This year, at BlogWorld and New Media Expo, Danny Brown and I are speaking! Yes, together and yes, it’s going to be legen (wait for it) dary! Initially our blog topic was “Doucheblogs and Spin Doctors,” but some corporate suit was offended by that title so they asked us to change it. I guess he didn’t want to fly across the country to listen to all [&hellip... Read More

Sean McGinnis consults with small to mid-size customers about DCAL – Digital Customer Acquisition and Loyalty. He blogs about SEO, Internet marketing, social  media, leadership and a variety of other topics at 312 Digital. At face value, the new Google +1 seems like their latest foray into the world of “social” but it’s really much more than that. The +1 button is an incredibly important play for [&hellip... Read More

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

It’s been said, that the hardest words in the English language are I love you and I’m sorry. Last week a colleague no-showed for a scheduled conference call. It wasn’t really that big of a deal, because I was at my desk, and had other things to work on (you know, like the Spin Sucks Pro launch), but I did have errands to run and I was [&hellip...

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

Brian Meeks has delusions of novelist, which he feeds by writing the Henry Wood Detective series (Available soon and on his blahg) Kathryn sat at her desk watching her Twitter stream on TweetDeck.  There were a couple of people talking about a movie; she hesitated to jump in, because she had been watching for while. It always stressed her out, to feel like a lurker. Her [&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
