  1. The Blues Raiders > Late night fun at Manhattan

    Sorry to blog after the event, but the Blues Raiders played Bar Manhattan Cafe Copas last Friday the 20th Januay 2017. I didn't blog before as we were expecting it was only going to be an all Spanish audience as the start time was 11:30pm. As it happens some non-Spanish people did brave...

An aside

Personal Branding

I did a course on personal branding recently by social media guru and entrepreneur Gary Vaynerchuk (@garyvee) As I'm at pains to point out to people, I'm a programmer by trade, and marketing, on-line or otherwise is a second string to me and one to which I'm always keen to learn more about. Anyway - cut a long story short, one of the takeaways of the course involves analyzing my 'DNA' and applying what I've discovered to refashion my social media presence to something more cohesive which better incorporates what I do. One of those strands is that I'm very much rooted in Andalucia, so I've started to build that into my social media profiles. All my social media accounts now feature the Olvera 'panorama' profile picture. I've renamed by Twitter handle as @andaluciasteve and pretty soon this website will transition from I hate Steve Gould to AndaluciaSteve.com. More changes are in the pipeline, so watch this space. Already this has caused a upswing in my Klout score, a huge leap in the number of Twitter followers, with more engagement and interaction with my followers.

Sixth day of April and work continues here on the site. I've made a few changes to the new theme and renewed the Janrain details, so all being well, people can register with the site using the most popular social media accounts, Facebook, Twitter etc. I've added Amazon as an authorization source since I reckon their can't be many people in the Western World who don't have an account with them.
