This week's web week in review actually covers a couple weeks because I didn't get it out last week, so a couple of these you have probably seen already, but they're good nonetheless.
So, now that the mad rush is over to get the iPhone 5, it's time to settle back and get back to reality. The rest of the world has been busy, you know, working. I spent a lot of time this week with my head down, focused on getting some stuff done.
Wow - this has been a crazy week with all kinds of things going on in the internet world! Godaddy basically crashed taking thousands of sites down with it (oops!), the new iPhone was released and all the pre-orders have already sold out, and Shark Tank started back up again!
The last couple weeks have been a lot of fun. I've been working with everyone who's involved in the niche site challenge and it's been a learning experience, no doubt. If you haven't already joined us, jump on in! There is plenty of time to catch up.
Here are a few things I found over the last week that I thought were good enough to collect and pass along here. Enjoy!
Okay - it's time to get back to some good Saturday morning reading material. I've been reading a lot lately. Books, that is. Blogs, not so much. My Kindle has been getting put through the paces on all kinds of good stuff. But that's another post.
There has been so much good stuff going on. And we've been insanely busy these days at Orracle Media. And it's all good stuff, because Orracle Media is enjoying growth, adding new team members and working with some incredible people and projects.
Lots of good things happening these days - when it rains it pours! I'm really excited about a couple new clients who've recently come on board. These are really cool projects that will be really fun to build.
Don't you love it when people do the right thing? This week the world heard about Karen Klein, who was the object of egregiously hateful taunting by a bunch of middle school kids on a bus. But this isn't about how the kids, it's how her story went viral and the internet responded in force. As of this morning the campaign that was originally started to send her on a nice $5000 vacation has raised more than $600,000 for her so she can retire! Wow.
It's these kinds of stories that restore a little bit of faith in humanity.
Welcome to the weekend! How did the week go for you? Did you get some stuff done? Move forward? Ship something?
It was a good, but crazy busy week here. I launched a new site, getting ready to launch a couple more, trying to get caught up on a new service for my clients, all while trying to keep my daughter reasonably busy now that she's on summer break. We're going to try to start learning to write code this summer.
So this morning marks the shelving of my personal blog and its consolidation in to this blog. It's been something I've been thinking about for a long time, but I've finally decided to pull the trigger.
I totally think this is the right decision as I look at the blogs of those that I admire, I see their consolidated presence (though with some exceptions).
I've been collecting the links for this week's Good Stuff post for a couple days and there have been a lot really cool things I've found. Make sure to tune in to the next podcast for more cool stuff.
It's all about shipping. Getting things done, making things happen and producing results. I've been cranking away working on a couple new services for Orracle Media, starting the first steps of putting together a webinar series, cranking up the podcast, and trying to crank out some projects and get things done!
Due to the afrorementioned nose-to-the-grindstone work this week, I didn't get as much time to visit my favorite cyber outposts. Nevertheless, after doing some catching up this morning, there was a ton of really good stuff.
