CK Wylde1,228A Circle Share Of Crazy People - Also Known As WritersI've not really shared circles before but every time +Brian Buckley does it I end up with fantastic new people in my feed.  So I thought I would share my writer's circle with you all. In it you will find  a bunch of G+ Writers and people who have to do with writers (publishers for instance).  WarningI tried this a little earlier and had a couple of people say they couldn't see the people in the circle. If you can't please let me know, I'm trying to figure out why that might be happening. Also, if you happen to know why that happens I am all ears.If you want to be included in this circle, also plese let me know.  #writers   #circleshare   #circles  2013-11-18 20:32:284401519

Simona AN23,183+Todaysmemory THANK YOU CircleSince last year, I started to post memories of the day - celebrations, great people in painting, sculpture, music, dance, literature, film, science, etc. A tribute to the people who have left a mark in history, an international celebration, all with a short summary. I named these posts Today's Memory. When I saw that my memories captured attention, I create a page, +Todaysmemory (with big help from my friend +Angela Ghinea) and I discovered a lot of people with the same tastes and posts.Here's a BIG THANK YOU Circle with the best friends and Sources of +Todaysmemory.  A group of extremely interesting people, if you add them you won't regret!If you like the memories, I invite you to send, with hashtag #todaysmemory  and curator me, +Simona AN everything you think deserves your tribute!

Nina Pelletier11,765I have been requested to share my writers circle many times over the last year, but I never felt right doing it. After 2 emails I received yesterday asking so kindly that I share it yet again, I figured it's time to do so.I have over 500 writers in my writers circle because, hey, that's why I'm here right? But sadly only 500 of them can be shared at once. So you won't get all of the wonderful writerly people I have met on this lovely world we call Google+, but here are 500 of them.  Enjoy and share.If I've missed any writers, please feel free to add them in the comments below.Thank you to this awesome community of literary quirkiness and genius. ♥  #writershelpingwriters   #writers  2012-09-12 15:13:0750121411
Don Sturgill57This Writer's Circle probably needs to be edited, but it's a start. Do you have a list of favorite writers on Google+ to share? Please do.2012-08-27 20:46:3870000
Meilani MacDonald2,935Small Business circle 2 of 2Hello small business peeps! I'm a small biz person and naturally I want to connect with other small biz owners. I really feel we all have so much to share with each other and to learn from one another as we navigate this world called Google+ that provides us with so many great tools and resources to support our small biz efforts. I also think it's a good thing to support each other, and lift each other up as we work towards our goals. So I've been collecting small biz people and shared small biz & entrepreneurs circles, because those are the people I most want in my own circles, to follow, to connect with, and to support. I have 700+ small bizzes in my circle, so I've split it into two circles to share with you. This is #2 of the 2. Let's hear it for small business!Btw, speaking of supporting small bizzes, I host a TGIF Biz Networking Hangout every Friday at 4pm pst, now a Hangout on Air. It is a chance to give yourself and your biz a little promo, and I feature special guests who are small biz owners and who have all kinds of good advice and info to share with other small biz owners. Please check my profile for more info or to watch last Friday's episode, where we talked about QR codes and great ideas for how to use them, and also talked about the value of keeping content fresh on your blogs and web sites, and when and why to blog, or not to blog. #smallbusiness #entrepreneur #sharedcircles +CircleCount +Shared Circles Shared a Circle with You +Shared a Circle with you2012-05-28 18:24:39330211318
Rob Gordon22,157*Entrepreneurs, Self-Employed & Small Business OwnersUPDATED SHARED CIRCLE: Part 1 of 2: A through L (by last name).Link to Part (M-Z):         http://goo.gl/0Fcg1Link to Supplemental 1: http://goo.gl/AXXrWLink to Supplemental 2: http://goo.gl/TZKKeLike to Supplemental 3: http://goo.gl/3x6hINOTE:  This circle is no longer maintained in its present form but is still a good place to start if you are looking for entrepreneurs to follow and connect with here.  It has mostly been replace with a Google+ community of the same name that you can find at http://goo.gl/ejG9P**********************This is the most recent update to the popular "entrepreneurs" circle that posted a few months ago. As you can see, it has gotten bigger than 500 people so I have had to split it alphabetically into two parts. These two circles includes the self employed, small business owners, independent contractors, small startup companies and pretty much anyone trying to make it outside of the traditional economy.This is different from the other business circles of this type in that it doesn't include too many of the "celebrity entrepreneurs" and instead has mostly people with their own business or venture. There are more than 800 people here, but this has been reviewed extensively since it was last published -lots of fantastic new people have been added, and some have been dropped - mostly because they don't interact much. The end result is a circle of really awesome business people who actively interact with others here and have a small business or entreprenueral mindset.This is a really diverse group and includes entrepreneurs of all stripes - some have well established ventures and are wildly successful, others are just getting started and haven't made it yet. As can be expected, it is a little tech heavy, but represents most industries and many different types of business. There are even a handful of people here who have traditional jobs, but seem to have an interest in small business issues and always seem welcome to help entrepreneurial efforts. The people in these circles post all manner of things - not just business, but all are smart and interesting people so I recommend that you check this out.I do want to add the disclaimer that this is in no way "definitive" - there are millions of entrepreneurs on Google+ and this is just a tiny fraction of them - the ones I have curated. It seems that about two seconds after I publish this I always remember someone I should have included so just me know if you think you should be here. I republish this periodically and generally add everyone who comments on the post.As with all circles of this size I would use some discretion in adding this - either update your existing circle, pick and choose the ones you like or use these as a trial circles - whatever works for you. I'm not even sure Google will let you add all this many names at once so you may have to come back if you want to add all of them. The technology for this is not perfect, but I am trying to do my part to help build a highly interconnected community of entrepreneurs here on Google+.I hope you find the people in this circle interesting.RobReshares welcome and appreciatedIMPORTANT: You don't want to follow people based on where their last name fits in the alphabit do you? Make sure you also take a look at the second part of this list:LINK TO PART II (M-Z): http://goo.gl/0Fcg1#smallbusiness2012-04-18 18:49:234401197169

