- Kick the pile: Don't get caught, indeed: The New York Times reporter who broke the Trump tax story describes how snail-mail helped her get his leaked tax return (and tells you how to tip her on other things). This is how it was done in the Pleistocene era, I can attest.
- Boot 'em out: Can you take the test and best the New York Times comment moderators? "Comments on Times stories are moderated by a team of 14 people known as the community desk. Together, they review around 11,000 comments each day for the approximately 10 percent of Times articles that are open to reader comment."
- That kicking sound: Here's a great tutorial on how to embed just the audio from a YouTube video.
- Drop kick: Ohio State touted its football coach's 1 million Twitter followers before it checked on the 60 percent of them that are fake. You can avoid this by using Twitter Audit, as reporters did on seeing the cheering-section announcement.
- Boot up: If you are selling so much as a t-shirt and mug, and want to take advantage of holiday buyers, best start early. 70 percent of in-store purchases will be driven by online research, well in advance.
- Don't kick yourself: Here's the post the Kardashians might have made use of earlier this week: how to hide your location on Snapchat, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
- Week in review: This week, my Moderating Panels blog looked at 5 tips from a focus group moderator to steal for your next panel. On this blog, I shared notes from a recent workshop of mine on helping artists use social media to promote and sell their art.
- Suited and booted: Buy my ebook, The Eloquent Woman's Guide to Moderating Panels; tell your colleagues to put this blog in their feeds; sign up for my free monthly newsletter, or let me know how we can work together in 2016 or 2017 with an email to eloquentwoman at gmail.com.
