I Want You To Help Me!

Many times these last couple of days, I’ve seen people scream out into the Twittersphere, begging for customer service, expecting to get their problems solved, when help is just a phone call away. Twitter isn’t always going to help you. Sure, the best companies may recognize that twitter is a quick-response option to small customer…

The Birth of a “Schnikism”

My Friend Wendi Eiland, who is totally awesome by the way (And a totally stellar insurance agent!), made this for me. It truly shows the evolution of how I write. It’s like she was on my shoulder…

200 Blog Posts and 13.1 Miles Later

You’re all still with me. Really? I had this idea as I noted that I was getting close to a 200th blog post. Only two or so years into my little home on the web, I realize that I’ve found what I love about doing this; they’re my thoughts, stories, and life, unfiltered. Pen to…

I just wanted to share a couple of things. First, as you may be aware. I’ve been punishing myself by going to the gym. It’s really starting to pay off. I’ve seen a drop of about 30 pounds since I started. I’ve also had to stop wearing some of my clothes because I look like…
