If your cutting board looks like this just before a holiday weekend, you're not at my house...but despite all the prep, I've still got this week's cookie box of treats, tips and finds I shared on Twitter, where I'm @dontgetcaught. Find your own favorites from my plate of selections:
- Doodle, doodle, doodle: Google's Doodles now have their own history page and--even better--a Doodle store where you can buy merch with your favorite Doodle on it. Find the one that best represents your company, cause or organization and go to it.
- Where's this been all my life? AP's Stylebook now offers a tool that will automatically edit your writing into AP Style. That is, unless you are a Mac user...
- No timelines for FB brand pages. Not yet, anyway. This should buy you time to figure it out on your personal profile first. But there are a few FB timeline features you should master now.
- Getting your sights set on the new year? Start with these reads: Five things you should stop doing in 2012, and Do what you love and do it often. Two of the best reads of my year.
- Not that you're looking or anything: It's of pure academic interest to you, I'm sure, that you can use Storify to create an interactive resume.
- Hitting the road? Use this guide to prepping your laptop and smartphone for travel. Good stuff here.
- Staying local? Here are 4 ways to create Foursquare lists that get noticed. Like waitressing, it's all about the tips.
- Enjoy your phone now, because one in nearly every 7 ads will be mobile by 2016.
- Bloggers, sit back and review the state of the blogosphere 2011. Much to chew on.
- Veterans have an expanded presence on Facebook, thanks to the U.S. Veterans Administration.
If you're celebrating a holiday this weekend--or just enjoying the fact that others' attention is elsewhere--I wish you all the same: Warmth, family, friends, food, lights, rest and wonder. Thanks so much for spending a small part of your week, and weekend, here with me.
