Friday Fun: A Little Blog Humor


Blogger_cartoon Today's Friday Fun is a giggle at bloggers. Click to enlarge the cartoon.

Sidebar: Yes, new divo and diva readers Diva Marketing is indeed a blog that focuses on marketing; however, Friday is a get ready for the weekend day. These posts are a space to create a virtual Happy Hour. Sometimes sophisticated-silly..sometimes..plain-silly. A little playfulness is a great stress reducer!

Divine Diva Millie Garfield's son, Steve Garfield, the divo of vlogs, is teaching a class on vlogging. From his student's excitement about the subject Steve must be one heck of a great teacher!

Here's an oldie but goodie that Divo Scott Burkett - pothole on the infobahn told at his excellent presentation on blogs to Kettering Executive Network this morning. [More on that later!]. I searched the web and finally found it at Picasso Dreams.

Don't forget the 28 that post their own commentary on their own blogs, with proper links of course, and then wait for the original author to post a "thanks for the mention" on their blogs after checking their Techorati account...

I'm virtually happier already!

It's amazing that I've been seeing the word "blog" on a few TV shows lately. Of course, when I need an example... one isn't coming to mind. Even though blogging is more known, it's still exciting when you hear it mentioned in comics or a program. It shows that blogging has become a regular part of our lives like anything else.

Of course it only took 1 blogger to change the light bulb, the others are incidental.
