The Best of Me Symphony Carnival is Up at The Owner's Manual

June 19, 2006 | By | No Comments

owners_manual_logo.jpg


The Owner’s Manual Emo Philips is the host of this well crafted carnival. A must visit.

Your Business Blogger has an entry. Here’s Emo’s comment:

When I was a kid, my goodness, corporate America was a bunch of stolid white guys in gray suits trying to be serious, and now it’s stolid white guys in gray suits trying to be funny.

Not quite as bad as TBogg’s comments:

Oh wait. It’s business humor which is usually only appreciated by administrative assistants who mentally convert all punchlines into “Jesus. What an *ssh*le” while grinning maniacally and saying, “Good one, boss.”

And Seth Godin says this is good

…now that’s funny. I guess.

But do visit The Owner’s Manual.

And continue reading his take on the entries. For another example see his comment on Adam’s Blog:

I think of my body as a temple. Or at least a relatively well-managed Presbyterian youth center.

100K Is The New Six Figures

John Stansbury at

MacStansbury.orgNot so long ago, hitting Six Figures was everyman’s dream. A goal attained. Respect.

Today it’s 100,000

Hits.

The number of visits or “hits” to a web log is the new measure of success, not money.

Money is easy to make.

Wealth is easy to fake.

But building a loyal readership is difficult. Web site visits cannot be faked and can be verified by any one.

MacStansbury will surpass the coveted 100K page views some time tonite. Check out his site meter to learn if you were the one.

Then let’s find this guy a wife.

On Being Stubborn

October 28, 2005 | By | No Comments

According to his critics, Bush is stubborn. So stubborn that he will never admit to a mistake and change course.

But is he?

The withdrawal of the Miers’ nomination proves his critics at least half wrong. And there is a nearly endless trail of instances where they haven’t admitted their own far more egregious obdurance — such as their opposition to Reagan’s defeat of the Russians without firing a shot. Likewise the liberals will never admit that Bush’s persistence in pursuing the War on Terror in Iraq is not a matter of obstinancy, but one of courage, determination, principle, and, not least of all, a keen understanding of what is at stake if we cut and run.

Stubborn, with those stakes, ain’t so bad.

Call it resolute. It’s a quality he needs for the days ahead.

The President has been attempting to avoid a head-on confrontation with Senate Democrats over the Supreme Court. With good reason. But if my mail today over the poll on the next nominee is any indication, the President’s supporters want to see a little stubborn.

There’s a time for strategery. And a time for diggin’ in.

Now is the time for stubborn.

Daniel Drezner

The University of Chicago has denied good-guy blogger, Daniel Drezner, tenure. Jack has a post on how Drezner could have handled his research differently to achieve aclaim in the academy. . .

(Warning: prurient pictures. . .in his defense, they do make a point. It’s one of those, you have to see it to believe it things.)

Who’s the King?

Lots of shenanigans ongoing at the Cotillion — Beth is hosting a runoff vote for King of the Cotillion!

Thunder 6

I have been staying out of this, because we are serious around here, . . .but I do feel compelled to note that one of the nominees has been featured previously in these pages as an “American Knight.”

So promotion to King seems only natural.

Not that I’d want to influence your vote.

# # #

Cotillion Carnival up today, too, over at TFS Magnum by Zendo Deb.

UPDATE: You know, you gotta love a guy who has “Plan of Salvation” at the top of his blog. Plus, for you single girls, he’s cute. And a military guy who used to play in a band. (Hey, Em! Heads up!)

You’ve only got a few more days to vote!

Headed to LA: GodBlogCon 2005!

October 13, 2005 | By | No Comments

godblogcon.jpg

I’m packing my bags and headed to LA in the morning (with the Dreamer!) for the GodBlogCon 2005 . . .

The brainchild of Hugh Hewitt, the conference is designed as an opportunity for Christian bloggers to get together and talk about, well, blogging.

I’m sorry I can’t be there tonight for the opening festivities — dinner and a special showing of the movie Elizabethtown — but I’m looking forward to meeting everyone tomorrow. The schedule includes talks by David Wayne (my pastor!) of Jollyblogger, Joe Carter of Evangelical Outpost, and LaShawn Barber.

Dinner Friday night includes a panel discussion with Hugh Hewitt. If you are in the LA area, or can get there, come on by and join the fun.

Of course, if you can’t come, stop on by here for on-the-scene reports. . .
