Tweet I hated online dating when I was single. I must have changed my profile on JDate five times to try and strike a tone that I thought was indicative of my personality and I still never got close. I think most people struggle to “sell themselves” in the online setting because the end result comes […]

Tweet I had a whole thing worked out for today’s post – something about routines that I guess I’ll get too later – when something happened that I think merits some discussion. I’m calling it “The Brogan Effect.” I wrote a post back in October about meeting Chris Brogan and the effect it had on my […]

Tweet Have a great weekend everyone – go out on a date, hang out with friends, throw a party, do whatever you want. No judgement here, but before you run off to Facebook to upload the embarrassing pics you snapped last night, don’t think for one second that nobody is going to look at them. […]

Santa Claussman (or Hanukkah Harry – I’m Jewish, OK?) came to the Lublin household early this year and brought with him the Motorola Droid. I should admit up front that I suffer from big time iPhone envy. I love the […]

Tweet http://www.flickr.com/photos/dpstyles/ / CC BY 2.0“> Have you heard about foursquare? For the uninitiated, it’s game where you earn points by visiting different points of interest in a city (nightclubs, restaurants, museums, etc.).

Tweet Secret blogging tip: When you’re “blocked” you can find an interesting video and share it with people. That totally counts. I don’t know what my favorite part of this video is, but I think the fact that it isn’t blues music at all in a dead heat with the bouncing twitter bird, which I […]

Tweet Happy Birthday, The Internet! Oh, the times we’ve had together. When I was but a child, I play chess with people in russia using you (and a Commodore64) and felt that in some small way I was doing my part to end the cold war. When I was in high school, you let me send […]

Tweet If you’re reading this and you’re a friend of mine, you already know who Dracu-Pig is. For those of you who don’t, first let me say welcome to my blog. (I wonder if you were searching for vampire/pig hybrids or something “social media-y”…) I thought I would share the origin story of Dracu-Pig because […]
