I will be posting my favorites of the week every Wednesday.
I have big dreams for my blog, and I need time to develop it so I decided to post one or two of my favorite responses to other friends called My Favorite Posts Of The Week! I think this will cause me to write quality posts and I can share with more friends!
I can only give a short commentary to what I’m responding to. This is just a little experiment so I’ll see how it goes.

1)My response to watching a Disney video on The Coolest Couple’s blog using the idea of reuse, repurpose, and repackage:
Hi Pat and Lorna,
Wow! That was so interesting and fun to watch. Of course I’m in the generation that “grew up” with Disney, and as I watched the video, I never put it together, but it’s almost as if I subconsciously knew that they were up to something! It’s brilliant and to be able to do it without most people noticing the obvious amazes me.
The idea of reuse, repurpose, and repackage is a great concept which I’ve used unintentionally without knowing I was doing it! So once something is beautifully created, why go back and either mess it up or ignore it forever? This is a great concept to keep in mind for blogging. I really appreciated your video, and yes I recognized every Disney movie presented. I know that sounds strange, but I’ll bet there are many kids out there who haven’t seen all of the Disney classics. Watching anything Disney always reminds me how fortunate I am to have grown up in an awesome generation. Only the baby boomers will get that one!
Here’s an example of reuse, repurpose, and repackage. I’m new to TSA, and I’ve just met Pat and Lorna last week. I visited their YouTube channel and came across Jimmy Kimmel Twitter War With Pat and Lorna. This “war” was 9 months ago, but it is new to me and so fun, why not launch it again! Jimmy talks about the ongoing Twitter battle with the supposed coolest couple online, Pat and Lorna. It definitely hit my funny bone! There is a video post on “The Coolest Couple” blog, or you can go to YouTube, and type in Pat and Lorna (The Coolest Couple) Update with Jimmy Kimmel. A comment from the video which I thought was great is, “The funniest thing is Jimmy saying, “Whenever I mention them they seem to get more followers” – That’s the power of a Tribe!” As of today, March, 16, 2011, Jimmy Kimmel has 73,886 followers and Pat and Lorna have 78,000 (give or take a few). Pat and Lorna wins…haha
Okay so it’s 9 months later and things have changed, but it’s all new to the people who didn’t see it, read it, or view it the first time!

Gavin did an awesome video tutorial on creating an email signature and this is what I made! Thanks Gavin!
I watched both videos and it took a little while to get it done, but when I followed, copied, pasted, Ctrl v’d, previewed etc., I hit the compose button in Gmail and voila! It worked! I noticed that once it’s done and Wise Stamp is in your browser, the right click commands will also Ctrl v the signature.
Since I’ve never used WiseStamp before, I want to note that when you are a new user and you hit the Social Icons Tab and/or the IM Icons Tab, there are four icon pics listed with a field for typing in the target URL. Be sure to hit the down arrow by each icon to open up a long list of services. At first I thought because I am using a free version of WiseStamp, that there is a limited list of services. This is not true! Hit the little down arrow and you will see what I mean! It’s an awesome little tool. Thanks so much Gavin. You’re the man!
