Tweetstock007 The Web Is Not Enough

Tweetstock You've Come A Long Way Baby!

If you follow any of my posts/tweets/status updates you know I am Tweetstock's biggest fan.
I dare anyone to dispute that fact.  You can see a glimpse by searching this blog and seeing how many times I mention Tweetstock in my posts.

I think of myself as a Tweetstock early adopter.  I met Trevor, Tweetstock's founder through Lindsay Jacobs  at the Unmarketing book launch.  Soon after I was asked to speak at Tweetstock 3 and was hooked!  Everyone I met so wonderful.  Since then I've attended Tweetstock 4, where I first met Kevin who then was kind enough to put me in his book that launched at Tweetstock 5.  By Tweetstock 6 Diane & I were coined as the VolunTIARAS and we truly feel part of the Brantford family!


The buzz about this event was hard to ignore, especially with an Atomic Spark  promo like this

The day started off with a BANG! or should I say DAGONE! Marcus wondered why no one was filling up the front seats.  I always wonder that as well
If you were going to a CONCERT you pay excessive amounts of money to be in the front row, but when it comes to speaking engagements everyone does whatever they can not to be in the front row.  Am I right?
So after Marcus loosened everyone up it was a great day! Lots of great moments from the speakers, panels and so many connections were made. I could give you a run down about all the speakers, but I'll let you get some thoughts from others.  I think I've already posted about it all over twitter & facebook anyways.

There was one thing very unique about this event.  A sixteen minute Webisode was created and screened at the event.  Now that is smart thinking.  If your event takes place in a movie theatre, create a movie for it!
They brought together the top names in Social Media (& then let us be part of it).  The day of filming was so exciting and I wish that I could spend every Saturday having that fun!

Tweetstock007 - The Movie

Now that you've expirenced the Director's Cut Version, tell me what you thought (pick all that apply) 

The next Tweetstock will be happening this November, and all the details will be posted on the Facebook page as they are released.  You can also following along on twitter and tweet to @TweetstockCA

Pinterest Boards - Timeline Photos, Cover Photo and Board Arranging

Change it Up

As many of you may know by now when you click on your Pinterest page for your boards, each one now has a "timeline-like" pic of you most recent pin.  This is known on Pinterest as a Cover Photo.

(not sure what I mean? Just login to Pinterest then in the top right corner where it shows your avatar, click the drop down menu arrow and the 3rd item will say Boards, click that and all of your boards will show up).

Now that you are looking at all your boards does the latest pin on each one really represent what the board is about?  If so great, if not follow these easy steps

  1. Hover over the title of the board so that an underline show up
  2. Click the name of that board
  3. Hover over the photo you want as the Cover pic
  4. At the bottom of the pic "Set Board Cover", click that button
  5. A window will pop up that will let you arrange how the photo will look, you can move it around with the aid of your mouse
  6. Once your Cover Photo position is set, click Set Cover
Now if you click your name at the top of the page you will go back to all your boards.

To rearrange the order that your Pinterest boards are displayed

It's very easy to order your Pinterest boards, simply...
  • go to your menu under your profile pic and beside the Edit profile button hover over the little box with the two directional arrows on it.  It will become a rearrange boards button and you can simply drag and drop the boards to their new spots.
It may take a few attempts to move the boards to a new spot (if the board won't move to the spot, move it to the spot beside where you want it to be, then after switch it one more time).
After every Pinterest board is in its proper place, click the red checkmark at the top (beside the edit profile menu option) and your new Pinterest board display is complete.
