Overwhelmed???!!!

OVERWHELMED???!!!

As I sit here at the PC thought I would take time to ask are you overwhelmed? As I awoke this morning my brain was hurting from all the internet information that I have researched over the past months about internet marketing, promoting, product sourcing and you name it I have done it.

Forget the fact that my nickname from my friends and family is Ms. Information, watch it now careful how you say that, we all from time to time get overwhelmed.

With the MySpace, Facebook, Youtube, MyBlogLog, eBay, Amazon, Ecrater, Craiglist, MSN, Alexa, SEO, Yahoo, Google, Wagglepop, Ioffer, Jott, Twitter, stand-alone websites, subscribed newsletters, email, blogging, e-books, forums, membership sites, video, talk radio shows, Web 2.0 now web 3.0 (‘the intelligent Web’), my friend your friend and every bodies friend, it’s a wonder that there are still strangers in the world. PHEW!!!

I just sometimes have to stop and punt, relax and take the load off. Being a research and information geek, love the stuff, it was bound to happen sometime and more times than we would like to admit. I tell ya there are times when I just can’t take anymore! OMG! Information and technology just keep expanding and expanding. The more there is the more I have to know. Forget knowledge is power how about knowledge is addicting!

Yeah I know there are ways to reduce this overwhelming feeling but oblige me for a moment in my vent to say it is just sometimes to much!

The first part on the way to recovery is yes to admit it and then sit back and work through it the best you can.

Now isn’t this ironic that I am blogging about this and using the exact technology that is a part of my overwhelming feeling. Believe it or not there is some therapy here just being able to blog about it and get it out.

Well now that I have done that time to get back to the information and research seeking mode. I heard someone say, “If you ever feel overwhelmed just think you could be deceased.” Kind of morbid but there is some truth to that, huh?

Here’s to you my overwhelmed friend, now go and relax! 🙂

Who is looking out for the faces and spaces of our kids ?!!

internet safety

Besides the prices of gasoline and food going up you just feel like you are being gouged everywhere. Especially when it comes to the essential items we need to survive like food, shelter, and water. I could go on for days about that one. But among those three basic essential items safety is getting another boost for the protection of kids on Facebook and MySpace. I for one am pleased being a child advocate this is something that is always a concern for me just how safe are the things we do in society and how that can effect the safety or our children. Well Facebook and MySpace have stepped up to the plate. Despite what the internet gossip is they have decided to do something about it.

Among other changes, Facebook has agreed to:

– Ensure companies offering services on its site comply with its safety and privacy guidelines.

– Keep tobacco and alcohol ads from users too young to purchase those products.

– Remove groups whose comments or images suggest they may involve incest, pedophilia, bullying or other inappropriate content.

– Send warning messages when a child is in danger of giving personal information to an adult.

– Review users’ profiles when they ask to change their age, ensuring the update is legitimate and not intended to let adults masquerade as children.

The protections included in the MySpace and Facebook pacts could be expanded to smaller services such as Friendster and Bebo, Blumenthal said.

“We’re entering a new era in social networking safety,” Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal said. “This agreement is open-ended in envisioning advances in technology that will permit even stronger steps in the future toward protecting kids’ safety.”

Don’t stop here guys keep goin’ is all I say!

Hello world just tell it!

Welcome to Utellit.

Yep that’s U-tell it, cause the world wants to know!

So I am gonna tell it….

I am an information geek that loves researching about things and well telling it. Being part of the attentive public, I think it is important to be as informed as you can about whatever you can. The more you know the better it is for you and our world. So why not join me and tell it.

This blog is about anything within the WordPress terms of service you want to tell, inform, teach, show go for it.

Being a internet marketer, blogger, eBay enthusiast you really gain a lot of information. So why not spread the wealth you just never know you might make the world a better place.

Teens and their cell phones

Okay look out this is not the only place this is happening but in Columbus, OH teens are sending nude photos of themselves or in compromising positions to each other. Now if this isn’t bad enough these pictures are being spread all over facebook, myspace, emailed to anyone who will take a look see.

I was watching for a minute the Tyra show the other day and saw teens on talking about kids in some high schools having sex in the bathrooms, classrooms with the teacher being asleep, stairwells. Besides the drugs, gambling, and killings at high schools now we have nude pictures being sent everywhere possible.

To top it off a raping, I read about was on this past Friday at a Cleveland High School. All I can say is be aware and alert to these things as much as you can for your children or children in your family. If you have a teen or know a teen talk to em they need us too.

They may play like the don’t and say, “Whatever, yeah right” but they are glad and are asking for us as adults to listen up and help. Speaking as a parent I just had to say this.

Looking out for kids check out this video below.

Question of the day?
