A helpful post if you're serious about your blog for business, I'm attending the Hangout too. Today. 3 PM
 
Must Do Tips for the Serious Blogger by  +Jay Baer 
I have a HOA with Jay and +Guy Kawasaki today at 3 pm ET. RSVP here: https://plus.google.com/u/0/events/c2lq8jaqp3285jhi44hv38bvlps

"If your blog shares your deepest, darkest secrets about your passion for Jersey Shore or troll head dolls, this is not the article for you. This is the post for serious bloggers who want their online musings to play a meaningful role in their business."

Great tips to take your blog to the next level:

1. Be patient
2. Be specific
3. Be consistent
4. Embrace variety
5. Use imagery

"If you can’t inject some of your personality into the content you create for your blog, don’t bother."

This is one of my all-time favorite posts about blogging and really helped me get serious about my blog. 

Pin it for later: http://pinterest.com/pin/232779874462632935/

This was just interesting and entertaining. Science, Isaac Newton - for fun.
Our division of the rainbow comes from Newton—but it's more subjective than scientific.

Check out  the brilliant, fun (covert) marketing event created by The Rijksmuseum in Holland. Wanting to encourage interest in art and the museum, they brought a Rembrandt painting to life in a busy mall. #marketing

A handy tool I'm going to use.

Clip Better creates a rich snippet that includes an image, title, summary, link and more.  Improve sharing with friends by giving them a rich preview of the content you're sharing before they click a link.
 
Never email a naked URL again

Here's a helpful Chrome extension (also available as a bookmarklet if you don't use Chrome) that allows you to effortlessly create a visual snippet of any page and send it through Gmail or any other mail client that supports HTML Mail.

Find it here: http://info.clipbetter.com/
