What’s Up Wednesdays: Random EditionOctober 29th, 2008 by Michael Kwan
Sometimes I try to come up with a theme for What’s Up Wednesdays. Last week, for example, I focused on making money. Other times, it’s just a random compilation of posts that I found in the blogosphere and today’s edition clearly falls into the latter category. It’s hump day, so hopefully at least one of these posts will help you get over this hump (and get you ready for Halloween).
Damien Riley always has something interesting to say, whether it be about making money online or some random person from the past. I used to follow tennis religiously during the heydays of Pete Sampras, Michael Chang, and Martina Hingis. Going even further back in history, you find the crazy personality of John McEnroe, a man that Damien highlights in one of his recent posts. John’s tantrums are great for TV.
Roger Ebert may not be on television anymore, but he’s still very active in expressing his opinion. This expression is not only limited to movies, but also to the integrity of a reviewer. He has compiled a number of rules to doing movie reviews, but these rules can easily apply to writing and blogging in general.
Sally Chow may only be two years old, but it seems like she already has some potential career aspirations. Oh, you thought she was going to grow up to be a dot com mogul like her dad John Chow? Wrong! She’d much rather be a professional dancer. Watch her rock out to America’s Best Dance Crew.
Chris Bibey is a fellow freelance writer who I respect very much. He asks you to consider what is your greatest strength as a freelance writer. Believe it or not, freelance writers may not necessarily be.the best of writers, perhaps selling themselves based on their marketing ability or level of expertise instead. I agree that you should focus on your strengths.
Stephen Fung does more than buy scooters and impersonate Japanese businessmen. He’s also quite the whiz in the kitchen, producing a world class sea bass dish. Surf around his blog and you’ll discover other editions of the Dot Com Kitchen too.
