Germany Tour



I'm out in Germany doing a short tour right now. Part of my presentation is about social marketing and 5 years ago I would've talked all about blogs but now I don't even mention them. Blogs are so out.



Blogging was a great technology to use to start and faciliate conversations five or six years ago but now Facebook and Twitter have kicked its butt for so many reasons - Read my blogging is dead article if you care to know more.

So if you want to keep up with me you'll need to join me on Facebook or Twitter or both b/c I don't plan to blog anymore. :)


I started online journaling on my forum way back in 2003 and you can see my first posts here.
Then moved to my Xanga blog
Then moved to my blogger blog
...and now Facebook!

Amanda Pair - awesome!



Our latest featured site on ShowitLoves.com is Amanda Pair and I love her site for sooooo many reasons! First of all it's great because it's about her! ...all the way down to the itty bitty details like the pre-loaders! Only Showit allows you to customize and control - EVERYTHING!!!

She partnered up with one of Showit's Authorized Designers - Spilled Milk Designs - to really trick it out!

Another thing you should see is that her blog header is also made in Showit and it matches her website brilliantly!

Another cool website and blog!

Here is a phenominal example of how to use Showit to create a very cool and unique website as well as a custom blog. I think it's crazy how much people have been paying for "custom" blog headers when you can now make them completely for free using Showit.


Nate and Brittany from The Shot Shot used Showit to create a website with some punch! Using the timing features they brought in text with sweet music that gets you excited to click on another button! Just like their website claims - "You cannot find another experience like ours anywhere!" - Click here and check it out!



and they didn't stop with a website! They used Showit to create a very cool custom blog! They used Showit's Twitter widget to automatically display posts from four twitter accounts and create a custom blog header that's all their own!

Photographer to Watch


Gail Werner. I found her because she started using Showit to build her website and I was just blown away with the site she created and even more amazed with the content on it.

I view websites as a package and the importance of making it "YOUnique" to YOU is vitally important. The old days of everyone having the same website are over and if you're looking for a great examply of someone who put the whole package together with a great design, Beautiful pictures, and a lovely "spunky" personality that shines through it all Gail Werner is it.

These shoes were made for Dancin!

A few weeks ago Christianne took me to a super fun wedding out in Houston and the photographers there did an INCREDIBLE job! Chip Gillespie from Studio 563 knocked it outta the park with these pics and he even snagged a couple of Christianne and I dancing. :)



Click here to see more pictures from the wedding.

Checkout our shoes! I love them!

I told her that I wanted to wear sneakers and she was not feeling it because she thought I was gonna wear nike running shoes or something and I was like no - no - no just trust me and so we picked out a pair of true religion kicks to go with my suit. It was pretty funny because I rode with her dad on the way to the wedding and he caught a glimpse of my shoes and then kept peeking over as we were driving probably wondering what on earth I was wearing and I was trying to hide them way under the dash so he wouldn't see them. lol

Anyway. We had a great time!
