Shopping Local Helps Frederick Economy

Downtown Frederick was abuzz last Saturday with local shoppers shopping local. Many residents and visitors alike took to the streets to help celebrate Small Business Saturday, the marketing brainchild of American Express. The event was designed to drive shoppers to small, non-big box stores across the country.

Two downtown merchants, The Muse (located at 19 N, Market St. Frederick Maryland) and Simply Beautiful Boutique, promoted their participation in Small Business Saturday on their Facebook pages.

"I believe that it is important to shop local because it helps our community in so many ways! I would so much rather spend my money locally and support my community and the businesses in it," said Whitney Bingham, owner of The Muse.

Elizabeth Pumphrey, owner of Simply Beautiful Boutique, is also passionate about helping local businesses. "Small businesses are the life blood of downtown areas. Small businesses help to support and encourage downtown living, shopping [and] vacationing."

Pumphrey added that sometimes smaller merchants are overlooked because their prices may be a few dollars more expensive than larger chain retailers, but there are benefits to shopping local. "I try to buy unique and hard to find specialty items in my boutique [to create] a destination shopping experience. Small businesses are able to provide higher quality products and superior customer service than our big box competitors."

Bingham reported that her business has been doing well this season. She attributes this success to the unique nature of the items in her store. "Everything I sell is handmade and the majority of the store is locally made. By purchasing a gift at The Muse, not only are you supporting a locally owned business, you are also supporting a local artist, many of which live in your own neighborhood," said Bingham.

"I am hoping for a stronger December than last year. It seems people are waiting a little longer to shop this year than they did last year. I had very few people looking for Christmas presents in October as compared to last year," said Pumphrey.

Pumphrey also extended a challenge to local shoppers by saying, "I encourage everyone to spend $25 at four small businesses a month. If everyone were to do this each and every month, the chain effect would be fantastic. It would help small businesses survive in this stressful economy."
Do you plan to shop local for the holidays? What are your favorite locally owned merchants?

Pedicab Bicycle Ride Through Downtown Frederick On Sale $10

MacFawn's Green Rides in Frederick Maryland offers rickshaw like bicycle rides downtown.
I saw this post on the online site (well I saw if from one of my Facebook friends posts)

TODAY’S DEAL: $10 for 30 Minute Pedicab ride in downtown Frederick ($30 Value)


$10 for 30 minute pedicab tour of historic downtown Frederick, MD. X-mas light tours are available.
Full Company Details:
MacFawn's Green Rides - Frederick, MD
They are called pedi-taxis, and they resemble something you might see on the streets of a big city, which is exactly where Kenneth MacFawn, who started Green Rides in Downtown Frederick got the idea.
The bike taxis can take you anywhere you want to go in downtown Frederick.  For two dollars and zero fuel emissions, you can be pedaled to any restaurant, bar, shop, or parking deck in the city.  A way to boost local business.
If you are looking for a nice, green family adventure, you can take tours around town as well.  Jonathon Fitz-Enz had noticed the pedi-taxis around town, and took his family for a spin on Friday evening.  "I liked it a lot! It's very nice, a nice way to see the city," he said after the ride was over.
Instead of burning gasoline, these taxis only burn calories, which the drivers don't seem to mind.  A green way to paint the town red.

Your Credit Score Can Hurt Your Employment Search

Having Trouble Landing A Better Job?

Maybe your credit score is hurting your chances of seeking better employment

Raise Your Credit Score 100 Points in 45 Days

I recently attended a class with a lender and got some great information about credit scores. Here are my notes:

Credit Scores are made up of 5 sub-scores, which all need to be kept in shape:

1. Payment History …………..35% Bills should be paid as agreed the most recent 6 months. The highest weight is put on the highest payments, mortgage, car payments, etc.

2. Balances Carried …………..30% Keep your balance to a ratio as low as possible. Outstanding balances should be less than 30% of the available credit. Over 50% is really not good. For example, if you have a credit card with a $3,000 limit, you shouldn’t have more than a $1,000 balance. Spread the balances between cards, don’t have all the balance on one card with the others at zero. Don’t close credit cards. The older the history of the card, the better.

3. Credit History ………………15% The longer the credit history the better. Long credit history paid as agreed is a postive impact on credit score. So don’t close accounts, especially if they have a long history, that is a negative impact on credit score.

4. Mix Of Accounts ……………10% It is ideal to have installment and revolving accounts. Mortgage loan, auto loan, 3 to 5 credit cards (more is ok, too), paid on time over 1 to 2 years. A HELOC should be greater than $40,000 or it will report as a revolving account versus a mortgage.

