Authentic blogging buzz… in the flesh
October 13, 2007 – Libby Davy – Print
Starting to see some more of the interconnected magic we get from blogging and other social media. Good to see others benefiting from the distribution of our ideas about “What’s a good blog?“.
But the real connection here with Ron Tanner was made by real people at a live event with Will McInnes and the divine Sarah James, marketing and events consultant extraordinaire. There’s simply no substitute for face-to-face human contact…
(and PLEASE can we have another word for it besides “offline”! Cyber-punk writers like William Gibson emphasise words like flesh as opposed to virtual. I guess we do go to “press the flesh” at networking functions.)
Will reinforced our advice about the power of blogging by saying: “If I was starting out in business again I would simply use a blog”, or words to that effect. Who needs an expensive, complicated website? Not most SME’s that’s for sure. Perhaps Will might want to drop in here and qualify or clarify that statement…
Thanks for the plug Caspar & Tanner. Thanks for some awesome reality checks Will. Thanks to all for helping Authentic Blogging find its place and people.
