It’s been about 7 months since I’ve been here and as much as things have changed they’ve also remained the same. My son will be one year old in less than two months. I’ve been transitioning more and more out of my painting company and focusing on the online world of content … [Read more...]
A Good Day to Start Again
So here I am…again. This blog has been neglected more than a red headed step child but I do have my reasons. Since my last post on August 31, 2012 I have been busy with my two businesses, my wife and I had our son in October of 2012, and I have been busy writing for the two … [Read more...]

Why Do You Use Social Networking Sites?
I don’t get this question as often as I use to. I started with Twitter and Facebook back in February of 2009 I believe, and that question came up constantly…people didn’t understand why I would sit in front of this illuminated box and talk to people. To put it simply, I use … [Read more...]
Why Blogging Is NOT Dead
