Young PR & social media pro rocking it out from Detroit.
@MelissaSteinbergBrodsky Thank you, Melissa! I can relate. Sometimes, I feel like I write the same thing over and over again. It's refreshing to find new words and new ways to think about concepts to make the writing more engaging for both the reader and the author.

@stacystilly Thanks, Stacy! Wish you could have made it out.
Great post, Luke! Unintended audiences is a great one to keep in mind. Especially in social media, if your content has energy and is relevant to more than just your niche audience, you can attract more followers. I also love this phrase: "Maintain verb-driven, dynamic prose." I love your writing, Luke!

You and Nikki will be happy to know I deleted 120 items from my desktop! You should all know that Kristi has the cutest notepad with sections for "Do", "Call" and "Email" she fills out, which I have had thoughts of stealing from her. With so many things happening at once in the social media space, I also have to write everything down, or I will forget all the little things.

Great work, Ron! What an inspiring story, and I love the mobile and social support. I personally used Couch25K app to train for my first 5K that I had ever been able to run without stopping back in July, and I use MapMyRun to keep track of my workouts so that I can keep breaking my personal records. Keep it up, and good luck on your 5K next month!

I only like canned tuna and mayonaise together, on Saturday afternoon, with some celery in it to break up the mushiness. I will not eat them separate or on any other occasion.It took me 25 years to like cream cheese, only because the convenience and availability of bagels has increased substantially past the availability to toast them and put butter on them. I remain firm in my decision to never, ever eat the sour grossness of sour cream, and will scrape off every last little speck of it when the food preparer decides not to listen and plops it on anyway.

Five (of countless) reasons why I love Leisa: 1. Turkey jerky. 2. Spongebob Band-Aids. 3. Answers to math and Excel questions I can never wrap my head around.
4. Real flowers so gorgeous that I always think they're fake. 5. Holiday cheer!

@rogcast81 That can be one of the hardest steps to accomplish, so that's a great step in the right direction, Roger. There are still many organizations of all sizes in this position, and I think this book is very much geared towards that situation. Hope you're able to check it out, it would be very helpful. Good luck!

@redbone210 Probably not... there's some creepy sounding ones, and some weird ones, but I try to find the ones that are 10 minutes long. Hope you found one!

Same way. Yoga will have the same effect, I am the same angry nut job without a good hot yoga sessions 4-5 times a week, and a run on the days I don't. Meditation is quite a challenge though... tried doing it for a few months and couldn't, and then just was angry at this reaffirmation of my rampant ADHD. Try guided meditations on YouTube if you must.
@mclean_don Thank you, Don. Way to be the social media trailblazer for your company! I'm positive you would benefit from this book :)
@Dani Raymond I did a lot of that too, Dani, and it is great experience while you're still in school. Keep showing that initiative and learning, and it will pay off! You can use what you learn in internships and non-profit work. This book is a great source of information for what you will need to know in the business world!
@TMariePR Wow! Honestly, I never even thought of social media in religious organizations, but that is great to hear. I love that you're using it to reach out to your community. Good luck :)
@emilyvontom We didn't have any social media classes yet, so I read anything about social media I could get my hands on. This would be a great read for you, Emily!
@mikekmcclure So clever. Thanks, Mike!
Concise, yet comprehensive strategy- in true @Nikki Little fashion! I think any size company, from a local, small business to a large company with multiple, national locations can benefit from this strategy. I imagine that some steps will be more important or laborious for some, depending on the size of the company and current state of their online presence, but this plan can definitely help anyone take control of their social media presence and move it in the right direction.
