Preaching From The Social Media Pulpit

I have been preaching about blogging for a long time.  I have been an evangelist and telling companies that they had to blog more they had to have a place for people to “join the conversation” and making it possible for them to connect with their customers.  Like some of the preachers of the past, I am my own worst sinner apparently.  I was reminded by people in my company that I am the worst person in the world to tell companies that they are not blogging enough or that they are not doing it right.

I am preaching from the pulpit so to speak and I am preaching to the choir perhaps, but I need to update more often here.  I am trying to get more and more content on here and those that are slinging arrows at me the most may be asked to also contribute now and then to what we are doing at One By One Media and Bloggers For Hire.  I am also on Twitter quite a bit, and I am trying out Posterous, and I am about to start Social Mediasphere TV again.  Of course, you can always come and hear what we are doing at our new radio show at Blog World Expo Radio.

Now that BlogWorld & New Media Expo is over for 2009 I have a few minutes I can breathe, and I will be using that time to try to be more involved here rather than out on the road or on the phone trying to convert the latest in small medium or large business to jumping into the social media pool.  I guess I am like that life guard that actually never swims!

The Social Media Revolution

I am behind the times on this one but I wanted to get it on my site to refer to it later.  This is a great video and worth the watch. Some of the information in this video is already obsolete.  Social Media is moving at a rate that none of us can keep up […]

Facebook Acquires FriendFeed – Twitter Beware – Google Looking Over Shoulder

I just read the news about Facebook acquiring FriendFeed.  Many are already shouting "game changer", but not really.  Facebook already has the huge networking, but it does make some ground on the folks at Twitter as a microblogging or communication tool.  I talked a while back about FriendFeed’s new look and feel making it seem […]

Social Media Strategies Don’t Matter – It’s All About The Execution

I have been writing this blog post for the last 5 years.  No, I haven’t been actually writing this post for that long, but I have been preparing to write this post for nearly that long.  You see I have been a strategist a long time in Internet years.  I have put many of those […]

Arrington and Sethi are Hatfield and McCoy

Dennis Howlett writes today about the lawsuit involving Sam Sethi and Mike Arrington and Interserve, Inc., als known in our wrold as TechCrunch.  As a disclosure I remember this riff vividly as my friend and partner Tris Hussey was involved in this problem and other friends, Marc Orchant and Oliver Starr were also part of […]

Old Media A Job and New Media A Hobby: The Problems of Free

I was reading through an article on Spiegel Online International and an interview of Chris Anderson, Editor of Wired magazine.  The article goes into detail as to the thoughts of Anderson and how he perceives the idea of new media.  I wanted to pull out some of the quotes from that article and comment on […]

TechCrunch Snubbed From Twitter 101 Resource Page

I am not sure that anyone in the tech world has written about Twitter more than the popular news site TechCrunch.  You may have a hard time picking out the single most popular Twitter post since after 38 pages of search results on the subject I lost count of the number of articles.  The most […]

Want To Be Heard On Twitter? Get Added To A Twitter Roll

It used to be that in order to be seen as an influencer or to be really taken seriously in your niche or genre, you had to be on someone’s blogroll.  Being added to a blogroll gave you some credibility and it also helped you get read by others in your group.  You got to […]

The Changing Face of Journalism or Fixing BusinessWeek

I have been a huge fan of BusinessWeek since I can remember.  I am also a big fan because of the likes of Stephen Baker who I have been reading in the blogosphere for quite some time as well.  I found Stephen’s post related to How to Fix BusinessWeek at his The Numerati blog and […]

TechCrunch and The Twitter Documents

I have been following along with the hacked or leak of confidential documents from Twitter that have somehow been sent to Mike Arrington over at TechCrunch.  I am really fascinated, not by the documents or what my possibly be in them, but how the story is being played by the folks at TechCrunch.  Mr. Arrington […]
