In addition to setting up client +Rick Teisan's free #wordpress blogs, I showed him how to connect them to his socials, so whenever he publishes a blog post it gets shared to his Twitter, FB, and LinkedIn accounts.

My client +Jilska Chandrasena is an agent for transformational change. This brilliant woman is a program director at the Braille Institute in Rancho Mirage where she creates programs serving the institute's visually impaired clients and community at large. It's such an honor to work with someone who does so much good in the world!

The Desert Environmental Youth Experience EYE for Leaders program guides grades 6-12 students active in their school's eco-clubs through the planning, creation and implementation of an environmental, service learning project on their campus or in their community. This free Wordpress blog was created to provide a forum through which to show potential community partners and donors of funds and materials what the program is about.

The sister site to my client +Rick Teisan's Marijuana Hill Realty blog, this site, Miracle Hill Realty, is where Rick showcases residential and commercial properties and posts articles about desert living.

Rick is finding these free Wordpress blogs to be a great source of client leads.

Check out Marijuana Hill Realty - my client +Rick Teisan's site for showcasing properties available for marijuana cultivators and dispensaries. This is a great niche site and has already brought many prospective and buying clients to Rick.

*VERY IMPORTANT: Stronger Post Filtering Has Been Turned On by Google**

When Google detects several posts being sent to a community from the same Google+ user within a matter of a few seconds or minutes, Google puts the posts in a spam bin. Google also marks posts as spam when one post is sent to several communities within a few seconds or minutes. Only community moderators, managers and owners can view the spam bin. It is then their job to approve or disapprove the posts for the community.

Google classifies multiple posts within short amounts of time as spam, because the posts appear in people's streams, unless users have their community notifications feature turned off. Some people get annoyed by receiving several posts from the same user. Some people also get upset if they are trying to post and another user "dominates" people's streams with their posts.

When you have multiple posts you want to share with a community or one post that you want to share with several communities, it is best to send posts over the course of a day or several days to avoid your post(s) getting marked as spam by Google.

Wow this is a first, but I am not digging the "new" Google+ at all. I just switched back to classic. I don't usually do that. But ugh. What a mess.

Hi folks! Sometimes it can be a real struggle to have a guest on TGIF who is not social media or computer inclined. In the beginning, I sometimes vow that I will have no more guests who are not already adept at using streaming video social media tools like Hangouts and Blab.

But then we finally get going, and the guest really shines, because we are now in their territory, discussing what they know. Today was one of those days, lol.

My guest Dennie Marks, owner of a promotional products company, struggled to get into the Blab, and we started late. She had been on Blab with me before, but she doesn't do it regularly and it was like starting over for the first time. I admit I got a wee bit frustrated.

But THEN when we finally got her up and running, and she started giving such great advice for how to choose the right promotional products for your #business and event, I was so glad that she was such a trooper and didn't give up - or let me give up either.

This was a really good, enlightening discussion with lots of great advice for any business considering buying #promotional products - from coffee mugs to pens - for an upcoming event or special occasion.

Click through to watch the replay on its #Blab page, or go to to see all replays and scheduled Blabs!
