    #3 The problem with Republicans is the hate for Democrats. I have lived long enough to have lived under Republican rule; knowing they sat on their hands and fought among themselves while nothing got done. When they lost their seats and it was handed to the democrats they did the same thing the democrats are doing now. The now president turned against Obama and rallied the country behind him. This man who refuses to turn over his taxes, release his holdings in business, who, as you say, is not following our Constitution. So you can spread your hate for the Democrats all you want. I have not seen this country in such bad repair since Clinton, who by the way, had us debt free. There has always been good and bad in all presidents, but Trump spread hate and violence throughout his campaign. And now the Republicans have said they will block anything the Democrats bring to the table. If you don't think that is going to hurt this country, then you should try going to a different school to learn of our history. Hate as you speak, is hate. The rating of 32 to 37% for Trump shows he needs to learn a lot. The Republican party is divide on like and dislike for him. He has stepped into big boys shoes, and he will have to do a lot better than he has to fill them.

    Let's stop the petty B.S. and get on with the task of rebuilding the republic that has been corrupted and almost destroyed by the Progressive Democrats who violated their Oath of Office by undermining the Constitution of the United States to install a Socialist Empire ruled by the "Progressive Experts" who know what is best for you.

    Did you know that in the last 100 years not one Democrat President has upheld the Constitution of the United States and the principles of the Declaration of Independence which founded this nation? But they have violated their Oath of Office and systematically undermined both the principles of this republic and the Constitution of the United States in an effort to create a Socialist empire in which the "Unconstitutional" Federal Bureaucrats rule the nation and not we the people. I suggest that you take some online courses with Hillsdale College, in Michigan, to learn a few basic facts about the founding of this nation before the extremist Progressive Democrats corrupted everything that is good about America and attempted to install a Socialist Government in violation of the Constitution of the United States. Thank you. raylooker.com

    Gert, this is a very important topic to discuss, especially due to the large disproportion between the number of views and the number of Relevants, not to mention the number of comments.
    For me, the first praise to a post I read and enjoyed is to hit the relevant button. But sometimes the Relevant is also award for efforts, especially when it is about someone's first post because I always remember the excitement I felt when I published my first ever post, just on beBee.

    #15 This buzz is definitely relevant as it ticks all the boxes for me @Gert Scholtz Thank you :)

    As @CityVP 🐝 Manjit says " Relevance is not about acknowledging the quality of the writing, but far more about acknowledging the quality of the human being here and the message that they are trying to convey "
    More like a pat on the back to say your doing good and if we add a comment of value then the writer receives inputs to make the buzz more successful. Thus the message of the buzz is received and acknowledged. Relevant to me is more like an acknowledgment of affinity that the buzz resonates with me or has added some value to me.

    Good thoughts Gert! Clicking a relevant for me is like saying - I like it...it connects...i can relate...i appreciate the effort..and the like. It is an acknowledgement in the absence of an interaction / conversation. Sometimes words are not needed! It is the first step...finding something relevant...then thinking about it and sharing your views in the conversation (if you have some thoughts that is)...and if the inspiration is too much, creating producing honey is inevitable.

    #34 @Ken Boddie Thank you for the elaborate comment and I agree with you. I think a relevant can be a first and basic indication of acknowledgment to a writer. At times I read posts which I find interesting but do not have what I think is a comment of value to add – then a relevant may be well-placed. When it comes to building bonds and affinity then considerate comments are most valuable – such as those that you so kindly offer on the beBee platform. Thanks again Ken!

    #3 Hi @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher, it does take a deliberate daily effort to do non-business related things that make a difference to my health. I can only imagine the challenges that your husband faces managing his IT Consulting Company.

    It’s great news that he can take holidays more often. A break can do wonders for recharging the batteries. Thank goodness for remote working and competent employees :). Yay, to him exercising at his home office! Please let me know how he gets on using f.lux.

    Hi @Deb 🐝 Helfrich you’re so right about the ease that bad habits can be created. I must admit that I worked from my bed or sofa when I started freelancing. I think I was slightly rebelling against anything desk-related, as I spent years sitting in an office :).

    Neck strain was a sure-fire sign that I needed to change my ways.

