To all the mothers that graciously subscribe and support me, I wish you the finest (if slightly belated) Happy Mother’s Day wishes.
Finished all but one of the aweber videos that need shot (apparently the individual lists on my account aren’t big enough to access a couple tools, (even though the combined total is more than enough, LOL) if you’ve got a larger list i can peek at to shoot a video on broadcast split testing I’d be grateful). First draft edits are done, transcriptions are being made, second draft edits start soon, gotta get graphics yet… the Aweber training should be available soon!
What would you like to see next?
Thank you to everyone that’s been taking time to fill out the survey I shared recently. I really appreciate it!
Facebook has been one very sick puppy this week…
There has been a lot of yelling, sulking, pleading and despair over the recent huge surge in Facebook infected spams, scams, click-jacking & infected links.
It’s important to understand that that crap showing up on your wall posted by someone else is likely infected and was not ACTUALLY posted by them… but that they likely DID click an infected link that got posted on their wall.
People are responding to fear, ego, information seeking, guilt over inaction if they dont help their friend, and other such emotional pressures when clicking on things they just plain SHOULD NOT.
It important that you ALWAYS THINK before clicking anything on FB – even links from me!
Later today I’ll be publishing “6 Signs That Facebook Post is Infected!” so be sure to look out for that!
I also just UPDATED the Facebook Spams & Scams post with about five more and some more pictures as well as some information on the “concept” behind how these spread.
If you could help me by sharing these posts – so we can get the word out and help others protect themselves – I would be very grateful.
Equal Opportunity Theme Employment?
Its important to understand that themes often add more than visual elements to a WP site.
Many premium themes bring a ton of work-horse functionality to a site, and with less settings headache and speed penalties than plugins.
One of the places this gets the most press is for SEO optimized themes like Thesis which “bake in” many of the best SEO plugins for optimum performance.
When you go shopping for a new theme – there’s a lot more than meets the eye!
One of my favorite plugins to keep readers coming and and to be sure they are aware when you answer their comment, because of course you’re answering comments right?. …. read more

Less “Formal” Name Tagging!
One of two feature improvements released this week…
Facebook has finally not only removed the need to type the @ symbol to create a status or comment tag of a person…
..but has enabled the ability, once the tag is linked, to backspace off the last name of the individual without breaking the tag/link!
This is hot because it lets us use tags in a more conversational, less artificially stiff tone. A very nice subtle improvement!
I invite you to connect with me throughout social media! Lets get to know each other!