5. Inquiries ……………………..10% If you are applying for a mortgage, you are allowed an unlimited number of credit inquiries for 14 days, after that inquiries cause you to lose points. Each inquiry averages 5 points, only the first 10 inquiries count each year, after 10 it will not affect your credit score. Normally, you are allowed to pull 1 credit report within 45 days with no negative effect.Take good care of your credit score, it will take good care of you:)

Inquiries that don’t hurt the score: Job related, insurance/utilities, account review, personal ( and promotional (pre-approved offers in the mail).

Blemished credit can be costly, low credit scores mean higher interest rates. What can you do?

1. Check your own credit score.

2. Pay past due accounts. Past due accounts can include those that are 1 day late. Past due accounts do not include Judgements and collection accounts.

3. Get rid of late payments. Have them removed by phoning your creditor and requesting late payments be removed. You must be persistent and work you way up the ladder to someone who can help you. Always get a letter that documents: Name/address/account number, specific late to be removed, on company letterhead/signed by employee.

4. Get your credit card balances down, try getting credit limits increased. Every 6 months request an increase to your credit limit. Have the creditor base the increase on your credit history. However, if the creditor must pull credit, don’t, it will lower credit score.

5. Start or keep making payments on time.

6. Do not close old accounts, this will hurt your score. Use old accounts periodically, charge a small amount and pay it off immediately. Don’t reply to pre-approved offers. Don’t consolidate. Don’t pay off all collections until the loan process is over.

If you enjoyed this post, please consider leaving a comment and subscribe to my RSS feed or via email to ensure you can enjoy the latest post(s).

If you wonder if it’s worth the trouble, think about this: Increasing your credit score by 10 points will net interest savings of $100,000 over 30 years (on a $500,000 mortgage loan.)

It’s worth the trouble!

Barbara Fritchie Classic


Follow on Facebook here


Sports & Recreation - Extreme Sports


Like any bona fide classic, the Fritchie has stood the test of time. The Fritchie is held at The Great Frederick Fairgrounds.
It is the oldest running half mile in the country.
It's a Fourth of July tradition in Frederick. But when it started, the race wasn't even held on the Fourth. The Fritchie ran Memorial Day. And back then, it was called the Delphey Brothers Classic, promoted by J. Paul and Chester Delphey.

Facebook and LinkedIn Can Get You Hired Or Fired

6 Career-Killing Facebook Mistakes

by Erin Joyce, Managing Editor
Wednesday, April 7, 2010
provided by
With more than 400 million active visitors, Facebook is arguably the most popular social networking site out there. And while the site is known for the casual social aspect, many users also use it as a professional networking tool. With that kind of reach, Facebook can be a valuable tool for connecting to former and current colleagues, clients and potential employers. In fact, surveys suggest that approximately 30% of employers are using Facebook to screen potential employees — even more than those who check LinkedIn, a strictly professional social networking site. Don't make these Facebook faux-pas — they might cost you a great opportunity.

Dealing With 9 Coworker Personality Conflicts

A Bigger Salary or Better Benefits?
Is Your High-Profile Job Worth the Price?
1. Inappropriate Pictures
It may go without saying, but prospective employers or clients don't want to see pictures of you chugging a bottle of wine or dressed up for a night at the bar. Beyond the pictures you wouldn't want your grandparents to see, seemingly innocent pictures of your personal life will likely not help to support the persona you want to present in your professional life.

2. Complaining About Your Current Job
You've no doubt done this at least once. It could be a full note about how much you hate your office, or how incompetent your boss is, or it could be as innocent as a status update about how your coworker always shows up late. While everyone complains about work sometimes, doing so in a public forum where it can be found by others is not the best career move. Though it may seem innocent, it's not the kind of impression that sits well with a potential boss.

3. Posting Conflicting Information to Your Resume
If you say on your resume that your degree is from Harvard, but your Facebook profile says you went to UCLA, you're likely to be immediately cut from the interview list. Even if the conflict doesn't leave you looking better on your resume, disparities will make you look at worst like a liar, and at best careless.

4. Statuses You Wouldn't Want Your Boss to See
Everyone should know to avoid statuses like "Tom plans to call in sick tomorrow so he can get drunk on a Wednesday. Who cares that my big work project isn't done?" But you should also be aware of less flamboyant statuses like "Sarah is watching the gold medal hockey game online at her desk". Statuses that imply you are unreliable, deceitful, and basically anything that doesn't make you look as professional as you'd like, can seriously undermine your chances at landing that new job.

