7 Things I Learned This Week #93 (Jobs, blogs, Giveaway, book, Browns, Internet, Bullying)


Jobs

Over at Budget Snob I learned that the highest paying job is Anesthesiologist. I am very surprised at this. Thought it would be a professional athlete!

Featured Blogger

I was a featured blogger this week over at Naivaze (Teresa Dawn's Random blog). You could be too! Go visit her blog, click to be featured and complete and email the interview form.

Spooktacular Book Blog Giveaway Hop

There is a Spooktacular book blog giveaway hop this week that we are participating in on our book blog. We are giving away three Stephen King books and including the links to other blogs that are participating in the hop. There is still time to browse through them and enter but hurry--it ends October 31.

Internet Security

Over at Mama Kat's Losin' It I read a blog post about Internet security and found that we should not use our real full names on our blog--oh well, oops. We really need to change the title of our blog and would like your help--it's boring anyway. We will keep our URL the same so it shouldn't affect any links you have to our blog. At least that is how I understand it. Please correct me if I'm wrong about this. Be sure to cast you vote in our poll on our left sidebar near the top.

Browns

Browns linebacker, Bowens, was named AFC Defensive Player of the Week! He returned two interceptions for touchdowns last Sunday. Abby watched the game with me and wrote all about it at Who Let The Dogs Out?

Tidbits From Who Switched Off My Brain

Just to give you a sampling of some things I learned by reading Who Switched Off My Brain?: Laugh and play every day, exercise, take time alone for prayer, love others no matter what, forgive freely, don’t eat when angry, touch, and root of stress is fear.  Evaluate every thought, the left and right brain work together and each process every thought differently.

My review of this book is posted book blog and maybe here too--it may be my favorite read for October!

Bullying Study

I was surprised to learn from USA TODAY this week that out of 43,321 teens surveyed, 47% had been bullied, teased or taunted in a way that seriously upset them at least once the past year.

I don't have my whole name on my blog, but it wouldn't take too long to click around and figure out who I am. I never considered internet security when I started blogging because I didn't think anyone besides my family and a handful of friends would read it. At any rate, I voted for your new name -- Right Where We Belong.

Colts fan here, but I do have family who are true to the Browns.

I guest posted this week, too at www.bargainbriana.com. Will check out Naivaze.

This bullying stuff is so frustrating! My niece, who is a psychologist, told me that our culture is the only one that is so exclusionary when it comes to social groups. What is up with that?! She said that it's about creating an "out group" so that you can be in the "in group," and cutting others down gives your group a way to bond. Sick.

Anesthesiologist was on Kyle's list of desired careers, but he decided against it. "Mom, I just couldn't handle accidentally killing somebody." I guess that's a good thing...

Have a wonderful weekend, Karen!!

I voted for your blog name. Just wanted you to know.

You learned a lot this week. You always do.

Have a terrific day, weekend and Happy Halloween. :)

I voted too. Concerning internet security it doesn't matter if you're in a position like I am where a little search of my name would come up with me anyway, with full name, because the publications I have written for published the articles on line. If, when the blog was started, you couldn't have been found online anyway and wanna remain anonymous then keep in sleuth like would be good. Stuff like that doesn't concern me. I don't know why and I hope I'm not too lax. I don't give my young children's school names and stuff like that though.

A lot of interesting stuff around, huh? Congrats on your being a featured blogger.

Have a great weekend.

It makes me nervous to even have my first name known on my blog so hopefully my full name never gets out there.

The book sounds very interesting. Bullying is so horrible and I just hope more people start standing up against it. Congrats on being a featured blogger!

I'm glad you like the book! I haven't finished it yet, but it's on my night stand with the other 6, 7 books I have yet to finish!

If you read my blog long enough, you'll figure out who we are. Whatever. I've had the blog for 3 years now and nobody has murdered me.
