Top 11 Posts of 2011

Well, we’re almost to 2012 and recently I posted my top 11 photos of ’11, so I thought I would dig around in my stats and share with you the items that a plurality of you decided to visit over the year. They’re ranked by number of views. 11: (Dis)Engaging Google+ – I’ve written that…

What My Blog Says About Me.

Lets be honest. I don’t put a whole lot of thought into my blog. I don’t have an editorial strategy of what I’m going to post. I do, however, put a lot of “me” into this space. The sub-theme, “Heaping Scoops Of My Brain,” isn’t just clever witticism, This space is really all about what…

To Be (Re)Purposed To Death…

If you follow along, you’ll recall that I posted this: To Be Purposed To Death in which I describe my unhappiness at being affronted by all these networking events which turn into “cause”ups. I took a great deal of flak from that. I was told: “It’s for a good cause, why don’t you just support…

Dan Savage: You Do Not Speak For Me

Hello, My name is Nick and I’m fired up. Please hold while I get my Soapbox…. Thank you. A friend posted the following to his wall on Facebook as something he “Liked” as I continued to read, my blood started boiling, I started getting worked up and I was ready to spit fire, I’ve given…

Commentary: “Burn the Koran Day” – WTF?

Normally I go out of my way to stay away from Political or otherwise incendiary commentary on my blog. Mostly because I know there are people who do it for a living and I also know there are people who don’t want to read about it. This time, I just can’t be silent about it….
