I'm sorry, newbie question. I keep seeing references to "DM's to someone" ... Direct messages? how do you send direct messages on PH. Is it just because I'm new that I don't see that option? My Day: 1. Open the bookmark folder titled "Wake Up" 2. Check my traffic stats 3. Post any new animations to social media 4. Pick on the coding where I left off. 5. Eat lunch 6. Doodle in Gimp 7. Back to coding 8. Eat supper 9. Research, reading, etc 10. Doodling, make new content, post it, submit to Google 11. Sleep. I work from waking up to going to sleep. But I do whatever needs to be done whenever. Judging by OP's list, I really need to figure out how to network and be more businessly social.

@sclerek Hi Derek! Cool agenda=) I like that! I send direct messages on Twitter. Most people on PH have a Twitter link on their profile.

I write texts, then correct them and submit them for review. Already at the end they must confirm. And send my text.

For my personal projects, there are three pillars of activities that I spend time on: Marketing -- this includes social media marketing, content marketing, etc Community engagement -- to learn and to share my knowledge, like what I am doing right now on PH :) Creation -- this really lights me up and the reason why I have a few projects outside my day job. I am a creator at heart with a passion for knowledge sharing. I am also a technology leader. I am the happiest when I am creating something of value.
