I found myself at home today with a sick daughter. I have plenty of work I could be doing. But instead of being productive around th house I decided to comment the heck out of all my friends blogs and their online worlds. So this post is chock full of link love to some of the interesting people I cavort with online.
I posted to Twitter, Pownce, FaceBook, and my favorite, Jaiku that I was doing this today. I didn’t get too many responses.
Of course, faster than a speeding bullet, Scott Wilder responded to my to do list. He has more iron’s in the fire of new media than anyone I know. I’ve written about Scott before. We record the What Would Jesus Podcast together. He has been doing more and more with video lately. He is leading a bible study at his church in this video. I most enjoyed the vocabulary leason throughout.
Scott just announced that he and his wife are expecting . They are going to be great parents! Congratulations to Kathie and Scott.
The next to reply to my to do list was Betty Ortiz. If you are on Jaiku and not following ChibbiGirl then you are missing out. She is fun, full of life and just as cute as can be! I owe Betty some Always the bridesmaid, never the bride photos on her Flickr Group. I’ll get those up soon I promise!
The third and last person to get on my priority list was Ed Tuthill, Bishop on Jaiku. I enjoy following Ed for the interesting pieces of news he posts occassionally. Like so many of the people I befriend online, he isbright, witty and fun to follow. His blog is Free Beer and Shots Around the World.
So with no one else requesting my attention then I move on to the friends and aquaintances that have news to share!
Sheryl and Ken of Star Dust Global Ventures are now engaged to be married. They are the most inter-connectd couple to be found and have lots of ideas on the future of communications and connectivity. I’ve been invited to join them for a conference call this week. I’m looking forward to seeing what they are up to next!
My friend Tara has started blogging. I actually know Tara in real life and had the pleasure to attend her wedding and get to know her family. Following her writtings and family through a blog is great because I haven’t seen or visited with her since my family started. But am reminded why she is such a great person to know. “Thanks Tara! Now get your husband blogging!”
I am meeting many and a varied group of people in my exploration of the Internet. These are just a few. I may need to write a follow-up as I had hoped to comment on more people. But I hear my daughter stirring and need to tend to her.
God bless all!
