Yesterday we did another Pinbuster Project. If you are new to our blog, this is where we pick a ‘simple’ DIY project from Pinterest and see if it really is as easy as it seems. We found our craft on this website and the outcome was wonderful. It took everyone less than 5 minutes each to complete their new glass. We even found reusable straws that are temperature sensitive and change colors when your drink is cold. It truly is the little things in life that make us happy. Another bonus: the Ball® Mason jars we used hold a total >>

Do you remember card catalogs? You know, those old wooden cabinets with little drawers containing individual cards organizing all the resources of a library? I remember learning about them in my first library experience in elementary school. The librarian pulled out a yellow card, known as a card index, containing numbers and words and showed how each item on the card would help me locate an individual book on the vast shelves of the library. Searching for a book was almost like searching for clues to a mystery or a treasure hunt. With the dawn of the personalized computer and >>

This might sound like an unorganized way to approach your marketing efforts but for people like Scott Wise, Scotty’s Brewhouse owner and social media guru, it’s a common practice. Obviously, it’s not going to be as easy and simple as it sounds. Recently at the Indiana Innovation Awards kick-off event, I was privileged to be able to sit and listen to one of Indiana’s own discuss innovation and how it doesn’t necessarily pertain to new gadgets and gizmos. Wise showed how he transformed a locally-owned restaurant/bar into a “must visit” in Indiana using social media platforms. Innovation can be defined >>

I am a voracious consumer of the written word. I frequent many news outlets, keep a keen eye on my twitter feed and enjoy a robust discussion on current events. After talking with a peer, he suggested I checkout www.netvibes.com and boy was I impressed. I’m trying to step-up my blog reading (and writing, but that’s for another post) and this website will definitely help my cause. Netvibes provides a basic (free) or premium service for professional monitoring and analytics. You create a personal dashboard and load up on the content you want to monitor.
