Should I use an editorial calendar? I don’t know why I’m asking you. I am the only one who can effectively answer this question. But half the time I don’t even know what the hell I’m doing. I might say today, YES, I should totes use an editorial calendar.” But then tomorrow I might change my […]

What Old People and/or Conservatives Don’t Know About Facebook

What Old People and/or Conservatives Don’t Know About Facebook … and why they won’t jump to Twitter… I’ve suffered a strange, slow-evolving revelation of late.
