Welcome to our new home! Starting with this post, all future posts will be here. Please update your readers, feeds, or bookmarks to keep this site in your favorites!
We moved to our own platform, so that we could improve your reader experience and to expand the types of things we offer you on this blog site. (Thanks to Jill Konrath for her sage advice on moving to our own location).
Let me give you a tour of our new home (This is the proverbial $0.25 tour—I’d be glad to give a PayPal link if you like).
The home page is where all my new blog posts appear. So that you don’t have to scroll forever, only the last 3 posts appear on this home page. At the bottom of each post is an icon for you to comment. This is very important to me, this is where the real conversation starts. Please comment liberally. Also, you have all the buttons so that you can share the articles on your favorite social networking sites.
At the top of each article, you can ReTweet the article. I welcome you sharing these articles with your followers and friends, please retweet liberally!
We have something new, Tabs! Across the top you will see some tabs. The four to the right (starting with Building Business) are short cuts to the blog archive, based on key words and tags. For example, if you want to see all the posts on Value Propositions, click on the Building Business Tab and on the Value Proposition drop down.
The About and Services Tabs give you information about my company, Partners In EXCELLENCE, about me, and some unique services. There are also links to the company website which will provide more information than you could ever wish for on our services, case studies, testimonials, white papers, reading lists and other things. Making our company website more user friendly is the next task.
Over on the right, you can do a bunch of other things. Yes, there is the obligatory smiling picture of yours truly—at least it’s pretty current, not the one of me at 12 tears old! I’ve maintained the theme of this blog site as: Making A Difference. One of the values we hold very dear in our company is that we want to make a difference with every organization and individual we work with. That’s also my goal with this blog, I want to make a difference in the professional and personal lives of the reader, just as you make a difference in mine.
Below that, you can subscribe to our newsletter. I publish that about every 4-5 weeks with news about things I am doing or that our company is doing. You can also get to my LinkedIn Profile or follow me on Twitter.
Below that is a great tool Type in some search terms and you can get to articles on topics you are most interested in. Below thiese tools is a list of the past few posts of the month. I always hate these long lists that you have to scroll through, so it is restricted to the most recent 4-5 posts of the month, even though I may have written more.
If you want to see what I have written in any month, the Blog Archive with the Select Month drop down will show you all the posts for the month you select. Below that, the Topics drop down enables you to look at articles by key subject or key word. It has the same categories as those in the top tabs.
Next down, you get to see my most recent Tweets. Those are important. I primarily keep the blog articles to represent my views and voice. However, there is so much great content that I find in other blogs. I tend to highlight those links in my Tweets. So watch those, those are the links to articles from people who are a whole lot smarter than me.
Finally, at the bottom of the page (yes, scroll all the way down), there are a few things. You’ll notie the link to older entries–that takes you back through my posts chronologically.
Last, but not least, I have this paranoia that people won’t know how to reach us. Our corporate office information (including the ever reliable snail mail) is there and you can shoote me a direct email. Those come directly to me.
Thanks for taking the tour, I hope you enjoy our new home as much as I enjoy it. I welcome any suggestions you have–you know what it’s like in a new house, you have to repaint, touch up, start looking at the new additions. Remember, Mi Casa Es Tu Casa, Ma Maison Est Tu Maison, Mein Haus Ist Dein Haus, 我的房子是你的房子, Mit Hus Er Dit Hus, 내 집이 네 집이, 야, Мой дом ваш дом, 私の家はあなたの家です,
Welcome to our new home, I hope you enjoy it!
