It’s been a blitz of a year outside of DigNuggetville as I started a number of new things – yet, the blog is still humming along. In the past 4 years, DigNuggetville hit:
-48,764 unique visitors
-69,158 page views
Not bad…it’s a start. Perhaps some day I can do those numbers in a year (well maybe not the “posts” number) but I’m happy nonetheless.
As for those “new things” from the past year, one of the most interesting is co-hosting a podcast titled:
The David Diehl Show – Sports, Tech, and a Bunch of Other Stuff with Co-Host Dr. Dan-o – – presented by Today’s Business
The host David Diehl (2-time Super Bowl winner for the New York Football Giants) handles the sports questions and I do the tech questions.
The AskDDShow is a lot of fun (YouTube channel) and has an active community on Twitter and Instragram – send David and I your sports and tech questions @AskDDshow! Episode #3 will be released today.
Finally, as I did with previous Birthday posts, I’m re-posting the “Inaugural Post” below outlining the mission and goals for DigNuggetville. This serves as a reminder so I stay on course for the upcoming year.
Thanks for interest in DigNuggetville!
P.S., The summer is NOT over (yet) and there is still plenty of time to get one more excellent book in – check out the 2015 Summertime Book recommendations post if you need an idea.
August 10th, 2011
I hope the summer has been treating us well. For some time now, I have been cooking up the idea for – dignuggetville.com – so WELCOME to the inaugural post.
The number one mission of this blog is to disseminate, distribute, broadcast, circulate, etc., nuggets. As you recall, nuggets are takeaways – a kernel of information you would like to stow away for future use.
Now in class, I made you record things in your journal (and yes I know a few of you out there still keep your journal alive). Either way, I want to continue our conversation and share more nuggets.
The recording of nuggets is strongly rooted in learning theory and is the foundation of my teaching philosophy. Broadly speaking, the main thrust of our discussion will involve (but not limited to) my main areas of interest:
- Marketing Strategy
- Marketing Research
- Servant Leadership
- Web 2.0/Social Media
- Personal Selling and Sales Management
- Consumer Behavior
- Books/Business Media Recommendation
- Networking (e.g., the old fashion face-to-face kind, as well as, the newer social media kind)
- All things Apple Inc, Google, and the entire auto industry (just kidding)
Most importantly, I would like to hear from you. If you are having a problem at work or want to talk through a career related decision, these are things I help out former students colleagues with on a weekly basis. In summary, if there is something you would like to ask, please post a question.
Again, welcome to Dr. Dan-o’s creation – dignuggetville.com
