Life Is What Happens When You’re Busy Making Other Plans
I wrote a journal entry today, or I suppose now it was yesterday and I’ve been musing on it. I just finished reading “Love in the Time of Cholera”, a recommendation from a good friend, and while it wouldn’t normally be my go-to, I found it thought-provoking. It wasn’t a love-story but it was a very real representation of what life may look like if we don’t stop to evaluate, appreciate or introspect. The truly beautiful bit is that we get to live into that quiet desperation, feel the feelings of regret and be steamrolled by the inexorable passing of time, and then we get to set the book down…

Don’t do THIS with your Social Media Videos
I see this mistake made with business's social media video posts. And their photo and text posts too. Don't do this!
Guest Appearance on “So That’s My Business”
Because it's by us sharing what's authentically us, and us consuming some organization's authentic content that we can start to attract each other and find our tribe.
Video Marketing MAGIC
So. I’m trying to sit down and have a normal, productive day of work. And it’s really failing because I can’t get Brandon Sanderson’s latest announcement out of my head. When I watched it, sent to me this morning, it was a #1 on trending. At this point, it’s been out for about exactly a day, and it has 855,671 views. If you’re a Sanderson fan and haven’t watched the video yet, do so and come back. Or don’t come back but do watch the video. I’m going to start spoiling it. If you’re not one of his fans, then the content of this video won’t be expressly relevant, but…
How-To: Tag Your Personal Friends on Your Business Facebook Page
Recently I uploaded a bunch of photos of some great people to my business facebook page. I wanted to tag the people in the photos and… found out I couldn’t. As my business page my friends did not show up. As my personal page, I couldn’t even tag. Thankfully a quick jaunt into “Settings” solved this one. For those of you (like me, ironically) who prefer blog how-tos, read on. As a starting point, this may let you know if you’re facing the same problem and if this solution is for you Tried Tagging with Personal Page Originally I tried tagging with my personal page but there wasn’t even the…
Can I See What Ads People are Running on Facebook? Yes, yes you can.
It feels like I’m spying every time I check out whether or not a company is running ads on Facebook. What are your thoughts? Somehow you found your way onto this blog, before you knew it was possible, did it feel like cheating to you? Because really, we can look at what our “competitor” is doing and copy her.(I put “competitor” in quotes because according to Wallace Wattles, we must move from the competitive to the creative, and I’d agree!) Swipe and Deploy IS a big strategy in the Marketing sphere. You see what is working for someone who has some similarity to you, and then you do your version…
Consistency > Perfection with Video
I think it’s a common desire, the elusive “Being Discovered”. The thought goes, “If I put forth this ONE. PERFECT. THING. someone will see it and notice me. I will be whisked away into stardom and fame befitting my awesomeness.” I’m not here to crush all your dreams. There is always that CHANCE. And, there is always a chance that you will score a winning lottery ticket. Or get found as a face fit for a magazine. Maybe you’ll go viral and get featured on “Ellen”. Or something! I’m not saying being discovered is bad or wrong or undesirable. Heck, many big names are big BECAUSE they were “discovered” and…
You can add extra urls to your Instagram Account with this one tool
It’s so annoying to try to link to something in an Instagram post (a blog referenced, a vlog, a product…) and suddenly remember that the url won’t be live and someone will need to type that web address into their browser to see it because it’s not a hyperlink. My guess is that Instagram wants to keep you scrolling and not have you wandering down the rabbit hole, clicking on links in all the posts. Perhaps it’s for a more streamlined content consuming experience. Either way, it’s a bit annoying, and further annoying that if you had wanted to feature a particular link, you would have to erase the one…
How-to Create a Facebook Business Page 2019
A while back I posted the tutorial about linking your Instagram to your Facebook – I had needed an un-linked set of accounts so I could show that. In order to do that, I needed to create a facebook business page for my Princess Katie’s Ponies (feel free to laugh. 😉 ) and I figured, why not film the process and make it an additional tutorial? This process is so simple. I created a video which you can watch down below, or keep scrolling for picture-by-picture steps. Step 1: Click “Pages” on the left side of your Facebook News Feed There are a lot of ways to get to creating…
