If you’re not going to be social, why are you on social media?

True fact: I like reading your blogs. Everyone has a story to share, a passion, or a skill to pass on. I gain insight or learn something new. I like to be inspired and a perpetual student. I like your blog even more if I can find a way to subscribe, easily share your content, […]

A World without Steve Jobs

Steve Jobs

Today, we wake up to a world without Steve Jobs. I’m still in disbelief and even cried a little when I heard the news. I was in shock and couldn’t believe it. He inspired all of us to dream, be crazy, and have a vision. Here’s my letter to Steve: Dear Steve, I first heard […]

Why Cities Need a Solid Social Media Strategy

Road Closed

This afternoon, I had an appointment at Big Train which happens to be 5 minutes away from where I live however when I got to Bake Pkwy I noticed a line of cars and figured it was an unusual lunch rush. I tweeted about the incident, got a few retweets, and 15 minutes later I […]

Dear Facebook: I think you have ADD

Facebook

And you need some serious help. I watched The Social Network and I’m pretty sure Mark Zuckerberg has ADD. Another revision? So soon? Already? I could have sworn there was an update like last month (friendship pages) and I barely got used to that. People say change is good. Change should be embraced however I’m […]

Can I Pick Your Brain?

Brain

Ouch! No! What are you thinking? That would hurt. Oh, that’s not what you meant. So what did you mean? Ah, I see. You meant it figuratively. You want to pick my brain for FREE advice. Like I said earlier: No! Picking my brain does hurt. Not physically unless you bore me with your ideas […]

A Letter to Facebook

Facebook

Dear Facebook, I love you. I really do. I joined early on before I even knew what you could become or what power you held over me. I joined because my sister told me you were “cool.” I left Friendster and MySpace to be with you. That’s how loyal I am. I was there amongst […]

Audio Blog: A Shoutout to Social Media

On my Phone (quite possibly tweeting or texting)

This weekend was simply amazing and as I sit here and reflect I have social media to thank for all these wonderful people in my life. I recorded this audio blog in honor of social media, this weekend, and for all those that haven’t started on social media or are thinking of quitting due to […]

Social Media and ROI: What are you Measuring?

Social Media Bubble

This morning, I spent about 2 hours explaining social media and how it works. I don’t mind this time. If they get it, the time was well spent; if they don’t then I know that’s an area of my business I need to work on. The conversation went well but I could still see the […]
