Happy 2011, everyone! I can’t believe it’s the start of a new decade already…it feels like just yesterday we were all preparing our underground tunnels for Y2K. Ahh, memories. Come to think of it, I think there might still be some snack packs down there!
Anyway, moving on…
I have quite a few resolutions for 2011, but the one I’m most excited about involves YOU! Webfetti is hard at work creating an awesome, new homepage that allows you to find your favorite tools faster and easier than ever! I can’t give you a sneak peek at the moment, but as soon as I James Bond my way into the super-secret design room, I might be able to give you all a taste of what’s to come. Keep your eyes peeled!
In the mean time, the winter is the perfect season to curl up on your couch with a warm blankie and send your loved ones some ‘fetti. While everyone is packing on their winter pounds, you can be giving your Facebook page some flavor with fun Layouts or adding some flair to your friends’ walls.
Seriously, how can you resist this?
The answer: You can’t! It’s the cutest Glitter Graphic ever!
Go grab your laptop and put on those pajamas of yours, because tonight you’re spending the night in with Webfetti!
Has it really been over a week since I’ve blogged? I am SO sorry I’ve been MIA…that’s so naughty of me! Christmas season always stresses me out…I’ve been playing Energizer Bunny for the last couple of weeks, just going and going and going.
In between shopping trips, I’ve been baking batches of cookies. In between baking sessions, I’m at the post office sending Christmas cards. When I’m not at the post office, I’m planning my fabulous and eagerly-talked-about New Year’s Eve party. Whew! The list is never ending, but I think I’ve finally completed my Christmas tasks. Bonus! Also, I’ve found myself totally glued to Webfetti the last couple of weeks. I’m constantly sending Christmas/Winter ‘fetti to my Facebook friends and I can’t stop updating my Layout! I’m obsessed!
I wanted to show off some of the chill-tastic winter Smileys and Christmas Graphics that I’ve been sending the most this holiday season. Brace yourselves…here we go!
Jenni’s List of Most-Sent ‘Fetti
Head to Webfetti now to seach and send some festive ‘fetti! Note: The “Bite Me” Graphic works well for those exes who may or may not be consuming your thoughts this Christmas season. It says ”You suck” AND “Happy Holidays,” all in one. What Christmas card can do THAT?
So, will you send any of my fave holiday ‘fetti to the special people in your life? Let me know which are your ultimate picks!
I know you haven’t heard from me in a while because I’ve been super busy getting ready for the holidays (sorry!), but today’s blog post is more of a bitchin’ sesh…online therapy, if you will. Retail therapy is more my thing, but I figure this is worth a shot, right?
I know the holidays can be rough. You’re busy dealing with annoying in-laws, hanging decorations, cooking feasts, spending your hard-earned cash on your third cousin’s children (who have yet to thank you for last year’s presents) and oh, right…working! Stress, stress, stress! I think it’s time people start remembering that Christmas is supposed to be a time of peace and joy, instead of pushing, shoving and road rage, hm?
The holiday season is becoming longer and longer. It used to begin in mid-December, but recent years have been pushing December forward little by little. Before you know it, it’s the first of November and Santa is at your local mall! WTF?! This Christmas, I’m going to ask you all a favor. For ONE day in the upcoming weeks, I would like you to sit back at home with your family and take it all in. Smell the pine, listen to the children laughing and enjoy the feel of your cozy, snuggly couch. All too often we forget about the most important parts of the season- being thankful for what we have. While you’re busy cookin’ up a storm and untangling Christmas lights, don’t forget about the little things that make the holidays worthwhile.
Wait… How did he get in here? Whoops… (Sorry, but I just had to!)
Anyway, this Christmas be sure to honor the holdiay for what it’s worth. Smile at a stranger on the street, help someone carry their shopping bags and shovel old lady Timmerman’s driveway so she doesn’t throw her hip out on the ice again. Let’s all take a breather, send our loved ones some Webfetti and just take a chill pill.
Whew! Now that that’s off my chest, I’m going to go finish writing my letter to Santa. Peace out, everybody!
