Sometimes you only learn by doing – such as “when I post an update to my blog, how does it look on Facebook?”. Hence this post 🙂

It was WordPress SEO Again

Again WordPress SEO stopped my posts from being publicized to Facebook. Deactivated it and posts went through. Activated it but turned off Open Graph (In Social Settings) and it went through. Now I’ve re-enabled Open Graph and we’ll see if this goes through! (And it didn’t, so I disabled Open Graph. We’ll see how long… Continue reading It was WordPress SEO Again

Publishing to Facebook?!?

For reasons I’ll never understand, the WordPress Jetpack social plugin that’s supposed to be able to publish my stuff everywhere (i.e. FB, Twitter, LinkedIn, Tumblr, Google+) sometimes doesn’t want to publish it to the network I get 70% of my traffic from: Facebook. Not sure what that is, but I’m back to the old grind of… Continue reading Publishing to Facebook?!?

I hadn’t found a really good way to archive my ping.fm statuses, but did have a pretty awesome way to share posts from Google Reader simply… Continue reading Post to Google+, Automate Your Shared Items, And Other Super Syndication Techniques

AT&T was second at $240 million, BoA third… Continue reading Money for Thought

Add Facebook Friend’s Birthdays to your Calendar Automatically

Lifehacker recently published an article detailing a few ways to help remember the things you actually care about, as opposed to those you don’t but remember anyway (such as the MVP of the 1996 All-star game). One of the little gems that was tucked in the article was the application fbCal which integrates your Facebook… Continue reading Add Facebook Friend’s Birthdays to your Calendar Automatically
