Community Management – More than just tweeting and posting

Last night in Aurora Colorado, during a midnight screening of the new Batman Movie, a 24-year-old gunman dressed head-to-toe in protective tactical gear, set off two devices before spraying the theater with bullets from an AR-15 rifle, a 12-gauge shotgun and at least one of two .40-caliber handguns that police recovered at the scene. What causes someone to plan, setup, and carry out a horrific act of violence against innocent human beings?   There is no excuse! Absolutely nothing that can bring back the 12 dead out of 59 people that were made victims through this heinous act.  Let’s pray that this … Continue reading Community Management – More than just tweeting and posting

Is Your Blog Creating Long Term Relationships or Short Term Gain?

After reading so much today about Blog Podium and after a slight hiccup in my desire to continue blogging, I asked myself what do I want from my blog. Working full-time at a marketing agency, running my own small business on the side, and blogging is no simple task.  Adding laundry, chaffering and working out to the mix, can make blogging a distant thought.  However, it is my love.  I love my blog and how I feel when I’m sharing my thoughts and ideas. I have done a few giveaways this year and conducted some celebrity interviews.  I always respond … Continue reading Is Your Blog Creating Long Term Relationships or Short Term Gain?
