A Great Tool Named Twitter

You should consider (if you're not already doing it) writing on Twitter.  You can follow me there as well under the name epicliving.

I publish my Twitter posts on this blog (see the side columns), but your life is what Twitter needs now.  The cool part is Twitter only gives you 140 words to tell readers what you're doing, so you won't get into a time drain. 

Check it out.

Waterfalls and Hideaways

Got a chance to getaway last week to a place I’d never been before.  It’s an area called Hocking Hills (southeastern Ohio).  I new it was a great trip, because when I got back to our city everything looked different.  I’m beginning to believe that a getaway/hideaway is measured by how the familiar appears upon returning.  Photos are below.







Twitter: Now I Get It

I signed up for Twitter in late 2007.  I didn’t really get it, even though I was inspired by Guy Kawasaki to do it.  Who really wants to know what I’m up to? 

Well fast forward and I got something from Penelope Trunk a couple of days ago.  So I decided to give it another shot.  So far, so good.  Maybe enlightenment has set in since I first started, because I really like it.  It’s short and sweet.  Twitter gives me a portal to do that.  I blog to inform and inspire in a detailed manner.  I will Twitter to give quick shots and moment inspirations.

Some have said that Twitter is a head scratcher, but nothing could be further from the truth.  Everyday life wraps a gift within 24 hours and I’ve found a way to give a few brilliant lights from my experiences.

The blog will continue to inform and enlighten in a detailed, what’s in it for you the reader way.

Start Twittering and discover how quick inspiration blossoms.

I’ve Been Tagged/Memed

Nina Simosko tagged me for a book meme.  The rules go something like this:

  • List the books currently being absorbed
  • Pick up the book closest to you
  • Turn to page 123
  • Locate the 5th sentence
  • Post the next 3 sentences
  • Tag 5 more people

Here’s my contribution:

Books I’m Reading:

Meatball Sundae by Seth Godin – a book about not letting your marketing get confused.

Success Built To Last by Jerry Poras, Stewart Emery and Mark Thompson – a constant companion on my journey.  The book illustrates how many have married their purpose with success.

The Red Wine Diet by Roger Corder – I am a red wine lover and seeing how it can help medicinally is powerful.

A Work of Heart by Reggie McNeal – a book that comforts and keeps me sane, even though there are those that say it’s too late:)

Closest book:

Success Built To Last was the closest book at-hand.


" ‘When you’re swimming upstream in a nation where the average conversation is ‘what’s wrong with the children,’ and I am telling them what’s right with the children-well, that’s not a conversation that wants to be heard.’  So after 14 years of battling, of ‘seeing such lowered expectations for our children,’ Marva Collins started her own school, funding it out of her own pocketbook.  Collins believes she can change the world by helping children believe that the world would be a darker place without each of them. "

Share This

We’ve added a new (at least new for us at Epic Living) tool for the blog.  Share This is a neat addition to each of our daily posts.  It will allow you, the reader/subscriber, to…well…share the post with others.

I always appreciate your help in spreading the word about this blog and the ideas contained within.

If you’re involved in something where ideas need to be spread, I would highly recommend Share This.

Google Trends

Today I want to point you to Google Trends.  I may be late to the party, but I’m intrigued by what this tool can do.

I did a search on career management and I think you’ll find the results fascinating.  As search engines continue to grow as the go-to portal for information, these types of results could prove valuable to you in a host of ways…career, business, and marketing to name a few.
