@Soulati | B2B Social Media Marketing @Mark_Harai I believe I do have something to bring. I will do my best and thankyou. Billy
@Mark_Harai Thanks Mark, You are one of my online standards to follow. So, I've a lot to live up to and emulate. The platform is coming... from an honest and truthful place that I live in. Billy

A list of sorts:
Record, via video, my life for my kids.
Using a by the decade format, put together a collage of the things that I did, didn't do and wish I had done.
The places, people and things that I saw, met and engaged in. Read them my poetry. Sing them my songs. Tell them my favorite jokes. Let them see the man their Father became.
Got into blue water in a 20ft Flicka sailboat: it has been around the world, is a trusty vessel and much admired by any real blue water sailor. I've harboured this wish for a long time. Maybe in my 60's I will get to do it. Count on it too!
Visit France again. Ride the trains and just look at the scenery. Sit still on a street corner all day and watch the people. Travel along the Canal Midi. Major waterway down the middle of the country that gives you a view not often seen. Visit the museum of the French Foreign Legion. Visit Alpe D'huez and be amazed at that climb for a cyclist.
Speaking only French and blending into a culture I am keenly associated with as an Irish Gaul.
Take Amtrack across the country with my wife and let her see the whole shebang from the comfort of a private cabin. All the while just talkin' and resting and reminiscing and thinking as the land rolls bye. Go from Chicago to Portland, down to L.A. tthen back to Chicago. Then down to Louisiana and across to Jacksonville Fla and up to New York. The home via Cleveland. Takes about a month to do right. That would be sweet.
I have lived in Africa, Europe and North America. so a lot of things are already done. I've been to many countries, sailed upon many waters, and visited and tasted many cultures. These things on this list are my biggies. I do have others, but they are for another day...
I'll post it in a little bit.
Ah! Now I see you. I hope you fill all the list with 'job done' and then some. Billy
I'm about to use an email letter once a week.
Here's my take.
I will post on my blog, content relevant to the newsletter/article. Monday - Thursday then Friday the email.
One theme per week. Examined via the blog from various slants then the email.
It is so obvious to me that email newsletters are not dead weight, but the current amount of them are crap!
As well as that, it's not the size of the list, won't hurt I know, but that quality of the signer upper.
I am experimenting here and will let you know what I find out.

thanks Gini. As I move into the actual game of building an audience and a profile to speak too, this information gives me a leg up.

Came here after seeing a tweet by Jayme.
Good questions, and I will bookmark them and read them later today.

I got it!
I have a been developing a circle, or wheel. It has six spokes and it takes you down into defining yourself in a simple phrase. My simple phrase is this? "The Small Business Compass a social tool for finding the customers who want the things you sell."

This is what I go online for.
the content here is succinct and very full. Wonderful way to express this idea. I am all over this and if you have a point of reference to learn more please do tell!

I'm new to social media dating by linking. I guess that's what it is? But Stan you have raised my awareness about a topic that I know little about.
I'd like to learn more about the whole linking thing. It is time.
As far as your post here today. This is what I look for when I go online. Not just content, or even intent but well thought out and reasonable substance like this.

I laugh, really laugh with you on this one. After about a year and some change online in this social media vortex of sorts I have seen this to be true.
I hear things too...
They also try to get free products from people who make and produce things for mentions and reviews?
They really don't make a dime worth talking about and they are desperate to do so!
I've seen your tweets at some of the places I go to read and learn.
Enjoyed this and the irony is not lost to me.

Ah! Nowhere to hide. Clearly clueless to the power of the social stream. Obviously driven by the suites who call themselves lawyers, isn't this why we don't like them? Curious about the effect all this will have too. Believe that the ships they build are abominations. If you want to really go to sea go small, leave the casino and disco behind. Get in touch with the water...Billy

Yes I do like your new house. Sweet. Glad to see you happy on you Birthday, and again best wishes to you. A good uncommon sense approach and result. A house to suit you and it does that and more.

Thanks! I found this via a tweet.
I know it's true, and I am experiencing how hard hard can be.
Still I am achieving my ambition, and I am known for defying anyone and everyone who tells me I can't do it.
So thanks for that little poke
