I quit.

I don’t know if there’s a way to say this without being melodramatic or downright obnoxious, so I’m just going to say it… I quit! That’s right. This is my last blog post. And that’s a picture of me as I write my last blog post. Blogging is such a big part of my life (I’ve been doing it for…

Pinterest Tips (for the rest of us)

I’m blogging about blogging! Bloggers, weigh in! My mantra when it comes to blogging is “if it’s not fun, don’t do it.” Fun doesn’t mean that the “it” in question isn’t challenging or hard work, but I believe you should enjoy the process of learning and creating and take something of value from the experience. Pinterest sits right on the…

New Year’s Resolutions

New Year’s resolutions. We all make them. We all break them. But this year I’m making a resolution I can stick to. And you’re involved. My New Year’s resolution is to blog less. Yes. You read that right. Less. It’s not to master a social network or double my page views or monetize. There’s nothing wrong with those goals. I’ve…

You’re interested, right? Because while I am convinced most of us are bloggers by now, I think you’ll find these apps fun and useful even if you…

How the Internet is like Chicken Shit Bingo

So, this happened last week. 7 years, 35,000 tweets, and this is the one that resonates with people. It completely baffles me. For a long time I thought that I was missing some key re-tweet-ability gene (and if we’re being perfectly honest, every gene related to being a successful blogger). I think I’m a hoot but apparently snort-laughing at yourself while…

Social Media Rule of 3

I’m employing the Social Media Rule of 3 this morning — If I’ve tried to chat it up with someone three times on Twitter and they haven’t replied, I’m unfollowing. It may sound harsh, but let me explain. Obviously, there are exceptions to this totally arbitrary rule. I don’t expect Jay-Z to take my restaurant recommendation and reply with what…

For a good time… #BlogathonATX

You’re going, right? You’re going to be there? Good. (I’m a bit of a hermit, so it’s good to know that friends will be there.) I’m so not digging the blogging conference scene lately, which is what makes BlogathonATX so great. It’s literally a day of blogging. Write posts, ask questions, get technical help, and stuff your face with local…
