It’s Tuesday already?

You know, nothing makes me laugh more than comment spam. Seriously! Sometimes it’s the typos, sometimes it’s that it was obviously translated from Russian to some other language and then English. But mostly, it’s that my blog has plenty of posts that these comments might apply to- but not on the post it was submitted on. Case in point, today’s gem: Thank you for such a fantastic blog. Where else could one get this kind of info written in such an incite full way? I have a presentation that I am just now working on, and I have been looking…

@OldSpice guy, I salute you!

It’s no secret that one of my favorite ad campaigns as of late are the Isaiah Mustafa Old Spice ads. The banter is clever, it’s intriguing… and oh, that voice! So far we’re up to four separate spots (I don’t know the actual names, but they are: “I’m on a horse”, Riding Backwards, Motorcycle in the Hot Tub, and Mustache), and just when I was concerned that this might lose steam, Old Spice guy has found a new way to win me over. Today, he’s replying to comments, blog posts and tweets right on the internet. All posted at @OldSpice…

Skimming tweets? Why?

Just a few minutes ago, I logged into Facebook to see that one of my favorite ex-Jungle Cruise Skippers, Dr. David Marley (comedian/professor) had posted this: So the GOP’s plan on stopping Kagan from getting on the Supreme Court is by attacking Thurgood Marshall, the nation’s first African-American Justice. Way to keep it racist, GOP! Why am I posting this? Almost immediately, two women that I don’t know personally replied that they weren’t racist. Which would be a valid response if he had remotely been calling out Republicans as a whole. Marley does tend to make fun of the GOP…

To Tweet or To Blog? That is The Question.

I admit, I’m not an expert on social media. I didn’t go to school to study it, but I have been on Twitter for 3 years, 3 months, 3 weeks, and 3 days*. I’ve followed people and companies alike, and have seen a lot of tactics that companies and individuals have employed in promoting themselves. These are my thoughts on tips for using Twitter more effectively for promoting yourself or an event. If you disagree or agree, I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments- mostly because there are no rules for Twitter Etiquette right now. Everyone has a…

Oh, Jim Carrey. Just stop tweeting.

Jim Carrey, once upon a time, I thought you were entertaining. Then you dated Jenny McCarthy and began spouting anti-vaccination nonsense. Yes, nonsense. There have been no studies that positively link vaccines to autism. Indeed, most studies seem to indicate that the timing of when certain vaccines are given is about the time that signs of autism begin to show in children. But studies haven’t been able to prove that it’s the vaccines. Not only that, you’ve blocked or ignored anyone who tried to offer scientific proof that you might be wrong. Not exactly a way to prove that you’re…

Southwest vs the power of the ‘net: Kevin Smith wins

One of the stories now flooding the mainstream news, but already over the Twittersphere was Kevin Smith being ejected from a Southwest Airlines flight. He was told it was because he violated their “Customers of Size” policy (which says that any customer who is unable to lower both armrests must purchase two seats). Interestingly enough, Smith HAD purchased two seats on his original flight, but when on standby for an earlier flight was only able to get one. And was able to lower the armrests. Yet was still asked to leave. Southwest of course, is embarrassed. They offered him a…
