It was a long afternoon as I flew from Madison, WI to Chicago IL and finally Detroit, MI. However, the trip was worth it just for this first day. The best part, I am here to learn about how Ford is changing the way we drive our cars. I got to my room around 6 […]
The first day of BlogWorld & New Media Expo was powerful. This is the day to learn as companies like ProBlogger and ReBlogWorld, as well as the medical and military tracks bring out content and learning to all members.

The final part of the Ford Edge video is Amy Marentic talking on who will buy the Edge, a Crossover or a brand new vehicle for that meaning. With 27 competetors, the Ford Edge is the oldest and the most purchased. 70% are loyal to buy a new Ford. Another statistic is that Edge growth […]
Part 3 of the keynote was from John Schneider. He showed us what was on the inside.

This morning started late. For some reason (maybe the fact I didn’t sleep in 48 hours), I woke up at 10 AM. I don’t normally do that, but what is more interesting is I am in Pacific Time zone. So technically, I slept until noon. I got up, worked on some stats and headed off […]
