I just got more cowbell in my life! (Big News)
wesley83

Some of you may have heard, but consider this my official announcement. I am now the Digital Strategist for Snoball!

For years I have had a passion for social. If you know me this is no surprise to you, I'm sure. My involvement in social giving and all my hard work has paid off big time. I am still settling into my new role, but I didn't get here on my own and I am still going to need a lot of help along the way.

Here at Snoball we are still young and we have a lot to learn. I want to make sure that I keep an open line of communication and be as engaging as possible. This is where you come in. Take a look at the site at http://snoball.com and let me know what you think. Sign up for an account, put in your favorite charity and I'll share that with the team. If you work with, or for a nonprofit I especially want to hear from you. 

Here is a short video describing the concept of Snoball:

Once again, thank you all for everything. Your love and support has carried me to the career of my dreams, and for that I am eternally grateful. I also want to thank my former manager David Huebel, director Frank Gorishek, and all my co-workers at AMD. I love and miss you all.

My second week into #MovemberATX 2011
wesley83

Today is the start of week two of Movember. That means it is time for another shave. Here is a updated picture of the Mo:

As you can see, my stache is starting to fill in. Now you see how I am doing on the hair side, let's take a look at how much money I have raised. Right now I have $54 in my bank, and before you point out that the total is exactly the same as last week, I would say you're right. I have not gotten one $1 in donations in over a week. I must be doing something wrong. If you are reading this right now, please just give me a dollar. One dollar is all I ask. Please and thank you.

This is my third year being on Team Austin, and every year they do an awesome job. I hope that this year I am able to do my small part to help the cause. If you are in Austin, there are a ton of events scheduled. Check out the Facebook page and the Twitter account to stay current on all the happenings. You can also track other members of the team by the hash tag #MovemberATX.

Once again, I would love your help. Please donate what you can and check out myprogress at: http://mobro.co/wesley83

One week into #MovemberATX 2011
wesley83

Yesterday marked the end of the first week of Movember.That means it is time for a shave. I know people shave everyday, but that's not me. My sensitive skin can't take the blade that often. Here is a picture of the before:

And here is a picture of the after:

You can see my baby stache if you look really, really, close. It's hard for me to grow hair and I look ridiculous when I try. This is all for a good cause. Speaking of donations* I would like to take the ime to thank those who have contributed to the cause of men's health.

  • Ashlynn Kemp
  • Liz Bradford
  • Heather Strout

I think that it's funny that all my donations are from women. I think it is out of pure pity. Please make a donation of any amount. Right now I have $54 in my bank and would love to double it before the end of the week.

The time has come! #MovemberATX 2011 day 1.
wesley83

Today is the first day of Movember. If you haven't heard of Movember, it is obviously a combination of the word Mo, which is short for mustache, and November. The goal is to raise awareness and funds for male health issues, such as prostate and testicular cancer.

How is this done you may ask? Well in my case, I scare you a little by shaving my face bald. No more goatee, no more beard. I will be slowly growing a mustache for the whole month and will be asking for your support. Please make a donation of any amount. Right now I have $1 in my bank and would love to double it before the end of the day.

Here is my before pic. I took it at 5am in my bathroom this morning. I hope that explains the sleepy/pissed look I am giving off.

I was up that early to catch a flight. Lucky me, I was invited to some secret Ford event in Dearborn, Michigan. So super secret that at right now as I sit in my hotel room I have no idea what the agenda is. Now that you have seen the before, brace yourself for the after.

I got an email saying that there was a notice for me. In said notice I saw this chart placed at the bottom. I see that there are things that Discover will share to others about me. I also see that there is a small number of items I can opt out of by calling the number 1-800-225-5202. I just called that number and it get some robot asking me what number I want to dial, wtf?

I am already on Discover's website, why can I not just uncheck a box? They really want to make it hard for people to opt-out of sharing valuable personal information.
