Como criar um Blog - Blogger ou WordPress - [ Ferramentas Blog ] Millionaire Society Blog Marketing Tips by Blog Marketing Expert Jack Humphrey — Blog promotion, social marketing, and link building tips. Amazon, the Company That Ate the World Jeff Bezos is channeling Steve Jobs. It’s mid-September and the wiry billionaire founder of Amazon.com (AMZN) is at his brand-new corporate headquarters in Seattle, in a building named Day One South after his conviction that 17-year-old Amazon is still in its infancy. Almost giddy with excitement, Bezos retrieves one by one the new crop of dirt-cheap Kindle e-readers—they start at $79—from a hidden perch on a chair tucked into a conference room table. When he’s done showing them off, he stands up, and, for an audience of a single journalist, announces, “Now, I’ve got one more thing to show you.” Unlike a wave of other tablets that have emerged hopefully only to flop, such as the HP TouchPad, the Motorola Xoom, and the RIM PlayBook, the Kindle Fire has a good shot at turning the newest theater of war in high-tech into a two-tablet battle. “What we are doing is offering premium products at non-premium prices,” Bezos says. To demonstrate the Kindle Fire, Bezos pulls up a chair.
The Mogul Mom | For moms running a business, raising a family and rocking both How To Make An eBook Advertisement Making an eBook is easy, regardless of your coding experience. This is good, because 99.9% of your time should be spent on writing and getting your book out there, rather than on technology. EPUB And Kindle Any electronic book can be called an eBook, but because over 90% of all eBooks are read on Amazon’s Kindle, Apple’s iOS devices (iPad, iPhone and iPod) and the Barnes & Noble Nook, I’ll focus on the formats for those platforms: EPUB This is an open standard adopted by Apple (iOS), Barnes & Noble (Nook) and many other makers of eBook readers (such as Sony). Aside to geeks: The current version of EPUB is based on XHTML 1.1, which was officially proposed in 1999. What Kind Of Book Makes The Best eBook? EPUB was truly designed to display text, possibly with some inline images. eBooks don’t handle pictures well. Also keep in mind that more than half of all eBook-reading devices are black and white, which is another reason to steer clear of picture-based books. Coding By Hand <? (al)

Let’s look at a basic explanation of what blogs are and why you should be interested in starting your own. Blogging Basics The simple definition of a blog is a collection of frequent personal comments that are posted on the Internet and made available to the public.

The Content Strategist as Digital Curator The term “curate” is the interactive world’s new buzzword. During content creation and governance discussions, client pitches and creative brainstorms, I’ve watched this word gain traction at almost warp speed. As a transplant from museums and libraries into interactive media, I can’t help but ask what is it about this word that deserves redefinition for the web? Article Continues Below Curation has a distinguished history in cultural institutions. In galleries and museums, curators use judgment and a refined sense of style to select and arrange art to create a narrative, evoke a response, and communicate a message. For a long time, we’ve considered digital objects such as articles, slideshows, and video to be short-lived. Consider some examples: NYTimes.com Topics employs content managers who sift through The Times’ archive to create new meaning by grouping articles and resources that were filed away (or distributed to library databases). What’s the payoff?
How Do I Find My Niche or Passion? I received this question via AskJoelComm.com Joel, I can't find my passion. I have been a workaholic my whole life in areas that I do not enjoy. I don't even know what I enjoy doing. Exploring your passion is one way to find a niche.

Then, go to three people who know you fairly well and ask them to allow you to be narcicistic for a few minutes. Compare the lists and look for overlaps.
