My Social Stance: I won’t do that!

I get contacted about Social Media jobs a lot. I get contacted about Web Analytics jobs even more. Become a Web Analyst if you're struggling for employment, there are loads of jobs in that. Anyway, the Social Media roles; I tend to find that I'm having to explain how I feel about Social over and over because what each company wants from the [...]

Twitter Chat with Sainsbury’s

I'm converted! Grocery shopping is an unnecessary evil of the modern world and I've become increasingly infuriated with Asda's poor fruit and veg quality (mouldy lemons, peppers that looks like a spider has been living inside them, squishy spinach) and I don't have a local Tesco, so I've actually become quite fond of Sainsbury's and this unexpected Twitter exchanged only reaffirmed my new [...]

Social Media Complaints – When should you worry?

As a Digital Marketer, I dream of the day when something I do goes viral. Though some times things go viral for the wrong reasons and you have a Social Media crisis on your hands - eek! It'll become pretty evident when you need to start worrying about Social Media issues, this post is about when not to worry. You have had one [...]

I changed my Twitter handle to JoDtw

It's been a busy day for me on the blog today. I have over 140 unfinished blog posts that I've been trying to complete, plus loads more ideas and I've also been tinkering with the design a bit (again). But I just wanted to let you know, in case you follow me on Twitter, that my handle has changed from @Pose to @JoDtw. [...]

The Twitter Full Stop / Period – who knew?

Have you heard about the Twitter full stop or period (dependent on where you live) that can alter who sees your reply tweets? Well if you haven't, you're not alone. I claim to have an interest in Social Media and I only found out about it last week. What am I on about? There appear to be a piece of functionality in Twitter [...]

The Social Salem Media Witch Trials

Well, I'm not going to get many SEO points for that title but let's get going. Recently (November) I visited Salem, MA (Massachusetts) as part of my epic American tour for my 30th birthday (Note to self, I really need to change the photo on this site as that is definitely not 30 year old me on the right there). We probably all [...]

Amy’s Baking Company: Social Media Lessons You Can Learn

If you're in to Social Media, you'll have struggled to avoid discovering the Social Media meltdown that was Amy's Baking Company a few weeks ago, but if you're not busying yourself with Social Media, as often as I do, then here's roughly what happened. The online crisis seemed to build after Amy's Baking Company appeared on Gordon Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmare's in America and [...]

Ding Dong the Witch is Dead looks set for UK Number 1

Margaret Thatcher died. She was old, which I hear significantly increases your chance of death. She was 87, which is a good age. She had outlived her husband and was living in the Ritz hotel in London. I suppose that’s what people with money do instead of going in to a care home, but I find this rather sad. As a direct impact [...]

LookFantastic.com and the Terrible Customer Service

OK, let's start with my experience. After searching high and low for a discount code to order some Urban Decay cosmetics, I discovered that most sites with codes didn't allow you to use them on certain brands, Urban Decay being one of them. So, I just plumped for Look Fantastic. I've never had a problem with them before, though I haven't used them [...]

Calling more April Fools

I'm calling these as April Fools too... Web licence to be compulsory for ALL internet users I give this a 2 out of 5. It's not massively funny and is more likely to scare the gullible among us more than it will amuse.   I don't know where this story orginated by I found it on Mashable Twitter Now Costs $5 Per Month — If [...]
