One By One Media Gets A New Look

Do you remember when you were a kid and you got those brand new pair of tennis shoes?  I remember when I got my first pair of Chuck Taylor Converse.  They were not too unlike the ones pictured here, but mine were white.  I remember so vividly the fact that I thought I could run much faster and jump much higher with those brand new shoes.  I know now it was probably psychological, except for the fact that they didn’t have duct tape holding the toe part of the shoe on my foot.  They were also quite a bit different than getting those hand-me-down shoes, but I digress.

Those of you that have been following along here over the last 5 years know that from time to time we tend to make some sweeping changes to our look and feel of the web site and blog (terms I believe are synonymous).  This is the latest look and feel that we have made and I believe I can now blog better, write better, speak better and everything else has been taken up a notch.  Like that kid that could run faster and jump higher, I feel invigorated.  We will continue to always be testing new widgets and plugins and every tool out there, but for now it is clean and tidy here and I love it that way.

I have Debbie Lawrence of Lagniappe Marketing to thank for the new look and feel.  She is amazing and allowed me to participate in what she calls the “Sausage Making” process of watching the new design come together.  We are using Brian Gardner’s template and I recommend all of his work as he has some great themes to work with and to make your own designs.  In fact, Debbie was the designer and coder and all-around sausage making queen for the site over at the Modern Media Man Summit which is another of my latest projects.  That site is also a Studio Press theme.  Thank you Debbie!

I expect things to pick up here a little since I have this new running faster and jumping higher ability.  Take a look around and tell us your thoughts.

You can also see that we have added to the home page our sites at Bloggers For Hire and at Social Mediasphere TV.  We will be picking up the pace there as well so feel free to grab those feeds too.

Is Your Business Creating “Wow” Moments?

I just came from a meeting where I was subject to a few “WOW” moments.  There are a few times in my business where I get to see some cool technologies that revolutionize the way we communicate, or listen, or perhaps the way we drink our coffee.  All of it is related to entrepreneurs that […]

Preaching From The Social Media Pulpit

I have been preaching about blogging for a long time.  I have been an evangelist and telling companies that they had to blog more they had to have a place for people to “join the conversation” and making it possible for them to connect with their customers.  Like some of the preachers of the past, […]

Why Robert Scoble Is A Better Blogger Than Me

Social Media and the Child of Television

I have always been a child of television.  I was born at the height of when television broke on to the scene as the next big thing, and I was doused with it’s essence from day one.  To that end I have some things that are a part of my DNA I believe that makes […]

Hosted Blogging Applications; Another Example Why They Are Not For Me

I am constantly finding reasons why I am not a proponent of hosting blogging plans.

In a recent article by […]

Something Smells Phishy – The Twitter Hacker

I was multitasking when it happened. When I mention the idea of multitasking, I mean serious business. I was once looked at by my old boss as someone that could teach ADD to a rock. I was looking over my emails for the day and saw I had an inordinate amount of Twitter followers. I […]
