Don’t worry! We know it can be a scary prospect, you are making a jump into the great unknown…it’s a place where you won’t be reporting to your boss, where you will find yourself doing different jobs you may never have done before…. being a sales person, your own marketing department, the decision maker, and the grafter…. but is it worth it? Let’s balance the pros and cons, and look at some of the things you might want to consider….
If you thought my Type-A agenda planning was bordering on madness, you may be even more concerned with the way I pack a suitcase.
First, this blog post is admittedly long overdue. We promised a post-SXSWi panel in March, and . . . let’s just say it’s taken us a while to fully recover from the madness. We appreciate those that came to the Omni to listen to our panel on Social Flubs ( listen to the podcast ). It was a lively discussion with some great feedback.
Social Media: If Content Is King, Then Storytelling Is Queen. 18 Checkpoints To Consider. | Social Media PearlsIn my previous post, I touched on content marketing and I emphasized throughout the post the importance of quality content. But what does that mean? If content is king, surely storytelling must be queen! What do I mean by this? I think storytelling is an important part of blogging . I have read many blogs, articles and as I step back to reflect on those that I would consider to be the cream of the crop, I can identify three components to online storytelling.
As we have previously seen, Tumblr allows its uses to create custom themes giving the owner of a tumbleblog the ability to truly customise their tumbleblog to be their own. While tumblr coding is fairly easy to pick up compared to other more complex blogging systems, I want to give you an insight into the code and structure we are going to be deploying next time around when we set about converting a psd to tumblr.

Curation is a long-standing tradition of collecting, saving, and organizing objects. This typically consisted of books and historical materials for museums or organizations that held historic value for culture preservation. Today it takes on a different meaning. Organizations have evolved from collecting artifacts to digital curation of media and content. While the role of curation has largely belonged to scientists and scholars, and the content from official sources, social media has tipped curation on its head. Heck, even the Library of Congress decided to begin archiving tweets in October 2010.
On Tuesday, February 28th, a twenty-nine-year-old Canadian male fan of Suzanne Collins’s dystopian young adult trilogy, “The Hunger Games,” logged onto the popular blogging platform Tumblr for the first time and created a site he called Hunger Games Tweets . The young man, whom I’ll call Adam, had been tracking a disturbing trend among Hunger Games enthusiasts: readers who could not believe—or accept—that Rue and Thresh, two of the most prominent and beloved characters in the book, were black, had been posting vulgar racial remarks. Adam, who read and fell in love with the trilogy last year, initially encountered these sorts of sentiments in the summer of 2011, when he began visiting Web sites, forums, and message boards frequented by the series’s fans, who were abuzz with news about the film version of the book. (The movie, released a week ago today, made a staggering $152.5 million during its first three days of release.)
