Every Wednesday, I gather up five interesting blog posts from around the Internet to share with you. Last week, we took a look at timeshares and roommates and the week before that, I rewarded the top thinkers of the previous month. There’s another eclectic collection for you to read today, so sit back, grab a coffee, and enjoy.

Umair Haque starts us off by saying that we should forget about developing an elevator pitch. Everyone has one and most of them end up sounding far too generic. Instead, he says it’s more important to develop what he calls a dumbwaiter pitch. Can you describe your business in a compelling way using just one word. That’s quite the challenge!

Tyler Cruz knows that it costs money to make money. That’s why he spent over $100,000 last year in business-related expenses. About half of that is his own salary, but that still means that he spent about $50,000 on hosting, advertising, programming, domains, and so on. I reminded him that his “writing services” expenses were quite low and how he could rectify that.

Obzokee used to be more of a traditional blog, but it has since transitioned into an online job posting board. If you’re looking for some telecommuting work, you might want to apply for the viral marketing writer position. There’s no explicit mention of compensation, so I suppose the rate of pay is up to negotiation. You’ll want some gadget knowledge for this writing position.

Raul Pacheco, to my knowledge, doesn’t own a car. He also recently lost his driver’s license. So, he decided to take the bus to Harrison Hot Springs. The Greyhound bus took Raul from Vancouver to Chilliwack and then it took two additional buses before he made it to Harrison. I made this exact same trip several years ago and, like Raul, I recommend that you drive instead. Sorry, Al Gore.

Sarah Perez of ReadWriteWeb shows us that a simple tweet is comprised of much more than just 140 characters. In fact, the anatomy of a tweet is far more complex than that, including all sorts of metadata. It records when it was sent, the timezone from which it was sent, what Twitter application was used, who sent the update, and so much more.
