A place to hold articles I want to read (temp) and articles I've read and want to re-read or share (perm) until beBee comes up with a facility for this.

    So you want to produce a little Honey?There are those on beBee who are so adept at blogging and publishing that this little instructional post may seem a little elementary. But there are many Bees out there who have never written a long post or even a wordy Buzz and this post is...

    @Pamela L. Williams thanks for that and some very helpful tips ... after this the bees will be buzzing with excitement and as @Dean Owen mentioned the idea of the commercial break....he's a closet ad guy is he not?

    An excellent resource, overall, @Pamela L. Williams, especially the many screenshots! Thanks for all the work it took to put this together.

    I have discovered there is also an ideal order of actions for buzzes: 1) add header image, 2) add your intro comment (including credit to the content creator) and do NOT hit share, 3) add Link to original location in the comments box, 4) hit SHARE to select 1, 2, or 3 hives where you want to share the buzz. DON'T add your comment first, and DON'T just click on link symbol first, because you won't get a chance to add an image after that.

    Thank you @Jim Murray! It may be useful to explain sone of the terminology you use ( type tools, hard return) for those of us that don't know.

    27/08/2016 #17 Charles David Upchurch
    Some very good suggestions, @Jim Murray. I agree with your additions, also, @David Grinberg.

    One question, Jim. While I am familiar with the desktop publishing terms "hard return" and "soft return" ('returns' coming from "carriage returns" on typewriters and on the old dot-matrix printers), perhaps you could explain that the "hard" return is when you hit enter twice as opposed to the "soft" which is created by hitting enter just once (and the latter does not always appear as a new line on the editing screen in Pulse, Wordpress, or Producer). Unless I have totally misunderstood, sir.

    @Jim Murray, I love you tips on writing. Here's one to add. I ran across an app that helps you build a proper rant. It's call Grumblery. See it at the Apples store. Cheersw!
    David Grinberg
    27/08/2016 #15 David Grinberg
    Good advice, @Jim Murray. I would also add this to make long-form posts more reader-friendly: 1) Use compelling photos, images. 2) Use bullets to break up lists or make your main points. 3) Use sub-headlines to break up paragraphs. 4) Use the big point size and/or quotation readout on important messaging (which breaks up text). I always try to use all the aforementioned techniques. I hope they're working!

    24/08/2016 #23 Paul "Pablo" Croubalian
    #22 Me too. One thing I would suggest is that when we share on behalf of the author, we include a comment saying which hive we shared it to. That way, others will know and share to some other one.

    #20 Actually, Mags, opening up to more than 3 hives is not the best idea. The spam-potential is too high. You can always ask others to share in other hives. Come to think of it, if you wanted to post in, say, 6 hives, list the other three in a comment. Someone else will do it for you.

    I'm not sure whether that lead-in image is *supposed* to be literary irony or whether it's just unintentionally ironic. To start an article with a title like this with one of those inspirational cards-cum meme thingies that are so prevalent on LI these days made me give a mental face palm.

    I'm coming to the discussion rather late, thanks to an overpowering work schedule, so I'll just add my voice to the chorus of a) I didn't even know one could set one's feed to 'Producer only' (why would one even do that at this stage of the game? It's way too early and new people are joining daily and I'd like to hear from them) and b) I don't actually subscribe to a 'you do it for me and I'll do it for you' attitude when it comes to posts. Heck, it's fast getting to the point where I can't even keep up with commenting on stuff I really *want* to speak to (this post being a prime example; I had to put it into the 'read later' basket, and here I am, four weeks after everyone else, finally giving an opinion) Why on earth would I waste my time on posts that *don't* intrigue me or pique my interest?

    In the Industrial West, we're pretty conditioned to quids pro quo (quid pro quos? whatever) but, happily one advantage to online relationships is that it's a little easier to just be yourself.

    I believe you have some valid points, but what I would say is what @John White, MBA has already said in a better manner than I could, to wit: look, you've already been answered by beBee employees, including the founders, who have directly addressed your concerns.

    I think your worrying might be a little premature.

    #74 From the mind of Shaman and Reiki Master, Max Carter circa 2011 ad

    If knowledge is power than wisdom in understanding.

    The sword and the master meet and the sword stabs the hell out of the master to teach the master that the sword needs no master to wield it.

    When you learn Phil how to make the sword and the master none than you will be your own master.

    #61 #63 John I totally get what your saying and thank you, it is very much appreciated.

    There are always growing pains and sometimes someone has to the one to say what no one wants to hear but might be needed.

    beBee has great potential in its blending of aspects of more than one platform into the concept however there is always a danger when you start closing the off the community to what can feed the community ans sustain long term growth.

    Think as the concept of diversity breeds diversity.

    Giving equal weight to all content regardless of it's origin breeds diversity. Anything else kills diversity and it's a slow death and the decay is often not noticed until it is too late or it becomes a major thing.

    #54 Phil What I see here in you latest comment is that you are telling us you don;t know what you are talking about in your first comment of challenging whether or not I am a Shaman and that you have nothing really of value to add and that you are not happy you got called out for the tactics of trying to use character assassination to discredit someone because they said something you didn't like.

    Your second comment showed it even more.

    It's basic psychological response when you identity is challenged and it is done in way that it makes sense so instead of accepting you find a way to discredit the source so you can ignore what was said.

