Poems Pertinent To Leaving Linkedin: "Limbo Losses" from How to Survive the Loss of a Love

No, I wasn't Linkedin's lover - and Linkedin wasn't mine. But, when someone asked me whether I'd started having withdrawal symptoms from not going to for the past couple of days, it reminded me of this wonderful little book called "How To Survive The Loss Of A Love" (by Peter McWilliams, Harold H. Bloomfield, and Melba Colgrove

Here's an excerpt to see if you can relate:

Always an Issue: Design on a Budget!

This decision to offer one of the most widely used advertising tools at a deep discount is really an experiment for me. I believe in the price schematics of designers, I fall somewhere in the middle with the extremes being extremely inexpensive and very expensive. I've noticed that while the need for this particular service is at a high, the budgets of many people establishing/running small businesses are tight right now. So, the experiment is whether or not I will have more orders for banners… Continue

Why Would Linkedin Take Down A Motivational Networking Group?

From "Why Keep Strong!"

I open this new iteration of my blog with this simple, straightforward question: "Why would Linkedin Corporation take down a motivational networking group?"

The group was called "Keep STRONG!"

To help you understand the character of the group which Linkedin suspended, here is its original description:

"It is NOT your job to help those who seek to drag you down, to weaken you.… Continue

Another L.I.O.N.: Linkedin’s Ignorance Of Networking

Can you do a brief mental experiment with me, please?

Take just a moment on this: Try to visualize going through the course of your networking year WITHOUT having to encourage someone in your network or without someone in your network having to encourage you.

Just imagine that for a moment. Just imagine a networking year without the concept of encouragement entering into it.

If you have a large network of, let’s say, 500+ people, I think it would be virtually… Continue

When I say..."I am a Christian" I'm not shouting "I'm clean living," I'm whispering" I was lost... I'm found and forgiven"

When I say... "I'm a Christian" I don't speak of this with pride. I'm confessing that I stumble often and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say... "I'm a Christian" I'm not trying to be strong. I'm professing that I am weak and need His strength to carry on.

When I say... "I'm a Christian" I'm not bragging of success.… Continue

Problems with LinkedIn search capabilities

Today I called and cancelled my LinkedIn Business Professional membership and asked for a refund. It was promptly transacted and the charge was refunded to my credit card.

As a loyal fan and advocate of LinkedIn, I'm so frustrated I can barely stand it. I use LI as a tool to find excellent candidates and network with a host of wonderful people. My network has grown quickly over the last few months and I'm up to right around 8,500 first level connections. I also belong to a ridiculous… Continue
