Holy Snap! It's Been Too Long!

I haven't had a breather-moment to write on my poor old deserted blog and I feel totally bad about it. Over the past 2 weeks I've worked my tail off on several things both professionally and personally. In particularly, I've picked up the "twitter-thing" which I totally was fighting tooth and nails at first. I must admit, I'm "kinda" getting the hang of it and starting to like it so please come follow me @arikajITF. I twit tech things that I don't necessarily blog about so check it out. And I've been in correspondence with the good folks over at, an awesome online tool for teachers with over 33,000+ educational videos and a directory of over 3,000 categories. WKL are on a nation-wide tour trying to get their name out there and their FREE resources in the hands of teachers and children around the country. And did I mention FREE! Yep, just log on to WatchKnowLearn and see what all the buzz is about!

Personal Cartton Avatars

In my quest to find a personalized, cartoon avatar, I ran across this post about someone who uses FaceTime on the iPad to do a 10 minute sketch of you and then convert it into a digital copy that he'll email right to your inbox.

In the mist of that post, I ran across a site that offers task for 5 bucks called Fiverr. It has a similar artistic guy that will do basically the same thing for a little less. Whichever the preference, both are uniquely artistic and produce awesome results.

Hope to share my cartoon image soon.
