Oh, now I know what you meant when you said See 'n Say. I got nothing for animal sounds, though. I don't recall ever hearing animal sounds from other languages or cultures while traveling. Very interesting post, though! It sounds like Shadow doesn't take your English very seriously.

I ... uh ... listen to obscure stuff.
I'm all for the fun. The way I see it, if someone means to do us harm, they don't need fancy technology to do so. Disney isn't going to risk their empire on something that isn't safe for their guests.
With that said, I still think there is a concern about any random employee having access to all that information on guests. There are sick people everywhere - in schools, daycares, churches, and yes ... even Disney. This seems to give a sick person very easy access to delicate information.

Great post and so true - we would see the difference as a community and society if we took more time to be thoughtful and thank others. Praise is good for the giver and receiver.

Great post, Jason. My best writing is done in the morning too. And yes! People do often assume we are bums because we happen to have a non-traditional workplace. :)
One of my favorite travel blogs is Aviators and a Camera, run by my friend Kirsten Alana. She is a world traveler, foodie, and photographer. I was able to spend time with her in Asheville on the trip Ken mentions above (thanks again, Ken!) and it was so nice to see her again.
Another one of my daily reads is the fabulous Jen Bianco's My Life's A Trip. She writes with razor sharp wit and consistently captures some of the most unique shots of any photographer. She's a true jetsetter, always on the move and in a different country when she isn't at home in LA.

@jasonkonopinski Fun!! I'd stop out (because I've been wanting to check it out anyway), but Mike is out of town right now so I won't have a sitter for the kids.

Great post, Jason. I have been struggling with my own rate structure and will be giving the link you provided a thorough read. I am caught between not wanting to undervalue myself and not wanting to come across like I have a bloated sense of self-worth. Thanks for these insights!
As a freelance writer and blogger who focuses much of what I do on food and cooking, I'm going to disagree with #2. I hear it sometimes too, the complaining about food posts, but for me it's part of my job so I won't be stopping anytime soon.

I don't have the time to compile all my saved playlists (which are typically individual albums) on Spotify into one large playlist, so I just combined maybe the first 25 or so albums and made that random. I'm not going to bother suggesting one band people may not have heard of that I'm digging ... because I have an "inkling' that most people probably haven't heard of most of these anyway. ;) I'm listing them in this fashion: Band - Song Name.
Alcest - Faiseurs de Mondes
Little Esther - I'm a Bad, Bad Girl
Pearls & Brass - 1,000 Cities
Stinking Lizaveta - Yagans Head
Neurosis - End of the Harvest
Bad Liquor Pond - Electric Splash
Trippy Wicked & the Cosmic Children of the Knight - Southern
Sir Lord Baltimore - Lake Isle of Innersfree
Melissa Auf der Maur - Father's Grave
Rancho Relaxo - See What I Have Seen
Fun stuff, Ken!

Thanks for including my style, Ken! I'd like to try vlogging but it most definitely will not be in the shower.

Great post, Ken! It's true: cupcakes and tasty pig parts can bring even those with the furthest from world views together. Thanks so much for the mention and I'm going to check out all the other blogs you posted. I've never had sauerbraten, can you imagine? I'll be giving this a try.

Holy crap! This is an amazing contest, AND a great way to get others to verbally demonstrate their love for local business. Great idea!
I often send tweets out about small businesses, most notably breweries (surprise surprise). I also regularly support them on Facebook.
For this contest I'm going to share Family Tree Farm here in Red Lion, PA. 'Tis the season to get a Christmas tree and there is no sense buying one shipped from Timbuktu (ok, they don't probably grow Fraser firs there) when you can get one from the next town over. They have over 60,000 trees to choose from – cut your own or precut – and the prices are decent. Our tree was 8+ feet tall and cost $54. http://familytreefarmexperience.com/
I'll be sharing the farm on Twitter and Facebook now!

I understand some of who you're talking about, the people who contribute only motivational quotes: it's dull and predictable. However, to unfollow someone for peppering their dialogue with quotes seems cold and harsh. If it's irrelevant to you, certainly unfollow, but I personally find much value in the individuals I follow who occasionally throw a motivational quote in.
