Using Social Media to ENGAGE, not just PROMOTE.

I don’t know if you remember the tutu fiasco that took over the world of runners a few weeks ago, but our local running group on Facebook decided to show our #tutusolidarity at a local 5K this week. The PR team of the 5K really helped get into via Twitter. @misszoot We would love that!! The Double Helix Dash is tutu-friendly and like @glamrunner is raising funds for a great cause! — HudsonAlpha (@hudsonalpha) March 27, 2014 And then! The local Huntsville Visitor’s Center mascot go into it…letting us make him a tutu! I don't even care @misszoot, I am...

Commenting On Comments

(I stole that from the corporate entity known as Daily Grace. Not from the human Grace Helbig who you should subscribe to here.) So, there was a Twitter conversation started yesterday about commenting on blogs. Well, first it we me irritated with the continuing statements I see about how “No one blogs anymore.” That irritates me because I still read TONS of blogs. Some of the old staples and a-listers may not blog the way they used to (if at all) but many still do, and BILLIONS of new ones have popped up. ANYWAY – the conversation THEN moved to...

And how GREAT would it be to start 2014, the second decade of my blogging career, with the 5,000th entry. Wouldn’t that be a GREAT thing to be able to do?

I love using Monday as...

Oh, Man. My Blog Brain Hurts.

So…just as soon as I get everything kinda how it was before on my blog migration…even kinda better if you consider how much unused baggage I left behind at the old host. I log in this morning and think I guess I can update WordPress now and after I do? BAM! Everything is all different on this end too! AAGGGG. I have a blog headache. I mean…New WordPress is pretty! But I’ve just finally got my site to look the way I like it on the FRONT end, now the backend has all changed and I just need a break...
