Lonely Cats
Photo-A-Day #1336

At home with Oliver and Duncan (pictured here). I decided that I will do both manual focus and manual setting for a while and I love how Duncan looks. Duncan has been very, very needy today. He tried to spend as much time as possible with me. I worked from home today and he was with me all the time.

First thing this morning I took Allison and Eva to the airport. They headed on down to Florida for a week long vacation. I didn’t get to go this time but it is an early Christmas present for Allison to spend some time with her parents and for Eva to spend time with Mimi and Grandpa Dano.

There are some amazing things happening for me online lately.

Nokia Buzz Creation
I was picked to be one of 20 diverse bloggers to test out the new Nokia 6650 on the AT&T network and chronicle my life for the week of December 15 – 21. I would have liked to have had Christmas week but that didn’t work out. But prepping for Christmas is cool too. Check out the Nokia Chronicles website.

The Big Deal thought, is my appointment to the IZEA Insiders
It is official that I am now part of the IZEA Insiders. I’m crew leader for the “I’m Not A Famous Blogger Crew” and I need to start recruiting crew members. So far I have some great bloggers in my corner such as Karen, Tim, Michelle, Pete (He’s also on Nokia Chronicles and featured till the 7th) and Lenny. If you are a reader of The BenSpark and a member of SocialSpark and you want to be part of my crew just send me a message or leave me a comment. The official start date for IZEA Insiders is January 1, 2009. But prior to that I am going to be running a promotional contest for those bloggers who are part of my crew. That contest will happen in the next few weeks so that gives people time to join the “I’m Not A Famous Blogger” Crew.

Site Sponsorship
You may have noticed that this blog is being sponsored but Kmart for a little while. IZEA has been running an amazing promotion with Kmart. They gave 6 elite bloggers $500 to spend at KMart and a $500 gift card to give away. Remember folks, I’m Not A Famous Blogger so no $500 gift card for me. But I have entered the contests and they can be found all over the place. However since I am that nice a guy I’ll give you the list right here.

    Poor O & D!! At least they have you…besides…they need to give Mimi and Dano and MEEEEEEEEE a turn with the Benspark Ladies!! 🙂

    Good deal with all your blogging achievements!! And to think I can say “I knew you when…” Oh wait, does that phrase defeat the whole “I’m not a famous blogger thing?

    I know that they are having an excellent time. Eva is fascinating everyone with how much she now can do and how much she knows. The kid is amazing.

    And I am still a no name blogger, very unfamous.

    Is there a K-mart in the Metrowest ? I am feeling a litle contest guilty. I won the USB watch here,A pair of sneakers from UrbanClimber.com, and a soundtrack and poster for Madagascar 2 from spout.com , all in the last 2 weeks. 500 dollars from K-mart would be sweet though.

    lennys last blog post..Starbuck’s ( Solomon Pond Mall ,Again), Benspark, and where I was this week.

    There is a Kmart off Exit 19 on 495. So if you win one you can still use it. You have been very lucky.
