Getting A Little Bit Of Love; Interviewed Again

Posted by on Jun 3, 2011

What a strange week this seems to have been. It started out with my buying my first couple of pairs of shorts ever, with my wife’s help, and finding out that I can actually wear a waist size of 42; I haven’t worn a size 42 waist in 20 years! Working out seems to be doing at least part of the job; glucose isn’t down though.

Then a consulting gig I’m supposed to be working hasn’t started yet; I haven’t even heard from the client in about a week. That’s how it goes sometimes when you’re an independent consultant, which is why I was so key on my earlier post this week about getting some money upfront; it’s not always the fault of the people trying to do work for you.

And now this; I’ve been interviewed again, this time by Christian of Smart Boy Designs. I was kind of surprised because I actually did the interview back in April, then forgot about it until I was going through old emails yesterday and started to wonder about it. And then there it was this morning; nice timing, eh?

Of course, it was also fun being a part of Ileane’s Basic Blog Tips this week with my post on 5 Ways Your Blog Might Be Irritating People. I really put out for that post because I always believe that you give as much to others as you’d give to yourself, and if you can you should give more since you’re reaching out to a new audience that you’re hoping you can drive to your site.

All that and tonight I’ll be staying in a hotel about 5 minutes from my house in a room with a jacuzzi… all by myself. My wife is holding a large garage sale with her friends and asked if I not be present; I can take a hint. 🙂 So I’ll be pampered tonight on my own, then heading to the casino in the morning. Yes, I do live a strange life; but it’s pretty fun as well. Is it any wonder why I smile so much?

I just read the interview and really enjoyed it. I must say that my most fave answer was what makes you happy – that was the best. I commented on the interview 🙂 it was a longer post.

Have a good weekend.

Mitch Mitchell:

Thanks Gabriella; I had a good time with it.

June 3rd, 2011 | 12:19 PM

She threw you out of the house? LOL Oh, you poor fellow. Surprised there wasn’t a casino involved or was there?

June 3rd, 2011 | 9:33 AM
Mitch Mitchell:

The casino part is Saturday after I stay at the Hampton Inn on Route 31. I could have stayed at Turning Stone but it costs more than double what I’m paying tonight. And then roller derby; that should be interesting as this time Mel’s skating.

Dennis Edell@ Direct Sales Marketing:

Perhaps shes selling all your stuff. lol

June 3rd, 2011 | 2:27 PM
Mitch Mitchell:

You were almost right, Dennis. I found some of my books in boxes she hadn’t covered ready to go. lol

June 3rd, 2011 | 2:53 PM
Dennis Edell@ Direct Sales Marketing:

Ah see, next time she gives you the boot, double back and play hide and seek…..or rather, hide and peek! lol

June 4th, 2011 | 9:27 AM
Mitch Mitchell:

Believe it or not Dennis, there’s really no way to sneak up on my house unless you don’t mind going through the woods, and if you know me you know that even in my neighborhood you’re not getting me in there!

That was a nice interview with Christian, and I enjoyed your post over at Ileane’s. Have fun on your night out. With such fun activities, you did leave the laptop at home, right?

June 3rd, 2011 | 8:54 PM
Mitch Mitchell:

Vernessa, at the last moment I did leave the laptop home, figuring I could access pretty much anything through the phone. Turns out I was partially correct, but I had a lot of fun with the jacuzzi. 😉

June 5th, 2011 | 12:54 AM

What a fine week it has been, watching you have all this fun!
That interview with Christian is really good.

Enjoy the festivities!

Mitch Mitchell:

Thanks Mitch. It’s been a really strange week overall, and this weekend was even stranger at times.

June 5th, 2011 | 12:54 AM

Always love having me a little Mitch over at Smart Boy Designs. Appreciated your input friend. You made for a great interviewee!

Love the pic. Go RedSox!

June 3rd, 2011 | 10:46 PM
Mitch Mitchell:

Thanks Christian; I had a great time answering your questions. Interviews folks; I’m here. lol

grace @ wedding favors:

Hey Mitch! 😀 Happiness can indeed be found in just simple things. I love how you have answered that. I so enjoy chocolates, too! 😀

June 4th, 2011 | 4:43 AM
Mitch Mitchell:

Thanks Grace. I’m wishing I had some chocolate right now, but then I’m always wishing that. lol

June 5th, 2011 | 12:56 AM

Nice one Mitch, by the way, I just saw that you have implemented Google+ button. This will be very important in the future. And another by the way, you look good with Red Socks shirt!

June 5th, 2011 | 2:59 AM
Mitch Mitchell:

Thanks Carl. lol As for the Gllgoe +, Sire came up with the idea, and though I haven’t written about it I figured why not.

June 5th, 2011 | 11:35 AM

It will be a good idea, actually for first time Google have mention on the official blog that there will be close relationship between social marketing and SEO in the near future.

June 6th, 2011 | 3:11 AM
Mitch Mitchell:

It should be interesting to see where this all goes, Carl. We all know that someone is going to try to game the system.

June 6th, 2011 | 4:20 PM

I had a good time enjoying the interview, Mitch. You didn’t live a strange life, you live a wonderful life.I’m jealous of you…;)

June 5th, 2011 | 11:06 PM
Mitch Mitchell:

Thanks Andrew, but I’m jealous of Will Smith. lol

June 6th, 2011 | 1:39 AM

A strange life but a fun life. I think variety is the key to happiness.
My wife is having a girlie night tonight and I’ve been ‘invited’ – code for go and walk the dog…

June 7th, 2011 | 5:10 AM
Mitch Mitchell:

Matt, that’s funny as sin! I get those rarely, but when I do, my wife knows I’m heading to the casino.

June 7th, 2011 | 11:53 AM

Just read it. Nice interview Mitch. I especially liked comments on your approach to life (laugh a lot and be honest in writing). I never got bored reading your content mainly because every single post is out of own personal experience.

June 7th, 2011 | 2:53 PM
Mitch Mitchell:

Thanks Ajith. When I think I’m starting to take life too seriously I try to find ways to alleviate stress and just stay on an even keel. That’s why I try to see most of my encounters as stories of some sort; always gives me new perspectives, and of course stuff to write about.
