A Week of REST – Retrospect

This year I spent quite a bit of time learning. The last big challenge was the Week of REST in beautiful Derbyshire, September 5th – 9th. It was an amazing week and I am still impressed by how much I learnt during those few days. And it sure wasn’t necessary to be so nervous about it. 😉

Cooking with the New York Times

We have a nice collection of pretty cool cookbooks, but the resource I actually use most often is the recipe collection of the NY Times.

Actually it’s so much more than a collection of recipes: If you have an account you are able to build up your own recipe box, rate recipes, sync them with your Evernote account and learn the basics around cooking. You are even able to add recipes from around the web to your NY Times Cooking recipe box.

You’ll soon have your favorite cooks but it’s easy to browse all kinds of collections, search for ingredients or find some inspiration.

Check it out!

Seth Godins Freelancer Course

I have to admit I am a bit of a Seth Godin fan girl. I love his books, own probably most of them (including this beauty, from a Kickstarter campaign) and am a fairly regular reader of his blog.

Seths newest product is an online course for freelancers, and, well, sure, I needed to sign up.

This was WPCamp Berlin 2013

A short recap and some thoughts before it’s too long gone. Yeah, another WordPress event with lots of inspiring, smart and fun people. A big Thank You to the organizers and everybody who had a share in making it possible. More of it!
In a way I feel sorry I can’t be in London for the upcoming WordCamp. Then again I do need some time to implement all the stuff I learned in Berlin and in Leiden. But back to Berlin for now.

WordCamp Europe 2013 in Leiden

It was a first time. The first WordCamp that addressed people from all over Europe and even further. And it was a blast.
A huge “Thank you” to all the people who worked hard to make it possible. It was amazing.

Last glimpse of summer

Almost every day I pass this huge sunflower field. It looked gorgeous when they were blooming. Now summer is drawing to a close. The other day I didn’t put of taking pictures any longer but went back home and got my camera.

Yesterday a period of hot summer days here in Germany ended with thunderstorms and heavy rain.

More summer pics of sunflowers