I’m so glad it’s almost chow-down time! This year, I have tons to be thankful for, and I plan on celebrating by spending the holiday with my family and friends over good food, good wine and some seriously intense Wii marathons! Last year I must have worked off my entire Thanksgiving meal within an hour by rivaling my sisters in Wii bowling and fencing…SUCH an awesome way to shed those stuffing calories!
Seriously, though, I have a ton to be thankful for this year, including my amazing friends and family, my new digs and my AWESOME job here at Webfetti, just to name a few. But instead of dedicating this Thanksgiving to the people in my life who I thank every year for their constant love and support, I would like to dedicate this holiday to the people in my life who have made me realize just how lucky I am to have those genuinely good people in my life in the first place.
To you, crazy, lying ex-boyfriend who broke my heart. Thank you for teaching me that not everyone appears to be what they seem. Because of this, I am more appreciative of the people in my life who choose to protect my heart and cherish it, than those who don’t deserve an ounce of my attention. I’ve also realized that you can’t put all of your eggs in one basket, because the basket might turn out to be a pathological liar and then you’ll have no eggs left…and that just sucks.
To you, evil, insensitive co-worker. Thank you for teaching me that beautiful people are not always so beautiful on the inside and that it truly is personality that counts. The fact that you have a sweet boyfriend gives me hope that there really is someone out there for everyone. Also, the fact that I saw you walk out of the restroom with toilet paper on your shoe confirms my belief in karma. Thank you and I wish you the best of luck.
To you, obnoxious gossiping relative who calls way too often. Thank you for teaching me that some things are just better left unsaid. Also, thank you for taking such an interest in my personal life, as I realize you must just be living vicariously through me…which is flattering in a weird way. Also, it’s good to know that there really is ”one in every family.”
Last, but not least,
To you, Facebook friend who feels the need to tag me in horrible, unflattering pictures for the world to see. Thank you for teaching me about the power of the Internet. If it weren’t for you and Perez Hilton, I wouldn’t be as cautious about how I behave in public. Also, you make me thankful for each and every average picture that ends up online. Oh, and you also make me thankful for Photoshop.
That pretty much concludes my backwards Thanksgiving blessings. I hope you all have a WONDERFUL Turkey Day. Sit back, relax and stuff yo’ face. After all, you deserve it.
What’s up, y’all? Today’s blog post is not only about something that I’m passionate about, but it’s also something you’ve been doing your entire life. Whether you realize it or not, you’ve been VOTING since you were a wee one in your diaper and bib. Did you prefer the pureed peas or the pureed bananas? Did you want superman pull-ups or spiderman pull-ups? Did you pick your nose or your wedgies? Kidding…kidding. But in all seriousness, everyone should exercise their right to go vote today. The best part about our country is that we have a right to express our opinions…so why not vote? Besides, if you don’t vote, you have no reason to complain if you don’t like decisions that have been made. That’s just how it works, kids.
Webfetti is celebrating Election Day by featuring three new Graphics for you to post on your walls to spread the word about voting. Check ‘em out…
Well, which Graphic will YOU be rocking today?
Also, speaking of voting, I need your opinions. I think you’ll be happy to know, things with me and my new love intetrest are moving along just swimmingly. (He’s pretty easy on the eyes, too!) We’ve been on a handful of dates in the last few weeks, but we’re looking for something fresh, new and out of the ordinary for our next date. Which of these fun date ideas seems like the best option for our next, exciting adventure together?
- Cheering on our favorite teams at a hockey or football game (with beer and hot dogs, naturally).
- Teleporting back to Medieval Times with dinner and an interactive show.
- Running around a glow-in-the-dark room playing an intense game of laser tag.
- Picking a random spot on a map and exploring the chosen area for the day.
Think about it and let me know which option you think I should go with. In fact, you can think about it when you’re online to VOTE. <– Like what I did there? Hehe.
Happy Monday all of my loyal followers and ‘fetti first-timers! I hope everyone had a fantastic Halloween weekend! I just LOVE seeing all of the little kids dressed up and running from door-to-door in their adorable (and occasionally disturbing) costumes. Have you ever noticed that there’s always that ONE kid who grabs a handful of candy from your bowl and runs away after you specifically said ”please take one”? This year for me, it was a boy dressed up as Snooki from The Jersey Shore. And no, I’m not kidding.
