It's important to remember that fertility of our minds and of our creativity is timeless. Grateful to be beautifully reminded of this fact by +Walker Thornton today on #MidlifeBlvd
 
+Midlife Boulevard  #sexualhealth  columnist +Walker Thornton on why fertility at midlife isn't about babies. Bringing #sexy  back to midlife!
It’s the day after Easter, religious holiday for some, an excuse to eat chocolate bunnies, and for others an old (pagan) ritual observing the rites of fertility and spring. No matter what you think of the day, we are in the season of spring—new beginnings, blossoms, lambs and chicks, all things we associate with fertility. ...

Really simple explanation of branding. Geared to students but great for all.
 
4 Personal Branding Tips For Students

If someone is old enough to post on social media, then they are old enough to understand the basics of personal branding.

If you are a student in middle school, high school or college, start paying attention to your personal brand right away. Here are some personal branding tips to consider if you are still in school, and ready to go to the next level of your academic or professional career:

1) Watch what you post on social media
2) Delete anything incriminating
3) Use social media to your advantage
4) Ask for help

It's still Friday, right? The days are blurring into one another as summer progresses, it seems.

My co-facilitator, Ami Hendrickson (@MuseInks), and I, kicked off the first week of our local 8-week  #Write2TheEnd  Writers Workshop(TM) with our participants on Monday.

Here's Ami's post about the introduction of my silly Doubt Box. It's an exercise you might want to incorporate if you have a desire, but are struggling with telling your story. Hope you enjoy.

Have a super weekend! I'll be writing!

I have a #branding #problem with G+. It's why I haven't committed very much time here. 

I need to be able to KEEP MY CIRCLES and my connections, but CHANGE MY identity to match my new & improved brand, not one that goes with a website that doesn't exist anymore.

Otherwise, honestly, G+ is of no use to me because it confuses my message.

Can anyone pretty please help me accomplish this?? +April Welch ? +Peg Fitzpatrick ?

Sorry I missed this last week +Kim Jorgensen Gane :D

I'm still trying to catch up from the rumors of G+ being "disbanded" and whether or not it's going to be worth the learning investment for anyone

I posted a #recipe or two to make #Veggies  taste amazing! AND I put  up a blog post this week, because I was feeling a little miffed at #Facebook and thinking I needed to hang out here on #Google+ a bit more often. I'm working on it...my brain doesn't adapt well to change. :P

Here is my Open Letter to Sheryl Sandberg: Crackbook Saved my Sanity but Now We Need to LEAN On Other Platforms, in which I suggest joining +April Welch & +Lisa Flowers Latorre's great group to help us do just that!

Working on keeping up with that, too! Good news is, lots of work this week! Including a day at the #GreenTown   #Conference  in #NWIndiana , I HIRED A COVER DESIGNER for my first upcoming GANE Possible Publication, and I met with my fellow  #EPWA  board members to help bring their communications & media into this decade. Whew! What a week! So yeah, I need to #Simplify  my #SocialMedia  efforts, big time!

Question, +April Welch: I've added an account, I can see both of them, but how do I merge them into one without losing all my connections? PLEASE tell me this is possible??

I met Lainey and her great kids when we lived in San Diego. I'm sure she'll deliver and put great energy into a very worthy and enlightening discussion about The Role of Auditory Processing in ADHD and Dyslexia.
