Beware of the Blog
I once came across a Weblog that had a single entry. It went something like this: “I am posting this entry to my new Weblog as a reminder to myself to post something new every day and keep this Weblog fresh.” Ironically, the blog had not been updated in months. That was the only entryContinue reading “Beware of the Blog”
Iraq of servers

Here’s the latest Blogstakes contest: Win a Slappa HardBody CD case. (I told you they’d make a great Blogstakes contest.) I’ll be announcing the winners of the BrowserCam Blogstakes next.
I got my hands on some Slappa Hardbodies yesterday. No, no, no. They’re not what you think. They’re these rugged, velvet-lined CD cases that also hold all of your CD booklets. They’d make a great Blogstakes contest. I also got a copy of the ultimate guide to business blogging. That’s not what they’re calling it, but it isContinue reading “Frosted Blogstakes”
Do yourself a favor and go see the new Will Ferrell film, Elf. Don’t be selfish; take a friend and share the laughs. Myself, I would go see it a twelfth time if I didn’t have so much self-restraint. Do you like angelfish? If I wasn’t so concerned for their welfare, I would buy a barrelful ofContinue reading “Subliminal snowmen”
