Animation , With Stick-figure Animator.

Animation is the rapid display of a sequence of images of 2-D artwork or model positions in order to create an illusion of movement. It is an optical illusion of motion due to the phenomenon of persistence of vision. This could be anything from a flip book to a motion picture film
There is no single person who can be considered the "creator" of the art of animation, as there were several people doing several projects which could be considered various types of animation all around the same time. (Short, hand-drawn animation scenes could be presented with the Phenakistoscope, the Zoetrope, and other optical "toys" already in the early 1800s.)

Pivot
is downloadable freeware created as a way to make it easier to create stick-figure animations. The software allows the user to create stick figure animations easily and without any artistic skills. You can move the sections of the stick figure and create a chain of animation frames that can be previewed as you go. You can use more than one stick-figure in the animation, and even create your own stick figures using an easy to use visual editor that lets you assemble objects out of lines and circles. You can build your own stick figures and load your own backgrounds. In addition, you can optionally set animation size, speed and more. The animations can then be saved as animated gifs to be used on web pages.

A complete tutorial or guide from the msn group for pivot animator is available here

On the other hand, you don't want to start discussing details about your personal life on your business blog. The whole professional vs. personal ratio also has to be calculated with your topic and target audience in mind. If you're having second thoughts about writing something in your blog that might be crossing the line, it's best to err on the side of caution and leave it out.

Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea
shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I
had to tell someone!
