THE MEEK

The folks at the Do Some Damage website were kind enough to publish my short story, THE MEEK, where bullied misfit, Tommy Clark, by the grace of God, makes the world a better place for the rest of us. To read THE MEEK click here.

THE FOURTH SHELL

This is a short story I wrote for the Pennsylvania Game News back in 2003 as a gift to my dad and a tribute to his beloved bird dog, Heidi. While the story is a fiction as told, everything in there really happened.

Thanks to Game News editor, Bob Mitchell.

SHOULD MYSPACE BE PART OF YOUR INTERNET STRATEGY?

Home Business Magazine, June 2007 Written in January and published in June of 2007, this article was my first traditionally published bit on topics related to Social Media, a term I’m not even sure had been coined at that time.  HBM converted this to a blog entry in January of 2009, making it easier to share, although the material is way dated now and more of a history lesson.

San Diego Family Magazine, August 2007This is a piece I did for San Diego Family Magazine providing tips and tools for first time youth athletic coaches. I met some awesome people doing this one.

GROW YOUR BUSINESS THROUGH EMERGING ONLINE SOCIAL NETWORKS

Home Business Magazine, December 2007The follow-up to my June article in HBM, this is a much broader look at the state of “Online Social Networking” in July of 2007. After this piece I stopped pitching traditional print publications about Social Media topics because the blogs I followed were much more relevant than anything I was reading in the monthlies.

Since this was written, Twitter really has turned most of this stuff right on its head.

My Youth Sports Story: Three Parts

Positive Coaching Alliance

I wrote this short piece for the Positive Coaching Alliance back in August of 2008 to talk about my personal, lifelong journey through the world of youth sports. I’m a PCA Champion, spreading the word in my local and online community about the PCA, its philosophies and programs.

This is an amazing organization dedicated to cleaning the knuckleheads out of youth athletics and I’m tremendously proud to be part of their team.
