What an exciting month this has been! It caps off the 1st year of this blog’s existance– woo hoo! It’s been a great year, and I am astounded at where I’m at today looking back at where I was when the blog began. I really have to thank my readers for making all the effort worth it. If it weren’t for your kind words, fruitful discussions, and your generous sharing of content, I would not be where I’m at today.
In the video above I talked about John Saddington‘s post “Don’t Quit Before The Fruits Of Your Labor Are Revealed“. There are some great truths and some very encouraging words in that post that really hit home with me. I can honestly say that, by the grace of God, I am a testimony of what John is talking about in that post. Definitely worth a read.
Now, lets get into this past month’s review, shall we?
- Albert Einstein On Imagination Vs. Knowledge – Even though he had more knowledge than I ever will, he still things imagination (like creativity) is more important than knowledge.
- Becoming A Social Media Rockstar – The current series that we’re nearing the end of. Taking you from average “Joe” to social media Pro.
- The Ultimate Google+ Tutorials Site – The number 1 source for Google+ tips, tricks, and tutorials.
David Willard Jr. – Reclaiming his throne as the number 1 commenter of all-time on Dustn.tv. Be on the look out, his blog is about to get a serious facelift and full on enterprise treatment sometime soon!
Brandon – He finally showed that David Willard Jr. can be defeated last month, and that is quite a feat! Coming in at a close second place, Brandon is still one of my most encouraging commenters.
Valerie Joy Deveza – A self-proclaimed “Inbound Marketing Geek” who blogs about WordPress, Inbound Marketing, and Social Media marketing. I was also lucky enough to have her help me with a Google+ Hangout experiment that I hope to use for future clients. Thanks again Valerie!
For the month of March I’ll be holding a contest! Throughout the month you’ll be able to accumulate points. The three people at the end of the month with the most points will be given the opportunity to be a part of a 4-week long master class where I will evaluate, coach, and strategize with the participants to take their online presence to the next level! The class will meet once a week on Saturday mornings via Google+.
How do you get points? Well let me tell you:
Leave a comment = 1,000 points
Any time you leave a comment during the month of March, I will award you 1,000 points! Zoinks, that’s a lot of points!
Tweet a post = 1,000 points
Tweet a link to any post from dustn.tv (making sure to @mention me so that I know about it) I will award you with 1,000 points! Egads!
Google+ post = 1,000 points
So it’s simple– each social action is worth 1,000 points. Why 1,000 points? Why not just one point? Because it’s more fun when you’re dealing with thousands of points. Single points are boring. I don’t do boring. If you ever see me doing boring, you have my permission to slap me with a silly stick.
A brief note
You may notice a few formatting changes happening here and there (or you may not) with the site’s design. This is because I’m getting ready for a sweet redesign since my pals over at 8BIT have been letting me play with their newest release of the greatest blogging theme ever!
Enough about me– how about you? What did the month of February bring for you? You can leave a comment by clicking here.
