After having several people ask me about how I spread my posts to Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn throughout the day, I decided to create a video explaining how I use Buffer, a tool that makes posting to social media on a regular basis super easy. The video is below. Please watch and comment. If you find it helpful, please share the video as well!

Thanks for watching! You can sign up for Buffer and get an extra space in your Buffer by visiting http://bufferapp.com/r/4ca49 (disclosure: I will get an extra space as well when you use that link). The Buffer for Chrome extension mentioned in the video, which enables Twitter and Google Reader posting to Buffer is available at https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/noojglkidnpfjbincgijbaiedldjfbhh.

Taking a Break

By Nate LaClaire —  April 16, 2010 — 3 Comments

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about how I spend my time. It seems that I find myself wasting a lot of time on Facebook or in front of the TV (or both simultaneously) or doing other things that drain me emotionally, physically, and spiritually. After reading and contemplating a blog post by Tony Steward, I’ve decided to follow the example of Michael Hyatt and combine it with a suggestion from my good friend Joanna Hoyt. Consequently, I’m observing TV Turnoff Week (aka Digital Detox Week), April 19-25, 2010, by turning off the TV, staying away from Internet video, and taking a break from social media, including Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, and other social sites/tools. Since my work involves social media, I will have to monitor Facebook, Twitter, and some other social media sites for business purposes, but will use them for absolutely nothing personal and will limit my time on them as much as possible. I’m also observing a blog silence during the week, but that won’t impact my life much because of the (lack of) frequency with which I generally post to my blog.

I’m looking forward to the break and am contemplating how my life will change after April 25.

Would you like to join me? Comment below and let us know what you’re giving up as part of your digital detox from April 19 to 25.

See you on the other end!

I can’t find any information regarding when they did it, but Google has released a service called Google Mars. This new service allows visitors to travel the surface of Mars using the familiar Google Maps interface. Talk about a neat tool!

Google acquires Measure Map

Google announced on Tuesday that it has acquired Measure Map. Measure Map is a neat statistics tool for blogs. It’s exciting news – I am sure that Measure Map will be good for Google and that Google will be good for Measure Map. Personally, I’m still waiting for an invitation to Google Analytics.
