"What I know is, is that if you do work that you love, and the work fulfills you, the rest will come." Oprah
Maybe it is lame to quote Oprah, but I'm desperatly hopeful
that she's right. This blog is really to try to deter the premature insanity that was beginning to emerge while I am learning web design, and following my passions. If you have a strong stomach, and good sense of humor, or are one of my friends or family (not optional for that group) please enjoy the ride.
The story starts with post #1, and continues to present day. I will keep you posted (pun intended), with the lasted chapter daily. Also, I will share my reviews of the books I escape with along the way.
Please, read, enjoy, comment, link, or message me. I'd love the feedback, it makes it seem less like I am just talking to myself.

The Social Media Maze

Digital Identity Mapping
Originally uploaded by fredcavazza
In the marketing push I have been diligently building up our social media networks. Today I planned on posting about the unexpected complexities of the task. As usual I went to Flick.com to find a relevant picture, and typed in Social Media as the key words.

So, now I am going to post, while in tears, that unless you are willing to make social media marketing your full time job, it is so very daunting. Even the images, like this one, still have sites missing. It is a dynamic, overwhelming, maze that can easily be overwhelming.

That is my sole purpose of my post today, not books, or reading, or Ijustfinished.com, but to tell all of you that are overwhelmed by social marketing/media you are not alone!

I have no excuses, instead I thought I would use the random excuse generator. I have a plenty of distractions. And, I can blame the boys (Silverfox and Silver Back) who are finishing the programming aspects of the site, but the bottom line is that I should have been blogging my setbacks and distractions. I mean, that is the point of blogging, right?

So, enjoy the excuse generator, and look for a better blog, I promise! I will blog, even the crying and whiny days.

Nice to know you are still reading...

I have not written in a while. It is true. I am shamefully embarrassed. I have been in transition in my life and with the site. So, to be honest I have thought that I don't have anything original to contribute. That is my whole excuse. Not a great one, I know, but I have felt like I keeping telling everyone to check back and see the new look and feel of the site, but it keeps being held up. So, I am frustrated. Plain and simple. I have this chronic problem of biting off more than a mouthful, and then expecting it to happen tomorrow. So rest assured that the new look and feel of the site is coming, and I am working hard on the site. I am also receiving awesome reviews everyday from our great reviewers. They will all be posting with the new look. There is a whole interface and page for reviews, as well as a profiled review on the homepage.
So, I will keep trying and hanging in there, and I hope you all will as well!
Thank you all so very much!
