Not Everyone Can Be a Resume Writer

I really don’t care if you know that I am 46 years old. Dancing around age always seemed like such a waste of energy to me. When I was 16 years old, living in South Carolina and had the opportunity to get an I.D. which said I was 18, I only did because my friends all did it and started going out to clubs and bars. Okay, so there wasn’t a lot of clubs in Rock Hill, SC. Whatever 😉
Now, after half a lifetime has passed, I’m still not terribly stuck on my age. What’s more important is being able to produce a quality resume which adequately reflects the experiences and abilities I’ve obtained in my life. The first few times I attempted a CV, what transpired was pretty much a disaster. Then, a few years ago, a good friend suggested I check out a professional resume writer service and leave the nitty gritty details to the professionals.
Of course, did I listen, no. Not right away. I’d always been taught (incorrectly?) that if you want something done, do it yourself. Well, I was able to put together a passable resume, however, no one was overwhelmed with the layout or information that appeared on my stock, templated from Microsoft Word resumes.
Finally, back when having a foot on the rung of the corporate ladder seemed like the pathway I needed to be on, I opted to seek out a quality resume writer service. I’ve been looking for a copy of that resume I invested some good money in. Unfortunately, I think I might have lost it along the way at some point. If I do happen across it soon, look for a comment below with it attached so you can see just how amazing a final product you can get when you invest in quality professional services.

How Could Monetize a Video of Blue Footed Boobies?

Just a quickie post today before I get to brave the elements (and worse, holiday shoppers!) During my morning reading routine I came across this way too cute video of an actual mating dance between two Blue Footed Boobies. It is possibly the most bizarre and cutest thing I’ve seen in quite some time. Betting it will be for you as well. If you aren’t able to see the video, here’s the link to the Blue Footed Booby Mating Dance on YouTube.

Now, if plumdiggity, instead of just posting that video up on Youtube, had used, The Official Video Licensor, they might have been able to make some money.
I’m not sure how many views it will take, but if nearly 40,000 people are interested in the video content you create, you can bet some of them are going to be willing to pay to see it.
And this is where Vidli comes in. The company is nearing its launch and has opened up beta invitation sign ups. They are also looking for a Social Media Person to bring on board. As such they’ve concocted a unique contest for folks like me to garner support from great folks like you. If you can take 37 seconds or less and click through to sign up for a FREE beta invitation, you’d be doing me the HUGEST favor.
You won’t regret it. Honest. And think of all those adorable little blue footed boobies just waiting for your love and affection! 😉

Uhm, that’s a lot of people viewing a really funny and entertaining video of a kid bopping around to the sights and sounds of a Beyonce video.
What might have happened if Cory’s dad had helped me out by signing up for a free beta invite from and taken advantage of the Official Video Licensor’s ability to help you monetize your online videos?
Over 5 1/2 MILLION views? Thinking there’s some change to be made there!
