My first +Credit Karma blog post went live this week!

It's always scary and exhilarating writing about a topic that I haven't touched before. But I've gotta say, it's kinda nice to get back into the swing of things.

May have found my next credit card. It'd be awesome if this card actually encourages consumers to use their #credit responsibly.

The Hidden G+ Photo Stats - How-To

Your photos are getting way more views than you think!  Tell me if you are surprised when you look at your own stats...  of course, the total number of photo views does not really matter, but I think you'll be surprised how many more views they get than +1's.   

1)  Go to https://picasaweb.google.com/home 
2)  Click on the Photos from Posts (or an album if you post in a particular album)
3)  Click on the photo.
4)  Click on the photo AGAIN.  Look under the photo for the number of views.

The photo below is from http://goo.gl/photos/XLUbiFwp4d .

I tried this with one of +Tom Anderson's photos to show how many people were actually seeing his photos.  In the link that follows, he has about 2300 +1's but OVER 1.3 Million Views - http://goo.gl/QgLwE  

Are you also seeing the "multiplier" between +1's and Actual Photo Views?

Coolest window washers ever.
 
Just swinging by...Dressed as Spider-Man, a window washer with American National Skyline greets Le Bonheur Children's Hospital patient Orlando Farmer, 3, as he rappels down the outside of the building, in Memphis, Tenn., on Wednesday while cleaning the hospital's windows.

Is this new? Maybe I haven't noticed it because I usually scroll down my stream (habit) and use Circles on my phone. (HT +Robin M. Ashford)
 
I found a button in Google+ that's got me very excited!  http://marshallk.com/the-google-power-up-button

Social Media Bee & Customer Champion
Introduction
I aspire to be and do a lot of things. I will never call myself a "rockstar" or "guru" because there's always something new to learn. I change my mind all the time and have trouble picking a place to eat. I'm very klutzy and ditzy at times - but hey, I mean well. Yes, I'm known for loving social media a little too much, but I harbor a longing to become a youth services librarian someday.

I'm personally interested in anything related to social media, entertainment, technology, libraries, and weddings. I have recently started a new job at Credit Karma, and I'm excited to kick off my career as a support specialist at an organization that does good.
