Thoughts out Loud

I was really glad I had researched and began using for automated tasks today. It was supposed to be a fairly laid back day, starting with friendly networking breakfast and followed by a simple consultation. 5 1/2 hours later I walked out of a very productive meeting with a good deal accomplished but very little time to do the things I had planned.

It happens all the time in business, and normally this would have put a serious dent in my social networking contributions. But not today. Granted I didn’t complete the blog I’d intended, but I was able to contribute links to Twitter throughout the day, and gained a number of “design and marketing” followers. Which was in the end one of my goals for today.

I have just over 1 week left. My goals for the next week is to write my guest blog, find 3 contributors for mine, establish a set weekly process, and work on submitting more articles.
