There are some seriously cool sports, government and entertainment openings over at ole Twitter. Looks like they’re revving up their production of curated and original online content. If you “live and breathe” the world of Twitter, you might want to check these out.
Avoiding laundry day? If you live in New York you have a few less excuses. Brinkmat lets you find laundromats that offer pickup and delivery in a location convenient to you, schedule your laundry and pay online. Hey now!
It’s not that I’m lazy, there are just certain chores I detest more than others. Maybe if we didn’t live in a 100-year-old home complete with super scary basement and laundry area, I’d enjoy it more. One thing is for sure, if I lived in New York, this is a service I’d use. I mean someone picks up my stinky laundry and delivers it back all clean and fresh? Love.
According to Brinkmat, “when you place an order, the cleaners are contacted directly to pick up your laundry. When it’s ready, they’ll deliver it back to you.” Honestly, what else can I say? It’s that simple.
What if your FAVE cleaners aren’t on the list? Make an intro between Brinkmat and the cleaner and if they end up on the site, Brinkmat gives you $100 in credit. All you have to do is give them a contact name, number.
Hey you. Yah, you. Like music? Like a good cause? Good. What are you doing February 23? That’s right, you’re going to see Regina Spektor. Here are the deets:
Regina Spektor is performing a benefit for one of my FAVE nonprofits, HIAS , at Frederick P. Rose Hall, home of Jazz at Lincoln Center, in New York City. If I lived in NYC, I would be there. Alas, I’ll be in snowy Chicago huddled around the fireplace with Baby K.
Tickets range from $55 to $250, and all tickets $80 and over are tax deductible, in the following amounts: $80 ($25 deductible), $100 ($45 deductible), $250 ($138 deductible). Get to see an amazing performer and a tax deduction? Yes, please.
**If you decide to buy a ticket or two, email me a copy of your receipt, your Twitter handle and a 140 character message I can tweet out for you. That’s right I’ll tweet whatever you want if you buy a ticket. I’m shameless for a good cause.** Email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tickets can be purchased at:
Jazz at Lincoln Center Box Office
Broadway at 60th Street, Ground Floor
Monday – Saturday: 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.
Sunday: 12 p.m. – 6 p.m.
She just released her newest album, ”What We Saw From The Cheap Seats,” but you can bet every seat is a great one.
Since immigrating through HIAS in 1989, the Russian-born Jewish singer-songwriter and pianist has sold out concerts around the globe. Go girl!
***#FORGOOD posts on Sarah’s Faves are causes, nonprofits and concepts that I believe in. From time to time you will see these posts here. It’s just my way of helping to get the word out for well-intentioned and world-improving peeps.***
How about working there for the “perfect platform for self expression”? Tumblr is hiring an editor.
The average Tumblr user creates 14 original posts each month, and reblogs 3. Half of those posts are photos. The rest are split between text, links, quotes, music, and video.
As of today there are 14,970,521,865 posts.
Looks like an editor will stay pretty busy.

- Editorial product development: Plan and execute new blogs, segments, features, and other products in multiple media (video, audio, text) to highlight creators on Tumblr
- Community sourcing: Work with Tumblr bloggers to source information about emerging creators and content
- Content curation: Find the best, most interesting creative expression on Tumblr and present it to Tumblr readers and the world
- Analysis: Devise metrics for measuring performance of all editorial products and staff
- Develop Tumblr’s unique voice
What they’re looking for (their words):
- Demonstrated experience conceiving and implementing original products and features online in multiple media
- A proven ability to ferret out interesting stories and render them into coherent narratives on deadline
- Sufficient range of knowledge and breadth of experience to oversee authentic coverage of our many communities, from contemporary art to cooking
- Extraordinary taste across multiple creative industries coupled with an openness to a broad and democratic creative community
