My Next 100 Posts

Cutout Starting today, I will dedicate my next 100 posts to a specific mission: helping you grow the value of your social media and social networking efforts. I will post specific strategies, tactics, tips, and resources to help you develop your skills and abilities in these areas, particularly insofar as these might help you develop your personal brand, build business for yourself or your organization, or otherwise perhaps be helpful to what interests you.

Your Help is Required

You know me. I can write and make media until the cows come home. But I’m not doing this for myself. I’m doing it to offer something to you that might be useful or at least thought-provoking. To that end, I’d like your ideas on what you might want covered in this series as well. Some of you will just tell me to write what I’m intending to write, but that’s obvious. Instead, are there parts of the puzzle that you want me to talk more about? Are there ideas where you pretty much have most of it, but can’t seem to make it work the whole way? I’ll offer whatever I can.

Guest Writers

I’m going to ask some of my friends to contribute to this project as well. Why not? I am fortunate enough to hang with some of the smartest people figuring out this social media stuff. Why not ask them to contribute something to the pot luck. More social that way. Right? So if you’ve got some favorites in mind, or if you read a few of my posts in this new series and have a post to contribute, by all means, please do so. Email me directly (information is in the sidebar at [chrisbrogan.com]).

So what do you think? 100 posts in a row of my best, and of friends from around the socialmedia verse. And no, not just text posts. We’ll mix it up with some audio, some video, etc. We’ll do some sampling of some of the good stuff out there, as well as some dips into the Rockstars page.

Oh, and if that’s not enough, at the end of the 100 posts, I’ll reveal a new site design, for those of you who actually come to the website itself, instead of subscribing to the RSS feed.

One Request

I’m going to ask one thing from each of you who come by and read the site. Consider it a holiday favor. I’m going to ask that you consider blogging a brief little post pointing to my site to point out the 100 Social Media Posts series, and if you like what I’m doing, consider encouraging your audience to stop in and check it out.

And thanks! I look forward to 100 interesting posts!

    Cool, I think this is awesome.

    There are a couple of things I’ve been thinking about lately, actually, and would love to hear your thoughts.

    Firstly is how you go about building conversations and community. I know this is quite a vague topic, but especially after listening to episode 79 of Six Pixels of Separation, it really got me thinking. How do you get comments and build a community around your blog?

    Second question is how you balance the personal and ‘professional’ parts of your life in your online brand. Personally, for my blog, I won’t want it to become too much of a personal diary. But at the same time, I want it to be real, and not become too much like a magazine/newspaper column. So how do you balance that?

    Hope you get where I’m coming from. =).

    Nice Idea,
    I’m waiting for your thoughts on everything and specially about a social and community network of people united for a healthy and specific goal:as quite smoking for example.
    would that work? instead of the reward of any community online (avoid loneliness and boredom…) the reward is you healthier…
    I’m developing a site with that purpose right know…

    We’re BOTH going to be having fun – coz just yesterday, I spent 2 hours jotting down notes for 32 ‘pillar’ articles on my blog’s new theme – ‘Blogging for Influence and Attention’.

    Looking forward to writing and reading a lot in December :)

    All success

    Wow! 100 posts from Chris Brogan on helping you grow the value of your social media and social networking efforts? It’s like winning the lottery!

    As you’re compiling post ideas, I’d love to hear your thoughts on how social media sites are more valuable when working with one another, as opposed to competing for market share. Obviously, the ability to add and develop applications keeps Facebook relevant and means that everyday there are great new features. I can import my RSS feed, Flickr, draw data from my website, even open my MySpace profile within Facebook.

    Moving forward, do you feel that 3rd party applications working within popular social networks will become as common place and necessary as a company website is now? If so, what makes a good social media application? Is it enough to create something that engages conversation, or should it serve some sort of mechanical purpose, as well?

    As always, you rock!

    Chris,

    Great idea for a series! My audience is small to medium-size independent retailers. I’d love to see something on how a small business can use social media. I’ve written several “generic” posts on the topic, but I’m having a hard time finding specifics.

    Keep up the good work.

    Thank you so very much for this effort. I have been asking for a few months “where’s the ROI with SMO?” I will share this with a friend in marketing that has just discovered all of this.
