Trigger-Happy Mailing Reveals Blogger’s True Clumsy Nature!

Folks, I deeply apologize for the mass email that was sent today with gibberish in place of the normally tongue-in-cheek-yet-informative IP news and rhetoric to which you are accustomed.

I use a great service called MailChimp to automatically distribute my blog to y’all via email weekly.  I had paused the email, which usually sends on Tuesday at 11am EST, in order to fix some color in the template.  Little did I know that, when I caused the mail to resume, I had disconnected the RSS feed required to aggregate my blog’s content.  So MailChimp’s system filled in the blank email with their automatic sample data.

So I will reward you all for your patience with one of my favorite not-so-true stories:

I saw a sign above a restaurant that read ‘Shrimp!  All you can eat for a dollar!’.  I went in and sat down and the waiter brought a plate with one shrimp on it.  I said, “Waiter.  I thought it was all-you-can-eat for a dollar.”  He responded, “That is all you can eat for a dollar.”

Now, I’m going to finish my coffee.

The WordPress Episode

Blogging is becoming one of the most popular tools on the Internet for communication, web design and even mainstream media and government.  WordPress is the most popular blogging tool.  This week we brought back our friend Tony Cecala PhD who is the leader of one of the largest blogging communities in the world, the DFW WordPress Meetup.  In this episode we cover blogging, media and everything else under the sun.  Sam covers Google Goggles in Sam’s Social Media Corner.  She introduces us to a tool that is so hightech, I can’t believe it’s free… or legal.
