I spent some time this morning redesigning my blog. I used a WordPress theme called Standard theme (now owned by WooThemes). I really wanted my logo and social media icons to be the same color and and similar in size. I like how you can see a description under my personal photo. My latest headshot was provided by Reagan Thomson Photography.

Last Thursday I was at a conference in Denver and a friend mentioned that it was the first time he had seen me not wearing a hat. Yes, it is true, I have put the hats aside for now.

I’m going to let you in on some secrets:

-I’m a fan of “Glove and Boots.”

-The rise of social media and texting has made for some poor grammar. If you don’t know what grammar is.

In December my friends from Frequency.FM asked me if they could do a podcast interview with me about social media marketing. I wanted to share this with you here as well.

This presentation was from a talk I gave last week to our sales representatives. The purpose was to introduce them to some of our strategy for social media and show them that we didn’t need internet memes to go viral. We already had something viral happening!
