Link Roundup: Google+, Poetry Out Loud and creating a productive workspace

#MondayMarketing

Takeaways: I found this article to be really interesting. Its premise: most of your fans/followers just want to listen; they don’t necessarily want to engage with you. As a marketer, this doesn’t make me too happy, but as a consumer, it makes total sense. Do I engage with all 308 Facebook pages I like, or reply to all tweets of the 875 people I’m following on Twitter? Nope. I’m interested in hearing if this affects marketers’ strategies when it comes to social media, or if it just helps inform the analytics they get back.

#TuesdayTech

Takeaways: I really had such high hopes for Google+ but was waiting until some sort of critical mass was reached before investing work time in it. (I did find it funny when a multitude of “Google + Best Practices for Nonprofits” articles started popping up.) While I saw some brands use it amazingly well (The Muppets hosted a hangout) and watched friends abandon Facebook and engage more on Google+, I personally just couldn’t get the hang of it. I don’t want to write Google+ off, but it’s not looking good.

#WednesdayWinning

Takeaways: This was the third year that I’ve had the privilege of observing the Montgomery County Poetry Out loud competition, and the third year in the row that our local MoCo champ has advanced to the state competition. Congrats, Kari, and we wish you the best in the state competition this Saturday!

#ThursdayTips

Takeaways: The right workspace is all about the right reminders, tools, distractions and surroundings. If you have all four, you could have an incredibly productive (and creative) day!
