Frequently Asked Questions
Can I send you free stuff in exchange for promotion?
Probably not. I have weird taste. Lest you are in the business of producing Liberace gear or sloth art, I’m probably not your target demographic. If you are interested in sponsoring a post, please contact me directly firstname.lastname@example.org. Let’s see what we can do.
Can I link to one of your projects?
Of course! You are welcome to link up, repost single image files, or brief excerpts (100 words or less).
Can I repost one of your tutorials? I promise to link back and fiddle with the words enough to really “make it my own.”
Where did the name Aunt Peaches come from?
Long story short but not-that-short: My family has called me Peaches for ages and I was proud to become Aunt Peaches
when my niece was born in 2009. In fact, I was so proud, I used “Aunt
Peaches 2009″ as my login name when commenting on blogs and websites,
including a couple which asked me to write contributor posts in 2010,
which eventually sparked a conversation about “Aunt Peaches’ blog”,
which eventually morphed into calling the blog AuntPeaches.com. Then I
bought the domain and that was that.
Wow, that was long.
What can I do to dye my coffee filters _(insert bridesmaid color here)__?
Easy Answer 1: Click here.
Easy Answer 2: Get a stack of 50 filters, run them under water, squish
out water, add acrylic paint, squish out more water, add paint, squish
out more water, and repeat til they look how you want them. People ask
me for specific dye recipes but I have long given up – every coffee
filter brand contains a different level of starch or something that changes the rate of absorption. You will just have to try yourself. It’s
easier than you think, I promise.
Figure out if you are blogging for yourself or for your audience. After you figure that out, the rest will follow.
Why did you use a bad word in that post? Shucks, now I can’t share it with my Pastor.
blog is my personal sandbox. I write things down the same as they would
fall out of my mouth, which, occasionally, may include some words that
other people find offensive. I was not raised to hold any facet of language as forbidden. But that’s just me. My opinion of what qualifies as “profane”
might be different than yours. I won’t hold it against you if you don’t
hold it against me.
I spotted a typo. Will you get offended if I let you know?
no. Please, by all means, let me know. In situations like this you are doing me a favor.
Can you write a post on __(this random thing that I am really interested in)___?
