What happened to the 70′s, 80′s and 90′s. I mean what do they even call this? The Ten’s, the Twelve’s or do they just say Twenty’s for Twenty Twelve? We just aren’t chill anymore. The cool is lost but I’m not even sure anyone noticed and if they did I don’t think anyone really cares.
Enter. My daughters world. (She worked really hard this past year to graduate high school top of her class with an associates degree.)
Now it is mid summer….Act One.

Just read How to judge a new venture in 15 seconds. and wanted to pass it on as great advice.
“What problem will your new venture solve?” Their one-or two-sentence answers—10 or 15 seconds at the most—are often enough to predict the future.
Why? Because a new venture—any venture—needs focus. It needs a purpose. It has to solve an important customer problem and in some small way, improve the world.
An entrepreneur needs to develop a product, construct a compelling value proposition, gather resources and people, and figure out marketing and pricing, to say nothing of the challenges of leadership. But a relentless focus on customer pain gives a visionary founder a lot more cushion to work through the inevitable difficulties.
So, as an entrepreneur, we advise that you start by looking for trouble. Brainstorm things that people find disturbing, frustrating, urgent, or uncomfortable. Then, switch gears and develop cures. Focus on healing. Figure out how to make the pain go away and build a new venture around it, and articulate it to advisors and stakeholders.

I use WordPress and Blogspot for different blogs. I started with blogger but wanted a self-hosted blog so did my next blog on WordPress.
My mother, out of the blue, got Gullian Barret Syndrome. She is a 72-year-old woman who went from playing tennis 4 days a week to being in the hospital for over a month in excruciating pain that took weeks to diagnose. My sister was sending these very lengthy email updates every few days to all her friends. I had heard of blogs but did not really know what they were. I was wondering if this would be a good way to tell my mother’s story to a wide array of people. I know it is a rare disease but it seemed like everyone we told said they knew someone who had been diagnosed with this but they knew nothing of it. I love to write and figured I needed a way to channel my frustration in a productive way, so voila, I started a blog.
This process all started in December 2008.
I went to Dictionary.com to see what it had to say.
Definition of blog: an online diary; a personal chronological log of thoughts published on a Web page; also called Weblog.
Example: Typically updated daily, blogs often reflect the personality of the author.
Then I found a site that teaches basic blogging for free then more advanced blogging for a fee. I would refer you to it but I just spent the last 15 min looking for it and it is no longer there. I only did the free part because I was itching to start. Patience is not my virtue.