Anyway, now that our fond memories of vampires, mummies and bats are officially “so yesterday,” we can focus our attention on bigger and better things, like THANKSGIVING! There’s nothing I love more than a day completely devoted to four of my favorite f’s: family, friends, food and football. Fashion took the day off. I was not at all surprised when I entered the mall this weekend and found that Halloween decorations are no-longer. Christmas and Hanukkah decorations are up, but it seems the shopping mall may have forgotten about Thanksgiving! Instead of having Santa come to the mall for photos, I think we need to get a turkey up in that joint! We can’t neglect November holidays!
This past month, our Halloween graphics did SO well, that we want to give you all a head-start sending Thanksgiving loot. Try and send even more than you did for Halloween. The Pilgrims and Indians would be proud. Here are some of our new Thanksgiving graphics, hot off the press for you to gift:
Well, what do you think of our new swag? Do you have any fun plans for Thanksgiving this year? Here at Webfetti, we’re already preparing for the joyous occasion, and there’s even talk of having a formal, sit-down dinner one night! After all, work family is just an extension of your own family, right? You do spend the majority of your days with your co-workers. If this employee soiree happens, I can be extra thankful since there’s a good chance I’ll be sitting across from some serious hunks. Let’s just hope I don’t get stuck breaking the wishbone with the office don juan (cough, cough, Skip Smiley, cough cough).
So tell me, what are YOU thankful for this year?
Not only is Halloween awesome because it’s the one day a year you can dress up as scandalously/ frighteningly/ freakishly/ comfortably as you want without being judged, but it’s also the perfect excuse to scare yourself silly. A little adrenaline never hurt anyone, right? A good scare is like a dip on a high roller coaster, dropping from a plane when you’re skydiving for the first time (yes, I did that and it was insane), or watching your fave football team tie in the last quarter of the Super Bowl (go G-Men), so I’ve put together a list of my top ten favorite movies to watch around Halloween that will hopefully scare the hell out of you! (See what I did there…scare the hell out of you, hehe.) Maybe you’ll try out some of my recommendations and have yourself a little movie marathon this October 31st.
Note: Some of these flicks might not be appropriate for the kiddies, so have your remotes ready to fast forward OR stick to ‘It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.’ Capiche?
10. Hocus Pocus- Who doesn’t love a good Disney flick? So fun!
9. The Nightmare Before Christmas- Halloween + Christmas = coolest concept ever.
8. Halloween (naturally)- It’s hilarious watching scared babysitters…unless you’re the babysitter.
7. The Shining- “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.”
6. Beetle Juice- It’s a horror, comedy and fantasy in one. Oh, and director Tim Burton is at his best!
5. The Exorcist- It’ll honestly scare the bejesus out of you…and anyone within a one-mile vicinity.
4. Scream- Courteney Cox Arquette and David Arquette. ‘Nuff said…Ohh, the good ‘ol days.
3. Saw- It’s so gory you might need a puke bag…and that’s just awesome.
2. Friday the 13th- People should know camp isn’t always about pranks, kumbayas and bonfires.
1. Psycho (The Original)- The shower scene is enough to scare you away from your bathroom for at least a month and it’s quite possibly the best horror film of all time…not to mention it’s the perfect movie to get extra close and cuddly to your honey
Anyway, don’t forget to check out all of Webfetti’s spooktacular Halloween graphics! Mwahahaha. Also, I’d love to hear what your favorite Halloween flick is, so shoot me a line!
What’s good, ladies and gents? You all know I’m guilty of being a bit of a gossip, so why would I skimp on the details about our new hire, Skip ‘The Skipster’ Smiley! Skip will be the face of SmileyCentral, and will work hard to keep you informed about the hottest new apps, news and water cooler gossip…oh, and himself (which seems to be high on his priority list).
He’s already made quite an impression on the office staff, and is very…er… interesting. Not to mention, his outfits have most definitely added some zest to the workplace. But don’t worry, I won’t let anyone steal my thunder around here. We all know who rules this office runway.
