Okay, I have to resort to the InstaCarny format again this week. No time to read everything again. I do apologize. It is my intention to find time for this blog some time in the near future. The new job is keeping me busy as is getting settled in Atlanta. The good news is that everyone makes it into the Carnival of the Vanities again this week and there were a lot more entries than we’ve had in previous weeks. The bad news is that the Blog Carnival “instant” code is a nightmare and it doesn’t help that my editing PC went down with a bad hard drive last week. This means I’m on my laptop and the only editing software I have available to me are NotePad and MS Word. Don’t even get me started on how badly Word screws up a simple HTML export. For those of you who think I spent no time on this Carnival, please know I spent at least half an hour cleaning up the freaking code problems.
I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving! I’m off for Boston for the holiday! Another Carny appears in this space next week. Enjoy the Carnival of the Vanities.

Swift’s Complete Amazon Reviews posted at Jon Swift, saying, “Considering all the attention my reviews have brought to the money-losing Internet bookseller and all the inspiration they have given people by showing that you don’t necessarily have to read books to review them, you would think that Amazon would be more appreciative of my work.”

Jack Yoest presents The Best Company Structure in Four Easy Steps posted at Reasoned Audacity, saying, “Our
business schools teach that structure follows strategy. And this big stuff is important to know. But what Your Business Blogger most often sees is where the boss misses the basic questions — the easy stuff. Such as, What is the business owner’s most common company-structure challenge? In our egalitarian new-age of Aquarius where we are all equal to each other and the boss considers the individual input of each of her employees to be the equal of her own or anybody else. After all, we are all family here. This, of course, is nonsense.”

Rocket presents Flay posted at The Rocketman’s Change For A Dollar, saying, “‘Flay’ began as a vent for my frustration at a personal chronic ailment, but it grew into a larger bit of fiction. Completely out of character and beyond the scope of my usual genres, it is dark, twisted, and psychedellic – and in my opinion, one of the best pieces I’ve written since I branched out from print and began posting online. Thank you for allowing the opportunity to share it here.”