    Like you, I now have a simple set-up (a desk and chair) that is much more ergonomic. So yes, good posture is absolutely a big part in keeping ourselves well when working from home.

    20/01/2017 #3 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher
    Great tips @Karan Johnson. I think it's cool that you recognized what is important and works for you in order to be highly functional without getting ill or having a break down! Because my husband runs his own IT Consulting Co. he doesn't have a choice many times with regards to determining good times to not be on his PC. I will have to relate to him about f.lux you wrote of above, that may help him when he has to be online late at night. He used to take small vacations every 2-3 years but now he can go and not worry because he can work remotely if an issue comes up and he's trained his employees to do much more than they were doing when hired. He related to me he's been taking breaks in his office and doing exercises (his home office, that is). Thanks for this!

    #1 @Deb 🐝 Helfrich If I understand what you are saying; I am an agreement..."practicing" optimal static and dynamic posture/movement through spacetime is so very vital for the ultimate ride of a lifetime; and it doesn't require any special "functional furniture"...Jacob hurt his his leg after climbing a ladder to heaven and getting ina scuffle with an angel/velvet rope bouncer.
    All because instead of sleeping flat on the ground, he felt he had to rest his head on a "rock pillow"...a most unnatural sleeping position for proper oxygenation and avoiding disruptive episodes of apnea.
    Deb 🐝 Helfrich
    20/01/2017 #1 Deb 🐝 Helfrich
    Wellness while freelancing is crucial, @Karan Johnson, because it can be so easy to work in an unstructured manner and create bad habits.

    Posture is a big thing to pay attention to, and it can be easy to use regular relaxing furniture with all our smart devices, but I know I am more focused and productive when I practice structural integrity while working. I have a completely bespoke set-up that almost guarantees good posture.

    It is a bunch of random bits of furniture, but they are all at the appropriate heights to enable me to not force myself into strange contortionist positions. That is a very crucial aspect of wellness while working from home.

    John 14:6, Jesus said unto him, I am the way, the truth and the life: no man comes unto the Father, but by me. The churches need to go back to preaching the Bible. To many times I hear Christians say that he or she is in heaven now. In some cases that is true, if he or she have been "born again." We'll talk about the born again thing later. But for those that have not, heaven is not going to be part of them. "No man comes unto the Father, but by me!" Now you have to re-read John 3:16 again. It will tell you what this means.

    I was reminded of a little quote I heard about the 3 types of public speakers. I think it may apply to blog posting as well:

    There are 3 types of public speakers:
    - There are those that talk AT you. (Think hellfire preachin')
    - There are those that talk TO you. (Think most presentations)
    - There are those that talk WITH you. (These are the exceptional speakers and writers).

    As much as we like learning, @GeorgeMaifair, the message often falls flat in the delivery. What I've learned interests people is really the palpable rather than the expletive. Part of learning these days is the entertainment value, meaning we like to read what stimulates us rather than what appals us. Sometimes the tone does this, other times it's the content. It's always a "thin wire" but it's worth getting right if you want people to follow you. Thanks for the most.

    Do not be fooled by George Maifair. He is an expert in intellectual property law (and a lawyer, to boot), not to mention a long-time writer and commenter on LinkedIn.

    Really, pleased to see you here on beBee, George. Am following and sharing. Welcome!

    Welcome to beBee @George Maifair. Perhaps some may think that a negative title and content will be a different approach drawing a curious audience. I prefer my reading material to be uplifting and positive, but not sappy.

    I agree with, Paul, we all write something that we wish would have been written in disappearing ink.

    tend to agree. Why frame something as a negative when it can be framed as a positive - especially as people are more likely to search on "how to..." rather than, "how not to..." I think people use negative questions in order to stand out from the sea of content. But, as you say, can end up looking like a condescending jerk. (Not you :)

    I'll take you at your word. Keep in mind that some blogs are viewed as "negative" because the "leadership" group-think isn't wanting to hear what you have to say.

    The verdict is in... beBee beats LinkedIn for content sharingIf you follow me, you will know that back in April I posted a piece on beBee titled 'LinkedIn, We have a problem.'

    I couldn't agree more. It's disheartening on LinkedIn to put articles up and get something like 12 views. Especially when its original content. I am also enjoying the engagement on bebee even as a relative newbie.

