Here is a PSA for all gamers: The Holiday Steam Sale has arrived. Get ready to dive between the couch cushions because this is basically wallet emptying season.

With Facebook throttling free business page post views, will Google+ see more activity?

I think Google's smart algorithm is similar enough to throttling. Except its level is determined by the user.

Hey Google Plus friends! I heard this place has a ton of new features, like some neat photo options. I'll need to investigate

I'm on a quest to share what I know about marketing, community and PR with indie game studios. 

Community is something close to me so I wrote about that today. 

I would love any feedback if this stuff is helpful! Also, give me more topics about what to write on.

This Nintendo Direct was awesome. Some many good games and Mario Kart 8 looks awesome.

Getting access to a bunch of content creation tools can often be difficult and expensive. Here are some tips I've learned along my path to get things done without all the massive price tag.
Everyone should be resourceful. Anyone in social media NEEDS to be resourceful. Image Manipulator - The first program that comes to mind for a lot of people is Photoshop. It’s still the best out...

Great experience. After my iPhone had a problem with the charging port, I searched for a place to bring it in. Glad I picked 911 Tech Repair since they are a great little shop not too far from the main downtown area of Arlington Heights. The guys were nice, super helpful and the price was extremely reasonable. The best part? It only took an hour for the repair to be done so I could be back in action in a jiffy (I use my phone heavily for work-related tasks). If I need more repairs on phones, I'm taking them here.
