I wanted to start a new column today that I have been wanting to try for a while now. Running a website is not an easy task when you are doing 99% of the posts most of the time. Some days its hard to come up with articles but there is always things that I find around the web through friends or stumble across myself. It could be videos, stories, pictures or other fun things. Here are some things that I have found over the past few days that are worth checking out.
