I really like Kathy's recent blog post A post of the day for the past week1 What a great idea and what great ideas we can all get from the posts on Active Rain!
What I Learned This Week in ActiveRain. February 5-February 11, 2012
I learn something new every day at ActiveRain and last week I wrote a post that put my money where my mouth is. Every day I found 1 post (and often there were many more) that taught me something.
It may have been about something techie... about blogging and SEO.... anything having to do with Staging or Real Estate... about the world or even about the Blogger.
So here are the posts for the week of February 5th that gave me that
“Ah Ha.. didn’t know that” moment.
February 5- Laura Giancotta - If you thought choosing your paint color was hard with everyone wanting to “Go Green” how do you know what all of the Green labels mean. Laura outlines 5 Green designations for paint.February 6- Jennifer Chiongbian- I keep telling myself to add a video to my website and blog and Jennifer talks about adding a video testimonial as well. But more there’s a link in her post to the Toilet Paper Entrepreneur that gives you 85 Tips for Branding Your Business! Great list!February 7-Chris Lewis -Chris wrote about Google and information that while we may have known it or thought it was confirmed via a secret Google document which gives guidelines for assessing SERP. One interesting point made was that duplicate content if well presented and informative it should be ranked according to its usefulness to its users.
February 8- Tammy Emineth-I know Bob Stewart wrote about re-introducing some of our former posts and Tammy adds another dimension by reminding us that Google likes fresh content. She always has a great way of explaining things so if you’re not sure how or why you should be re-introducing some of your former posts be sure to read this.February 9-Fred Griffin- I learned in Fred’s post that you can get in serious trouble for throwing a frisbee in California. And, I also saw a cute marketing piece based on this from Fred, who is in Florida, to bring people to Florida.February 10 -Marte Cliff- we’ve all been encouraged to place our testimonials and references on our websites or blogs. And with the increasing call for videos, some are using video testimonials. Marte suggests another way to use the compliments we receive. It’s so easy I wonder why I didn’t think of it.
February 11-Dorie Dillard-well if you haven’t made your dinner reservations, ordered your roses and purchased your Godiva and some bling then better hop to it. Dorie gave us a post on Valentine facts that I never knew. Read it and share it with your Valentine to impress them!
Thank you for letting me do what I love to do each day... learn something new!
