Going Back to the Beginning

July 20, 2016

“If I could turn back time…” “Yes, there were times, I’m sure you knew/When I bit off more than I could chew…” “Oh the movie never ends/it goes on and on and on and on…” Yes, I just quoted some song lyrics. There’s nothing like meeting a new colleague who’s already checked out your blog. […]

Seven Years…

March 13, 2015

LinkedIn reminded me that it’s been seven years since I started this little blog. What’s crazy is that I’m not even focused on writing about tips, tricks, and perspectives — I’m focused on applying it. But with a little reminder comes a nudge to revisit the blog that started it all and reflect. Yep, this is […]

Do I No Longer Need Comments?

July 6, 2011

I might be done with comments. I know what you’re thinking…mostly that I must be crazy. How can a blogger be done with comments? Probably because they’re just not enough anymore. Let me walk you through my logic: Back when I got started blogging, I was desperate for comments. I wanted to know that more […]

Talking a Date into a Business Meeting

May 31, 2011

Thanks to Netflix, I have on-demand access to a lot of shows I love. Currently, I’m on a Numb3rs bent. One of the early episodes has the character Charlie finally go out on date with his long-term crush Amita.

There is a Darwin effect to blogging, except it’s not as simple as, “Only the strong survive.” As writers, we believe if the message is clear and distributed properly, the strength of the writing should help it permeate into the blogosphere. However, the survivors must contribute. Over at the Journal of Consumer Research, editor Dr. Laura […]

Anonymity isn’t an Invitation to be Rude

March 30, 2011

This post is available over at Forbes blogs: Social media has brought a sense of “realness” to the fakeness of online identities. People used to hide behind anonymity, and then we declared (with Mark Zuckerberg leading the way) that you couldn’t be taken seriously if you were hiding behind avatars and names like TechKitty5837. We embraced […]

Being Born to Write

January 31, 2011

Back when I was in undergrad, I had wanted to be a forensic psychologist. I admit it: the power of CSI had gotten to me. Unfortunately, I was growing anxious about a future which included compartmentalizing relationships, setting up boundaries, and potentially isolating myself (for safety reasons). It was winter break during my junior year, […]

Public Image and What Others Really See

January 11, 2011

On NBC’s Today, Meredith Vieira interviewed stars and the writer of The Social Network as part of the movie’s store release today. When asked about Mark Zuckerburg’s reaction to the motivation being inaccurate, writer  Aaron Sorkin said, “If a movie absolutely had to be made, I would want it told only from my point of […]

Stop and Think: Reaction to the Shirley Sherrod Debacle

July 21, 2010

Like many others this morning, I am writing a reaction to the giant debacle that arose because no one stopped to think. Shirley Sherrod was removed from her position with the Department of Agriculture because of a video that had comments taken out of context. Somehow, in all the uproar about racism yesterday, it took […]
