Each weekend, I post a readable, a watchable, and a listenable of which I'm fond. You can choose what happens next. Earlier volumes can be found here.
Many of you are bloggers and quite good at it. Some of you are thinking about your first launch into the blogosphere. Either way, it's helpful to have a tour guide for the trip, which is why I recommend ProBlogger. Darren Rowse and his team are full of experience and wisdom that will help you feel a little bit better about being blog-overwhelmed. I suggest starting with 31 Days to Building a Better Blog. I'm still working on day 5.
What party tricks can your 5-year-old do? FYI: Tying a shoe is not really that impressive. The urlesque blog shares 10 different kids, ages 3 to 10, showing off their mad rock skills. The video above is 5-year-old Wesley (whose parents may not have thoroughly thought out that haircut) playing and singing Johnny Cash's "Folsom Prison Blues." I want to squoosh his face at the 47 second mark.
I fell in love with musical theater after sitting on the front row of Rent at the Nederlander Theater in New York City 10 years ago. Today, I saw Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat at the Virgina Samford Theatre in my hometown. It reminded me how much I still love great talent singing and dancing their hearts out. And the absence of shirts did not hurt. This song is No Good Deed from Wicked. I love when a person decides to be evil and there's a soundtrack for the moment.
