1. One place for all our books, music, and videos, accessible from anywhere. I don't want some books in iBooks and some in a Kindle app. I don't want some music from Spotify and some on Google Player and some in iTunes. I don't want to have to remember whether I rented a movie on Netflicks or rented it from Amazon. I want one media library that consolidates every piece of media I've ever owned. I want one app that opens or plays them all.
2. One place for everything I want to share. I don't want to have to log into Facebook, log into Instagram, log into Google+, log into Everpix, log into Twitter, log into Tumblr, and log into any and every other sharing service out there just to put stuff out for my friends or the world to see. I want one place where I can share stuff without worrying about rights, being bombarded by ads, or having to fiddle with confusing privacy controls.
3. One easy way to follow someone. I don't want to have to figure out whether I should follow you on your blog, on Twitter, on Google+, or on Facebook. I don't want to follow you in multiple places, only to discover you're sharing the same thing in all of them -- or to find you sharing different things in different places, and then have to decide whether or not I want to join all of them just to see what you have to say. I want your entire online presence associated with one unique identifier -- your email address, perhaps. By following that, I should see everything you make public.
4. One place for everything I want to see. I don't want to have to check Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Tumblr, Reeder, a USA TODAY app, and fifty other apps. I want one stream -- one -- that pulls everything and everyone I'm interested in into one space that is quickly and easily browsed.
5. One place I own. I want an ad-free experience. No worries about a company going out of business and my content vanishing with it. I want this place to be mine, to be something I buy and pay for, so that I have no worries about giving up my privacy or my rights ... a place where I am not the commodity being sold.

I'm Mark McElroy, a writer and multimedia producer living in Atlanta, GA. I'm on Google+ to connect with other professionals in the multimedia production, employee communication, and travel writing industries.
By day, I conceive, script, and produce multimedia for a large financial institution, helping internal clients define their message, audience, and communications goals. Then, working with a team of world-class photographers, video editors, and graphic artists, I produce compelling stories using text, graphics, animation, voice-overs, podcasts, and videos. My team is fast, fun to work with, and we have a remarkable ability to scale the magic we do to match our clients' time and budget.
Outside the office, I'm a prolific writer and passionate traveler.
In the early 2000's, I became an expert on using Tarot and divination as creative brainstorming tools. I wrote a half-dozen books on Tarot (including Putting the Tarot to Work, Taking the Tarot to Heart, What's in the Cards for You, and the classic Absolute Beginner's Guide to Tarot) and designed several popular tarot decks, including the Lo Scarabeo Tarot and the Bright Idea Deck, which I like to call "the best brainstorming tool you've never heard of." I've written other non-fiction books on topics from Apple computers to lucid dreaming.
As a traveler, I've visited more than 40 countries in the last 20 years. I specialize in writing about "comfortable, affordable destinations" and connecting people with good resources that will help them make the most of their limited travel time.
I'm creating a job in the travel writing industry for myself, planning to use my skills as a writer and multimedia producer to carve out a niche there. The ultimate dream is to be writing and traveling full-time.
Since November of 2000, I've been finding my path, telling my story, and sharing what works at my personal blog, MadeByMark.com. Feel free to drop by and visit me there!
