The first time that I heard about BlogEngage.com was while visiting Karen Woodham's Blazing Minds blog. I kept seeing these advertisements for Blog Engage on her site and the phrase, "Blog Engage," alone, caught my attention. I like to engage, and to engage with other bloggers? I was curious.
Soon after, Karen had a contest and the prize was a Blog Engage account. Ok, I was game. I mean, all I had to do was a few tweets and shares per day, right? Silly me was new to raffles and didn't realize it was a drawing. So, after I had ensured that I was ahead, by all the points I garnered, sure that I would win, I was sad to find out I didn't win the Blog Engage membership.
I would daily visit BlogEngage.com and try to figure out what it was all about. It wasn't clear to me at the time, as I felt like I was peering through the windows, like a child looking at a candy store.
Recently, I received a question via a comment on one of my service pages and thought it was a brilliant idea to have a page devoted to Q&A. So, if you have a question about Twitter (or social media), feel free to post here!
Talking Technology Behind The Investment Industry... Information for the Individual Investor

- Why would/should we care about the technology behind our investments?
- How does this affect me, since I don't use a Private firm for my investments?

I love to write. I have loved to write all my life. I enjoyed the measure of success I had when I wrote my Web Tips in the late '90's, early 2000's. I was contributing something to the internet society, something people craved and could not get enough of to satisfy their search. There was plenty of room to grow and write more.
Then came Web 2.0, a wonderful explosion into the internet world, a world that was no longer limited to geeks like me who programmed everything from scratch. Now there were also blogs, blog software and web builders. Not to mention, a plethora of web designers and blog-setter-uppers.
I took my sabbatical, spent time in Corporate Management, and here I am, in front of the computer screen doing what I love.
But, wait... What if I honestly, with full integrity, write something that has already been written? Just because I "discover" something, does not mean it has not yet been discovered. The last thing I would want is to be thought of as plagiarising. But, you know, the more I think about it, there really is "Nothing New Under The Sun."
Whether it has been written about or not, no doubt someone has thought about it, or something similar. Granted, Web 2.0 was not on the scene back in the stone ages, but you get my drift.
So, here I write, from the heart, my discoveries in social media, both past and ongoing. If I write something that has already been discovered, I count myself honored to have the intelligence to reach that level.
And, do let me know as credit given to the one who posted it first is always a nice touch, and I am happy to add that touch :)
