Micro-Blogging and Worlds Colliding

To quote Frank Underwood, “Did you think I’d forgotten about you?”  I’ve been away from this blog for several months but it’s not for lack of engagement.  Instead, I’ve been upping my social media activities, particularly on Twitter. 

That’s proven challenging, however:   I joined Twitter primarily to keep up on the thoughts of musicians, actors and other creative types.  That soon evolved to include snippets of conversations with fellow fans.  But it didn’t really include much in the way of “work thoughts.”  So when business colleagues started following my tweets, it was a bit jarring.  And I’m reminded of the Seinfeld episode where George’s compartmentalized worlds collide.

Anyone know how professionals manage to live fully engaged lives in the new social media universe while maintaining their professional dignity?  Tweet me @RobGlander

What Am I Reading?


Remember B. J. Novak from Punk’d, The Office and  Inglorious Bastards?  Who knew he was such a thoughtful and hilarious writer?  I just finished his new book of short stories and micro-essays (I think I just made up a new word!)  and laughed throughout.  It’s an easy, funny read that is appealing from start to finish.
