31 Days of Ideas

play-button_yellow

One of the great ideas I’ve run across online is something called #VEDA. Twice each year Amy Schmittauer of SavvySexySocial.com takes ownership of an internet meme called #VEDA — which stands for Video Every Day in August (or April …hence the twice-each-year…). While Amy didn’t personally create this month-long challenge to motivate individuals to commit […]

Cause, Effect, Squeaky Wheels, and Newspapers

robot-writer

I recently read couple of articles about the Newspaper industry and the online industry which, while not overtly interconnected, mesh together so well to relate a story-behind-the-story, I can’t help but think of a pithy spin on old cliche that my grandmother one said to me: “The squeaky wheel may get the grease, but sometimes […]

Loud and Clear

A crying baby is loud, but not very clear.

Some people and brands (and politicians) are quite loud, but their message isn’t communicated with clarity.

Yesterday everyone got together to grill meat, drink beer, and launch glittery explosives into the sky; all in the name of Independence Day. But the real fireworks come EVERY day when you take advantage of your freedom to think independent thoughts and take independent actions. It’s be scary to be out there all alone. There […]

10 Personal Writing Tips

File Jun 30, 5 13 44 PM

One of my networking groups recently asked its members to share their best writing tips based on their personal experience, habits, and daily practice.

There are just a handful of podcasts that I listen to on a regular (daily or weekly) basis. The ones that get a little “ooh!” out of me when I see there is a new episode downloading to my favorite podcast app. They have great content, interesting guests with relatable stories to share, engaging hosts, and (perhaps most importantly) […]
