  1. Q4 What is your third Twitter Tip to share (or five tips or a question)? What would you like to know or learn? #SocialCafe
  2. @Kathrynclang Oh, that reminds me.. But, considering the next request for a tip is now, I'll add it to the tip. But, you get the credit for reminding me of it, @Kathrynclang ;). #SocialCafe
  3. A4: Twitter Tip: Define why you are doing it - and it has to be something beyond "they said I needed to do it." #SocialCafe
  4. A4 If you want some help in building Twitter relationships, you can use a tool like @commun_it to help you. Still build quality (versus numbers) like @Kathrynclang and @conpsweeney mentioned, but the tool does help #SocialCafe
  5. A4: Twitter Tip: Use tools and apps to support the engagement not to replace it. #SocialCafe
  6. @Kathrynclang You know, I wonder what the stats would show for those who do do something (let's say any particular social media platform) because someone told them they needed to do so... #SocialCafe
  7. @socialwebcafe I suspect that there aren't much to the stats because they give up. If you don't have a passion and purpose supporting the action then it's easier to give up #SocialCafe
  8. @socialcafechat A4) Experiment! Always strive for better results. Besides, #twitter changes enough that you need to be ready! #socialcafe
  9. @Kathrynclang I was just wondering if I started on Twitter because someone said I should :). But, like you said, the passion took over at some point, regardless of why I started. #SocialCafe
  10. @conpsweeney @socialcafechat ALL the platforms change all the time. If you are trying to read the cards then you will never beat the house. Invest in people - they are more powerful than platforms #SocialCafe
  11. @conpsweeney @socialcafechat And, these days, that could be said about most of the social media platforms, eh? Maybe #Facebook has some stability... but changes amidst the others, it seems #SocialCafe
  12. @socialwebcafe I fell in love from the first tweet. There was just something about the challenge of 120 characters :D #SocialCafe
  13. I love what @Kathrynclang says - Invest in People! That is great advice (that I'm borrowing) as the takeaway for today's #SocialCafe :)
  14. @Kathrynclang I miss that! Now with more characters, that challenge is not the same. (I babble too much! lol) #SocialCafe
  15. Well, as always, I am reluctant to say goodnight, but I am off to put this in a summary.. such great tweets by @conpsweeney and @Kathrynclang ! Thanks for joining us at #SocialCafe
  16. #socialcafe Have to bail now! Thanks for joining all! See everyone next week!
  17. @socialwebcafe @socialcafechat A1: I've been managing a brand Twitter account for years but because I'm the only one that cares about Twitter (not an exaggeration), we definitely aren't using it to its fullest potential. I'm looking forward to learning and showing what it can do! #SocialCafe
  18. @socialcafechat A2: Follow up. If you tweet a problem to/about a brand, give them praise if the issue is resolved. #SocialCafe
  19. @socialcafechat A3: Read your tweet out loud before you post it--you're more likely to catch any mistakes. For me, typos are the WORST on Twitter (I'll delete a tweet of mine, regardless of the impressions, if I discover it has a typo). Remember, there is no edit button for a tweet. #SocialCafe

  25. Welcome to #SocialCafe - our 30 min check-in on social media marketing (and blogging :) )
  26. How is everyone today? How has the week been going? Are you finding your 2018 groove? #SocialCafe
  27. I think personally I may have overshot that 2018 groove and getting a bit tired... but not burned-out, no, not that! #SocialCafe
  28. Ok - so my wife convinced me to participate in #SocialCafe... but I tend to be a lurker.. lol
  29. Hey, I have a really physical job and sore, but I keep balanced by playing my guitar when I have downtime... Great way to ease the mind :) #SocialCafe
  30. @socialwebcafe Yeah - I'd say you overshot it! When are we gonna make music? I mean pop, jazz, rock, you name it! #SocialCafe
  31. Oh, and she isn't going to brag about it, but Deborah (@socialwebcafe) was selected to be considered for submitting music to film productions. #SocialCafe
  32. Ok - so now we need to start singing with that guitar.. lol #SocialCafe
  33. @conpsweeney Hey Con - never have to apologize for that. You had a busy day! #SocialCafe
