There's a nice, short list of innovative ways various marketers have used social media to get results over on the Chief Marketer site: A Dozen Applications for Social Media. It might give you some good ideas.

Freelance Switch offers this Buffy the Vampire Slayer Guide to Freelancing. I've never actually followed Buffy myself, but I feel almost as if I have from all the pop-culture references that come my way.

Here's what the NY State Legislature has brought us:
Whether they contributed to this mess or just let it happen on their watch, they aren't doing their job. Let's send a message to politicians everywhere: politics as usual will end your career. Pledge not to vote for any candidate who was a NY State Senator in June 2009, for any future office, ever again.

I couldn't agree more with this article in Chief Marketer on How to Earn Customer Loyalty. It's the kind of thing we all know, but can stand to be reminded of now and then.
Now that I think of it, isn't it astonishing how much bad customer service exists out there, considering that all of the people involved must certainly also be customers themselves in other contexts?

As of now, there are 500 quotations in my "Quote of the Day" compilation. Woo-hoo! They are an assortment of wise and funny words related to writing, marketing, websites, and life in general. I hope you enjoy them.

I just realized that there are actually two of my photos in the featured member photo on My.Nature.org, which is part of The Nature Conservancy's website. One is of my son on the beach at Coney Island (which generated one of the nicest comments I've ever seen!), and the other of my husband and another dad walking at Clarence Fahnestock State Park. They were promoting a theme of "Spring Outdoors," so I submitted a few shots of nature with actual people in them. Mine are the 4th and 5th images if you scroll down.

I spotted this blog item today, on what I suppose is a competitive site, but it's either link the competition or plagiarize, so link it is:
"Stay Home, Make Money
"No one is Learning More.
"Here is a prime example of no proofreading in action."

Another of my photos was featured in the Sierra Club's "Daily Ray of Hope" email today. This is my third one to have been selected—not bad, considering there are over 900 contributors and more than 10,000 pictures in the Flickr pool.

I took this on a "hike" with my sons' Cub Scout pack on February 20, in Prospect Park. (Near the small bridge over the small waterfall at the West end of the water by the Audubon Center.)
Used with this lovely quote:
Maybe I should go submit some quotations, too.
Quote of the Day
America, after all, was built by taking on high-risk propositions. We can identify risks. We can control for some of them. But we cannot eliminate risk in our lives—not if we want to succeed as a nation.
