Hot off the presses...a reminder that although you can pretty much share anything you want on social media, you may not want to!

Here's my short list of cringe-worthy things that could reflect negatively on the brand you've worked so hard to build. 

What would you add to the list?

For the next time you find yourself stuck and unable to think of what to write about on your blog...

Thank you, thank you to +Kim Garst for this smashing list!

I'll be hanging onto this one for future reference. How about you?

Maybe stick a "happy" brownie in there, too?

I'm not for or against, but I think I'll stick with the Salted Caramel!

Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield, founders of Ben & Jerry's, would consider making a weed flavored ice cream, according to an interview on HuffPost Live.

When I used to smoke weed, it wasn't because it tasted good... Because it doesn't, it's horrid haha

LOL, +Ed Carter​​...Bazinga! And nice addition to the list. A little randomness can be a good thing, but it's easy to cross the line.

Hey, +Scott Wagner​​! That does seem to be the case...and it gets downright ugly sometimes.

What to wear, what to wear?

While you can wear pjs all day when you work from home, it doesn't mean you should!

If I have no meetings away from my home office, you'll typically find me in my workout clothes (so I can sneak in workouts throughout the day to break up the sitting marathon and to refresh my brain.).

What do you wear when you work from home?

#homeoffice #freelancing
 
Working from home means you can just roll out bed and straight into work, right? Blogger +Kris Prusynski says not so fast! The difference between success and failure could be the clothes you wear while telecommuting.

The "must do" that a lot of us neglect

We get so wrapped up in "taking care of business" that we forget to set aside time to take care of our business.

I know I need to give this more attention. How about you?

This was a nice reminder from +Becky McCray!

Our dog has been a patient with Hope and Dr. Shanley (a dermatologist) since July of this year. While our general vet was baffled by the symptoms Luna was exhibiting, Dr. Shanley diagnosed her quickly and got her on a treatment plan that has improved her condition immensely. Dr. Shanley is personable, funny, compassionate, and has top level expertise in his specialty. The dermatology nurses are also top notch and are masters of communication. They field our calls and emails promptly when we have questions and they email test results and instructions to keep us in the know. We are extremely pleased with the services at Hope Veterinary Specialists, and more importantly, Luna feels at home and at ease there. The services there are not inexpensive, but you truly do get what you pay for at Hope.

I'm thrilled with my new website by 1 Sky Media! John Oppenheimer was highly collaborative (and patient) as I figured out what I wanted. He freely offered his expertise and gave wonderful suggestions and recommendations as we discussed the site design and functionality. I've gotten many compliments on my website - and my logo (which John designed, too.) The site has helped me build my brand, showcase what I do, and attract new clients and readers. I highly recommend 1 Sky Media to anyone looking for a website developer/designer who is skilled at both the artistic and technical aspects of creating a site.
