For those adding me to your circles - Thank you! I look forward to seeing your posts and getting to know you better.

I do have two favors to ask:
1) If you haven't done so already, please fill out your profile as fully as possible and
2) post something. Anything - a quote, share a website, post an opinion.

If you add me and your profile reads "male" and nothing else - I find it hard to add you. Oddly enough, I don't have a "male" circle.

I do have a circle for Event Professionals, College and High School Friends, Social Media Gurus, Graphic Designers, Marketing Champions, Techys, Public Personas, Photographers, Fellow Foodies, Travel - well, you get the picture. I just want to know where you're going to fit. If you make your own jewelry and I find that fascinating, I'll create a new Jewelry circle, I promise.

I need to know SOMETHING about you to add you, though.

As with any social media, the more you put in, the more you'll get out. It starts with your profile.
Thank you!

What do top SEOs do that you aren't currently doing? They:

1. Identify the most valuable pages (MVPs!) of their sites.
2. Optimize those pages for conversions of emails or sales.

And now, +Derek Halpern shows you how to use Google Analytics to find your MVPs...and better, he gives you 5 ways to optimize your best pages.

Text "FOOD" to UNICEF (864233) to donate $10--enough to feed a child for 10 days.

And Day Three of pounding pipes in the wall next to my bed is in full swing. Not a way to relax on 'vacation'. On day one we were told that they'd have a new room for us on day 2. On day 2 the promised room was given to someone else and all they had now were rooms on the same wall under construction.
Never again, El Dorado Maroma, Karisma Hotels. Never again.

Anyone have any travel tips for Playa del Carmen? Is XCaret worth the time / money?

We're at MPI WEC this week and realized too late that we had packed too few business cards. This Tip of the Day from M&C magazine came just in time!

I'm really loving the new connections I'm making here, and love this idea from +Cheryl Lawson! I'm looking for circle ideas - tell me a bit about yourself. What are your passions? I gave Cheryl - Business Owner, Event Designer, Photography, Foodie, Travel, Addicted to Wanderlust. How about you?

Sorting out my schedule for WEC. (Great app!) Wondering how to clone myself - there's great content this year! (+Jessica Levin and +Midori Connolly - is your session on Social Gaming for Events repeated? Several times??)
