A person’s age and how it affects their attitudes and decisions fascinates me. I’ve written about it many times. We all have two ages. We have an online age, and then of course there is our physical age. It doesn’t matter to me if someone is 18 or 80, if that person is interesting, I’ll talk to him or her online. However, we all leave clues that hint to our actual age. You can read more about that in How Your Blog Posts and Social Media Posts Give Away Your Age.
By now, we all know that sitting too much during our lives can affect our health in a negative way. It’s been drilled into our heads over and over. If you are a workaholic or a committed blogger, it becomes a huge challenge to avoid sitting too much. After all, you need your computer to finish your projects and blog posts. Typing on your computer usually requires sitting in a chair for multiple hours at a time, and therein lies the problem.
I’ve been getting into Star Wars starship papercraft lately. Since the first of the year, I’ve folded 5 paper starships. I built each one with only one piece of paper and a few pieces of tape. My latest creation was a Millennium Falcon. You can see it in this tweet. Papercraft master Bernard Szukiel takes his Star Wars paper folding a bit more seriously than me. His version of a papercraft Millennium Falcon, which you can see below, is nothing short of mind-blowing.
I don’t like Facebook. Everyone who knows me well knows that. For social media marketers though, Facebook is a necessary evil. My Klout score is 71, but it instantly jumps 6 points higher every time I log into Facebook and post something (which I haven’t done since January). I have some friends who don’t share my opinion though. I know people who are as addicted to Facebook as I am to Twitter. If you’d like to know how to waste less time on Facebook, this post is for you.
Whenever I visit a museum, I am always mesmerized by the displays. Whether it’s a huge dinosaur reconstructed with real bones or artifacts from the caveman days, it’s fascinating. One thing that doesn’t usually cross my mind is how scientists decide to study the information presented to us. It’s a complex process.
Think about bugs for example. It’s very difficult to examine, catalog, study and display different species of bugs since their little bodies and wings are so fragile. The Natural History Museum in London solved this problem though, and they did it with a few ingenious LEGO builds.
