I’m a big fan of keeping my avatar and user name consistent across each social media platform. This is one reason that I suggested to reserve your brand’s name across all social media platforms. It makes it much easier for users to find you if you use the same name... Continue reading

I think another thing to add is to be succinct. Add your personality to the post, but keep it to the point and don't stray.

Love this post. Gotta start em early. Better in the garden than in front of the TV. Exactly.

Yes. I'd say use AnotherKindOfDrew, but use your photo and name in profiles. I don't refer to myself as CanarsieBK. It's just the name that I use. Crappy branding for me, but better than MichaelJonLieberman. Try gettign RTs with that name.

That is a question that you have to answer yourself. Go with whatever brand that you feel most comfortable with. You can either brand Andrew Odom the individual or the AnotherKindOfDrew brand. Whichever you decide to go with, go with it across as many platforms as possible. The reason that I chose CanarsieBK is because that's the name that I used to sign up for things while in college when nobody used their real names. Canarsie is my neighborhood that I'm from and BK stands for Brooklyn. Once I became more heavily involved in social media the name MikeLieberman was taken everywhere since it's such a common name. As were many variations around. So I decided to go with CanarsieBK because I knew it would be available nearly everywhere. So you have to make that decision for yourself, which do you want to be your brand and can you reserve that everywhere? If you can and both are available, I'd say to reserve AndrewOdom and brand yourself.

I'm getting involved with the kids as well. Next month, have an urban gardening workshop in Bushwick, Brooklyn and two in LA. Can't wait.

Thanks for the mention of my fire escape garden. Greg brings up a good point about it being a fire escape. When setting up the garden, I made sure that there is plenty of foot space for people and that the hand rails are free for people to utilize in case of fire. I've definitely seen some fire escape gardens that obstruct foot paths. Saw one that was using the ladder as a trellis.

Funny. I just started saving these over the past few weeks and have been looking for things to do with them. One thing that I found was to use it as a way to clean up wiring and run it through.

I like that idea. Really ambitious. Luckily living in NYC, I don't have a car. I walk a lot and totally feel guilty when I throw food or trash into the cans. Should really start bringing it home to recycle or compost. Thanks for the inspiration.

There was a huge stack of these in my building lobby. Need to figure out ways to use them.

Amy - NYC is great and evil all at the same time. Isn't it? You don't necessarily have to give up gardening while being here though. Big backyards in the city, yes. I'm in the East Village (love it) doing some gardening on my fire escape and in my grandmother's backyard in Brooklyn. If you're still around and have time, would love to show you my set ups. There's also some other people doing some pretty cool stuff around the boroughs.
