He’s a cartoonist, html and css wizard, blogger and occasional writer (which he should do more of – he’s pretty good at it). He’s responsible for the colorful version of my blog tour page (thank you, Green), and he enjoys TV, movies and games, and all sorts of tech-geekery, which makes his opinions on Green Embers Recommends an entertaining read. And, considering I’m all over geekery, our show, the Not-So-Shocking News Dialogues, are more like conversational windows into an organized nerd fest. Which is fantastic.
His motivation of his fellow friends and bloggers knows no bounds – and has come in many incarnations. I first met ‘Green’ as I often call him, through the Building Rome project. Its mission was simple: Rome was not built in a day. To achieve one’s goals, one needs to take it a day at a time, and Building Rome was a place for people of all walks of life to do that.
That Building Rome site had hiccups and challenges of its own, but Brad now runs it through his main site, Green Embers, as a weekly reminder and update. It is a delightful and friendly way to keep on track and enjoy the encouragement of your blogosphere friends – as well as encourage your own support network. I also look at it as a way of holding yourself accountable to your own goals, but learning to forgive oneself for missteps and setbacks.
In that vein, Brad has been a wonderful cheerleader as I ignore everyone and everything in the effort to publish and now market the book. So, head over to Green Embers and Green Embers Recommends for a dose of fabulousness – and tell Green I said hi!
