I just could. not. get. through. this post in one read. I had to a) tweet you about my excitement over Bob having his own feature and b) tweet him (from the Optimism Light) because yes, it does take gumption when you are an inanimate object incapable of typing ... to put yourself out there in Twitterland. Can't wait to hear what Bob has to say in February. And, on a more serious note, loved this post - there is a lot of truth there. Kind of makes me with the social media position at a local company that makes gate openers had worked out for me. I mean THINK OF THE POSSIBILITIES I COULD UNLOCK!

@belllindsay @Digital_DRK @ginidietrich I see my supervisor having the same issue (although her name isn't in the business name).
@belllindsay @Digital_DRK @ginidietrich you chose a slow day for that estimate? :-)
@StickyBranding @ginidietrich oh crap "the pen doesn't sell" -- I may have to rebrand!

@Eleanor Pierce here's one of my local faves (insert HEAVY SARCASM FONT here).
@ginidietrich @biggreenpen as if that would be possible. Turns out it doesn't start until 1 so here I am! You couldn't get rid of me if you tried.
I am participating in a webinar at exactly the same time. It's about resiliency so clearly I need to be there given the year ahead LOL. I will try to pop in to the q&a!
I don't know if I understand half of this Howie (just being honest) but I do love this sentence: "I don’t format for SEO I write naturally because my readers are more important than Google to me." --- When I create a post and there is more yellow and red than green in my Yoast analysis, sometimes I (gasp!) let it stay that way. Anyway, I always learn from reading your posts!
5 days, 16 hours ago on Let’s Have a Truthful Conversation About Content Marketing
Hmmm.....I told you earlier how much I loved this post but couldn't figure out what to say. I'm back. A) thanks for summarizing the whole Kirby Delauter thing because I had seen the hashtag but hadn't fully processed it ... yikes, B) my main takeaway was a "what not to do" since I am the one trying to convince local journalists to talk about my non profit events so thanks for that, C) I would have to think one sin is not starting early enough (i.e., I need some publicity for my HUGE event that I want 1000 people to attend ... and it's two days from now can you fit it in?), and D) all the talk about true journalism just makes me sad about the continued blurry lines I see locally - the reporters turning into "content coaches" and being encouraged to buddy up with local brands .... it feels decidedly un-objective from my viewpoint.

I had ALMOST gotten over my sadness at not winning the Mercedes (or not having any of my nominees win it). Thanks so much for re-opening the wound LOL. I have been thinking I need to rework some of my old posts for LI. I know you have to link back to the original content. Do you have to rework them significantly or is the key the fact that you reference the original place of publication? Thanks!

3 weeks, 6 days ago on Leadership Skills and Being an Introvert
Definitely an introvert here. I think the challenge of the glut of posts about introversion is that it is so easy for many of them to be excuse-y (I know that's not really a word!) vs a resource to help people understand how to work most effectively with one another. I like the three highlights you pulled out, Lindsay. I think introverts have so many astute observations about the events and people around them; the challenge is surfacing those in a constructive way.
@KateNolan @Eleanor Pierce @biggreenpen I suggest this order: drink dispensation ---> talent competition vs the other way around. #NoOneWantsToHearMeSingSober
