I'm an independent consultant in many fields, so I have a lot to share.

Are You Missing The “Social” Part Of Social Media?

Okay, I get it. Twitter and Facebook can be used for business purposes. LinkedIn is supposed to be for business purposes. I know because I use them for business as well.

Social Me In 2021

Not that often, but obviously I do. Every blog post I write shows up on Twitter multiple times. Here and there I share something from one of my blogs in my Facebook blogging group. On LinkedIn I not only share blog posts but some of my business videos; lately they seem to be doing a lot better than before.

You Need One Of These Two Things To “Really” Have A Successful Blog

When I decided to write on what it takes to have a really successful blog, I heard my friend Holly’s voice in my head and went to Alexa to see where this blog’s ranked. It’s always been controversial because, unless you’ve loaded their tracker tool, you’re never going to accurately know where you stand.

Does this guy look successful?

My thought about it has always been that you don’t need total accuracy as much as a random idea of how well your site is doing when compared to the rest of the world. We used to get that via blogging toolbars that gave us a lot of information at once, but unfortunately those days are gone; sniff!

Why I Stopped Using The All In One SEO Plugin

If you’re like me and running a WordPress blog, sometimes as soon as you see an update to a plugin you probably go ahead and update it, not thinking much about it. That’s certainly been the case for me.

The Word For 2021 Is… Planning

Just like I’ve done for the past 3 years, I’m taking a 2-week sabbatical on this blog after I write this article. I’ll still be putting together something for my business blog and my accountant’s blog, and I’ll pre-record videos for my two YouTube channels. Once all of that’s done, it’s time for a bit of relaxation; I need it!

planner for 2021

this year’s planner

It’s been a heck of a year. Some things y’all know about because indirectly you shared them with me: Covid, Black Lives Matter, the presidential election. Some were more personal: divorce, Mom, house issues. I’m lucky to be able to say I’ve survived it all, but I definitely need a mental break.

Download Your Facebook Information And Be Illuminated!

I’ve been reading about changes Facebook wants to make to Instagram via smartphones. Instead of leaving it alone, they want to merge it with both Messenger and WhatsApp, two apps I’ve never wanted on my phone. I also eliminated Facebook from my phone as soon as I bought it. I’m stuck with Google tracking me (since I’m on Android), but that’s as far as I’m allowing it.

Facebook images

face and book

Luckily, some time ago I downloaded all my images from Instagram. I actually did that shortly after my computer crashed back in 2018, but I didn’t do the same from Facebook. I’ve been on the site just over 12 years, and I’ve uploaded lots of pictures there that didn’t originate from Instagram. Many include family members that most of them had never seen. I lost a lot of those images, like from Instagram, in the big crash of 2018. This set me on a journey towards discovery… and the last thing I discovered was stunning! Stick around…
