Talking About Talent

This post inspired by no life having miserable people who spend their days on social media wasting bandwidth and worthy people’s time.

Wanna know something about talent?

The first ones to doubt you on the internet, are always the ones who hide behind fake profiles.

They probably have some lame cartoon character picture as their profile photo, go by a weird name that doesn’t make sense, and owns no website (an account on Twitter, Instagram, etc. is not a website).

There is also a class of people who will, when asked, tell you their day job (whatever it is) is where their talent is.

I have a problem with people who fit these descriptions. These people that come on the internet running their fuckin’ mouth (coward keyboard warrior style), who play on social media all day trying to discredit someone (myself or someone else) who puts a lot of effort into his or her content creations.

The reality in my book by these comparisons, is that talent only really exists when you have busted your ass for years, earned your way into a day (or night) job that allows you nearly all of your time on the clock to work on your own businesses that bring you joy and profits.

Don’t ever tell me that I’m not talented, because I get paid to work and play, and you would not be reading this on my website without my talent that brought you here.

I Was Just Thinking

On my blog there is a category called Just Thinking, and in that category is where I occasionally write about things in the news or various other things including random thoughts, or something about productivity and trying to keep up with getting things done. Below are some recent topics I wrote about that you may interest you.

Random Things Digests

I continuously find interesting links to share with my website viewers. I share these links in the form of “Random Things”. Random Things Digests contain collections of various internet content I’ve found to share with you that you may find interesting. You will find Random Things always posted first in real time, as I discover them, on my home page. Each week I post the Random Things from my home page in a blog post to the Random Things Digests Archive so that you don’t miss all the great shares and information.


A large part of what makes a great resource for information, are the lists I write and maintain. Check out the lists below that may interest you.

Podcast Spotlights

Podcast Spotlights are a new thing I started doing in September 2020. I have to admit that I don’t listen to many podcasts myself personally. If I do listen to one, it’s usually the Armin Van Buuren’s ASOT (A State Of Trance) podcast. My Podcast Spotlights are a way for me to connect with more favorite Podcasts, while also highlighting some that you may enjoy. See the list below of the current Podcast Spotlights.
