Spot on man. I love all the things you list. Top 10 people talking about me, the very first one you listed, is awesome because I think it fills the paranoia we all have about who is saying what. Top 10 people I talk about would also be really cool to have and extremely special for someone who finds themselves mentioning a lot of different people in their tweets.

Nice Guest post Barb!
I feel like this is SO much easier said than done. For one, your critics sometimes are nothing short of idiots. They are uninformed, wrong on their info and do not back up opinions if you disagree. Sure, some critics can be extremely helpful but some of these critics do nothing more than act irrationality towards you with comments they can’t backup. I wish I could find time to make critics my friends. Instead, they push me to hatred!

I kind of agree on one hand about the whole “staying ontopic” thing because sometimes doing that gets you to have a bland article and you should be able to go offtopic a little bit. Having said that, nobody wants to read a blog that is random and has absolutely random points in it when they are looking for a specific thing. Now, like I said, from time to time it is refreshing to go a tad offtopic, especially in a longer article, but I dont think it should be a habit. I don’t know if I agree that its a rule that you should break.
Everything else looks good though. Nice article.

Wow, extremely deep article that is well thought out. This was a fantastic piece of work and it is something that really took some time to look over. I agree that branding is more important than ever before. This is an era where people look for name brands in everything because they can find the reputation of said product or ANYTHING by looking at that brand and telling what it is. That is why, as you pointed out, commercialization of products with fancy commercials that normally we would not see are sticking in our heads. We talk a lot about this kind of stuff in class… How much brands impact us and its undeniable. People buy Macs now because of those great commericials that we saw everyday with “the guy from the movie Accepted.” There was once a time where everybody had a PC but Mac changed its branding and look how it worked out?
Thats the beautiful thing in general about all of this stuff. Companies are now also more responsible. Once your company is a brand name and bad news comes out… watch out. Its not just mouth to mouth gossip anymore… its all over the internet, and other social media sites. In this age, you have to be extra careful!