    This is so true. I have pointed this out to many who are following me on Linkedln. They don't answer. I have been posting to Linkedln and beBee and get feedback on beBee and nothing on Linkedln. It seems to me, Linkedln is more about getting people to follow you than it is about information.

    Nice buzz, Sandra. I think you hit the proverbial nail on the head yet again.
    Put simply, when it comes to blogging and personal branding:
    beBee = fostering user engagement and a satisfying user experience.
    LI = intentionally trampling user engagement and a frustrating user experience.
    Lisa 🐝 Gallagher
    17/01/2017 #39 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher
    This is one reason I moved to beBee about a year ago @Sandra Smith. I had engagement on LI but it was dropping due to changes they were making, thanks to their algorithms, many of us were not receiving notifications of those we followed and read regularly. I also find the climate on beBee more conducive and supportive. Also, it's articles like this that benefit from the many hives because people actually see them, re-read the buzzes and repost, hence more views, comments/engagement. Nice to have you here! By the way, we share something in common, I have written about Mental Illness too because I'd like to see the stigma end one day. Have you repurposed your article above to beBee? If you haven't, I would love to read it here. Thanks!

    Great Article / Post Sandra and completely agree with some of your comments LinkedIn has changed so much over the last 12/18 Months I have not seen any changes on there platform if anything all I see are problems and faults which never get dealt with from there lack of decent customer services .

    I spent lot of time on there platform with building dedicated group networks for Marketing purposes but looks like there rules and regulations are different depending on who you are . Since they made few changes on the LinkedIn pulse I use to get views of 5,000 - 10,000 per article and now lucky if 100 people even view it .

    Thanks for sharing your experiences @Sandra Smith. As a data guy I find it interesting to compare beBee with the other social platforms. From my personal experience I see there are different flavors of writing and information shared on beBee and LinkedIn. On my posts, which are more business/IT oriented I get a lot higher engagement on LinkedIn, more views on beBee, but more people liking, commenting and sharing on LinkedIn. Of course it's also not a fair comparison as my LinkedIn network is orders of magnitude bigger. What it does suggest to me is that different types of people are attracted to each platform, at least at this point, and that it underscores the need to find and build your audience on each. By emphasize a full 3-D personal branding approach no doubt beBee will catch up and surpass the other social networks.

    @Sandra Smith.After your final analysis ,one is reminded of what people used to say about thoughts and feelings and why they are being in love with beBee.When you are, you will know you are.You will recognize that the feeling is here.It's the same with the platform strategy ;when it's good ,you will know it's good ,you will recognize that the feeling and the more satisfying depth of understanding is here.What makes beBee platform unique is that it enable readers to manipulate their own perception,behavior and attitude,and even uncover their "core interests" which they were unaware of or unable to articulate at Linked in .

    Interesting discussion. While some beBee Ambassadors seem to excel at generating buzz by reposting, both of you are prolific producers of highly readable posts. While beBee finds its feet in the English speaking world (the growth is small compared to the Spanish language side), just keep doing what you do.

    Occasionally, I may even agree with you.

    #59 @Phil Friedman I did not; another bubble burst...is there no solace to be found anywhere? It's a good think I grew up on the Jersey Shore...on the boardwalks...mostly every business/entertainment enterprise along the way ...is not quite what it seems ; the "fortune tellers", "snake oil hawkers", "carnival barkers"...eventually the total immersion in an environment of (mostly) harmless fraud...covered with a veneer of weathered paint and sand ..imparts both an immunity to and commitment expectation of the fake reality beneath the cotton candy surface.

    Still...people everywhere seem to be soothed at the prospect of significant savings on auto insurance...the glimmer of hope...the hope born of a promised lightening of their financial burden through switching to Geico.

    #61 Chas, at my house, we consider geckos our friends and guests. They eat bugs. To wit: "Florida has several lizard species that are easy to find and interesting to watch. Geckos are so common in buildings in South Florida that they are called ‘house lizards.’ " ( http://www.wildflorida.com/florida_lizards.php ). As to salmonella, most wild lizards carry the bacteria, which is one reason why we give our dogs shots known as "Lepto" vaccinations. Not only do we have an abundance of geckos around our place, but we also have iguanas, some of which measure more than 4 feet from nose to tip of tail. Cheers!
