integration with @globalniche

co-existing in STEP 4 ... where the facets of shirlnutkin (shirlnutkin au naturel, once r|cat and now r|cat transformed, anthrocubeologist, auntie, etc.) hang out together, it is where GlobalNiche's SUM-it UP program step 4 badge for integration (paraphrased below) is born -
using my web platform to distribute (aka syndicate) - or slice & dice - my shirlnutkin-ness across the web + world to service my vision to serve others
SIDE NOTE: know and load up your devices, apps, and tools ... i have an android phone, an iPad, a laptop(s) and a desktop.  i am learning that with this integration step, i want to make sure apps, such as hootsuite, are readily accessible on my phone and iPad. where there are add-ons to chrome and mozilla, i press the button and get them on my menu/toolbar.

tidbits of badge-worthiness ... step 4 is about connecting my shirlnutkin-ness with the variety of available social media cultures. while i am certainly just starting out, here are my starting tidbits -
  • shirlnutkin blog ... my posts roll over to @eco_banshee, which is when i first started on twitter - whatever that meant
  • anthrocubeology blog (over here) ... my posts roll over to @anthrocubeology, which i started specific for my anthrocubeologist endeavors of exploring and researching workspace cultural shifts
  • for the love of vogs (over here) ... my posts roll over to our facebook page. while i have posted once a month, i intend to post at least twice a month given my reboot(!).
  • facebook ... somewhat consistently, when i blog, i will post the links on facebook, along with a little message of sorts.
  • google+ ...  got started on google+, more so, thanks to globalniche. not yet as consistent in distributing info onto google+ as i am with facbeook.
  • about.me ... while not quite integration and more step 2 of SUM-it UP, about.me is where i make my statements about my integrated self.
  • hootsuite ... having just started (again thanks to globalniche), i have a couple of social networks connected, allowing me to cross-post a blog post.
  • pinterest ... started shirlnutkin at the nudge of globalniche. i am just starting out and getting the hang of it, slowly but surely. including my blog post from back in the day when i was in san diego prepping to relocate to the bay area was a blast! since posting these, i will be adding good ol' hashtags, as well as continuing on with other blogs.
background on previous steps ...  as i have shared about GlobalNiche (on web, twitter, facebook, pinterest), in late february i signed up for SUM-it UP, a 6 week on-line study group. as mentioned in a previous post, @zibbyz is the fairy godmother who brought globalniche into my life! as part of learning more about globalniche, i checked out slideshare. co-founder with tara agacayak, anastasia ashman, shares more on slideshare.

weeks 1 and 2 included delving into vision & goals and platform. and that resulted in not only reconnecting with my early saturday morning 1994 epiphany but also a big puffy heart shout out from globalniche (blush).

week 3 - inventory - was a doozy! it is the step where i looked at "stuff" (and i gots me a shit load of lots of stuff) and the the cumulative impact of my stuff. here is what my inventory looked like back in late march. as i have continued on, i have more stuff - HOWEVER, now my stuff is being corralled into what have been my areas of interest. (more on that in a later post)

reconnecting with my "selves"
as i integrate 
myself with others
(on to steps 5 & 6)

got blog(s)? time for me to reboot

yes, i have blogs to which i contribute - over at shirlnutkin, anthrocubeology, and for the love of vogs - however, it turns out i have been bloggity-blog-blog remiss. i have been incubating.

during a little furlough (2 hours only) last week, i realized it's time to exercise my fingers and (re)regroup. and for today's furlough time ...

... this is my reboot. i am regrouping with a dash of globalniche.

remiss blogs & math ... three blogs and nineteen posts since september 2012 ... WTF?! i have been a bit remiss with my writing - at shirlnutkin with seven posts since the beginning of the year, a total of six posts at anthrocubeology since september 2012, and six posts at for the love of vogs since generalissima joanne created our blog in october 2012. geez! i wrote daily with reverb10 in december 2010.


regrouped in feburary ...  i posted about regrouping 2013 refresh and reignite, where i shared my mash-up of
bringing together my practices of your heart's desire, tiny habits, and 3 words.

globalniche ... it's early may, and my previous blog post was in late march. in late march, i shared a part of my experience with GlobalNiche, the SUM-it UP 6 week program that i began. (thanks to the suggestion of pamela). what an on-going and welcomed whirlwind experience that has continued to inspire me.

pensive, incubating shirlnutkin ... i get pensive, REALLY pensive. and i dream alot, where my dreams are pretty fun, crazy, vivid, and even telling of some solution to a problem i've been pondering.  during these times, i surprise myself with something(s) that just pop out. it's like a bunch of creative juices bubbling to the top. perhaps it's because of incubation, as described here at psychology today's enhancing creative incubation -
"Ideas come at these surprising times because of incubation—when you take time off from work, it frees up your conscious mind and allows your subconscious mind to “incubate” on the problem."
- and from a recent podcast, it's time to "GET ON WITH IT" - as nicely stated advice to sugata mitra, which he shared in his TED talk ... within a different context ... however it is still all about creating!
