First, I want to say I’m sorry. Really sorry… I’ve taken you for granted. I would ask how you have been, but I know you haven’t been well. I haven’t visited you, posted, or even upgraded your widgets in more than a year. I know it’s not fair. You have done so much for me, and I just tossed you aside like a MySpace page.
I want you to know that what you have done for me is not all for naught. If it wasn’t for you, I would not have accomplished what I have in the past year. Nor would I be where I am today. Let me share with you some of the amazing things that have been going on. I’ll do it in list form, because well….people like lists.
- I wrote a book. No, really, I did! Don’t tease me like my high school friends do. It’s called Think Before You Engage. And, yes, it’s a real book. Well, no, that doesn’t mean it’s real. You’re right. But, look here. I even have a real publisher. One that’s been around since 1807!
- I’ve worked with amazing companies such as Dash Office. Dash created an app that allows you to have The world’s fastest mobile experience.
I’ve worked as well with incredible people such as Antonio Sabato, Jr. , C. Thomas Howell and Matthew Lillard. Then I had a fun time working with Jessie Csincsak, Natalie Getz, and David Good.
So this brings me to where I am today. I am exactly where I want to be. I have the most incredible job as the Head of Social Media for PayPal.
(Let me know when the shock and awe has calmed down.)
Yes, it’s that PayPal. The site that’s changing the way people pay and helping anyone, anywhere, anytime send and receive money. It’s the dream job for any social media expert, guru, ninja, master, black belt, buzz term. I’m working with amazing people, doing amazing things, and changing how commerce is done.
So, I hope you can understand that I have been really busy. It’s not an excuse. I get that. And, I want to turn this around. It’s my goal to publish to you more frequently. I can’t promise my posts will always be long and helpful, but I’ll do my best.
I look forward to spending more time with you and hope you do too.
