I've been having an internal debate about whether to publish on Medium.

On one hand it's becoming a huge space for creatives, but on the other, I like the sense of a "homepage" with a blog. 

What are your thoughts?

The blogging platform devised by the creator of Blogger and co-creator of Twitter might just be the next big thing.

Show of hands: How many of you have published a novel that you wrote during #nanowrimo

I'm an eight-time participant and a four-time winner, but I've never revised and published anything I've written during the month.

(I'm in the process of revising and writing the second draft of my 2014 novel, which I hope to finish by mid-February.)

I had a novella I worked on during NaNoWriMo published in an anthology. Words are words. There's nothing better or worse about writing a first draft in November.

"Indeed, Facebook could vastly expand the depth of its video tools by offering comments next to videos and creating video hubs." 

Can Facebook be the next video hub? It's certainly giving YouTube, Twitch, et. al. a run for their money. 

What do you think? Do you share or consume a lot of video on Facebook?

It's among the tactics I'm implementing for pages I administer this year.

With hubs though, Facebook could turn pages -- which are experiencing some pretty low engagement rates -- into destinations for fans.

Awesome deal. This is free on Google Play today.

I'm hooked on a soundtrack.

I love this project in Latvia to show how bikes take up less space. It's a great idea. #cycling   #bikeadvocacy  
  Cyclists in Riga, Latvia donned homemade contraptions made of bamboo and twine to simulate the amount of space a vehicle takes up on the road. Cycling advocate Viesturs Silenieks came up wit...

Dan Polley is a social media director by day and a writer and editor by night.
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.
