Friday SHoRTs: March 15
* What is your Personal Brand, and how is it changing, growing, evolving. Read more on Nameless Creek.
* There are new additions (to muddy the waters still further) in the Parkway Notecards Gallery. I’ll try to make a decision for WHICH FIVE CARDS no later than Monday morning. I’d be happy to hear your thoughts. Input so far has been helpful, if not abundant.
* Related matter: You’re a potential note card customer. You find two similar products of photographic cards, similar in every way except this: SET ONE is sealed; there may be a card somewhere that shows what’s in the package, but you can’t look at each of the five different views you might be paying for. SET TWO is also in a clear plastic envelope, but it is open at the top, and cards can be removed and easily reinserted. Which of these two sets of cards is most appealing to you? I ask this having obtained a heat sealer this week. To seal or not to seal (the tops)–THAT is the question. Thots?
* Thanks for feedback on the pdf document viewed at Scribd. Take a look at some of the recently-submitted files. Interesting. AND for the REAL FFF fans, here’s an early, early beginning to what might become the words-and-images book that might be called Field Notes from Nameless Creek. For best viewing, click the VIEW FULL SCREEN button to the right on the Scribd display page after clicking the link to the file. Better yet, download in pdf from the Scribd sidebar.
* I was delighted yesterday at the Roanoke Biz2biz meeting to get to meet some local bloggers whose names were familiar but I’d never had a chance to shake their hands. Among other first meetings, I was glad to get to tell Andrew Cohill, CEO of DesignNine about his role (as founder of the Blacksburg Electronic Village, bev.net) in bringing us back to Southwest Virginia with the idea to live isolated while connected to the larger world. I as also able to tell him about my experiences in self-publishing, as he is looking to move in that direction in the near future.
* Been wondering if your Money Market shares have tanked with the recent “readjustment”? Take a look at Google Finance (fairly new, at least to me) for some nice interactive graphs that are intuitive to operate and let you custom-view the period over which you’d like to track changes in your investments.
* Take a look at Just Another Day in Roanoke at roanoke-found.com. Blogger Keith Clinton spoke at the meeting yesterday, and is active in bringing the different segments of the Roanoke blogging community together and keeping important current events (political, news, social) before the smaller clusters of bloggers in each quadrant of the city.
