This was my first “real” blogging/ social media event, I’ve done some wine related tweet ups and a meet up in San Francisco at some point, but not a conference like this. We did not attend any of the sessions (talks, and there were a ton) because my goal was to explore the expo … [Read more...]
Who Are You?
If you approach me on a social networking site in the hopes that I will follow you or accept your friend request, there are some simple guidelines… 1) Have a photo of YOU for your avatar…if you’re a business I understand you can’t do that sometimes, but it’s always nice to … [Read more...]
The Power In Moments
We often times seem so quick to speak negatively about something or someone when we each know that is the furthest thing from productive as we could be. What are we attempting to accomplish by doing this? I don’t think there is a good answer to that question. There are, however, … [Read more...]
Social Media: There Is No One Right Way
The spreading of information and ideas, along with conversation, is the only way to grow. There has been much conversation about Twitter, for example, becoming a big RSS feed and how that is a bad thing…really? Why is that bad? Twitter is not Facebook is not LinkedIn is not … [Read more...]

To Royal Wedding Or Not To Royal Wedding?
What’s the big damn deal about the “Royal Wedding”? I mean, on the surface I understand…heir to the throne and all that crap…but who really cares and why? Do you have a life? Are you a groupie that lives vicariously through famous people? I’m partially being sarcastic…but … [Read more...]
