News of the Week: My Thoughts on the Facebook IPO

I’m not following the Facebook IPO offering. I’m also not an expert, or even very knowledgeable about the present world of stock buying and selling. But I know a dumb bet when I see one. Much like Groupon’s IPO, I wouldn’t buy this stock if I did have all the money in the world. Why? Because [...]

Kicking Klout When They’re Down

Of late, several friends have shared stories that are rallying against Klout. I’ve bitched about the website/metrics system since its launch, despite my supposedly “having” some Klout and receiving several “rewards” for said AWESOMENESS. Ha-ha, I have KLOUT, bitch! But it’s all bullshit. It really is. Klout doesn’t know fuck all about what people really [...]

Why I’ve Drunk the Google+ Kool-aid… And Love It (for Writers)

I’m a writer. I like an audience. I also tend to use more than 20 words at a time, like on Twitter, or 75 words on Facebook.

Winning at AntiSocial Media the Steff Way

There’s a social media camp happening over on Vancouver Island, and someone’s first quote was, “Social media isn’t about you.” Really? Ahem. Every person I follow or engage with is because they’re offering something unique to them. If it wasn’t about them, I wouldn’t give a shit. If they’re just spouting links with no personal interjection, [...]

Closet Skeleton Pioneers

A friend of mine laughed at me the other day when I suggested that I was an “oversharer” on the internet. “Hah! You? Oversharing?” Yes, I know. Just a smidge. The thing is, I’m pretty good at toeing a line these days. I don’t tell you what I don’t want you to know. Pretty simple. [...]
