Latest Slideshare Stats

Slideshare Rocks!Many of my friends and readers know that I publish almost all of my presentations online on my “channel” at I have twenty presentations online, of which fifteen are technical presentations in the IT field (associated with my day job) and five are on topics more closely related to my creative endeavors. To date, I’ve received 93,146 views.

What’s most interesting to me right now, though, is that my five non-technical presentations, which are among my newest presentations, have together amassed 13,947 views. They are:

They’re ranked by number of views, which also currently corresponds to age. So “Public Speaking for Writers” has been online for only a little over a month. Interestingly, “21st Century Writer” is the fastest mover and will probably top the list within the next year.

Check them out if you get a chance. I’d like to think that I’ve made some pretty decent content available online for free. Please let me know if you find it interesting or useful (or both).

Public Speaking for Writers – Slides Now Online

Here are the slides for my recent workshop, “Public Speaking for Writers,” which I told a number of people at Capclave 2014 that I would post online.

So far, I’ve conducted the full workshop at Capclave 2014, and an abbreviated version of the workshop for Ashburn Toastmasters. I anticipate running the full version again here in Northern Virginia at one of Loudoun Country’s libraries, probably in early 2015.

I Made the Slideshare Top 2% Viewed for 2013

I got an email from a few days ago announcing that I’d made the list of the Top 2% Most Viewed for my presentations on

Most Viewed on SlideShare

I’ve had more than 75,000 views of my presentations. I have 19 presentations out there, of which 17 are related to my day job. However, 2 of them are, I think, of general interest to the readers of this blog. My presentation, 21st Century Writer, is all about the changes in the publishing industry and the opportunities available for writers. My presentation, Titanic: The Forgotten Passengers, is all about the pets that were on the Titanic during its ill-fated 1912 journey.

Check out some of my presentations. There’s some good content out there, and I’ll be posting more in the future.
