Work Email and Private Email

I don’t talk much about email yet it’s something I deal with everyday. It’s something I know very well and yet it’s the most abused, most wrongly used and most boring way to communicated in the world…next to sending a fax. For all of you reading this Email as we know it is dead and most likely you are using it wrong anyway.

We are all users of email. Both at work and at home. Still not saying it’s right to use it but you are using it and stop lying to yourself…you are doing something that is not acceptable on it.

Online Dating – Case Closed

Back a while ago I posted about the really bad behavior on dating sites. I can honestly tell you those two posts got a fair amount of attention and some interesting mail. Some people thought it was funny, and there were a few who thought I was directing the posts at them. In reality they were a compilation of some hit and miss posts of my own and the absolute train wreck that is online dating.

In case you missed them here is 101 & 102

Belly Fat Cure – It will kill you!

The Belly Fat Cure by Jorge Cruise is what we are going to talk about. Jorge has build himself a multi-million dollar book deal telling people that he can cure your belly fat. This sounds great, but in reality it’s a load of poo! The books are well done and about $20 each. There are just a few problems. While I think Jorge means well (really I don’t) I don’t think he is telling the truth about everything, and I don’t think he is really in a position to be handing out eating advise since half of what he says does not make logical sense. I also wonder how much of this diet he actually does? He post pictures of meals he is eating and most of them are whole foods, not the processed crap he is encouraging you to eat.

Personal Marketing 102 (Online Dating)

So you have read Personal Marketing 101 and now you are going to read 102. Super! We are going to dig deeper into the issues wrapped around online dating and why it is an absolute mess that clearly no one on these sites is aware of. I was thinking of starting a business to help people build a profile but I think those already exist. Plus you should never pay for advice from someone who clearly is this cynical. Sadly for comical purposes I purposefully have broken some of the rules. I just wanted to fit in.

The topics for today will include: Religion, Duck Face, Old Photos, Smokers and Party Girls

Personal Marketing 101 (Online Dating)

I never thought I would have the knowledge to write anything like this, but here I am writing about one of the most annoying parts about being single. Let me be clear I could care less about the dating part, it’s easy to find people to go out with without using a dating site, but frankly dating sites are just one “hot mess” after another and I can’t stop reading them. It is better than the tabloids or the gossip section in a paper. I don’t know how to explain the idiots that post the most interesting stuff on dating sites, but you have to look for it. Facebook has nothing on dating sites.

Dating sites are full of crazy people who have no idea what makes a good online profile. Some profiles are short and some ramble on for days with no freaking end in sight. Dating is now a full blow “Marketing Effort” and most people are failing at it.  What I am going to try to do is help these poor lost souls with what not to do and if I can maybe post what to do.

Here are some of my observations.

Riding Alone

I do enjoy riding my bike, but to be honest I enjoy it more when I ride with other people. Riding alone stinks. I have ridden short runs the past two days and both were alone, just me, the bike, and the open (not really) road. I do enjoy it but I always feel like I am going way to slow.

Sleep. Have you thought about it?

So recently I was thinking about sleep. I was thinking about how doctors and science still don’t know why we sleep other than we are tired, and that I can see by Facebook that some people do not sleep. I get really cranky when I don’t sleep so I can only imagine how much it must suck for someone who can’t sleep every night.

There was a point last week with the time change when 8 o’clock rolled around and I was beat and ready for bed. So I went to bed and got about 10 hours of sleep that night. I felt great the next day. So much so I started thinking.

You can’t be Vegan all the time….

So a journey stared about 60 days ago. I was in pain on my left side of my abdomen. I went to see the doctor and  figured he would throw some antibiotics at it. That did not help at all. So I went back and saw him again. We took some X-rays and didn’t see much, other than some “stuff” on the left side that needed to be cleaned out. So I did that with a few items and a Salt Water Flush one morning. I think I got most of it out and was all clean but still hurting. I assumed at this point it had to be what I was putting in my mouth.

Lynda.com – Best $25 I ever spent

Learning is a life long thing….journey….no….learning is life. You learn something every day!

So the other day I was looking to learn more about developing iPhone applications and take a bite out of that $4 Billion dollar a year industry and found Lynda.com.

For $25 a month you can listen to everything on the site. So I figured I could spend $50 on a book I will struggle with or $25 for a video series to let me SEE what is going on and then do it. There are other FREE tools all over the web to help you learn you just have to be willing to look for them.

I found this PDF to help with Xcode. LINK

 

I also found this link with lots of other stuff about Xcode and writing apps for the iPhone.

With all this said you have an endless set of online resources to help you learn and think better!
