In The Sphere: How Do I… ?

Published on Jan 30, 2009   //  In the Sphere

Welcome to another rousing speedlink session that we like to call In The Sphere. In this weekly feature, we take a look at what people are talking about on the Internet and this week, we’re leaning how (and how not) to do things and how (and how not) to live life to its fullest. Let’s see what the blogosphere has to say.

Nate Whitehill has been using Twitter for quite some time now, networking with other online professionals and meeting all sorts of interesting people. Over the course of his journeys, he has also learned five ways not to use Twitter. Try to keep your complaining and spamming to a minimum, please.

Big Bad Bobby asks us a simple question that may actually take you quite some time to come up with an appropriate response. What do you want your life to look like? If you approach life haphazardly and without any sense of direction, you’ll just end up in limbo.

The Keyword Academy helps us decide on which domains are more valuable and why we should choose them. We already know that having keywords in the domain is a good idea, but is it better to use dashes or no dashes. What if you have to choose between a dashed dot com or an undashed dot net? Which is the better choice for SEO?

Neil Patel may be a pretty young fellow, but he’s already well-versed in the world of entrepreneurship. He may be successful now, but he explains why his first business failed. Take note of these seven reasons and make sure you don’t duplicate Neil’s mistakes when you choose to start your own business.

Eamonn Fitzgerald has noticed something that has slowly crept into our world. It came slowly yet surely and the phenomenon is very much real today. We live in public now. Whereas we may have once guarded our private lives from the outside world, we now let people know what we’re having for dinner through Twitter, our relationship status through Facebook, and our daily lives through our blogs. They know. The world knows.
