How much content should you create in one day?

If you have a business, sell a product, or you’re just trying to build your brand online, trying to determine how much content to post and where to post it has always been a burning, age-old question. For instance, how much content should you create in one day? The answer varies wildly. There’s really no right answer. What a lot of companies and individuals have trouble with is what...

Online tools: Zoom and Loom

As the Internet grows and more and more of us create content for and communicate on the Web, the tools that help us complete our tasks get even better. And our options are vast. Sometimes it’s hard to find the right tool for the job. Today I want to talk about two excellent tools I use to A) communicate face to face with people online and B) give people instruction with the help of screen...

Are you ready for Quibi?

What in the world is Quibi? Perhaps you’ve heard some buzz about the new content platform or maybe you have no idea what I’m talking about. I barely do because Quibi is so new and I’ve only gotten a few tidbits here and there about what it truly is. Quibi is supposed to be an evolutionary video-streaming technology that delivers portrait and landscape video at the same time...

Why I’m starting to unfollow meme accounts

How many times have you jumped on Instagram only to be sucked down the rabbit hole of memes? By memes, I mean the images created by users that just show an image and some clever text to give you quick laugh. Some of these content creators are just short of genius, don’t get me wrong. They have some witty and amazing ability to make these dumb memes make you crack a rib laughing, but for me...

Is ibotta worth it? If you like extra money, then yes

I’ve preached about this app many times before, so my apologies if you’ve heard it. And no, I don’t work for ibotta. I just like that they give me money for things I already buy. If you’re looking to make any extra money per month on things you already plan to buy anyway, then this app may be something you want to to check out. It’s called ibotta. Long story short...

A look back to when Twitter was just a funny word

Not only was Twitter a funny word, according to this photo there were a lot of funny moments back in Tucson, Arizona. Many moons ago, I worked in Tucson. Matter of fact, it was 2005 -2010. When I first moved there from Southern Minnesota, I was in shock. Easy to understand since it was a complete cultural bodyslam. I was a kid who could barely handle ‘Extra Mild’ Pace Picante sauce...

The free, online version of Photoshop when you need it most

If you love Photoshop, you know the only thing that can hold you back is if you’re not on a computer where you have it installed (or licensed). Maybe you need to fix a photo, make a graphic for a work party, or Photoshop somebody’s head on someone else’s body. If you aren’t near your computer, have no fear. I found an amazing website that can help in a flash. It’s a...

I ditched cable for YouTube TV and I’m smiling

And it’s a big smile. I ditched cable for YouTube TV. If you read yesterday’s post about upgrading your AT&T devices, you may have noticed I can’t stand dealing with service providers like cable and phone companies. They survive by feeing you to death. Fee here, fee there, added fee, discounted but fee in 6 months and so on. It’s maddening. Surely you’ve been...

A Facebook video you should not click on (even though you want to)

Chances are you’ve been perusing your Facebook feed lately and noticed a video with an image of a disgusting bump on some poor fella’s hand (no, I didn’t watch it, but after some research, I’ll just tell you: it’s abscess (something I recommend you don’t watch unless you’re into that kind of thing, a medical student or just someone who likes nasty things...

Gibbstack Twitter hacked?

I was perusing Twitter and happened upon a tweet about Ben Gibbard (front man for one of my favorite bands Death Cab for Cutie). When I clicked on his handle, I was a bit perplexed as to why I was transported to another country, another world for that matter as I didn’t understand the language of the person who’d taken over his account. I did some quick searches as to if Gibbard...
