Internet Addiction

I've been on the net for about 8 hours today. Shit, I love this place. OK, so I spend at least 4 hours of every working day on the net, but that's not surfing, that's strictly business stuff. Today has just been pure pleasure.

First I went to whole lot of blog directories to list this site for the launch of Project DOG. On the way, as you can imagine, I came across 100s of other interisting sites. And blog tools that are mind-boggling! Or is that mind-bloggling? Cool name for a blog, huh - Mind Bloggling. You saw it HERE!

When I get time I'm going to add some of the tools on BP Daily.

Then I went and investigated the whole RSS thing. I read "Syndicating Web Sites with RSS Feeds for Dummies" a few months back and this has been on my to-do list for a while. So now I have newsgator installed (the best RSS reader from what I can tell) and it sits right in my ms Outlook as a Folder called "My News". In that Folder I've got 2 sub-folders "BiPolar" and "Google & SEO". In BiPolar I've got 2 BiPolar feeds:

About BiPolar Disorder: Feed URL:
BiPolar Disorder Feed URL:

The Google folder is primarily for my business and already has 4 incoming feeds but I won't bore you with those details. It's just that I gotta keep my eyes on these guys as my business, like it or not, is kind of tied up with them.

This is the way the world is going - Niches within niches within niches. There's just so much stuff out there that you have to narrow down you interests and filter out all the other crap. There's not enough time for crap. MASS CUSTOMISATION is what some dude called it (which has a slightly oxymoronic sound to it, in my view).

Anyway I'm as happy as pie today (unusual for a Saturday) but I'm not looking forward to the neck ache I'm likely to wake up to in the morning. I'll see you again then. (smoking by the way is no longer even on the radar screen).

  1. As long as you're not in the "Yeehaaw" state.
    You're right, blogging is great therapy.
