My Crappy Advice

my crappy advice dear crappy

Are you stuck on a DIY project? Do you have a design dilemma? Is there no one in your life that you trust for opinions? I’m here for you. I’ve got pretty good taste, and mad DIY skills. Maybe I can help you figure it out.

If you’ve got a home issue you’re struggling with and you’d like my advice, you’ve come to the right place. Perhaps… You see, I’m looking for issues that I can help with in a visual way that will either help other readers, or, at the very least entertain them. With that in mind, not every issue submitted will be addressed. I’m sorry about that, but I hope you understand. If yours is a problem I can work with, I will contact you to discuss the issue in further detail.

I’ve got a submission form set up for you at the bottom of this page. I ask for your first name, but you are absolutely free to give me an alias if you’d prefer to stay completely anonymous. Your email address will never be published or shared in any way.

I need you to show me pictures of your dilemma. The submission form will not work if you do not attach any pictures. I must have at least one picture of your dilemma, but the more, the better. If I am able to feature your issue on the blog, your pictures will be published so they need to be decent. No, I don’t mean chaste (though… that too, actually), but I do mean at least 1000 pixels wide with good lighting and no people in the images. (Pets are OK because I love animals and so does the internet.) Some dilemmas will require that I manipulate your images using photo editing software, so keep that in mind when taking photos. Higher resolution is always better. I may also ask you to provide additional photos as required. You may select multiple files to attach, but they have to be in the same location on your device. If you’re on a computer, hold down the ctrl key (cmd on a Mac) while you click your images. Photo submissions must be in jpg or jpeg format.

Sound good? Great! Just one more thing before you send me your problems. You’ve got to read the legal crap. I know. I’m sorry.
