    Hey Matthew,

    I’ve been looking for more groups to join this year where there are actual conversations, networking and support taking place. Most of the ones I’ve joined over the years end up being link drop fests and nothing more.

    I’m not active on LinkedIn mainly because that’s just not where my target audience hangs out for the most part but would like to stop by your group and check it out.

    Thanks for sharing this community and it’s good to know there are some helpful ones still among us.

    Enjoy your week Matthew.

      Hi Adrienne,
      That would be great to see you over there!

      The new ground rules have been laid out and they will be enforced. Link dropping and running won’t be tolerated. We don’t even encourage including a link unless it is absolutely necessary.

      Instead, this is a place where serious bloggers can talk shop. We ask everyone to leave their agendas outside.

      Have a great hump day tomorrow, Adrienne. (Those Geico ads have really brought back the “hump day” phrase.)

    Good day, matthew,

    I did not know that linking can be commercialised until lately. Anyway, I reckon it is time to mix with knowledgable seniors who really care to give good guidance.

    With regards
    Lew

    Matt, I will be joining this LinkedIn group and filling out the survey you sent me as soon as I get the money together to create my blog. I know it’s not much, but I am not working. Your articles are great. I am doing a lot of preliminary work before I get started. Not only have I had a lot to learn, I have been composing my first few posts. My English professor in college told us, there is no good writing, only good rewriting. And since I am rusty it is especially true for me now.
