My name is Ben and I am interested in getting more involved in this whole social media thing. Particularly Social Media Marketing.
It is pretty hard to ignore the popularity of social media. I am amazed at the things that have come out and become big hits. Some things I would have never have guessed would gain in popularity. Not only have these things become popular they are growing at amazing rates.
Twitter was one of those new social media things. Twitter is a 140 word burst of information that you can get on the web or your cell phone. I originally thought of it as an interesting gimmick but have found it to be much more.
I have resisted joining Facebook and Twitter and making blogs because I really didn’t want that much personal information going out there. I have since changed my views a bit and opted to join the masses in this social media wave. It is not that I am any less concerned about my information appearing all over the internet but more that I have rationalized that the pros outnumber the cons. I think it is a reasonable risk.
My goals for this blog are:
- Provide at least a tidbit of useful information in each of my posts.
- Be honest and fair.
- Give credit where credit is due.
- Not personally attack anyone.
- Improve my blogging and other social media skills.
So, enjoy my posts and give me feedback!
