Five years ago the more followers and fans you had on social media, the better. It was a numbers game. Numbers meant that you were someone influential. How things have changed. Social influence is no longer measured in quantity. Today this important metric is all about quality, particularly the quality of your engagement.

One tip might be not to use a lower-case letter in the middle of a fully upper-case headline.  If you do that, your headline ends up looking like some kind of health term "biogging".

What do women really want for Valentine's Day? The answers might surprise you! 

#valentinesday2015  
One upon a very long time ago, when I was young and a complete and total moron, I received a Dirt Devil hand vac as a Valentine’s Day gift. Being a good little wife, I was pleased as punch. No Cheerio would ever again escape my evil suction. I was happy. Gleeful. Until I realized that all of my friends had dozens of gorgeous roses sitting on their desks and countertops. Pristine jewelry glistened from their bodies like JLo’s butt. Some were … →

I'm a time-starved mother suffering from what I believe to be MUDD or Motherhood Unintentional Distraction Disorder. My mind is everywhere! But that's okay. There's never a dull moment around these parts! Welcome to my world!

This week's Fifty Shades of Grey Inspired Recipe is Crock Pot Carrot Walnut Cake. The inspiration comes from the walnut chiffon cake served for dessert at the Masquerade Ball in Fifty Shades Darker. YUM! 

#crockpotrecipes   #fiftyshades  
I’m jumping the gun here, but I’m really starting to dig the Fifty Shades trilogy! So this week the inspiration comes from Fifty Shades Darker. Immediately, I knew I had to post a recipe that was inspired by the walnut chiffon cake served for dessert at the Masquerade Ball (page 99). This Crock Pot Carrot Walnut Cake may not be as high-end as the chiffon, but let me tell you, it’s out of this world. And so easy to make! If … →

Continuing our Fifty Shades of Grey Inspired Recipes series!

#fiftyshadesofgrey  
Who has a sweet tooth? Mister Christian Grey of Fifty Shades of Grey, that’s who! And vanilla ice cream appears to be at the top of his list (and all over Ana – but we won’t talk about that in this post). Although I love me some vanilla ice cream (preferably in a bowl – but we won’t talk about that in this post), there’s something that I love even more: vanilla bean frozen custard! If you’re not familiar with … →

Blue Lobster Book Co. was founded by marketing industry veteran Crystal Ponti, who has worked for and consulted with some of the largest sites in the world including Answers.com and Google. Prior to working at Answers, she spent a number of years as a business and marketing planning consultant helping entrepreneurs plan, launch, and grow their businesses. Since then, she has focused on book marketing. Most recently she served as Managing Editor, Contributing Author, and publisher of the book The Mother of All Meltdowns, a tell-all collection of moms’ finest (worst, completely awful) moments. She also blogs at MommiFried, an outlet for her creative writing and a way for her to share her later-in-motherhood experiences with all women and parents, and is a regular contributor to Felicity Huffman’s site What The Flicka? and Business 2 Community.

When she is not busy consulting, blogging, or writing, she can be found nurturing a beautiful family of five children, one much-younger husband, and a cat that drives them all up the wall.
