So, there I was, wondering along in the SM wilderness when The ThoughtElf poked me and said, “Oooh! Look! Behold that sassy, shiny, successful Goddess over yonder. She looks like a Deep Thinker Who Digs.”
Which is how I met @MarketingVeep, Kelli Schmith – a very cool and accomplished Lady, (even though she does spell her first name wrong). In sharing insightful posts, much humour and introductions to her Goddess soul sisters, she inadvertantly lit the fire that started a new Neophyte Social Media experiment today. Enter Brooke Green, of the Caskey Sales Leadership Coaching Team. Brooke comes fully loaded with ammo for inspiration.
Today, she lobbed the Cherry Bomb Manifesto at me. I was quite inspired by this idea within: “Passion is not a luxury. It’s an imperative.” Sally Hogshead (Cherry Bombs is my kind of manifesto.) I was suddenly passionate to experiment and read as many manifestos in the next hour to see what I could see. Here’s how it went:
Experiment du jour: for the next hour I will read as many manifestos as I can and see what I gleanabout 8 hours ago from TweetDeck

@CaskeyChick You ignited experiment -> I just did a random manifesto read with fascinating results. I feel like lobbing more CherryBombs.about 8 hours ago from TweetDeck
After that adventure in Neophyte Social Media Experimentation I was so passionately excited that I told Chris Brogan he’s too sexy for his boxers. And he thanked me.
A wonderfully creative day for this fledgling Social Media student. I feel as if I’m a baby one step closer to Demi-Goddess status thanks to a nudge from Kelli (who still spells her first name wrong) & Brooke the Bomber.
