The best online greeting cards

My friend sent me a thoughtful card yesterday. Online, of course. This is perhaps the funniest collection of sarcastic, tongue-in-cheek, witty and all-out hilarious cards:

Hey, you’re still here? Cool!

It’s so good to see you! Last time you stopped by I was an undergraduate–now I’m an alumnus! Needless to say, the last few weeks have been busy. I just haven’t found the time to do any writing. But, I promise, I’m here, I’ve got things to say and appreciate you hanging around…

Does the internet scare you?

I love the internet. I’ve grown up with it. Even as a kid I remember being addicted to it. In fact, I sometimes forget how things got done before it was around. I can’t imagine what it was like to register for classes with a pencil and paper. It’s scary how much we rely on technology…

Summer Vacation Contest

I have a burning question and I want you all to help me find an answer:

College career posts

I know I haven’t been here very much lately. But, I have posted over at some of my favorite blogs. I wrote about my post-college career decision over at Employee Evolution. I also wrote at OkDork about how I think companies should recruit college grads. Check them out.

Brazen Careerist is a must-read

One of my favorite blogs to read is is called Brazen Careerist, by Penelope Trunk. She’s a syndicated career columnist that I’ve been following for a few months now. I point my friends to her articles, cite her ideas in conversation and now I’ve had a chance to read her new book: Brazen Careerist: The New Rules For Success.

Credit Balance Tip

If you’re like me, you enjoy spending all your money using a credit card (bonus miles, reward points, easier to track, etc.). But, when month-end comes and you spent $1,200 of your $1,800 limit it’s going to look really bad on your credit score (because you’re using a lot of credit). Since I’m paid twice a month I pay my bill twice a month. In other words, pay off your balance half-way through the month to keep your final balance low. Plus, it helps remind your checking account that you are indeed spending real money.

An Open Letter to Google

Dear Google,

Everyone is Watching

We may think everyone cares about our every little detail. Perhaps we were brought up with a higher level of self esteem and self importance. We’re raised to believe that we’re all winners and we’re all important (Thanks, Mom). But, do people really care about what we’re always doing?
