Pinterest

Have you found Pinterest yet?  This is a great place to store and share images that you find on the internet.  As you follow others, you see what they think is interesting and can share those ideas with others.

The other great thing is you can put your images on boards, just as if you were cutting them out of a magazine and putting them up on a cork board or into a scrap book.

Trying to gather ideas to cook a special meal?  Plan an event, like a wedding?  Want some crafting ideas?  Places to go on vacation?  Just start looking and “pin” your pics to the appropriate board that you create.

Follow Time2Mrkt and ask for an invite if you need one.

Have you used it yet?  Where do you see it going?

 

SpongeBob has nothing on me!

SpongeBob Squarepants has nothing on this gal.  He may have the ultimate ability tohttp://spongebob.nick.com/characters/spongebob_character.html absorb things, but the brain absorbs so much when you find something that intrigues you.

I have been working on this WordPress site for a few months now and the more I learn the more I want to learn.  Wordpress can do so much and I am just touching the tip of the iceberg.  Wordpress is more than a blog platform.  There are many static sites that are based on a WordPress platform but include e-commerce and so much more.

When I first starting learning about FrontPage and then DreamWeaver, it was like brain candy – always something new to learn, tips, tricks, and ways to accomplish something new and exciting.  Now with social media becoming adopted by more and more businesses, learning about the multitude of platforms and how to best use them to market a business is again like brain candy.

What is your “brain candy”?

Favorite New Tools

It seems like the more you learn, the more you don’t know.  There are so many new tools and features available on a daily, if not hourly basis, that no one person can keep up with it all.

Since the first of the year I have found out, or set up accounts in several new platforms.

Pinterest – a photo sharing social network.  Right now you need to be invited or be put on the wait list.  So many articles are out now to show you how to customize this for your business.

 

PitchEngine – a press release site for you to share your news and have your events or products found.

 

 

Google + – this platform is now up to 90 million plus users and growing exponentially. You can now have business pages and add admins to your pages.

 

Jing – a cool little tool that lets you grab screen shots very easily.  I love this tool and use it to grab screen shots to post to Facebook or Google+ to show people how to do things.

 

What new tool have you found for 2012?

What have you learned?

I have learned many things in my life. A few I would like to share and let you make your own conclusions from there:

  • There is beauty in everything and everyone – all you have to do is look.
  • Don’t expect – if you have no expectations you have no disappointments.
  • Learn something new every day. It keeps your mind active.
Wishing everyone beauty, no disappointments and knowledge for the New Year.