  34. Q1 Do you have a blogging plan or do you intend to develop one? (Or, do you blog, or do you intend to blog?) #SocialCafe
  35. Ok, now that we are all relaxed (or thinking about getting relaxed) let's find our topic, eh? Tonight is about blogging (specifically blogging organization ... so we have rest!) #SocialCafe
  36. @conpsweeney I predict you fall asleep before your head hits the pillow :) #SocialCafe
  37. @SteveCassady Thanks, Steve. I'll try to do more chatting and less lurking ;) I often lurk on #LinkedInChat ;) Room for improvement on my part going forward :) #SocialCafe
  38. @socialcafechat A1) More or less, I keep changing it! And, I do blog, posting weekly #socialcafe
  39. @socialcafechat A1 I do have a blogging plan. As with all things Deborah-related, it is more complicated than it should be, but it works for my complicated mind. #SocialCafe
  40. A1a I use a separate program, a database application I built through @FileMaker Developer. For others, I might suggest something like a spreadsheet. #SocialCafe
  41. @conpsweeney Whoah - I'm impressed that you fit supper in there! Then again, it is only 6p here, so supper hasn't happened quite yet. #SocialCafe
  42. @conpsweeney @socialcafechat You know.. I checked out your blog this evening, Con. I'm impressed. Now, do you have any advice for 32 blogs? I think I've narrowed it down from 50 to 32, but it can be overwhelming #SocialCafe
  43. @socialwebcafe Yes, it was like, enter house, wolf food, then log on and I still was late! #socialcafe
  44. Q2 What is your method or strategy for blogging organization? Or, what do you intend to do? (It can be another topic if you do not blog) #SocialCafe
  45. @conpsweeney @socialwebcafe Oh, your "late" was hardly worth mentioning... As far as I'm concerned, you were on time! #socialcafe
  46. @socialcafechat A2) I limit myself to #socialmedia and try to take my topics from questions or problems that my clients have recently had #socialcafe
  47. @socialcafechat I plan a calendar of posts; I have 3 going at once, doing the bulk on the 3rd, the refinement on the 2nd, and then finalize the 1st for publishing. That is 3 versions of ea post. So, with 3 posts in the works, that is 9 revisions x 32 blogs. Oh, dear, I am crazy! #SocialCafe
  48. And, where do I fit music in there? Still waiting... alter ego @socialwebcafe ! #SocialCafe
  49. @conpsweeney @socialcafechat How did you know? Oh, yeah, those mentions of the "up all night" in Skype... yeah, I only sleep about 3 hrs a night.. My brain never turns off completely... lol #SocialCafe
  50. @DeborahE Yes, I talk to myself.. lol Who else when everyone is doing what they are supposed to be doing and sleeping at night? #SocialCafe
  51. Q3 Where are some areas that you need help in keeping things on track, whether it is blogging or something else (so that you get that rest!) #SocialCafe
  52. As long as you don't get into arguments with yourself and lose! #socialcafe
  53. Maybe I could write a country song about it... not sleeping... the dog growls (or snores)... Nah, I'll stick with #Jazz :) #SocialCafe
  54. @conpsweeney Nope... Though, I did ask @seasiderecords to argue with me while I drove home on the 405 because I would get too sleepy. The arguments kept me alert :) #SocialCafe
  55. @socialwebcafe @conpsweeney Yeah, and when she got home it was like, "Was that a real argument or are we ok?" and i'd give her a hug and we'd live happily ever after that #SocialCafe
  56. A3 I need to realize that some blog posts don't have to be books or magazine articles. They can be commentaries on fascinating YouTube videos, or reviews of products - wise use of time #SocialCafe
  57. @conpsweeney @socialwebcafe At least they were kind arguments, relatively low-key :) And, never real ones. #SocialCafe
  58. @conpsweeney @socialwebcafe Never. Plus, it is difficult when she is in the car and I am at home on the cell... lol >> All hugs when she got home :) #SocialCafe
  59. A4 I have a question... What do we think about 30 min Twitter Chats? Originally it was to incorporate our hangouts... And, there is always the availability of free flow chat... #SocialCafe
  60. Going to bail now before I embarrass myself! Thanks for joining everyone! See you next week! #socialcafe
  61. @conpsweeney Have a good one and thanks so much for being a part of #SocialCafe tonight even though you need rest from your hectic day. Definitely appreciated, Con!
