The Long Road of Hope. And exercises in procrastination.

Tina Turner, We Don’t Need Another Hero

I’m working again on my science fiction novel. The first book of many (or so I like to say to myself). I attempt now the second rewrite.

“Do,” says Yoda.

“Oh – I’m facing a mountain of do, little rodent-man,” I reply to the venerable and wise Jedi Master.

The little dude wanders off muttering to himself – it sounds like the hushed barks of a dreaming dog.

Blog Soup 2011.11.04 Customer Connection, Social Web, and Funk

Blog Soup

Blog Soup 2011.11.04. How funky are you?

Customer connection is key to doing business. Because without customers, you don’t have a business. Bloggers are starting to get that. Privacy, Liking, Protest, and inhumanity – those are just a few of the trending topics in the blogosphere.

Oh- Triberrites… Triberr is now on full manual. You’ll need to approve each tweet from your tribe members – if you want them to keep loving on you.

I read a lot of blogs. Maybe, too many. I comment on a lot of blog posts. Maybe, too many. If you are a Triberrati, you do too.

A Triberrati is a blogger that stands out in the Triberr community. Triberr is a web app that connects bloggers and helps them to curate each other on Twitter. You can learn all about Triberr by reading any of the following posts about it.

What is the mindset of a gentleman or a lady? What are you doing with your life? Is it meaningful? Exciting? Are you making a difference? These are just a few of the things that bloggers are thinking about these days.

Today is Adrian Klein’s birthday. He’s the rockstar that helps me make podcasts – if you didn’t know. Happy Birthday, Rockstar!

Today, I made sarmala. It’s a traditional Romanian holiday dish. Everyone easts it at Christmas and Easter. Normally, it’s a meat and rice stuffed cabbage roll. I use an ancient recipe with spring leaves from the linden tree, seasoned beef, rice, red wine, and tomato paste. This is the first time I’m doing it unassisted. So, yeah, my fingers are crossed! Twice.

If you noticed, I’ve reduced blog soup down from 15 to seven featured blogs per episode. No more need for one or more pots of coffee to get through the soup!
