Thanks for the comment Neicolec. Yes, well there are exceptions to the rule. Also, I think you can still be successful even if one participates in inefficient meetings. My experience over 20 years in corporate is spot on with video. A lot of nonsense, wasted time, and it's just forced because most managers think it's must because that's what they were told or read somewhere. When I was managing a group of 10, I would have one-one's consistently and keep team meetings short and sweet, with a lot of energy. That worked for me and my group. Definitely saw many that loved meetings. Where is he, meeting. Where is she, meeting. There are definitely a group of professionally trained meeting experts.

Hi Kimberly - It will be interesting to see how this plays out. The whole nation is high, but taxes down, and states flourish. I'm a bit removed from the "Pot" scene, so have no idea about demands. As you mentioned, looks like Feds will look the other way. So this could grow quickly across the nation if WA and CO rake in the dollars.

Reddit can be great when you hit that first page, I'm talking 40K views great. However they are the toughest by far with ghost banning. Even lightly promoting your own stuff will land off the networks. It's not jail (as in Twitter jail, which is temporary), you're gone and will need open a new account. It's too control spamming, but they take it to another level. That's what a friend told me anyway. :)

@Clint Butler Hi Clint. Well, TweetAdder is kind of Black Hat in this world. Twitter had sued TweetAdder. TweetAdder works outside the Twitter API, and I've seen people accounts taken down that have used TweetAdder. Anyway, yes unless you're a celebrity or well know in your niche Twitter can be a bit overrated.
@JohnAguiar Hi John Paul - Yes, they are becoming more and more corporate each day. No longer the idea that evolved from a dorm room or garage. It's the kiss of death. Let's see how many rules we can come up until no flexibility remains. I agree, decisions like this just chip away at the foundation of the network. If they keep on this path they'll continue to lose users and truly hurt themselves. We'll see...
@leaderswest Hi Jim, thanks for the comment. Ugh, one can spend all day there with this exercise now if they choose. Twitter is creating inefficiency with this, no other way to say it...
@TheTweepleQueen There's nothing good about the change. On a macro level it means that less people will get followed, because most will not be able to keep up with the manual effort.
@Ruskyle Howser Thanks Ruskyle, was correcting as you blessed us with your comment...

@ALifeOfLight I like your avatar. ;) - I think most have dropped the ball at some time or another with replies, while others have no interest in being involved in replying. Yes, it's always an opportunity to make a connection. Basically, not replying or acknowledging is on the rude side. Every blogger should put forth their best effort to reply.

@patricksplace Hi Patrick - I think if you spell out that you don't accept guest posts that is a different story. I don't see that often, but receiving requests when you spell out that you don't would be aggravating.
@wellnized Thanks Lesly for stopping by and commenting. I agree with you, I'm a bigger fan of contributor as well. Thanks for the kind words.
@kennethns If I was starting a niche site today I would be on the warpath to find an EMD for that particular niche. Now the content behind that domain had to be relative with some quality. Google doesn't want the sites with low quality to benefit from an EMD, and they won't anymore. Thanks for the question/comment.
