@dinodogan Here's my honest two cents. I love the app. I'm seriously considering how this might work for broadcast journalism students as a way to distribute their electronic portfolios. It loaded a bit slowly on my phone, but nothing that caused me not to want to use it. My only real complaint about the app is that it's strange to have someone's face on my phone every time I look at the screen. Now, you're a handsome fellow, I understand, but it's a bit much each time I look at that screen. Perhaps a logo version of your name? Or maybe you want to keep this for impact. It certainly keeps you top of mind.


Are downloads going well?

@zoeywrites  The negative people... I can't believe I didn't mention them. I can't stand it when people act all snarky, but really they're just being a jerk. I unfollow them too. 


Thanks so much for reading and commenting!

@Liz Ramirez  My primary question remains "Is this news?" I don't think the way they covered it was news. Lost is a television show. This tragedy was quite real. The coverage was insensitive to the families involved.

@KaylaBennett1  Using the poster just isn't news. I think that's my biggest concern here. If you offend someone while telling the news, at least you're reporting something real. Otherwise, it seems like you're being offensive just because you can.

@TerranceCraft  I didn't watch Lost either, Terrance, but I agree that it's "too soon." In fact, I would argue that it always will be too soon for those families. Also, news agencies should report news, not use memes or altered posters in their reporting. It's just not conceptually sound to me. Why risk alienating your audience? It just doesn't make a lot of sense.

@Technically Easy  It doesn't seem like a difficult rule to me either, but I guess many people struggle with it.

I love getting "thank you" emails. I mean, I appreciate any thanks, but it's really nice to get emails because I know it takes an extra step. To me, this means the person must really have liked the post or my site in general.

I think it's great that you always feel on task. I honestly haven't felt anything but behind since I began writing my dissertation. It's always looming out there. I don't think I'll ever truly feel caught up until it's done.

I can't imagine them changing the way that Twitter engagement works because it is so successful. They may change the way we notify each other of comments and topics (aka: the method), but I think the functions will stand.

I am loving the warmer weather. I only like winter during the Christmas season. Other than that, I think I need to move someplace warm year round. It was warm here last week. Now it's cold again. It's a bummer. I'm ready for consistently warm days!

This is a good list of annoying writing errors. No. 11 really burns me. The excessive use of literally when writers don't really mean literally has started bugging me recently.
