Friday Funnies – ‘Cause I Was A Goat Herder

OK, OK, I wasn’t really a goat herder. At least not in the literal sense. It was just a little fun I had with Linkedin.  If you don’t know what Linkedin is, well, neither do a lot of the people who actually use it.

How do I know that? Well, because once in a while I like to test the efficacy of certain operating procedures in my world. This time I wondered about the effectiveness of my notifications on Linkedin, so I made a couple of changes to my profile.  I changed my name to Shelley Miller and I ramped up my rather average marketing title to ‘Goat Herder’.  I also changed my location to Montana for good measure and then I kept that profile up for two weeks.

Do you know what kind of response I got to all these changes in my life? Nothing. Nada. Not even a blip on any social media radar. Is it me? Do I have to really, really up my game to make it in business social media?

Why not? Apparently I can be anything I want on Linkedin anyway. I’m seriously considering – ‘Fire Hula Hooping Rocket Scientist’, tagline: “We light the fire under your landing pads”!

Maybe it’s better to leave plain marketing as is and return to Memey Vice. Let’s face it, this post has gone to the dogs anyway and maybe even a monkey too, but strangely, no goats…

Reason has its moments… Guess which one works for Linkedin?

Well played sharon

Don’t ever underestimate a woman, dog… Just sayin’

ya gotta be kidding

Yeah…. no words. Just backing away slowly.


I always know how to work a Friday!


Whatever gets you over the humps.

Have an awesome final August weekend.  Cheers!




About Blog Woman!!!

Once in a while I can rock a thought. I simply believe in what I stand up for. I'd most like people to know that surviving the trials of mountains and monsters is more than resilience - it’s a path to your destiny. On a mostly weekly basis I throw out a grab-bag of facts, ideas or creativity; like a box of chocolates wrapped in ribbons of occasional profanity.... In other words, it's my party I can fun if I want to. So, waddya say, can we talk?

    Thanks for the Friday morning chuckles. I don’t think goat herder is in high demand…anywhere. I think they have dogs that do that. But Fire Hula Hooping Rocket Scientist? Now there’s something I can instill in my kids to become. And maybe LinkedIn will get their act together by then and know how to use algorithms to brings us all together one crazy career at a time. Happy Hump Friday! (yeah, because a camel reference is good any old day of the week).

    LOL. I often pad my list of accomplishments by including some things my son told his preschool teacher I did. He told them I was an Olympic bobsledder. Then he said I was a wrestler in the WWE. I’ve always thought that if I tell enough people it may come to be believed but it turns out my greatest accomplishment is as a Mom who tends to repeat herself. Did I mention I repeat myself? 😉

    Happy Friday. Sending you much love!

    Hilarious! I love that you did this and that you reported your findings. I sometimes feel ancient because social media can still feel like this foreign idea that I’m forced to wrap my brain around.

    • Diahann! Hello! Yeah, sometimes chaos inspires one to test all kinds of things. LOL. What a another year of going around the bend, but it’s all been good and exciting. I hope all is well with you and I’m looking forward to heading to your place to catch up!


  10. Bwaaahaaahaaaa! It’s not Friday anymore, but you still had me in stitches, soul sister! ❤ So tell, me, when you herd your goats, do you get to carry one of those curly sticks like shepherds uses? 😉 ❤ xoxo
