@Sharon Gilmour Glover Thanks, Girl Friend! Nope, I can't tell. Heck, it may even take me months to get it out; shoot. But, it's another business book fully from ideation and NO existing material. How about you? Got a book brewing?

What a great tip! Luckily, my book that just arrived yesterday in my hands, was done using Guy Kawasaki and Shawn Welch template. The publisher I used only had to do marginal fixes from word and PDF to InDesign. The layout is exactly as I had edited it into the template.
Oh, and since you asked...ahem...here's what/how to get my book! Writing with Verve on the Blogging Journey!

@dbvickery How did you sneak in here? Thanks! I would be delighted! Let me go hunt for that blogging guy! Once I return from New South Digital Marketing Conference, to which that @RandyBowden @bowden2bowden will be again present (I think all he does is attend conferences), then a GP will arrive on a silver platter.

And, I love that you stopped in to appreciate this, Sharon! I saw your post roll in today and was all set to come by when something got in the way.
What's more, I had no post for today. Upon reading this story, it called to me. Easy to write as it felt good reading it, too!
BTW, where is that guy Geoff Reiner these days? Have not seen hide nor hair since his The Happy Friday post. Is all well or did you guys part ways?

@Joshua Wilner/A Writer Writes Ah-hah! You caught that! So glad you were paying attention. I wonder if I should really share what that means or let more engaged readers ask.
Let's see if anyone else pops in to inquire and then I'll let the secret out...!
Sure, use my stuff and then I'll come find you. In the interim...v appreciate the drive by!

There is something so rich and rewarding in the communities we naturally grow around out blogs. In the beginning, you don't know there's a community there, but then the magic happens and the good people continue to read, comment, banter, and more. They even offer negation when it's needed, but fortunately for me, it's always been in a place with heart.
When a community becomes as large as this one, you're bound to get the idiot who has no idea who he's messing with. Yvette, I can say after having experienced it myself, you have arrived. You now will have a thicker skin and be prepared to address head on the naysayers and trolls who usually are lacking in courage to identify themselves.
We who stick out the neck will continue to grow professionally and succeed. Congratulations on having a team and a community to back you up and having Gini right there in your corner.

Nice to see you! Now that I've said it in about 4 places, I will now stop that, too!
Video, when done charmingly well, is enticing. Images that are poignant and make me think, I love. Words that share messages belong with both of these, too. I like words; but, words immediately take on a life of their own. When poorly written, we don't read, we look, listen and watch instead. So, there's your answer...no answer!

@equuisdancer22 The heat came back on yesterday and a bit this morning. Frost advisory last night in SW Ohio! Crazy weather.
@rdopping @New England Multimedia @Soulati | B2B Social Media Marketing So great to have you back around in these parts, Ralph! You were missed, and you sound wonderfully buoyant and fresh! The break did you good!
Thanks for coming over to share a thought!!
@lauraclick I need to do it! Shoot, I know it's going to be tough.

@AllieRambles Thanks so much for agreeing to write one of these wonderful posts! It's up to you what you'd like to share and which topic. I'm two weeks out right now, so you have a bit of time! The first post was something like January 17, perhaps, when I launched the series?
The coolest thing ever, ever, is that is the only one I have written -- the very first and here all these wonderful, wonderful people have jumped in to share a post every Friday. If I have to write one (gasp), that has to be the topic.
When you're ready, send the story, links any images and your Author info to me at jayme at soulati dot com. Thanks!

@AllieRambles @Sharon Gilmour Glover your comment...spot on...my kidlet is 11yo and oh boy, am I struggling with her judgment of me as a person. The embarrassment is killing her, and it just started!
I won't change myself b/c of my child, but it makes one think totally differently about "stuff."
@AllieRambles @Soulati | B2B Social Media Marketing Agree. In 2009 when I was so depressed about where I was living, i turned to Twitter. It entirely changed my life and saved me from who knows what. That is an honest to goodness true story.
@3HatsComm It's daunting, D!! None of us has time for all this stuff. You have to know that this list didn't happen over night!! It's been a work in progress, and these are just many of the things I've used instinctually to pimp a little here and there.
It does feel awkward putting them all in one list, too. I'm self-conscious enough to know that!! LOL, but you're the one who inspired me to do it!!

@timbo19731 Hey, Tim! Glad to have you here. I'm in HubSpot school; learning all about digital marketing and how to build that forsaken list. Yes, I curse it all the time b/c I never really cared 3 years ago nor did I understand as a PR person the importance of building an online business. So, here we are playing catch up/ketchup/catsup -- what do they call that in the U.K?
@Mark_Harai I agree with you fully, Friend. It's a circle of promotion, however, that also contributes to the juice behind the brand. We know each others' brands quite well; however, would a prospect looking to hire us know them?
That's why some of these little proof points above aid and abet that stream of positivity.
@Adam | Customer Experience Thanks, Adam! It's an experience with a range of emotions. Jazzed might be one of them!! Not sure yet!
