Personal Content Marketing Strategy

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2016

My ongoing job search lately has lead me to do a lot of Googling and a lot of lying in bed unable to sleep, which sometimes leads to me getting up and sitting in front of my computer more. There are a lot of self proclaimed experts online, some of them actually know what they are talking about, some of them just talk a lot. Separating the wheat from the chaff is still a billion dollar problem online, as someone who continues to spend too much time online, here is how I manage my personal social media firehose…

Klout and Personal Branding Online

Monday, November 14th, 2016

During my never ending job search I sometimes get questions or comments about something on my website, sometimes the comments are positive, sometimes less so. In fact I think people who don’t value honesty and integrity probably never interview me at all. That said a lot of effort has gone into this website over the last ten or fifteen years.

Over the holidays I received a lot of beer, including two different sets of Belgian beer with matching glassware. Long before it became a thing, I photographed some of the beers I drank so I could better remember which rare beers I’ve tried. Now the craft beer scene has Untappd, but before that there was Flickr…

Tracking social media button clicks in Google Analytics

Wednesday, October 2nd, 2013

The best way to track social media button clicks is to use a plugin in your CMS, I use Professional Share on this blog. It has most every feature I want except support for Twitter Cards. I’m hoping the author will add Twitter Card Support as he already supports Facebook Open Graph meta data. Sometimes you don’t have the luxury of a plugin or content management system, I took one of my oldest webpages, a webpage I’ve been maintaing for over a dozen years and I added structured meta data and social media buttons which track in Google Analytics…

Although I’m far from finished improving my WordPress blog/theme, I’ve also made a number of changes to this website and elsewhere online that supposedly will help my personal brand…
