Tips on personal brand as it pertains to painting your shoes
I was going to write a long post about personal brand, and how I don’t really believe in it as a phrase. I believe in protecting your good name, and standing for something, but I personally am not a product, I personally can’t be bought (only rented) and it was going to be this long diatribe. Then...

Community Tip of the Day: Send A Latte of Human Kindness
Ah community. Where the seething hordes of imbeciles and bad spellers heckle the makers of perfect prose. Where the trolls and the ogres outpace a Tolkien novel. Where There Be Dragons. ...But when it shines, it really shines. For example, there is a Facebook photo album I became aware...

Community Tip of the Day: The Atreides Bought Loyalty with Loyalty
Warning: this is one of those Betsy posts where I combine a lot of disparate points. :) One of my late night reading addictions recently has been watching the personal finance/frugality bloggers expound as we go throught this economic downturn. Personal finance/frugal bloggers in the tradition...

Community Tip of the Day: New Year's Resolutions
1. Blog more. Try not to suck. 2. Come up with a phrase that is a counterpart (but not the opposite) of "Blog Smart." A phrase that is the opposite of Blog Boring 'n' Safe but not the opposite of Blog While Still Employed. 2. Yes, this is the second 2. Be willing to revisit old ground to learn...

Washington State Dept of Transportation on Twitter - nice job!
By now you've seen the photo of the overhanging buses, heard the mockery of Fargo, for the Redmond wimpiness and realized that Seattleites just can't drive in the snow. If you need even more voyeurism (or are just trying to get to that last-minute Christmas purchase and need a heads up, check out...

Community Tip of the Day: Building Community from Scratch
In the last community tip of the day I talked about moderation - that is, the ability to undo, modify or delete user-generated content or prevent access by said users to your community system.

Community Tip of the Day: Write from your best place (or sing, or dance)
Where do you begin when you show people who you are? In a previous post I mentioned briefly how people construct a sense of you - your Internet presence - on things as little as 140 characters in a twitter tweet. This can be extended to a 90-second podcast, a 500-word blog post, or your entire usenet...

Community Tip of the Day: Everything in Moderation
Let's face it; everyone in America loves, but not in moderation. Fame? More of that. Money? Second heapin' helping please. Cool gadgets? Yeah I have two phones but I need to get another one. Make sure it has an "i" or an "e" at the beginning, that's more Web 3.0. But social media applications need...

Community Tip of the Day: Commanding Presence
One amazing thing about the Internet is that no one knows you are a dog. More than that, you can fool the Internet into thinking you are two dogs -- or three dogs, or just a hyperactive cat with a twitter account. In the last community tip I talked about having the right attitude, being able to...
