Do you have your goals in place for 2014? Make sure their set the SMART way and you're more likely to achieve them. The SMART formula allows you not only to set goals (both short and long term), but helps you put a plan in place to so you'll know how you're going to achieve them.
How you set goals is as important as the goals you set. Use the SMART method to build on small successes and meet larger goals.

What great ideas! I always forget to take pictures. Not this year!
Capturing Christmas memories can be difficult with two young children running around. The toddler is overcome with excitement and diving into presents faster than the speed of light and the baby go...

Nice overview of Competitive EdgeRank - how you can compete with your competitors in your fans' News Feed. But here's the catch: Your competitors may not be who you think they are. Interesting overview.

Important info for bloggers! Check to be sure how your plugins are affecting different aspects of your blog -- including RSS.
 
WordPress users should be aware that not every plugin is as innocuous as it may seem at first glance. At the day job (Community Manager +FeedBlitz ) I ran into a case where a deal blogger was using a plugin to curate deals. While I can't say what the intention of the plugin creator was, the net result was massive amounts of hidden content injected into the blogger's feed. Search engines would not view this favorably and probably won't care about the intent.

We've been *very* happy with Dr. Hosier Orthodontics. They have an easy check-in process (you can do it yourself), friendly staff, and Dr. Hosier is always available. He's very clear when planning treatment and options, and explains progress at each visit. We've taken both of our children to Dr. Hosier. My son has his braces off and smiles every chance he gets. He loves to show off his improved smile. We recommend Dr. Hosier completely.
