COMMENT ON THE WEBPAGE, PLEASE! CLICK THE IMAGE! Another big sale item on Amazon! I've had my eyes on this for years and this one was on sale for 27% off the normal price, so I snagged this up.

To Add a Past Job?


Updating my LinkedIn profile (click link on page) and decided to add my  past Workers' Compensation Claims Adjuster job. Why?

The Problem with Social Media is People


  Years ago (nine, to be exact) when I started blogging on a blogosphere, we, all the bloggers, were told to 'market' our posts on the different social media sites.

Social Media and the “Hip-Factor”


Ok, so maybe it's because i'm not hip or fashionable enough to understand social media.  There are a ton of articles, "Marketers", "Social Media Experts" and so on extolling the endless virtues and possibilities of social media. They post rules of engagement, do's-and-don'ts, What to say/write/post and what not to and so forth.  Seems an … Continue reading Social Media and the “Hip-Factor”
