These are posts are awarded a Gribbley in their particular area: What is a Gribbley. It is my award for posts that I have read and have enjoyed or got something out of. The criteria is completely up to me and is known only to me. This month I have awarded Gribbley's to the following categories. Blogging All of us will sometimes wonder what on earth are we doing day after day sharing our thoughts to the world? What really is a blog? What am I here for? Is it a case I blog therefore I am? Darren and the boys have just received a significant boost through a significant sum of venture capital for their efforts in the last year or so in developing the B5 media group.
- Problogger – Here are the 18 top lessons that Darrren has learned. Along the way have been many challenges, milestones and celebrations so today I thought I'd do some reflection and create a list of things I wish someone had sat me down and told me in the early days.
Personal Development The title for this post sounds like and oxymoron. But there is some great hints in this blog. Posts can be a bit intermittent but the archives are great. Go to this one to save you a heap of money especially if you are considering paying out for a Tony Robbins pack or seminar.
- Self help for lazy people – "There is a common thread to all self help books. Instead of having to fork out hard earned cash to hear the same message again and again – why not just follow the tips listed below and it will save you time and money. I have called this post "Self Help and Personal Development for Lazy People". Yes we've heard it all before but it doesn't hurt to be reminded again of some of these essentials in life.
Christian There are some really great Christian blogs out there and some extraordinarily mediocre ones as well. The Porpoise Diving life is obviously related to some other Christian theme because it doesn't make sense to be porpoise diving.
- The Porpoise Diving life – "OK!OK! I am going to provide you with the answer to the most numerous question I have been asked since creating, authoring and launching The Porpoise Diving Life: What do you mean by the phrase; Reality For The Rest of Us?" Seriously too many Christian sites take themselves too seriously. Learning to laugh at our foibles is a sign of health.
Web tech In a week when the sale of YouTube has eclipsed all other news i have decided not to award a Gribbley this month. I am sick of hearing about YouTube and MySpace. Even though they are big and it seems that everyone goes there I would hope that there is much more to come. I am waiting excitedly for the next Web 2.0 app to try out. Just making money doesn't cut it with me.
