Did You Hear These 10 Awesome Podcasts Last Month?

As a huge podcast consumer, this month I decided to share podcast episodes that stood out for me in May (instead of blog posts). If you're a blogger, online marketer or content specialist, make sure you don't miss most of these...I threw in a personal interest podcast on philosophy (Socrates, anyone?) and as always, this monthly cheat day includes a recipe from +Chef Dennis Littley

Some of the podcasters featured include: +Sonia Simone, +Jerod Morris, +Marcus Sheridan, +TomWoodsTV, +james altucher, +Jason Keath, +Jeffrey Tucker,

Topics include Simon's weekly ritual for organization and motivation, how to book great podcast guests, what a rice pudding business teaches us about entrepreneurship, sharpening your editing and writing skills, an interview with former U.S. presidential candidate Ron Paul, and more...

See the complete list: http://bit.ly/1TWrANn

How Digital Writer +Sean Platt Grew From Dad Blogger to Prolific Author

Here it is--My interview with Sean Platt, Indie Author Extraordinaire...

If you want to make a living as a digital writer and haven't figured out what type of writing will get you there, I can't think of a better story to share than Sean's experiences.

He's done about every form of writing you can think of: started out as a daddy blogger (built a large following) and wrote seo content articles for $5 a pop.

He even wrote wedding vows for couples.

This wasn't paying the bills, so he pivoted into copywriting and made a great income for a few years...

But he still had not found his writing passion at that point...

Just a few years ago, he began writing serialized fiction with a partner named Dave...

Not limited by genre and using a few pen names, Sean wrote stories in science fiction, fantasy, horror, children's books, and more...

3 million words later, he couldn't be happier...

You see, Sean also is an entrepreneur, and he's figured out how to write fiction, self publish it (mostly) and do well financially.

In this interview, you get to hear him talk about how he figured this out along the way and what he does today to keep the prolific page turners flowing and the money coming in.

Sean is just getting started. He's got bigger plans ahead...

Read the transcript of this fascinating interview or listen to the audio:

Sean Platt has a remarkable story--from writing low paying seo articles to copywriting success and now a published author who writes fiction for a living.

Saving the Lost Art of Conversation

“i am going to be a little boring,” Sherry Turkle announces as we sit down to tea in the living room of her sprawling Boston townhouse. “And you’re going to be a little boring, too.”

Turkle, for the record, is not boring. She is a psychologist and a professor at MIT whose primary academic interest—the relationship between humans and machines—is especially relevant in today’s networked age. Her most recent book, Alone Together: Why We Expect More From Technology and Less From Each Other, explores our reliance on devices that can isolate us under the auspices of connection. 

Published in 2011, it poured 384 pages’ worth of water onto technological optimism at a time when most of the culture preferred to focus on the promise and allure of digital devices. In this environment, Turkle has been one of only a handful of experts willing to come out as tech-skeptical, which has made her a regular on the op-ed/Colbert Report/ted Talk circuit.

Why I Don't Do Facebook Bashing or Single Platform Worship

I don't know if there's something in the water, but people seem to be praising Facebook more these days than bashing it. In fact, I'm hearing more and more people reveal the same thing I'm seeing--no social platform brings more traffic to my blog than Zuckerberg's baby.

When +Brent Jones first guest posted on +Build Your Own Blog - Blogging Tips 15 months ago, he was singing the praises of G+ and didn't have fond things to say about Facebook.  Back then, it was a fashionable exercise. 

As the first quarter of 2016 slips away, things are much different now for many online marketers.

Facebook has grown on some folks...

Brent reveals his website numbers that prove Facebook is leading the pack. http://bit.ly/1Vo07DZ

I have to agree with him.

Do you?

When I was a mama of three very tiny, very messy, very beautiful rug rats, we had DAYS THAT WENT ON FOR LIFETIMES.

Craig left at 6:00 am every morning and as I watched his showered, ironed self leave the house I felt incredibly blessed and thrilled to have so much time alone with my babies and incredibly terrified and bitter to have so much time alone with my babies.

If you don’t believe that all of those feelings can exist at once—well, you’ve never been a parent to many tiny, messy, beautiful rug rats.
When Craig returned each day at 6:00 pm (he actually returned at 5:50 but took a STUNNINGLY LONG TIME TO GET THE MAIL) he’d walk through the door, smile, and say—
“So! How was your day?”

+Daniel Domingos asked us to share this, and I'll do it for Daniel.

Plus, any country without corruption sounds like a good goal.

Thank you, Matthew !!
Brazil is a country of many corrupt politicians, the possible Dilma output is just the beginning of one of the necessary changes.
A large majority of Brazilian politicians steal and lie to the poorest people.

We pay high taxes and our money is used to enrich corrupt people. Here the health, education and housing are bad because of it.

Please see more on my Twitter account.

Introduction
Hi there. I'm Matthew Kaboomis Loomis.
 
Yeah, there's a story behind the funny middle name...Maybe sometime over coffee I can share that with you...I use it online primarily to distinguish myself from the 55 other Matthew Loomis's on the internet. 

I'm a part time SAHD (Stay-at-Home-Dad) and a full time  happy home-based entrepreneur who started working for himself back in 2012. I've been a full time
SAHD while also working from home full time, so I can relate to folks who do this.

I work unconventional hours and have become a life hacking student, so I'm always looking for better, more efficient ways to improve this challenging yet satisfying and rewarding lifestyle. 

Many people wish they could quit their j-o-b and work from home like me...it's a fantastic way to live, but it takes hard work to make it work. Many don't realize how hard freelancers, solopreneurs, and home based business people work to be successful. It's not for everyone. There are certain personalities that are better suited for a job working for someone else.
 
Being a SAHD alone is hard enough, as many of you know firsthand....Blend it all together and that's me. That's what I'm about and what I write about (along with copywriting and marketing content for clients.)

They say every great accomplishment requires great effort. Still true in 2014. If you're a SAHD or home based freelance solopreneur, be sure to circle me. I'd like to "hang out" with you. 

But I do a lot of business with small business owners and marketing/advertising professionals, which is why I post a lot about marketing and media, particularly the copywriting and content marketing angle, along with some posts on television and film advertising. 

I also do occasional political posts, but don't worry, 95% of them only go to those in my political circle. I only put people in that circle who enjoy those posts. But I am outspoken on personal privacy issues, but most people like personal privacy, so it's all good. 

I also post some about music, psychology, parenting and marriage relational stuff and pop culture. I also started a community here on G+ called Pro Football Lovers. Check it out if you dig the NFL. https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities/110983393539021759475
