Like a toddler teaching astrophysics, I’m probably the last person to give tech advice.
But I won’t let that stop me.
For any bloggers not yet savvy about pingbacks and Twitter mentions, here are two tips I’d like to share that will make things easier for your followers:
My mom’s cat. She loves…er…tolerates me.
It’s an honor to be mentioned in someone else’s blog post, and it’s a great way to build blogging connections. But unless our blog gets a notification, we won’t be aware we were mentioned unless we stumble upon the post. And since most of us can’t read every post of every blogger we follow, we risk not seeing the mention at all.

This is a great tutorial! I never knew how to get the picture there for Stumble Upon! Thank you!
Last night I ran across a Blog that had a StumbleUpon button on their Blog so that people could share their work if that wanted to do so.

Twitter just officially launched its “retweet with comment” feature, which it began testing last summer.
“Retweet with comment” allows users to embed a tweet in their own tweets, which lets them get around Twitter’s 140-character limit when they write their own commentary. The feature is now available on Twitter’s site and iPhone app and will be available on its Android app soon.

Twitter previously let users embed quoted tweets by cutting-and-pasting its URL, but “retweet and comment” lets you do that by just pressing a button. The feature’s arrival has been heralded with much (somewhat ironic) rejoicing by Twitter users.

People are on the Internet for one of two reasons: Either to solve a problem, or be entertained. Are you struggling to create daily numerous engaging “posts” on your Social Media sites? Then you are not the only one on the search of great content. We all want to stand out from our “competition”. On the other hand, creating content for Social Media should not end up in stress. In a former post I explained that blogs do not necessarily need to consist of written content, but also may be among others, videos, images, curated content, re-posts etc. The same is true for Social Media content.
