Hi Mike. Thank you for the nice welcome. Yes, I really do want to learn more about Tweeting and the Twittersphere! I am pretty much a novice and I'd be anxious to learn and soak up any information or knowledge in the new communications vehicle. Let me know if there is a good reference book, a "just-have-to-take" course, or a resource of inside information on learning how to utilize Twitter and all these new social networking opportunities.
I really look forward to being very active in the club and getting to know other communication pros.
Hey Mike! Yep glad to finally meet you too! I swear I joined when you first put out the word for Des Moines Social Club, and even voted on DSMSC vs DMSC or was it SMCDSM vs SMCDM... At any rate - Glad to be on board! I'll be seeing you!
I tried to comment back to you and commented back to myself instead! Here was my reply to your earlier note to me:
I haven't yet. Financially I either need to land a mid/long-term contract position or full-time employment or else the house needs to sell to make the move. I had some good success with interviewing in the August-October range but it's since dried up. Doing some brainstorming on going into business for myself and talking to my first recruiter/headhunter to see if one of those routes makes sense. I should be back down to Des Moines sometime yet this month; haven't set the dates quite yet.
Hey Mike...I just jumped into the social media here at TimberPine this summer (previously just a landscape designer), prior to that it was almost none existent. Facebook went up in spring..twitter early fall. I thought Facebook would be a natural step for us. It was a great way to showcase the nursery, update fans easily and it seemed a level playing field that most customers could be comfortable with...vs twitter
tks for starting this group...I'm looking forward to moving up from my "freshman" level
Thanks for starting up the group! Such a great idea. One of my favorite things to do is get involved, so it is definitely my pleasure. Glad you were able to see "My Top 5" in Juice; it was such a fun thing to do. My husband and I like to get involved, and we look forward to more opportunities! I hear you sit close in the office as well!
