I’m a writer, an observer of life and an analyzer of people’s behavior. Most of the time the analysis finds it’s way into the writing. That’s just how my brain tends to work. This blog will be focused on social media- not on all of the cool, gee-whiz shiny toys of the moment, but on the practical application of social media in my daily life and work. Sometimes I will give a straight-from-the- gut opinion on what I see happening on the social media highway and its effect on life. This is where I become as authentic and transparent as it gets- where I tell it like it needs to be told. Don’t like this approach? Then check me out on my traditional business blog on my company web-site here.
