Once again, the pure act of my version of curation pays off with new sites, new terms, and new acronyms…
I learned lots from this post by Michal Pecánek.
From the ‘Yes, I am and probably always will be a newbie’ department: Stuff I didn’t know or hadn’t thought of–newsjacking, featured snippets, more alternatives to Google, Quora marketing, brand codes, and HARO (‘Help a reporter out’) requests.
And now, time for book recommendations…or shameless commercialism…or both. Okay, there are definitely book recommendations…
These seven books are go-to sources of inspiration and valued experience. These are affiliate links which, if you use to preview and buy the product, won’t raise the product’s price and will earn me a commission. At that point, I’ll be that much closer to buying that unclaimed island in the Caribbean. Please don’t ask for the island’s coordinates. It is mine and you can’t have it. ;->
