This morning Copy Blogger shared an infographic that made my head spin. This timeline of social networking starts in 1971 with the first email, goes on to 1980 when Usenet created an online bulletin board, and takes us to the first personal blog in 1994, to Twitter in 2006, and on through today, when Pinterest [...]
This morning my husband asked me to go online and order a pump part. That should be easy, right? It’s a name brand pump and a part which routinely needs to be replaced. So I typed “Goulds pumps parts” into a Google search. Thinking it might be best to go direct to the manufacturer, I [...]
Yesterday I took time to try to opt out of a dozen or so mailing lists. Some of them were duplicates for my 2 email addresses. Some of them are there because someone purchaed or “scraped” my address from the web. Some are things I asked for but no longer want or need. Whatever the [...]
