So proud of +Luria Petrucci​. You go girl!
 
+Luria Petrucci is getting ready to do an interview for WOM. She's prepping for her TEDx speech coming up in May. So happy for her. She's freezing, of course, so she's enjoying a nice hot cup of tea.

Today's post is a simple answer to a simple question :)
To get your blog out there and to be recognized by Google, you have to have the right SEO strategy in place. If you do, you'll find yourself ranking high up in Google's SERPs. If so, how do you make sure that your posts are properly optimized for Google's search engine then? Read on if you want to understand the basics.

This is something that a lot of you might not want to hear, especially if you're the kind of person with multiple passions. But, it's something I definitely do believe in. In today's article, I share why I think you should ONLY start ONE blog. Check it out.
If you’re anything like me, you’re passionate about many things, and have probably thought about starting blogs. Or, if you’re exactly like me, you already have two blogs. In this post, I’m going to share why I think you should ONLY start ONE blog.

If you use Social Media to market your business, you probably already know how difficult it can be to keep up with everything. Just try to keep up with Facebook algorithm changes and you know what I mean.

That's why we (+Social Media Examiner) are building the Social Media Marketing Society. To help marketers keep on the leading edge of Social Media by focusing on what works. Check out this video. If you resonate with it, you should join the founders list - http://www.smmarketingsociety.com

Also, If you know somebody who can benefit from this, share this video with them.
The Social Media Marketing Society (from Social Media Examiner) is a place where marketers can discover the latest social media marketing techniques.

Yeah, so I'm looking forward to when these self-driving cars are everywhere. It'll make travel much easier (and cooler). #thefutureisnow  
 
We started designing the world’s first fully self-driving vehicle to transform mobility, making it easier, safer and more enjoyable for everyone to get around. Now we're ready for the next step of our project: this summer, our prototype vehicles will leave the test track and hit the familiar roads of Mountain View, California, with our safety drivers aboard.

There has been a very interesting trend in the blogosphere recently with people removing comments from their blog. I can definitely understand why. The question is - Should YOU remove comments? Am I planning on removing comments? Well, if you want my honest answer, check out this post.
Comments can be a great way to build a community around your blog. But, you'll later realize that with your blog's growth comes an increasing number of spam comments as well. So, should you go ahead and remove the comments feature in your blog or should you just leave it as it is? How should you deal with it?

Changing the world One Blog At A Time
Introduction
"If you have ideas to share, you have a blog in your mind" - Leslie Samuel

--------------------------------

Everyone has ideas, and I believe that these ideas are meant to be shared. Our society is built on ideas. Ideas change the world.

Since 2008, I've been using the power of blogs to share my ideas with the world, and to teach others to do the same.

From Biology to internet marketing, I've seen how powerful blogs can for establishing authority, helping others, and even landing my dream job as a University Professor.

--------------------------------

What are my blogs?
  • Interactive Biology - Where I teach Biology to tens of thousands of people all over the world
  • Become A Blogger - My blog, podcast and training program where I teach others to build blogs that change the world. This project was done in collaboration with Gideon Shalwick and Yaro Starak out of Australia.
--------------------------------

So why am I on Google Plus?

Simple - because I believe that Google Plus ROCKS! I love the features and plan on using it more to interact with people all over the world to help share my ideas even further :)

Thanks for checking out my page. Hope to connect with you on here!

I spent a week in this hotel and was pretty impressed. The rooms had a nice modern flare, the facilities were pretty classy and the service was pretty decent. Location: It's right on the strip. This may or may not be good depending on what you're into. On the good side, it's right where everything is happening. On the bad side, it's right where everything is happening. This is blatantly obvious by the many people with signs and t-shirts letting you know how you can call a number and girls will be sent to you within 20 minutes. Some people might like this, others (like myself) could do without ;) Customer service: From checkin to check out, all of the workers were very polite and helpful. Room service, in my opinion was o.k. However, It seems as if they just did the bare minimum (make up the bed and change the towels). On the other hand, with all that happens in Vegas, I can understand their hesitation to go beyond that. They just might find something they don't want to find :) Rooms: The rooms were pretty modern and classy. The beds were very comfortable and there's absolutely nothing I can find negative to say about the accommodations. Much better than some of the others I've seen. One thing to note is that there is a $25/day Guest fee. This covers internet, access to the gym and a number of other things. I wasn't expecting this at all, because it wasn't stated on my orbitz receipt. This ended costing me $180 more than expected. This is just something to be aware of and to account when budgeting your trip. Like many Vegas hotels, there's lots to do there. From checking out the dolphins to swimming in the pool, all kinds of shows and many ways to keep yourself entertained. The internet was useable, but definitely not fast. I wouldn't expect to be streaming HD videos, but it works. All in all, if I were going to Vegas again, I would definitely consider staying here.

After looking at the prices of the food in my hotel, I ventured on a trek to find good breakfast outside of the hotel. Then I saw a bright yellow familiar sign - DENNY'S. Yayyy! Now, we all know Denny's - you get decent food (especially breakfast) at a relatively affordable price. Well, this is pretty much the same as any other Denny's - no surprises. Just Denny's. For some reason, I expected the price to be a little inflated, but that was not the case. I've seen other reviewers complain about the wait. Well, when I went there were a lot of people there (to me that's always a good sign). However, I was seated within about 5 minutes. The service was decent. The waitress was polite, and the food came within 10 minutes of me ordering. All in all, it was a pretty good experience. If you find yourself in Vegas and need an affordable breakfast - Denny's is a pretty good place. *What I ordered* Main dish: Country-fried steak & Eggs. Tasted very good. Side: Pancake puppies. Tasted alright, but wasn't a big fan. Only ended up eating 1.5 Drink: Groovy Mango smoothie. This was AWESOME. Tasted like real mango. Special tip: Bottled water (Dasani) is only $1.59. Might as well grab a few of those and bring it to your hotel room. It sure beats the $5 you'll pay for the same thing in that expensive refrigerator in your room :)
