More Proof That Great Headlines Don’t Matter

After seven years as a blogger I can guarantee that the headline on this post will generate more than a few pageviews. Many of you will recognize it as linkbait and click anyway. Bloggers love to read and talk about blogging.  I do too but sometimes I have to get away from it. This blog that you are reading, TheJackB is chock full of good information about blogging. This post is going to cover a variety of topics and since I touched upon blogging let me share a few things with you.

Shonali has a nice post about tools that you can use to make blogging easier for you. Those of you who live in California should read Jessica’s post about bloggers, Amazon, eBay and sales tax.

My pal Superman shot over a link to a company that turns RSS feeds into podcasts. It sounds pretty cool. I haven’t had time to really play with it yet but I will. I am on the fence about letting my kid get a Mohawk. I used to be dead set against it, but I might consider it during the summer. My guess is that I’d probably end up saying no, but the fact that I am open to it surprises me a little bit. Might have to blog about that so I that I come up with something more coherent.

There is an interview with some crazy dad blogger at Soulati’TUDE. Got in a fight with that guy more than once- it is probably the most difficult opponent I have ever had because we are so evenly matched. I love coffee far more than I should but not so much that I’ll pay for the special Cat Poop Caffeine Cup of Joe. But if you offered me a cup I might try it.

In one of my posts I used this quote from In My Life:

“But of all these friends and lovers
There is no one compares with you
And these memories lose their meaning
When I think of love as something new

Though I know I’ll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I’ll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more”

I was surprised when I received a comment telling me that they were beautiful words. They are beautiful but they aren’t mine. I suppose that this is another case where I can yell at someone for being older than me. If the words didn’t exist I might have come up with them or maybe not.

Gini and the crew are talking about the Google + Project. It is an interesting idea but I am not so sure. Watch this video and tell me what you think.

Speaking of videos I ran this one about the social media revolution earlier but it bears repeating

I am ready to get out of Dodge and thinking about ways to do it. This might be a good option. Parents have great stories, even if they are degenerates who root for teams that rhyme with meltics and matriots.

And now my friends I bid you adieu and adont do like I do unless you enjoy voodoo. Don’t ask about that last line- three hours of sleep and limited coffee wreak havoc upon me.
