Zero to 24/7

I’ve been working on some social media projects that I’m pretty excited about. When they’re done, though, how will people know? Increasingly my marketing plans point to getting more active online in making certain connections with target users and sponsors. Busy developing, my social media activity has recently slowed to  [ Read More ]

Before the Clock Strikes Past ’12

The holidays are here, and it has me thinking about two things: what I’m thankful for and time. We were expecting a second child this year, with a due date originally set for Thanksgiving. However, complications along the way changed how we’ll be celebrating the holidays now. It is quieter  [ Read More ]

Rediscovering Christmas through Today’s Noise

I don’t know about the whole “War on Christmas”, but I seem to be fighting my own battle on the homefront this year. Have you gotten in the spirit yet? As a child, Christmas felt like everything and everywhere, didn’t it? But not just because of the presents for me.  [ Read More ]

Pages putting the plus in Google+

I don’t know how 40 million users in 4 months could seem slow, but that’s always the feeling I got with Google+. I’m probably not running in the right circles, but even many social media leaders who live on Twitter were slow to jump with both feet into yet another  [ Read More ]
