Wordy Hiatus And Techie Stuff Update Post

Now that Blogger finally decided to upgrade to https, I thought it was time to come back for a visit.

So much has happened since I last posted. Job changes, family changes, ups and downs, the usual. I pulled all my old posts, since they had no real focus - other than perhaps showcasing daily life via images with occasional descriptions. Most of them were automatic reposts of stuff from Instagram via IFTTT. If you really wanna see that stuff, it's still there.

I was contemplating posting more often here. My wife has done #The100DayProject before. However, I soon discovered that there is no longer a functioning Blogger app on iOS. After all these years in the Googleverse, I'm not sure why I am surprised.

So I need to figure out where to post stuff. I dislike Facebook, and have all but deactivated my account there. Still on Instagram, though. Google+ was fun from the start, but hasn't held my attention for some time. I love Twitter, so much of what I want to say online is there, and will continue to be, as long as it remains relatively independent. Snapchat...is, well...yeah. Not sure about Snapchat. Maybe the new Snaptacles will help me do more videos.

Speaking of videos, I've been thinking a lot more about YouTube, since I get the feeling Google is about to redirect all its social energy there. That, and I'm verified despite having way fewer subs than the threshold of 100k. I may begin to post regular videos, since my channel is still too small for the Community content tab (as of this writing, I need 10k subs. I'm 9970 short). Guess it's time to start making vids.

If you're reading this, here are a few topics of current interest:

  • Bible theme study, via The Bible Project (a near-daily podcast/video activity for me).
    Here's one of my faves: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YbipxLDtY8c
  • Church, theology, leadership, and moving humanity forward with and through love.
  • AI for customer support - based on a current pet project.
  • CRM and sales management - my daily work.
  • Humor. We all need to laugh. I'll do my best to help you.
  • Tech. The industry, the politics, the news...I love it all. I will talk about it.
  • Photos. I'll post ones I take that are good.Maybe a "This Week in Pictures" slideshow of some sort.

Feel free to suggest or encourage more. Stay tuned.
