Blogging is a dying art. Well, maybe not dying, but evolving art. I still feel as though the blog is a powerful tool but it doesn't matter if you have the greatest ideas if no one reads it. I've created a powerful twitter handle that garnered almost 5,000 genuine followers but I have almost completely abandoned that. My YouTube channels have gotten millions of views, but since I wasn't the one creating the content I haven't been able to capitalize on the views as of yet. I still have an idea in my backpocket but I don't want to jinx it. Pheed was a lot of fun and probably had the best features of any social media site, but no one uses it.
The funny thing is that I've figured out a way for people to make money off the internet, but because it is so complex, I'm finding it hard to get anyone to buy in. Maybe I'm just asking the wrong people.

The Redskins were victorious this week against the Chicago Bears. I'm really glad because I don't think we would have had a snowball's chance in hell to beat the Peyton Manning's Broncos after losing yet another game. Roy Helu, the back up running back, had a fantastic game scoring three rushing touchdowns. RGIII was also able to show off some of his mobility this week. Last but not least, the Redskins have their starting running back, Alfred Morris to round out and dynamic running offense.
So what could I possible have to complain about?
Last week we played the Dallas Cowboys and decided that we weren't going to run the ball. This was crazy considering that Dallas' defensive line was completely decimated by injury. I yelled at my TV and even posted status updates on Facebook pleading with them to run the ball. All to no avail. Sometimes I wonder what the hell Kyle Shanahan is doing. If he was fired after that game I would not have been surprised, because after that lackluster play calling, he would have deserved it. But considering his father is running the team, I doubt he even came close to losing his job..
I will be yelling at my TV again this week when the Redskins play the Broncos. I hope this time they listen. #HTTR

What would you say if you were driving to a Dave Matthews Band concert and saw Dave Matthews stranded on the side of the road?
That's just what happened to Emily Kraus and her boyfriend, who spotted Matthews as they were traveling to his concert in Hershey, Pa., on Saturday.
"We saw him on the other side of the road and we pulled my car in here," Kraus told CBS' WHP-TV affiliate. "And he picks up his bike and throws it up here."
Matthews was on a preshow bicycle ride when his bike broke down.
"I did not have a cell phone on the bicycle. So I thought, 'S---," Matthews told the audience later at Hersheypark Stadium. "And then a nice lady named Emily rode up in a red car with a bicycle rack on it and gave me a ride on to the gig."
Needless to say, the 7-minute ride to the show was a bit surreal for Kraus with, you know, Dave Matthews in the back seat.
"We didn't know how to make conversation with him in fact, so we were talking about his tour and where he had come from," Kraus said. "He had just been in Cincinnati and he said 'I'm taking a short break after this one because I have to drop my daughters off at camp.' He was just a very humble guy."
The 46-year-old Grammy-winning singer-songwriter invited the pair to dinner and gave them backstage passes and memories that will last a lifetime—or at least until they pick up another stranded rock star.
"My cheeks still hurt from smiling, giggling and laughing all night long," Kraus wrote on Facebook.
Matthews also signed their tickets with a note: "Thanks for the ride."
"I woke up this morning, and I rolled over and I said, 'OK, yeah that really happened yesterday," she said. "It was surreal. We couldn't believe it."

Me and Toniann were sitting on the porch watching the storm roll in. I was trying to explain to her how a blog works. We decided to take some Facebook pictures with the standard poses, but after awhile we got bored and took an anti-Facebook picture.
