In my last blog I talked about how my present to my mom this holiday was going to be showing her how to set up her own blogsite.  Sorry to say my mom decided she didn’t really want to blog.  Disappointing, but not unexpected.  But then on CNN today I was listening to some guy talk […]

I started my blog a month ago.  From there I got on Facebook for fun and LinkedIn for business.  I used Technorati to choose which blogs to subscribe to and Google Reader to have one place to see new posts from my favorite blogs.  I use WordPress for my bloghost and PollDaddy to post questions.  I read […]

Well, this is likely to be a very short post.  You know why?  I wanted to compare the blogs of two high-end department stores — Bloomingdales and Saks Fifth Avenue. Guess what?  Not a blog in site.

Today’s New York Times’ story, “The Man Behind the Whispers About Obama,” reveals the source responsible for planting the lie about Barack Obama being a Muslim, a lie that continues to this day to get alot of traction in certain circles. The most persistent falsehood about Senator Barack Obama’s background first hit in 2004 just two weeks after […]

Multi-tasking or ADHD.  The first sounds so much better, doesn’t it?  Like you’re purposely taking on 18 things to do simultaneously.  ADHD, meanwhile, makes it sound like you’d like to focus on one thing at a time but hey, did you see that pretty butterfly? Whatever.  Web 2.0 and blogging put the world at the speed I […]
