A big thanks to all of the folks who attended my Edge Studio Business and Money 201 webinar, “Cost/Benefit Analysis”. Any time I can get paid to talk about spreadsheets is a dream come true, indeed.
The second Daddy School book, “Father Christmas” is now on sale!
I started recording “Freemasons for Dummies” at Audible Studios in Newark last week. It was a pleasure to see so many familiar faces!
I like bookmarks. No, not the flimsy paper things you use to keep your place in a book. I mean the kind on the Interwebs. I have well over 200 bookmarks: from my banking websites to my hobby websites and everything in between. Occasionally I go through them and clean them up.
One of the folders that I store bookmarks in is for social media sites that I don’t use very often. I went through it and hoo boy was there a ton of social media sites I haven’t looked at in years. You know what I did? Among others, I deleted my profiles for Plaxo, Uniiverse, Game Voices, and (are you ready?) MySpace!
Yeah, when was the last time you went to THAT site? I was on MySpace every day before Facebook came along.
In a fit of “cleaning house”, I went to my Facebook profile and un-Liked over 100 pages. Crazy, right? And it was all kinds of stuff, too. Restaurants, bands, movies that never got made, even shared memories of former friends and ex-girlfriends.
TIP OF THE WEEK: Deleting those profiles and un-Liking all those pages was quite cathartic. I felt lighter, cleaner, less burdened in some way. Sometimes I need to do silly things like that once in a while as a kind of mental Spring cleaning (Yes, I know it’s summer but don’t be so dang literal). I acknowledge it’s a form of Administrivia but in small doses I think it’s good for you.
