Bloggers Take Heed, Tablet World Is Coming

Posted by on December 23, 2009

As a blogger, and a very opinionated one at that, I’ve been pretty bullish on the future of blogging. However, a series of events in the last few months have gotten me on edge about the future of blogging as we know it. I think changes will take place in 2010 which has the potential to give a second wind to traditional publishers and could threaten some blogs.

The thing which really got me thinking was the following video which was released by Sports Illustrated. Please watch it all: (more…)

I Come From The Land Of The Ice And Snow

Posted by on December 22, 2009

Winter sucks.

All the crap you hear about a white christmas and freshly fallen snow is totally bunk. The temperature here has been in the single digits fahrenheit (-13C), the sun sets a little after 4pm, and there is over a foot of snow. It has been below freezing now for over two weeks and it probably wont get over freezing again for another three months. All the cars create a black slush that stains anything it touches, so if you walk you have to make sure to avoid stepping or touching the slush.

..and did I also mention that it gets dark really, really early?

I was born in the wrong part of the world. I can’t stand the winter.


End of Year Subscription Drive (Sorry, No tote bags)

Posted by on December 17, 2009

It is the end of the year and I’d like to do a bit of blog housekeeping before everyone takes off for the holidays and before I hit the road again after the first of the year. (Hawaii, Fiji, Thailand are my first stops of 2010)

I try to make it a priority to get people get updates sent to them automatically. There are several ways you can follow what I’m doing and where I’m traveling. In 2010 I’ll be offering special content for people who are subscribers and fans (contests, travel deals and updates)

There are four ways you can follow along. Please feel free to take advantage of all four :)

1) Facebook

If you have a Facebook account, just click on the “Become a fan” button below. That’s all you have to do. When I post something new to my site it will appear in your Facebook stream. I also often have other random updates that only people on Facebook will see.
