This reminds me of David Allen Coe's Perfect Country Western Song.

Here is a question for the group, every time we put up a blog post in G+ it shows the header image from our blog instead of the image in the blog post. Anyone know how to fix that?

Figured asking in G + was the best place to find an answer 8).

Did you ever wonder who were the top 20 social CMOs in the Fortune 100?
Well this morning we have a post explaining who they are and why. It has a spiffy infographic and everything.

Not Jeffrey Hayzlett.  After being a prime factor in the demise of Kodak he's MIA. ;)

I ask people to share things from time to time for various reasons. Please consider this a plea to read and share this heartbreaking blog post. The Anarchist Soccer mom shares her personal story about dealing with her violent mentally ill 13 year old sold.

This is the national conversation we need to be having. This is the kind of blog post everyone of us should aspire to writing some day. Something that can change things. Make things better and help in some way.

Maybe it struck home because one of my best friend's step son is exactly like her son. Maybe it is because one of my cousins was like this when he was young. He has been in and out of prison his entire life.

I am guessing many of you have either experienced this first hand, or you know someone who has. Please read and share if you can.

Warning you are most likely going to be left in tears as I was.

Story
Introduction
I am the CEO & Co-founder of BlogWorld & New Media Expo and it happened completely by accident. I have been a news and politics junkie since grade school.

The 2000 elections and September 11, 2001 led me to the blogosphere. I was hooked immediately and finally started my own blog in 2005. A year later I started searching for the "Blogging Industry Tradeshow".

Stunned that it didn't exist and having attended, exhibited and organized some of the largest events in the world I knew I could put it together but thought I might be the only blogger geeky enough to want to go to such a thing.

Turns out lots of other bloggers, podcasters, internet radio and TV broadcasters were looking for the same thing. If you have read this bio this far you are probably one of them 8).

The blogosphere and social media has changed my life forever. It has been and continues to be an amazing journey. I can't wait to see what the future will bring. Come join us.
