The Nugget

I know many of you are wondering why I refer to our son as The Nugget (or nugs or just nugget)… It’s really simple, there is no real reason. My brother started calling my little guy and his friend’s little girl ‘the nuggets’ as they were born around the same time. And when I started writing again, it just stuck. I am not opposed to sharing his name (I do on my personal spaces like Facebook) but the internet is forever and I don’t want to force him to have all of......

Twitter Spoofing

Recently, I had an interesting situation. A friend emailed me to tell me that someone was tweeting under a very similar username to mine, and mentioning my friends in the tweet. She had sent my usual “Shabbat Shalom” tweet on a Wednesday and @’ed my friends. Odd. I looked her up. Turns out, she had used my header image, my username, and every few hours… tweeted my tweets. I felt violated....

Disable the Dashboard in OS X Mavericks

I downloaded the new OS X Mavericks for my macbook and I love it… except there are a few things that I have been struggling with. One was that the Dashboard launched if I sneezed the wrong way… I would just swipe the wrong way and while I was in the middle of working, I would end up in the dashboard. UGH! It was driving me crazy. So I googled and found this article from IT World: http://www.itworld.com/operating-systems/379426/disable-dashboard-os-x-mavericks...

Days like today…

When crisis strikes in Colorado, Israel or really anywhere in the world, my days look like this: Wake up. Learn there is a crisis. Obsessively check Facebook, Twitter, news outlets, any information I can find online (in the case of the November 2012 Israeli engagement it was an awesome blogger giving blow by blow)....

Ever Been Threatened On Your Blog?

Add me to that list. Last year I wrote about a dubious email I received from a Matthew T. Keener of CMO Summits.  You can read the blog post in full here – Marketing Directors Targeted in Scam|Spam. I wrote about how when I tried to learn more about this potential professional development opportunity I hit one road block after another which made me curious about this organization. In the end, I wrote that others had branded this a scam, the IP addresses and emails were marked as spam and though they......

New Facebook Marketing Tactic

I recently spoke at a Jewish Federations of North America (JFNA) training session about social media with a dear friend and SM phenom, Shana Sisk. While we were talking through some tactics, I mentioned that Facebook has a new marketing tactic that I have found very useful. They are calling it “Promoted Posts.” I did not realize until then that this hadn’t been rolled out system-wide yet. I am very thankful that Facebook choose me and my business page – Allied Jewish Federation of Colorado – to test this new option. It......

Creating A Return On An Investment…

ROI – in business ROI stands for return on investment… And that is exactly what Lynn Schusterman got from the recent ROI Community Summit in Jerusalem, a return on her investment of the future of the Jewish people.

From the United States, Israel, England, South Africa, Latvia, Brussels, Turkey, and even Uganda, we represented 30 countries. As a community, we descended on Jerusalem......
