What an UNPLEASANT Surprise.

Now that COMMON SENSE BUSINESS is in paperback at $13.95, it's starting to move off the bookstore shelves a lot faster. That, coupled with the fact that there is an eight-page feature in the November/December, 2006, issue of SUCCESS Magazine (see page 54) and my Web site address appears at the end of the article, convinced me that I needed to take another look at the whole "Blog" idea—and maybe get serious about it.

So I logged on to my own blog, and was shocked to see the things that people had posted on MY blog. Dirty, naughty, nasty, awful, crass, tasteless stuff that I would never approve for posting on MY blog. I deleted it all immediately.

Beginning today, I have new rules. If you want to post something on MY blog, it has to get past MY eyes! No more, "I'd love to hear your comments." Well, that's not quite fair. I do want to hear your comments, but they won't make it onto MY blog unless they are about small business, finance, investing and similar topics.

Thanks for understanding! And I apologize if you viewed the blog before I eliminmated the garbage, and you were offended in any way.

Welcome to the exciting world of small business!

Thanks to Dave Gjerness, my friend as well as the graphic designer who created the dust jacket and the Web site for COMMON SENSE BUSINESS, my new book from Harper Business (due in stores on August 1, 2005), I am now a blogger!

The 21st century sure is lots of fun! Who could have guessed that some tech-head could come up with something so cool?

I invite you to add anything to these pages that relates to small business or career development. I also have a blog for those of you who have an interest in writing as a career. You'll find that link on the "Steve's Workshop" page on the Web site. Add anything you want that's related to writing or screenwriting.

I'd prefer that this not become a political forum. There are plenty of places you can go to get up on that soapbox and speak your mind. Other than that, go for it!

So...welcome! Let's have some fun! (As much fun as we can have discussing small business and the development of our careers!)

Welcome to Steve's Blog!

Within the next few days, we'll start posting stories, history and advice that will have the potential to make a great difference in your business... and your life!
