Making A Point - The Power Point Way!

Today, I spoke on the phone with Margaret Rome from Baltimore. She shared with me that she was doing a presentation tomorrow for the WCR called "What's A Blog Anyway?" I decided to try something that has not been done yet here on our Active Rain Blogs.

Margaret sent me a copy of her PowerPoint Presentation, I told her I would try to upload it to Google or YouTube as a video. Then we could post it in a Blog on Active Rain. Well I found out tonight that it's just not possible. Let me backup just a bit. Margaret actually called me today because I had made a comment in a post earlier that, "Time is precious and priceless, therefore it is the greatest gift we can give!" She was just calling me to say thanks. Little did she know, that phone call made my day! She could have just commented back, but she took the time and called me, and left a very nice message on my voice mail.

So after we talked, and when I found that her presentation couldn't be uploaded to either of the video formats, I was bound and determined to invest the "Time" to somehow get it done. It has to be possible. I just couldn't let her down, I had to figure this out! Well 3 hours later, I am happy to say that it appears to have paid off. This may very well be the first ever Power Point Presentation on an Active Rain Blog. Imagine the possibilities!!

So without any further delay, I'm proud to present, Margaret Rome's March 13th, 2008 presentation entitled "What's A Blog Anyway?" I know that she and her presentation will be a hit. Please wish her the best as she goes to educate the WCR members in Baltimore! They will get to see the "Power" in her "Points" about Blogs and Blogging! This is yet another small step for man (and women), and another large step for Bloggers.


Thanks Margaret for your kind and thoughtful words today, and for the motivation and inspiration
you gave me to not just give up and make an excuse, but to find a way, and get it done! That's what friends are for! You really made my day, I hope this makes yours! Congratulations and Best of Luck at WCR today!! :-)

Jan E - if there is any way I can get out there, I will.  We may have to do a combination of webinars and seminars and maybe even some textinars...(ok...time for bed...I'm losing it!!)  LOL!~  You will be at the top of my list to come and see. Thanks for all the appreciation!  :-)

Jeff -  I have to admit, when you get in front of 50 - 60 people, you better be prepared for anything.  The fact that she gave hand-outs probably made it seem like much less detail, and gave them something to walk away with and think about.  I know that people really only hear about 7-10% of what we say anyway, it's always good to leave them something behind to soak in later.

(Now they'll have it online to refer to if they want...)  Just my .02 cent contribution..... LOL!~  :-)))))

Eloise - isn't it incredible how we meet and are somehow all connected together?  This is such a great time to be alive and enjoy all the benefits of technology and how it is making the world such a small and manageable place.  I am in awe of all the things that happen here, and how we are all touched and connected by one way or another.  Thanks for your wonderful comment, I am off to finish the instructions for this, so other can use this technology too!  Have a great week!  :-)

This is great!  I used a ton of power point when I was in academia and I do listing presentations on it. I often wanted to include what I created in power point in my blogs, but didn't know how!  Thanks! I wouldn't use it that often, but there are times when I really want to include a few slides.

Ruthmarie - I see this as a tool that many of us in the industry can use on our Blogs both in and out of the "rain". I am working on a tutorial that I will be posting soon.  Just trying to simplify it right now.  Thanks for the positive comment and support!  :-)

Rosemary - if you are using IE as a browser, just click on the magnifying glass, and move the little view slider to the right, the powerpoint slide will be enlarged.  If you are using FF (Firefox) it should be working ok...  LMK!!

Brad, It took you one night to do the power point and it takes three days to explain it. Hope everyone appreciates all your work.

Yes, I adore Sharon and we had a wonderful conversation last night. I left you a message but know how busy you are right now. Much continued success.