Gabriel Fitzpatrick3,746Writers CircleA couple people have asked me to share a circle of writers because there apparently aren't enough of those. This is the first full one, and contains most of the writers whose posts and content I've found interesting and engaging (or at very least who haven't been so insufferable as to warrant an uncircling ^.^) If you aren't here, you may very well be in the second one. Don't jump to any conclusions :)2012-03-26 22:19:06499983
Meilani MacDonald1,201If the Circle Fits, Share It! - Entrepreneurs, Freelancers and Small BusinessWow, where to begin? This is exactly the circle I was looking for: entrepreneurs, freelancers and small business. I'll begin with a thanks to +Rahul Roy, whose always helpful posts of resources for new and wanting to be more active plussers pointed the way to www.CircleCount.com. That site turned out to be a great resource for finding shared circles defined by interest. There, I found +Rob Gordon's awesome entrepreneurs, freelancers and small business circle. I know it's a quality circle, as I noticed many of the folks in it are already in my circles, and I generally circle people who make posts I find to be useful, educational and enlightening. I hope you will find them as useful and enlightening as I have! #smallbusiness #freelance #professional #entrepreneur2012-03-24 00:26:5250111715
Rob Gordon18,830Entrepreneurs, Self Employed & Small Business.

This is different from the other business circles of this type in that it doesn't include too many of the "celebrity entrepreneurs" and instead has mostly people with their own small business or venture.

There are even a handful of people here who have traditional jobs, but seem to have an interest in entrepreneurial and small business issues. The professionals in this circle post all manner of things - not just business, but all are smart and interesting people so I recommend that you at least take a look. As with any circle of this size I would use some discretion in adding this - either pick and choose the ones you like or use it as a trial circle - whatever method works for you. I also recently learned that you can save circles to your Google contacts so you can save this information there even if you don't want to use this toward your 5000 limit. I hope you find the people in this circle interesting. I certainly do. RobReshares welcome and appreciated#sharedcircles#smallbusiness #entrepreneurs #startup2012-03-13 20:32:12500663852

"We pave the sunlit path toward justice together, brick by brick. This is my brick."
- Apple's CEO, Tim Cook, on letting it be publicly known that he's gay, something he had never previously spoken about, even as it was never a secret. "With his essay," The New York Times reports, "Mr. Cook becomes the most prominent gay man in the corporate world, joining a very short list of openly gay executives at public companies." Some 83 percent of gay, lesbian and bisexual people, the article continued, feel they must hide aspects of their identity at work.

