Learn How You Fascinate Others With This Personality Test

+Henneke Duistermaat highlights the work of  +Sally Hogshead  in her most recent post. +Sally Hogshead has developed a personality test based not on who you are as much as how others perceive you.

Example: I'm an INTJ which means I'm naturally introverted and analytical, but I have to adopt a persona that is more outgoing than my natural inclination to reach out to people. Just how do I do that and still maintain my authentic self? In my case it is through my natural PASSION and INNOVATION because I"m a CATALYST.

Want to find out your FASCINATION profile? Sally has given Henneke's readers a limited number of free passes to the test.

Click on through. Take your test. Tell us about your experience in the comments below.

Humor in Content Marketing: Episode 23 of AmyTV

It's always a thrill to get an email from +Amy Harrison in my inbox. Both her AmyTV episodes (formerly known as Content Marketing Stripped) and her blog posts are more than fun and funny. They are useful.

But what a surprise, I had today when I clicked over to the post page hoping to find out what she has cooked up with +martin shervington to find my name mentioned with an endearing thank you.

The pleasure is all mine. I love seeing what great minds and talents can do together. I learn so much from the experiences. 

I hope you do as well.

Who would your like to see working together? Google Plus amazes me at how easily we can make those catalytic connections.

Finally Content Strategy Made Plain in a 180 Second Video

h/t +Andy Crestodina is brilliant as always in this timely post. [So glad I was smart enough to sign to his email list]

In this micro piece, Andy steps us through the gist of creating a content strategy in a blink of an eye. 

If you are like me and want a deeper dive, his accompanying blog post delivers there. 

Also if you are an avid fan of +David Amerland (again, like me) and caught his Sunday Read a few weeks ago then this quote by Andy will resonate a bit more deeply:

"Empathy is the greatest marketing skill." 

That's right, EMPATHY. It's not just for mystics anymore.

If you didn't catch David's Sunday Read on Empathy, here's a link. And don't cheat yourself! The comments are are gold as well.

Collaborative, Scaleable Models for Writers': +Jane Friedman & +Joanna Penn discuss the business angles

Not so surprisingly, this was our original thinking behind #Mto5

We wanted to create a collective to support one another's work...especially genre-based multicultural books.

What are your thoughts? Dreams? Suggestions?

Maybe This Explains (In Part) The State Drivers' License In My Wallet

I grew up bouncing between Northern and Southernmost Illinois and Hawaii. Yep, today is Lei Day, and I'm celebrating it in Honolulu.

Does this map speak truth to you? I actually loved the time I spent in Illinois.

+Introducing: +Lori Sailiata ...That Would Be Me.*

h/t +Meloney Hall for hosting this genius HOA concept show. Also a shout out to +roxanne davenport and +Sheila Strover who shared the filmstrip with me.

This shows that in spite of technical difficulties, the HOA does go on.

One caveat. I'm still not 100% myself as yet. When I push through the pain...I often overshoot the mark. My radio shows were a bit more (ahem) laid back. ^-^

But I'm just as excited about the medium of Hangouts On Air as ever. I can't wait to get to play with the Double Bubble Comment Tracker.
