noimg_4_80_802

Today was technically a “rest day” from our fairly new (we started July 1) and fairly aggressive (for us, anyway) fitness routine. For those interested in the details, Dr. Darling and I have joined a couple of Twitter pals and fellow Team Sopherocious members in doing Jillian Michael’s 30-Day Shred … but not necessarily on Jillian’s …

Tweet Cheat: for when you’re too busy to blog

170393118_80_80

It feels like I have a lot of things I could be blogging about right now, but not enough time to actually do the writing that is required. Which is one of the many reasons why I love Twitter so much. It’s 140 characters … that’s it. And I can ALWAYS find time for 140 characters. …

The 2012 Opening Ceremonies, 1 tweet at a time

Google’s got my number

102696664_80_80

Recently my stats-obsessed Swede noticed a bit of an uptick in the number of hits here at ShazzerSpeak and decided to dig a little deeper into the analytics. Turns out that the most common strings of search words pointing visitors to this blog over the past few days are “Patsy & Edina, London, Olympics” and …

Tech-savvy environmentalists vs. Shell Oil: The gift that keeps on giving

Shell icebergs in hell

Like a LOT of people, I was initially sucked in by the Shell Oil “Arctic Ready” website and its social media campaign, which provided a tool for the general public to create billboards championing oil drilling in the arctic. The link turned up in one of my Twitter feeds fairly early on a weekday morning last week, …
