Nik Peachey's comment, August 4, 2013 12:11 AM
There's quite a long review and brief tutorial of Roon here: http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/roon-is-a-slick-easy-to-use-blogging-platform-you-may-want-to-try/ I particularly like the comment in the summary "Sometimes we get caught up in complex blogging platforms, plugins and more. Roon takes all of that away and ensures that you focus on what matters the most – your words." A rich feature set isn't always an advantage. Roon certainly isn't a competitor to WordPress, but it does make it easy to just get down to writing. For students that can be quite an advantage.
Tracee Orman's curator insight, August 4, 2013 6:14 AM

I just tried Roon out and made a post (on my Mac, by the way). I wanted to try it to see if it was something to share with students. It was pretty easy, though figuring out how to change the title of the post from "Untitled" was frustrating (I assumed the "Header" was the title...not so. You just click on it after you save and can change it in the sidebar.). 

 

I'm not sure what the point of giving your blog a title was when it posts as your user name and never shows your blog title. My advice: use your blog title as your user name. 

 

Not sure if I will use this with my students, but it is a simple and easy format. And free. Here's my simplistic post: http://mrsorman.roon.io/untitled

Is Trust the Answer to Employee Motivation?

Daniel Watson's curator insight, November 28, 2013 6:57 PM

 

Most small businesses that employ staff, find that the level of motivation in individuals can vary remarkably, and even for individuals their motivation levels can rise or fall dramatically over time.

 

Sometimes it is hard for business owners to understand what motivates or demotivates their employees, and given the complex science behind motivational theory, it is not surprising that articles on the subject can be very weighty and at times incomprehensible.

 

This excellent article, suggests that trust is the key factor in determining staff motivation, and it provides a simple infographic that very neatly sums up the whole subject to allow a better understanding of the basics of employee motivation.

Sigrid de Kaste's curator insight, November 30, 2013 12:01 AM

~Daniel Watson's insight:

 

"Small business owners are often reluctant to embrace new approaches to tried and proven ways of doing business, however the speed with which innovation is proceeding these days, can see those who adopt a wait and see approach being left far behind.

 

Business communications are one area where innovation is constant, and business owners need to be aware of the capabilities of new offerings, as well as being prepared to rapidly implement low cost and highly efficient means of improving the way in which any business communicates with its stakeholders.

 

This excellent article, introduces all of the tremendous benefits that Google + Hangouts can deliver to any business, and it provides seven tips on how a business can make the most of this free service  that does not require great technical expertise to deploy."

15-Plus Tech Tools To Skyrocket Your LinkedIn Profile To The Next Level

LinkedIn is the undisputed leader for business and career-oriented social networking. Some claim it is too boring, too plaid, but the network quietly simmers away in the background serving the needs of job seekers and business owners.

 

I am a heavy user of the service and regularly search for tools that will make it even more profitable for my blogging and content company. I explored 35-plus tools in a post at Small Business Trends (where I’m the tech product review editor): 35 LinkedIn Tools For Business.

5 MIGLIORI CONSIGLI PER COMUNICARE IN MANIERA AUTENTICA E CREARE UNA COMMUNITY.

 

1) Scrivi come se stessi parlando nel tuo stile di sempre. Non cercare di essere diverso quando scrivi.

 

2) Tutti possono scrivere. Lascia andare la tua paura. Raccogli i pensieri e inizia a buttar giù nero su bianco. Conosci sicuramente l'argomento.

 

3) Sii molto chiaro e diretto. Scvrivi in modo semplice e lineare in modo da farti seguire dal tuo pubblico. Non sembrare sofisticato.

 

4) Sii onesto. Se vuoi persone appassionate al tuo prodotto/servizio devi dire la verità, devi ammettere qualche debolezza. Se c'è stato un problema ammettilo e dai prova di come l'hai risolto.

 

5) Crea una comunità. Se hai seguito i 4 punti precedenti, riuscirai a creare una comunità intorno alla tua azienda/prodotto/servizio. I tuoi clienti diventeranno tuoi fans.

More than two-million accounts for users of popular online services including Facebook, Twitter, Gmail and Yahoo have been compromised after malware captured, among other things, their login credentials...

Indeed, a whole lot of the passwords used by the infected accounts weren’t exactly what you’d call top-notch. Trustwave grouped the length and type of characters used in the passwords to get a gauge on their complexity and this is what it found...

Since social media is changing so often, it can be really hard to keep up with stats and trends that affect how you use it. I quite often forget the facts that I’ve read, or I use Twitter based on stats that are outdated now.

 

In fact, when I recently looked at some of the latest social media statistics, it hit me that the fastest growing demographic on Twitter is is the 55–64 year age bracket. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg in terms of what’s changed.

 

In case you’re in the same boat with me, I gathered up some really interesting Twitter stats that can help you improve the way you reach your followers. Especially when trying to gear up for the new social media for business, being in the know of the latest stats is more valuable than ever....
