Hey kids. Sorry for the lack of updates around here. Most of my time lately has been spent organizing Tattooleetup. But I don’t want to use that as a crutch. A few weeks ago, I mentioned that we would be posting another “Spotlight On…” feature and I still have every intention of doing this. With any luck, I’ll have that posted by the end of the week. Once Tattooleetup is in the rearview, I’ll have more time to focus on the updates that have been few and far between here.
As far as the Toledo Twitter Users directory goes, I have been working on that. I’ve discovered a pair of tools that have greatly simplified that process. At some point, we’ll have a signup page available for new users to add themselves to the directory. But this here blog will be relocating before too terribly long. The limitations of a WordPress.com blog are making themselves more and more apparent by the minute. Moving to a hosted site is just the most logical next step. Keep your eyes peeled for more news soon!

But I wanted to kick things off with a Toledoan whom I feel is making a difference in the community. Mike is an integral part of Social Media Breakfast Toledo and his Mike’s Points blog is a worthwhile bookmark for social media professionals and enthusiasts alike. Mike’s frequent columns on TalentZoo.com establish him as a key figure in public relations and marketing. Mike is a valuable asset to the Toledo community as well as a must-follow on Twitter. But these are just my words. Let’s turn things over to Mike in a brief Q&A session that I conducted with him via email. Read the rest of this entry »
Welcome to TOLeeps. Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Mark Pannell, @7son75 on Twitter. I started this page for one reason: to help Toledoans connect on Twitter. Twitter does a lot of things right, but cataloging users by geographical area is not one of them. With that in mind, I’d like this site to serve as a resource for Toledo Twitter users looking for fellow Toledoans on Twitter. As time passes, I might discover a more scientific approach to gathering Toledoans. But until then, I’ll be compiling this list by hand. Read the rest of this entry »
