First, I would like to acknowledge that Fury turned 12 a couple days ago. Happy birthday, son! I started this blog when he was five. I have been blogging for an entire dog year, and Fury has been a very patient video sidekick. To celebrate, I am working on a highlight reel of his best video moments, but that won't be done until the weekend. You're getting this important post instead, for now. As you may know, I keep a separation of c...

Father's Day to me is the day I eat anything I want, repercussions and belt loops be damned. Last year, it was 4 cheesesteaks. This year, it'll be hot wings n Guinness. What are you having?

Interested in a Pebble smartwatch? AT&T gave me one. I talk about cow blood and goad the kids into almost killing one another. You know, the usual. 
Remember when cell phones first came out and you were like "I'll only use this in an emergency, so it'll go in the glove compartment." You know you said that. When smartphones first came out, you also said "who needs email so bad that you have to check it on your phone, Mr. I'm-So-Important." That's just the way things go. When scary new technology comes out, our reaction is to say we've lived this long without it, so it's probably not ...

I wrote this for work, but I think it's useful stuff, seeing as we're all on Twitter too.

Introduction

Jim Lin is a VP, Digital Strategist at Ketchum PR. In addition to relishing the fact that he gets to legitimately hang out on Twitter all day, Jim’s job is to push the boundaries of digital and social media (and often rationality) to ensure that his clients break through the chatter to become the conversation, whatever or wherever that may be.

On the personal side, Jim is the blogger behind the Busy Dad Blog (http://www.busydadblog.com). Hailed by his mom as the best thing that has ever graced the written word, his blog is a repository of his misadventures in parenting, cooking and leading the workers' struggle. As BusyDad, Jim has worked with numerous brands and organizations on campaigns as well as ambassadorships, and is active in conference speaking circles, including BlogHer, BlogWorld, Blissdom, Dad 2.0, Mom 2.0, Bulldog Reporter, PR Newswire and Type-A Parent.
