I and the Bird #61: As Seen on TV!
Cue theme music and…
Hi guys! Are you tired of searching randomly across the internet looking for something you want to read? Do you wish there was somewhere you could go to access all your favorite web-sights? And if you’re anything like me you hate typing in all those confusing letters to access your favorite bird net-blogs on the information superweb. How confusing!! Every site has its own combination of letters and symbols that indicates where it is! How can the average person with a job and 2.4 kids remember them all? Am I right?
You couldn’t be more right N8. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been looking for a good bird blog and I end up reading something about dying Nigerian princes and cheap prescription medicine.
Whoa, Suzanne Somers, where did you come from? Next time let me know, geez. But you’re sooo right, the interweb can be an intimidating place for the uninitiated. What are you supposed to do? Let those fat-cats in Washington tell you what you should look at? Type “bird blog” into Froggle and let it decide what you should see?
Look what I typed N8! hsadkjhfsdhkj. I can’t find anything! Can you help me?
