Three Ring Circus, or something

Here is my final thought on Google Authorship, which was there, and then wasn't there: and you want me to do what? Really?

Positive reinforcement

Remember star charts from grade school? I tried them once or twice at home, related to chores and privileges, but just wasn't that kind of parent. I wanted to play with stars as rewards, more for me, than for the kids.

Sticky stars, colored stars ... they still move me.

So today, my week is made, I have earned a star. From eBay, in the color of my favorite stone, turquoise.

Think about giving your users a star for performance, participation, appreciation. Those of us who are old-school will get it.

Need help? I have random skills!

Beating up your keyboard trying to create that slick PowerPoint presentation? Got you covered. I can take your rough outline and turn it into a beautiful multi-slide presentation, with custom design, images and awesome fly-ins and -outs.

Need to learn how to use a program or online tool? I'm a great teacher. I'll even do an in-service for your staff.

This is kind of a random collection of skills, but colleagues call me all the time for help with these, so there's a need and I have the way:
  • PowerPoint
  • Publisher
  • Google Docs
  • Working with PDFs
  • Screencasting
  • Dropbox

On being a ghost writer

Well, yes, I am and yes, I do.

It's part interviewer, part voice-projection artist and a lot good, basic understanding of the field you are spiriting around in.

So yes, this is me, writing on retail marketing.

With an acquired persona and not getting any cred.

And the take-away? In order to maintain a blog, passion must come from the source.
