    [Twitter] Reaching Out to Birth Parents Via Social Media
    Once you get everything up and running, you can extend your search through Twitter, Google+, Instagram and more. 'According to PBS.org , adoptions represent approximately 2.5 percent of all children in the United States. That means that each year, there are 1.5 million adoptions taking place in the U.S. alone. But what about these kids’ natural parents? Do they ever go looking for them? And if so, how do they go about doing this?

    [Twitter] How to Become a ‘Rockstar’ Web Developer (Without the Risk of Fatal Bus Accidents)
    M usicians do some crazy stuff. For example, they sit in a room, alone, and play scales: long sequences of notes — up and down, for hours. And they never enjoy it. Anyone who has lived with (or next door to) a musician can attest that these dreaded scales are not songs. They aren’t melodic, interesting, or even pretty. They’re just… scales. Why would musicians do this? Lots of reasons, but here are three big ones: Scales make a great warm-up. Scales build good technique (aka, “chops”). Scales show up in actual music, ALL the time.

    [Twitter] Why I read 31 books in 2011
    On Becoming Baby Wise – Ezzo (Thank you Stephanie Wonderlin for putting me onto this for Baby Espo along with some entertaining Twitter trolls). Exactly one year ago today, I read Arik Hanson ’s blog post on the 26 books that he planned to read over the course of the year. It inspired me to give it a whirl and see if I could read that many. When the dust and grime from the books settled, wound up reading 31 over the course of the year. You might ask yourself why anyone would devote their time to finishing a book and start a new one every two weeks and it is a perfectly good question.

    While it doesn’t have the same scale as Twitter, for instance, Tumblr is still a community that houses fans of various shows. 'The work that is created by fans of a particular show can be a strong creative outlet. If the show, movie, or what have you is engaging enough, chances are that a select number of people will be driven enough to create works of their own based off of it. Everything from graphics to stories can be created but it seems like the latter became a subject worth talking about as of late. No, we don’t get our plotlines from Tumblr,” Moffat said.

    [Twitter] The Misnomer of Social Networking
    When people like a page on Facebook, answer something on Quora, recommend someone on LinkedIn or tweet something on Twitter, they do those things not because of community but because of their identity. It is a fallacy to suggest social networking is about networking, opines Jeff Hurt. Identity comes first, relationship building second, and networking with the community third. Social networking sites are social identity sites. I love (insert brand name here),” says something about us. It establishes our identity. We don’t do it just to say something about the company. It is about us.

When I was a teenager, I had a fantasy to write a best-selling book. also write a blog from my city council desk.

    [Twitter] Another tool we’ve all been waiting for: Timely
    It’s a scheduling tool for tweets, based on an analysis of your Twitter account activity. I’ve been testing Timely , developed by the great guys at Flowtown. It’s insanely easy – there’s a handy bookmarklet, and you can just click to send something you want to tweet to your Timely queue. READ THIS GREAT POST about why scheduling tweets is important – not only to get the most bang for your buck when you want to post something important, but also to limit the possibilities you might annoy your followers by posting too often.

PS: one question, some people have commented on Twitter that they want the ‘subscribe to comments’ feature switched back on. Those visiting ProBlogger today will notice that we’ve just released a new theme. It isn’t a complete overhaul in terms of look – but rather an evolution/refresh (much needed). Hopefully you’ll find ProBlogger a little easier to navigate and a little less cluttered. refreshed front page with new featured post layout.
