  3. When Networking Doesn’t Come Easy. Although I am WAY older than Monica O'Brien's target audience, I still find her blog "Twenty Set" to be an astonishing source for valuable ideas. Here she focuses on how to start networking with some very concrete advice.

    For example she says, "You don’t build a network by getting - you build it by giving." Simple yes, but how many times have we all failed on this elementary step?

    She also says to, "The best networkers are people who ask lots of open-ended questions and genuinely listen. This way, you are more likely to disseminate what a person’s needs are and how you can help her fulfill those needs."

  4. The Art of Writing Great Twitter Headlines. Why do some tweets get read and retweeted to thousands of people, while others are virtually ignored?
