Headlines gone awry or why are we focusing on the worst parts of our content?

If we want to be a more warm, fuzzy, inclusive, and maybe better species, we need to make a conscious effort to stop dividing ourselves. Let’s take control! Continue reading

Step up to save lives

Normally, this blog is dedicated to the professional, nonfuzzy side of my life. I may still be zany, a little off the wall, and look at things differently, but in this site, you should be safe from the work I do for and with animal rescues. I’m sorry, but today I will be breaking that … Continue reading

Don’t fake it, interact!

I am officially over the ever sought-after like, +, star, or what have you.  Facebook, Google +, WordPress, Foursquare, your phony forms of interaction bore me and I vote have no relevance. Twitter, yours is ok. Not great, but an RT, much like a share, does indicate a certain attachment and actual interest in the … Continue reading

Don’t expect us to make it easy

You’ve all heard about this So I can now share with you a really nitpicky observation about the Wall Street Journal’s share of Target’s, well let’s just be nice and say interesting, labeling issue.

A mysterious silence

Today, I noticed something odd.  A fluff piece, with no clear intention or point, that was created to show support.  Normally fluff pieces aren’t my style anyway, especially when they don’t deign to answer the 5 Ws of journalism (as a reminder, those are Who, What, Where, Why, and When), but this one really vexes … Continue reading

We all know sex sells. Shoot, it even hooked me for a second and a half or at least the claim of a … … Continue reading

What I’ve been reading 7/16-7/24/2012

While I’m on the search for the as much knowledge as humanly possible, I’ve been roaming around the interwebz this past week. As previously discussed, I have the hopes of actually being able to help someone by sharing my reading history and as not previously discussed, this might also help me remember what I read … Continue reading

So little to say, so many ways to say it

Ready for a little blasphemy? Here’s a question I would like you to ponder: Really, how much does your business, organization, or group have to say? How much do YOU have to say? You can keep pondering that while I continue this ramble.

My #socialtestdrive experience with the Ford Taurus Limited

Ages ago (in social media time) I was lucky enough to take place in the #socialtestdrive campaign for the Suburban Collection. They gave me a beautiful, fully loaded Ford Taurus Limited Edition.  Isn’t she pretty?  Yes, I said she. First of all, let me preface my experience review with two personal facts: I drive small … Continue reading

6/29/2012 Reading list

Today I spent some time brushing up om my #CMGR reading. Why?  Why not? Social media is nothing if not community (unless it’s a network and yes, in the future, that difference will be more clearly expounded upon in some way, shape, or form) So, what did I read today?
