My Life is Average – So funny!

This is funny and great time waster. http://mylifeisaverage.com/  This was given to me by a teen I know :-)

  From the site:

MyLifeIsAverage

Life is pretty normal today. MyLifeIsAverage is a place to share your everyday mediocrity. It is a place to post the mundane things in your life, and read about what makes life normal for other people.

We believe that for every fail story, or good story, there are about a million normal stories. So tell the world what makes your life average. Anyone can submit a story, because everyone’s lives are unexciting and insignificant at some time or another.

Why Register?

No one cares. It would let you comment on submissions, but really, does anyone need or want to read your literary flatulence?

Is your life awesome?

If it is, go away. We don’t want you here. Check out MyLifeIsG, you lucky jerk. I hope you step on a painful rock while walking barefoot. But not too painful of a rock.

Social Media is so cool or Capability Mom geeks out

Okay, if you know what social media is, great. If, like me, you had heard about it but really had no idea what it entailed – here is the scoop.

I decided to start a blog. I figured out a name and where to sign up (first Blogger then WordPress.com – more about that later). I started writing  (posting). I had no visitors and was only lower on the search results than, well, actually, I was the lowest on the search results.  Since using social media (I sound like a toothpaste ad), I have moved up the search results on Google considerably. Disclaimer: you have to type Capability Mom or Capabilty:Mom and I am second and third on the list. Let’s be clear, I am not doing anything other than twitter and a Facebook Fan Page.

I am thrilled with this mini-success.  I am the daughter of an electrical engineer and think math is one of the circles of hell.  I do, however, like to put things together. I like to rewire lamps and have recently started messing with  Facebook’s static FBML (their mark up language so you can customize your Fan Page).  What is a Fan Page? It is a page for a business or organization. While I haven’t figured out HTML yet (it may take me a bit more time), I have googled some sites that give tutorials.  Here is a link to Facebook FBML http://www.facebook.com/apps/application.php?id=4949752878  to explain what it is and here is a FBML tutorial  that shows you how to do it. Why do you want to? Because it is cool and let’s you put whatever you want in your Fan Page.

Geek out.
