How to use Google+ to Boost your overall social media platform  thanks to +Peg Fitzpatrick !

How to Use Google Plus to Boost your Overall Social Platform

The biggest benefit of Google Plus is that it’s part of Google and therefore everything that you do helps with your Google search rankings. While the overcomplicated and underused Google Authorship program may not be in play any longer, ranking higher in Google search certainly hasn’t gone out of style.

From +Rand Fishkin, “Better content will outperform more content.” Google uses social signals to decide what is “better content” by the conversations built around your content, number of people that share it, and how you engage with others about your content.

A strong Google+ presence can help more people find your content as your Google+ posts can rank in Google searches.

Read the whole article here: http://maximizesocialbusiness.com/use-google-plus-boost-overall-social-platform-17877/

If you like this article, please share outside Google+ as well. Inviting more people to join us here on Google+ creates a more vibrant and interesting community.

Food for thought this morning from +Eric Enge 
 
Impact of the Google-Twitter Deal

I wrote up my thoughts on the Google-Twitter deal, and it published this morning over on Hubspot. My theory hangs on the belief that Google will be able to determine who is Retweeting whom, in which case Google will be able to which tweets are getting the most response on Twitter, and which people have have most influence there.

If so, a strategy to grow and drive your Twitter influence would be a very powerful one indeed!

Three Bean Bourbon Chicken Chili
Ingredients
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 large sweet onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
3-4 tablespoons brown sugar
2 ounces bourbon
2 pounds ground chicken or turkey (or a combination of both)
15 ounce can kidney beans drained and rinsed
15 ounce can chili pinto beans (no chili pinto beans can be used instead)
15 ounce can cannellini beans drained and rinsed
24 ounces of Passata tomatoes or heavy crushed tomato
8 ounces chicken stock
2 tablespoons corn masa (or fine cornmeal)
3 tablespoons chili powder
1 tablespoon ground cumin
2 teaspoons dried oregano
2 teaspoon sea salt (or to taste)
cayenne can be added for extra heat (use with caution)

Instructions
in a large skillet or pot add the chopped onions, garlic and olive oil. Saute for a few minutes until the onions are lightly cooked.
Add brown sugar, mixing well and continue sauteing for 2 minutes. Carefully add bourbon making sure it doesn't go near open flames.
Allow alcohol to burn off bourbon for a minute as mixture continues to cook
Add ground meat and begin the browning process. You may need to add additional olive oil.
Brown all the meat continuously stirring to break up the meat. ( you may find a heavy wire whisk helpful in breaking up the chunks)
When the meat is browned begin adding in your seasonings ( remember you can always add more after its cooked for awhile)
Add tomatoes, chicken stock and beans combining all of the ingredients.
reduce heat to simmer and allow to simmer for 1 - 2 hours, stirring so it won't stick to the bottom
If chili begins to get too thick you can add additional stock or water to get it to the consistency you like.
Taste and re-season to your taste.
Be careful in adding Cayenne if you decide to kick it up a notch as a little goes a long way

I'm sure it's delicious, but it isn't Traditional Irish soda bread that contains only flour, salt, baking soda, and buttermilk.  If you add raisins (or cherries, I suppose) it becomes "Spotted Dog".  For info on the history of traditional Irish soda bread go to http://www.sodabread.info/

Chef / Food Blogger / YouTube Host & Producer
Introduction
My name is Dennis Littley or "Chef Dennis" as I'm known both at work and across the Internet.   I am an Executive Chef, Culinary Instructor, HOA Host and Producer of four shows on Google Plus that you can find on playlists of my YouTube Channel

  • Good Day Google+:   Talk and Variety Show featuring the best and brightest on Google+
  • Around the Kitchen Table:   with co-host Kitchen Designer Susan Serra featuring easy to make Restaurant Style Dishes and Kitchen Design tips 
  • The Food & Booze Show:   with co-host Mia Voss as we showcase restaurants around the Denver and Orlando areas, as well as specials from around the world.
  • On the Road with Chef Dennis:  Sharing my experiences as I travel around Florida and other areas.  Interviewing business owners, guests, offering a personal connection with these people and places.

You can also find my First Annual Virtual Blogging Conference on G+ in July of 2013 (11 Sessions) and The Second Annual Virtual Bloggers Conference in June of 2014 (12 sessions)

My 40+ years of experience in the Food Service Industry have taken me on an incredible journey, beginning my career in Fast Food then working my way through Nursing Homes, Fine Dining Restaurants, Executive Dining and finally Private Schools.  

Since my retirement from professional kitchens, I've made my home on Google+ and can honestly say there's no place I'd rather be.

After an unpleasant experience with another area Electrician, I called Terry's. They were courteous and responsive and fixed the issues with my GFI outlet in about 15 minutes and charged a reasonable amount. I will use them for any electrical need that I have.

My appointment was changed twice in one day then cancelled for the next morning. That was changed after I was told someone would be here within an hour. When the technician finally did come in the afternoon almost an hour after the time they gave me he wanted to charge me the $69 fee for the visit and the cost of replacing one GFI outlet of $193. plus tax of course which would have made it almost $300 for one GFI outlet. That seems a bit excessive to me based on all my dealings with Electricians in New Jersey. The other note is that their office is about 1 mile from my home. UPDATE: ACE called this morning to let me know they would wave the dispatch fee. I guess complaining is a good thing. UPDATE: The outlet was easily replace and upon inspection it was verified that it was the only problem. Cost $90

I was thrilled to be invited back into the Chocolate Kitchen to watch as they made some of their amazing chocolate creations. Its plain to see their employees love chocolate and love what they do. This of course translates into their products. I got to try some of their chocolate creations, including chocolate covered bacon, chocolate popcorn, chocolate strawberries, chocolate pretzels, chocolate graham crackers, chocolate oreo's and chocolate covered potato chips and Jami you were right the milk chocolate chips were my favorite! I am looking forward to going back soon to try out some of the Gelato they have at the store. If you love chocolate you want to make sure to put this on your to do list, plus you get to enjoy beautiful downtown Winter Park while your're there!

I was fortunate to find Barnie's coffee after moving from the Philadelphia area, and its been the only coffee I drink since we moved. I use their espresso beans, as well as their house blend decaf, but my favorites are their MIcro Roasts. Whenever I'm in Winter Park I make it a point to stop in and see what new coffees they have available. And I do use their very easy online ordering.
