Over the past year, I’ve been bouncing back and forth between two conflicting ideas about Twitter. This post isn’t about business advice, or whether you should be on Twitter or not. Before we go further, for reasons I don’t discuss in this post, I think you absolutely should be on Twitter if you have a […]

This question comes up every time someone decides to join social media to help their business. Which Social Networks Should I Join For My Business? The answer is tough.

A refreshing experience where you can remain anonymous, but can also monetize your content and advertise. Check out more about it on my blogpost.
Google’s Autoawesome is really kicking ass. I thought I’d show you the video that Google made from my photos from 2014. All I had to do was use the Google photos service over the past year and as we got close to the end of the year Google created this. If you actually use the […]
Under today’s Neat Stuff I Found, I bring you my Foursquare Time machine. I am on the virge of ditching foursquare for good, but then my buddy Jeff Hester puts this up on his youtube channel. And all of the sudden I can’t delete my Foursquare account. There’s just so much in there. And now, […]
Lots of people ask me how I make money from Twitter. The truth is that I don’t do anything differently than other Twitter users. I simply post stuff that is interesting to me and could be interesting to others. Pictures, videos, thoughts and comments about everyday life. I share useful content, interesting or entertaining. There’s […]
In a previous post I talked about goals and I talked about one related to social media. I want to grow my social media presence significantly over the next 12 months. Even though Social media is yet to prove a positive and consistent ROI for anyone, I know that it is important. After all, people […]
Recently I wondered where my Instagram followers are. I know most of them are my IRL (in real life) friends so most of them come from the southern California area. But as I hit over 1000 followers, I know that not all of them come from Orange County. But I can guess that they are […]
It is tough to find a good blogging group where you can collaborate with other bloggers.

We host monthly […]

I’ll be bringing in experts to provide valuable insights, and I will be running educational series workshops. We’re starting off with small groups, and so far […]
Example of what I consider to be a great post in a Facebook page. It Builds community, shows support and positive activity.
Klout, Peer Index, Empire Avenue and even now Kred all try to measure influence. But can they really do that? I think they’re failing and this post tells you why.

Some of the applicable uses for this program as I see it are: Updating from cron or automated tasks Updating from your terminal Update certain events from a logfile Updating Twitter from a low-powered computer, TTYtter runs on […]
This is a must read if you’re in social media, marketing, business or want to be in any of those three. I separate social media and marketing because I really want you to consider this book if you’re in the traditional marketing space. For those of you doing social media, and doing it well, you […]
