5 Plugins Every WordPress Blog Should Have

Plugins are add-ons that give WordPress (self-hosted, not .com) sites extra functionality. They’re basically apps for your sites, and whatever you want, there’s a plugin for that. But just because you can use plugins for whatever doesn’t mean you should. Every plugin you add to your website is one more thing that load every time someone […]

How Pinterest Brought Me Over 100,000 Pageviews in the Last 3 Months

Pinterest is an online visual site where you can “pin” pictures (and videos) while following other folks and re-pinning their stuff. I joined at the end of 2011 and quickly became addicted to it. I e’em wrote a blogpost in January 2012 on how I’m obsessed with Pinterest and board creating. Back then, I only had […]

Bill Gates Isn’t Giving You Money for Sharing A Facebook Picture

There’s a picture that has been shared into my Facebook newsfeeds and each time I see it, I *facepalm* and wonder where common sense went. It clearly took a vacation and said “I’m on a break” from society at large. This OBVIOUSLY photoshopped picture of Bill Gates holding up a sign promising everyone $5,000 if […]

Don’t Leave Us, Google Reader! *Wall Slides*

I read A LOT of blogs and news sites everyday to laugh, learn and stay in the loop. But I don’t visit every single one, because they’ll mean I’d need to visit 89 of them. I just subscribe to them and they come to my Google Reader. Some of you are all “what’s Google Reader?” […]

There’s a New Pope and the Internet Goes Nuts

Today, white smoke came out the Vatican chimney, telling us that they picked a new Pope. I’m not Catholic but I still wanted to know who they picked, and I can’t even tell you a good reason why. Within minutes, Twitter blessed me with this graphic: Because Grumpy Cat is a cat for the people. […]

10 Lessons Celebrities Need to Learn About Twitter

The other night, I got into it with a celebrity on Twitter over a question I asked. I won’t get into details because it really went from 0-60 and it was disappointing and made me become less of a fan of someone whose work I really respected and really liked. What I came away with […]

Instagram’s New Terms of Service is a FAIL

I joined Instagram September of 2011 just so I could hold down the Luvvie username. Between then and July 2012, I had uploaded just 2 pictures, and one of them was of my socks in the “rise” filter. And then July happened and I went to LA and decided to start Instagramming more so I logged on and saw […]

Branding is Important And That’s Why I’m Having a Webinar

The word “brand” seems like one of those overused buzz words as everyone talks about it and uses it (often wrongly). But don’t get it twisted.
