Last Few Days to Support Me

Blogging Contest

Measuring Social Media ROI & Goal Conversions with Google Analytics 5 covers the often discussed topic of how to actually measure your social media campaign’s return on investment (in monetary terms) and how your social media campaigns lead to conversions on your website.

Each post in this blogging contest gets two weeks to promote their work, and my last day is Monday, August 15th. Any last minute support while we go down to the wire is still appreciated. So if you haven’t already (or even if you have), please:

  • Comment with any questions or thoughts – these count for double the points!
  • Tweet and Like using the buttons below!

Again, a HUGE THANKS goes out to everyone who’s supported me through social shares on any and all social networks plus the links on your blogs! I really couldn’t have done this much without all of your wonderful help! :)

Photo of the Week

This week’s top photo came from the tough to infiltrate Trotting Park in Arizona. We’re talking it is a covert mission almost impossible to get in and out of this place without getting caught, but the photographic gems were worth the plotting and planning!


Be sure to check out my photography blog for more photos (I post new pics Monday through Friday) and follow me @kristihines for my photography tweets or become a fan of Photostry on Facebook!


My friend Gail who shares small business marketing tips also shares some great videos, including this one. So random, yet entertaining!

    This is such a crazy video :) I skipped breakfast and I am still on my coffee so for a second there I thought my mind went crazy cause it wasn’t fed, lol. I can only imagine who ever made this video, what was in his head!

    Thanks for including me again, I really appreciate it, being included in your lists is a real honor to me. I have to figure out something cool to write about so I make it again! :)

    Hey Kristi this is so much at one place did you read all these articles in one day well I was really worried because every article was catchy and seems like “this is what I exactly need to read” but as I was scrolling I start how I am going to read them but the video really refreshes my mind