"With his essay," The New York Times reports, "Mr. Cook becomes the most prominent gay man in the corporate world, joining a very short list of openly gay executives at public companies." Some 83 percent of gay, lesbian and bisexual people, the article continued, feel they must hide aspects of their identity at work.

It was great to get back to Las Vegas on Saturday for a return visit to Barbara and +Steve Rother's  VirtualLight Broadcast! Once again, I was chatting with Sandie Sedgbeer about writing and creativity...but this time the focus was on "birthing your book...even if you don't know what it's about." If you need some book-birthing help and missed the live show, catch the video recording at https://vimeo.com/110068810.

Leaving San Diego in the morning for L.A. on this three-city tour that began with an appearance on +Steve Rother's VirtualLight Broadcast out of Las Vegas. The only disappointments in this amazing trip have been not enough time to offer more private coaching sessions and a missed opportunity to meet up with MoonQuest mega-fan Lorri Greene during the San Diego leg of the trip. The biggest highlight, of course, will be seeing my daughter in L.A. on Thursday!

One city down, two to go. Just now leaving Las Vegas after what everyone tells me was a super-successful appearance on yesterday's Virtual Light Broadcast with Barbara and +Steve Rother, Sandra Sedgbeer and Janelle Collard. (If you missed the live show -- I was talking about writing and birthing your books -- watch this space for the replay link.)

Next stops: San Diego and then Los Angeles, to do some in-person coaching, for some Q'ntana Trilogy Movies business and to see my daughter. Looking forward!!

Off to Las Vegas in the morning. I'll be spending the day in the car (with a lunch stop, I hope at a favorite Flagstaff eatery – Wildflower Bread Company). Friday is a designated Fun with Photography day (watch for some of my photos to be posted here). And Saturday, I'll be returning to Barbara & Steve Rother's VirtualLight Broadcast to talk about how to birth your book (even if you don't know what it's about) with interviewer extraordinaire Sandra Sedgbeer. I expect to be live at noon PT and will post the link as soon as I have one. If you miss the live show, the segment will be on YouTube soon after, and I'll post that link too, once it's available.

Spending the afternoon packing (love traveling/hate packing) and gearing up for my two-state, three-city mini-tour that launches tomorrow. 
• First stop is Las Vegas for a return appearance on Barbara and +Steve Rother's Virtual Light Broadcast on Saturday (watch my Timeline for time/details/links); I'll be talking about birthing your book with Sandie Sedgbeer and I'm so excited to be back on the show. Sandie is a great interviewer and it's always fun to reconnect with Steve and Barbara and their global audience!
• Then it's off to San Diego and L.A. to offer a few rare in-person coaching sessions and for some family visits. If you want one of those coaching slots, let me know. I might still be able to squeeze you in!

My dreamtime life is profound, if baffling at times. With some dreams, though, the message is immediately clear. Last night's, for example, was an unequivocal shove from my Muse in the direction of not one of my books-in-progress but both of them! So, on a distinctly autumnal Albuquerque day, I have parked myself at one of my favorite local Starbucks to work, latte-fueled, on the more immediately pressing of the two.
• BTW, if you're in Albuquerque and have been looking for a signed copy of one of my books, feel free to stop by the ABQ Uptown Starbucks to say hi. I have a few copies of each (except the temporarily sold-out Dialogues with the Divine) in the trunk, and I'd be happy to sign one for you. I expect to be here until 5-5:30pm, but if it's close to the wire, message me first.

I spent all day thinking it was Saturday. Apparently, it's not. (This is what happens when you work on your own!!)

Apparently, there's no escape...at least not for me. Every online quiz I take that has anything to do with job, profession, career or passion comes up with this same answer! What about you? - http://bitecharge.com/play/guessjob?sess=q1#q1

My newest book was a sort of birthday present to myself. How could it not be with a title like “Birthing Your Book…Even If You Don’t Know What It’s About,” and when it came out just days before a major landmark birthday last week!? It’s also my 11th(!) book and my 5th(!) for #writers   – itself landmark achievement!!

