Deadsville, USA : DC in August

So, it is summer in the district. Despite all my verrry exciting news and the fun of telling everyone, it is August… in Washington D.C…. in a federal government agency.

It is deadsville, U S of A.

While quiet can be nice, really nice, it can also be … quiet.
Very. quiet.
So. quiet. that I… am. starting. to. drifffffttttt.

Like a snowbank:
smooth, serene and sleepy.

Sure, blame it on the grey carpets, grey walls, empty hallways, lack of boss-like figures but is there something else going on?

I have loottssss of work to do and can’t seem to do anything besides think weddingy thoughts, watch olympics and literally stare into space. a happy stare into space, a deep deep calm, slumbery smiley stare into space.

I think I know what it is. Like how I used to get sick right after finals every semester, or how you go home and take a longgg nap after finally finishing that project. I think I have been stressing and fretting and relationshipping for so so long before meeting my love that now that I can rest my body is really ready to REST.

And rest I am, body, mind and soul in this blissy spacey sleepy place i am not too familiar with. maybe it’s happy?

Like the Interweb? Like Money? You’ll love 30DC

So this one goes out to all my bloggy pals, wanna-be-bloggers, those who like any of the following things: money, the interweb, blogging, internet marketing.

Nope I get nothing for this. Nope, there’s no cost, charge, catch or other craziness. This is simply a program started by now Internet Supastahs, Ed Dale and Dan Raines to teach we newbies about internet marketing.

The Thirty Day Challenge

What’s the challenge: You will make $10 online in 30 days. (Okay 31, who’s counting?)

[Caption]

Why am I telling you? I stumbled upon this a little over a month ago. I literally can’t remember how. I signed up, did the “preseason” and learned a TON (how to use social marketing tools like twitter, friendfeed; how to find people out in cyberspace with like interests/goals, professional backgrounds; the best way to keep track of all the blogs I like to read, how to start thinking about a blog on my own domain, launching a podcast, employing video.) Besides which I “met” some great friends (and a hillarious, patient, great teacher in Ed Dale, Australian web-preneur. And have participated in some wonderful conversations about the future of journalism, new media, old media, Washington, writing (my personal interests or “niches.”) You could do the same for whatever you’re into.


Yes, these guys have a product that the “rest of the year” they try to sell, but not in August. Not to you. Nor will I.

Thirty day challenge starts today, August 1. I recommend perusing the pre-season cheat sheet, joining the forums and letting me know you’re there, too. It can be a bit overwhelming

Can’t wait to see ya there.
