Good Afternoon Citizens of the world,
I have faced two setbacks in getting this blog out. Suffice to say that learning the ropes of blogging platforms and typing in general are working beside me right now(I lost my well written with plenty of time draft that I’d intended to post or maybe word-press is hiding it and while I work on finding it here’s this..). They aren’t with me, but they are not completely against me either. I have to work very soon so this will be brief, possibly I’ll add more after work but no promises. Going to boil it down to the essential parts. I read a lot. I take in a tremendous amount of usable information in a week. This gives me, just like anyone who does it a wide perspective on matters at hand. I, in my conversations with both Ben Watson VP of Marketing and Dave Olsen Vp of Community mentioned a magazine that I hold in the upper echelon of printed materials for the quality and diversity of it’s feature pieces. Monocle magazine. I read that and feel more connected with more of the world. Its a feeling that I look for in my reading materials. Discovery and refinement, which I hope will be a theme in all of these posts. You will discover me and time permitting I will refine your process of discovery. I love learning and want that to come across. Right now I am working on learning as much as I can about social media and marketing, how listening is the new talking and a bunch of other concepts that bear relevance on why we are here in the first place. I like and respect what you do there at Hootsuite and feel like I have a place there just waiting for me to dazzle, convince, plead, con, show and tell my way into it. I’ve got to go to work but I’m going to leave you with some books I’m into right now, and some websites I visited today.
