Splendid Sundays Volume 7Sunday, August 23, 2009
A handful of splendid finds and interesting tidbits from around the world wide web:
*I adore biographies - real stories of real people - and am often creatively inspired by artists outside of the wedding industry. I found this interview with fashion photographer Tim Walker fascinating.
*Laura Novak wrote a great post this week on her Strategy Avenue blog entitled, Watch Who You Follow. With all the pluses of social media, one of the downfalls is that it allows people to brazenly claim they are something they are not. Be careful to really evaluate the claims a business, marketing or social media "consultant" makes before hiring them to help you grow your company. Many people are following emperors who simply have no clothes.
*Interested in releasing a simple iPhone app for your business, but it's not complex enough to warrant an $800 per hour developer? Check out Swebapps, an easy - and relatively affordable - way to create an iPhone app.
*If you're looking for an easy way to sort your blogs and manage your blog reading but don't currently use Google reader and aren't familiar with RSS, Jenna Cole wrote a great post on How to RSS for Elizabeth Anne Designs Living.
*A judge recently ordered Google to reveal the identity of an anonymous blogger because they has posted content on their blog that was deemed as slanderous to another person. Libel and slander laws apply to blogs and online content. Be careful what you write in a blog post, on Twitter, Facebook or any other form of social media. You can't say whatever you want just because you feel like it.
Do you have any splendid finds to share?
