Should Your Brand Be Discussing News & Politics On #SocialMedia?

It’s difficult when you work in social media to not want to be first. There is a wives’ tale out there that the first one out on Twitter will go the most viral, but unfortunately, that idea is missing its partner. The first one out that provides valuable information will most likely see the most engagement. There’s a large amount of brands right now only focusing on the first half, which has left them in some pretty embarrassing predicaments. The...

An Open Letter To The Men Who Are Offended I Write About Suicide

Hello there, You do not know me, but you definitely feel enough a part of my life to leave strongly opinionated comments on my posts about suicide. I cannot imagine what you have experienced in your own life to feel so justified to slap someone on the wrist for openly sharing their tragic experience with a sister committing suicide.

5 Tools To Create Social Media Graphics For Free

Most of us know that social media can be one of the most under-resourced teams in an organization. Executives who do not know the ins and outs of social often think it should only take one person to post a few things on social. We all know it takes so much more than that to create graphics, write copy, strategize and community manage → especially if it’s a large organization. However, until companies are more educated on what actually goes...

How To Get Yourself Out Of Your Rut

I listened to an amazing sermon today by TD Jakes. It was all about the questions we ask God, and what we ask of life in general. The quote that really struck me was, “Don’t ask God for a handout, ask God for a hand up.” In other words, instead of begging God to hand us absolutely everything we desire, we should be asking God to help us get back on our feet so we can achieve what we desire....

Is Twitter Worth It Anymore?

With the introduction of Snapchat, Instagram stories and soon-to-be-available-to-brands Facebook stories, I see a lot of chatter online about whether Twitter is still ‘worth’ the time investment. The frustration with Twitter’s time investment is not new.

Eleven years after Twitter's...
