It finally dawned on me, after yet another useless waste of my time skimming headlines in a social media site, why I don’t like social media and why, if I bother to join, I quickly lose interest. It’s because the content that’s posted isn’t for me. The motivation for posting is to get yourself, your web site, your business, your articles, your blog, your products, your services, your brand, your weird user name and your big important thing noticed, foundRead more…

I hate to get stuck on a position. Whenever I do, I’m no longer open to learning. I turned my back on social media after experiencing the cruelty at Digg and mistakenly allowed that to color my perspective for all forms of social media. Shortly after that Digg experience, I happened to have the chance to talk about social media with some friends in the search marketing industry. 10e20′s, Chris Winfield, was the most positive voice and did his bestRead more…

The first new thing to appear on my radar today is MyBlogLog’s new tagging system that I didn’t ask for. This is coming on the heels of the Twitter add-on I didn’t ask for either. I’m one of the stubborn user personas they aren’t aware of yet. I know this because to get to any task that matters to me, I have to scroll down the page and wait for it to appear. For usability, it’s never a good thingRead more…

It occurred me this week, after seeing my old rant against Digg still pulling in traffic to this blog, that I would be nice and just act normal for once. I’d write a humorous 10 Tips article on usability and see if it inspired any Diggs. Maybe this time I’d have a positive experience because I swear all my friends just rave about the place. Turns out, some of my SEO friends couldn’t Digg it. They had to refrain fromRead more…

If you want to know if social media traffic is worthwhile, or not, I recommend attending the free online Social Media: Should You Digg It? class. I sat in on today’s presentation and found it informative and insightful, especially when Matt Bailey delivered his statistical information. This class is part of the ClickTracks Virtual Classroom Series: Online Marketing & Web Analytics. In today’s one hour offering, hosted by the charming John Marshall, (love his British accent) with Search Engine Guide’sRead more…

I’m too scared to post to my blog today. I’ve been reading other blogs and apparently, there are so many rules for making a good, (but-they-don’t-exist), “A-list” blog, or even a blog worth adding to RSS feeds, that I’m completely frozen in fear. If I make one single mistake here, I risk losing readers. Sigh. Okay. I’m pretending you all are naked….now, I can continue. What’s happening here? There’s a growing backlash against Web 2.0? There’s a rush to rolloutRead more…
