The Perfect Post Checklist

No one knows exactly how to create perfect posts, but you’ll get a lot closer if you constantly experiment. Change variables such as timing, length, graphics, and subject matter.

One point: Be bold.
If you want to succeed on social media, you need to break through the noise. One way to do this is to be bold about the topics that you cover—so take a stand on the issues that are important to you!

If people don’t like what you post, they can unfollow you. Brands can’t get away with what people can, but companies like Salesforce.com and Apple are bold about issues such as gay rights.

Be bold. Take chances. Experiment with your social media.

Love the idea of HanaHouse. It's a short-term, cafe space environment on University Avenue in downtown Palo Alto. You can rent a desk, seat, or meeting room for short periods.

I just crave carbohydrates. It takes every ounce of willpower I have not to eat them.

I've figured out that I'm a supply-side eater. That is, if something isn't there, I won't go to much trouble to get it. Therefore, the key is to no have carbs in my house.

Which is difficult when you have four kids around for the summer! Maybe these tips can help you.

These 6 tips can help you lower your carb intake so you can eat healthier and lose weight faster.

+Guy Kawasaki It is so true. I am terrible at not eating what I know is there regardless of how bad I know it is for me. Take it away and I do not miss it - Chocolate and carbs are the two big ones for me

That's one way of making the most of your commute.

+Ross Bagley,
1) you need to read up on your SC historical documents. Slavery was not mentioned in ANY DOCUMENTS that SC filed when seceding. Interstate commerce was mentioned, but slavery was not mentioned. Besides only 4% of the people in SC actually owned slaves.

2) the confederate flag was an homage to the confederate forces that died in a war based on states rights and the impact on free trade. it could be a "fuck you" to northern states intent on defying free trade and states rights just as easily.

3) you are reflecting your hatred of whites apparently, because I never said (nor would I ever state that whites are better than blacks. In truth, Blacks in Africa sold their own people into slavery... so blacks are really to blame for slavery, after all.

Again, I never said that ANY ONE RACE is better than any other. If I were to choose a best race, I would probably choose the Native American, which is a merging of Mongoloids and Europeans.

Don't toss the paper map just yet!
I just moved to a new city, and I live and die by my phone’s GPS. But as a result, I’ve realized that I still don’t know anything about how the city is laid out, nor can I make a simple drive to my friend’s house—where I’ve been many times—without my GPS navigating me. If your sense of direction is similarly lacking and you want a more intuitive understanding of your city, here are a few things you can do to rid yourself off that GPS dependency a...

Kinda misleading title. None of Apple, Google or Starbucks are discussed in detailed. Or am I missing something here?

I wrote much of Enchantment, What the Plus!, and APE at La Tartine. I love that there's lots of parking across the street, there's good Wifi, and there are no VCs eating there. The staff is very nice, and the food is very good. It's as close to the Seine as you can get in Redwood City. :-) It would be nice if there were electric plugs on the east side of the restaurant.
