Great Tips From A Pro - How You Can Use A Blog To Spread Your Ideas

Great Tips From A Pro - How You Can Use A Blog To Spread Your Ideas | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it

This piece is from Conversation Agent and I selected it because I thought it was worthy of your attention.


Starting a blog shows commitment to a topic, industry, group, project, brand, etc. It establishes you as someone who can stick with a regular appointment, and has something to say, teach, and learn. There are many more benefits.


Here's what caught my attention:


**participate in worthy initiatives -- in the last couple of years, we helped promote awareness of worthy causes through Bloggers Unite and Blog Action Day each year. 


**build a tribe -- is there a like-minded group with a problem you can solve? There's your opportunity to fill a content/community vacuum and get help in amplifying discussions


curate the content of others -- say you're passionate about a topic and there is already quite a bit of great information online. You could become a relevant filter and curator of that information, the de facto destination on that topic

Intro:

 

Serendipity is for me a deeply meaningful word.

 

The more than dozen posts discussing serendipity on my blog include how we created “enhanced serendipity” at an event I ran in 2003 in New York, more details on the story of the word serendipity and how to enhance it, the importance of the “serendipity dial” and far more.

 

****One of the reasons I love Twitter so much is that it provides a rich substrate for serendipitous connections. A majority of the worthwhile connections I make these days come from Twitter.

 

One of those connections is @AnaDataGirl. We have followed each other and had some conversations for a good while. So I heard multiple times that she did a gem of a presentation at SwitchConf in Oporto, Portugal last week.

 

Here are her lovely slides ......
