Connie Ragan Green’s 30-Day Blogging Challenge has gotten me to step deeper into the fast rushing river that is Twitter.Â So in addition to doing the posts, I am tweeting them out — finding ways to let people in the social media universe know about the content I am creating. So, my first #FF (or “Follow Friday”–It’s a twitter thang) recommendation is Connie Ragan Green.Â #FFÂ @ConnieGreen
I met Connie in 2008 at Judith and Jim’s Bridging Heart and Marketing Conference for soft sell marketers. As founders of the Soft Sell Marketers Association, Judith and Jim are on my #FF list too. Their association offers exceptional value. And I want to highlight Judith and Jim’s tagline: They say “It’s all in the connection.”Â This rings a resonant bell with me!Â #FFÂ @JudithandJimÂ (and hugs!)
I’m taking a course with Molly Gordon, founder of the Shaboom County community, to learn the process to finding clients who fit just right. Molly is a #FF resource. Totally outstanding.Â Molly’s coaching is bringing us to a foundation and structure for listening for the words of clients who fit just right (or in my case, “write,”).Â Molly, like the other folks I so appreciate, really walks her talk over on Twitter Â @ShaboomÂ (and elsewhere too!)
I learned about the Chris Brogan’s latest post from @ToddTemaat who had created his own #FF blog post at his interesting site, http://www.winyourlocalmarket.com.Â Todd, you might be interested in a Facebook group all about shopping local: Over on FB I just became a fan of the 3/50 Project. (They’re at the350project.net)
It was such a good idea that Chris Brogan introduced @ his blog.Â It inspired Todd in his first #FF round-up today on his blog. Todd reported that he heard about it from @HelenRappy.Â Scope out the original inspiration:Â Â http://www.chrisbrogan.com/turn-twitters-follow-friday-in-blog-traffic/Â Â So #FF love to all of you, and it’s so much fun playing together in this social media river and on #blog30
There’s additional thanks to Molly GordonÂ @ShaboomÂ who retweeted this link (below) to an inspiring piece from Anne LaMott. I mentioned her book, Bird by Bird in blog post #6. So it’s synchroninstic to see a link to one of her recent essays today — well, it’s just this amazingly connected universe that we are playing in.
Trying to get a little bit ahead on 30 days of blogging challenge, so it’s post 8 on day 7. #blog30
