This is written by The Simple Dollar Also, please read about their favorite charity, The Child Abuse Prevention Center The film The Shawshank Redemption has become something of a Western pop culture touchstone, mostly because it is the story of an individual human spirit refusing to break and, in that refusal, rising up to inspire others.

Please rate this article using the star system below. The competition will be judged primarily on the input from readers like you. Thank you.This is written by Steven Hodson from WinExtra.com I’ve tried several times to start this essay using various hot ticket items as a starting point and in the end I hit the delete button and come back to the why’s and wherefore’s of why I started blogging. Not that the idea of sharing my thoughts or points of view was anything new for me. After all when you’ve been around computers as long as I have; going on the better part of 20 years, you see a lot of the next big thing‘s come and go. Long before […]

Please rate this article using the star system below. The competition will be judged primarily on the input from readers like you. Thank you. This is written by Tim from ptvGuy Worthy of note is that this essay was written before my last post on comment spam floods and was submitted a few days ago but was lost in my spam-can. I just couldn’t pass up this opportunity to publicly acknowledge the incredible spam community out there for their unbelievably huge investment of time and thought and innovation in their efforts to spam my blog. I am absolutely in awe of the shear willpower of these people in the face of such widespread rejection. And, quite frankly, I just want them […]

2006 Web Technology Trends An essay on web technology trends with some large generalizations, some major points and some minors thoughts from McManus. Whenever I see an article like this, I would also like to see some revenue numbers associated with each entry. Though Google was mentioned quite a few times throughout the article, there was no mention of Google’s stock prices or its market cap (which I think are very valid). Also, it would be very interesting to create a heat map of this article to see which phrases/names/buzzwords were used the most in describing tech trends in 2006.

Deacon Jim Konicki The world of faith blogs is fascinating in its depth; and in what it, as a tool, can allow you to accomplish. Faith blogging has unlocked the world of faith to seekers and researchers in levels unprecedented since the great efforts at Christian evangelization that occurred between the 15th and 18th century. There are several aspects to this depth. The Personal and Public Nature of Faith Blogging As […]

This is written by Edrei Zahari from Kamigoroshi.net It’s easy to say that blogging is one of the easiest thing to start. All you need is a blogging application, access to the net and a thought that crosses your mind. There is no doubt that there are a lot of articles out there that would give you the breakdown of every known blogging application to comment spam filters to the hints and tips of applying Search Engine Optimization (SEO) or ads for the purpose of attracting visitors and making money on the sidelines.

Please rate this article using the star system below. The competition will be judged primarily on the input from readers like you. Thank you. This is written by Mark Styles from Lambic They’re everywhere, and they’re annoying. They’re called CAPTCHAs and they’ve become a ubiquitious part of blog commenting. Bloggers use them as a quick and dirty solution to an annoying problem without consideration for the annoyance they will cause the reader. I want to persuade all bloggers who are using them to please stop. What are they? CAPTCHA stands for “completely automated public Turing test to tell computers and humans apart”. I know it should really be CAPTTTTCHA but hey, I didn’t come up with the acronym. Before bigots destroyed […]

Please rate this article using the star system below. The competition will be judged primarily on the input from readers like you. Thank you. This is written by David from Optoblog.com I am an optometric physician. I began blogging when my friend, Josh Bancroft of tinyscreenfuls.com, introduced me to it in October of 2004. I soon caught the vision of RSS and blogs, and finally started my own at optoblog.com. I had intended it to be the start of something: optometrists blogging about all things eye doctor and also giving feedback to the ophthalmic product industry. Unfortunately, no one else bothered to join the conversation (at least publicly, but more about that later). Why are there not more optometrists, or for […]
