SEOmoz Webinar Review: Connecting the Dots – Social Media for the SEO

Last Thursday I attended a webinar hosted by Jen Lopez and Erica McGillivray of SEOmoz.  The webinar was entitled, “Connecting the Dots: Social Media for the SEO” and it was surprisingly insightful!  Usually I tend to find webinars on social media to be boring, way too introductory and overrun with information that should be common sense to those working in the industry.  But this one was different.  For those who missed out, here are my notes … [Read more...]

Could your friends be “Professionally Dangerous”?

On the surface, it seems like having friends who are willing to go to bat for your would be a good thing.  Everyone wants friends who will defend them against those who wish them harm.  But sometimes this can be taken too far, especially on the internet where anonymity makes many people more bold and outspoken than normal.

Is live blogging the new black?

This idea just occurred to me the other day as I was making my morning rounds, checking up on my favorite blogs.  One that I’ve been following religiously for some time is Eventing Nation.  This past weekend was an important one on the sport of eventing because it was the 50th anniversary running of the Burghley CCI**** event in England.  Not only is this one of the largest and most challenging competitions in the world, but this year it is … [Read more...]

The ‘quake Heard ‘Round the World: A look at Social News Sharing

Nothing sets the social media abuzz like a natural disaster, right?  Yesterday marked a first experience for me and many others around the area: An earthquake.  The normal reaction in this sort of situation would probably be to crouch under a desk or get to some other secure location.  But here in the office we just turned around in our swivel chairs, looked at each other quizzically, and then immediately updated our Facebook statuses and … [Read more...]

Getting Stuff Done Board: Simple Project Management Without Software

This week we implemented a new method of project management... or is it an old one? Despite the fact that the boss is obsessed with trying out new software tools, and that many of us here are very technical people who work with computers all day, we decided to try out a "new tool" to help us manage projects and tasks that isn't really all that new—the whiteboard. We've lovingly dubbed our new whiteboard the "GSD" Board or "Getting Stuff … [Read more...]
