    [Comments] Influenster: Green VoxBox Review
    Respond to Mentions: Mentions are Twitter’s equivalent of comments.  Give me a shout in the comments below to let me know how you plan to use these to get your tweets noticed. Twitter is a game changer for new blogs.  By far, it is the easiest and cheapest way to get readers to your blog. However, effectively using twitter to get noticed is more art than science.  When I started, I made some embarrassing goofs. Such as: retweeting my own posts, posting my blog links 10-15 times a day, not retweeting other people’s stuff, and other knucklehead moves. Here’s mine.

    Questions or comments? I have a confession to make, and it may surprise you. Despite the fact that I am a self-proclaimed social/mobile/online/digital/tech enthusiast, I still like getting print magazines sent to me in the mail. There, I said it. I’m sure you’ve heard it before, but I have to say that there’s still something nostalgic about getting a new issue of my favorite magazine sent to me in the mail, and having the ability to actually flip through its crisp pages as I scan from page to page.
