Today I got up super early and drove from Kansas City, MO to Albany, MO. I demoed for a couple of hours and headed back to Kansas City. The drive there was in near pitch darkness along a highway and the ride back was on back roads that were quickly being covered with a layer of snow. My flight was supposed to be at 7:10pm from Kansas City to Chicago and then I wasn’t going to be able to get to Cincinnati until 11:30pm. Before I left the demo location I checked the airport for departures and saw that there was a flight at 2:!5 and one at 5:45pm. I didn’t figure I would make the 2:15 one but I did and I might even make a connection in Chicago and get to Cincinnati by 6:55pm. Man that would be awesome!
Yeah, I got the 2:15 flight, but not the flight to get me in at 6:55pm. Looks Like if the flight actually goes out I will land around 11:30pm. Great.
I am a bit beat after getting back on the road and flying so much and having a cold. Still kicking myself about the camera thing but making do with the camera phone. Man I cannot wait to get rid of that thing. I have decided that I am not going to get the super duper mega expensive package with Mobile web and VCast and VZ Navigator. It just isn’t worth the extra expense to get a neutered version of the internet. I use the internet to make some additional money, as much as I like being able to take a photo each day and post it I also like the extra income that I make. If I was able to be connected all the time I would be very happy and since it was a business expense I could write it off. But only being able to get to specific sites is not going to do it for me.
I swear that I have given myself ADHD because of all the blogging that I do. I rarely make it through a write up of a post without opening at least 25 additional tabs, dropping 50 entrecards, posting to twitter, utterz, flickr and zooomr. My Firefox always opens with at least 10 tabs that I check right away. I will work on something then skip over to e-mail, then to my feed reader, respond to blog comments on each blog and now drop cards like a fiend on Entrecard sites. I am really enjoying this and even hit top level of my blog’s category. I would really like to have a card for each site but I need an e-mail for each blog and there is no way I am going to slog through 7 e-mail addresses. Yeah I have 7 blogs now.
This one is my main blog and I blog here every single day. My second most active blog is BenSpark 2: Electric Boogaloo because it is my entertainment blog and there is always something to write about. Then there is the new blog Read To Me, Dad, I need to get more active over there and I just started another little pay it forward contest there so check it out and you could win a fun song for your kids. The Wired Kayaker is going to be more active too because I have gotten a new camera (ouch I was just starting to get over not being able to use that camera this week, oh well). Flatwater Tech is a bit on hiatus for a while but I will get back on track there. Then there is Google is Not God, I should probably just sell that domain as I really have little to say there. And I took my mobile blog, The BenSpark’s Mobile Blog through Blogger to post all my utterz as well as info on Entrecard. I’m trying to put together a comprehensive list of 300 entrecard sites so I can quickly and easily drop my 300 daily cards. Right now it takes quite a while but I am really getting some great traffic using it and want to advertise on many of the high credit blogs (heck my blog is a high credit one, go figure). So I keep busy online.
Back to the phone, so we are getting the EnV from LG and getting the unlimited Text, Pix, and Flix as well as IM through the phone. I am excited at being able to use the IM functions as well as unlimited Text, Pix and Flix. It should be fun especially because I am using Utterz so much. I am ever excited because those guys are based in MA. And when I get the new phone I have set up a meeting to go visit their operation. I totally missed their first official meet up and wish I knew sooner or I would have made arrangements to go. Oh well, Iâ€™ll make it to the next one. Anyway when I go visit I’m going to bring the videocamera and do some interviews with as many people as I can. But all that will happen after I get the new phone.
