ScLoHo is alive and living at...

Here we are approaching the year 2016 in a few short weeks and as I promised a few years ago, I am not posting on this blog anymore except for updates and reminders like this one.

No, I didn't quit.  In 2011 I stepped up to a full website and continue to publish 5 days a week at 

This blog and most of the other content on the other ScLoHo blogs live on at

The new site won an award in 2015 too.

And if you want to know more about me, here's a place to start.

The 2014 Update

Here we are in the final month of summer, 2014 and I thought it was time to at least toss an update on this blog.

In October 2011, while working for a website development firm, I launched a new site of my own and consolidated all of my blog activities to one spot on the web.

In the past 3 years I also managed all the social media for an international party supplies and their multiple brands which gave me the hands on experience on a professional level.  If you do it right, you are always on the clock, monitoring and replying to your fans and customers along with the complainers, haters and spammers.  It really wasn't my long term cup of tea, but it was a fantastic experience and I was paid to have fun and experiment.

As 2013 came to a close, I was back in my favorite profession, radio advertising and marketing but this time I also have a sister company that does all kinds of web stuff that I can also hook you up with.

The Annual Update

Here we are in the summer of 2013 and although I am no longer updating this site with the regularity I did for several years, I wanted to bring you up to date.

In 2011, I launched another site as my homesite and you can find it under at

In February 2013, I walked away from the traditional media world and took a position with and as the  SOCIAL MEDIA MAGICIAN FROM THE LAND OF SCLOHO. Really, that's what it says on my business card.  Facebook, Pinterest, Google Plus, Twitter and a bunch of blogs, (along with other secret projects) are under my direction.

So, what's new?

ScLoHo's Social Media Adventure lives on at , except it's called ScLoHo's Web World.

It's not being updated multiple times a week like I used to on this site.

ScLoHo's Web World  is one of the categories on my website.

In April 2012, I returned to the radio business and am focusing my energies on that part of my life.

I plan on keeping this site alive as an archive and will occasionally repost some articles on the new website.

Over 12,000 articles from 2004 thru 2011 appeared on this site and my other blogs.  That's an average of 33 per week.  All while working full time.
Starting June 18th, I am doing 5 updates a week.  That is 250 per year. Still a lot.  Join me over there and on Twitter too at @ScLoHo.

The New ScLoHo Website

On Sunday October 2, 2011, I launched a new website, Scott Howard aka ScLoHo at .

While I set up domain redirects for the 4 separate blog sites, like this one, you will most likely need to resubscribe to the RSS and newsletter feeds on the new site.

Why the move? Here's the answer =

ReBranding ScLoHo.. Stupid or Brilliant?

My wife said to me the other day, "You are nuts, don't listen to what Kevin says."

I had to ask her what she was talking about because, she just walked into the room and those were the first words out of her mouth.

Turns out she had just read what I posted on one of my other blogs earlier this week.

On Monday, I announced to readers and subscribers of my personal blog, ScLoHo's Really? that I was about to make a transition in my online activities. Read what I wrote there if you want.

Now my wife Kathy is a typical baby boomer who has her Facebook account and she has her Face to Face Life, and that about sums up her social networking.
Uh, don't go looking for a social media network called Face to Face Life. Face to Face life is what we did before the internet, and what most of us still do.

Anyway, here's the scoop:

This weekend I am launching a new website that will combine the 4 separate blog sites onto one website.

Blogger by Google has been my primary home for all of my blogs, even though I bought domains for each of them.

And I used to tell people to Google "ScLoHo" and you'll find 200,000 links to me.

Google "Scott Howard" and as of yesterday I was on the first page for my Twitter and LinkedIn accounts.

Due to my presence in both the Social Media world as ScLoHo and the Face to Face Life as Scott Howard, I've been working at merging the two.

One of the key elements that I have learned since joining Cirrus is the importance of being found online when someone doesn't know your business name.

For those of you that remember phone books, ever try and find a plumber in the white pages?
Unless you know the name of the company, you're out of luck.

You'd look in the Yellow Pages.

Most of us look for answers by typing in keyword phrases until we find the answer we are looking for online via Search. We don't type in exact business names because we don't know until we search to see has the answers.

In many ways, Search Engines have replaced Yellow Pages.

This idea has been in my mind for a few years and as I take this last step (for now) it is the most aggressive change and required the most work from me, mainly due to having to learn more than I really wanted to learn about building a website on Wordpress.

As I have compared the Wordpress platform and support to what we offer at Cirrus ABS, I am now even a bigger believer in the Cirrus Content Management System.

One of the key elements that I have learned since joining Cirrus is the importance of being found online when someone doesn't know your business name.

The new website is already in use with 100 + articles available and next weeks updates are partially scheduled.

I am hoping not to break anything over the weekend. A few domain redirects, links to the archives which will still be hosted on and a few more widgets, gadgets, gizmo's and gobbledegook, and all will be up and running.

ScLoHo is not going away as I explained to my wife, and I don't blindly follow the advice of Kevin or Seth, or anyone else, and I urge you to do your own exploring too as you continue on your Social Media Adventure.

The Real Power of Social Media-4

Instead of focusing on one individual today, I have three more that came to mind as I was writing this series. While there are numerous others that I am sure are also making a difference, here are 3 that I have met that are not national celebs but are using Social Media to have an impact in real life in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

These include:

Andrew Hoffman. Andrew's background in the marketing world connected him to an organization called NeighborLink. Andrew is now the executive director and has used social media to promote the faith based volunteer organization that connects local people with needs with neighbors who can help. Check out their website.

Andrew also has been using his social media experience and connections with his alma mater, Huntington University. In January 2010 and 2011, he taught a class that introduced students to the power of Social Media and the impact they can have. This fall he has expanded that to a fall semester class.

Craig Crook. Among the notable things Craig has done recently was organize a TedX event which was an out growth of being a Linchpin. This isn't any easy accomplishment but it took someone like Craig to step forward and start the ball rolling.

Heather Schoegler also comes to my mind as someone who is highly involved in using Social Media as a tool to have an impact on real life. When you visit her twitter profile and see the multitude of ways she is connecting, you'll see why she was on my short list today.

I encourage you to connect with these folks yourself.

Tomorrow, an announcement of a big change.
