Something which surprises me is how many bloggers don’t include a subscribe by email form on their blogs.

    [Comments] The Persistent Social Media Measurement Problem: A Mini-Manifesto
    The problem with most social media measurement is very simple to state. Either: We’re not measuring at all, or. We’re trying to overcomplicate this stuff like crazy. The goal of measurement is not the measurement process. It’s not the report or the spreadsheet or the infographic in your slick presentation. The goal of measurement is to learn something that tells you whether or not what you’re headed in the right direction, and to help you make better business decisions moving forward. Should we keep doing this, stop doing this, or do something different altogether? Guess what? Hell no.

    [Comments] Setec Astronomy
    It's hard to even find places online where they have commented on other people's Blogs. The chance of anybody who has not seen the 1992 movie, Sneakers , and caught the obscure reference to continue reading this Blog post beyond the title will be minimal. and I'm fine with that. "Setec Astronomy" is actually an anagram in the thriller for "too many secrets." " We now live in a world with very few secrets. The truth is that people making claims about their competencies and skills and not being able to back them up with a digital footprint comes off as hollow.

    [Comments] How I Met a Celebrity by Using Craigslist
    Subscribe to the comments for this post? Over this past weekend, my wife and I had the pleasure of a brief third visit from a real, honest-to-goodness, “household name&# celebrity. This time, it was this celebrity’s husband visiting our home. And to think, it all started with a simple Craiglist ad , one that I placed on the Dallas Craigslist about two months ago. First off, I’m not going to go into great detail about the celebrity (or her husband), not only to protect them, but because who they are really isn’t my point here. And I was lazy this time. Digg this!

    [Comments] What I learned from George Clooney!
    George Clooney in an interview on The Andrew Marr Show this weekend commented on how film can never lead public opinion as it takes too long for an idea to go from concept to production. Therefore it can only reflect public opinion. In the past media it has been left to the papers to both reflect and lead public opinion. It strikes me that social media is changing the way society forms opinion. . In the past the opinion lead the public.now the public leads opinion. However, when you recognise the role of social media. Does your social media content 'reflect' that approach?

    [Comments] How to Get Read: 8 Ways to Take your Blog From Existence to Greatness
    look forward to your input in the comment section. This is a guest contribution from Jerry Low. Here’s one thing I bet you don’t know about Isaac Newton – do you know Newton has the most valuable tooth in human history? One of his teeth was sold in 1816 at auction for approximately $3,600. In today’s terms, that is about $35,000 – which cost more than a Ford Fusion Titanium car in the United States. But how is this related to writing a great blogpost? Well, we will talk about it later (if you can’t wait, skip to point #2). But what exactly makes a great blog post? Open with a bang.
