Descriptive Profile Links

After reading an article from Duct Tape marketing, I have updated the display of my web links on LinkedIn. Instead of the default "my Website" that LinkedIn provides - I chose OTHER to place my own descriptive titles "Boot-Up now of Northern NJ". Instead of "My Blog", the "other" category lets me enter it as "Boot-Up now Technical Blog". It's interesting to note that when I search google on my name or "beverly margolies bootup now", LINKedIN, Naymz, Twitter & this Blog come up at the top of my search results list. My website comes later!

The purpose of descriptive web link titles is to enhance search engine optimization for your site. Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, Google Profile, and Mixx are also mentioned in the article.

Creative Technology at work

I thought it was time I create a Logo for Boot-up now. So after watching some tutorials and lots of trial and error I created my first pass at a logo, using Adobe Illustrator CS4. I like the latest Blob Paintbrush.

which should I use? mulitple methods ....

Now that I have Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, Blogger, Youtube and a website .... I wonder what method is best to share my thoughts? If I share my thoughts on this blog, do I need to also update my Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook status? What would you do?

Find out what others think ....

I've discovered a website offering advice and reviews on the latest gadgets and tech products for the home user

I never can tell if I will like a new cell phone until I've used it for a few days. I hate the fact that my Motorola cell phone is inconsistent. When someone calls I put them on speaker by pressing the topmost right-hand button. However, if I hit that button too soon it sends a busy signal! - because the answer button is also the busy button. How confusing is that!
Sites like techtalkforfamilies could help people like me see the pros and cons that you cannot see by looking at the product in the store.

Why do strangers want to follow me?

I joined Twitter to find out what all the fuss was about. I am suspicious of my newfound popularity. I'm getting requests from all over the world - requesting to follow me. Well, Twitter certainly makes it possible for someone in London to follow someone in NY. How do they find me? Who should I follow? I already use Facebook and LinkedIn. Should I follow my LinkedIn contacts on Twitter or is that redundant? Should I follow my followers?
