The Pros and Cons of Blogging on LinkedIn AND Your Own Site (Part 5 of 5)

Want to see things from another perspective? This post has an alternate version on LinkedIn. Don’t tell Costanza! I’m double-dipping. This is the first time I have ever published something on both LinkedIn and my own blog. I’m well aware of the duplicate content penalty that search engines like Google use to avoid people copying […]

The Pros of Blogging on Your Own Site, as Opposed to LinkedIn (Part 3 of 5)

The right blogging strategy for you is out there! If you’re reading this post, you almost definitely understand the value in blogging. WordPress itself is a huge business, and Google owns another large blogging platform, Blogger (which I’ve hosted blogs on in the past). In a couple posts I recently wrote (one here and one on […]

The Shortest History of Blogging You’ll Ever Read People have been journaling their lives online for more than a decade now. If you want to go beyond blogging, you could even say it’s been 20 years.

Another Long Way Home

Our weekend adventure continues. Just like Star Wars Episode II being right before the Clone Wars, and Episode III coming as they close, these blog posts skip over the exciting part of the weekend (playoff hockey).

“The Electric City”

DA-DA! Cue the Star Wars intro music as the next two paragraph move up your screen. I learned that despite being 20 minutes away from each other, Wilkes-Barre and Scranton Pennsylvania are galaxies apart: Scranton is known as “The Electric City” for being the birthplace of the electric rail car, but shuttles, taxis and buses aren’t […]

How I Met the Horrible End of a Great Show

Really, Carter Bays and Craig Thomas? That’s how you wanted your show to end? With the two people least meant for each other in the entire show dramatically back together?

What Fall Out Boy Taught Me About English Class and the Best Quote I’ve Ever Conjured Up

Over the past few weeks, I’ve become acclimated to the Fall Out Boy song “My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark” from hearing it forty-eleven times at arenas during the AHL’s Calder Cup Playoffs.

The Almost Blockbuster Trade…

The last trip the Providence Bruins made to Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania was a long one. It was an overnight ride from Portland, Maine to the Keystone State in the midst of a seven-game road stretch. I mentioned my not-so-Rainmanesque victory at Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs in my last blog post, but intentionally left one story […]

Winning AFTER a Trip to Mohegan

Every time I go to a Mohegan Sun Casino, something significant happens in my career. My first trip to a casino outside Las Vegas (which I only went to for the MLB Winter Meetings & Job Fair) was to Mohegan Sun in Connecticut. It was August of 2010, and I was on a road trip […]

The Weirdest Good Day Ever

Wednesday was the most oddly memorable day I’ve had in a while. I was happy, a bit disheartened, relaxed, nervous, reminiscent and optimistic. Plus, there were cups set on fire. Although it may look like I caught Andre the Giant‘s chicken pox or decided to re-create the bubonic plague, my back actually feels better. I […]
