@ginidietrich @tnfletch @seanmcginnis Not to get all braggy, but I'm sporting a "ladder" bracelet, and a single right now. We did our first glowing starburst yesterday...I might start taking orders and ditch my day job.

As I've tried to teach my kids...just because "everyone is doing it" doesn't mean you should. Also, not everyone is doing it.

That is so impressive I want to steal her for a guest post on a blog I'm helping out with...cough cough...Audrey give me a holler please.... Here's what I receive about 10 of, on a daily basis:
"Dear webmaster, I noticed your blog on the webs and give SEO great attention to which I would like to bring you post of goodness. I require one dofollow link. Tell me when I can expect to find this published."
I wish I were kidding.
The most infuriating thing about Miley Cyrus is that she actually has talent. Like @KristenDaukas I have children who loved Hannah Montana and now have dismissed her (thank heavens) as some kind of weirdo. It doesn't matter to me whether Miley herself is the mastermind of this horrifying sideshow, or whether she's being used by a cabal of industry sleazebags. It's all just very sad.

I spent the week at Disneyland, so I don't have a contribution, other than to say that the new Cars Radiator Springs ride is awesome. Anyway...
My first take on the "heels" post was that I was taught there were shoes for work functions and shoes for dating. The shoes in the picture were shoes for a date night. When I used to work in an office (for the "man"), I never wore open toe shoes, or shoes with a heel higher than about 3 inches to work. In my mind, it's more about appropriateness than sexism or health issues.

Your post is spot on. Instead of asking myself "will this webpage/content/video/etc get me more SEO juice" I'm solely focused on "will this webpage/content/video/etc be useful to my customer/prospect or their friends?" That approach has shown algorithm-change-resistant results for me.

That was fun Jayme! I seriously do hope that word spreads about the message mapping technique; I think it would really benefit lots of business people.

I love the idea of video testimonials, but how do you overcome the "shyness factor?" I've tippytoed into this arena a bit, and encountered some real resistance to being on video. Any tips and tricks to help ease the fear for customers?

The number-phobes and the grammar-phobes are like the Sharks and the Jets...we all just need to empathize more and stop menacing each other with brass knuckles.
@Jules Standen I like your site concept! I think the folks who are telling you that a landing page would help are correct...especially for those who aren't forum-savvy, it can be intimidating to figure out where the "entry point" is on a straight up categories and forums page. If you had a landing page with a nice visual, a quick summary of your site's purpose, and some member or topic highlights, that might help give an easier transition into the community, rather than BAM! here are all of our forums! (I say this as a forum fanatic since 1998)

How about setting up a Google hangout so that we can all do a lip sync faceoff? How fun would that be? My go-to song would be Shadow Dancing by Andy Gibb. Anyone in?

@LSSocialEngage @rosemaryoneill @yvettepistorio It's not quite as satisfying, but since I do a weekly review on Sunday, it helps to remember things you accomplished that may not have been on the original list. I do feel a little bit psycho for doing it though...

@LSSocialEngage @yvettepistorio OK, has anyone else ever written something on the list AFTER it's done, just so you can have the satisfaction of checking it off?
