My job is nuts! … oh and Google Reader too
For a while, I got up and went to work and no one even knew I existed. Now, it seems, EVERYONE knows I exist and I’m constantly, you know, doing stuff. Not that I’m complaining. I love my job. It’s cool. I get to do some cool stuff. For instance, setting up company-wide webcasts. And updating the website.
Thursday was very hectic as I ran around getting stuff done. I guess folks like me because I do what I say I’m going to do. I try very hard to keep people happy and get everything done I’ve promised. But lately I feel like I’m being pulled in about a thousand different directions. I didn’t even have time to blink today.
My boss says I’m getting good visibility. I agree with her, but I still wish I could be totally anonymous. hehe
I’m in charge of organizing and setting up next week’s webcast. Plus, we’re recording the conference call portion so we can distribute it to the other offices so I’ve had to figure out how that all works. I did a pre-test to my test today. The pre-test involved Brother and Best Good Friend (aka sis-in-law). I recorded our teleconference session and webcast and then did a playback. I was shocked to hear myself talk – I have a really bad drawl. It’s awful! haha At any rate, I got everything organized and sent-out official sounding emails. I feel so important…NOT! LOL
Anyhoo… I want to share a really cool tool someone told me about. It’s Google Reader. Do you know about this handy thing? I didn’t. In fact, I was all too happy to get it all set up and use it. It’s for those of us who are blog readers and want to keep up with our friends and industry folks. I set up all my favorite blogs on the reader and then all I have to do it skim the list to see who’s updated. I can read it right there on the screen and if I want to comment, I just click on it and it pulls up the blog in a new window. I LOVE IT! It’s great! I highly recommend that if you keep up with 203498 blogs a day, log into Google Reader. You’ll need to set up an account on Google (but I already do so no big) and then just add your favs under Subscriptions. It’s cool!
Okay that’s it for me. I’m off to work!
