I Wanna Say Happy Birthday

I’d like to take this time and give a shout out to a very interesting woman. This woman co-authored a NY Times best seller. She is well known in the tech journalism community. She never sleeps. 😉 And she is a very generous woman from my point of view. I’m talking about Gina Smith.

Today is her birthday. I don’t know how old she is, nor do I care, but birthdays are special. It’s another year under your belt and a chance to grab another one. Happy birthday, Gina. I hope this lil’ blurb finds you well on this day.

For those of you that don’t know, Gina is also the Editorial Director of aNewDomain.net. Gina gave lil’ ol’ me a chance to join a team that’s on the way to doing big things in the world of tech journalism. I was lucky enough to have comments on aNewDomain regarding the late Steve Jobs and other postings noticed by her. I appreciate Gina reading my mindless blog posts, Google Plus posts, and later reaching out to me saying “you should write.” She has been very encouraging to me as I am NOT a writer, nor have I ever claimed to be. Gina from day one took a chance on me and is continuing to provide guidance and assistance in anyway she can from a 3 hour time-zone difference. (She’s in California) Whether it’s skype calls, Google Plus messages, or emails, she’s very quick to ask “how can I help you?”

Thank you again, Gina, for everything.

Happy Birthday, Gina. May you have a great one this day way out there on the west coast. 😉

My New Endeavor(s)

Hello everyone.

I haven’t posted to my personal blog in quite a while. I’ve been focused on a lot of different things and aspects of my daily life that’s pulled me away from posting my mindless content.

First off, I want to say “thank you” for continuing to read my mindless content and spreading the word. When I was posting regularly, I was getting a lot of hits and Google would refer my blog to people in their search queries. I appreciate that, yall.

Next, let me tell you what’s going on with my current endeavors. I’m now Senior Contributor for a new tech site called aNewDomain.net. Some of you may have already heard about me writing there. This was an opportunity I was blessed with. It just fell into place. The Editor-in-Chief is the well-known tech writer Gina Smith. She has a track record with ABC, CNET, and is the co-author of best-seller iWoz, the book about the co-founder of Apple computer, Mr. Steve Wozniak. Gina approached me via my Google Plus feed and the things I wrote on blog. She emailed me about doing guest posting because of comments i made on her site. Next thing you know, I got an email saying “you should write for us”.

As you all know, I’M NOT A WRITER, but I can speak about a topic if I know about it. Even speak eloquently if I need to. So anyway, that’s how I got into aNewDomain.net. We’re growing our staff. We have some BIG TIME writers on our team. Check us out here.

Next, I’ve always wanted to be on a podcast or do my own podcast. I now have the opportunity. It’s called Yet Another Tech Show, aka “YATS”. We recorded our first episode this past Saturday and I LOVED IT. It was a lot of fun and the show turned out great. This will be a weekly thing. It’s a open, loose, tech show about things noted in the world of tech as well as highlighting stories we have written previously. This will eventually offer live video feed via Google Plus Hangout. So check it out on this link.

Again, I THANK YOU ALL for the continued support. I will still continue to post on my mindless blog. The daily trivia is still going everyday and it has GROWN. So get in there and play. I promise the monthly champ a SMALL prize and it seems to have taken off.

Hit me up if you all have suggestions for my blog, aNewDomain.net, or YATS.

Thanks for reading, yall. And also, thanks for continuing to SPREAD THE WORD.

Peace,

-RAP, II
