A Google Account; so much more than just Gmail

Whenver I begin to work with a new client, I immediately establish a Google Account that we both can share. Why? For practical starters, I don’t want access to someone’s Gmail account — that’s a whole lot of trust issue that I don’t want to deal with. Second, the account gives us a place to create, share and store together. Third? Look at all the tools that come with a Google account at no additional cost. There’s simply nothing that beats a Google Account for good, fast and cheap!

The Internet you can’t Google

Google has placed in its index an estimated 35 trillion Web pages across the Internet worldwide. While this is an amazing statistic, believe it or not, 35 trillion is barely the tip of the iceberg.

Google’s index represents only an estimated 4 percent of the information that exists on the Internet.

This is not a typo or misprint. The actual information that exists on the Web is impossible to know, but is estimated to be 500 times what is currently available through Google. Hard to believe, but true.

Trusting prana…

Trusting Prana by Danna Faulds, with edits:

Trust the energy that

Courses through you Trust,

Then take surrender even deeper. Be the energy.

Don’t push anything away. Follow each

Sensation back to its source

In vastness and pure presence.

Emerge so new, so fresh that

You don’t know who you are.

Welcome in the season of

Monsoons. Be the bridge

Across the flooded river

And the surging torrent

Underneath. Be unafraid of consummate wonder.

Be the energy and blaze a

Trail across the clear night

Sky like lightning. Dare to

Be your own illumination.

Change Your Life In 2 Seconds

Pema Chodron writes:

One of the lines that I really like in Gaylon Ferguson’s book Natural Wakefulness is “Distraction is married to discontent.” You could test this out in your own experience. There’s nothing as real and direct and counterhabitual as being present with yourself, just as you are, with your emotions just as they are.

As difficult as that can be, the result of that training is nonstruggle: not rejecting your experience, fully engaged with yourself, with the world, there for other people. Another result of coming back to being with yourself, just as you are, is that emotions don’t escalate. Continue reading “Change Your Life In 2 Seconds”

Time for a course correction? Updated 12/13/2012

Here’s another post in an infrequent series that I do to give back to the community

A famous comment usually attributed to Lord Leverhulme goes: “I know that half of my advertising budget is wasted, but I’m not sure which half”. The same is true of your blogging and social media time! How can you tell if you’re on track? Which 50% is working? What can you do if you’re off course? Well, the simplest way may be to check your stats for the past year and see what links people are actually clicking on…

…then give them more of what they like and less of what they don’t! @jonswanson reminded me that reviewing your mosts popular posts and doing more like them is a good review do to as well!

Another interesting way is to add twitter tool Twylah to your mix. Twylah brings your brand message into focus, extends the life of your tweets, and helps you get discovered beyond Twitter. Twitter you say? I don’t even use that! Well, you might want to start! I use the sharing feature in the WordPress settings to send every WordPress post to Twitter as a way of amplifying my posts. I also use Twitter to share articles that I don’t feel like sharing on the blog. Together — my blog posts and my tweets — create what I call a lifestream and Twylah is the place where I put that lifestream. Twylah automagically organizes my lifestream by topic and gives me a pretty good indication of how the internet views my lifestream. If the topics are way off, it might be time for a course correction! If the topics look like who you want to be known as, then Twylah provides that validation as well…

Another reason why I love Twylah in closing is that I can host Twylah on my domain so that I can effectively add Twylah to my blog and get Search Engine Optimization [SEO] benefits from my tweets as well. Oh, and did I mention that Twylah is free?

Blogging in the community is fun, but if you actually want to be recognized as an authority in an area and get found when people are looking for you, these two tools may be all you need to amp your internet presence! Oh, and by the way if you’re looking for or ‘thought leadership’ marketing coaching, you can stop by my business site at
