About

Have you ever wanted to “say” something but didn’t know where to write it at? Well that was my dilemma until today (January 24, 2011). I write lots of great information on Smallbiztechnology.com (in fact over 8,000 blog posts). But when I write to write about something “off topic” where do I write it.

Well this is that place.

You won’t find politics or religion here. But you also won’t find small business technology issues – that’ll always be on Smallbiztechnology.com

What you WILL find here is information on the economy, business, culture – we’ll explore this together.

Welcome.
