALLENGE

What is #ALS? 

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), often referred to as “Lou Gehrig’s Disease,” is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Motor neurons reach from the brain to the spinal cord and from the spinal cord to the muscles throughout the body. The progressive degeneration of the motor neurons in ALS eventually leads to their death. When the motor neurons die, the ability of the brain to initiate and control muscle movement is lost. With voluntary muscle action progressively affected, patients in the later stages of the disease may become totally paralyzed. - The ALS Association

What is the #ALSicebucketchallenge?

The Ice Bucket Challenge, sometimes called the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, is an activity involving dumping a bucket of ice water on someone’s head to promote awareness of the disease amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and encourage donations to research. – Wikipedia

How do you get nominated?

The challenge dares nominated participants to be filmed having a bucket of ice water poured on their heads and challenging others to do the same. A common stipulation is that nominated people have 24 hours to comply or forfeit by way of a charitable financial donation. – Wikipedia

If I get nominated, how do I properly #hashtag my video?

When doing the challenge, please use the hashtags #icebucketchallenge, #alsicebucketchallenge, and #strikeoutals. – The ALS Association

Has Jenny been nominated?

No (and that’s okay), but she may have been mentioned in this one. – Jenny

Have you or a friend of yours been nominated for the #ALSicebucketchallenge? Please post their videos here.
