"Whoopty do!" Did I detect a bit of sarcasm there, +Ana Hoffman ? LOL I haven't really gotten into Tsu (though I hear some are really making money with it), so anything new will have to trump that.

Microsoft's Bing Distill looks interesting. If they can keep the spam done and the nonsensical answers to a minimum, it might just catch on.

Appreciate the Saturday morning wake up call aka Marketing Skinny). Have a great week Ana.

+Johnna Crider Sabri Abdul Qader (the Gems & Minerals Diva) shares cool tips about #geological wonders -- in this case, #Citrine  and its relationship to job #interviews.

I'd never heard of Citrine so now I know what it is and what it's good for. Find out for yourself => http://www.gemsandmineraldiva.com/2015/03/how-can-i-ace-my-job-interview.html

Is your business "too small" for business intelligence?
Come share your thoughts and how you're collecting metrics across your organization.

http://www.bluewiremedia.com.au/blog/2015/02/increase-your-business-intelligence

*Excerpt*
The realm of business intelligence (BI) is misunderstood and under-represented as a tool for small businesses who are enthusiastically interacting on the social media scene, aggressively pursuing content creation strategies, and lending their voices and faces to podcasting and video marketing.

Participation in those activities naturally demands that their results be tracked, analyzed, measured and justified. The new kids on the block include social media metrics, dynamic pricing strategies, content marketing analytics, and podcasting metrics. 

We’re talking about activities primarily conducted online, so not only do you need a web marketing strategy but also the analytics peculiar to online activities and a strong understanding of what those metrics represent.

Both individuals and businesses are guilty of printing too much paper.

Although Gutenberg might not agree with the need to decrease non-essential printing, small businesses can reduce costs by printing less paper and adopting a managed print services (MPS) mindset across the organization.

If you're thinking about where MPS fits in your business or wondering about the benefits and savings, check out _Too Much Paper? Adopt A Managed Print Services Mindset_

Wasting trees? Printing too much paper? Think managed print services (MPS) to reduce non-essential printing.

Happy and excited to see a +TeamworkPM (now just "Teamwork")  chat app that will eventually integrate with their flagship project management software.

Lots of feedback since the announcement. I added my wish list ...

http://www.teamwork.com/blog/announcing-teamwork-chat/#comment-238748

Great idea, TeamWork team.

Tossing in my votes for:

(1) Linux client
(2) Accessible from within TeamWork with history saved to related project
(3) Searchable
(4) Logging into TW logs into chat and vice versa
(5) Able to invite external clients/team members with appropriate permissions (i.e., this chat only but not other chats; chat related to a specific project but can only see what is allowed)

Here is a related +Quora question that asked about #Teamwork   vs. #Slack  for #projectmanagement  and chat:

What's the most surprising thing about you that others don't (yet) know?

+Holly Jahangiri surprised me with what she revealed. And you might be surprised by what I revealed about myself in the comments on her article. Go read, share and prepare to be a little shocked (or to shock someone else).

+Ana Hoffman Hi Ana, 

Have I ever told you . . . I don't read your Weekly Skinny for the on-point, up-to-date happening news, tools, and discussions.

I just come over to see your latest, eye-popping, images.

There! I said it!

Of course, I hang around, read "The Skinner" (yep, got my coffee), click on a link or three, share the "Ish" out of it ... LOL

Thanks, Ana!

Have you ever had problems trying to figure out what to write about on your blog? Have you tried figuring out if there are things you can add to your blog to help attract readers?

Marcie Hill is the author of 62 Blog Posts To Overcome Blogger's Block. In it she gives 62 examples of things people have done with their blog to encourage participation while also figuring out what to write about.  It's a well constructed, beautifully looking book and it even includes a small thing that yours truly has on his blog that few others have.

This interview will go about an hour and I expect I'll be trying to take questions via the Q&A Hangout app. It should be fun; hope to see y'all there!
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Mitch Mitchell. The live video broadcast will begin soon.
