Titans like Apple, amazon and AT&T cower when I say, “Guess I gotta blog about that!” Okay, so they may not cower much, but the blog is a powerful tool.

My Real Blog: http://kiss-keepitsimpleschmuck.blogs...

I started a blog here on goodreads which hardly had any visibility or interest so I removed it.
