First, I can’t believe I made this list!
OK, it looks like I Photoshop’d myself into this list (below), but I promise I didn’t (though I did add the red circle). Believe me, no one’s more surprised than I.

It’s based on social media reach and stuff like that and apparently the calculation has to do with everything from your Klout score to your Twitter presence, and a bunch of other stuff. Anyway, here’s the link to the full list: http://richtopia.com/people/500-ceos

2. Get your whole year on Instagram analyzed immediately for free!
This is really pretty cool — you just go to this web site (called Siftr); enter your Instragram handle, and it prints out of a page of stats that is really helpful/awesome.

It automatically calculates everything from which photos you posted had the most engagement to which hashtags you use the most, to which type of photos you post the most, and so much more. It’s a wealth of background knowledge delivered in just a few seconds right on-screen, and it’s presented in a really clean, clear layout. Definitely worth doing (I’ll be you’ll be surprised at some of what you learn). :)

3.  I’ve got a cool tip if you use Lightroom Mobile!
This is one of those little-known tips, but man will you find it helpful. Here’s the link (we post stuff like this all the time over at LightroomKillerTips.com).

4. The wifey got me a cool little amp for Christmas!
It’s a small, portable Fender Tube Amp (the Fender Super Champ 2X) — I had been wanting something really clean to use with my pedal board (my Marshall tube amps are awesome, but even when you’re using the “clean” channel they still sound “dirty”). So, I’ve been playing it quite a big and super digging it! Thanks sweetie!  (BTW: I’ll make you guys a tape when I get a chance). BTW: That’s a Snark Tuner on top — I talked about it in our 20-days of Christmas.

OK, I gotta run
By the way — what happened to the Giants last night? It was a weird week in the NFL this past week, with weird plays (like that Giant’s 3rd Quarter onside kick debacle, and the Redskins take a knee weirdness), but how ’bout those Flacons stopping the Panthers’ undefeated streak. Crazy right? I love the timing — I shooting with the Falcon’s next weekend. Time to bring out the remotes! #riseup

Have a great Monday everybody (and by everybody I mean only those folks who are actually at work — I know a lot of folks are off this week), but whether you’re taking time off for the holidays, or you’re bringing home the bacon, I wish you a very fun week. :)

Best,

-Scott 

 

Art Christmas invitation background

To kick off this Christmas week, please join me in being “lame” and sing the following to the tune of Bing Crosby’s “I’ll be home for Christmas:” 

“I’m laming out for the Holidays
You can count on it.
There won’t be posts, or any news
It’s a present just for me. 

Christmas Eve will find me
Far away from this blog.
But I’ll be back again next week
I’m off to watch TV”

That’s right folks, I am totally “laming out” (laming rhymes with flaming) and kicking back and relaxing with the family. I’m not working, blogging, breathing, eating, posting; there’s no Grid episode this week, no guest blog Wednesday; just joyous rest, relaxation, and the sounds of distorted guitar between football games.

So, take a brief moment to soak in all the wonder and magic that is a stock image with text I added in Photoshop, and then let’s not think about any of this until next week. Deal? Deal!

Here’s wishing you and your family a safe, happy, healthy holiday and all the joy His season can bring. :)

Merry Christmas!
