Q: Why don’t you speak at conferences in person any more?
A: I did a whole podcast episode with the good folks at Working File about why I stopped. Listen to it here.
Due to the lack of in-person events brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, I decided to open up my availability for speaking at virtual conferences, town halls, panels, and similar online-only events. Even after the world opens up again after COVID-19, I will still do virtual appearances.
Thank you for your understanding.
Q: Are you on Instagram?
A: Revision Path is on Instagram, but I do not have a personal Instagram account (and will probably never get one).
There is a social media manager for Revision Path, but I do pop in and use it from time to time.
Q: Can we connect on LinkedIn?
A: Only if you include a personal note.
You know that little pop-up box that appears when you click the “Connect” button on LinkedIn? It has a simple sentence in there that most everyone overlooks: “LinkedIn members are more likely to accept invitations that include a personal note.” 99.999% of LinkedIn invitations I get neglect to include a personal note.
I end up deleting those invitations. Don’t be that person.
Q: Why aren’t you more active on Twitter?
A: I administer nearly a dozen Twitter accounts across my various projects, and I’m not active on all of them at the same rate. If you want to get my attention, email me.
