Altocumulus cloud over Dorset - *#sevendaynaturechallenge** - Day 7*
As invited by +Phil Buckley​ this is my photo for the last day of my #sevendaynaturechallenge.

I'm no expert on clouds, but apparently this cloud type is called Altocumulus. This photo was taken late afternoon on Studland beach just off the road from the west side of the Sandbanks ferry and Swanage. A lone seagull decided to fly over and give the vastness of the cloud formation its perspective.

If you would like to take part in the #sevendaynaturechallenge, the rules are simple. Just tag me in and post a different nature photo daily for 7 days, but above all, have fun :)

When is a frog not a frog? - #sevendaynaturechallenge - Day 5
As invited by +Phil Buckley​​ this is my photo for the fifth day of my #sevendaynaturechallenge.

I never knew this but apparently when a tadpole becomes a baby frog and before it becomes an adult, is called a Froglet. This little Froglet was doing its best to not get trodden on as we went for a walk around a lake last year. It is tiny (as you can see with the hand it is held), but looked perfectly formed in every way as a frog.

Well apparently, toads are really frogs so they are still called froglets!

The Natural Beauty of Wood - #sevendaynaturechallenge - Day 3
As invited by +Phil Buckley​ this is my photo for the third day of my #sevendaynaturechallenge.

I love the natural beauty of wood, both in its natural raw form as in the photo attached to this post and in its finished state as with a piece of furniture made by a craftsman.

What will we lose if we leave the EU?
I must admit to being tied of the negative spin constantly being put out by the Beman campaign.

Their Sam video just about does it for me when the narrator says near the end:
"Leaving the EU will mean losing all of this"

So what else could we lose. Here's my tongue in cheek at some "_possibles_!

What is happening with Blab?
We've had Google Hangouts for some time. They have been a great place for Plussers to connect through, build relationships and share their knowledge and expertise.

Then along came Blab. Much simpler than Hangouts to set up, that's where they gathered momentum and for some are preferred to Hangouts for just that reason.

But, recent news from Blab has thrown confusion as to where Blab as
we have known in is going.

Fear not though as +Mike Allton has put together an excellent post to explain what's been happening and what to look for.
Blab, one of the most popular platforms today to create live video broadcasts and recordings, seems to be moving in a new direction and that has marketers extremely worried.

Thank you +Mike Allton for continually keeping me up to date with everything I need to know. My reliance on Hootsuite is thanks to you! Yep - HOAs are technically the best TV studio in town but they fell asleep at the wheel and BLAB took centre stage. I must that admit all these changes have made me go down the pre-recorded route for most of my video adventures. I also agree that Facebook is going to eclipse everything and I already see more G Plusses over there....
and........welcome back +Peter Lunn :)

Sunset over Derwentwater, Cumbia, UK - *#sevendaynaturechallenge** - Day 6*
As invited by +Phil Buckley​​​ this is my photo for the sixth day of my #sevendaynaturechallenge.

Foxing Around - #sevendaynaturechallenge - Day 4

This furry little critter appeared in our garden last year was quite content to chill in the morning sunshine and pose for the camera.

The Day of the Flying Ants - Caught in the Trap - #sevendaynaturechallenge - Day 2
As invited by +Phil Buckley​​​​​​, this my photo for the second day of my #sevendaynaturechallenge.

Yesterday I spoke about a day we have in the UK every year. The Day of the Flying Ants. They swarm and cause adults and children to duck, get splattered on car windscreens and generally create their own theatre of chaos.

Some though don't make it through the day being caught in a predator's trap.

The Day of the Flying Ants - Taking a Rest - #sevendaynaturechallenge - Day 1
As invited by +Phil Buckley​​​​, this my photo for the first day of my #sevendaynaturechallenge.

It seems that on one humid day every year in the UK it is the Day of the Flying Ants. They swarm and cause adults and children to duck, get splattered on car windscreens and generally create their own theatre of chaos. This was taken by me two years ago in our back garden.

Dancers in the Storm
I took this photo about 10 years ago at a dance show my then 5yo daughter was participating in. The dance in the photo was performed by the oldest group.

Recently, I have had a time in hospital and gave a large printed copy of it to them. For me it signified how I witnessed the staff on that ward. As individuals they were all lovely, but together they were even greater. A wonderful team of people, not just the nurses but every member of staff on the ward.

Hospitals are not the nicest places to be. To patients they can be like living in a whirlwind. But these dancers (nurses and staff) brought order to the chaos.

Twitter changes its limits
An interesting an much needed change today by Twitter where usernames and photos will no longer counting in the 140 character limit,. Also. a change to what is a reply and what is a mention.

Thanks to +Donna Beckett for sharing.
 
News from Twitter!

Twitter has announced a number of changes today, including one which will clear up the confusion between a mention and a reply.

Now Tweets that start with a @username will be seen by all of your followers rather than just those who follow both you and the @name mentioned. The failure to understand the old rules really did cause confusion and cause a lot of tweeters to, unintentionally, limit the reach of their tweets.

(Although, I think that I probably prefer the old version ..... seeing every @ tweet in a feed could clog feeds up!)

Add to this the fact that usernames, photos, etc will no longer count in the 140 character limit, and I think that it's, overall, good news but I do have reservations about all new @ tweets going into the stream.

What do you think about the proposed changes?

#Twitter #SocialMedia


You can already do a lot in a Tweet, but we want you to be able to do even more.

Story
Tagline
Love being involved in digital marketing ... video, photo, web, search engine optimisation and social media... Cracking Media. Life-long fan
Introduction
I have over 25 years experience in web, video and photography.

Specialties: Digital Media covering Video Production, Photography, Website Design, Search Engine Optimisation, Social Networking training and consultancy, Google+ enthusiast.

I love working with business owners to better understand their business and their products or services to help them better reach their target market.

These days, there's so much you can do to market your business online, but online marketing is more than a series of checkboxes you need to tick off as done,,.

Website - check. Promotional Video - check. Joined up and posting on social media - check. Kitchen sink - check... OK, forget the kitchen sink!

But seriously, it's important to identify how to best reach your target market: Who are they? What questions are they asking and what problems do they need solving? If you know the answers to those questions then you can be focussed on understanding your customer, answering their questions and providing solutions that more fully meet their needs.

Business
I jointly own Cracking Media specialising in promotional video production, photography and website design including search engine optimisation and social networking training and consultancy.

Cracking Media work with SMEs, corporates, charitable and public sector organisations, helping them to promote their products and services through engaging digital media.

Better not hang around... you Better Get Cracking!

Personal
When I am not involved in most things digital and web-related, my favourite pastime is watching my local football team AFC Bournemouth with my son. I've been watching them since my Dad first took me to a match when I was 8 years old. There's plenty of ups and downs as a fan of the Cherries, but I wouldn't support any other team.
