Soon the dreaded 500+ designation will be on my Linked-In profile. Probably fifty of my old friends are no longer relevant. Some have retired. Some have left the industry. Sadly, people fall out of touch over the years.
You may not remember me, but …
On a blog, you can never have too many followers. Linked-In is different. I like to restrict it to people I have met once or twice, and maybe worked together. Online introductions are fine, too. I am pretty aggressive about writing, “I liked your article, let’s keep in touch.”
If I am slow to accept your connection request, please don’t be offended. Send me a note reminding me where we have worked together. This way, if someone asks me about you, I have something to say.
