I know this was a labor of love for you and you didn't sleep the week before, but it was really well done. I heard nothing but great things about the event, how it was run, and the caliber of content. Congrats!!

@Kelsey Vere Ha! Now you're probably cursing my name.
@bobledrew @ginidietrich @elmayuga This made me LOL: "I looked this up. 250 words per page is considered to be the standard accepted number of words per page. So, three standard pages are about 750 words. Of course if 750words.com hadn't been available, I would've totally found a way to prove that 249 words per page was the accepted standard."
@biggreenpen Oh boy. LOL!!

@Kelsey Vere I hope they work! That's odd they wouldn't work the first time around.

@biggreenpen There is half a person who reads your blog? Am I the one or the half?!?
@Jen Novotny PR Daily and Ragan are both good resources. Yes!

@elmayuga Huh! I do that every day, too, but had no idea it was a thing or had a name. Super, super cool. Thanks for sharing it! And let's make sure we high five in Boston.
@Eleanor Pierce No!

@bobledrew Oh, I have made nearly every infinite mistake.

@Eleanor Pierce And there are three more sections!
@Matt_Cerms I love SmartBrief. Super easy to roll though and find fodder for content.
@ffmcardoso You're very welcome! Let me know if you need other advice. I've made every mistake possible.

@Danny Brown @andreagoulet Sigh.
@Danny Brown Well...
I really, really love the weekend advice. Too often we forget that most people have a little more time to "play" on social media on the weekends. Super good advice!

@RobBiesenbach There is lots of evidence around the web. I can probably point you to a few (moderating comments, wearing jeans on stage, and some other topics). But we always agree on communications.

@leeodden I didn't know where it came from! I thought it was Kerry's phone. I'll update the credit.

@KerryGorgone I stalked you!
@elmayuga The funny thing about it is it didn't look all that scary. Maybe I'd change my mind if they were jumping out at me.

@Eleanor Pierce And he has great teeth!
@ClayMorgan Kelly thinks he's on drugs.
@Jen Novotny We have SO MUCH to talk about! I agree with all of your points. I watched an ESPN special on football players and where they are today. Most of them are broke because no one taught them how to manage their money or their family and friends mooched off them (or even stole from them). They think they have to buy the best cars and the biggest jewels because their teammates do and that's usually the end of them. So sad.

@biggreenpen Honest and direct totally got buried. Good find!
@Joshua Wilner/A Writer Writes There are lots of sponsors putting on serious pressure. It'll be interesting to see what happens.
@flt3 Disciplining a child?!? I missed that. Wow.
@biggreenpen I think I saw that somewhere, too! :-)

@JRHalloran I think it matters, from the perspective of gaining experiences you wouldn't otherwise have. I really believe you have to go away to college and leave your parent's nest and figure out who you are. You might be able to do that without college, but the experience is different. That said, we don't require a college degree to work here. I agree, from a business perspective, if you have an expertise we need, I don't care where you got it.
@Howie Goldfarb But this isn't about Walmart and their business practices. And this isn't about the NY Times piece. This is about a communications guy who lied on his resume and lost his job because of it.
@DwayneAlicie You seriously make me laugh!
5 days, 6 hours ago on The Squishy Grey Line of Ethics
@stephanhov Totally agree with you. It's kind of a bummer, but I'm certain they have protocol for a reason.
@Howie Goldfarb I loved the NY Times response. I thought it was brilliant communications.
@ClayMorgan It's kind of like the PR pros who update Wikipedia and then, when they are caught, say they didn't know the rules. I agree with you...if you're in this business, you have to know the rules.
@bdorman264 Laura and I were talking about this very thing last week. It seems like the good guy truly does finish last so often. We live in a world where liars and thieves win and that's really, really hard.
@annelizhannan @Howie Goldfarb He says it's because it was an arts degree and he didn't need that for his communications job. It could have been a case of senioritis. Who knows?
@DwayneAlicie This description made me laugh out loud! "Class dismissed, have a great weekend." LOL!!
I DID kick one of my hot potatoes in the butt. But I don't know that I would have 20 years ago. I think I would have known it wasn't right, but I didn't have the confidence back then to stand up for myself.
@Eleanor Pierce Oh I don't think it's forgivable to lie about it. At all. That's why I said the correct answer is to not say you graduated on the resume. This is like the Paula Deen issue. Forty years ago she made some racist remarks. They came back and bit her in the butt. Pretty badly. We have to think about these things constantly.
@RobBiesenbach @annelizhannan @belllindsay I have a friend who had an assistant for nearly 30 years. She discovered the woman was taking two or three dollars a week from the company till. Why? She needed a new fridge and couldn't afford to buy one. My friend had to fire her. But she said, "I don't understand. We worked together for 30 years. Why didn't she just come and ask me for some help?"

@belllindsay @RobBiesenbach You know what this reminds me of? Robert Irvine (Dinner Impossible) lied on his resume. He made up a bunch of stuff that just wasn't true, including his being the chef to the QUEEN OF ENGLAND. When The Food Network found out, they promptly fired him. Rightfully so...he outright lied. But the backlash from their viewers was so great, they rehired him. That was their point: OK, he lied. He was punished. But we really love his show.