    In spiritual terms you believe you wield power and are powerful and have the right to use that power as you will regardless of who it harms without having to face any repercussions or without reaping all that you have sown.

    In applying synchronicity to the engagement between you and I it would show maybe it's time for Phil to think about not talking shit about people when you disagree, maybe instead you should ask questions and remember that true learning happens in experience not in study.

    I am master only of myself and I train people to be the masters of themselves.

    Is there another level you want to connect on Phil, I can connect on all of them. It's what a Shaman does. Totem of the Frog or shifting levels of consciousness like most people breath.

    @Max Carter, thanks again! You have given us a lot to ponder. Despite being employed by beBee, I still really enjoy LinkedIn and am very active over there as well. However, since we are pointing out differences between the two platforms, I thought I'd mention the following. In 2014 and 2015, I wrote well over 100 posts that produced 2-million page views on LinkedIn. To say I went all in would be selling it short. Despite my many contributions and being a HUGE promoter of LinkedIn, I never once heard from a LinkedIn employee in the comments on my posts and most of the times I reached out to support I got ignored or a canned response, "this is a known issue. No ETA for resolution." Here on your post, you have heard from both founders of the company, one employee, and a brand ambassador. To me, that is a huge difference that is worth pointing out. On beBee, you will find the employees to be very engaged, and the executives to be in tune with user feedback whether positive or negative. I can't say I have seen anything like it on other platforms.

    John, I really like the wolf analogy in regards to values, very thought provoking. As I have looked back over my own career with an objective eye I was surprised by how few actual Leaders I've worked with, but were instead nothing more than managers. They didn't inspire me, more often than not, I inspired them. Too often it was about getting what they wanted out of their people rather than guiding their people. I guess I never realized just how often leadership was lacking.

    #6 Ageeed Irene that leaders need to have that internal drive to learn. The good news is we all have the capacity to lead, its our desire to learn and become leaders, even in small ways.

    Reminds me of a similar picture floating around of a kitten looking into a mirror and seeing a lion reflected. You're making me want to break into a chorus of 'It's not where you start, it's where you finish', @John Whitehead!

    @John Whitehead - great input! Personal psychology has so much to do with our behavior & the roles we assume. In my experience, those who are 'wannabe' leaders are very ego/power driven, but the great leaders seem to born with the gift and transcend all barriers.

    Excellent read John Whitehead with powerful message. There is always a struggle inside us between our two self. Our good 'self wins if we nurture it with love, compassion, empathy and similar other nutrients. And our good 'self' comes out stronger if we get these nutrients right since our childhood when our urge to consume and absorb is more.

    Introspection is at odds with our consumptive society, with its always on infotainment cycle. You can't examine yourself without examining things around you, and that's a pretty scary thing to do here at the dawn of the 21st century.

    Hi Dean, As the CEO of Internet Billboards, "The Web Curated" I would use our highly trafficked site, and contributors to promote beBee. In addition we would curate content from your blog. With over 40,000 social media followers, (combined) And a large following and authors as contributors on the site we can also write more about your platform. I really like it, as I am not a huge fan of Facebook. Question, I am getting an X for my profile completion. Can you tell me what I am missing. Looks like this is a required step. Thanks for your time, To success, Tom

    Hecht, I always knew that if Pirsig and his ADD stream of unconsciousnessness were ever to be reconstructed, it would be by some psychedelic pathfinder from Loosiannna marauding across the countryside on a motorcyle he had just rebuilt, listening to Keith Richards bangin' away. Or not. Just wondering, and glad to have you surface here. Cheers!

    #31 @Deb Helfrich Finally, after a half century, I have received a medical diagnosis. Runner's Dystonia. It took about a week to figure out the spiritual meaning. I have. I really was born to run. The problem is now solved !

    #30 The search for biological laws is probably useless. The body is built to adapt, and some will do so under very harsh conditions with aplomb. The problem is that we really don't know in advance who can survive extensive drug regimens and who will drop out very early in the race...... Same with weight an extra 20 lbs can put someone on the verge of serious issues and another person can be 100lbs overweight with less biological stress based on starting points and heritage and the food substrate used to gain those pounds..... everything in biology has thousands of inputs to any given dis-ease output.

    I bet Candice has already gotten Keith Richards attention. But since you brought him up, @Gerald Hecht, we are just going to have to go back to the drawing board on some of our health theories, because he disproves everything ever said about healthy living & I like that!

    You, @Jim Murray are the best mentor (of the double secret zen master type), I've ever had; and a month with no response is (for me) worth about five years of "relentlessly driven, and determined dedication to master a subject" in a university program.

    #18 The @John White, MBA photo, https://www.bebee.com/content/613583/593604 is just me poking fun at a friend. Yes, all of that started with my own bikini image in tongue-in-cheek response to @Candice Galek 🐝 . https://www.bebee.com/producer/@paul-croubalian/kicking-the-hornets-nest-for-fame-and-profit . The @Alan Geller got invloved. Then @Lisa Gallagher wanted equal treatment, https://www.bebee.com/content/614531/594828 . Then I made two of @Javier beBee, https://www.bebee.com/content/615480/596201 AND https://www.bebee.com/content/615478/596199 Iasked people to vote for their preference. Silliness is a good thing. Why must we always be serious? Answer, we shouldn't be. That's what makes beBee GREAT!
