6 Tips Publishers Should Have in Their Back Pockets

With the new year just around the corner, don’t be caught with your pants down without these tips/suggestions in your back pockets. (Did you catch the pun there?) ;)

1. Get on the Responsive Design Train

Mobile ready, mobile now! If you’ve been slacking/pushing it off, now’s the time to bring that idea into the front burner, and crank it out. More and more sites are getting responsive, as more and more people use their phones as a primary want to connect to the internet. (Btw, Smart Layers is mobile-ready.)

My first week as a Springer!

Last week was my first week here at Clearspring and already I feel like a part of the family.  Maybe it’s the daily catered lunches or the Wii Tennis Tournament we had on Friday (Jeff and I clinched 2nd place!) or perhaps it’s because my desk is right next to the snack table (don’t worry, I don’t judge!) — but whatever the reason, everyone’s made a genuine effort to introduce themselves and make me feel at home.

As with most new jobs, the first week consists of trying to learn new names with faces to match, who does what, where you need to be when, and the ins and outs of how to get this or that done.  Lucky for me, my coworkers made that (typically overwhelming) experience an absolute joy  — I don’t know that I’ve ever walked into a new job and felt so welcomed!

What I love is there’s a clear “work-hard, play-hard” aura in the office and it’s evident how much Clearspring employees enjoy their jobs.  Knowing that I’ll be working with people who exude such positive energy combined with seasoned skills, talents, knowledge, experience and passion is both refreshing and motivating.

I’m extremely happy with this opportunity to work with such an excellent team, and I look forward to learning from them and sharing that knowledge with you!


AddThis – A Spiritual Experience

We recently stumbled across this awesome video of a user preaching – literally – about his experience with AddThis. We couldn’t resist sharing!

We’ve always maintained that we have an amazing community of support but testimonials from people who dig the product never get old. And when it comes in the form of a sermon on sharing, well, we just can’t argue with that!

We love you too, friend!
