Where I reveal how little I know about social media strategy

As I begin to use Google Plus more and more, I become increasingly disappointed with the lack of content provided by sources and companies I would really like to “connect” with. I have taken some initiative in reaching out to them to ask why their posts are so rare/non-existant. One of the most common answers:Continue reading “Where I reveal how little I know about social media strategy”

The things I didn’t weet this week (6/17-6/23)

And it’s a good thing I didn’t. Though, it’s not to say that the things that were published to my Twitter stream were actually worth posting. I mean, come on. Consider this the equivalent of the Friday evening newscast. Really, nothing of importance. Just clipped my toenails. Don’t you love Twitter? Eating a gummy bearContinue reading “The things I didn’t weet this week (6/17-6/23)”

File under “Did I really say that?”

And then sub file under “Who am I?” I spoke these exact words in department meeting, this week: “It’s a tool that we’re not using like it can be used. If we only use a hammer to occasionally hang a picture, that would be fine. But, we can use that same hammer to build something. It can be used forContinue reading “File under “Did I really say that?””

Checking in in lieu of a Sunday Musing… or is this actually a Sunday Musing?

Pesky crow has been in my face, lately. Well, I let it distract me. Well, that’s not all true. Planning to get back on the write/blog track soon. I have a couple posts working through my drafts folder. Not that anyone is actually waiting on the edge of their seat to read it. I mean,Continue reading “Checking in in lieu of a Sunday Musing… or is this actually a Sunday Musing?”

what happens after you press the shutter

This morning, I read photographer Joe McNally’s thoughts on the 40th anniversary of the “Napalm Girl” photograph, taken by Nick Ut. “That photo made on that horrible day was made in less than a second. Yet a lifetime spun on its power. With so many photographs being taken everywhere, easily, and thoughtlessly, it’s easy toContinue reading “what happens after you press the shutter”

time to drive yourself

Bored at work? Hate your job? Are you taking initiative to make it better? Are you challenging yourself, I mean, truly challenging yourself, to improve and grow personally?   If so, and still bored and unsatisfied, are you in the right profession?   If not, get out of there. Make a change! Don’t hold back others becauseContinue reading “time to drive yourself”

The things I didn’t tweet this week (5/20-5/26)

And it’s a good thing I didn’t. Though, it’s not to say that the things that were published to my Twitter stream were actually worth posting. I mean, come on.   Consider this the equivalent of the Friday evening newscast. Really, nothing of importance.   “I don’t know about you, but I could really go for someContinue reading “The things I didn’t tweet this week (5/20-5/26)”

Objects aren’t important. People are.

Yesterday we were involved in a minor car accident.   After a long, very good, day at work we headed home. It happened as we traveled north on I-405, passing through Culver City. We were in the carpool lane. Traffic was moving slowly and the car behind us (in the carpool lane) moved to changeContinue reading “Objects aren’t important. People are.”

As political as you’ll ever see me get

Ugh, politics.   Ugh, politicians.   Ugh, rhetoric.   Really, unless you have taken any action to correct the things that you are unhappy about (politically), your complaints are invalid. The easiest, most effective way to take action is by voting. If you don’t vote, but still complain about our government, I have no useContinue reading “As political as you’ll ever see me get”

The things I didn’t tweet this week (5/6-5/12)

And it’s a good thing I didn’t. Though, it’s not to say that the things that were published to my Twitter stream were actually worth posting. I mean, come on.   Consider this the equivalent of the Friday evening newscast. Really, nothing of importance. Harley stopped next to me playing Taylor Swift on his radio. Lesson fromContinue reading “The things I didn’t tweet this week (5/6-5/12)”
