Out of town for App Camp for Girls, Mug Shots, and more

Hi all! I’m going to be in San Francisco for about a week, which means I won’t be as active about scheduling new clients. I might even skip recording Steady; it all depends on whether I can easily find a podcasting space in San Francisco. I’m an optimist, though—I’ll pack my mic! :)

As you probably know, I’ll be having a Mug Shots event on June 9 from 3:30-5:30. As of right now, I have exactly *one* spot left—move fast if you want dibs! :)

What you may not know is that I’ll also be in town to represent a volunteer cause I’m very passionate about. App Camp for Girls is a fantastic organization, and we’re having a huge fundraiser bash, plus some other networking activities here and there. If you’d like to read a bit more about my work with them, you can check out this blog post! Or if you want to cut to the chase, you can donate to our Indiegogo campaign. Every comment, share, and $5 contribution really does help!

Note that this is a frizzy exhausted AC4G pic—I will make you look SO MUCH BETTER if you come to Mug Shots! :)

I’ll be back in action the week of June 15th—I look forward to tackling your comments, questions, and pleas for appointments with me then. Have a great week, and say hi if you see me around WWDC!

How and when to ask for free advice

I get a *lot* of requests to help people for free. I usually offer a few tips, because at the end of the day, I care perhaps to a weird degree about helping people exit bad relationships and find good ones. But I can’t and don’t always jump into Freebie Mode. I’d like to take a […]

Working with a professional

No, not like THAT, you guys! Get your minds out of the gutter. Lately I’ve worked with several different professionals—I’ve hired folks for  graphic design, photography, and some web development that was beyond my expertise. I also worked with an interior decorator, and I helped a client hire a makeup artist and a wardrobe specialist. I’ve […]

Discussing drinking in your dating profile

Spring just sprung, I just turned 33, and I JUST sent out my March newsletter full of free online dating advice! This month’s topic was about alcohol. Specifically, how you should state your drinking habits, how you can figure out your date’s actual drinking habits, how you can comfortably navigate drinking or not drinking during […]

Getting support

I can’t believe it took me this long to really show it to you—you guys have to see the present my husband Grant got me for Christmas. It’s my hearty-heart-heart background art. Check it out! Everyone who’s seen it in a video chat has complimented it, but none of my clients lately have been geeks […]

My interview on Side Hustle Nation!

Hey lovebirds! You may have noticed I’ve been a little quiet so far this year—it’s not you, it’s totally me. I’ve been trying to hunker down and work on some bigger projects this year that always seem to slip away from me. Late last year I was on the wonderful Side Hustle Show with Nick […]

New Year’s Resolutions for lovebirds

Innards of a Roomba.

Hi Lovebirds! I hope you’re all going to have a wonderful safe time this New Year’s Eve. Enjoy your day tomorrow! Regular Heartographer business starts back up on the 2nd; I’m looking forward to getting back into the swing of things with y’all. I wrote a silly little piece of Medium about New Year’s Resolutions, […]

Florida and back!

Hey lovebirds, I’m back! Wait, you didn’t know I was gone? …Yeah, sorry about that. I only remembered to tell my newsletter subscribers. But alas, I’m returned, and ready to party with you, and/or return to helping you find love online. :) I was in Florida, helping my mom recover from a planned surgery. It was […]

Wine and whales

I’ve been blogging in the not-just-love department lately, so I thought I’d share a couple of those posts. First, my mulled wine guide: The main components of a good mulling spice are cloves, cinnamon, orange peel, and allspice. I’ve also seen blends that include ginger, nutmeg, lemon peel, black peppercorns, and star anise, and I’ve […]

Monday roundup

Hey lovebirds, hope you all had a fantastic weekend! I sure did. :) My husband has been working insane hours lately, but he actually got to stay home and chill out with his wife for the first time in a while. It was pretty swell. Also, I got my podcast back up and running! Listen, […]
