Facebook Manners: a video

April 16, 2009


Here’s a cute introduction to Facebook manners. Hmmm, I’ve broken one of these rules; can you guess which?

commenter’s remorse

September 5, 2007


Most people’s first introduction to writing for blogs is commenting on other people’s blogs; it’s a gateway drug for sure!

Take F.Scott Fitzgerald here: he wrote what many consider to be the Great American Novel (everyone who doesn’t consider it to be Huck Finn, that is). And he also wrote these very wise little precepts for his daughter, which I borrowed from One Little Detail’s […]
