Lost and Found in Cyberspace

The following is one of the last tweets I received for 2010.

@LCPLweb #ff #Porter Co. Tweeps I hope to meet in person in 2011: @bulkmail4u (luv your blog), @mytnameischris (aka @ValpoLife) #nwindiana

For those of you that don’t know what a tweet is, it is a post on twitter.

If you don’t know what twitter is…….Click here. (Caution, it can be addictive)

I am @bulkmail4u.

@LCPLWEB will never know how much that meant to me unless I tell them.

Thanks @LCPLWEB, you made my day.

Thanks to anyone that stops by my blog for a short visit.  YOU ARE APPRECIATED.

There are literally millions of blogs floating around in cyberspace, it is a miracle to be found by anyone.

Have a wonder-filled day,

Random me: I was giving a slide show presentation to my 6th grade classmates the day JFK was assassinated.  What were you doing?

Disney Institute – How Twitter Made the Difference

Proudly displaying the BusinessWeek.com article

I was doing my early morning ritual of checking twitter, facebook, linkedin, etc, etc, etc.

While making my pit stop on twitter to @Disney Institute, I noticed their shout-out looking for people who had attended a Disney Institute workshop and wanted to talk about their experience.

Well I knew I loved to talk about my experience but was there anything a small business owner in Indiana had to say that was worth telling a Fortune 100 company?

I have to tell you, I am so glad I faced that little insecurity.

Before I knew it, I was having a laid-back  telephone interview with a delightful woman from the Disney Institute.  Just discussing what I learned and how I adapted it to my business.  Simple, sweet, and no guarantees that our conversation would be used.

Fast forward to Wednesday Dec 2, I was checking my emails as I all to often do, and there it was ” The Google Alert.”    There was something about this google alert that just looked different.  What could it be?  I was one “double-click” away from my 15 minutes of  BusinessWeek.com fame .

Lessons learned –  sign up for google alerts, face your insecurities and don’t underestimate the power of this thing called “social media”.

Twitter Matters

I jumped into the blog pool with both feet and found out I could barely swim.  Had to call on my twitter friends for a life line.  Thank you to @davewoodson who came to my rescue.

If you have not joined the twitter world, I suggest you consider it.  You do not have to spend a massive amount of time tweeting, but you can gain some very friendly, caring and intelligent new friends.

Follow me on twitter @bulkmail4u

Here 2 Help,
