    Who’s To Blame For Herb’s Poetry Habit

    Herb’s Blog, Herbdate 22138 – 709: As you may or may not recall I have at times fancied myself something of a poet. I think some of my stuff is okay while some of it is mind-rotted drivel of the lowest sort. And some in between. I have read books…

    100 hours or 1,000 hours – A Concept That Has Been Bothering Me

    Herb’s Blog, Herbdate 22131 – 702: Many of you may remember that this whole streak of making at least one post per day, even if it is just one sentence, started with a blog post I read by a marketing maven named Seth Godin. He had been blogging for 11…

    Place Your Fingers On The Home Keys Homeboy

    Herb’s blog, Herbdate 22122-693: A re-written piece from Jan 14, 09 Herbdate 17876: He sat staring at the blank screen the way the old-timers had stared at a blank sheet of paper in a typewriter. He couldn’t move. Paralyzed by depression and fear of rejection he minimized the word processing…

  • Experimenting

    Experimenting

    Over the next few days, I am thinking of testing different looks for the blog. I am not looking to modify it a whole lot, but there are a couple of looks I want to try. I will try to keep the interference to a minimum and still continue my…

  • New Streak

    New Streak

    Today marks the beginning of a new streak. I missed yesterday. To be fair to me, there was a lot going on. We had to take Grandma to the Emergency Room last night and even though it turned out to be okay, actually pretty good, that place always costs time,…

  • Broken Streak or Six-Day Streak?

    Broken Streak or Six-Day Streak?

    Aaarrrggghhh! I made it 6 days in a row before breaking my streak. Do I give up or do I say, “My next streak will be longer?” My next streak will be longer!

  • Introducing Fahrenheit 451

  • Again?

    So (I think it was 87% of bloggers start their blog entries with the word “so” although that statistic may be outdated any more), This is day 2 of a streak! If anyone is interested, I have joined another retail workforce. I left the grinning checkmark, which doesn’t treat its…

    Going Streaking

    Herb’s Blog Herbdate 21735-301(?): I hope I don’t have a stinky diaper, but I do want to start a streak and get on a roll. No, not the old 70’s kind of streaking, but I want to start a streak. I read the blog of a guy named Seth Godin…

  • Yakkin’ With A Razor (Or an explanation of my writing style)

    Yakkin’ With A Razor (Or an explanation of my writing style)

    I was over at Seth Godin’s Blog, I read it every day, and ran across a very interesting turn of a phrase.  He is some sort of motivational marketing maven and all-around business guru.  I’ve seen a video of him talking to top IBM officials, presidents, vice-presidents and their upper-echelon…
