We all know that in todays world, CONTENT is king. Everyone needs content—television (public, satellite, mainstream, sports), radio (terrestrial & extraterrestrial), bloggers (business, travel, food, history), tweeters, facebookers, linkediners, authors, memo writers, reporters, newspapers, newsletters, and it goes on and on and on.

 

Many of us knew that at some point, we’d run out of content—meaningful content that is. It’s almost like knowing that at some point, we’d reach the end of the Internet (I’ve been to the end of the Internet, have you?).

 

I do a lot of reading and well, over time, I’ve been collecting articles with content that support my theory that we eventually reach the point where meaningful content is tough to get. Here is my collection. Enjoy.

 

“Lice–Eradication Services: Testing Salons and an At–Home Service—Leave the Nitpicking to the Professionals” (Elizabeth Garone, Wall Street Journal, May 20, 2014).

–  Tell that to Mom and Dad when junior comes home one day from sharing the batting helmet with all the other kids.

 

“Japan’s New Craze: Photos of Hamster Buttocks” (Wall Street Journal, May 24, 2014).

–  Safer than some of the stories I hear come out of Hollywood.

 

“How to Hold a Cheeseburger” (Food Network Magazine, June 2014).

–  Does it change if the burger is well-done or medium rare?

 

“Smart Toilets Arrive in the United States” (Wall Street Journal, May 27, 2014).

–  Smarter than Yogi Bear, the average bear?

 

“Wanted: Hermit, Must be People Person” (Wall Street Journal, June 19, 2014).

–  Swiss town advertisement for a town hermit after their hermit resigned.

 

“Resignation of Mayor Sought Over Dog Poop” (Associate Press 6/15/14).

–  Would dog poop work on most of our politicians?

 

 

Good luck, good networking, and remember, write those blog posts with meaningful content and send them to us.
