Trying to post to ee and blogger at the same time

So, I have decided I’d rather just blog in one spot. Really, I just got tired of managing multiple identities on the ‘net — too much work. I really like blogger and while I like ee (ok), it is so much easier to push blogger to well… just about anything. except….I’ve hit a stumbling block with labels. I can get the RSS for the label ...

Learning to manage my life> Reasons I don’t follow or friend you

I decided to update my reasons I unfollow/unfriend because 2010 is my year to simplify, focus, and stay true to my intentions (it’s a yoga thing…) If I unfollow (or unfan or unfriend or do not accept your request) it’s not that I like you any less (if I know you in person). If you are a colleague, it doesn’t mean that I respect you ...

The only problem with that product (which worked perfectly) is that support is really limited and no one (including me, who was volunteering) ...

Story is more imporant than brand (storytelling)

Interesting view of the impact of storytelling on marketing with interesting case studies/examples. At itโ€™s core, storytelling is an exercise done for the benefit of others. True, thereโ€™s a symbiotic relationship between the storyteller, the story, and the audience. This is a marked departure from typical marketing and advertising. http://treypennington.com/2010/09/06/story-is-more-important-than-the-brand/

my thoughts on the future of blogging?

Here is my mini-essay in response to the question, What is the future of blogging? We’ve already seen traditional blogging platforms (wordpress, expression engine, etc.) moving towards more robust functionality to the point of becoming content management systems. I think we will continue to see people moving to blogs AS their primary website, especially given the ease of use and the ability to easily embed ...
