I've been planning to write more but can't seem to find a time that works well for me consistently. I've been researching the writing habits of some of the writers and bloggers I've enjoyed over the years, but I thought I'd ask my network as well. At your convenience would you take a second and answer the poll below. - Thanks in advance.

In the latest +CoCo Dreamcast +Don Ball sat down with Chris Farrell,  +MPR News’s longstanding economics editor. Chris shares his perspective on entrepreneurship. Is it growing? If so, why and how? And as a personal finance writer, he warns us about the classic pitfalls of being an entrepreneur? Give it a listen and enjoy!

I'm super inspired by this week's +CoCo Dreamcast episode. This time around +Don Ball and I sat down with +Jenna Pederson.  Not only does Jenna own a thriving software development practice, she also cofounded the local chapter of the +Geekettes. Listen to our chat and find out why Jenna’s so inspired and inspiring!

One of the  #designthinking  principles that has resonated with me is the importance of having a biased towards action. In this post +Don Ball does a great job of explaining why it's so important to keep moving forward. 
Has this ever happened to you? You go to a killer conference, or hear an inspiring speaker and you leave PUMPED UP. You're ready to change your life, if not the world!And then a day passes. A week. A month.And NOTHING CHANGES.That’s because life doesn’t happen to us. You may have the starring role in the movie called your life, but you're not automatically the director.Many of us are waiting for life to bring us good things. But waiting around to...

Story
Tagline
Father. Husband. Data driven / empathy inspired: Your network is your net worth, invest in and curate it accordingly.
Introduction
I'm a digital strategist. I'm also a fan of human-centered designmusicphotojournalism and social technology

I do it for a living.

My Personal Why:
I believe each individual is capable of the amazing. I also believe each individual has the potential to be the catalyst by which others unlock their full potential.  

...

Below is a break down of my social web ecosystem: The social networks I use daily to organize & archive my experiences.

Google+
I don’t view google+ as a social network, I view it as my unique identifier the web over. The central hub I use to openly organize my thoughts and digital activity as it relates to both life & business.

...

Facebook:
My Timeline on the other hand is a window into my personal life. Which is why it’s the only place I can be found on the web with a different profile picture.

I use it to archive and organize the interests, social connections, memories and experiences that shape my perspectives.

...

Linkedin:
Linkedin is pretty much my living resume, an archive of my professional experience. It’s also where I map and maintain my professional graph as well as stay on top of industry trends.
...

Twitter:
I rarely use twitter to actively communicate. In my case tweets replicate the functionality of the status update, both on google+ and on Facebook. I do however use it to publicly archive my process. I also use it to share content I find interesting during research. More importantly I use it to listen, actively consuming content from a carefully curated list of twitter accounts I follow using Flipboard.

...

Instagram:
In 2010 I committed to taking a photo a day: Project 365.

Since then I’ve renewed my love for photography and find instagram perfect for capturing random observations & practicing photo composition.Your best camera is the one you have with you.
...

Foursquare:
For me Foursquare is less about the broadcasting of my location, instead I view it as an archive of the places I’ve been. Again, framed in the context of passively documenting my experiences for future reference.

...

— In life and in business the journey is the destination.

Pretty low key environment. Great for reading and catching up on emails. The food is pretty good, but not the greatest, however the baristas are friendly and the coffee is great. Not a bad way to kill a Sunday afternoon.

It's your typical coffee shop, friendly baristas, low-key atmosphere. Great for getting some work down.