I’ve conducted a mini-interview with our new anchor to give you all a small dose of Skip (trust me, you’ll thank me it’s not a larger dose). If he needs to be straightened out, though, I think we all know I can train ‘em well!
: Skip, what would you say is your most unique quality as the new reporter for SmileyCentral?
: My unmatched charm and ability to woo the ladies with only my natural scent. Next…
: Wow. So, if you could “woo” one lady from history with a breaking news story, who would you choose?
: Has anyone ever told you you’re eyes are beautiful? They look like the marble countertops in my kitchen.
: Um, okay. Thanks. So would you say you have a natural ease in front of the cameras?
: Everything about me is au naturale, if you know what I’m sayin’…
: Last question. I heard you also have an interest in freestyling. If you could report one SmileyCentral report to the tune of any rap, what would it be?
: Gangsta’s Paradise. I know how to roll wit the homies.
Friend Skip on Facebook here!
Well, there you have it, folks. That’s ’The Skipster’ in a nutshell! Stay tuned for more news from me (and Skip), and pray that I don’t get stuck alone with him in the elevator. Down, tiger! Ohh, the price of beauty…
By the way, do you have a ‘Skip’ type in your office? I want to know if there are more of these guys out there…haha.
Hey everyone! Today’s topic is one that is near and dear to all of us…
I’m not talking about Facebook relationship statuses, which have (somehow) become the pillar of legitimacy when it comes to declaring yourself single or taken. I’m talking about your actual Facebook statuses, where you complain about your day, brag about your too-good-to-be-true jobs, quote Lady Gaga and inform the public that you’re doing laundry in your basement and to come find you if you’re not back in five hours. Well, I have good news for you!
With the growing popularity of Smiley Chat for Facebook, Smiley Central has now given you the ability to inject Smileys into your statuses! If you’ve downloaded the Smiley app on Facebook, you’ll now see a little Smiley face appear next to your status bar, like this one:
Once you click on the little happy face, you’ll see a box where you can select classic or seasonal Smileys (like the one below, which happens to be decked out for Halloween):
To spruce up your status with a Smiley, simply click on the little guy of your choice and you’ll see a code appear in your status bar. Once you post your update, the Smiley you’ve selected will appear:
How baller is that?!
In case you haven’t yet, it’s time to get with the program and download this awesome app! Now, when you want to tell the world how much your boyfriend cried while watching Titanic, you can say it with a Smiley!
Well, what do you think?!?!
Hey! How’s everyone doing on this bright and beautiful Tuesday? I’m all smiles (just in case you were wondering), not only beacause our brand new app, Smiley Chat for Facebook, is getting some AWESOME stats and reviews in the news, but ALSO because I have a new crush who seems too good to be true! Ahhh!
So, Smiley Chat is spreading like wild fire and users are loving it almost as much as I’m digging the hot, new guy on Glee. Yeah, I said it. The blond Glee hottie isn’t my crush though…well, I mean…he’s not my main crush. I’m writing to you, my loyal Webfetti fans, to get some solid dating advice. Don’t steer me wrong! I have a few questions that I would like answered before I proceed to overthink this potential relationship (hehe). I may be flirtatious and outgoing, but I want to make sure I don’t do anything to sabotage my love connection now that he seems to be interested back! Keep your fingers crossed!
First and foremost, how long is it appropriate to “date” before things become Facebook official? 3 days? 3 weeks? 3 months? Help me out!
Secondly, I can’t cook! What if my crush (who we shall call ”Ringo” until I’m allowed to disclose this important information to the public) is a great chef, and the most extravagant delicacy I can make is Easy Mac? And no, I’m not kidding…
Also, Halloween is coming up! YAY! This spooktacular holiday is one of my fave times of year, so aside from sending ”Ringo” the most adorable Halloween Graphics from Webfetti, should I ask him to come to a costume party with me?
Maybe I should just send him this…
Is that too forward?!? Haha.
Anyway, I’d love to hear what you all think of a) Smiley Chat for Facebook and b) my dating crisis. Send me your thoughts and be honest! Until next time, peace, love and happiness!
