I blogcrastinated (see Tuesday’s post below) on writing this for a long time because I’ve been busy perfecting my Rock Band drumming. Nobody warns you about the time-suck danger that the Wii holds for the self-employed.
I only got down to it and wrote these summaries for you when, somewhere between some kick-butt drumming for The Donnas and Bikini Kill, my 5-year-old son came in and told me to turn the music down.
Man, as soon as I graduate, I am so out of here.
Anyway, here’s what happened this week on Copyblogger:
There’s a really cool knife in this post’s photo, so you should without a doubt read the post or that knife may kill you.
(I got a knife like it once, after I saw the first Rambo movie. To date, I have killed no boars or communists with it. But I still like to read about marketing, just like Rambo.)
Be like Nathanbo. Jump off cliffs and make things explode (with profit). You can have it all by reading the full post here.
P.S: Rambo wasn’t in it for profit. He was in it for justice. Just so we’re clear.
I keep trying to blogcrastinate with these wrapups, but I’m apparently doing it wrong. Just last week, I sent Brian my review for the week of December 10, 2008 and he made me go back and do it for the week immediately prior instead. This despite my argument that while people might remember last week’s posts, probably nobody was thinking about the ones that ran on 12/10-14 of ’08.
Luckily, Michelle Russell has five symptoms that will smack blogcrastinators back to December of ’08 and help them get on the right track again.
Pamela Wilson deserves an “Amen, sister!” for this post because it’s so spot on.
See, there are two types of people in the world: copy people and design people. (That’s right — there are literally no other kinds of people in the world.) Copy people think that only the words themselves matter. And design people wear black berets and smoke clove cigarettes. Think about it.
Definitely take a look through Pamela’s list of dumb mistakes to see if you’re making them. Also, definitely get a black beret.
This post is all about the Social Media Success Summit, where Brian and several of his partners in crime will be presenting.
You should check it out because if you go, you’ll basically end up being like Superman if he were on Twitter. He isn’t, but if he were, he’d be all:
using my x-ray vision down at the dept store dressing rooms if you know what I mean LOL
On Friday, James Chartrand threw some gasoline onto the fire of nerd combat by enumerating three blogging debates that are likely to sprain many a typing finger in 2010.
So hike up your suspenders, consult your monster manuals, and weigh in, folks. The web is only going to get more sports-related if we don’t voice our opinions.
(Isn’t it interesting that thanks to the internet, the old maxim has come true? The geeks really have inherited the earth.)
