@PegFitzpatrick Thanks so much for including my video in your awesome post here... This is a very important topic because many people don't realize the culture of Google Plus. (just fyi, it's Hanley, not Handley).

This is what has everyone all crazy, "The domain of the blogger was no longer the domain of the conversation." I have mixed feelings on this whole issue. I know its better for brands if the conversation is happening all in one place, but it is better for consumers?
Take for instance this comment I'm making now. I'm sharing my thoughts with you @Danny Brown and your community, but NOT my community. Not the people that I discuss topics like this with all the time...
...I want them to be involved as well, especially on G+, so I'll share this post and then begin a conversation in that community instead of leaving a comment here, 9 out of 10 times.
Does that make sense?

I love this quote, “Content marketing is content with a strategy.”
The cost of content is an issue that's been on my brain a lot lately. Not just the cost in terms of dollars but also Time. The days of slapping something together and publishing with any success are over. We need to plan and execute our marketing strategy with a level of professionalism that wasn't necessary two years ago...
The conference with Mark sounds awesome.

I completely agree with the idea that "just because you're the most disruptive kid in the class doesn't mean you'll get the best grades..."
As the SEO world matures success is going to swing back from tactics and tricks to quality of content created. I firmly believe that true value creators will always rise to the top no matter what new social network or digital marketing tactic is hot in that moment.

@Danny Brown You inspired me to switch back to Genesis which I did last night. I'm now promising myself I won't change designs for at least 6 months... Is there such a thing as DIY Web Design Anonymous?

@Danny Brown I didn't realize that... Sneaky buggers. Thanks Danny. I'm digging the new theme.
I understood what they were doing until the $999 price tag. You can only use Facebook?
Why wouldn't I buy a MacBook or Chromebook and use everything for the same price or less? Seems crazy to me. Additionally does The Facebook give them the ability to put ads anywhere they want all the time in my Facebook experience?
It's amazing how much trouble a little bit of curiosity can get you in... Like when Redbull wondered why you couldn't have a dude jump out of a spaceship or when someone asked what comes between Brooke Shields and her Calvins...
Appreciate the article Gini.

My personal brand is changing the way Independent Insurance Agencies tell their story and deliver value to consumers...
Great thoughts @ginidietrich ... I firmly believe in the personal brand in addition to the business brand.
We still do business with people first.

I love the idea of ending spin, but to think that it will be archaic in 5 years seems like a stretch to me. That being said I do think that there will be clear delineation between the transparent organizations providing honest information and the media outlets still spinning.

The sites have to be completely different? Could you use sub-domains or some sort of deliniated tagging or categorization through archives that gives each Category area a different feel based on the state but ultimately keep the authority with the same domain?
Obviously I don't know the rules for the Industry you're working with but it would seem like there'd have to be a creative solution to keep max authority.

I think you've found your voice, witty, smart, honest, but the best thing about blogging is tomorrow you can post a new post and try something else... Or drill down farther on this one or maybe try video or audio or come up with list or a review and tell a story or a joke and get nitty gritty on something that really burns you or something that excites you.
Worrying about finding your voice is pointless. You already have a voice. The tick is using it.
All the best and thanks for love...

Love that plugin!

Very nice... The title or "hook" is so important to gaining the attention of potential readers. The Title gets people in the door and no matter how good your content is if people don't read it... Nothing happens because of it.

@Danny Brown Who the hell wants to read the Truth?

@Danny Brown And the thing is a CEO can still be a large part of the Social Media presence and NOT be tweeting all day.
People that write crap like "Obama should be Tweeting" are either Zealots or straight Bonkers and either way we shouldn't be listening to these people.
Thanks for a great article!
@JohnMorgan John, I see your point as the True power in Advocates versus Influences... The repetition of the message. Advocates help you realize you have a need for the product versus an influencer who simply shows you a potential solution to a potential problem...

@Danny Brown Sounds about right... Have a good weekend dude!
1 year, 4 months ago on 5 Ideas for Filler Blog Posts When You Are Out of... Ideas
@Danny Brown I personally have added a couple features to my blog that I would not have had either you or FBBB listed that feature in a post...
So I'm a Fan. I don't see what all the hate is about.
Everyone bashes List Post then when one is produced everyone reads it and shares it... So when you don't have anything good to write about (or even if yo do) a List Post is never a bad idea.
