Blogs,Blogging & Bloggers

mayo 29, 2012

I am reading the book by David Meerman Scott “The New Rules of Marketing & PR” – third edition, he writes in one of its chapters about us bloggers and our world.

So I decided to write a little post about our world..

I think all of us, in contrast, the NON-Blog, we are communicators for excellence in a different way, writing or speaking, we show our own experiences or things that fascinate us..

Technology helps us communicate more and more, something that is surprising is that those people within them have or had the skills of journalists, but for various reasons, either because they are timid in real life or not find the “issue” could not communicate with the blogosphere.

Now many of those we called timid, are amazing bloggers and of them we learn a lot from them.

Blogger not be determined how many blog we post – If you have other opinion please let me know maybe i need improve more -Thank You!

This is how committed we are to the world “outsite” waiting for something interesting to share with others.

I also think it’s part of being responsible and not “play” with our target audience, have a responsibility to schedule in our daily walk and pause to share our ideas.

Many people make money with blogs, but as an expert once said in an email: JC, everything is step by step, first started as an amateur and then professional and then expert…well now I’m Amateur..

Many times we get frustrated and say that “no one” “follow me”..Ok.. ask ourselves, as did I, I am writing the right topic?, I’m writing an interesting topic?, I’m helping, to the blogosphere? My Template is serious, for my audience?

When we find the answers is then that our blog will change…

something I always keep in mind is to accept positive and negative comments, that’s what we are exposed, then the negative things Let’s get the very best to make them a new weapon to communicate.

Blogfriend hope you like my post I am not an expert in social media and I’m starting¬† in the blogosphere, I bought the book “WordPress” for Dummies by Lisa Sabin-Wilson , I’m not be afraid to read it .. ūüôā

Remember :¬† If no one follows you…Another will follow you

I am a beginner in Pinterest and You?

mayo 28, 2012

As a beginner that I am in Social Media, I think we should focus not only on Facebook or Twitter, we must also meet the “new” apps that we have to communicate such as Pinterest, Foursquare, Instagram or Aboutme and others, and most importantly how to use them.

This time I writing about Pinterest,for me is a great app which gives us the opportunity to share in a different way, our habits, hoobies, our tastes and the things we like, and discover what you like other people and share with them things we are passionate as : Food,Pics,Nature,Books,Handcraft,Landscaping,PR,etc.

So, What is  Pinterest??  

Pinterest is a pinboard-style social photo sharing website that allows users to create and manage theme-based image collections such as events, interests, hobbies, and more. Users can browse other pinboards for inspiration, ‘re-pin’ images to their own collections and/or ‘like’ photos.

Pinterest’s mission is to “connect everyone in the world through the ‘things’ they find interesting” via a global platform of inspiration and idea sharing…Source : Wikipedia.

Pinterest as I began, although it sounds silly, I liked a lot and called my attention, so Old Fashion logo!!

If you want to get started in Pinterest is really fun, it’s a combination between Twitter and Facebook, you upload photos and also have followers, they re-Pint your photos.

Pinterest join is very easy if you have an account on Facebook or Twitter you can join easily and ready.

Which is the first step after your to subscribe,well what kind of topic you like, easily in the search, I recommend you write for example the word “Green” or the “Pets” and everything related to the color and pets will appear.

You can create your Board and Pins very easy, you can even put the title you want…Nice uh?

In my case I created a Board “Urban Pictures”, which shows all the photos that I took in the street, so spontaneous or I have other Board “Books Worth Reading” about the book that I read or reading…awesome uh… ūüėČ

Enjoy this Tutorial Video for more info :

Well I hope you like this post and help you make your account Pinterest, and share your Pin with Interest..oh you can follow me on Pinterest as JC Giraldo

The 3 Big….They are?

mayo 21, 2012

So The Social Media have a lot of Info !!….After reading and discussing yesterday to some experts in Social Media..Many agree that The Big 3 monsters of¬† Social Media are: Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.
I believe that if they are, however, I think Google +, could soon join them, well, personally I do not use Google +….Really, until now I wonder why not use Google +?

Each of the Big 3 are leaders…¬†

Facebook, tops by far the leader, with 750 million active users worldwide, according to CNET site, in the case of Facebook has a mixture of sharing our personal experiences, and also something that in some pages and saw that people uses it as a “Blog”, I think you should not give any such use; other point is Biz on FB watch this video¬† Facebook for business, and other things we all already know, every day more to surprise us all..! LIKE !

Twitter :  Micro-Blog, excellent, really, I love my Twitter, is very fast and you connect with the world, with only 140 characters, you have to think fast and make your idea or your story.
It has many tools, such as Tweedeck which is a good platform to “join” a, The Big 3 and Twitpic is also excellent for your pics , so You do not have Twitter yet? Follow me ūüôā

Some expert Twitter say it has already 360 million users

LinkedIn: Awesome !! I use it to contact my former co-workers, or some Twitter followers…It has excellent tools..LinkedInhelps you showcase your skills in the business world and work and also as a job seeker, it is important that you join groups that are related to the field of job you have or like, I recommend as my mentors join LinkedIn groups already created, and share your experiences or create your own,Polls are awesome also,¬† I DID !!! I want share with you this video from my mentor Sarah Santacroce.

LinkedIn, all connections respect the opinions of each and discrepancies in the discussions, Linkedin has 100 million members.

The most beautiful of this fascinating field of Social Media is that The Big 3, maybe shared with a single click, things you wrote or news we have, in one way or another,  the three are together and depend on each other also..

And I always carry with me to the Big 3  You see  :

Ok..I hope you like this information for some beginners like me….

The most important thing is to try, if you can not try you never know..Share on:

Twitter and My Beginnings: Some Tips

mayo 18, 2012

Something that never stops in life are the changes in all areas.

The new tools of communication we have now simplify life, but also it is our responsibility to keep us in the latest happening in the world of social media.

In this post I intend to try to help people who are not very familiar with the use of Twitter and how to begin.
I still need to learn a lot, I admit, but I think it can help with anything my own experience to start and use Twitter in a serious way in the field that we like, Social Media, Shows, Family, and especially helping people to improve their skills in the tools we have.

Ok, How I Got Started?, Although I have many followers, but I’m following many important, but if not we take the first step, we can never know and learn from the things that we investigate.

  • The first thing to know is what we want to use Twitter?
  • Who want to follow and why?
  • What we expect of them and they from you?
  • What topics do you like?
  • Ask the experts,¬†in my case I’m learning a lot of ,that they are my mentors, Niklas Myhr and Sarah Santacroce as it is very important because the only way to learn is by asking.
  • I recommend to follow for beginners, like me, only a few experts, not many,I try to do a mix of ideas from both and make my own conclusions, couple book help me..remember for beginners by Kyle Lacy was my first contact with Twitter
  • Tweet and Retweet what you consider most important, never do that “I have” to Do….

In my opinion is always very nice to say “thank you” to whom you follow and who begins to retweet your information.

I think I always must we have our own information sources to be more “credible”..

Well now I am more committed to my Twitter and my other social media tools and if you want more followers and supporters, Easy: Do it !!

I have in mind to be like my mentors as Niklas and Sarah and I will be someday!

Enjoy My Tweets here : @GiraldoJC
