What I learned this week about: Late war German camo schemes

If the current atmosphere of the world in general has taught me anything, it’s that there is no reason not to be incredibly self-indulgent with my blog posts. On the list of Things That Are Important to Sam, agonizing over whether or not the words that I publish in the growing void of the internetContinue reading “What I learned this week about: Late war German camo schemes”

What I learned this week about: 5th Edition

A few weeks ago (was it weeks? Maybe months. Perhaps decades) I posted a very self-indulgent post about rediscovering my TTRPG past, and as I should have expected, that sent me spiraling into the rabbit hole of just…a lot. It’s been my insulation. My security blanket. The source of a lot of sometimes blissful andContinue reading “What I learned this week about: 5th Edition”

What I am learning this year about: Living through historical moments

For years the Big question for people was “where were you on September 11th?” That was the defining moment, the axle spin that took us all from Point A to an unexpected, uncertain, unplanned-for Point B. And we could all pretty much describe in great detail – those of us old enough to remember –Continue reading “What I am learning this year about: Living through historical moments”

What I reminisced about this week: TTRPG

Monday Eric sent me a text with a meme from a DnD group on Facebook (I think it was Facebook) with a cat sitting in front of a character sheet. The DM is saying that the adventurers have encountered a wizard, who has placed a chalice of some bubbling, smoking liquid on the table. AndContinue reading “What I reminisced about this week: TTRPG”

What I learned this week about: heavy cotton

There are some things we learn that feel like a well-earned, long journey. So much of what I know about Salesforce feels like that; it’s a lot of small steps that feel insignificant at the time, and then I look back, and I realize just how far I’ve come. A lot of those steps don’tContinue reading “What I learned this week about: heavy cotton”

What I learned this week about: Pardot Form Handlers

A better title: What I learned last year about Form Handlers and am now getting around to posting. Holidays, amirite? I could probably write a whole series on Pardot Forms and Form Handlers, but it’s also probably been done already. Plus there is documentation available. Or you could pop over to Jenna Molby’s blog forContinue reading “What I learned this week about: Pardot Form Handlers”

What I learned this week about: Pardot Responsive Layouts

I built my first responsive email template in 2014 when I was just coming into the MOPs/Salesforce Admin portion of our programming and realized that my company’s marketing emails were NOT responsive. Me being me, I ended up sitting through a free webinar put on by Litmus to gain the basic understanding of how responsiveContinue reading “What I learned this week about: Pardot Responsive Layouts”

What I learned this week about Medieval dagger fighting

I’ll not get into why I needed to know this…just trust that it made sense at the time. And it wasn’t because I myself need to wield daggers. Fine. It’s because this year I am actually planning ahead of NaNo. I can’t say why. It went ok last year, when I had a flimsy sortContinue reading “What I learned this week about Medieval dagger fighting”

What I learned this week about Pardot Business Units

Okay, listen. I started out with Marketo. I cut my teeth with it, learned what marketing automation was, re-acquired some HTML and CSS skills to make email templates better, and I yelled a lot about how important it was for us to be segmenting our content. So much power. I say that because now IContinue reading “What I learned this week about Pardot Business Units”
