I’ve been quite zealous and critical of President Trump since he entered office, and even before. It’s clear that I am not a fan of his actions, positions, priorities etc. And over the past few months it’s clear my frustration is growing especially on my social media platforms. Now unlike many, I enjoy conversations withContinue reading “Trump, Twitter, Trouble…Oh My!”

Unfriending of Dissonance
An interesting phenomenon has taken root on my social media platforms. Unfriending of dissonance. For the past year or so, the frequency of friends laying claim to unfriending or unfollowing individuals due to their different opinions has increased ten fold. And I’ll be honest, it’s unsettling to me. I have many friends on my platforms thatContinue reading “Unfriending of Dissonance”
Greetings friends and welcome to the 2016 PANDAs! For those of you new to this, now annual tradition, the PANDA, an acronym for Positive And Niftily Delightful Associates, is something I randomly came up with during one of the commercial breaks of the 2015 Oscars. I wanted to acknowledge the most awesome and unique individuals who engage me on myContinue reading “2016 PANDAs!”
Building You Up
Yesterday, I had the privilege of heading back to my alma mater to present to some of the SAGrads about social media and personal/professional branding. Now, I don’t really consider myself an “expert” in social media or even a leader in the #SAField. I’m still relatively new and just coming into my own as a #SAPro,Continue reading “Building You Up”
Currently one of my many projects is creating a presentation about social media professionalism to present to some graduate students in a few months. Among the many books I am referencing, is Erik Qualman’s What Happens on Campus Stays on YouTube, and while reading one of the Rules, I thought about a conversation I had with someContinue reading “Reframing History”
Leader ↔ Blogger
Over the past few months I’ve been more attuned to leadership. Leadership is something we share and encourage amongst friends, colleagues and students. As Student Affairs Professionals we work on leadership within ourselves each day (Or at least we should). In our various events, programs and office structures we try to provide opportunities for growthContinue reading “Leader ↔ Blogger”
Hello World, It’s Me, Brian! is Vlogging!
After many months of back and forth I’ve decided to try my hand at vlogging. Now, I’m an awkward and soft spoken individual and those of you who may follow it, will see that. However, its a new adventure for me, so I hope some of you check it out 🙂 For my inaugural video IContinue reading “Hello World, It’s Me, Brian! is Vlogging!”
New Area for Social Media Training?
Preparations for training for Fall is completely owning my mind right now; and of course, if you know me, I spend a bit of time on social media, and, so between the two, I’ve been thinking about social media training. We have all come to accept that social media must be a platform to educate, learn, and socialize on. Through experienceContinue reading “New Area for Social Media Training?”
Introducing The PANDAS!
I’ve got some crazy deep thoughts going on in my head after last’s night’s Oscars but I thought I’d start my short series of Oscar Posts, with what I created in 5 minutes, the PANDA Awards! So, while an always attractive Neil Patrick Harris moderately hosted the event, with more outfit changes than Cher and aContinue reading “Introducing The PANDAS!”
