I always ask myself what can I do to make Nomss.com more efficient? And how can I improve my blog? I recently discovered CoSchedule while randomly searching on the internet. It was one of enlightening moments, similar when I first discovered Hootsuite – a social media platform which manages and posts to multiple social profiles. Only problem is, you can not see it visually in a calendar format. CoSchedule looked promising and I loved the easy navigation and drag-and-drop editorial calendar for WordPress. More importantly, I liked that I could manage my blog posts and social media messaged all in one place – while I blogged. CoSchedule is one of my favorite blogging tools and is one tool every blogger needs!
CoSchedule integrates with
- Google+ Pages
CoSchedule offers a 14 day free trial that didn’t require any credit card information. Don’t you hate being billed for a free trial only to be charged for something that didn’t work? There are no risks, so I signed up! I’m so happy! Barely two days into my 14 day trial, and I’m a believer. I upgraded to a low monthly fee of $10! I loved it this much and didn’t need the remaining days to “test the water”.

I used WordPress for my blogging platform and CoSchedule works seamlessly with it. Blog posts are automatically added to your calender and you can drag a post from one date to another. Your scheduled social media messages also move with it. This is perfect to allow bloggers, like yourself, to create a series of messages, tweets to promote their blog posts. You are probably wondering, what the big deal is since WordPress can also schedule posts. Sure. But CoSchedule all corresponding social media messages are also schedules. Meaning, you don’t need to open your Twitter Account, Facebook Page, Google+ Page, Tumblr, etc. separately. That means increased effciciency and saving time so you can work on your next project or simply watch a movie.
For example, I scheduled this post on Monday, but here you are reading this on Thursday. I’m off on a road trip and not blogging. See? So easy! Clearly CoSchedule is the best blogging tools that every blogger needs!
Before I would worry about whether Barbie had the best haircut or if I could build my Lego set alone with the help of my dad. Today, I’m moving out for the first time, building a home with my soon to be husband and planning […]

I am a plant killer. Please don’t judge my gardening ineptitude. If you have ever drowned, fried, parched, wilted, exsiccated, dehydrated or burnt your plant than you know what I am talking about. I brought home a plant on the hottest summer’s day and left it on the porch to torch. The next day it was burnt and wilted. What?! The clerk said it needed sunlight! I’ve killed a cactus and turned it into gloop… Aren’t cactuses supposed to survive in the desert? It was only a month since I last watered it… who told me they were tough? Liars!
There is a cure now with technology and a simple sensor. You may think this is not really a food related post… Ah but it is. You see we bought some herbs to grow in our herb garden… Some fresh cilantro, rosemary, thyme and basil… Everything seems to be doing fine except cilantro – wilted from life.
Koubachi, a new app developed by technical universities in Germany (ETH Zurich) and Switzerland (Swiss Institute of Technology) will now give you thirsty houseplants more TLC (tender loving care) it deserves. It uses a Wi-Fi sensor and an iPhone app to collect data (soil moisture, light intensity and temperature) and sent to your smartphone. It will tell you when they crave some water, when you are murdering them, or simply want to commit suicide than to be tortured. The app tracks over 135 species of plants including orchids, cilantro, tomatoes and other floral bloomies.
The app is free but the sensor costs €122.60. For now during my Dummy stage of my gardening career I think I will pass. The price is a bit steep, but I do wish my plant will text me next time it’s about to drown or burn!
