I've checked in at a prison. Who can resist when you are driving past it on the interstate!
I have to believe that you would, too, if given the opportunity.

@KenMueller I'll write it if you'll come move and unpack boxes. Deal?

@KenMueller It's because I'm not cool enough. I understand. I won't hold it against you.
@KenMueller Sure thing! Which I think you NEED to do since you didn't take my question for the 5 Things Friday...
This may be one of my most favorite posts of yours! Way to work it, Mueller!
This is one of the sentiments I included in a presentation I gave to high school juniors and seniors last week. How every social media update is ultimately a reflection of you and affects your brand, and that there is often a lot of tone and context lost online vs real life because they are simply words on a screen.

@KenMueller No. I'll send them to you. Kate's was a lot of long labor (24 hours of 5 minute contractions, and getting turned away from the hospital the first time we went), but Maddie's was more - um - exciting. Not everyone really wants to read that.

@KenMuellerI've written about both birth stories, so if you really are interested, I'll send you links.
@Joshua Wilner/A Writer Writes Yep! That sounds pretty much exactly right! Ha! :-)
Ya know, if Becky was retelling any of these stories, they would be waaaaaay longer. A difference between women and men...we'd be so detailed, giving a play by play of each child's birth story. :-)
@KenMueller If you gave G+ even half the attention you do to FB, you'd feel much differently. FB is your one and only.

@KenMueller The goal of G+ is to make search more personalized. And the more people who are on it, the more that goal is achieved.
@KenMueller @LizJostes No! Communities for Walking Dead is not what I'm talking about. You can't easily find topical groups on FB, but you can easily find everything on G+. I don't know when I've read anything from Google saying the goal of G+ is to be a social network.You don't want G+ to be successful because you think Facebook is it. The people who truly "get" G+ are those who use it for niche/topical stuff. And you can't deny its effect on search.
@KenMueller You don't spend time on G+! And you think Facebook is the bee's knees. G+ is delightfully NOT Facebook, and you need to see it for what it is and how its uses differ greatly to appreciate it. As Kristin says, "Facebook is where I connect with my family and friends, and G+ is where I go to talk with other people who love Arrested Development as much as I do."G+ is perfect to find people who are talking about what you talk about and care about the exact topics you care about. Facebook is not set up to be like that.
I disagree about G+ searching for its identity. But I'm sure you'd guess that. :-)
And I thought I was crazy to need to edit a post on page vs in the Compose view. For whatever reason, my editing efforts are much more effective when done in the 'preview' view. I don't know what it is about reading it in the editor that trips me up so much. Great list!
