    I’m Buying Rumors of Water. Today.

    I’m buying Rumors of Water, the latest book by L. L. Barkat. Today. Why? Two Three Reasons. In non-technical terms, there’s some weird book-buying algorithm thingee that promotes books to the top of best seller lists if they sell a bunch of books on launch day. Today is that day. Because L. L. is a friend, I’d [...]

    A Day for Enchantment

    You know what it’s like when you’ve been working on a project for what seems like a really long time and then you just have to wait for the launch day? Well, I’m happy to report that today’s a day for Enchantment! Last month, I had the privilege of interviewing Guy Kawasaki for a post [...]

    Digesting SobCon

    I’ve spent the last few days at SobCon (Successful Outstanding Bloggers Convention/conference) and now I have to digest it all. I took pages and pages of notes (22 to be exact) from sessions presented by some of the brightest marketing/social media folks around. Anywhere. My brain is saturated.

    My Three Words for 2009

    SlideShare Made Me Happy

    A couple of weeks ago, I wrote this post about SlideShare being a great career tool. Well, today, they have moved up in my book, from beyond a great career tool, to a business that gets it. Here’s what I mean. Today’s been rough. I’ve had to eat crow all morning at home because of [...]

    My Friday Follow Surprise

    Last Friday was a busy day with a fun surprise that caught me completely off guard! The surprise came as a random act of kindness by a Twitter friend, Dee Stewart. Unbeknownst to me, Dee waged a Twitter campaign to help me reach 2000 followers. A meeting in Charlottesville had me off the grid for [...]

    Patients and Parents Love Orthodontic Arts

    Once again I’ve made the trek to Orthodontic Arts with two of our four children. It’s not one of those appointments that I dread. There’s free wifi so I am able to get a little work done. And tweet a little too. Look what I found: A simple little tweet about being here, and passing [...]
