Image via CrunchBaseLike I said before, I don't maintain a blog roll. It's not because I don't like you, but because I have a few friends...well one, in particular...who creates a new blog once a week. I got tired of updating the blog roll every time. I'm sorry that he ruined it for the rest of you, but there is another alternative.
Google's "Following" is pretty handy. I have enjoyed other sites who use this tool that I may not have otherwise found. Here's how it works.
So, if you are a friend of mine it will serve as a blog roll. If you are a reader I don't personally know, this will help me learn about your blogs and add them to my reader. It will also allow others to see your blog and become a new reader for you.
There's something exciting about solving a mystery or discovering something new. So, I combine that with another passion of mine which is reading maps. Here's what I did - not that you should care.
I stumbled across the following image and thought "Those highways seem familiar. I wonder if I could figure out what city that is in."
Well, it turns out that I could do better than that. Not only did I find that it was located in Concord, NC, I also found the street view of what appears to be the above sign in Google Maps. It looks like the landscape behind the signs has changed since the picture was taken, but according to the map, I don't see anywhere else this sign could be posted accurately.

Could someone make an overlay (like those glare filters) for my monitor that are prescribed to my eyesight? Even if they could, would it work regardless of the distance between you and your monitor?
If such a thing were possible and it in fact worked swimmingly, how much would something like this cost?
*These are things I think about when spending the night in my car in sub freezing temperatures.
I meant to read this a few years ago, but someone on our team misplaced it. If I could name names, I would - but I can't. Anyway, I finally grabbed another copy of Seth Godin's The Big Moo: Stop Trying to Be Perfect and Start Being Remarkable. After reading it I am sorry that I did not seek it out sooner.
Godin was one of 33 well known people who contributed to this title. This book is a follow up to his previous book The Purple Cow. It was like reading a series of blog posts bound in a book. Each section is 2-3 pages, making it easy to pick up an read whenever and wherever. Everything about the book was motivating and gives you a good push in the direction of doing something remarkable. It is worth reading it.
