WireTap Anywhere and GarageBand

WireTap Anywhere - Add Device

For the past three weeks I have been gearing up for a new podcast that I’m starting up with my buddy Shayne. My goal has been to find a combo of hardware and software that I could use on my Mac so that I could easily port the setup around and record my podcast from […]

Get rid of what's stopping you

Sceen Shot

Hey don’t look now, but this is my 3rd blog post in 3 days. No, I didn’t crawl out from under a rock. No, I wasn’t in a coma. What was stopping me from blogging, you ask? Well, it was my blog. At the beginning of August we had a group of friends over, including […]

The 5 Phases of Twitter

twit-phases

The other night at our weekly Beer and Blog meetup, we had a pretty interesting discussion about Twitter. It all started because one of our friend who is a promoter recently had his Twitter account suspended. As far as I could tell, he wasn’t doing anything wrong. His tweet-stream had a mix of conversation, random […]

Know who to ask

one-in-a-crowd

“It’s not what you know, it’s who you know.” I’ve heard that saying hundreds of times. This past week drove that message home for me several times over. I was recently contacted by somebody looking to help a third party move their website from it’s current platform (a custom build solution with no admin backend) […]

On April 25th I spent the day at WordCamp Reno-Tahoe where I gave a presentation on using WordPress as a CMS for affiliate marketing.

A few times over the past couple years, some friends and I took part in a few 30 day blog challenges. The challenge was to write a blog post every day for 30 days. The goal was to train ourselves to getting in the habit of writing on a regular basis. The result was less […]

It's Thursday, go leave a comment on a blog!

comment_thursday

One of the greatest things you can do for a blogger is leave comments on their posts. Many bloggers pour their heart and soul in to their blog posts and unless somebody speaks up and leaves a comment, it can be very discouraging. For that reason I am trying to start a new movement called […]

I’m done with auto-follow on Twitter

Last DM

About 2 months ago I was introduced to a site called SocialToo.com. I created an account and added my Twitter credentials. I turned on the feature that would automatically follow anybody on twitter who started following me. Yesterday, I canceled my account with SocialToo.com. One feature they offered that I never used was the automatic […]

The most expensive RSS feed I read

tuaw_header

I’m currently following about 60 RSS feeds. Some belong to friends’ blogs, some are news, some are just for entertainment and then there’s a large group that have to do with electronics. In the electronics category, several of them end up talking about newly available gadgets. Seriously, it’s like they know my weak spot. ThinkGeek […]

It’s no secret that Twitter is wildly popular these days. People all over the world are using Twitter to stay in touch with dozens/hundreds/thousands of people at a time. But the social aspect of Twitter is only one aspect of it’s power. Using Twitter for automation has the potential to be just as powerful and […]
