With 10 million Twitter followers, this guy knows social media. (The guy in white, on the left.) 

Not only is Pope Francis the most talked about name of 2013, his twitter handle @Pontifex ranks in the top-five “top words” on the World Wide Web.
The Austin, Texas-based Global Language Monitor combs the web and ranks the words, phrases and names that get the heaviest and widest usage in the English language worldwide.

My goal was to embed audio in a recent news story.

I’ve been inspired by newspaper’s being creative and adding the richness of sound in their text stories.

My story was filled with emotion. It focused on people of faith cremating loved ones and burying the remains in memorial gardens on church grounds.

I recorded the interviews and intended to embed the files, hosted on Soundcloud, into my news story. It was as simply as hyperlinking the text to the site. Not hard, but alas a hiccup on our website screwed up the plan.

A tentative Plan B is to instead feature the audio on a blog post.
