This blog is all about the things I do each day. It is something I make to record the moments that I am having and the things that I am thankful for. I write about my job, my family, my friends, my passions, my hobbies, etc. I usually write about one thing or another every single day or every other day.
This blog is a great idea in theory. It is a great idea because it allows me to write about whatever I want and still have something to say. In practice though, it is usually pretty boring because I often just write about the things that are going on in my life (without thinking about the things that are going on in my life).
I was a newspaper reporter for over three years and I write about about three things every single day. So like all the other reporters I mentioned, this blog is just my way of keeping track of what I am doing. It’s not that I am not interested in my job as a reporter, but I don’t go out and get off the phone for days.
So here I am, a new reporter for a small newspaper based out of North Carolina. I am a pretty laid-back person, so this blog is just an outlet for me to vent and relax. I will likely also occasionally add a photo or two to make things more interesting. There is actually quite a few things going on in my life that need my attention for my work to be done, so I thought it would be helpful to share my day with the world.
We live in a world where we are constantly being bombarded with news from a wide range of sources. From the Internet, to TV, we are getting our news from way more sources than ever before. Which leads me to another question: Should you try to avoid getting news from the Internet? I personally have found a great deal of value in reading other blogs that focus on topics that are more relevant to my own.
Yes and no. You read news on the Internet because you want to learn more. But I’ve also found a lot of value in following along with other blogs that write about topics that are of interest to me. Like this one that focuses on technology.
In this case, the blog I am most closely following is known as the “workday blog.” This one writes a weekly blog (there are currently over 20 posts) that focuses on topics that are of interest to people working in technology. For example, a recent post focused on the recent trend towards virtual and augmented reality.
the workday blog is a blog that focuses on technology, which is a topic I love. It also happens to be one of the blogs that is most followed by people with similar interests. And that’s a good thing.
There seems to be a high rate of readership and links to the blog on sites such as Technorati and StumbleUpon. It is one of my favorite blogs to follow because there is something to it, and I love the fact that it seems to be a mix of tech and lifestyle. It seems to me that it is a blog that is more about the tech on the inside and lifestyle on the outside rather than just about tech, but I am not in a position to judge that.
The blog is a good place to find tech reviews, and you can always find links to useful information about the technology itself. If you are looking for advice on how to stay productive, I would recommend reading The Workday Blog.
