Here’s a great new site that I’ve found BlogTalkRadio.com.  It allows anyone to host their own talk radio show over the internet.  If you browse on over, you can listen in to other talk shows in progress to get an idea for your own show.

I’m planning to host a Learning Strategies Talk Show.  I’ll post up the time when I get it scheduled.  I’m really interested in others who would like to join in and share the show.  Just add a comment or drop me a note at learningpaths@gmail.com.

Anyone else doing a show like this or now of other services like this one?  I’d like to know that too!

I just found another site Talkshoe.com

After reading lots of blogs and especially the comments, I think ranting is very poplular.  Sometimes it’s just an argument for the sake of arguing.  Here’s a interesting video that’s a lot like some of the blogs.  It’s also good for all the Monty Python fans out there.

One of my favorite quotes is from the Elvis Presley song “Are you lonesome tonight?” where he sing, “Someone once said, the world is a stage…”  Well I think that person was Shakespere but I could be wrong.  Having the right quote at the right time can add a lot to your writing and speaking.  So here are some quotes from some very quotable people, feel free to submit your favorites:

  • Unquestionably, there is progress. The average American now pays out twice as much in taxes as he formerly got in wages.
    H. L. Mencken
  • Ask not what you can do for your country. Ask what’s for lunch.
    Orson Welles
  • About all I can say for the United States Senate is that it opens with a prayer and closes with an investigation.
    Will Rogers
  • Another thing that freaks me out is time. Time is like a book. You have a beginning, a middle and an end. It’s just a cycle.
    Mike Tyson
  • A person who won’t read has no advantage over one who can’t read.
    Mark Twain
  • I don’t think silicone makes a girl good or bad.
    James Caan
  • For days after death hair and fingernails continue to grow, but phone calls taper off.
    Johnny Carson
  • I found there was only one way to look thin, hang out with fat people.
    Rodney Dangerfield
  • A word to the wise is not sufficient if it doesn’t make sense.
    James Thurber
  • A man’s got to take a lot of punishment to write a really funny book.
    Ernest Hemingway
  • I never rooted against an opponent, but I never rooted for him either.
    Arnold Palmer
  • Always go to other people’s funerals, otherwise they won’t come to yours.
    Yogi Berra
  • I’m not going to buy my kids an encyclopedia. Let them walk to school like I did.
    Yogi Berra
  • I am a kind of paranoid in reverse. I suspect people of plotting to make me happy.
    J. D. Salinger
  • I guess when you turn off the main road, you have to be prepared to see some funny houses. Stephen King
  • At the age of six I wanted to be a cook. At seven I wanted to be Napoleon. And my ambition has been growing steadily ever since.
    Salvador Dali
  •  I have a very strict gun control policy: if there’s a gun around, I want to be in control of it. Clint Eastwood
  • Being noticed can be a burden. Jesus got himself crucified because he got himself noticed. So I disappear a lot.
    Bob Dylan

This site measures the reading level of your blog.  I read a lot of posts that my only response is “huh?”  Having a hire reading level doesn’t mean that it’s more intelligent or better written.  It just means you’re using larger words and more complex sentence structures.  If you’re writing to be read, I’d keep you’re writing at a 8th to 12th grade level.

 Test your blogs reading level.
