Thanks to you, I have just been voted top food truck blogger in the nation. Food Truck Freak, is but a year and a half old. From Naperville High School students, to regular readers, to Rick Bayless, supporters came out in droves to vote for my little blog. Truth be told the numbers of Food Truck Freak show that the majority of traffic to my site is on the tracker.
Many employers do not know the definition of a “community manager,” let alone what qualities make a good one. Your community manager is the person who is the voice of your company on Facebook and Twitter.
This Thursday is the first day of the first ever Latinos in Social Media (LATISM) conference. I remember talking with Elma about the conference many many months ago. It’s finally here! The agency I work for has helped out by designing the conference website and other creativeÂ collateralÂ (including the logo you see here).
“Hate” is a strong word, so I’ll just say that I loathe Hootsuite. I was a HootSuite user for about 2 years, and now will never go back to them due to ongoing, increasingly horrible experiences with them as a (formerly loyal) client. It all started when I was participating in a live weekly twitter conversation known as #latism (Latinos in Social Media).
A few weeks ago, Nancy Loo of WGN News and her crew contacted me about doing a spot on food trucks. The very next day we filmed and last night her report went live. We hope that Nancy’s fantastic coverage of our food trucks nudges legislators into loosening the legislation that constricts the food trucks.
If you live in a big city, or even in a medium-sized city, you may have seen gourmet food trucks roaming the streets. If you live in Chicago, it’s hard to miss them. Here in Chicago it was hard to find out about new trucks (and existing ones, for that matter) and where they were going to be. That’s why I started Food Truck Freak.
We’ve all been there: you or your company wants a domain but it’s taken. If your in the less fortunate of the bunch, you share a name (brand or birth) and have to fight for the domain name or get creative to work around it. In the case of the agency I work for, paco.com was obviously taken since Paco is short for Francisco; to get all ACT on you, Paco is to Francisco as Chuck is to Charles.
This morning WIRED caught a screen shot of aÂ scandalousÂ tweet posted from The Redner Group, anÂ independent PR agency specializing in video games, consumer tech & entertainment. The tweet read, “too many went too far with their reviews. We r reviewing who gets games next time and who doesn’t based on today’s venom.
For anyone who follows me on Twitter, you may have raised an eyebrow when you saw many tweets with the hashtag #vd2011 No, I was not obsessively warning against venereal disease, instead I was live tweeting my friendsâ€™ wedding whose name are Vince and Denise. The bride chose the hashtag (itâ€™s her kind of twisted humor) and asked me to live tweet her wedding.
This weekend I’ll be doing something new (to me and, according to Google, to most everyone): I’ll be live-tweeting a wedding. @DeniseJoyce, my good friend and fellow sucker for philanthropy, is marrying the love of her live @KruseVince. I asked Denise to tweet this week as she preps for the wedding (I love HGTV, so this is no surprise to people who know me well).