  62. That wraps up the official part of #SocialCafe We are here for any other random chat, but be sure to join us for the official #SocialCafe Same Time Next Week 6p PT / 9p ET
  63. @socialwebcafe That will be a good one. You mean google hangouts? If so, why not Facebook live? #SocialCafe
  64. @akathmadevi Yep - we were the ones who started the combo of Twitter Chats and Hangouts (back before Facebook Live) but we are considering Facebook Live :) We were the pioneers in that arena here at #SocialCafe :)
  65. @akathmadevi Yay - will do! In fact, I just contacted one of my associates about it ;) Thanks! #SocialCafe

  72. @socialwebcafe @conpsweeney Well - let's just say that if you are having a "discussion" with a company you might not want to mumble "well THIS will make a good story" :D #SocialCafe
  73. @Kathrynclang @conpsweeney Ah... gotcha... yeah, I've done that a couple of times.. And, even ended up writing some stories :) #SocialCafe #LinkedInChat
  74. @conpsweeney @socialwebcafe The more annoyed I am the more likely you end up as a body in one of my novels :D #LinkedInChat #SocialCafe
  75. Welcome to our 30 min Twitter Chat on all things #SocialMedia and #Blogging (Writing) here at #SocialCafe
  76. @Kathrynclang @conpsweeney Oh, I love it! #LinkedInChat #SocialCafe (is "body" in the crime drama sense or the character sense? :) )
  77. Ok - the plan was to go live with Facebook Live tonight but.. (Yeah, we are going to get tired of Deb's "Yeah, buts...") I still have no voice! I got my once-in-a-decade flu and hoping to get my voice back by next week #SocialCafe
  78. @socialwebcafe @conpsweeney Yes! Although I got so mad one time that the story started with the guy as a body - didn't even get to be a person in the story :D #SocialCafe
  79. Ok - so several weeks ago, I said I'd send out the link for the interview to be featured as a "featured blogger." Well, how about a group interview, instead? That way, it is a win-win ... #SocialCafe
  80. @conpsweeney @socialwebcafe I might have to leave if that's the topic . . . or I might get thrown out. #SocialCafe
  81. What is the win-win? #SocialCafe We all get a chance to get to know each other better (answering the questions in the chat) AND you get featured (99% chance) :)
  82. @Kathrynclang @conpsweeney That sounds fair! #SocialCafe I wrote something about bad service at a restaurant and something about "I can get my insults for free, thank you..." Can't remember the restaurant, but promoted it so that they got the attention :)
  83. @socialwebcafe Hi Deborah, thank you for asking and remembering mme chat did go well. When is your Facebook live? Hope it is convenient for me. (Time zone difference) #SocialCafe
  84. @socialwebcafe @conpsweeney With the funeral home incident, I later found out that they had some SERIOUS bad press a few months back. No wonder they freaked #SocialCafe
  85. Q1 Please tell us a bit about yourself. An example of the feature is at  http://famousbloggers.net/roundup-8.html  This would be like the bio of your feature ABOUT YOU ;) #SocialCafe
  86. @akathmadevi Sure thing :) Actually, the plan was to have the Facebook Live now, but I don't have any voice... Not that you all couldn't do it w/o me :) #SocialCafe Does this timeframe work for you, @akathmadevi ? #SocialCafe
  87. @conpsweeney @socialcafechat Sure, if you want to be featured :) That reminds me.. If you want to answer but NOT be featured in an article, just let me know in a tweet :) #SocialCafe
  88. @conpsweeney @Kathrynclang I think I had my first wake, for my adopted mother, in December 2014. She wanted it to be a "party" in honor of her passing. So, that is what we did.. not sure if that constitutes a wake or not.. (I have a lot to learn) #SocialCafe
  89. @socialwebcafe This time frame is my morning here and the day starts with my morning chores at home. If it is tweet chat, I could manage in between. Maybe an hour later, I can try. #SocialCafe
  90. @akathmadevi Thinking of doing what we started in 2013 with the twitter chat and then twitter chat and Facebook Live which would put it closer to your timeframe (I think). #SocialCafe
