After reading more blog posts on the latest Google outrage against its Toolbar Page Rank (TBPR) score and reading everything from “Danny warned us” to “Matt Cutts has confirmed” to “Nobody cares”, I had this image of the game, “Pin the Tail on the Donkey”. Yesterday, I wrote two blog posts addressed to Google, that I didn’t post. One was called “Do You Think My Blog is Too Fat”, in which I visualized standing in front of Google’s mirror. ForRead more…

Dove has come out with another visually compelling campaign directed to women about their obsession with appearance. This one, while breathtaking, made me feel defenseless as the mother of a daughter. Parents KNOW there’s a problem. Where are the solutions in this ad? Where is the support? I’ve spent the past 17 years trying to manage the sheer onslaught of merchandise nonsense choices my daughter has had since her birth. In the new Dove ad, we’re subjected to a constantRead more…

A few nights ago I dreamed I was arguing with a woman named Mary. No matter what I did, I was being judged. I woke up, fell back to sleep, and continued to have a yelling match with her.

Shortly before the earth stopped rotating, Lisa Barone wrote a response to something IRead more…

It finally dawned on me, after yet another useless waste of my time skimming headlines in a social media site, why I don’t like social media and why, if I bother to join, I quickly lose interest. It’s because the content that’s posted isn’t for me. The motivation for posting is to get yourself, your web site, your business, your articles, your blog, your products, your services, your brand, your weird user name and your big important thing noticed, foundRead more…

I’m starting to learn that what web site professionals produce may be closely related to their personal character. For example, if you are the giver type, this is what we see from you online. If you are a taker type, this is obvious as well in the kinds of web sites you associate with. Incentive I live in a small, country town. The last census in 2000 showed a population under 9000. I know it’s more than that now becauseRead more…
