Tweet Tweet There are millions of personal blogs around these days. Not all of them have powerful blog posts. You need to do your research and work hard to develop powerful blog posts on a daily basis. This infographic by QuickSprout covers how you can develop highly powerful blog posts:
Perhaps we don’t have that much in common. Ah, but we do. Personal brands are we. Our agendas may differ—better job, more clients, book sales, or (your goal here)—but we seek the same things: recognition, respect, influence and success.
You, my friend, are a brand.
A photographer. Life coach. Presentation expert. Alternative energy entrepreneur. Website developer. Skin care clinician. These are six simplified profiles of clients who have hired me recently to help them create more effective online marketing by developing their personal brand.
This is no trend. It’s social media, publishing, marketing, sales, work, play, passion and everything you read about all rolled into one.
I realize now it’s what I’ve been doing (and sometimes struggling with) since I went to work for myself. Or is it? It’s probably more accurate to say it’s what I’ve been doing since my bar mitzvah—defining the man I am.
With that in mind, I submit to you personal branding is something you need to understand. It’s something you need to develop deliberately—even if what you’ve been doing and saying to this day has been largely accidental.

A solar installation built on a former 29-acre municipal landfill that has since been capped and covered with soil in the town of Scituate, Massachusetts has been chosen from a pool of 21 finalists to receive a 2014 "Photovoltaic Project of Distinction" award from the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) and the Solar Electric Power Association (SEPA).
The 3 MW, 12.5-acre "Scituate Solar I" project makes Scituate the first town in the United States to operate 100 percent of its city-owned facilities with renewable energy. The project features 10,560 polysilicon panels and includes design and engineering considerations that maintain the integrity of the sensitive landfill cap. An online monitoring system that measures the project's real-time and cumulative energy output is accessible to teachers, students and the general public.
Scituate Solar is expected to produce 3.825 million kilowatt-hours per year and save the town $200,000 a year from net metering.

When most people say they're building a "web app" they're talking about writing source code that describes an application that will run on the server and send rendered HTML to the browser. This definition seems a bit narrow and limiting. Plus, when I think of my favorite web apps they don't fit neatly into that box. The best web apps often have multiple interfaces and clients, some native, some web. Most play nicely with or completely integrate with other services. Generally web apps are good at solving some specific problem or provide some specific benefit and use the web to tie it all together.

While the world watches the nerve-racking matches being played inside, our eyes are completely dazed by what's going on outside the Mineirão stadium. This 1965 soccer stadium in Belo Horizonte was recently equipped with a whopping 6,000 solar panels on its roof just in time for the international competition. An initiative by local electricity company CEMIG, this is the first ever World Cup stadium completely powered by the sun.
Originally built in 1965, the public listed Estádio Governador Magalhães Pinto is one of this year’s World Cup venues. Topped with 6,000 rooftop solar panels, it doubles as a complete photovoltaic solar plant (USF) capable of supplying power to 1,200 households. The plant was built by the Minas Gerais State Electricity Company (CEMIG), in partnership with German bank kfW and Minas Arena, the group that manages the Mineirão.
Because the panels produce more energy than is necessary to power the stadium (1,600 megawatts-hour per year), 10 percent of the remaining power goes directly to regular consumers.
Although the Mineirão is the First World Cup stadium completely supplied by solar power, is not the first one in the world. This idea takes inspiration from Germany’s Freiburg and Switzerland’s Bern stadium, which also works thanks to the brightest star.