  91. @socialwebcafe @Kathrynclang That sounds very civilized! Irish wakes are, shall we say, more expressive! #socialcafe
  92. Q2 Please tell us about any honors or recognitions you may have received (i.e. #blogging #writing #business #socialMedia etc.) #SocialCafe
  93. A1: (a)Hopesmith. Dream inspirer. Master of “it’s all about relationships.” Aficionado of inappropriate laughter: I help you find time and focus to give your dreams wings and create world domination. #SocialCafe
  94. A2: (b)As wordsmith, master multi-tasker, and encourager extraordinaire, I know you have a unique purpose and a designed path. Let’s work together to find it because it is ALL about relationships and we are stronger together. #SocialCafe
  95. A2: I won the first #SELTI - SouthEastern Literary Tourism Initiative short story contest (it seeks to link tourism and literature) in 2012 #SocialCafe
  96. Q3 What are your aspirations as a famous blogger? (You can interpret that one however you like :) ) #SocialCafe
  97. A3: I will be in a position to "turn the world upside down" by keeping it simple, staying positive, and being focused on helping others #SocialCafe  https://twitter.com/socialwebcafe/status/958524485409230848 
  98. Q4 Please share up to three links from your portfolio (recognition or articles you have written, etc.) #SocialCafe
  99. A3) Fame, fortune, and not get arrested! Not necessarily in that order! #socialcafe
  100. Q5 Please share the link to your blog as well as some social sites... whatever you want included ;) #SocialCafe
  101. Wow - you all are awesome. Great answers... I am grabbing them up and inserting them :) As they are published, I can share the links in our #SocialCafe chat over the next few weeks ;)
  102. A5: you can get a little bit of encouragement and hope (with a dash of snark to keep it interesting) at  http://www.KathrynLang.com  #SocialCafe
  103. Two more... Q6 How about a link to the highest quality avatar or headshot that you would like included :) #SocialCafe
  104. @conpsweeney Remind me to tell you how I got the idea for this short story :) It involves a REAL skull #SocialCafe Real life is a great way to ignite interesting fiction
  105. Q7 This one should be your easy, open-ended one... It is... Is there anything else you would like to add? That can include tips, recommendations... etc. #SocialCafe
  106. @conpsweeney That's a WHOLE DIFFERENT story ;) #SocialCafe I did write about it on my site
  107. @socialwebcafe @conpsweeney It involved a friend, a facebook post, and a barefoot fisherman. He was standing on the edge of the local lake and the skull rolled over his head (his dad shared on his feed) #SocialCafe
  108. @Kathrynclang @conpsweeney Goodness you got me even more curious! On my way to do some reading ;) #SocialCafe
  109. @socialwebcafe A7: Stop trying to sell things or to build numbers. Instead, go back to the basics: create lasting connections with people and focus on being relentlessly helpful #SocialCafe
  110. @socialwebcafe @conpsweeney Just the stories around my community are enough to keep me writing for a lifetime :D #SocialCafe
  111. I think my chihuahua needs to go do some reading. He is wandering in circles... This Twitter Chat thing is just too much fun for his interest level :) #SocialCafe
  112. Be sure to check out @commun_it for building those real relationships while hanging out on Twitter #SocialCafe
  113. Well all - I've enjoyed our time together. Now, to go compile those features! My pleasure to feature you as famous bloggers (and look forward to your next best selling novels!) #SocialCafe
  114. Night all! Gotta run! Thanks for joining us! See everyone next week! #socialcafe
  115. @Kathrynclang Now you're beginning to worry even me! You're not a trustee in the state pen are you? #socialcafe
  116. Another month! Thank you for your continued support! =D I really appreciate all of you! (And, if you haven't already, join our #SocialCafe to get free training and resources... Tues 6p PT/9p ET on Twitter.)
