Some of  you have had issues trying to add your About.me widgets to Edublogs and Blogger because About.me has changed their website and haven't updated their support documentation.  So I've created these how to instructions to help.  If you are using Blogger you grab the exact same embed code as shown for Edublogs and add it to a HTML gadget in your sidebar.  Hope it helps. 
About.me Widget. Posted on November 19, 2014 by Sue Waters · Print Friendly. You can pull your About.me profile information, and a small screenshot of it, into a text widget in your sidebar using embed code from About.me. About me widget ...

Would love to hear what  you use for photo editing!  Do you use an online photo editor, desktop editor or photo editing apps!
 
Looking for free online image editors to use with students?  Check out our list of our favorite online editors! 

Have a favorite that we missed or anything to add?  Let us know!  Or tell us about your favorite desktop or photo editing app!
Learning how to use image editing software can be difficult and time consuming. And, teaching students how to use it can be even more challenging. Luckily, there are several free, online alternativ...

+Michael Graffin it is but more related to the fact take less photos on Android as it is the one area that iphone is better. Also most my photos are taken when travelling. I'll take random photos at home but less likely to share.

Thought some of you might find the following article helpful. Provides tips for small businesses who are trying to work out which social media networks you should invest time in and what to consider.

Key points that work for our company include:
1. Priortising which social media networks are the most important for what we are trying to achieve.
2. Social media strategy for each network e.g. type of content we share on each, how often we share
3. Monitoring engagement on each to help identify effectiveness which helps guides improvements

Other important trends to be aware of are content creation and content curation. For those with tablets I recommend the Flipboard app and subscribe to 'Why Curate' Flipboard magazine. Great source for latest articles on content marketing, social media and content curation for businesses.
Don't waste your time messing around on social sites that have no ROI for you. Here's how you can do better at gaining leads on the sites that are...

My husband has his own small business and is often asking me questions about it so I thought these tips might help others.

Another important ingredient is working out the information that would help others while also enabling you to connect with them. In your situation since you are promoting Perth networking I would think about sharing helpful tips to help small businesses network with the occassional tips about buying and selling homes.

In terms of posting frequency our policy is a few times a week for Facebook, several times a day in Google + and every 2 hours in Twitter (weekdays). Differences in frequency based on how people use the different platforms. PS we can get away with the high Twitter posting due to high followerer numbers (i.e. you also need to look at your network and their activity to decide).

Linkedin isn't something I've needed to focus much on due to the nature of our business so am interested if any one has some tips on how they use.

Students who are interested in the building industry or architecture may enjoy these viral videos.
 
For those interested in Architecture you may enjoy watching these viral videos.
Is YouTube a valuable source of education and inspiration when it comes to architecture, or just an ocean of mindless tomfoolery for the procrastination gene...

In case you missed it when I updated the Twitter Guide for 2014 I also wrote a separate post on Hashtags, Twitter Chats and using Tweetdeck. 
 
Twitter chats are one of the best ways for educators to connect with other educators, exchange and debate ideas, ask for help and provide assistance, find new resources and take action. The challen...

Introduction

I'm Australian based in Perth whose passionate about helping others learn how to use web technologies.

This passion has lead to my transition from aquaculture lecturer, to facilitating professional development workshops on elearning and web 2.0 technologies to my current role working for Edublogs as Edublogs Support Manager and as a documentation writer on WordPress for WPMU DEV .
