Sunday Link Party!

Photo of the week:

I actually have new photos! My husband and I went to a fair yesterday and saw this chicken with lots of ribbons and a trophy.

Prize-Winning Bantam.

It's a prize-winning chicken.

The rest of the photos of my visit to the fair are here.

While I’m promoting my own stuff, I’d like to call out a post I wrote late last week for The Daily Wishlist. 5 tips for starting your holiday shopping now!

25 Common Media and Web Marketing Mistakes. (Online Social Networking)

Nutella Caramel Hazelnut Brownies? Are you kidding me? (The Pioneer Woman)

I’m going to Florida next month, and we’ve obtained reservations at Bern’s Steakhouse. If you’re in the Tampa area and looking for a great meal with some fabulous ambience, I highly recommend it.

This company recovered my hard drive.

If you read this blog, you know that I’m a massive fan of Mythbusters. Here’s a video of Adam Savage giving a presentation on obsessions at the Entertainment Gathering in December 2008.

When to Cut Back on Web Habits.

by Jamie Sanford on April 8, 2009

This is one in a series of posts pulled from Chris Brogan’s “100 blog topics I hope YOU write.” (#54)

When to cut back on web habits:

  • when you start referring to family members as @theirtwittername
  • when you start thinking about what hashtags would be applicable to live conversations
  • when you don’t remember the last time you spent a day free from internet access
  • when you stay up too late/ignore other responsibilities because you are obsessed with reviewing everything in your feed reader

I also asked this question on Twitter: What makes you realize you need to step away from the computer/internet for a while?

  • From BlankStareKY: i can’t help you — i’m so into the internet right now i’m almost the lawnmower man. that’s a reference only cool people get.
  • From BlankStareKY: OH! i have one! if you’re tweeting references to The Lawnmower Man then maybe you need to step away for a while. that counts.
  • From SparklingAmber: when I check my feeds and there is nothing, because I just read them all a few minutes ago, and nobody has blogged yet.. time!
  • From computerguyz: My eyes begin to cross each other

Thanks to everyone who participated in my mini-poll.  Anyone else with thoughts on this topic?
