Wishing I was better at this whole social media thing

This has been a whirlwind of a year.  I had my first kid, my mom moved in to help Mark and I through the Techstars session in Boulder, I was awarded the Managing Director role there (yay!  Congrats to me!), Mark and I are working on a biz plan, and we’re finishing our basement.  As I look back on it, I had zero time to do anything.  Showering was sometimes a chore (sorry for those sitting near me!).

I’m sitting here catching up on my reading in an extremely rare hour alone – specifically I’m catching up on Brad Feld’s and David Cohen’s blog. I work closely with David, with Brad at a distance, and they are probably the two busiest people I know.  I’m thoroughly impressed with the quality and depth of the writing on their blogs given their schedules.  It’s shameful to me and downright inspiring.  I’m making a commitment here to work better at getting in a writing rhythm.

Although I must admit, there is a part of me that likes anonymity.  A few weeks ago, a stranger wished me happy birthday on the street.  We’re probably connected somehow on Plaxo or LinkedIn, or maybe he saw the tweets wishing me a happy birthday, but it still creeped me out. (Stranger – not that YOU creeped me out, just that someone I don’t recognize can find out intimate information about me).  I guess birthdays aren’t intimate anymore.

Regardless, I’ll try harder.  Okay, I’ll do.  Thanks Yoda.
