Cheap Content Stinks

Don’t “Fluff” Out – Rich Content is the Only Content Worth Sharing

Beware of Promises of Cheap and Easy Content! I am always on the lookout for assistance in producing content, I simply only have so many hours in a day to do what I love. I’ve explored outsourcing, interns, guest writers, content clearing houses, and even fiverr.com as potential avenues to provide supplemental content development services. To date, I have seen little in the way of quality content that I would use – aside from unpaid communications from thought leaders and […]

Parking Ticket - Thirst Productions

The Parking Ticket – How a Tiny Piece of Paper Represents Everything That is Wrong with America.

The Parking Ticket, Indicative of Everything that is Wrong with America. At a business meeting the other day in lovely Downtown Portsmouth, New Hampshire, I found myself running “late” in said meeting, and willingly came to accept that I would be receiving a parking ticket. I was aware of the consequences of my actions when parking in a metered space, and made a contract of sorts with the city to abide by their rules. I was an active participant. I […]

A Tiny Bit Huge Portsmouth NH

Why I love Where I Live, Portsmouth NH

I confess. Portsmouth, New Hampshire, I have been unfaithful. Having moved just outside your borders to the Town of Greenland, I sometimes tear up having called you my home for a decade or so. I miss you. The good news is, the entire Seacoast Community defines Port City – we all can’t live within her borders, with a population of just over 21,000 people – you’re just a tiny little town on the Coastline. But it is through this greater community that […]

Technology and The Monetization of Everything.

Many of us, myself included, tend to believe that technology is free. Aside from Microsoft Windows/Office, and specialty programs like Photoshop, I don’t pay for a lot of technology outside of my Playstation and iphone/PCs….or do I. I dropped by People’s United Bank in Concord, NH recently and took $100 pocket money out of the ATM, seems harmless right? But then came the ‘terminal fee’ screen. Three Dollars and Fifty Cents. $3.50. For the pleasure of doing business at their […]

Sunday Fun Day, Seacoast Brewery Edition

Let’s face it, Beer is the new wine. With craft beer skyrocketing in popularity and new microbrews appearing on the horizon at breakneck speeds all around us, the transition to a beer culture just can’t be ignored. The Seacoast (NH) Beer Group on Facebook has over 2000 members and is one of the most prolific producers of facebook content in my feed. People are just plain into the craft beer thing around here. Passionate lush’s like myself now have terrific […]

Get Caught Doing Good Things.

This blog was originally written and posted by Market Street Talent’s Social Engagement Manager Rich Collins on the Market Street Talent blog. We were recently lucky enough to attend the New Hampshire Businesses for Social Responsibility’s 2015 Spring Conference “Think Bigger, Dig Deeper,” an event geared toward recognizing and promoting sustainability for New Hampshire businesses. Here we were able to learn about current sustainability issues in business and how we can bring them to light within our own organization. Sustainability in business (especially […]

French Pastries – in Portsmouth.

Portsmouth, France? Paris, NH? Where am I living and working these days? Must I pinch myself because I spy a real pasty shop right here in Downtown PTown?  (not that PTown – Port City P Town. N’ampsha’s PTown). The disaster that was the Red Iguana, and the lunch place before that whose name seems to elude me, crashed and burned explosively in this real estate prior to this entity. The Congress Street Space tucked between the Music Hall Loft and Cafe […]
