30 Days!

Blogging Heroes

Well, I made it to thirty days of blogging.

Somehow I managed to make the last one coincide when I would be out of town.

I have a few ideas on the backburner, but could not get to them over the past two days due to work travel.

What have I learned in thirty days?
1. Writing makes you think better.
2. Writing makes you think creatively.
3. I missed writing but apparently not thinking better or creatively.
4. You can write without an audience.
5. An audience can literally just be yourself.
6. Take your time finding what you want to say, but once you know what it is just say it.
7. Blog writers are EXTREMELY forgiving when it comes to spelling and grammar.
8. Blog writers probably ought to be more discriminating.
9. Finding folks who share similar ideas rocks.
10. Not trying to use a blog to sell crap is rewarding.

I think I can keep up this pace.

I am going to keep trying month by month to do AT LEAST a post/day. You will notice (which I don't suppose anyone will) that I technically did not get 30 in 30 days because the posting screwed up and I only REALLY did 29 in 30 and doubled up.

Considering the number of posts waiting to come out, I'd say I'm doing ok.

Thanks if you ARE paying attention and please, nitpick or comment- love it or hate it.

I can take it, I used to teach.

Slow Death or Rebirth for Myspace?

  Are we really watching the slow inevitable death of Myspace? With the integration with Facebook complete and  the push towards what appears to be a mobile only function , isn't it time to call this one? One report says that Myspace is making $200 million less this year. They are functionally giving up on Myspace Music , which was always their bread and butter. Without the music tie in, why would people BOTHER with Myspace? I'm talking about it because my wife's band has used every medium known to mankind to promote themselves online and Myspace has been nothing but dead weight from the very beginning. Only bands and their most ardent fans go there. The rest are on Facebook.  There is talk of selling Myspace, but who in their right mind would consider it? This will have some interesting implications for bands down the road. Many use Myspace as their de facto website, just pushing their domain name onto the customizable site. Now apparently, Reverbnation , a North Carolin

Being a Parent

While back, I wrote a post on Father's day about being a father and how being a parent is a job. I wistfully look back as I look forward to another school year quickly approaching and the evidence of my "work" is becoming less and less my handiwork. Our youngest has just moved on to middle school. Josh has moved into high school and the oldest has graduated from high school and about "start" her life. We've had a tacit arrangement with the kids. We do NOT want boomerang kids coming back to haunt us. So they have always been told, they are staying with us until they are REALLY ready to go out and that includes the joke that college has become. Sadly, despite the fact that I have spent a good chunk of my career working in higher education, I know that it is a folly to think that sending a child off to college is preparing them for much other than to have a lifetime of loans. Thankfully, Amanda has gotten the message. She has a plan to go to local c
