@belllindsay @ginidietrich Gini, you can't have a SpinCon without Lindsay. Sorry, its a rule. Lindsay, make sure you pack your passport when you come, I hear you need that to cross the border now...

Some day when Gini organizes SpinCon we will meet, have a beer, and discuss our insecurities. :)

@Eleanor Pierce @biggreenpen  Read it, Eleanor! I read it and thought "This is what everyone's all worked up about?" I thought it was an empowering book that took a pretty good stab at gender lines and how not to hold yourself back. Sheryl Sandberg was also on The Colbert Report last night and did a pretty good job of explaining the "ban bossy" campaign. http://thecolbertreport.cc.com/guests/sheryl-sandberg

I don't know this looks suspiciously like homework... Though maybe homework that could be helpful. At one point I was using worksheets to track open projects, some of my own and some my boss's and it just became difficult to determine where the priority was so it ended up getting abandoned. I'm curious how you'll implement this within AD i.e. Will everyone have separate business goals that lead to corporate goals and, if so, how you prioritize the employee/corporate goals.

@Eleanor Pierce  Yes, never ask your parents for advice. I kid! I kid! The great thing about speaking with some who has more experience, or even "other" experience, than you do is the perspective it provides. Suddenly you can see things from two, three, twelve years down the road and then be able to adjust your goals/approach/STOP FREAKING OUT SO MUCH. That kind of thing.

PS I'm glad you "took back the night" Mary Anne!

And I just went and obsessively created Talkwalker alerts for our company, the variations in our name, our competitors, their name variations and our company principals. I feel a little bit stalker-ish now, but I'll definitely be doing an inventory and putting some plans in place. We generally haven't seen much online "chatter", but better to be prepared when/if it happens!

Well, I have nothing to share (I know. All I do is take, take, take!), but I love that Biz Stone piece. Especially the "Your goals should be bigger than your ego" statement and the concept of "no work is wasted work) there's always something you can learn to enhance your experiences.

And to Boomer and Francesca? Piffle. You're a couple of pudknockers.

I went to a coffee place a couple weeks ago that had no menu. None. Oh the pressure of wondering if I was going to get sneered at for ordering a latte! (It's a hard knocks life, right? Dealing with Hipster Pressure?)

And the prank it forward one is definitely sniffle-inducing, especially when she sees her first teacher. I imagine it took her a bit to realize it was all real!

Classic defense "It wasn't me!" Sure... That said, I very much appreciate that the sock pictures you post are of your feet. I actually couldn't tell you the last time I googled myself, but it is pretty much what I expected: a combo of some of my social media accounts with other "strangers" mixed in. I do get some tweets for a Kate Nolan that is an author, but that's about it. Nothing as "exciting" as porn!

Yay, it's Andy! Hiya, Andy! And yay for nerd clubs, too!

That is one painful, expensive, yet valuable, business lesson. I especially like this one: Just because you can solve a problem, doesn’t mean the problem is worth solving. You can spend so much time working around an issue to find out that, in the end, the fix was more trouble than the actual problem.

Also, I'm with you on the climate change sadface, if we all gave up 10 years for it, how much of the world could we save?

No comment.


That said... ;) I haven't read through all the comments yet, but my question is, will this actually increase Copyblogger's SEO and subscription rate? By essentially saying "in order to talk about us" you'll have to point links to us and share us with your readers and then... Colbert Bump is now the Copyblogger bump?


Of course, now I see that @chelpixie said it first. So, yeah, what she said!

This might be one of my favorite G&T posts yet! TWO puppies plus the CH Google one gets me every time. "Why do MY farts smell?" (If only Google were that omniscient... Wait, that'd be bad, I think.)

Also, I love the point where you can see Jimmy completely geeking out. When the Lion Sleeps was one of my favorite songs to play in marching band. FYI It's really hard not to "bop" to it when you're marching!

@LauraPetrolino  I wonder if that "single vision" is an effect of a really "together" communications strategy or just the UA culture overall. In other words, does the entire company believe in the UA vision and their communication approach reflects that or is it just a piece of their strategy? Either way, UA did an excellent job, but I'm always curious to see whether culture & communication are disparate pieces or a part of the whole.
