Why do bloggers keep falling off?

Does the novelty of blogging wear off so quickly that people aren’t keeping up their blogs? I notice that many of the people I have linked to have just let their blogs go. And I am actively unlinking for sure. Are we all such perfectionists that if we can’t be the best (or be Scoble,…

I’m still here..

Feeling a little guilty for not posting recently, especially after the disappointment I expressed over people starting and then abandoning their blogs. I have killer allergies and I am having a hard time doing anything more than work my 8 hours and sleep this week. I had allergy therapy some years ago (don’t ask…it involved…

Subservient Chicken

Scoble is talking about the subservient chicken website again over on his blog. It’s a viral marketing tool used by Burger King. Here’s a direct link to the Reuters news feed (BK says the campaign worked). In the spirit of “thinking too much” (I told you I did this), I just have to say this: maybe…

Speaking of feeling my age…

Here’s an 80s pop music quiz. First let me say I’m a bit of a pop culture junkie and I turned 12 in 1980 so I remember all this stuff pretty well (and I look young for my age, so there!). Plus I have a memory for details like annoying song lyrics that don’t make…

When work is a nice vacation from your life

I started getting blog guilt today. I get so disappointed when I find a blog that looks like it will be good but then it gets ignored by the owner. I don’t want to become one of those blog owners. My reason for not blogging is physical exhaustion…from yard work…that I did Friday. My yard…

didtheyreadit.com?…Idon’tlikeit.com

I read about the new service called didtheyreadit.com that lets you know not only whether the receiver read your e-mail, but how long they looked at it and whether they forwarded it. Count me among the people “freaked out” by this and I only hope that technology exists that can block this kind of activity. I’ve…

The keywords you use to find me…

I had a smart moment today and decided to check out the google (and other search engine) links on my referrers page so I could understand what keywords are pulling up my blog. This was after John Porcaro mentioned how many of his links are through google search pages. So also having Internet visibility on…

Good weekend…

I’ll post on something work related later. When I get over a life changing event in my life that occurred this weekend..I got Tivo. When my friend Ann told me that she had it, I realized that “woman with Tivo” was not an oxymoron. Plus, Ann likes sports as much as I do (she’s also…

I think about marketing too much…

I think about everything too much (no, I really do), especially marketing. If I had to think of a word to describe myself, it would be “analyzer” (not strong and outspoken as one of my co-workers recommends). My commute to and from work is pretty short but I have whole drives home where I am…

My first week as a blogger

OK, so it hasn’t really been a week yet. It’s been three days, but that is at least a week in Microsoft time. I’ve learned a lot this week… **sometimes, if you think you are getting a headache from staring at your computer screen, you just need to loosen up your pony tail **no matter…
