I've read about #reddit , visited it, but never signed up for an account. 

Thanks, +Chad Egeland, for another boost to get me there.
Have you experimented with marketing on Reddit yet? If not learn what Reddit is, how it helps in content discovery and how it drives traffic to your site.

Yes, tying in your social with current events might be something you want to achieve. But you have to get your facts straight.

What do you think of the latest social media faux pas?

I've been publishing new short fiction works recently. Here's one of my favorites from the past few weeks.
Rosemarie Salentine almost died taking a penguin’s picture. Though it wasn’t really her fault, even if she had her obnoxious high-quality flash attached to her DSLR as she shot using her iPhone 5s,...

Hootsuite has gone through a major rebranding initiative, and with the rebranding comes a number of cool announcements and developments!

Prompts  - 
 
One of my favorite prompts lately has been thanks to YouTube. I watch a lot of gaming content, so I like to imagine myself as a character in the gaming content, and write about what life is like.

For instance, how would you describe life in this city if you were a resident?

The conclusion to Dinosaur Ambulance. This is a short story that I wrote based on a prompt.

Read Part 1 and Part 2 of Dinosaur Ambulance.   Angie. Her amber hair and deep green eyes searched the crowd swelling around her. And then she landed on mine. I felt my face open up into a nic...

This is a great post to keep you grounded in your social efforts.

Don't fit a social channel to your brand, fit your brand to a social channel.

What new channels have you tried out for your social marketing?
It hasn't been obvious how brands can use Snapchat, because the one-to-one messaging and pictures self-destruct after just a few seconds. Find out why you should resist the temptations of new socia...

Story
Tagline
Dan Polley is a Wisconsin food blogger @ A Duo of Chefs; social media strategist
Introduction
I am a Wisconsinite whose main loves include gardening, cooking and cycling. Oh, and social media.

You can find me creating content for two blogs: A Duo of Chefs, which focuses on food, gardening and healthy living; and #mansquees, which focuses on business and social media, among other things.

I love checking out new social media channels and tools, so if you know of one you love or have one in beta, pass the word along.

The photos above come from the food blog, A Duo of Chefs. Enjoy!

If you're looking to put me in circles, here's some suggestions: food, foodies, puppies, public relations, journalism, bloggers, writers, comic books, manga, photography, artists, cycling, social media.
