Friday Fun Link – Best Social Media Management & Analysis Tools

I don’t do a huge amount of this on my own blog/FB/Twitter/etc. but still useful to know what tools are out there for managing all aspects of your online presence – tracking mentions, controlling content, your social media reach and so on.

Friday Fun Link – What Screams Upper Middle Class?

[Edit: This post started as a way for me to share what I thought was an interesting Reddit post.  But then I had the idea to use it to talk about whether I found it interesting was because I identified – and was slightly embarrassed by – many of the points it raised. Re-reading this […]

Friday Fun Link – Hot Ones “Hot Sauce Challenge”

I stumbled across this YouTube series and am completely hooked. The conceit is that a hot sauce company challenges various “B” level celebrities to eat wings with a variety of ever-increasing hot sauces on them while also conducting an interview.

Friday Fun Link – (Over The) Moon Palace, Cancun

Shea, the kids and I are planning to go on a winter holiday with my parents next February. My folks and I went in to talk to the CAA Travel Agent earlier this week (my thought: “People still use travel agents?”  My parents’ thought: “You book all your travel online?”) 😉 Going in, we had […]

Friday Fun Link – The Definitive Ranking of Every Tragically Hip Song

Lots to argue with here but points for even trying to make this list (the author strikes on an interesting conceit to make it work, grouping songs thematically to count them down.)
