Blogging as fast as I can

I have to admit it.  I stole the title from a presentation I saw this past Monday.  But I guess it’s appropriate for the subject of this blog.

I’ve embarked on a new journey.  I’m not sure exactly where I will end up but I do know that it will be exciting.  Before I spill the beans let me give you a little bit of a professional update.

Presently, I work for a cool little start-up in Toronto called RealCash Bancorp Inc.  They are a leading financial solutions provider for real estate agents in Canada.  I am tasked with spreading good karma about the company all over the country.  I also work with a good friend of mine at Rogers Centre shaking hands and kissing babies.  I also spend some time helping out a couple of social enterprises.  One is now a charity called Toronto Green Community.  The other is a group I co-founded called GREENtuity.

And because I’m not busy (tongue in cheek) I’ve recently picked up a gig with an online publication called Techvibes.  They provide hyper-local tech coverage in Canada.  I am now one of their Toronto Community Managers.  So I’ll be blogging (as fast as I can) about the people, places, events, and companies that make up the Toronto tech and social media scene.

I hope you’ll take the time to visit the site and especially read my posts.  I think you will find them interesting.  I’m still searching for my “tech” voice.  A good friend suggested I just look for my voice and not to worry too much if it’s techie or not.  Let’s see which one comes up in 2010….

Your visits and comments both here and on Techvibes will go a long way in helping me along my present and future journey.

Thanks for reading and following me. 

I hope you enjoy the ride.

Your Call

I enjoy writing about the books that I read. I enjoy telling you about cool and interesting things that I come across.

However, I also understand that it’s also not always about me.

So, I’m going out on a limb here. (It’s a limb because I have not a clue how many people read this blog and would want to comment)

What would you like me to write or talk about? The choice is yours.

There are a few “rules of engagement”: Rational, reasonable and tasteful suggestions please.

Here’s what I will do in return: I will write about the suggestions you provide. If there are any really interesting one’s I may even choose yours as a theme to write about on a regular basis.

What would you like me to write about?

If you want something done, Do It Myself

I know what you’re thinking.

This post has nothing to do about fasting, New York or Elections. Duh. I know.

However, I came across a blog I just could not resist letting all of you know about. (If you already know of it, shame on you for not letting all of us know!)

Glenda Watson Hyatt’s is INSPIRational to say the least.

Please visit her. I hope you enjoy!
