Tonight at a Meetup called, “blog for money,” Bill Belew has challenged us to find a way to tie together a seemingly random bunch of phrases from each of the blogging participants who are here. So here I go!
Luckily some of my friends are here like Kevin Carney, who would like us to think about remodeling our houses. It’s too bad that I don’t have a house or I would take him up on that. He has a bunch of great looking remodeling ideas on his site.
Also, my buddy Clyde is here and since I’ve seen him twice today, he really is trying to hammer home that I need to change my password. He told a story about a gal who lost 10 years worth of emails and contacts because she had too simply of a password for someone to hack. Oh, and be sure to check out the Space Balls clip at the bottom. Hilarious!
Another guy named Richard showed up and asks us, “Why blog?” Richard is from Union City and seems like a nice guy. Apparently, he writes about writing. His blog is, “a collaborative writing project with the sole purpose of providing writers with all of the tools, training, inspiration and resources [he] can find.”
Across the room is a guy from Santa Clara who works in the world of hard money in California. I that has something to do with commercial property and from what I can tell on his site, even people with poor credit can qualify for this type of loan if the investment makes financial sense. Pretty cool!
Dave is an interesting character who likes to learn Chinese culture and phrases. He also likes to explain English idioms to Chinese readers as well. For example, “Turn a blind eye,” has a sordid past that includes a British war!
Next to me is ElénaMartina, a lady from Peru, who wrote all about arranged marriage in her book called Clinging to Deceit. She has lived in more countries than I have been to and has quite an interesting biography there on her blog.
Of course, what would any meeting be without some people who are focused on the healthy aspects of life! Across from me is Jason, who is working his way to riches by sharing Isagenix and the cleanse for life program.
To my right is Motoko who writes about healthy cooking with Asian and many other different types of food. She has lots of experience and event taught cooking classes at Macy’s!
The phrase I chose was National Finals Rodeo because I’d love to meet more people who like rodeo & country music when I get to NFR. Another one of my goals while in Las Vegas is to get a RedBull baseball cap. Yes, it’s a random goal for my trip, but whoever said I was normal.
This truly is a random collection of people.
