I’ve begun to notice that carving out a comfortable niche in Social Media is a lot like playing Tetris. The first piece comes down and you think, “Oh, okay, I’ll rest that one on its side.” Then the next piece comes down, and its one of those darned “L” shaped pieces. “Well, I’ll put that over in the corner,” you say. Then more and more pieces start falling down. You meet a new person. You join a new chat. You go to a new event. You learn about a new technology.
I’ve always been terrible at Tetris. However, some pieces have fallen in such that I think I have a row put together.
The core of my Social Media existence really revolves around the chats that I participate in. I have met most of my friends via chats, and then via friends of friends. I started attending chats because they had to do with various facets of my own professional life. The sort of weird thing about being an agency woman in this Social Media world is that everything applies to you, from news about new graphics technology to news about virtual tradeshows to Social Media itself. Trying to write a cohesive blog about, well, everything, has been a bit challenging for me, and I really haven’t been able to focus on just one thing that would sum it all up.
So, I was thinking about the #30Thursday thing. I was thinking about what people liked about those posts, what I enjoyed about doing those posts. I was thinking about how I still want to be a librarian, even though I love my current profession to pieces. And those are the Tetris pieces that came together.
So, starting tomorrow, my blog is going to become a library of morsels built around my chat schedule. As the librarian, I will gather materials to share with you, and I’ll say my bit about why I think they are useful. Submissions will most gratefully be accepted, and if you wish to start writing blogs specifically for that purpose, you can look at my new editorial schedule so that you can plan things out.
My mission is to learn as much as I can so I can offer the best service to our clients, and my mission is to provide help and resources to my Social Media community. I think that the opening of my library will accomplish both – it will motivate me to read as much as I can about different facets of the marketing world, and it will also provide me with ample material to share with you all.
Welcome to Margie’s Library of Marketing Musings and Morsels!
