For New Insights and Images

storm-clouds-brewingAlso, there was a time I was using my Facebook to post a lot of personal or spiritual thoughts. That wasn’t too comfortable. Not because the response wasn’t good (it was) or that it was controversial (it wasn’t), but it didn’t fit.

Facebook is really rented space. While valuable for updating distanced friends and family of happenings, the numerous changes that happen to how Facebook presents items in my stream reminds me – it’s rented space. Free, but borrowed really.

And if Facebook ever shuts down, there goes my … everything I posted.

On this space,while it can go quiet – as it has in the past year – if it goes completely away, it’s by my own doing.  I can post non-business thoughts in full, without limitations, with plenty of experimentations, and share it on Facebook when I deem appropriate. Sharing it there still updates friends and family (if they see it in their stream), but it resides here – on my site.

There are often things and thoughts I want to record somewhere, but it’s not appropriate on either business site (ConverStations or SmallBizTracks). These things might include:

  • Cooking
  • Movies
  • Sports
  • Music
  • Books
  • Scripture and Spiritual
  • Politics (not a chance)
  • Family/FriendsFun stuff
  • Uncategorized Images and Insights.

For weeks I’ve been thinking about reinvigorating this site with thoughts stuck in my head and heart, aching to get out, if for no other reason but to make room for new images and insights.

Occasionally, this kind of site is great as a whiteboard for ideas, even business ideas. A personal site like this is great for that kind of writing. It’s like a driving range for writing and articulating thoughts (Now that’s a business blog post, hmm?)

The way I began this post was as iff the conversation here never took a pause. And on a site like this, it’s more appropriate than an apology for being away so long. I never really went away, I just wrote and spoke elsewhere. So the conversation continues…

Embed of SmallBizTracks BlogTalkRadio Test

This is a test run of the new SmallBizTracks show on BlogTalkRadio. I’m probably going to schedule these for Fridays, but that’s yet to be determined.

I tested removing the mic and talking straight into the phone about midway and there was a noticeable difference. The sound quality lessened when using the phone straight to my face. Using the mic will be better for both sound and hands free.

Until I Found One

Angela Sansone: HeroI never believed much in heroes
Except for the fictional kind
They’re great in books and movies
Never thought in real life I’d find

One who would be honest and true
Able to get serious and also have fun
Loving me in every failure and all falls
Loving others with an Audience of One

Knowing our union is of God above
It’s with great confidence and care
I keep plowed the road in front of you clean
So with others you can be shared

Know I love you
More than any previous day
If there’s anything you need or desire
We will find a way.

I love you, Angela!  Happy Anniversary :-)
