Semi-hypothetically speaking in this scenario but in general for real life things, if you are a guest blogger submitting articles in to our company blog and you include a picture, you need to tell me where you got that photo from and if you have permission to use it before I can publish it.
Sir. SIR. A Google search is not permission to use said photo! It’s okay if you didn’t take the picture either because I have a bountiful folder filled with purchased stock photos to use. I don’t mind digging through the folder for one either. Just don’t attach photos with no description or a very flimsy mention included as to where you found them. Cause I won’t be using them in that case. Sound good? Great.
One of our guest bloggers just submitted in a post with an author’s byline that included a shout-out to watching Paula Deen videos which made me not only smile but also reflect back on my favorite Paula moment ever, the heart attack breakfast sandwich classic.
Publish a blog post about the conference before the event, 500 word minimum, link to conference page with approved anchor text*, tweet out the post

Tweet up a storm at the conference with the hashtag #socialfresh
Publish a blog post about at least one of the conference sessions after the event, 500 word minimum, link to conference page (your choice of anchor text), tweet out the post (must be completed by April 25th at 2pm ET)
PS. Your CEO topic idea is awesome and works perfect for this requirement.
I CAN DO ALL OF THIS AND THANKS FOR THE KUDOS ON MY IDEA (BOLDED) BUT I’M STILL SO CONFUSED YOU GUYS. Does this mean this event is still free once I obtain my press pass? Will my boss be down with me going and/or able to spot me on my hotel room and airfare? (The hotel does a discount for the event.) It IS being billed as “the social media conference you’ve always hoped for” after all and the speaker list/venue is flawless. And I would like to go travel and do out of state things again because I’ve been trying to pay off debt which blows because I’ve been very Rapunzel locked up in her castle lately and just want to get out of the damn office and onto a plane for a few days so I can feel like I’m living life again.
Ahem. I’ll take all these things up tomorrow at work.
Photo images from the popular photo sharing service went dark Sunday on Twitter, a decision, Twitter says, that was made by Instagram, which was acquired earlier in the year for $1 billion by Facebook. “Instagram has disabled photo integration with Twitter,” the micro-blogging site wrote in a status update. “As a result, photos are no longer appearing in Tweets or user photo galleries.”
Cue social media manager head explosion. I’d Instagram it for you, but… y’know.
Or why you should just stick to “manager” or “associate” or “director” for everything ever.
You cannot, I repeat, you cannot, be an expert in a field this recently created that evolves this fast and covers the sheer amount of ground that it does. Also, the further it keeps evolving, the less proud you would be on having expertise on gradually obsolete sites from our radar like MySpace. (It’s not coming back people, it’s not.)
Because nothing says “take this career choice seriously” than the mental image of a guy running around all in black with a sword.
3) Maven/Gal About Town/Cutie
Oh I get it. “Media Maven” has a nice rhythm to it. And “SM Gal About Town” is perky in an updated Carrie Bradshaw sense. But can I just take this moment to say… don’t. Please don’t. To either of these terms. I added “Cutie” for shits and giggs but I guarantee you somebody out there probably does refer to themselves as such.
For the Pinterest set. Look at you. You took an image that you (probably) don’t own one iota of copyright to and “repinned” it virtually. And included that title on your business card which is the last place something like that should ever be. In the words of Sassy Gay Friend, look at your life, look at your choices.
I’m sure everyone has been to that magical place at work where they are so busy from the moment they walk in that they barely have time to go to the bathroom and the emails keep pouring in and suddenly it’s almost 10 AM and the dent made in the to-do list is barely noticeable and you probably don’t even have the time to write this note and include a gif but damnit you gotta because it’s the Muppets and how can you not make time for Kermit the frog?
I was going to sleep in a little more this morning, but at 4:53 AM told myself, “that’s loser talk, get up” so I got up, dressed, and bought a copy of the USA Today with me and my Twitter handle printed on page 13A of the news section. Yay for awesome news features!
Between this, my Ellen tickets finally arriving, the invite to LA Fashion Weekend, and my boots coming in the mail tomorrow, I’d say this week is off to a pretty amazing start!
