Blogging By The Numbers

Dear reader, I see that you stopped in – THANK YOU!

I’m very thankful for everyone who tunes into what I have to say and display to the world. I try my best to have interesting Zazzle products and to post fascinating articles for your enjoyment. I’ve always loved current events and pop culture, so I hope you’ve had fun and learned something new from my blog.

I’m also trying to change careers – and for me, that’s led me to change focus a bit. I’m exploring photography more, so expect some more photos. I’m working on obtaining a DSLR camera to highlight what I believe is a burgeoning career in that field. However, that’s a longer-term project. In the short-term, I’m trying my hand, literally, at blogging to create an online portfolio to showcase my writing skills.

As of this writing, I don’t yet have 100 bloggers, and I see that many people I follow have thousands – I aspire to have that kind of audience! I’m learning from all of you every day.

Many of you are fellow Zazzlers, many are full-time bloggers, and many are WordPress supporters. You’ve been with me, clicking on and “liking” my posts, which is extremely helpful to me in so many ways. You are helping someone personally and professionally, and I sincerely appreciate it.

Again, thank you for your kindness in helping a fellow blogger out 🙂

“Drive Me Insane” – A Highly Recommended Interactive Website!

OOOOH, this is amazing!! I love interactive websites where I can interact with machines or people. Actually, on this site, you can do both!

The interactive website called “Drive Me Insane” is truly a labor of love – and patience:

From the owner: “This site allows you to use home automation to have fun at someone else’s expense. Turn on their lights, play with the screams and voices, and get visual feedback on all of it. And yes, it’s all real.”

The owners are Paul and Gertie, and they’ve set up 2 user-controlled rooms where you can turn off and on lights/lamps, a fan, gadgets, and other cool doodads. You can pan the camera in the office. You can turn on the audio to hear whatever is going on.

In addition to the fun, the website offers instructions on how you can set your home up to do the same – off or online. They use X10 cameras, and I can vouch for the validity of using the controllers, and they’re not expensive. I happen to use my X10 setup for home security.

In their office you can even type in a message to be displayed on their scrolling marquee:

“Send a message to this cam by typing it in the text area and clicking the envelope. Your messages will appear on the marquee sign in the office and will be read by a voice synth.”

Go have some fun now!
