Not Trying Hard Enough!

Haven’t posted in some days but I’m not trying hard enough! Makes me think of one expression I hate – “stepped up” – as in “he stepped up.” There’s a Wal-Mart commercial that shows us, when an employee rescues a car crash victim, the moral values that it teaches it’s employee followers. The crashed person’s son tells us: “That was a good thing he did. He stepped up.” Or something like that. Sports people like to say that.
This has nothing to do with that.

    – strean is kinda vanilla. You might look at Yahoo’s front page
    and note how they write post titles to get viewers to open the links.
    You might try adding a video or a related pic or two
    to grab readers interested about what you’ve written. Just my opinion, it would make your blog a little livelier.
