    You Rock Amy. I never thought I would learn this stuff and instead of being totally stressed out which is the opposite of what my business is all about-lol, I’m totally excited and having fun! Thank you for putting all of this into good old fashion American language that I can understand!!

    This was great! As a blog designer and blogger, I am curious about the whole Feedburner thing. Do you recommend getting another RSS feed service? After the death of Google Reader, I’m worried they’ll kill Feedburner, too! Thoughts?

    Hi Amy
    Dig your first Hangout recording. They say try something new every day! LOL
    I loved watching your brain work as you sussed out why you were hearing everything twice – then you twigged YouTube needed closing down. Haha!
    It reminds me of my 1st webinar when I realised after half an hour I didn’t have the microphone switched on. Yeah, you’ve godda laugh!
    I didn’t listen to the whole hangout – I was more interested in seeing how you got on with your first one (I felt for you, honest… ;) ) and just how hangouts work.

    But I did click in at 7 minutes – (good idea to put the timestamps in :) ) to your “Facebook is getting dated” part – and I admit I am leaning more and more in the same direction. FB is so-o-o-o 2012!
    I am certainly putting time and effort into learning to use Google better as well as Facebook. I do agree with you that Google just seems to have more “legs” than Facebook. I feel much more confident that Google plus will be strong in 5 years than Facebook.

    I’m currently choosing between HootSuite and Buffer for managing my social accounts. Neither is perfect. HootSuite won’t stream your Facebook page newsfeed (lots of moans about that) and Buffer won’t stream G+ at all (yet).

    Any suggestions on easiest ways to monitor streams and post to them? I am interested in keeping on top of:
    FB Profile
    FB Page
    G+ Profile
    G+Page
    Twitter.

    Thanks and well done again ;)

    It was great to join in this morning. I got interrupted a few times, but it was so easy to pause the live video and then just pick up right where I left off. Thanks for the great blogging tips!
