An Open Letter to Klout

Dear Klout and the data gurus behind the “much improved” algorithm, I remember back when you first hit the social media scene. We bloggers and heavy social media users flocked to your site, signing up for an account and linking our Facebook profiles. We wondered what our score be. How will we stack up against…

Boycotting and Photo Sharing

It’s the second Friday of the month, and you know what that means!! It’s time for another #BLOGBOYCOTTDAY! And the added plus? This month’s 2nd social media Linky is for Instagram handles. For Twitter, please add your profile URL. For Instagram, just enter your username (no URLs/links) Related Posts:Pin Me, Baby!For the Love of the…

Things that Confuse me in Social Media

I consider myself to be relatively well-versed in All Things Social Media. I use many different social media platforms, I read a great deal about social media and I regularly teach others about engagement in and the best practices of social media. There are some aspects of this realm that do nag at me sometimes,…

Let’s Gauge my Level of Dull

The hippest housewife I know posed this question to Twitter the other day. Because I’m very vanilla when it comes to music, I responded. But because the Babe is not only hip, but also truly cool, she was kind. Continuing with my self-deprecation… I may not be cutting edge with my basic, Top 40 style…

Pin Me, Baby!

#BlogBoycottDay began as a way to take a break from blogging for a day and spend time connecting with others on Twitter. In the past few months, I’ve added other social media profile link ups along with the standard Twitter handle Linky. Although Twitter is my first love, there are a lot of other platforms…

Pick Your Social Media Poison

I’m a big believer that it’s OK to be a bad blogger. We can’t do everything and we shouldn’t try. We simply are not being effective if we attempt to “do it all”. But I do think that if you are going to dive into the social bookmarking arena, you need to seriously consider using…

It’s a “Different” Kind of Blogoversary

August 2010 was the inaugural #BlogBoycottDay, which means that we’ve been at this Second-Friday-of-the-Month¬†Tweetfest for an entire year! Major hat tip to all my #ALLCAPSAWESOME tweeps! To build on the “social media” aspect of it, I thought that with each #BlogBoycottDay going forward, I’d include a linky to some various type of social media account….

For the Love of the Tweet

It’s the 2nd Friday of the month. And you know what that means… It’s time for another #BlogBoycottDay! Spend the day tweeting instead of blog hopping. And who wouldn’t love to spend their Friday like this. It’s a holiday week AND a blog conference is going on right now in Utah, which means the blogosphere…

The Marriage between Privacy and the Internet

I find “privacy” and the “internet” to be rather strange bedfellows. Too often, these are married for an article or news story about how to protect yourself and your family along the information highway. They tend to go hand-in-hand in a very Odd Couple sort of way, and unfortunately, the pairing of online and privacy…

What I Wish I Knew Before I Started Blogging

Jacki from The Raven’s Spell has invited me over to her place to discuss the things I wish I had known before diving head first into this deep bloggy sea. But no hints from me; you’ll need to click on over to read about all that I’ve discovered in the past 15 months. Thanks! Related…
