Ahmnodt Heare for President

Ahmnodt Heare For America… Ahmnodt Heare For You.

Advice for Mitt Romney

It’s odd that I, a candidate for President of the United States, would give an opponent advice.  But after Mitt Romney bungled his foreign campaign trip, I can offer him some friendly advice.  There are only 98 days until Election Day and I doubt he will be doing any more campaigning overseas.  Below is some tidbits he can use abroad:

  • Answer the media’s questions. – If you don’t talk to the media, the media will attack.  They will say that you are “out of touch” or that other candidates give out better donuts at press conferences.
  • Find out the cultures of the countries you will visit and don’t step on their toes. –  People will frown on incidents like eating bacon at the Wailing Wall or saying “Erin go Bragh” at a bar in London.
  • Mingle with the people. – You represent America more than most Americans because you are applying for leadership.  America has a bad image overseas except for cities after I have campaigned there.  The more likable America is, the less likely we will be attacked in the future.
  • Refrain from bragging about America’s greatness.  America is a great country, but the first thing people will do after hearing that is ask, “If it’s a great country, why in the hell are you campaigning in my country?”.

Follow this advice in the future and you will have a more successful trip overseas.  The  people there will tweet the people here to vote for you.  (Unless they don’t have a Twitter account.)

Writing Dilemma (Follow @AhmnodtHeare)

I had recently adjusted my schedule to allow more time to write updates for this blog as well as Formulated Randomness.  A funny thing has happened to me since I found that time.  I have tapped into the power of Twitter.  It started with having my tweets read on TV (I have currently had three tweets read on TV.)

The problem is that I have been spending too much time on Twitter.  This is mostly because it is easier to tweet than to blog.  Tweets only require 140 characters (or less.)  Blogging has no requirements, but I usually try to type at least 200 words.  (Except when I am pressed for time and I can throw in some pictures.)

As convenient as Twitter is, I still need to blog.  The one thing blogging does better than tweeting is stay around.  If you are not online when I am tweeting, chances are that you will not read the tweet.  But if you’re not online as soon as I hit the “Publish” button on this blog, it’s no biggie.  The post will remain on the front page for a while.

If you see me tweeting, but you don’t see me blogging, give me a nudge on Twitter and I will blog.

Thank you for your continued support.

The Twitter Project – #ahmnodt

There were marketing students at Rensselaer Institute of Technology (RIT) who tried to get an “A” for their marketing project.  They would receive an “A” if they were able to make #theraj trending.  Though #theraj never showed up in the trending terms, it was tweeted by several of the people  I follow on Twitter.

The Twitter Project is simple to explain:  Get #ahmnodt trending by May 1.  If you are a regular on Twitter, make your first tweet of each day something about the campaign so people will know who I am.  ” #ahmnodt http://wp.me/c292″ takes a total of 27 characters including the space before the # (don’t add the quotes) .  That still leaves you with 113 characters to write about whatever you want to write about.  With your other tweets, just add “#ahmnodt”.  (without the quotes and the space equals only 9 characters.)

If you have any questions about how to do this, please send me an e-mail and I will be more than willing to help you.  I’ll even help you get something you want to get trending.

Foot in the Door

It took me a long time, but I finally got my name mentioned on TV.  Not just my name, but a quote I said.  It was read aloud AND it was shown on the screen with “AHMNODTHEARE” in caps.  Below is the tweet I sent:

The Question asked was: “Why are people so reluctant to prepare for an emergency before it happens?”

It was on MSNBC on Contessa Brewer’s show.  She read her question at the beginning of her show (Noon Mondays – Fridays) and reads the best replies at the end of her show.  The only bad part is that the Twitter readings aren’t posted on the web like other parts of the shows so I will be unable to post the video.

I should add that Drew Pelto doesn’t hate grasshoppers.  He was just reciting St. Urho’s chant: “Heinäsirkka, heinäsirkka, mene täältä hiiteen!” (“Grasshopper, grasshopper, go from hence to Hell!”),

It looks like the key to prolonged media exposure will be to go the “Baba Booey” route.  This is done by calling in to talk shows and greeting the show you are calling with “Ahmnodt Heare.”  This also works at work meetings when the manager asks if there are any questions.

I have a feeling that “Ahmnodt Heare” will be a household name by the Summer.  It is already a phrase used when someone calls a bar looking for their spouse.

The Tweeting Project

If you have a Twitter account like I do, you like to write small notes and read notes of others. I like to log on twice a day:  First thing in the morning and just before or after dinner.  Sometimes I’ll log on and tweet just to let people know I am still alive.

Below is a post I tweeted around 8PM Mountain Time last night:

Ground Zero mosque critics don’t understand what it means to be American: http://tinyurl.com/29cwpe8

The Tweeting Project is simple.  All you have to do is copy what I am posting below and tweet it on your account.

#AhmnodtHeare for America.  Ahmnodt Heare for You.  Ahmnodt Heare for President. http://tinyurl.com/ahmnodt

If you feel like tweeting about the campaign or about me, Just replace “Ahmnodt Heare” with “#AhmnodtHeare” in your tweet.  The “#AhmnodtHeare” allows those who are looking for more information about me to have all the information on one page.  I will dedicate a blog entry to the best #AhmnodtHeare tweets when I get back from vacation next weekend.

I am getting ready for the big hike today in the San Luis mountain range in Colorado followed by an afternoon of Bluegrass music.  It is nice to be able to hike without broken bones this year.
