She Looked Great

Posted on April 14, 2010 at 3:33pm 4 Comments



She looked great. Her hair, jet black, long and straight, it went down to the small of her back. She was tall and lean, with a body that had been sculpted over hours and hours at the gym. When she walked into a room, all eyes found their way to her. She could talk at length about shoes and celebrity gossip, but sadly, that was all.…

A Giddy Gander

Staring out across the frozen tundra that is Martelle in January, I began to apply layers of clothing to my frame, as protection against the bitterness. This, like many of my missives, is a complete exaggeration, it is actually around 25 degrees and not bitter at all. (Now, back to the story) Fearing certain death, or worse, disappointment, I took a pull of diet dew and was about to leave, when suddenly, much to my surprise, the familiar bong of an arriving email caught my… Continue

He was right!

Using social media to connect with people isn’t just about finding a new customer for your product or service, or it shouldn’t be. Two days ago I got a message from a gentleman on Recruitingblog who had read one of my blog posts and sent me a link to a site. Sounds pretty typical huh? But he wasn’t affiliated with the site; he just liked it and thought I would too. He was right!…

There is a slight breeze today and a sky full of blue and sunshine. The temperature is somewhere between long sleeve shirt and hooded jacket. I choose the hooded sweatshirt that I had conveniently ‘hung up’ on the floor in the back bedroom. It was lying there in a little box of sunshine. When I put it on I reveled in the warm toasty feeling. I decided to make a turkey bacon, egg and cheese sandwich.…

Hi Brian,

I like the post! I think that having an interesting avatar pic is essential to stand out. Using unique cropping or color tones and getting a little creative can go a long way in capturing people's attention and standing out from everyone else.

It's something that people often take for granted and I'm glad to see your post on this topic!

Brad
