  7. 7. I express my curiosity about anything and everything through my random thoughts. At times these thoughts are kept to myself and others times shared with others. Below are a few I choose to share. Why do people look up when they think? Are they seeking heavenly intervention? How long does it take candy to biodegrade if kept in a plastic pig? Any person who needs to bribe a kid with junk food to be good while shopping, has a really smart kid. How many slices of homemade rum cake can one eat before he gets tipsy? If you only live life once, how do you know you lived it to the fullest? Don’t you hate it when AFTER you eat you’re HUNGRIER than you were BEFORE you ate? Chewing gum while both nostrils are congested is hard and it makes you chew like a cow. You know you’re in a small town when the post office closes for the day at Noon and it’s a Wednesday. Nothing intimidates me more than clothes shopping. It’s nice to be in the presence of people you love. There’s no need to fill the silence with words; they already know & feel the same. Feel like Gizmo right now. “Bright Light! Bright Light!” :-/

Bloggers are tremendously sophisticated in leveraging the available tools to 4 4 make their blogs more robust. 3 4 4 Target 2 4 3 4 3 Bloggers – One of the most influential reasons we 4 chose this target is the ripple effect.

Bloggers with smaller “influence ripples” tend to be higher in volume. 1 1000+ links Multiple “influence Ripples” are happening right now, all across the Social Network. They overlap, interact, and span across time and digital space. If the ripple is big enough, eventually it spills over into areas outside the Network.
