I’ve been in marketing for years, more years than I care to admit actually, so it should be a breeze to design a blog that reflects who I am, what I do, and how I do it, right?
Wrong? Yup, wrong. Instead, I’m stuck in Kubrick Limbo using the ‘big blue’ default Wordpress template until I can do for myself, what I seem to do so effortlessly for others.
This past Saturday, January 23rd the first ever WordCamp Boston was held at the Microsoft NERD Center in Cambridge, MA. It was a full day of sessions for every level of WordPress user out there, from blogging newbies to advanced programmers.
But even more notable than the topic at hand, was the vibe. Not only was the day filled with knowledgeable speakers and equally as interesting attendees, but also in attendance was an amazing social consciousness.
So much to do, so little time. These are are the challenges of a pressed-for-time marketer with Wordpress blog maintenance issues.
Twitter requests that SocialToo discontinue a popular feature; the auto-unfollow. Wait, what?
Today I received an email from SocialToo, a social media management tool that I subscribe to. If you’re not familiar with them, this is how they describe themselves on their website “SocialToo helps you manage Twitter and Facebook and unclutters your stream and Social Graph so you can focus on what’s most important – relationships!”
And that’s exactly what they do, but Twitter, has asked them to stop.
If your plan is to use Social Media to support your business or your personal brand then participation is the key.
So, put on your party hat and build up your nerve to make some new friends. Here are 3 easy ways I’ve found to successfully interact online.
