Will someone make the world stop spinning so fast, please?
In the meantime, I missed posting yesterday and couldn't let that happen again today, so I got up a tad early. (I know 7:00 isn't really early - for some people, but it's early for me!) Couldn't let a Tuesday get by without a qualified Fit by Five. And, I'm totally psyched about today's news, so much so, I'm calling it On Being Remarkable... see if you agree.
1. Carnival of the Capitalists...was live yesterday at About.com. Great job! I'm still wading through the great posts. Every week I find something new and exciting at the CoTC. If you're not participating, I ask you: why not??? Check out future dates here.
2. Andy Wibbels is at it again! Or, should I say, STILL? This guy is dynamite. He's everywhere I go on the net giving away free advice on blogging. You've bought his book, Blog Wild, right? If not, you're at least recommending it to friends, right? Regardless, his post at this week's Carnival is a tutorial on del.icio.us - a MUST-READ. I'm not using del.icio.us yet, nor Technorati...but I should be. And so should you. Andy is one REMARKABLE guy.
3. While checking out the links at this week's Carnival, I came across this great new blog, where I learned some fascinating stuff. The Carnival post, 10 Stupid Mistakes was enlightening. This is a blog I'm going to have to check out more often.
4. For the folks in the know, yes, I know that Saturday was Earth Day. I was busy being earthy. Hope everyone celebrated this neglected 'holiday'. Hope everyone recognizes the neccesity of having Earth Day. Hope everyone plants a tree, or rakes a lawn, or just pays attention to litter - Mother Earth thanks you, I thank you, and all creatures great and small thank you. Just to help you along, here's a great place to do good Earth-y things. [wish they had a blog!]
5. I leave you with this thought, "Sooner or later we all discover that the important moments in life are not the advertised ones, not the birthdays, the graduations, the weddings, not the great goals achieved. The real milestones are less prepossessing. They come to the door of memory. "
