Making friends through social media.

Seth Godin - Poke the Box

Social media has opened new doors to new friends.

They are fellow bloggers.

We became friends because we took the time to comment on each others blogs.

Without commenting, it’s a one-way friendship.

Without commenting we remain just a blog hit statistic.

Saturday a surprise package arrived in the mail.

It was the newest book by Seth Godin in The Domino Project. (click here)

It came from Jeff Noel, the blog whisperer. (click here to read his 5-a-day blogs)

How did he know I would enjoy this book?

Because he reads my blogs and I read his.

Thank you Jeff Noel, I can’t wait to read this book of  “oxygen”.

Have a wonder-filled day,

Random me:  I started blogging to share my thoughts.  Who cares?


How Important are Statistics?

How important is the door?


I was inspired by Seth Godin’s blog today.

Is something important because you measure it, or is it measured because it’s important? (via Seth’s blog)

While statistics can be fun, should we be so concerned with numbers?

What’s more important….

… many people drive by our store, or how many people walk through the door?

… many people walk through the door, or how many people actually make a purchase?

….how many people read our blogs or how many people remember us when they need our services?

Maybe we should measure how much time we spend on statistics?

Have a wonder-filled day,

Random me:  I fell down the stairs the morning of my wedding and had bruises the size of Texas.  It was okay because nothing was broken and they were all covered by the dress.


2009 & 2010 Accomplishments

#YearInReview What did you ship in 2010? (inspired by Seth Godin’s blog today)

Your turn to post a list somewhere… You’ll probably be surprised at how much you accomplished last year. Go ahead and share with your friends, colleagues or the web… don’t be shy.


2010 Business

Can’t wait to start on my list for 2011.  What about  you?

Have a wonder-filled day,

Donna Flanagin

Random me:  I wrap my Christmas tree and store it in a closet completely decorated for next year. (lazy or brilliant?)
