This is just awful. My fabulous new blog network, on which I had two blogs, Powered by Books and Powered by Writing, crashed and burned this afternoon. They had a power outage for a few hours and somewhere in the midst of that the software completely compromised itself. These are the nicest people and they […]
In your internet travels, hop on over and check out my new blogs. Looks as if they’ve gotten a lot of material posted over there, its still a start-up which went live only last Monday, so bear that in mind. Think its going to be a good blog network, though. I’ve written a number of […]
I’ve been remiss in posting because I’ve been the wee-est bit distracted by the usual suspects–the necessity of making a living (oh, yeah, that). But I have good news–I am, as of Tuesday, the official new host (hostess?) of two new blogs on the Powered By Everything blog network. I will be the one and […]
There’s a wonderful article about Kiva on the ABC News website. Its called "Finding Peace Through Paypal" and you can read it here. You may have noticed the large ad for the organization on this blog. I think its a great idea, a way to help other entrepeneurs help themselves. Apparently, we can now lend […]

This is an article that talks about the power of story and attempts to define story. The power of story, and how story can even save your life, happens to be one of my favorite topics. I think stories may even be capable of saving the world. Stories shape our lives. If you are involved […]
I’m working on an assignment about global warming. As my sister would say, Geezus. This is scary stuff. I’ve already been reduced to running around the house turning off lights and asking my son to show me how to change the air filter in the car (changing it monthly can save 800 pounds of carbon […]
Posted a lens on Squidoo about writing conferences last night. You can read it here.
We all know Seth Godin is a god (its even part of his name). I’ve been reading his free e-books on blogging and making lenses on Squidoo. (Go here to find them.) Seth talks about making blog entries short and sweet. Good strategy. What I find very interesting, though, is the contrast between the blog-writing […]
Lost in Translation was on some random cable channel last night (its probably always on some random cable channel somewhere). Love that movie. Though I still want to know: What does Bill Murray whisper in Scarlett Johansen’s ear at the end?