If you’re a #writer  (or love a few enough to support them in their creative endeavors), check it out – in paperback on Amazon (www.amazon.com/author/markdavidgerson), from select other online booksellers, from my website (www.markdavidgerson.com/bookstore) or from your favorite ebook store. 

Read it, and I guarantee that you’ll never feel the same about writing again!

BTW, I took this selfie where much of the book was written: a coffee shop (can you guess which one?)

Normally, when you order books from my website, they're drop-shipped to you, which means I can't sign them. Right now, though, I have a (very) few copies of each of my titles, which means that if you want a book signed to you – or to someone else as a gift – now is the time to order, while I still have copies I can sign. 

To get your signed book, go to www.markdavidgerson.com/bookstore today and order your book(s), then private message me to let me know how and to whom you want your book(s) signed. If you wait more than a few days, contact me first – to make sure I still have copies to sign for/to you.

If you're outside the U.S., don't bother with my website, as it's not set up to take non-U.S. credit cards. Instead, contact me directly and I will tell you how to proceed.

If you happened to have been born on this day in 1582, then you weren't born on this day -- at least not if you lived in Italy, Spain, Poland or Portugal. Because of the implementation of the Gregorian calendar in those countries that year, there was no Oct. 8, 1582. In fact, the calendar jumped from Oct. 4 to 15, and the missing days were lost to history.

After a week's birthday hiatus, I returned to work today on my 12th(!!) book, a new memoir focused on my journeys with my Muse and on the importance of writing in my life (which is pretty much all I know about the new book so far, other than its working title!). Meantime, my Books 1-11 are selling nicely! Look them up on Amazon (www.amazon.com/author/markdavidgerson), on select other bookseller sites, on my website (www.markdavidgerson.com/books) or on your favorite ebook store site.

It had been decades (more than I care to count!) since I'd last read Patrick Dennis's Auntie Mame, even though I've seen the film a good dozen times since in the intervening years. Then a few weeks ago, I suddenly got it into my head to read the book again. Having just finished, I can't help myself: I'm going to watch the movie AGAIN!! After all these years, it remains one of my favorites!

Do dads still hand out cigars to celebrate a new addition to the family? Given that virtual cigars are much healthier than those found in a tobacconist's, allow me to pass out a humidor-load of e-cigars to celebrate the newest addition to my literary family: my newest book – Birthing Your Book...Even if You Don't Know What It's About, which dropped out of my creative birth canal and into published form a week or so ago! Look for it on Amazon (www.amazon.com/author/markdavidgerson), on my website (www.markdavidgerson.com/bookstore) or from your favorite ebook store.

I have only one in-person coaching slot (Oct. 29) left for my L.A. visit later this month, though I still have a couple left for Las Vegas (Oct. 24), San Diego (Oct. 27) and Orange County (Oct 28). This is a rare opportunity, as I do most of my sessions via phone or Skype these days. Drop me a line ASAP if you'd like to snap up one of these last spots.

It's still a few hours until my birthday, but the greetings are already pouring in – have been pouring in all day today – and I just want to express how grateful I am to you for your good wishes and kind thoughts. I'm especially grateful to those of you who have taken a few extra moments to share with me how my work continues to inspire you. It is always powerfully gratifying to hear that.

You know, I thought this might be a traumatic birthday, as I ease into the big Six-Oh in just a couple of hours. But I'm remarkably peaceful about it. In fact I'm more than peaceful. I'm grateful – for all the gifts, miracles and opportunities that this remarkable and remarkably unexpected journey has blessed me with and continues to bless me with. I have no doubt that those miracles and blessings will continue to unfold and multiply, and I'm ready for the next decade to be thebest ... more »

On the eve of a landmark birthday, I share some thoughts about birthdays past, from Acts of Surrender: A Writer's Memoir
"Birthdays for me have rarely been about crowds and parties. Rather, they have nearly always been about shift and transformation. Shortly before my twenty-first, I came out as a gay man; shortly after, I moved into my own apartment. Just before my thirtieth, I lost my mother’s wedding band — a symbolic break from the past and from her influence. I had been wearing it as a memento since her death six months earlier; it slipped off my finger at Stonehenge. I arrived in Nova Scotia on my fortieth birthday and knew, a year later,  that it was time to leave. A few weeks before my forty-second birthday, I would launch a new life in Sedona; four weeks after my fiftieth, that life would abruptly come to an end."
