The Carnival of Entrepreneurs is being hosted by Leah Maclean over at Working Solo this week. There are some very interesting looking entries in the carnival this week – a couple of which I immediately earmarked to read as soon as I get a chance… things being a "little" chaotic around here at the moment it may take a while to get to all that interests me
These carnivals are a great way to find new writers and blogs and I love exploring the links… of course this can lead to many lost hours in front of the computer, with way too many tabs open in Firefox and new feeds in my reader.
An example (multiply this by the number of posts in the carnival and you start to get the picture!):
In this carnival, Leah says she particularly liked tips #1, #2 and #3 from 18 Stupid Mistakes Bloggers Make in their First Year by Christine Kane. Couldn’t resist – could I? I just had to see what those three tips were, and then read the entire post (which is great – really inspirational! Thanks Christine!) In that post, Christine points us to a lot of other blog posts, including 10 Reasons to Write and Publish Everyday by Liz Strauss. Now, Liz‘s Successful Blog I have been reading a fair bit lately, since I discovered her a month or two ago (yeah, yeah, I know, I was a biiiit slow). But the post that Christine linked to was from December, and I had never seen it.
[Liz - I particularly like reasons #1 & #7, and soooo agree with #9 ;-]
Can you see how I get lost in this maze? That right click to open in new tab in Firefox is Deadly to my time!
Yesterday I was chatting with my friend Chris, and she wanted to show me something on the internet – I needed to open a new window. I told her I had ‘quite a few’ tabs already open in Firefox… then I counted them… 29!!! Did you know you could fit THAT many open tabs across the top of a laptop page???
Oh, yes before I forget – Leah kindly included one of my posts in the Getting Still series in the carnival – Getting Still #3 Stilling Your Thoughts. Thanks Leah!
Go! Enjoy the carnival – just don’t blame me if you don’t make it home in time for tea…
