So this Thursday finds me a happy bear. My Empire Avenue stock is up to a share price of 105 and while I do have some back sliding days I am still (knock wood) above 105 today. I invest some in newbies recommended by DES Daughter and invest back in people who have recently invested in me. I do try to max out to 600 hundred shares in all of my investments, but if your div ratio is not great it may take me a Very long time. And if you sell off all of the shares you hold in me I will block you on Empire Avenue in order to be sure I do not again invest in someone who didn’t think enough of me to buy even a single share.
Now that I have Timeline I am going to try directing the FB post promoting this blog post Only to those on my Empire Avenue list. It is possible I may have tagged a person or two incorrectly but I believe that all of the folks on these lists connected with me First through Empire Avenue or have been active on one or more Empire Avenue related discussions. As I’ve mentioned before, I was Not blown away by Google Plus and deleted my account on that service not too terribly long after starting it. Honestly, at this point Facebook allows me to meet and get to know and keep up with an ever expanding circle of virtual friends.
Since my main purpose in social networking is to meet and get to know other people, and any business that results from these relationships is for me, simply an extra benefit. While I do promote my book regularly, I try very hard not be one note about it and I talk with lots of different people about lots of different things in lots of different threads on lots of different web sites. For me, online socializing is very much a time consuming hands-on more or less full time activity. But I try never ever to forget that it’s All about building real relationships with other real people.
(And I am a very happy bear this morning because I just got back from a great visit with my cub friend and I am maybe even Joyous Bear today ;)_
