Not only do I feel like I could be friends with @TaraGeissinger I'm pretty sure we already were friends in a past life... that's how tight we're gonna be. Happy to meet an SEO superhero and a friend of yours, Gini.

Brilliant!! Did you coin this term, Intrapreneur or am I going to google it and be disappointed?

Great intro. Here's her at work, here's her at home. Here's her on Gini's blog... and you have to rock pretty hard to get a friday feature from G-Unit. I'll go show how good of a stealthy cyber stalker I can be. Oh wait, that sounds creepy. Ahh whatever. Happy friday, Crazies.

Gini, you're soooo right about this post being for me!! Mr. @Paul M Bowers definitely knows what he's talking about!!! It sounds like you'll be giving me a run for my instamoney in no time. Not that I'm a "pro" by any means, I just play one on Instagram, but the takeways you shared from his workshop should be read by all who want to improve their photo snapping swag. I made up a lil rhyme based on my old Football Coaches advices "If you're high, your pic will be crap; if you're low you'll deliver a good snap". Of course I've taken lots of pictures standing up, but many of my most popular shots have come from a lower vantage point because most everyone takes pictures at chest level! Not that I blog much anymore, but I've started producing logos and slides from my photos and everyone wow's over them. Believe it or not one of my best was from inside a yellow porta potty on a bright sunny day. I didn't even have to go, I just knew that the glowing plastic with those lines would turn out to be a wicked background for something. Wow - I've blabbered on for far too long. Great write-up and great guidance, Paul.

what @katskrieger said... her comment is so much better than what mine would have been so I'm going to be an example of what not being creative looks like.

It doesn't work for people with MEGAPHONITIS WHO CONSTANTLY TELL YOU TO DO THIS AND THAT ACROSS ALL PLATFORMS. Engage me, don't sell me.
I was 5 for 5 thinking I'm da entrepreneurial bomb... still strong at 8/10. Then I pretty much stumbled to the finish line with 10 outta 17. I'm my own worst enemy. I've known you for approximately 532 days, 7 hours, and 32 minutes and you know I talk a good game. Obviously I suck at execution cuz the only thing I've scaled is a wall of frustration! Love this piece Gini D. That's why you pay you the big bucks!

Thank you for admiting what people beat around the bush about. It's totally about making people feel validated and important. Who doesn't like to be affirmed? I remember the day you called me the smartest person in the world and that I was incredibly good looking. I'd run through a wall for you, now! Oh what's that... you didn't say that? Must have been someone else, but still, you really are the smartest person I know (that's named Gini). Seriously, you are. And when people ask me about examples of community - I point them here. I've maintained a relationship with more than a dozen folks I've met right here on Spin Sucks. That, my friends, is priceless.

Hey - I guess you could hire me after all, I can do a few of those things you mentioned :)
Besides, my secret weapon is when I untuck my shirt and tug down at my pants so you see the waistband of my boxers. It's pretty irresistable, I mean it works .67% of the time all the time. Ok, it doesn't work at all. Screw finacial services, I'm ready to be a stripping PR pro!!

6 months, 2 weeks ago on Three Data Points to Measure Your Blog Efforts
Dear SM ROI experts... you can't calculate the return on investment for someone who goes to your store or ends up buying something on your site because they like your social media swag but didn't directly respond to your link. Sometimes you have to be more like Rainman than Pythagoras when it comes to measuring intangible results.

Really solid points, appreciate you adding your perspective! Thanks
6 months, 3 weeks ago on Has Instagram become Pornstagram?
Great point! I've also thought about that but both of those pages you mentioned have posted selfies of their models that were submitted to them. I don't think they own those pics. Furthermore, if that rule were actually enforced, virtually EVERY shoutout page would need to be shutdown. Take the chive's site for example, those are submitted by the girls pictured. There's no ownership there. That section of the terms is in place to deter folks ripping off other people's work and passing out off as their own, IMHO. Regardless, does it mean it's ok to violate other terms if you own the picture?
