Happy Mother’s Day!

Ah Mother’s Day. A Hallmark holiday. A made-up tradition. One that is celebrated around the world because of something we conjured up in America. But, regardless of it being a made-up holiday, it’s an important one. It’s a day for us to reflect on the people who gave us life, both biologically and raising us. Some of us were adopted. Some of us were raised by [&hellip... Read More

Facebook Does Not Mean Private

It’s Facebook question of the week time and, because I did a video on Tuesday, you get prose today instead. Well, that and I’m lazy again this morning. I still need to ride so no video for you! Nancy Davis is an avid Spin Sucks reader and one of the sane commenters in a sea of crazies (myself included). She works and lives in Jersey and, I [&hellip... Read More

Take the Easy Route. Everyone Is Doing It.

This past weekend, Danny Brown, Geoff Livingston, and I had an email conversation about the sameness of the blogosphere. Mark Schaefer has long called it the social media chamber: Something I’ve always been overly sensitive to not becoming. Tools such as Storify quickly aggregates content, without having to create it. And paper.li pulls tweets into a newspaper-like format for you to share with your followers. Things [&hellip... Read More

No, it’s not Facebook question of the week time. So why the video, you ask? Because it’s here! It’s finally here. The launch of Spin Sucks Pro. Yesterday was, um, challenging (to say the least) and, at 5:00, we decided it was better to wait until this morning than to launch after everyone had gone home for the night... Read More

Death of Bin Laden Spreads Rapidly through Social Media

With the news last night of Osama Bin Laden being killed, I’m not sure anything PR or marketing related today is appropriate. I made the joke late that I was sure the President was so threatened by Spin Sucks Pro that he had to upstage us. Or maybe he was really wanting the attention back on the United States after the Royal Wedding. Kind of funny? OK. [&hellip... Read More

The big SOBCon is happening as I type and, while I was unable to attend this year (forthcoming Spin Sucks Pro launch, cough), I did manage to make it over to the opening night party, hosted by Social Media Club, on Thursday night. I tell you this because I quite unexpectedly, and very pleasantly, had the opportunity to meet Cindy King from Social Media Examiner. Notwithstanding [&hellip... Read More

I told you I’m obsessed! I promised Lisa Gerber I’d watch the wedding with her, so I’m DYING right now! I cheated a little bit and watched them leave the church and saw the two kisses, but no wedding yet! And come on. Even for you haters (cough, Danny Brown), you have to admit they look completely and totally in love. And she is drop-dead gorgeous [&hellip... Read More
