Build Connections & Community
Sometimes I wish that I could take you on a trip through my head. Sometimes I wish that I could transport you from wherever it is that you are reading this and drop you inside that cavernous space between my ears.
You’d sit down on the most comfortable chairs you have ever experienced and we’d share a moment in time. You’d see and feel the things that I see and feel. You’d understand me in a way that only a few will ever experience and we’d create a bond that would extend through time and space.
That my friends is an ineloquent but honest description of what my personal and business blogging philosophy is. I want to build connections with you. I want to share experiences with you. Here is where I try to create the magic and mystery that creates moments in time. Here is where I try to tug on your heart and make you cry, laugh, scream and or nod your head in agreement.
A blog is platform for telling stories and creating a method for you to step into the moments in time that I have experienced. This where I bob and weave my way through the forest of words and whisper things that I think will resonate with you.
The words and the stories come easily to me. There is a fire inside my belly that is forever burning and it drives me forward. I am compelled to create and sometimes my creations come across as more than a simple construct of letters. Sometimes you are touched by them.
Sometimes you share your stories with me and the others that frequent the places we live in cyberspace and together we create connections and build community. I know from experience that some of you are nodding your heads in agreement and others are rolling your eyes.
Some of you are pointing and clicking you way to “greener pastures” as fast as you can and I am ok with that. Even though I will cast a wide net I will not capture all of you. I cannot be all things to all people nor will I try. But I will share a number of things, thoughts and ideas.
I will share them because they offer glimpse and insight into who I am and what I am about. I’ll share them because in doing so some of you will find a friend and companion. This blog is many things and one of them is a journey through time and space.
You are invited to walk with me. I’ll ask you to join my Facebook Fan page because it is a way to stay abreast of what I am doing and because it helps me. It helps me bring new clients on board. It helps me convince them that there is a community that they want to be a part of.
From time to time I’ll talk to you about some of the companies that I work with and suggest that you learn more about them. But I’ll always disclose those relationships to you. I am compelled to write and I will do regardless of compensation but if I can earn a buck while doing this than I will do so.
And so we have reached the time and place where I share more with you. Some of this will give you more insight into me and some of the things that are important.

I am a voracious reader and read many different authors and genres.Â If you look on my bookshelves you might find Made To Stick or The Art of War. Some of my favorite authors include Demille, Tolkien, King, Martin and Gladwell.
And there my friends you have a very brief snapshot of me and some words about using connections to build community. Those of you who are intrigued and or curious are welcome to stay and join me on the journey.
So tell me a little bit about yourself. Who are you and why do you come here?
