Being Pretty Isn’t Enough For Social Media Marketing

Being Pretty Isn’t Enough For Social Media Marketing

I always tell clients that it is no longer enough to be beautiful when it comes to marketing online. The Internet has become more like an Oscar after-party than it is like the airport Ramada. Online, you’re never the lone beauty in the hotel lounge. Online, you’re surrounded by equal or greater beauties. What’s more, the most successful online social media barflies are aggressive in addition to gorgeous. Too many companies that have invested vast resources in social have Pretty Boy/Girl Syndrome. A symptom of this disease is an expectation that others will go out of their way to pursue you.

Being a Young Cadet

More discovered autobiographical writing that I didn't fictionalize at all back in 2005 when I was writing Hill Mole. All about being a JROTC Ranger in Ranger Club at Saint Louis School in Honolulu, Hawaii, where I grew up. This is all true.

If I Were The Devil by Paul Harvey

If I Were The Devil by Paul Harvey

I have never heard this before and I am a huge fan of classic radio and voices like Paul Harvey's and I wasn't aware of this. It's either amazingly prescient or this entire moral panic thing is cyclical and happens in almost exactly the same way every single time throughout the history of civilization. Amen.
