voter registration

Voting? A little info, please!

Sick of the ads yet? If you get your candidate information from those 30-second scathing attack ads or pieces of paper dangling from your front door, may I suggest a more informed source? You see, in my state voters are called to go to the polls tomorrow to select their candidate in Wisconsin’s primary election. […]

The Day After…

Nine years ago most of us were glued to the television. We couldn’t look away from the destruction and heartache, and we couldn’t get enough information. Each new day that followed hinted at just how much life would change for us. You may recall that not too many companies were getting their products sold–at least […]

Bob Dylan and Google: Be the change

PSSSST: Want to shave 2-5 seconds off your Google search? This week Google announced Google Instant, a new search enhancement that shows results as you type. Even when you don’t know exactly what you’re looking for, Google’s predictions (guesses) help guide your search. And if everyone in the world used it, we’d save a collective […]

“Tweetiquete” means it’s all about others, too!

Are you a Twitter Bore?  If you use Twitter to promote your business, one of the best ways to increase your credibility and inspire others to listen to you is to talk about others. Really. Sure, you want to tell the world what you’re up to, but if you’re merely tooting your own horn you […]

A Coke by any other name

I was raised on pop. I’ve lived in places where it’s called coke. Which is descriptive if you’re cracking the top of a red and white can, but calling a root beer “coke” is disturbing to me. Now I live in a place where we call fizzy canned soft drinks “soda,” and I’ve adapted my […]

Communicating your impact is elementary

When you ask your kids how their day went, do you get a “mmmffph,” an ughhhng,” or a “mmmmokay?” Yeah, me too. I learned that this isn’t the best question to ask at 3:30 p.m. Over the weekend I heard some great advice to help parents draw out real answers to what we’re really asking: […]

Tech help that gets me

So there you are trying to figure out how to get voice mail from your new Blackberry, or how to set up a system restore on the computer you just bought. Where do you turn for help? I dread tech help. The hours waiting on the phone, the elevator music interrupted every sixty seconds to […]

With this post, it’s launched!

This is my first post officially as a freelance blogger–and the first moment I’ve hinted to the outside world that this site exists.  I’ve blogged for plenty of others– ghost blogging for clients or blogging for the companies I’ve worked for–but today I am writing as just me. All of my posts older than this […]

A bittersweet transition

A bittersweet transition

My last week of employment on staff at my church happened to be the week our people didn’t go to church at all! (I’d sent an all-church email blast with the headline, “This weekend, don’t come to church!”) Instead we had a party tailgate style at the Fox Cities Stadium. About 12-hundred came to the […]

Extreme Home Makeover to help a CTR family!

A great article in the local paper today about the selection of a Neenah family to be featured on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition this week. Our own Rhex Arboleda is one you may have seen on our worship team at CTR playing the drums on weekends. Here he is reacting to the news:
