Goals? Me?

I was asked today by a smart cookie what my goal is for this blog. Good question. I hadn't spelled it out even to myself because that would seem too much like work and, as I've mentioned, this isn't work. But he might be right (he often is)....

So, here are some things I'd like to accomplish:

1. Network and meet more fascinating people like the smart cookies listed to the right. They floor me on a consistent basis with their great ideas. I've been lucky to learn from them. I hope to add more to that list as time goes on.

Also, networking some place away from work, where you are seen in your own right, is a good thing sometimes. Ironically, Allan Jenkins had a post relating to this today titled "Don't mix your identity with your employer's".

2. This is also a way to have a place to express some of my own ideas and opinions about PR, marketing, blogging, events, cycling and a bunch more. I'm not a complete dumb bunny and sometimes I might just make sense. I've been very fortunate to learn from some great people in my career because they were willing to share some of their knowledge with me. If I can provide one tidbit of knowledge to, or spark an idea for, someone I would be wildly flattered and happy to be able to share that with them.

3. This is a chance for me to learn more about technology as I go along with this blog. You might see me 'kick and scream' from time to time as I flub my way through all of the technology, but I'll get there (I know, I know, RSS is next on the list for this site). There is just so much I need to learn. I'm a newbie here and I know it. I'll get there, just please have some patience with me.

Thanks, Tim, for making me put this in writing. It was a good exercise. You are a smart, smart cookie and a good friend.

Just some tidbits for today...thanks for stopping by.

I don't exactly know if there is an accurate emoticon for blushing (without using the silly smilies).

You are already an inspiration for people, even "smart cookies", and I think you are well on the way to meeting the stated goals.

It'll be nice to have another venue for all of the ideas and thoughts running loose in my head.
