I'm an amateur cook, writer, skiier, and human. Social media marketing is what I know to do best. Nutella is what I eat the most.

@jasonkonopinski @Crestodina Sorry, I don't understand. How is it that keywords and trends could be a deadly combination for content generation?

@ginidietrich YAY! I love Matt! He curates one of the best sites on the internet: videos of explosions from around the world. Fireworks factories, nuclear plants, meteors--you name it. He should tell you about it; it's really fantastic. :)

So the sky isn't falling?! :) The future's in content engagement: great content, great engagement as a result. We wrote about post about it this week @AddThis. If we're only losing a piece of the pie, our strategy shouldn't fall under because, well, it shouldn't be solely based on that one piece of the pie. There's so much data out there! ALL THE DATA!!!
PREACH IT, GIRL! This is about women making smart choices, especially investing in a "plan B" that can get you back up on your feet. And sadly, not many women think this way, and I don't know why. Nothing in this life is guaranteed, and credit runs out quickly. Gosh, and I know women who are in this situation now. It makes me anxious for them.

@RebeccaToddThat was the ultimate in snake creepiness. And the "diff between cats and dogs" video reminded me of this one (you may have seen): http://youtu.be/wtYm2yPRGSA

YES! Thanks for this, @AmyVernon ! I've actually been wanting to read something on spam since, for some reason, my email spam count has gone up 3-4x in the past few weeks. After getting invitations to save hostages in Siberia or meet a young girl online, I always think to myself, "If I worked for a spam company, I'd help them target their email marketing much better." LOL! Thanks for the laughs, Amy!
@RebeccaTodd @stevenmcoyle Yes. It's an immaturity/unprofessional-thing. I wouldn't have done that either at 21 because I had long-term goals for my career. And this goes for anyone in any position at any age who doesn't lash out and burn bridges on their way out of a position. Maturity and professionalism. I think those are two questions to inquire about when hiring new staff.
