J Lee’s Soapbox

is my “official” blog, where I give you my two-cents’ worth on various topics.


Currently where I’m most active, Extended family, friends from church, and college classmates of mine are here.


Where To Find Me On The Web

My Twitter ID is “songsequencer.” I only tweet about music, mostly what I’m listening to at the moment.


My Amazon.com Home Page

I have written reviews for over 100 CDs and books at Amazon.


This has been my major blogging community since October 2004.  Most of my online-only friends are here. Now that my “official” blog is dead, this is the only place where I’m posting blog entries.


I rarely check in here.  Any connections I have here are for music.


This is a web community where people give their opinions on all kinds of consumer products. I have reviewed several big-ticket products here.


I set up an account here to report on travel experiences, but haven’t posted anything yet.


My main project here is that I’ve made several playlists of my favorite music videos.  I’ve only posted a few videos of my own at this point.


A music listening site. I rarely listen to music on such a site. I first joined iLike, but Last.fm has a better selection of music.


When this music site first connected with Facebook, I joined it, but they have limited music selection.


Yahoo has a lame attempt at social networking. Basically, my Delicious links and YouTube favorites also get posted here.


Find images on the web, collect them at Pinterest.  Get a taste of my interests and personality from a visual perspective.


A Ning social networking site open only to alumni of Anderson University.


I exist here only because I haven’t deleted my profile yet.  It was going to be a place for me to talk about books when I worked at Borders.  Then I quit.

I made a page here when Google+ started, thinking it might be a different way to do social networking.  Haven’t been able to figure out how to use it yet.
