Oh, Mix It Up For Heaven's Sake!


Yoo hoo class...errr, is there a class left after my long absence????

*Note to self: Stop pretending. The class has graduated. Or they're on summer vacation. Or they've waved the white flag on blogging.*

Well, just in case there is still one lone straggler out there ready to read & learn hot blogging tips & trends, I'm checking in again! Delinquent and tardy as I may be, I've got a 'Rocky' eye-of-the-tiger persistence & toughness. I'll always return!


Here's the brief back story: Do the math. Burnout from doing too much + insatiable curiosity + family drama + lots of travel + serious ongoing health issues = chugging along on one cylinder.


Hey, I'm not saying I'm out of the woods yet. But r & r, doctors of all kinds, prayers, lots and lots of drugs & prayers have certainly helped. My aura is shining & beautiful once again. 


Whilst I've been away & piddling around, I've noticed a trend: curation.


What is curation or curating you ask? Basically, it's culling & selecting.

Here is an excellent New York Times article on this subject.


Curating is what's happening now in Facebook, Tumblr, and Pinterest. Bloggers have morphed into curators. 


And in the process, links to the original creators sadly often get lost. And very few seem to care. The web has imploded. We're becoming one big humongous, gooey, no-degree-of-separation, joyfully jacuzzing blob.


May the blob be with you! Curation is King.


Hey, just for the record: I'm a curator too. Check out my humor Tumblr (Booyah) and my spiritual Tumblr (Circuitry)


And then there's my Stumbleupon.


And maybe, just maybe I'll jump into the joyful jacuzzi called Pinterest.


That is, if my docs don't handcuff me. 


Wishing you a naughty but nice summer!
