This is a seriously brilliant way to use Trello for managing multiple clients' blog content!

I'm a big fan of Trello, but never really figured out on my own how to effectively manage blog content for multiple clients via a single Trello board.

Amen for +Abbie Reedy and Heroic Search--They've created a multi-client content calendar template that absolutely rocks!

I will definitely be using this approach. Thanks Abbie!

Managing content for multiple clients is no simple task. A coherent editorial calendar can help content teams keep all their plates spinning.

Say it isn't so! :-(

Rest in peace, Alan Rickman (a.k.a. Professor Snape). You and your talent will be missed.

"Personal brand chatter focuses too much on superficial things and too much on self-importance. If you want to build a sustainable personal brand, focus on your personal character early and often."

Some worthwhile food for thought in this post about the importance of character and how we develop it.

Fascinating!
 
How Google's Project Tango will change your life

(Read my column: http://goo.gl/CBirho )

Project Tango is a Google platform for giving phones and tablets a sense of space.

Right now, your phone can't do this. By this time next year, it probably will.

I love moments like these -- a fundamental technology is poised to change what people do every day and how they do it, yet the general public remains ignorant of what's coming.

That ignorance is about to be shattered. CES will usher in a new awareness about Project Tango. I'll detail below what's going to happen this week. But first, let's understand Tango.

Grammar mistakes. We all make them. Sometimes they're forgiven. Sometimes not so much.

Great read for all!

h/t to +Brad Shorr for posting this on Twitter and putting it on the radar. :-)
Most articles will tell you that poor grammar can kill sales. While not as important in blog posts as in sales copy, grammatical errors can dissolve credib

Wow! A fast-moving evolution of the employment landscape...

"It has been predicted that by 2020, more working Americans will be freelancers than not."

By 2020, the majority of workers in the United States will be doing some kind of freelance work. There are pros and cons to being a freelancer.

Our dog has been a patient with Hope and Dr. Shanley (a dermatologist) since July of this year. While our general vet was baffled by the symptoms Luna was exhibiting, Dr. Shanley diagnosed her quickly and got her on a treatment plan that has improved her condition immensely. Dr. Shanley is personable, funny, compassionate, and has top level expertise in his specialty. The dermatology nurses are also top notch and are masters of communication. They field our calls and emails promptly when we have questions and they email test results and instructions to keep us in the know. We are extremely pleased with the services at Hope Veterinary Specialists, and more importantly, Luna feels at home and at ease there. The services there are not inexpensive, but you truly do get what you pay for at Hope.

I'm thrilled with my new website by 1 Sky Media! John Oppenheimer was highly collaborative (and patient) as I figured out what I wanted. He freely offered his expertise and gave wonderful suggestions and recommendations as we discussed the site design and functionality. I've gotten many compliments on my website - and my logo (which John designed, too.) The site has helped me build my brand, showcase what I do, and attract new clients and readers. I highly recommend 1 Sky Media to anyone looking for a website developer/designer who is skilled at both the artistic and technical aspects of creating a site.
