Ok, Google Plus is wonderful and all - but the little half-second pause when you're required to choose which circle a new friend is categorized into is a total pet peeve!  GAAAH!

I decided to completely do away with the concept of a "design queue" or waiting list for several reasons, and shared them in this post. 

Some other web and blog designers don't agree.

What do you think?

Whether you blog every day, once per week, or even less - consistency is key.  Here's what you need to know for each post you create!

Welp.  Now that we have some highly ambitious and incredibly savvy social bloggers joining in on the fun....let's ask a question, shall we?

Where has blogging gone in the past year? Two years?  To be honest, I've noticed a dramatic decline in blog post, comments, and interaction...aside from blogging giants.  It used to be extremely versatile and universal.  Now it's turning into blog monopoly where the big bloggers get all the interaction, and "little" bloggers get almost none!

So I ask you...do you agree?  Or am I totally off-base?  (Hey, honesty is far more valuable than flattery.  ALWAYS.)

I see more interaction on Facebook pages than on blogs these days. I think there's more of an ease from jumping from page to page on that system versus blogging which is so individual. Also, since there are so many bloggers out there it may be hard to keep up with all the many blogs that would interest you.

Good question April.

I am still a blog reader, although I am a bit behind on my blog. My goal is to attempt to get a post in a week and hopefully be posting bimonthly at the minimum.
