Things discussed at #portsbkfstclub this week included:

  • Of course, we talked more about Mailbox App—@Zumbaholic85 imported her 3500+ Archive and was down to 900 at the start of breakfast club. And then down to 700-ish by the END of bkfstclub!
  • Speaking of email, @laughtercrystal wondered why the hell it wasn’t super easy to simply schedule an email to be sent at a later time/date. @zumbaholic85 found Right Inbox, which does exactly that (anyone out there tried that yet? Have other email schedulers to recommend?).
  • #portsbkfstclub turned into #portscookieclub—@angiemlombard had Girl Scout Cookies for those who ordered them! Their cookie magnetism successfully pulled @walterelly from Madbury allllll the way to The Works!
  • With @laughtercrystal’s upcoming trip to Hawai’i, we discussed battery life quite a bit. She considered resigning herself to an unplugged vacation, but @zumbaholic85handed over her Mophie, so now everyone will just have to deal with all the beach pics, and also the Foursquare leaderboard is going to be p0wned! #dropsthemic
  • Discussed mic-dropping #dropsthemic (Also this presidential greatness: Obama slow jams the news, drops mic.)
  • Songza/Rdio/Spotify (@dougridley reminds us of the greatness of Songza, your music concierge; @laughtercrystal prefers Rdio to other music services like Spotify)
  • How does one choose what books to pack when going on vacation? How would you anticipate which reading MOOD you’ll be in? There should be a book concierge service! (Get on that, @missliberty!)
  • @thesleepyvegan even woke up and joined us briefly!

Nice big crowd this morning for #portsbkfstclub!

Here are some things we discussed:

@derbsworld announced the news that @melsieburger is the new Overlord (President) of Seacoast Social Media! Yay! We decided to hum Hail to the Chief for her, but quickly thought better and went with The Imperial March. (Cuz #starwarsrules, right Cian?)

Mailbox app (no #portsbkfstclub-ers are officially in yet, but we’re all very excited! @d0nkeyBOB tells us great things about it!) @walterelly was convinced to get in line upon hearing about the “resend to me later today/tomorrow/this weekend” feature.

—Did you know that Feb 13th is “ValenSWINE’s Day”? (If you did know, we have more questions to ask you…) Thanks to @dougridley for that tidbit. It was also decided that Gilley’s was the restaurant of choice for Portsmouth’s Valenswine’s-ers.

@carleric is teaching a comprehensive WordPress class this Saturday! It’s at Great Bay Community College in Portsmouth, and you can sign up HERE: http://wp-mentor.com/ Carl is also involved with @alpha_loft‘s WordPress Web Dev Meetup group!

@walterelly got this shot of @monte_bohanan, @melsieburger, and @laughtercrystal doing a @dougridley pose!

—@molly_taaffe told us about this cool Mental Floss post about the 11-yr-old girl who named Pluto. We were glad she never knew about it’s being downgraded from planet status… It’ll always be a planet to her. And for some of us.

—How To Conjugate Your Apps! @monte_bohanan shared a cool way to arrange your iPhone/iPad apps—conjugation! He mentioned a blog post (this one?) that suggested you group apps by the verb of what you do with that app. For example, “Photograph,” “Listen,” “Watch,” “Share,” etc..

@IdeaGreenhousNH tweeted this genius and caused many LOLs and a few RTs… later we found out it was the marketing genius of a toddler! We can all learn a little something from this, I think.

—In other @SeacoastSocial news, @bouchermedia posted this great #vineapp video last night of the SSM leadership advisory board panel group directing you to seacoastsocial.org!

@ashley_ridley and @dougridley shared THIS amazing (and oh, so simple!) hack to take panoramic shots on your iPhone from left to right WIHTOUT turning your phone upside down! Ashley already knew about it when Doug discovered it, for the record.

Thanks, @ashley_ridley & @dougridley!

@monte_bohanan told us about Eric Reuter‘s cool stereoscopic photo posts on Facebook (please be our friend, Eric, so we can see them, too!) that made most of us make very silly faces trying to cross our eyes to see it properly!

@derbsworld always wondered why the AppleTV isn’t called iTV. We all thought this was a great question. @Monte_Bohanan knew the answer: iTV is a station in England!

Post-bkfstclub, @Monte_Bohanan reminded us also of THIS cool upcoming event!:

Innovation & Leadership Forum: Creating a Healthy Work Culture, featuring our pals at Mad*Pow at The Music Hall Loft!

See you all next week!

P.S. If you would be interested in signing up for email notifications about new recap posts, Tuesday afternoon #ReminderBeetle reminders, etc., let me know in the comments! I am in the process of setting up an email listing.

Google Author Rank

Brush up on your Google Author Rank expertise, and let’s discuss these questions in a recent @dougridley blog post:

Trying to understand some specific questions about Google Author Rank…

  1. When it comes to working with a company, how have you approached having individual authors (content team) vs. one author (say the owner)?

  2. What happens when a company works at building multiple author rankings and then those individuals leave the company? Does the company’s content lose any ranking? When the company starts with new authors do those authors get some sort of boost from being associated with the other established authors?

  3. Is it better to give the author rank to the owner (ensuring that the authorship rank never leaves), and give the byline that appears on the website to the writer? But what happens if the individual writers are more active on Google+?

  4. What about Author Rank and maiden names? If an author marries and changes her name, does the author and website loose the Author Rank if the website updates the appropriate rel tags?

Possible reading in prep.:

Other helpful Author Rank reading? Please share in the comments!

 

See you Wednesday at 6:48am!
