Day 364 – Thanks SMMOC and John Chow


Thanks to everyone who come out to support me.

I started this blog because of the inspiration and knowledge I gain from the Social Media Masters Mind of Orange County (special thanks to Bob Watson for creating and running this group). A single off-hand comment by me became an year long project where I learned so very much about blogging and a little about marketing.

Thanks to John Chow and his $1000 bet. Even when you lose a bet with John, everyone wins because of his Dot Com Lifestyle philosophy.

A very special thank you to Linda Abbit because she make me a certificate of excellence, which I will post on Monday.

Also, thanks to Buyyourties.com for providing many of my bow ties seen in this photo and throughout the year.

Day 196 – John Chow Wins

Yes indeed John Chow wins but was there any real doubt that he would. However, I continue to write on bow ties including the one I am wearing in the video from Buy Your Ties.  A lovely silk bow tie worn by me for the first time on this video.

Day 195 – Help is on the way

The nice folk at Buy Your Ties have ensured that I will not got without a bow tie despite John Chow’s $1,000 offer (see Day 189). I have been buying my bow ties from them for years and thought that I would pick a few more us. They were very helpful. Yes, they did give me some bow ties which was a very kind offer and just shows you that the people at Buy Your Ties care about what is happening with their customers.

Oh, by the way, this is my first reversible bow tie and of course Buy Yours Ties have them in both self-tied like me or pre-tied for those you who simple want to look good now.

Day 189 – The John Chow Chronicles

John Chow has upped the odds of his getting a photo of me without a bow tie.

Day 188 – John Chow vs Bow Tie


Day 174 – Social Media Saturday


So after the SMMOC MeetUp many of us head over to have lunch with John Chow’s Dot Com Pho OC. Here I am with Angela (@strawwitch), Garrett, Sacha (@SaschZamani).

Of course, John is still buying his time to get a photo of me with no bow tie before this 364 project is done.

Lunch with Sasha at the after SMMOC meetup luncheon with John Chow (seen in the background). SMMOC provides a place to talk about social media and ask questions. The lunch gives up some time to get together for more talking and connections.

Day 139 – Bow Tie vs. John Chow

So will John Chow be able to take a photo of me before this 365 project is complete? We will see.

Day 118 – Bow Tie and John Chow


At Pho Ba Co in Irvine

Had a great lunch with John (who gave me one of his books, seen here), Oscar, and Baker (who took the time to take this photos, thanks.)  Oh, and of course, thanks to both Pho Bac Co and Las Fajitas Grill where we all had lunch.
