Dissecting A Week 2



Let's look back again this week starting from the earliest:
I'm still not sure what to think of being fans and friends of fellow bloggers. It is odd. I don't see myself on the same plane as many of the other bloggers, but that's me. Do well written folks see themselves on the same plane as others? I doubt it, thus how do you move beyond being fans? It would be easy if people were close to each other and saw each other on a regular basis yes? Just like any other networker, but that's not quite the case here. Just because you read someone else's blog and comment and perhaps even banter back and forth does not make you much more than consumer's of each other's verbiage does it?
My blog is a mishmosh, I know. I've contemplated starting several and spacing out my writing accordingly, but do I have the wherewithal to do so? The title was funny to me at the time, but seems a bit arrogant in retrospect. But I am trying to keep to my own gut on what I write. The ultimate in ONLY writing for yourself.
This was a cheapie, but what the heck. I really did like sharing learning what he was talking about. I'm trying to emulate him but not sure how to on each front just yet. But that's the point of most these types of posts, ain't it? To try to achieve the model or at least find one.
I am still very fascinated by the geolocation thing. So far, I see nothing of value beyond the venues themselves. This dustup between Chipotle and 4SQ was quickly over. Facebook is just too much a behemoth. Is LBS going to be as big as everyone is saying? Not unless the venues start adopting bigger and faster.
This almost feels like an overreaction, but based on a few of the comments I've heard back, I don't think so. I am still curious, who did you USED to listen to that you don't listen to anymore?
Ok, this was a gimme.
I find some of my better thoughts arrive quick and out of no where. Those kind of "wondering" moments or when I ask a question that sounds like something my five year old asks. Thank god for Google that those "why is the sky blue" questions are easily answered. I have them all the time and I think/hope that is a good sign for me.
