Tweet I hated online dating when I was single. I must have changed my profile on¬†JDate five times to try and strike a tone that I thought was indicative of my personality and I still never got close. I think most people struggle to “sell themselves” in the online setting because the end result comes […]

Tweet I had a whole thing worked out for today’s post – something about routines that I guess I’ll get too later – when something happened that I think merits some discussion. I’m calling it “The Brogan Effect.” I wrote a post back in October about¬†meeting Chris Brogan and the effect it had on my […]

Tweet Have I mentioned on this blog how much I love hashtags? For those of you who are unfamiliar, “hashtags” are a way of creating order from the chaos that is Twitter. If you follow a large number of people, your stream becomes incredibly difficult to follow. Sometimes, even when you use lists and tools […]

Tweet If you’re only using the Twitter website, you’re not really using twitter – something I overheard at BlogWorld that keeps rolling around in my head along with the theme to “Family Ties”.

Tweet Like I said in a post last week, I’ve tried a bunch of different things on Twitter. A lot of them didn’t work out. One that I left in place longer than I should have was the Auto-DM. For the layperson (no sexism on this blog!), DM refers to “direct message”, a private message […]

Tweet If you’re reading this and you’re a friend of mine, you already know who Dracu-Pig is. For those of you who don’t, first let me say welcome to my blog. (I wonder if you were searching for vampire/pig hybrids or something “social media-y”…) I thought I would share the origin story of Dracu-Pig because […]

Tweet One of my favorite panels from the BlogWorld Expo was called “The Twitter Game: How To ‘Play’ Social Media and Why It’s A Bad Idea.” It was all about “gaming” Twitter – what should be automated, what should, best practices, all that tasty stuff. Before I really get into anything here, I think it’s […]

Tweet Learn Social Media and get Perfect Abs in 97 Minutes! I just got an email with the subject line “How to get Social Networking and SEO Savvy in 90 Minutes”. The email was promoting, in a very old school, spammy kind of way, a webinar that promised that I would “..learn the ins and […]

Tweet Twitter: Our Window to Iran As Social Media Grows, the power of instant communication by “citizen journalists” grows as well. Its hard to reconcile the impact of this use of twitter as an uncensored window on world events with people asking “Why do I care what So and So had for breakfast?” I guess […]
