The Cool Kids Use Their Thumbs

Tweet If I felt old before, I feel old now. A friend of mind pointed this out to me. Thumbs are the new index fingers. If you’re over 30, you’ll probably press a doorbell with your index finger, while anyone under 30 may well use their thumb. That’s because they’ve spent so much time flexing […]

Did Twitter Make You Quit Blogging?

Tweet There is a lot of talk about Twitter over at NTZ these days. Mainly because it is in the news. And here is the question?  Has Twitter impaired your blogging? Are you using Twitter as an RSS feed? Mark Evans asks and pontificates quite eloquently. My sense is Twitter is emerging as a vibrant […]

A PDF For The Low, Low Price Of $19.99

Tweet I couldn’t agree with the Recovering Journalist more. A few months ago, after U.S. News & World Report announced that it was going to end its weekly (er, bi-weekly) print edition and move to a Web-first publishing model, accompanied by monthly print special editions, I had coffee with a couple of the magazine’s top […]

Where’d The Cool Badge Come From?

Tweet We had a reader ask a question about where to find the nice “Follow Me On Twitter” button we’re using in the sidebar… I got it from a post I found which features 181 cool Twitter logos.  Go there and find something nice!  I’m graphics-disabled, so I love finding these type resources!
