I've been somewhat distracted ... I’ve been worried about this for several weeks, but here it is … a “thin” week for links!  Not only is one of these the piece by Seth Godin that was featured on Monday, but there’s just a dozen over-all.  Of course, I have “an excuse” of having a lot of my attention taken...

Some more silliness ...

I’ve been a bit distracted this week … as I no doubt mentioned, I had what looked to be a very promising job interview last week, and have been called in for a second round interview tomorrow, so a LOT of my attention has, understandably, focused on that!  As much as I’ve enjoyed writing The...

Guest Post: Seth Godin ...

Another week without a proper “book feature” … sorry about that!  As I’ve noted, of the 72+ non-fiction books that I read each year, “job search” titles have tended to be a vanishingly small element, although in the course of writing The Job Stalker this has certainly increased.  I am, frankly, in the middle of...

Somewhat back to normal ... So, as regular readers of this space know, this has been a bit of a topsy-turvy week, with last weekend having the links and the book feature (such as the latter’s been of late) flipped, and then my being out of town mid-week for the 140 Character Conference, from which I attempted a bit...

Live from Detroit ... OK, so I’m writing this (live) in Detroit (at the 140 Character Conference), but by the time you’re reading this, it will have been edited, linked, and uploaded, so it’s not so much “live blogging” as, well, something else.  You may recall that I’d been off at a TweetUp when Jeff Pulver came through...

Curiouser and curiouser ... I don’t know about you, but I’m somewhat scrambled from the flip-flop this weekend, when Friday had the “book feature” (as part of Blog Action Day) and today I’ve got the carry-over of what would have been your weekend links!  It’s probably nothing to you (well, except that you don’t have all weekend to...

Blog action day ...

Did you know it was “Blog Action Day”?  No?  Well, now you do.  In honor of this momentous occasion I’ve done something slightly bizarre … I’ve flip-flopped Friday’s weekend link dump with Monday’s book feature.  Why?  Well, you see … I was a participant in (i.e., I wrote a section) this year’s Age of Conversation...

Guest Post: Jon Gordon ...

As regular readers of this space will know, I sometimes have a hard time not succumbing to the “I’m doomed!” reaction as my job search crawls on and on and on, and, while I’m hardly a “lightness and sunshine” guy anyway, I have come to appreciate when a particular bit of “positivity coaching” comes my...

Some freebies for you ... I don’t have a book to bring you this week, or at least I’ve not done a review of one to chat about or have an author interview.  However, I do have a couple of books to point you to, which at least keeps the theme happening! This was inspired by a mailing from... Read more »

Another load o'links ... Ah, it’s SO nice to have my old/good computer back … I’ve been amazed at how much faster stuff as basic as doing my Twitter reading is with that much better a system!  Why does this matter to you?  Well, it’s made my Twittering that much more efficient, and I had a full load...
