Blog World Expo 09 wrapup

Blog World Expo 2009 is in the books. The parties have all ended and most people in attendance are either home already or heading in that direction. I’m one of the lucky ones who lives right here in Las Vegas, so my trip home is quite a bit shorter (20 minutes) than most. I do […]

WordCamp LA recap

This past weekend I hit the road and traveled to Los Angeles to attend and be a presenter at the first ever WordCamp LA. It was held on the campus of Loyola Marymount University which was a great place to visit, and the room we were using was well equipped to handle the nearly 200 […]

Has #FollowFriday on Twitter jumped the shark?

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 […]

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.

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!
