What I learned from – Group Writing Project List

Written by George Manty  · May 15, 2007

Last week I entered the “What I learned from___” group writing project. My entry was What I learned from drinking Starbucks Coffee. Here is a complete list of the entries, along with my brief comments on each entry.

“… Blogging”, by Gayla McCord at Mom Gadget
Excellent entry by Gayla. It should be an especially good read for those who enjoyed my interview with her...

“… Having a Daughter”, by Marco Richter at FitForFreedom
Very touching post, that puts money in perspective.

“… Teen Girl Squad”, by Markk at My Opinions Are Important
I really enjoyed Markk’s post. Especially, what he learned from it. At the end he asks some really important questions, that we all need to ask ourselves:

How much of our lives have meaning? How much time do we spend on things that don’t matter?

“… the Mt. Pinatubo Eruption”, by Ronald Huerca at
WOW. A really touching story. I can’t imagine having gone through what Ronald went through, but we all have our owns challenges.

“… My Wife!”, by Rajaram Sethuraman at Thoughts of a Rambler
I thought this was a very funny post!

“… Taking Out the Garbage”, by Michael Chantrel at Mortgage Guide 101 Blog
So true. Very good tip.

“… Norm”, by Joe Raasch at The Happy Burro
Very nice post that reminds us to stop and smell the roses.

“… A Light Switch”, by Robert Hruzek at Middle Zone Musings
Nice story about a light switch, and being made for eachother, by Robert (the creator of the contest).

“… my mentors”, by Karin H. at The Kiss Business Too
Good tips from Karin’s mentors.

“… Procrastinating”, by Yvonne Russell at Grow Your Writing Business
This one really hit home for me. It’s not just procrastination that can be a problem for me, it’s putting the little things first.

“… a Squirrel”, by G.L. Hoffman at What Would Dad Say
Great lesson from a child’s mouth.

“… a Weight Problem”, by Monique Attinger at Insurance Guide 101
This entry had some really good information about weightloss and insurance.

“… RUMMAGING!” by William Tully at LOGICal eMOTIONs (warning contains colorful language)
This post offered a great tip for all of us:

Shoot for the stars because at least you have the option of landing on the moon.

“… Drugs”, by Sam Brougher at Forest Azuaran
I think that the following two word sentence from Sam’s post does a good job of summing up his post – “Drugs suck”.

“… a Mesquite Tree”, by Mike DeWitt at Spooky Action
Interesting post that comes up with some personal development lessons from a Mesquite Tree.

I believe that was all of them! It was a fun writing project. Which entries were your favorites?

    Pleased you enjoyed my entry on What I learned from procrastinating. ūüôā

    The diversity of the entries made it all the more interesting to be involved in the project.

    “… RUMMAGING!” by William Tully at LOGICal eMOTIONs
    (warning contains colorful language)

    It contains a title of a book which may be offensive to 3rd graders, yet is carried by all MAJOR online and offline book resellers. Not that I’m saying book resellers have the moral high-ground, what I’m saying is that the blog isn’t for 3rd graders. To claim that my post ‘contains colourful language’ slaps a label onto my blog and my post implying that it is filled with expletives, where in fact, it contains one colourful word (debatable) in a BOOK TITLE that rhymes with PullShip.

    I do appreciate the inclusion into your blog’s content; I simply hate labels.

    The entries were very diverse. I look forward to more of these in the future.

    Didn’t mean to offend, but whenever I post links to articles that I notice any language I try to point it out. I don’t always do the best job with that. I will think about removing the label, but it’s just how I run my blog. It was a good post though…

    I do the same thing with some of my close friend’s websites or blogs, when I feel like it’s appropriate.

    George, thanks for participating! It was a great effort by many folks, and we had a great time meeting new people, too.

    Glad you liked my post. I think you’re the first respondent to change the order of the entries in your summary list!

    I also look forward to future group writing projects from the Blue Shark.

    I changed the order for several reasons, including the duplicate content filter.
