Social media for business summary … “Facebook is social media equivalent of the jolly put on for corporate clients; Twitter is definitely more the fast paced networking event; LinkedIn is a one to one business follow-up meeting from the (Twitter) networking event whilst Pinterest is your trade show stand and Google+, well that’s the presentation or seminar …” LPH
Finally, after 24 hours I've been able to log back in to my blog ....! The pain of separation and level of frustration was unexplainable!

Today is the day … I’ve been putting it off for several weeks now, but it’s finally come around and I can no longer ignore the work I have to do. It’s not that I mind doing it, in fact if anything, I’ll look forward to it. And I know that I’ll feel so much better once I’ve done it. It’s a bit like washing your hair when you feel ill, you instantly feel better about yourself and the world looks a little brighter.

Just one of the many pieces of support I received for my kickstarter project - thanks Robyn.
My last Thursday Throng Interview with the inestimable Rich Voza, elicited an unusual comment from Bittercharm who suggested that it might be nice, for a change, to interview me instead. Cue, one embarrassed Linda. Although you will often see me out and about on the web, and you may often spot my observations and opinions taking over, I’m really quite private and try not to put too much out about myself directly. So it is with much trepidation that I accepted the challenge. I warn you to proceed with caution.
A fellow blogger, and regular commenter on this site, left a couple of comments recently that got me thinking about how we, as authors and writers, claim the Right to Write. What they shared was that they felt daunted by the thought of being worthy enough for payment; my interpretation of this is they believe they aren’t good enough.
I’m not normally one for life reviews and goal setting and, as I’ve got older, this has become an even more pronounced trait. It seems that I tend to drift with the wind, being led by my ideas but rarely paying attention to my intuition; I’ve come to realise that this probably isn’t a very helpful thing to do. So, with the best of intentions, I have decided to review what happened in 2012 to see if I can learn from where I’ve been, in order to set some goals for 2013.
