As a reformed WordPress basher turned WordPress lover I actually love and use both platforms. For me, both serve different functions but are equally as important for my blogging strategy. This blog is used on the WordPress.com platform but my primary blog is on the WordPress.org platform which is used when I need to add a variety of plugins and lots of bells and whistles. I use the WordPress.com format when I need to go with a simpler format. Take a look at the video and Infographic below to help you select which WordPress platform is best for you.

I noticed recently after starting to manage another brand that I have been getting SLAMMED with Spam. I literally have 870 comments, all of which are probably spam. Of course I have a filter to address this, however it is very annoying, stupid and very time consuming to address. Honestly, I really have never seen so much nonsense in my entire life. My thoughts are why would a person even bother, just to get a link?
The biggest question in my mind is , ” Wouldn’t it just be easier to build your own traffic?” This is especially the case since most people that blog have some kind of filter to block this kind of thing so the spam won’t even get approved. Take a look at the infographic below to get a view of The History of Spam.
I am a GREAT LOVER of Facebook, Timeline and all. One of the things that I DO NOT like is that Facebook offers the option of people that you are friend with to say that you’ve WORKED together and does NOT present you with the option of refuting that. THIS needs to be addressed.
I have had a number of people claim that we’ve worked together and that i’ve worked with them at companies that have never employed me. In ever instance, we are friends in a networking sense as I use my Facebook to extend my network and as a business tool. It boggles my mind that people would obviously state a blatant untruth, knowing that I would see it. Could it be a situation that if they say it enough times, it will make it truth?
Take a look at the image below and notice four people that claimed that we’ve worked together. Yet I have never worked for any of these companies, and with any of these people.
Is this a new thing in the social media arena? Thoughts? Has this happened to you? What have to you done about it if anything? Please share your experiences and remedies if this has happened to you?
