Three years ago today, DigNuggetville was launched and keeping with tradition, I’m reposting the “Inaugural Post” outlining the mission and goals for DigNuggetville. Except for the auto industry comment, the blog has been true to the mission outlined below.
As I have been hinting to in recent posts, Year 3 of DigNuggetville will feature something totally new – something I have been brewing up for the past 3 months or so. I look forward to its debut in the very near future.
Thanks for interest in DigNuggetville and keep reading those nuggets!
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 - 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
