Hey there! Yeah, Iâ€™m still around. Iâ€™ve had a heck of a down week this past week. It started out just fine, got back from a great little weekend getaway with the family and started the week just fine. Got out on Tuesday and voted, but thatâ€™s about where it ended.
Iâ€™d spent the rest of the week trying to work through one heck of a nasty cold. Finally here on Sunday, thatâ€™s really lifting. I usually donâ€™t get the common stuff that floats around, including the flu â€“ but this one got me real good. Oh well, itâ€™s about done and Iâ€™ll be getting back to business this coming week.
Whatâ€™s been fun though was meeting more great people involved in social media here in Minneapolis & St. Paul and helping them get connected and able to meet each other. I wish them well as they work on the ideas and projects they create together â€“ fun stuff.
Iâ€™ve been wondering about this recent meme on the death of blogging. What rubbish. A great way to drive traffic though â€“ which is what those kinds of memes are for anyway. Though I will admit that all the social sites have diluted the waters of the blogosphere and have pulled many bloggers off their game and kept them from focusing on their goals. I know, Iâ€™ve let that happen here as well.
Ok, that and work â€“ having to keep up with a full-time consulting gig at a fortune 100 company can really take up a significant portion of your time. However, thatâ€™s all good, should be getting better too I would hope.
Anyway, I just wanted to check with folks and let you know Iâ€™m around, a quiet mainly because of time constraints, but still here. Drop a line if youâ€™d like and let me know what youâ€™re up to.
