March 3, 2006
Trying to work smarter and save time. Here’s some of inspiration I’ve been receiving. Thanks.

Tomcat Selman Heir Weighs In
“My name is Reggie Selman and I live in Alamogordo, NM. I am maniac #98 and I
was born and raised in Clovis, NM on a ranch. My great Grandfather was Thomas Clark Selman better known as Tom Cat Selman. He was John Selman's brother. The one of John Wesley Hardin fame.”

J.Rae Has Her Ways
“Remember U.S. Air flight attendant Betty Flores who you credited with the line ‘one person saves an airline.’ Creating the blog made you the face and voice of TRUE WEST MAGAZINE. It's not just a corporate business with never to be seen executives running the show. TW is Bob's magazine and Bob's staff. You have established a personal connection with your readership. You have created an interest in your product. You have established an avenue in which to exchange ideas with others who are interested in history and the Western lifestyle. You have a network to obtain valuable feedback world-wide. Maybe some would describe the blog as a waste of time. I would wager it is a smart and affordable marketing tool and has played a significant role in the current success of your magazine.”

A Bookkeeper’s Bottom Line Advice
“I enjoy your Blog because it gives me an overview of the Arizona lifestyle and your publishing business, but its your call.

“If I was distressed because I couldn't allocate time to handle important matters crucial to my practice that affect others who are rely on my judgement then I would be concerned about spending 40-hours a month on Blogs.

“Maybe you could do weekly Blogs and still have the PR exposure.”
—Francine Alexander

Bell On Bell On Blog
“I look forward to reading you blog every morning and I too get irritated when it's not there and have to wait. I like hearing your witticisms and the wacky way you look at things. I especially like hearing from a fellow Kingmanite. You keep me in touch with the Southwest. I really cherish the old memories that you help stir up about our old school, teachers and classmates. MCUHS rules! The Mexican food is cheaper in North Carolina. If you decide to stop blogging I'll understand. I won't like it but I'll understand.”
—Scott Bell, former Kingmanite

Brokeback Huffines
“If you stop blogging I will hold my breath until I turn gay. You don't want to be responsible for that, do you? Sure, the blog is a distraction but you have created a water-cooler conversation that ties many of us back into the magazine daily instead of once
a month.”
—Alan Huffines

“I use heavy strings, tune low, play hard, and floor it. Floor it, that’s technical talk.”
—Stevie Ray Vaughan
