Social Media: Six Dos and Six Don’ts

Friday, September 23rd, 2011

I had hoped to have a follow-up post about Facebook’s Subscribe feature, but unfortunately that’s just not going to happen today – look for it early next week.

Instead, I happened upon this great little Dos and Don’ts post from Blue Avocado. There are six pairs of Dos and Don’ts but the author summarizes them nicely right up front:

Ultimately, understanding yourself and your audience is more central to a successful social media presence than mastering the minutiae of Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.

A Pomplamoose Christmas Message

Wednesday, December 23rd, 2009

One quick post before Christmas. Have you discovered Pomplamoose yet? No, not the fruit, the band! They are, in a word, amazing. They do really cool music video covers of really cool songs. Here are a few of my faves. But don’t watch those yet, watch the one below – it’s the coolest one yet and all Christmas-y.

Oh, and the goat message at the end? I have an alternative suggestion below the video – so watch it and then scroll down.

Giving a goat through World Vision is a great idea, but it isn’t the only way to divert Christmas spending to those in need. I humbly suggest the Gifts of Change catalogue from The Presbyterian Church in Canada. There are opportunities there to help out those in need overseasor here at home.
