I wonder if it's the way the CEO behaves in real life...

This post made me laugh and saddened me at the same time. We have reached a point where we don't pay attention to the words we use. The exclamation point is just one instance of the issue.

The other day, I had a a conversation with someone who didn't understand why being a grammar snob is important in business. Your words are, most of the time, the only thing customers will see online before they decide to buy from you or hire you.

Your word is your bond. So learn to show more with less words. 

Put the exclamation point away. Customers don’t want to be told, “This is amazing!” — they want to be shown amazing and come to that conclusion themselves. - Patrick Armitage

There's no getting around it: Marketing messages are glutted with exclamation points. Columnist Patrick Armitage says it's time for marketers to stop the deluge and instead raise the creative bar.

The question of content curation as an ethical practice still appears very frequently in blog posts. It's great that +Guillaume Decugis   addresses it the way he does in this post.

While +Scoop.it certainly offers features that make your work easier and faster, it's important to take the time to add insights and comments to bring context into the equation. 

Great content curation helps everyone! 

#contentcuration  
Ever since we started to work on Scoop.it, we’ve had this question: is it fair to use other people’s content for your own good: in other words, how ethical is content curation? Is it even legal?…

This video is magnificent!
Filmmaker Martin Heck spent four months traveling across New Zealand, sleeping under the stars, hiking mountains, and exploring the country's one-of-a-kind landscape. This is the second entry in a multi-part series, culled from his time-lapse footage of the South Island.

I definitely agree with +Suzan St Maur here: Blogging makes you a better listener. 

In my ten years as a blogger, I have learnt more about audience than any webinar!

I love the title of this post. The word "correctly" in brackets draws attention to the promise. 

Repurposing content is a great practice that too few small business owners use to their advantage. And I am guilty of it too, as I only have time to refresh my stale posts. 

With that said, +Julia McCoy's article gave me some great food for thought, especially with point #5: "DO start creating evergreen content that can be repurposes." I agree that it makes your repurposing work more effective and long-lasting. 

Kevan Lee from Buffer suggests that a great way to know if you’re creating evergreen content is to ask, “Will this help clients a year from now?” If the answer is yes, it’s evergreen!

An excellent read!

Commenting on other blogs is a great way to get noticed. But you have to do it right. 

NB: This is an old article that I updated. 

#blogging   #bloggingtips   #bloggingforbusiness  
Commenting on other blogs in your niche is a great tactic to increase the visibility of your own blog. For example, you get to connect and build relationships with other writers, tap into a new audience, and create opportunities for guest posting.

My favorite daguerreotype so far! It looks like a WWI photo!

I love this daguerreotype. It almost look like a WWI photo / postcard! I didn't use any model for this one. Just my imagination.

Helping Small Business in Building a Better Presence

I am originally from France and finding French food that tastes as such in Winnipeg can be challenging. Chez Sophie is the best French restaurant in the city. The owners have done a fantastic job promoting themselves and adapting to the local audience. Update: The pizza recipe has changed. The service as well. I'm not as impressed as I used to be!

The first couple of times I visited, the service and food were less than impressive. I am glad I decided to give this restaurant another chance, as things have improved greatly.
