…the blog gets lonely. Thank goodness for a double-shot of @Airport_Girl’s insights to help me fill the gap will good content via a few links.
Check out Stephanie Gehman’s piece for the Social Media Examiner on starting an (effective) online community. Then click on over to Social Media Today for more from Ms. Gehman–this time on the mechanics of social media.
One point that Stephanie always emphasizes: behind each keyboard feeding a social media community is a person–might be a friend, a customer, or just someone stopping in for a look around. Treat them right (see her point #6 below from article #1 above), and you’re well on your way to a solid, sustainable community.
