I AM SICK OF IT!!!!!

Standard

My heart and my prayers go out to the victims of that very sick young man in Arizona who shot the congress woman and the others.  If you haven’t noticed our world is really becoming a sick place, and I feel the media plays a very big role in this sickness.  I am sick of politics, and the way the media pushes it to one side or the other. It has to be the fault of the other party’s instead of one sick individual.  The the talk show people chime in, and add fuel to the fire.  What happened to the compassion of this world?  Does everything boil down to what Rush, Sarah or Glenn and others say.

I feel at times the media pushes these people over the edge because they are talking with so much passion.  A sick individual can interpret those words to be gospel, and feel he has to help that very passionate person do what is right.  I know everyone in this country has the right to say anything they want to say without fear and that in its self is a wonderful thing.   Politics being as nasty as it is, should a line be drawn on how things are presented to the public?

How do we change nasty politics  with all the back biting and twisting of words? How do we get the media to change the way they present things.  We as “the people” should be able to make changes.   I don’t know squat and I very freely admit it, but what I do know is something is very wrong.  That’s my two cents for today.

Ways To Find Ideas for Your Blog

Standard

This is actually a review of a great little book by Steven Aitchison called “100 Ways To Find Ideas For Your Blog Posts.”  In the introduction of the book Steven writes, “There are times when blogging can be tough and it feels like we have just run out of ideas for our blog posts or as a freelance we dometimes think there’s nothing else to write about.  Where does the muse go when we are feeling like this, and how can we get it back?

He goes into great detail of his 100 ways to find ideas.  It is interesting to read and the ideas are fantastic.  I found the book on Amazon and I am glad I did.  As a newbie to blogging, I am trying to learn all I can and this book was very helpful.  A few of the ways he has discussed within the book for blog ideas are:

1.Talk to children

2. Visit TED.com

3.  Do something you normally would not do.

4. Write a controversial post

5.  Open up your encyclopedia

I have found that his ideas make a lot of sense and are easy to do.  If you would like to know  more of his ideas just let me know and have a look at the book on Amazon.com  I happen to think this little book is great to have on hand as a resource guide.  That’s my two cents for the day.
