Today I joined a group, responded to correspondence I’ve received, and commented on a couple of posts. Mainly, I’m giving myself permission to take my time, to get familiar with the visual aspects of LinkedIn and to allow the medium to follow its course.
The number of invitations I’ve received to link has increased. I’ve gotten positive responses to most of my invitations and am nearing a thousand connections. I think that’ll be plenty.
An interesting side note: I believe myself to be an open-minded person, but when I saw that one member’s profile emphasized her affiliation with a religious group that I find a bit scary, I became less interested in furthering a business relationship with her.
On the theme of discernment, I’ve noticed an increase in comments on my blog and have to share one that I immediately disposed of as spam, just so you can see what’s coming through the airwaves of cyberspace:
Thank you for every other informative site. The place else could I am getting that type of info written in such an ideal
method? I’ve a undertaking that I am just now running on, and I have been at the glance out for such info.
Wha’? This feels like it went through a bad alta vista translation box. Oy! Spam!
I’m putting in my time, even though the daily rewards aren’t as exciting as I’d like. I’ll continue putting in 3 hours per week, as much time as I would spend going to networking events, and see what results.
I’ve heard from many of you with great suggestions and support.Thank you!
