Can’t Export from Posterous :(

Posted by on Jul 18, 2010 in Tech | 0 comments

OK, I tried exporting my posterous site which I will still use because of it’s broadcast capabilities and the first time I did it, it worked but then I had issues and eventually lost it all. So I tried to export it again and it just would not work. The images would not transfer over and I was basically screwed. Well thankfully I had another blog that was very old school that I pretty much use as a backup and I was able to use that as a base for this.

Basically this means that all the comments from posterous didn’t come through and I nearly went mad trying to get it all working and formatted which I still have a few hundred posts left to go but at least I have it all sorted it out for the most part. I may try to get all that stuff in again….but not right now. Now it is time to find my own voice and see what I can offer the world. I will probably not get readers but that’s OK because this helps me to think, to learn and to try to be better today than I was yesterday and as long as I can do that I am cool with it.

Study @oldspice Style – A Sick Parody

Posted by on Jul 16, 2010 in Advertising | 0 comments

This parody looks good enough to actually be one the Old Spice ads. It rocks and of course I had to share it. Great job to the people behind it. Timing couldn’t be more perfect.
That is when you know your commercial has made it when you get great parodies like this!

What the Struggle has Taught Me

Posted by on Jul 16, 2010 in Writing | 0 comments

In the last year I have been through a lot, it has been hard and I have had to button down just to try to get through it. There were days I thought about throwing in the towel but then I realized that if I did then all the work and the struggle would have been in vain. I used to quit but I am still here today, I am not a quitter any more.

I will not give into fear, I will not just take a job just for security, and I will not let anyone tell me that something is impossible. Let’s get this out in the open we all have read there those inspiring words of wisdom all the time and most time they are just words. Mine are the same as any they look nice in the office but if have read them once you have read them all and there they sit to be forgotten.

Screw the haters, the fails, and punch the doubters in the face. (Not literally) I am on the hunt for what really motivates me, beyond the superficial and at the core. What drives who I am and the decisions that I have made. What does it mean to be challenged? I don’t know the answer but I am willing to find out, to make the changes I need to make, and own every step along the way.

Words are powerful but they are also very cheap, they are nothing if you don’t act on them. While I am starting to do that now I was scared for a long time and even now I have become tired of the no’s. So scratch these and create your own, know that in order to get to where you want to go it is going to be a bitch, it will note come wrapped in a box with a bow on top. In reality it means you will have to compromise for the greater goal. Find what those tenets that work and live them.

Is it hard yes, beyond hard at times but is it worth it that is for the individual to decide, but for me yeah it is and I will prove it every damn day to the people who give me the chance.

1. Get lost because not knowing what will come can be a gift as much as it can be a curse and that is why risk is so much harder to live on than certainty and security.
2. Give yourself permission to fail.
3. Do the thing you fear because that is what will make you better.
4. Turn frustration into perseverance.
5. Be open to the possibilities.
6. Listen more than you talk.
