As we kick off a new year, 2011, I thought I would share some information with the partners around the world based on some questions I have seen and received.  Back in my, “What am I thinking? Here’s where you can find out ,” post here on my blog, I told you about the various places online where I share information and resources for you, including: my blog, my Twitter account, my LinkedIn account, and more.  As stated in that post, the reason for calling this out is that some partners may follow just one of my online locations, but not more than one.  While this is perfectly fine to do, one thing to keep in mind is that I do share different information across these various resources, so if you are only following one of them, you may miss some of the information I am trying to share with you.

For this blog post, I thought I would share a handful of my Twitter tweets from just the last two weeks of December with you here on the blog so you can see a sample of what you may be missing if you only subscribe to my blog, but not my Twitter account as well:
