Wait for the Whisper

By Thom Hunter, published on Dec 9, 2011

Even youths grow tired and weary,

and young men stumble and fall;

but those who hope in the Lord

will renew their strength.

They will soar on wings like eagles;

they will run and not grow weary,

they will walk and not be faint. -- Isaiah 40:30-31

The man slept. Finally. His body had pleaded; his mind had relented; his spirit was depleted and his heart had retreated, so he slept. It was restless, not restful, and the dreams were not sweet, but instead added to the eventual misery of awakening, leaving him already tired upon rising.... (more)

Keeping The Right Perspective

By Randy Mitchell, published on Nov 28, 2011

Thanksgiving, Christmas, and the holidays in general give us all an opportunity each year to reflect on the people, circumstances, and things we have to be thankful for. The energy in the air during December always seems to be (at least for me) very positive and uplifting; a little cleaner and crisp, and filled with that certain charisma and charm making us more lighthearted and hopeful. Perhaps, it’s because I’m a believer, and feel that the days leading to the celebration of Christ’s birth gives me renewed hope that I’ll live again after my moments on earth are finally over. But more than... (more)

By TonyBerkman, published on May 27, 2011

...and readers launched the BC IMHO Circle today a blogger to brand program is designed to further open channels of communication between bloggers and and brands.

According to Angie Alaniz of BlogCatalog, "IMHO is Internet slang for 'In my humble opinion' and is widely recognized on blogs, forums and message boards. Accordingly it works exceptionally well with the blogger demographic and represents what we are asking of our members."

"The IMHO : Circle of Writers Program is open to anyone who writes and is not just to BlogCatalog members" says Alaniz. Yet not everyone... (more)

Terminology-- Blog Catalog 2.01.0

By Libdrone, published on Oct 9, 2010

Terminology. It was an odd thing to be thiking about as I read Tony Berkman's as always gracious and eloquent request to users at Blog Catalog to "focus on the solution rather than the problem" in providing feedback about Blog Catalog 2.01.0 which some users felt was released too soon from a limited beta release, which had been available to community supporters or Plus members as they are now called in the new 2.x BC world for about a month.Blog Catalog's Thursday release of the new version software for their popular blog directory, forum and portal website took some beta testers, as... (more)

3 Facebook Fails

By Glenn T, published on Oct 6, 2010

At present, there are two kinds of people in this country: people who use social media, and the incontinent. The age (or otherwise) excused from reliable bladder control notwithstanding, first MySpace and now Facebook have become as ubiquitously a part of our life as cell phones, DVDs and, unfortunately, Justin Bieber. This development means that the same internet which originally purported to be able to connect us all, is finally doing just that. And once we finally ditched the glitter-gasm spam-fest that MySpace devolved into (and left it for the tweens, permanently "aspiring"... (more)

Are some A-list bloggers polluting the blogosophere?

By TonyBerkman, published on Aug 2, 2010

...bloggers an elegant alternative to these penniless type ads.

The solution didn't arrive easily. Perhaps we are slow. Yet, in an instant, voila. we had a breakthrough experience. I'd say enlightened though we are far from near.

We had figured out a new and an exciting way for blogs to look elegant, for quality bloggers to monetize, for other bloggers to get exposure and a way for readers to find more related blogs. Huh? Perhaps an hallucination. Perhaps not? Time will tell.

Instinctually, the BC team, went into overdrive, especially macnimble &... (more)

The Twitter Versus Blog Wars

By JJFCPA, published on Nov 25, 2009

...become main stream media and a communication platform of thoughts, ideas and personal and corporate perspective. Wikipedia traces blogging back to 1994 when a student at Swarthmore College began what was then viewed as an online diary. Blogging has now grown to a huge base of over 100 million blogs according to Technorati, an online blog directory. What was once an individual’s domain has sprouted into a must have facet of any viable business marketing strategy. Corporate blogs have become increasingly popular for a way to get a company’s message out and engage with consumers of its... (more)

The Young Voter Myth

By Tina Dupuy, published on Feb 21, 2008

Maybe it’s another Clinton running president or maybe its American Gladiators being back on television or maybe it was the late night monologue jokes during the writer’s strike – but I’m suffering from some déjà vu. It’s all sounding vaguely familiar – I’ve seen this – heard it before.

The story is this: Young voters are being galvanized and energized…more than ever…this time.

Time Magazine ran a story of the youth vote on the cover, “Frustrated by feckless Washington, energized by the unscripted, pundit-baffling freedom of a wide-open race, young people are voting in numbers... (more)
