@PegFitzpatrick You know, I did try it, just to look for content and didn't find anything remotely interesting to me. Well, OK, the one about pennies repelling slugs caught my attention, but business-wise, not so much. :) Maybe at certain times it's better for promoting than mining for content?

Three of my favorite things in one article - cupcakes, sprinkles and Pinterest! I've been doing #1 and #2 for ages and I must say, it makes a huge difference. Even though I don't have a lot of time to spend on Pinterest, I get a huge amount of traffic from it. It works great for one of our clients, too.
The only one I don't currently use is the #pinoftheday. I'm going to give that a try! It's a great way to find good content to share, too. Always a pleasure to read your posts, Peg. :)
Pinned! Awesome as always, Peg. You turned me on to Feedly a few months back on a HubSpot webinar and I haven't looked back. I'm curious about StumbleUpon. Have you found it to be useful to spreading your own content, or mainly for finding good stuff to share? Debating whether it's worth a go (also considering Reddit), but there are only so many hours in a day!

I was so glad to see this, "Highlighting the nice things your client’s say about you by reposting, retweeting, or favoriting the tweet all boost your brand’s online mojo." Some people have said this is bragging, but it's not! It's sharing a testimonial. Sure, I don't want to see this in someone's feed every day, but there's nothing wrong with letting people see that your customers appreciate you once in a while.
Also, really fun ideas to spice things up a bit. Sharing!

@PegFitzpatrick Exactly! Will do. Honestly, I'll probably get distracted and.... :D

Thanks so much for the IFTTT recipe! I kind of want to IFTTT everything now :)
@KatherineKotaw Exactly! And, whether that's what a person means (they don't want to speak with me again) or not, that's what I'm hoping for at that point :). Haha, yes, "have a lovely day, I'm sure we will speak soon, buh-bye" (I'm fairly certain I say "buh-bye", which is a little embarrassing. Ha!

Yes! You covered manners, but my particular peeve is that people don't seem to feel the need to sign off with a "bye" anymore. I might just be old-fashioned, but "OK, thanks." just doesn't feel like the proper way to end a phone call - especially a business call.
Great article, though I hope you are wrong about #4 :) I just listened to a webinar, though, that said that the link to the actual image is now "no-follow" so the only links that are "do-follow" are the ones in the pin descriptions. Is that accurate, as far as you know? And, what is the official stand on pinning your own stuff? I pin items from all over, but definitely include my own, too!
