This ain’t my first rodeo.

This ain’t my first rodeo.

 As the cowboys would say, “This ain’t my first rodeo.”  No this blog has been a long time coming.  As they would say in the city, “I have been around the block” 

Before “Facebook” was all the rage, I was collecting friends and creating groups on “Myspace.”  I was promoting club nights and also trying to promote for some artist friends of mine.  I have built some teams and watched them fall apart, and I have helped out with charity events and fundraisers, some more successful than others.

I started a video log on “Youtube” about two years ago with the goal of uploading a positive message clip a day for a year; much easier said than done.  Yeah, I still upload a clip every now and then, but I have switched jobs a couple of times and find it harder and harder to shoot video from the hip without sounding the same after 100 or so videos.

I have been connecting with lots of people on “Linkedin” recruiters and classmates and colleagues.  I have been trying to create a network where I can help other people find a new job.  I believe that karma or the search for nirvana has been the reason that I have been able to land on my feet even though I am sometimes on shaky ground.

And so I keep on, trying to build a community where I can spread a message of hope for a brighter tomorrow.  One blog at time, one link at a time, one friend at a time, one clip at a time; I do believe one day it will all come together.  One day we will all be able to come together and co-promote each other in a positive way, where we can all be better off and make the world better off. 

No this ain’t my first rodeo and it won’t be my last rodeo.  I can recite the parade of clichés.  Keep Swinging, Keep Swimming, Keep Running, Keep Fighting, Keep Trying, Stay Positive, Stay in the Hunt, Fight the Good Fight, Do not go quietly into that good night, Keep Shooting, Keep Reaching; Yes, Yes, Yes, I will!

No this ain’t my first rodeo, I will continue to get back in the saddle.
