Social Media – Join Me

In the right sidebar is the short list of my social sites, below is the long list…

Klout.com | As a jack-of-all-trades I’m only ever going to rank so high. I could not add multiple accounts of the same service, so it is limiting in that sense.

43 Places | I set an account up back in 2006 and did very little with it. I had intended to bookmark nearby locations related to NewsOverCoffee, but never went down that path.

Blogger.com | This is the longtime home to my community news site, NewsOverCoffee, which I stopped posting to on 12/31/11 . My plan is to give it to the local library as a chronicle of the past five years.

Chess.com | I enjoy the game and try to keep a few going, but don’t expect more than a move or two a day tops. I previously used Redhotpawn, Gameknot, and FreeChess.org.

Delicious | I was an early user of Delicious and stopped using the site in 2009, about when I shifted to using Google Reader.

Delicious | I also have a NewsOverCoffee account where content is archived on Delicious via Posterous.

Facebook | Mostly personal, plus my Music contacts use pages to promote themselves and my Motorsports contacts are here as a Rolodex.

Flickr | Didn’t ever get too engage in this site, I used it for a while, but nothing recently.

FriendFeed | I set up an account and feed content to it via Posterous for NewsOverCoffee, but never got too engaged in this site. Despite that I do have a few subscribers.

Goodreads | I’ve found this site to be very good to organize what I want to read, to read reviews on books by others, and to post my own reviews.

Google + | Lots of potential for a range of uses, but right now I mostly see my Web based contacts on this site. Is nice to have all my Google services beginning to be brought under one roof/navigation.

Google Reader | This product has social components as you can star and share items. I use it to manage content related to Web sites and eMarketing. I Tweet the content I find to be most beneficial.

LinkedIn | No surprise here, mostly business contacts with a few personal, music, and motorsports mixed in.

Plinky | I was very interested in doing more with this site. It provides writing prompts to spark creativity.

Posterous | I use this service to send by email content for NewsOverCoffee.  The email goes to Posterous, which posts the content, and then forwards it to FriendFeed, Blogger, and Twitter for distribution.

Slideshare | I’ve only used this a few times, but very good site for sharing presentations. I have two related to small business and one for the Center for the Arts.

Squidoo | I tried using this site to create some how-to’s on placeblogging related to NewsOverCoffee, but never got too engaged and after a few posts stopped using it.

Tumblr | New one for me. I had heard a lot about it and decided to try it. This site seems well suited promote the Nazareth Center for the Arts and the performers who play there.

Twitter – Corey Lewis Racing | We created this account to write about Corey’s progress in becoming an open-wheel race car driver. He maintains his own personal account and we’ve done little with this recently.

Twitter – NewsOverCoffee | This account reposts my content for NewsOverCoffee, which is my community news Web site.

Twitter – Personal | On this account I post content related to the web, metrics, online marketing, etc. Posts I make on WordPress are sent to this account. I also post about motorsports particularly open-wheel with some endurance racing.

Upcoming.org | I set this account up in 2005 and used it to create a community calendar for NewsOverCoffee. It was since purchased by Yahoo. I haven’t used it in recent years.

Vimeo | I set this account up to post videos related to the Nazareth Center for the Arts.

WordPress | I have this blog, plus one that is a resume, and I created one for Corey Lewis Racing.

YouTube | I only posted a few videos for Corey Lewis Racing and one for Brown Daub Chevy. Mostly I’ve used Vimeo.
