Smojoe Speaks Again, New Lenzr Contests, Stabathon is an iPhone Application

Dumpdiggers is something I used to write every week, but now I only update it once a season.  I’ve stopped digging up old dumps in Toronto, and I don’t buy glass bottles or Canadian pottery anymore. I do however still collect knowledge. As Smojoe, I make my passion pay dividends...

April 2010 Smojoe Manual, Lauren O’Nizzle, Karmacake and TwestivalTO

Smojoe didn’t go to WordCamp because it was too far away. I was going to go, and I’d even purchased a $35 ticket earlier in the week, but on that Saturday as I sat reading everyone’s tweets I had critical second thoughts, and so I skipped it.  I stayed home...

Blogstars, Casie Stewart, Raymi the Minx, Sean Ward with Fairlie Agency

On Thursday March 18th 2010,  I journeyed to 156 Augusta Ave and paid cash to see three Toronto bloggers talk about themselves and their blogs.  It was worth $20 cost of admission, and trust me I’d tell you if it wasn’t. Twenty bucks was a bargain actually; for me, listening...

Seattle Dredge on Lenzr, and Dr Yoni Freedhoff on Canada Blog Friends

Yesterday I wrote two blog entries, back to back, two hours each, from 7am til 11am in the morning. Then I spent the rest of the day leisurely bookmarking and promoting the posts in a ritual that has evolved over the years to include Digg, Delicious, StumbleUpon, and Reddit and...

Smojoe at Dermalogica, Personal Brand Camp 2, and Brain Possibilities

Sunday Feb 28th, minutes ago Canada won the gold medal in Men’s Ice Hockey and my Twitter feed erupted with mostly one word tweets. Truly amazing – no other event could so singularly dominate that space except perhaps an alien invasion. I follow two hundred souls @Roberrific and fifty more...

Some Special Media Just Writes Itself

Pro Bloggers know that some subjects are really hard to write about, and it takes mad skills to subtlety broach sensitive topics, especially in 3rd party social networks, blogs and discussion forums where you can’t completely control the reaction.  Now let Smojoe show you two women who make it look...
