Holy Bible

As many of you know, professionally I dwell in the marketing world with my primary tools being search and social. I live on Google and Facebook beyond the standard 9-5 gig simply because it’s a requirement when you strive to be the best at something that with so many worthy competitors. I’ve even been accused of spending too much time on social media… as if such a thing were even possible.

My private life has been creeping more and more into my professional realm. I am a conservative Christian. I do as much as I can to learn more about the ways of the world both political and religious in preparation for whatever lies ahead. All too often, the collision of personal and professional do not mesh properly. Despite the fact that I am a firm believer that you should stand for what you believe in whether you’re “just doing your job” or out and about exploring the world, there are times when it becomes necessary to have an alternative venue that better fits the message that I’m trying to convey.

Thus, I will be posting search and social stuff on Soshable just as I always have, but I will limit my political and religious views to a minimum here. The only way to accomplish this is to have another place to let that part of me roam free. To that end, I’m turning dusty garage-kept hobbies from the past into websites that I hope will be able to make a difference.

My conservative blog and my Christian blog will be launching in full force in January. I have dabbled with both for too long. I have been blessed with the resources necessary to make them work separately from my professional life, so that is exactly what I’m going to do. Nothing will be lost at Soshable. The writing will still be pounded out here on a daily basis. I simply need alternative venues through which to “be myself” and express what I feel compelled to let out. Keep reading here and if you’re of like mind, be sure to check out my other sites as well. I’m looking forward to the best year ever in 2013.
