Snailbird On Going Green.

Going Green

We here at Snailbird (look at me sounding all professional) believe in the Earth and the good that it does for us. In return, we feel that we should give back in every possible way. Recently, Ash and I took part in Earth Hour, a yearly event to call for action on the hot topic of climate change. Of course, we do the best we can in our daily rituals as well. We recycle, we compost, the majority of our food is organic, our cleaning supplies are non-toxic or homemade, and lately we’ve been sharing one car (though that one is kind of forced at the moment). While we aren’t as extreme as some, I feel we do more for the world than most. So why not make my blog go green as well?

Make it Green!

The Make it Green! (German) project is a small but growing initiative in Germany that is attempting to get the blogging world involved in helping the environment and reduce their carbon footprint. How will this help?

“We are planting trees in cooperation with the Arbor Day Foundation in Plumas National Forest in Northern California for our project to neutralize the carbon footprint of blogs. Thousands of wildfires have burned in many national forests over the past ten years and 88.000 acres of Plumas’ were destroyed by two fires in 2007. For replanting this area we need help from bloggers all over the world! For every participating blog, we plant a tree. One blog – one tree.”

How awesome is that? I’m more than willing to do my very small part in this project. Are you? Visit the How You Can Join page (English) to find out more. Blog for a better world!

And the Winner is…

I always love these announcements. The winner of the Custom Canvas Print Giveaway is…

Number 1: David Cole!

Congratulations, David! I hope that once you get your Pike Place Market picture printed, you’ll let us see it. I’m definitely intrigued. A representative from UPrinting.com will be emailing you soon about the next few steps to get your prize.

Thank you all for playing and stay tuned for more giveaways here at Snailbird!

Finding Something Sacred.

Sacred by MichelCh
A Sacred Place by MichelCh

“We do not believe in ourselves until someone reveals that deep inside us something is valuable, worth listening to, worthy of our trust, sacred to our touch. Once we believe in ourselves we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight or any experience that reveals the human spirit.” – e.e. cummings

The Family Menagerie on Hiatus

Hiatus

Hey all. I’ve been extremely busy lately due to my day job, my freelancing gigs, and volunteer work with animals, and because of that, The Family Menagerie has been put on the back burner for awhile. I’m hoping that by mid-April, I’ll have time to pick it up again. I’m still doing small illustrations that I need to start putting up, but the comic itself is going on vacation for awhile. No worries, this isn’t the last you’ve seen of it!

Wednesday O’ Webcomics No. 7

I’ve got a rather large list growing, thanks to all the twitters sending me #webcomicwednesday suggestions. Keep them coming!

Dreaming Away the Day

Awaken by CyanBlutgeissel
Awaken by CyanBlutgeissel

A daydream is a meal at which images are eaten. Some of us are gourmets, some gourmands, and a good many take their images precooked out of a can and swallow them down whole, absent-mindedly and with little relish. ~W.H. Auden

Wednesday of Webcomics!

The world wide web continues to grow as I stumble upon more jewels that I have to share with you. While my own webcomic is on the side burner right now, at least I can enjoy these.

  • 10 Reasons Why You Aren’t Done Yet
    I am guilty of constantly telling my girlfriend, “Hold on, just a few more minutes!” and before I know it, hours have passed. Here are some of the reasons this happens and what I may possibly be able to do about it (I guess this article could also be called “10 Ways I Can Save My Relationship”).
