John from Freelance Folder sent a shout on Digg my way and then I added FreshPeel on Twitter this morning, who then asked me to pass the info on about the book sale to as many people as I could. So I not only Dugg, Stumbled,Tweeted, and commented, but I am also posting a little post about the sale of the “The Age Of Conversation Bum Rush”. According to John’s Digg submission,
We are launching The Age of Conversation up the Amazon charts. The book “brings together over 100 of the world’s leading marketers, writers, thinkers and creative innovators in a ground-breaking and unusual publication.” All of the proceeds generated from book sales and referrals will be donated to Variety, The Children’s Charity.
Make a video about Why you blog, and put a link to the video in the comments of Darren’s post. He will then make a post that combines all the videos into one. Deadline is April 1st(no its not a joke)
Why do I blog?
I started blogging quite a while ago(must be well over 3 years now) with a Blogger.com blog about creating an Internet Portal. I may have had a blog on another platform before that, but at any rate I have lost track of it so the Network of Sites will remain my oldest blog.
So it would seem I started blogging as a business venture, the portal site was going to document the development of the portal. Posting on the Network of sites blog has been sporadic over its lifetime, even at the very beginning.
I soon switched to WordPress, where I started and experimental blog, My Rectal Thermometer Blog. I know strange name. I think the basis for this was the joke about the guy who has the job as quality control at Johnson and Johnson’s rectal thermometer department…yup. that would make your job look great…lol
What Reasons do I have for Blogging?
To promote my business.
To promote others businesses.
To write about passions.
To write about personal stuff such as
Well this is a short post, hopefully the video will cover a bit more.
This is the third video that was recorded for this post. The first had no sound because I was a duffous and forgot to change the sound to my video cams microphone…duh. The second was way too monotone. Hopefully this one will do.
The deadline for submitting a logo to enter into the Logo Contest has passed. I had thought about extending the deadline due to the limited number of entries(3) . I had said I wanted a minimum number of entries in the initial Logo Contest post, but I did not state that I needed a minimum in the actual Logo Contest post. So Three entries, 1/10th of my goal is what we got. Oh well. Three is better than none.
Deb Bixler, who created the awesome DebBixler Logo is also the first person to cast her vote.