5. Not Understanding Your Security Settings
The security settings on Facebook have come a long way since the site started. It is now possible to customize lists of friends and decide what each list can and cannot see. However, many people do not fully understand these settings, or don't bother to check who has access to what. If you are going to use Facebook professionally, and even if you aren't, make sure you take the time to go through your privacy options. At the very least, your profile should be set so that people who are not your friend cannot see any of your pictures or information.

6. Losing by Association
You can't control what your friends post to your profile (although you can remove it once you see it), nor what they post to their own profiles or to those of mutual friends. If a potential client or employer sees those Friday night pictures your friend has tagged you in where he is falling down drunk, it reflects poorly on you, even if the picture of you is completely innocent. It's unfortunate, but we do judge others by the company they keep, at least to some extent. Take a look at everything connected to your profile, and keep an eye out for anything you wouldn't want to show your mother.

Facebook Can Help You Get Hired … or Fired
The best advice is to lock down your personal profile so that only friends you approve can see anything on that profile. Then, create a second, public profile on Facebook purely for professional use. This profile functions like an online resume, and should only contain information you'd be comfortable telling your potential employer face to face. Having a social networking profile is a good thing — it presents you as technologically and professionally savvy. Just make sure your profile is helping to present your best side — not the side that got drunk at your buddy's New Year's party.

Ten Ways to Use LinkedIn to Find a Job

by Guy Kawasaki

Searching for a job can suck if you constrain yourself to the typical tools such as online jobs boards, trade publications, CraigsList, and networking with only your close friends. In these kinds of times, you need to use all the weapons that you can, and one that many people don’t—or at least don’t use to the fullest extent, is
From Maryland Employment
LinkedIn has over thirty-five million members in over 140 industries. Most of them are adults, employed, and not looking to post something on your Wall or date you. Executives from all the Fortune 500 companies are on LinkedIn. Most have disclosed what they do, where they work now, and where they’ve worked in the past. Talk about a target-rich environment, and the service is free.
Here are ten tips to help use LinkedIn to find a job. If you know someone who’s looking for a job, forward them these tips along with an invitation to connect on LinkedIn. Before trying these tips, make sure you’ve filled out your profile and added at least twenty connections
  1. Get the word out. Tell your network that you’re looking for a new position because a job search these days requires the “law of big numbers” There is no stigma that you’re looking right now, so the more people who know you’re looking, the more likely you’ll find a job. Recently, LinkedIn added “status updates” which you can use to let your network know about your newly emancipated status.
  2. Get LinkedIn recommendations from your colleagues. A strong recommendation from your manager highlights your strengths and shows that you were a valued employee. This is especially helpful if you were recently laid off, and there is no better time to ask for this than when your manager is feeling bad because she laid you off. If you were a manager yourself, recommendations from your employees can also highlight leadership qualities.
  3. Find out where people with your backgrounds are working. Find companies that employ people like you by doing an advanced search for people in your area who have your skills. For example, if you’re a web developer in Seattle, search profiles in your zip code using keywords with your skills (for example, JavaScript, XHTML, Ruby on Rails) to see which companies employ people like you.
  4. Find out where people at a company came from. LinkedIn “Company Profiles” show the career path of people before they began work there. This is very useful data to figure out what a company is looking for in new hires. For example, Microsoft employees worked at Hewlett-Packard and Oracle.
  5. Find out where people from a company go next. LinkedIn’s “Company Profiles” also tell you where people go after leaving the company. You can use this to track where people go after leaving your company as well as employees of other companies in your sector. (You could make the case that this feature also enables to figure out which companies to avoid, but I digress.)
  6. Check if a company is still hiring. Company pages on LinkedIn include a section called “New Hires” that lists people who have recently joined the company. If you have real chutzpah, you can ask these new hires how they got their new job. At the very least you can examine their backgrounds to surmise what made them attractive to the new employer.
  7. Get to the hiring manager. LinkedIn’s job search engine allows you to search for any kind of job you want. However, when you view the results, pay close attention to the ones that you’re no more than two degrees away from. This means that you know someone who knows the person that posted the job—it can’t get much better than that. (Power tip: two degrees is about the limit for getting to hiring managers. I never help friends of friends of friends.) Another way to find companies that you have ties to is by looking at the “Companies in Your Network” section on LinkedIn’s Job Search page.
  8. Get to the right HR person. The best case is getting to the hiring manager via someone who knows him, but if that isn’t possible you can still use LinkedIn to find someone inside the company to walk your resume to the hiring manager or HR department. When someone receives a resume from a coworker even if she doesn’t know the coworker, she almost always pays attention to it.

Frederick Maryland Job Openings

Frederick Md Job Openings Off The Beaten Path

I just stumbled upon a list of job openings that I'd never thought to post and I found it by accident:
