Diary of a distracted blogger

Saturday, January 12th, 2013

The first thing you’ll note about my blogroll is that until this post, my home page is like Grandma’s attic: full of stuff from long ago…

With so many social media opportunities, I’m the epitome of a kid in a candy store with a quarter in my pocket. So many choices, but which is the best one? Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn, Google+, MyLife. Oh yeah. And Facebook. Each offers a different flavor and connection sensation. Distractions abound.

My next few blog posts (who knows how many I’ll actually do?) will be dedicated to my exploration of the social networking candy store. Most readers are going to be far more savvy than I am and they will get a chuckle. Some people might gain a new idea or two. I invite your responses for the good of all.

Mostly, it just needs to be fun or it’s not worth doing!!

Oh, and check me out here: Sherry’s picture to End Polio Now. Couldn’t resist being part of the world’s largest commercial. Why am I pictured in front of a partially open door? Because polio still has it’s foot in it and we need to slam the door shut — NOW!

See what I mean? I’m like Dana Carvey’s portrayal of George Bush speaking about a dire national issue and in the middle saying, “Oh! Look at the kitty!”

Twittering?…follow this!

Terrance Barkan asks:
“Is ‘Social Media’ going to significantly change your organization?”
Take the short 12-question survey!
What do you think?

The results are provided in a free report to everyone that participates and the aggregated statistics will be shared publicly. Even if you are just thinking about social media use, the short 12 questions in the survey will stimulate some important thoughts on this hot topic.
