Men are from Manteresting and Women are from Pinterest


Yes, the men have gone and created their own thing because evidently ours was just too pretty, crafty and girly for them. Meet Manteresting, the man's version of Pinterest. Although I do not condone some of the items being posted on the site (maybe cause I'm a girl), it's really quite clever.

According to the site, Manteresting is "not the first social bookmarking website to hit the Internet, we are the first to specifically cater to the male population. Last time we checked there were 3.4 billion men on earth. It's about time."

Take a trip over to Manteresting, and you may just get a tiny peek inside the male mind. While we're busy posting things like children's parties, interior decor shots and planning our dream wedding, they are "nailing" items to their boards. You'll see movie posters, lots of bacon, half-dressed women (we still have Ryan Gosling) and sports.

So, to review: meat, sports and movies, that about sums up the majority of what's there so far, from what I can tell. Oh and lots of mancave ideas. Go figure.

Here's a sample of just a couple of the interesting items currently showing on the main page:





See what I mean?

Just goes to confirm, how very different we creatures are. In other words, Men are from Manteresting and Women are from Pinterest.

It will be interesting to follow this site and see how this trend inspires other online pin-boards. Anyone up for starting Kidsteresting with me?

  1. Hey! Thanks for sharing the site. We love Pinterest, and women, but we really do think differently which we don't think is a bad thing at all! It's such a different atmosphere between Pinterest and Manteresting, we even have a growing group of women that have joined to get away from the cupcakes and puppies from time to time :) (just like we use Pinterest, with our wives, when we're planning our kids birthday parties)

    We also have lots of features that no other image bookmarking site currently offers which will help define what Manteresting is to come to be.

    thanks again! Happy pinning and nailing :)

    1. Jesse - thanks for the comment! No, I certainly don't think it's a bad thing that we are different! We'd probably get bored if we were too much alike! Best wishes on this exciting endeavor! I'm married to one of those "manly men" so I certainly get it (and he loves some bacon).

Blog Cards (The New Calling Card)

I came across this budding trend online and thought - what a great idea! I have people that occasionally ask for my blog address and wouldn't it be great to have a blog card with just my blog address on it to give to people? I guess you could say it's the new calling card. It can make your blogging duties feel much more ligit and even promote your blog if it's something you're trying to profit from.


moo.com has templates for mini cards that would be perfect for blog cards. Cathe at Just Something I Madeposted some great examples of blog cards she's used in the past to promote her blog -

Let me know if you need a design and I can put something together for you!

Come On Get Happi with Happikins™

One of my girlfriends is a fabulous entrepreneur with several successful businesses under her belt. Her most recent endeavor reaches past general consumerism and takes a creative and fun approach to the impact we make on the environment.

Meet Happikins: There are 18,760 pounds of unnecessary lunchtime waste generated by the average elementary school each year. Paper napkins contribute to this waste — and they're also a drain on expenses. Did you know most kids use $200 worth of paper napkins a year?
Happikins are reusable cloth napkins designed specifically for kids. They can even be used as place mats for children who have food allergies. Happikins™ are a fun and easy way to teach your child the importance of making smart environmental choices. Oh, and wiping the crud off the corners of their mouths. You can choose from 3 sets of Happikins:
Each set of Happikins comes with five napkins and a durable pouch that makes a nice home for the napkins and fits nicely in a lunchbox. You can ev…

December 30th

It's the quiet days that sometimes get to me. I just got off the phone with my mom. I told her I have cabin fever. She said, "You probably won't be someone who should retire."

I replied, "I don't ever plan to".

This year Christmas was a bit slower, a bit quieter than usual. Maybe because everyone is getting a bit older, there are no babies around to cry or wail, and my grandparents seemed so feeble. With my uncle's passing this year, Mike having to work the day after Christmas and my dad not around - such a significant absence of the male figures that had always been there over the holidays.

My mother had bronchitis, and my nephew the flu. Walker and I both ended up with awful colds that we're still trying to get over.

My parents were kind to one another, amicable and friendly.

The presents were plentiful and Santa exceeded expectations.

The three sons/cousins/grandsons were happy and hyper.

So much buildup, and it always goes by too fast. I'…
