  61. 61. LESSONS LEARNED • WordPress was easy to set up and tweak • (plugins of note: adsense manager, akismet, emo vote, google analyticator, statpress reloaded, twitter tools, wordpress mobile edition) • Twitter can be used lots of ways, and how you use it is a personal choice. • Broadcasting blog updates is easy • Figuringout who to follow is not. On the plus side, it’s easy to stop following someone.
  62. 62. LESSONS LEARNED • Talk to people directly, and let them know you appreciate what they do (tweets, blog posts, etc.) • Doing something crazy can sometimes pay off! • The IA/UX community is made of win. • Hopefully you learned other stuff too! :-)
