She Looked Great

She looked great. Her hair, jet black, long and straight, it went down to the small of her back. She was tall and lean, with a body that had been sculpted over hours and hours at the gym. When she walked into a room, all eyes found their way to her. She could talk at length about shoes and celebrity gossip, but sadly, that was all.…

A Giddy Gander

Staring out across the frozen tundra that is Martelle in January, I began to apply layers of clothing to my frame, as protection against the bitterness. This, like many of my missives, is a complete exaggeration, it is actually around 25 degrees and not bitter at all. (Now, back to the story) Fearing certain death, or worse, disappointment, I took a pull of diet dew and was about to leave, when suddenly, much to my surprise, the familiar bong of an arriving email caught my… Continue

He was right!

Using social media to connect with people isn’t just about finding a new customer for your product or service, or it shouldn’t be. Two days ago I got a message from a gentleman on Recruitingblog who had read one of my blog posts and sent me a link to a site. Sounds pretty typical huh?

When I put it on I reveled in the warm toasty feeling. I decided to make a turkey bacon, egg and cheese sandwich.…

A picture is worth 1000...

If a picture is worth 1000 words, then what does a poorly lit, slightly blurry, badly cropped, taken with a camera phone image say about a networker? I think that in most cases it probably says, “I am new to social networking and am just trying to figure this out. It was the only one I had, and I was trying to build my profile while keeping the kids from shaving the cat with my husband’s electric razor” But I am an optimist and willing to give a person the benefit of the doubt.
