Thanks for indulging me, folks...
It's a new year, a new decade and I've been rethinking my Twitter name a lot. For me it's been an interesting experiment. I've kept it as "Knitfemme" because that's how so many in the cyber world know me. But, after a year of activity on Twitter and somehow many folks finding me and hiring me as a consultant, I've decided to open things up a bit.
I've kept my fiber-arts and biz identities very much tied because it's occurred to me that perhaps it would keep me a little bit more "warm and fuzzy" (pun intended). I think it worked. over 2,550 followers later, I realize that I'd like my identity to make a little more sense to folks who don't "get me".
Laura sent me this list from Forbes of the Top female entrepreneaurs on Twitter and first: I wasn't on the list. Second, my name didn't "fit" on the list.
I have chosen @MelissaThinks
When was I playing around with names and seeing what was available, there was some serious soul and ego searching going on. Can I just say, "I" think? Well, in many ways it's what I get paid to do. Most people who have jobs do, but in my case, perhaps it's more literal. The bulk of the work I do is based on two questions:
What do I do now?
What do I do next?
Pretty much! So, at this time in my life as a consultant I think I can absolutely "own" MelissaThinks. But that's because it's not "MelissaIsPerfect" or "I'mAlwaysRight" or "TrustMe" (Although I do in fact say that a lot).
So, do trust me and although I don't post to this blog as much as I have in the past, Melissa is really busy...thinking.
Around this time, every year, I spot trends among my small business clients. Of course, there are those who are always late to the tax...
