How to Be Rich Now

Written by on April 14, 2010

I read this post by Christine Kane today and loved the message she had to send. A lot of it is just being in a truly positive mindset, but a few of these tricks are worth doing, whether you are an eternal optimist (like me!), cynic, pessimist or just plain old down in the dumps. So give it a read, share it, re-post it on your blog (be sure to use her author box at the bottom) or print it out an...

Mama Sox and her Didgeridoo

Written by on April 6, 2010

Just listened to Crystal Bowersox belt out another fabulous performance on American Idol Season Nine. She sang Paul McCartney's "Come to Together" and was accompanied by a Didgeridoo player.

I came across a pretty good blog post this morning looking for permalink do's and don'ts from my pal Vicky over at PrairieHarpy. The title is "10 Mistakes Made by Social Media Newbies" and it was written not too long ago (December 2009) by Shari Weiss and is an exceptional list for people just getting into Social Media Marketing. It made me think about some things that have been rolling around ...

Postling's Potential

Written by on March 29, 2010

I spent a few 10 minute bundles this morning playing around with Postling to see if it was a usable service. There are definitely some features in here that I like, especial the "brand tracking". In fact, that might actually be the best feature of Postling. I'm not so sure the web needs yet "another" all services in one application unless it quickly becomes the end-all, be...
