Mea Culpa

One thing about the Internet, when you suck it’s right there for everyone to see.  Frankly, this has been a terrible blogging week.  There have just been too many things going on.  For starters, the weather here in the heartland has been awesome.  It’s been in the 70s with sun most of the time.  I haven’t been able to resist putting some serious (for me) miles on the bicycle.  It’s been a great chance to catch up on my podcast listening but it’s seriously cut into my writing time.

It’s also been a week of strange computer issues.  I can’t get onto Facebook and repeated requests for tech support have gone unanswered.   Then there’s TweetDeck.  I love TweetDeck.  It’s a neat way to access your Twitter feeds and frankly it’s spoiled me.  So, when a new version of the program came available, I jumped right on it.  Unfortunately, the new version doesn’t work on my machine.  Like the Facebook issue, I’ve tried several times to get help from TweetDeck tech support with no success.

None of these things is an excuse for not providing better content this week to you, my faithful readers and I promise to do better in the future.  But it does show how easy it is to get caught up in day-to-day stuff and get distracted from the important things.

But it also shows that social media isn’t the only thing in life.  Maybe it doesn’t hurt to step away once in a while to smell the roses, to enjoy the fresh air and sunshine, or to curse the gremlins that sometimes live inside our computers.

Let me leave you with something neat before we head into the weekend.  I received a notification this morning that KMZU Radio is following me on Twitter.  I tweeted them a thank you message and got the following message back:  Thank You, too, Mike Buckley! May the BLESSINGS truly Be! Have a great day.”

What a great, positive message.  We can all use more blessings and this one was greatly appreciated.  Another lesson learned from an unlikely source. 

To all of you, may the BLESSINGS truly Be!  Have a great day and weekend!

PS.  I spent a lot of time in my car during my days as a traveling salesman and I fell in love with small- to mid- market radio.  Just for fun, here’s a KMZU TV spot.
