My History on Twitter

With an invitation to tell the world what you are doing with only 140 characters at your disposal, Twitter quietly launched on the web in March 2006.

Since that time, more than 500 million accounts have been created and over 200 million are active each and every day.

Yet, it's not infrequent that I hear people tell me that they don't use Twitter or that they don't "get it."

That's okay. It'

s not for everyone. And I can empathize with those who don't understand what it's all about.

Today marks my SIXTH YEAR of being on Twitter!

However, I can't say that I really got the hang of what Twitter was all about right away.


When it comes to blogging you have a lot of options. You can create a WordPress site and just start throwing content out there that...

My Epic Hike

Do you ever wake up with the idea that you're going to do something completely out of your comfort zone that day?

That's what happened to me today!

As part of my physical and emotional good health plan, I try to walk every day. I miss a day occasionally, but it's the exception and not the rule.

Typically I will walk for about one hour at a decent pace. Some days I'll push it to ninety (90) minutes

with my longest walks lasting two hours. Those are very rare.

Since the weather has been so nice, I've been exploring various hiking trails in the area. I found one called The Dirty Bismarck Loop with a trailhead in Superior.

According to the website, this is a 12.1 mile loop! Oy...

Are Facebook Ads a Waste of Money?

Facebook may be the big daddy of social media platforms, but it seems more and more challenging for businesses and brands to reach their intended audience on the site.

The controversy about Edgerank and the inability to reach those who have chosen to "like" your page led me to conduct my own Facebook advertising experiment.

How NOT to Use LinkedIn

I love LinkedIn. It's my favorite social networking site for business because it is so easy to connect with the right people.

In fact, I will connect with virtually anyone who sends me a connect request on LinkedIn. My prerequisites are few. There must be a photo with the profile and you must have at least 100 existing connections.

It's the only place where I will connect with complete strangers.

Once you are connected to someone, it is very easy to send them a message and explore if there is a fit for doing business together.

Unfortunately, this system is a breeding ground for all kinds of spam. And while it is not uncommon for me to receive direct solicitations from businesses, I am not offended by them. I usually just delete them.

The most offensive messages in my LinkedIn inbox are those that smell of deceit. I received one such message the other day.

Me Too

There's something I've been meaning to tell you. I hope you don't take it the wrong way because my intentions are pure.

But someone needs to tell you. Since I have your attention, I believe I am the right guy for the job.

Are you sitting down? It might be best if you were.

Are you ready? Here it goes...

You are screwed up.
