Tuesday Musing : Fellow Blogger [https://aprillwood.wordpress.com/]

Every Tuesday, I share my interesting-fellow-favorite blogger’s details. They are blogging on various topics starting from poem to book to movie to fashion to photography to anything interesting.

April Wood [A Well Read Woman – AWRW] – Some blogger’s writing is so captivating that you always want to visit them again and again. AWRW is fall in that category.  I am not sure when I have started following her but I have read all book reviews from AWRW. I am not-up-to-the-mark compare to her but you can see her influence in my book review style as well.

About AWRW from her blog:

pinkglassesApril Wood is an aspiring romance author, book blogger, author interviewer, and a caffeinated book reviewer. When she is not glued to her computer or a book, she is busy taming wild spiderwort, (God those plants are annoying!), obsessing over her gardens to the point of insanity, feeding wildlife, and propagating her ever-growing collection of African violets. She lives in a beautiful historic tudor colonial with her Rock Star husband and their beloved black cat, in lovely Massachusetts, USA.

My mission is to promote authors and spread the word about great books. My reviews are 100% honest, and are based on content, character development, plot, and personal taste. As such, I only review books that I believe I will enjoy, not only as a book reviewer, but as a fan. If I don’t think I will enjoy reading your work, I will not accept your book for review. However, my accepting your work does not guarantee a positive review. I will publish my review regardless of the rating. As an aspiring romance author, my book review policy may change without notice as to focus on my own writing. Anything I have agreed to review will still be done as I’ve promised to do. Thank you for understanding.

#ILookLikeAnEngineer Aims To Spread Awareness About Gender Diversity In Tech

It’s started discussion at various platforms when OneLogin platform engineer, Isis Wenger, appeared in company’s recruiting campaign with light smile and less make-up. Some people find her smirking but I don’t find it (campaign) unappealing or unpleasant. Rather I find it cool, motivating and supporting to gender diversity in tech. It doesn’t matter how female engineer looks a like or whether she has unbrushed hair or minimal make-up or with full of make-up. The only thing matters is, she is an engineer with same capability of male engineer.

Checkout #ILookLikeAnEngineer is trending on Twitter in San Francisco, where people (including Wenger) started posting to the conversation. Isis Wenger also posted her view on Medium.com.

What you think?

 

TechCrunch

When OneLogin Platform Engineer Isis Wenger agreed to participate in the company’s recruiting campaign, she felt pretty apathetic about it. She also didn’t anticipate the backlash that has come from it.

“As a genuine introvert I have never cared much about gaining public attention and I really wasn’t prepared for how much everything blew up,” Wenger told me in an email. “Honestly when I see ads, I don’t think much of them and I certainly don’t try to read deeply into them. It was surprising to me to see that other people did.”

The ad, pictured above, is part of OneLogin’s efforts to recruit more engineers. The recruiting campaign featured several of OneLogin’s engineers along with statements about why they like working at the company. For ultimate visibility, OneLogin put up the ads in both BART and MUNI stations at Embarcadero in San Francisco, OneLogin Director of Design and Brand Experience…

Tuesday Musing : Fellow Blogger [http://bookjourney.net/]

Every Tuesday, I share my interesting-fellow-favorite blogger’s details. They are blogging on various topics starting from poem to book to movie to fashion to photography to anything interesting.

Sheila [Book Journey] This is one of those blogs which inspires me to read books in mass. I have started following Book Journey when I was very new to blogging world. Author of blog, Sheila, is bookaholic which reflects in book journey. If you are an Avid reader, you must have to follow “Book Journey“.

About Book Journey / Sheila from her blog:

I am a book lover, mom of two wonderful grown boys (one who just graduated from 4 years in the Navy and one in who just finished College for Graphic Design) and wife of an incredibly patient and loving man named Al.  He is my Super Hero.   Non Fiction.

I live in Central Minnesota.  No I don’t say “ayyyyy” or “you betcha”…. unless I am being sarcastic.  Which NEVER happens.  Ok.. maybe sometimes. ;)

I believe in Living Life To The Fullest, Jesus and The Bible, laughing until my sides hurt, family first, making time for friends, working hard and playing hard, team sports, stretching myself to the limit, saying yes to good adventures, books that make me think and books that make me feel, if you are going for the ice cream cone – GO BIG, bucket lists, doing something new each day, believing in your dreams, reading in the sunshine, playing in the rain, the magical powers of CHOCOLATE,  finding the opportunities in everything, learning something new, making memories, and curly fries are better than plain fries.

I am a lifetime bookaholic and proud of it.  I have had my nose stuck in a book since I was 5.  In grade school I won the bookworm award. I also won the Oscar the Grouch award because my desk in grade school looked like a trash can but really…. need we split hairs?

Most recently I left my job of 10 years to follow what I truly love doing… writing.  I am working on a book currently, write for several magazines, and Freelance my skills for writing articles, reviews, blogging and more.  I absolutely love it.

My dream for this blog is for it to be a place that you can find humor,bookish discussions, a next great read, and a virtual cup of coffee.  Cream and sugar optional.

Stop by often – there’s always good conversation and I would love to chat with all of you!
