Improving your online reputation / brand

Sunday, August 18th, 2013

Although I’m far from finished improving my WordPress blog/theme, I’ve also made a number of changes to this website and elsewhere online that supposedly will help my personal brand. Completely redoing this website’s taxonomy did not go unnoticed by Googlebot, but it didn’t result in any great increase in website traffic.

I finally found a use for Google+

Saturday, June 29th, 2013

I only have so much time for online social networks, the one I use the most because it works well on my iPhone is Twitter. One of the social networks I use the least is Google+ because it is just too much of a Johnny come lately social network with no killer feature .

I have this domain and this blog, plus Facebook and Twitter were more than sufficient for me to share too much personal information online.

Blog your way to a better career (they really, really mean it)

Sunday, January 20th, 2013

Self proclaimed experts continue to insist that jobseekers should blog. I’ve written well over 1000 blog posts and I have to say the more I blogged, the worse my so called career has gone. Other people may have benefited from blogging, but it isn’t advantageous nor necessary for everyone to blog…

Barney Stinson’s Video Resume

Monday, October 8th, 2012

When you’re unemployed you have a lot of time on your hands. Sometimes you end up watching TV shows you never knew existed when you had a job and didn’t have time for cable television. The other day I was watching “How I met your mother” and one character was a Canadian looking for a job, if she didn’t find a job she would be deported…
