June has been a very good month for this blog in terms of Page Visits, the currency de jour of blogging. I’ve made the ChicagoNow Trifecta (front page of Tribune Online, front page of ChicagNow and ChicagoNow Manager’s Choice — which means being placed on the ChicagoNow Facebook Fan Page) a few times this June and I have the Readers of this blog to thank for that.

June has also been a busy month at my day job and a stressful one in my personal life. I have several good draft posts in the queue and I intend to get those out there as quickly as possible.

In the mean time, I thought it would be nice to take a step back and watch another fun video from CGP Grey.



Free Fun Friday is where I like to feature a video that has gone viral or is otherwise interesting. It started as a way to make a quick blog entry so that I wouldn’t go too long between post for my readers. Now it’s sort of evolved as a way to stretch my writing muscles and flex my creativity neural pathways.
