The Things That Have Been Keeping Me Busy

I haven’t been blogging as much as I would like lately. I have been a little busy lately (and will be for awhile longer). Been looking for a new place to live (so eventually we will be moving).

As many of you may have noticed I’ve recently joined SocialVibe and I have been “working” at getting people to click my help now button (to the right—>). You can also find me on SV at http://www.socialvibe.com/MonksPoint.

I’ve became of member at http://www.abetteropinion.com, which is becoming a very good site for getting opinions on movies/books/video games. The more people that join the better it will be (so go join now). I’ve already rated over1,000 movies (added a few of those too, only have 2-3,000 to go).

I’ve recently discovered a great site http://www.yelp.com/, which we use all the time to decide where to go to eat or local happenings. (Another place to write reviews).

The site that has me really excited lately is http://www.babbel.com/, which I highly recommend to anyone wanting (or needing) to learn another language. I’ve just started learning Spanish. Babbel has a lot of free courses (with sound) and you can find other members that are native speakers of the language you are learning, get help and help others that are learning your native language. The only down side to me is they don’t have Latin.

I’ve also been working on a writing exercise to help with creativity. I’m hoping to have it on here in a few days. A few people I know are excited about it and can’t wait to try it (me included).

I’ve finally broken down and joined Facebook, which I am not addicted too yet.

    Hi, thanks for the SocialVibe click!

    Dropped by for two reasons: to click your SocialVibe and to check out your blog, which I think is great btw. =)

    Happy blogging!
