Things that will make you think and say "huh"





I was looking around, surfing the net and was wandering indiscriminately around based on the various links that are emailed to me.  I guard my email address in such a way that I have everything organized, categorized.  It is important that when I subscribe to a site, that it does something for me.  Personally.  Not my husband, nor my family nor my employer.  It is my time.  Yes, it makes me a better wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, employee when I do so.  

What I see and what I post are random and make me mentally say "huh".  Not loudly as an acclamation "HUH!!" nor drawn out with puzzlement as in "huH??"  Just a small registration, like a blip, I mentally register with a "huh".  As in, interesting, let me read more.

You would think that as a person you have to be guarded and wary of giving too much of yourself away, to be taken unawares and exposed to danger, inconvenience, unwarranted attention, unsolicited retention.  

Imagine being a company.  Wide open to the opinions of many, anonymously by others.  How do you or how can you defend yourself against bad press, bad publicity?  I guess you create warm and fuzzy or hip and jazzy advertisements to catch the audience off guard, almost to believe more than "huh" to a "yeah".  That's good marketing.  Or is it good reputation?  

Information sits out there if you are a company, ready to be snapped up and shared on blogs, social media tweets, shares, posts, pins, grams, tumbls, reddits, quora'd, opinion polls, surveys.

It is backwards in a way.  In the way that companies are a name or a nickname brand.   It is the tag, umbrella, building, stock exchange ticker, associated by a price, a service, a product, a name.  

The name is a logo, a flag, a banner, a website, a name all bundled together as an identity.

Who are the company accountable to?  

* its leadership
* its personnel
* its shareholders

The reality, sadly, is that is not the real world order:: it looks more like:

**REPUTATION**
* its brand | offering | price 
* its leadership
* its shareholders
* its personnel

Yeah I said REPUTATION was the most critical cherry on top of the proverbial cake.  The ingredients are all mixed together:  brand+offering+price+leadership+shareholders+per-sonnel

wandering around the interglobe ....

I am pretty sure I've said this before:: I have social media ADD (attention deficit disorder).  What I mean is I can log on with a very singular purpose in mind, for example, check my email to follow up on something.

But, like a demon possessed, I scroll down the INBOX and all sorts of click bait jump out at me.  There lies another trait I have: I fall for click bait.  But as an anointed inductee, I admit that I have a problem.

You see, there is some deeper, hidden side to me that even I didn't know was there.  A youthful curiosity about anything and everything that grabs my attention, where the enthusiasm manifests (thank YOU GOOGLE CHROME spell check:  right click in GOOGLE BLOGSPOT and scroll up to top tag/link and it will show you the proper spelling of that word.

See what i mean?  I log here to blog about something and then completely think of something completely different and go on a detour for longer than it takes you to read this far.

OK, so you got the point on spellche…

An acting anything

I'm still not sure what direction this blog is going to go in.  Like my other 4 blogs, they evolved into a category that I am comfortable talking about in a demographic profile to speak for a strong spirited generation that many would think have shuffled on to the sidelines only NOW able to be discovered as doing famously well even if not famous nor infamous.

Comments about US Election
The US Presidential Election of 2016 is a anomaly that is for sure.   At the same time, it exploits a commentary about what is hidden in our society when it comes to men and women equality.  I've never written per se about a gender specific issue before.  However, now that is so increasingly being pronounced in this US Presidential Election seemingly to be more about genders than anything, I decided to speak up and based on whether this blog is shared, speak out.  

Gender
For hardly can it be anything but about gender is profound.  Let's look at the difference, as a reflection of what our societ…

A mom's brag book of her #A+mazing millennial children

None of my kids read any of my blogs
so it is pretty near 100% guaranteed that it is true.  However, my one daughter told me that at least one of her friends reads this blog Out of the 6 or 7 blogs that I curate and/or I write about varying topics that interest me or developed or furthering knowledge on something that grabs me.



Having grown up conversations with a daughter is a new and wonderful experience.  How far we've both grown from a nervous wreck of a mother, tasked with an ailing son who needed additional care and attention while she was a bright shining star, oozing with talent from every pore.  

A mother's gift is sometimes recognizing the gift in her children.  Why else would Elvis Presley's mom have been the subject of his first recording?  A miracle talent nurtured and encouraged by a mother's love.  There are far too few examples shared in the world these days.
