    Sometimes it’s the little things that count… and one of those little things is that now that I’m using Gist in replace of my feed reader, twitter reader and facebook newsfeed, I no longer need to worry nearly as much about “who” I follow on sites like Twitter… and no need to pay any more […]

    Started searching earlier today for a plugin that would display tweets about 4realz articles as comments and found a plugin, BackType Connect, that does all that and some… For example, here’s how a tweet that Linsey made about this post looks: Sweet!

    A mobile solution that works for TechCrunch is good enough for me! If you point your browser on any touch-screen mobile device at http://4realz.net, then this site will now appear in a very mobile-friendly way thanks to the WPtouch plugin.

    I added the PuSHPress plugin that’s suppose to push your new blog posts to sites like Google Reader in real time… and sure enough, I checked Google Reader JUST after publishing my last post, and it was already there! Sweet! I love it when stuff like that works, even if I never can remember exactly […]

    Real estate presentation season is in full swing! After a great event last week with the Leading RE Companies of the world in Las Vegas, I’m off to Chicago later this week to talk about how to make Social Media Work for You, Atlanta next week to talk about how agents can optimize their lead […]

And if that’s not enough, […]

    Stat of the Day from Niki: “Since Move’s founding in 1993, as InfoTouch Corp., it’s amassed losses of $2 billion, making a profit in only two years — $20.9 million in 2006, and $500,000 in 2005, Move said in its annual report.“

    Love a good SWOT analysis and just came across one that Jeremiah Owyang published last month that looks at the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, threats of these four social networks: Google Buzz, Facebook, MySpace and Twitter. I find it most interesting that he would even include MySpace in the equation seeing as how they just don’t […]

    Wish your site ranked higher in google search results? Wish you knew more about how to make this happen? Google just released their own SEO report card that grades their own websites on key factors relevant to ranking well in search results. This report highlights the on-site SEO issues that they look at and gives […]

    Interesting that Seesmic just launched a contact manager (as part of their web app)… The MG Siegler at TechCrunch seems to think they’ve perfected management of Twitter followers, but it’s still missing my favorite feature of Gist: the ability to view updates sorted by how important I’ve ranked people. Nonetheless, it is encouraging to see […]
