@lauraclick I leave the old one, mainly because they might have inbound links going there. Again, no easy answer.

@lauraclick I have republished a few times, but I think it's best to change it somehow. The whole duplicate content thing is worrisome. When I do, I tell people up front when it was previously published, and then at least try to update or change some stuff. It's tricky, that's for sure.

@fourtopper Yes, but there is a long way to go. I think the medium businesses are driving this, and the small businesses are far behind, especially the smaller, local ones.

@JenPhillipsApril I hear all the same things on a daily basis. We still have a very long way to go, that's for sure.

@Ronald Dorhout Mees Very important. We can use the data to make decisions but need to be flexible.

@dbvickery Just one more example of how people like me often take for granted that a "normal" family consists of one dad and one mom, and also how wrong it is to think that we all have the ideal experience.

@Brian Shope @Danny Brown @StaceyHood Thanks for stopping by, Brian, and glad you enjoyed the words of my friends.
@Danny Brown I think we only get lost if we let ourselves get lost. We need to grab on to the right connections and cultivate those relationships.
@StaceyHood it may sound trite, but it goes back to the George Santayana quote: "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” Too often we try to brush it under the carpet, and end up making the same mistakes. You have learned your father's history, both the good and the bad, and have opted to move forward in a different way. That's key.

@StaceyHood No problem, and thank you for sharing your story and allowing me to share it. It's a fascinating story which goes to show how complex we really are. On social media we tend to see only the surface of people, based on what they determine they will share with us. But behind the surface there are so many layers and facets to all of our stories. I love your take on how you have chosen to remember your father.
@annelizhannan oh my pets AND kids are in charge. I'm low man on the totem pole. But yes, I saw much the same thing yesterday. It gave me real insight into a lot of my friends, and I learned a lot about them. I like when that happens.
@SteveODonnell Yeah, I think those stories surface at just about every college. and always from "last year".

@girlseeksplace Great, glad you were inspired!
@MarkJMuellerJr I remember the first time your dad drove me by there at night. Creepy. Glad I know the real story behind that place though.
@biggreenpen Thanks! I bet that most colleges have some sort of ghost story or other legend that gets passed down and altered over the years. I'd love to research that story to see if there is any truth to it, even if it's only an ounce of truth.

@Shonali We talk a lot about disruptions and disruptive technology, and that happens to us in life as well as business. We can roll over and give up, or make the proper adjustments to stay relevant. In our line of work, those disruptions happen almost daily.
