Little Known Ways Social Media Can Improve Relationships

brandi carlile and corvida ravenI left Blogalicious feeling really inspired and empowered…especially after seeing Brandi Carlile in concert with The Indigo Girls!” In recent weeks, I made some awesomesauce new friends from the Blogalicious09 conference here in Atlanta. Woman of all races, sizes, backgrounds, and age came out seeking help and support from other women with the same goal in mind: taking your blog, as a business, to the next level.

Changing The Landscape

These women started blogging as a hobby, a way expressing themselves, and to voice their powerful thoughts and feelings. Now they’re treating their blogs less as a hobby and more as a business. They are stumbling upon doors that blogging can open. They are connecting with communities that share their common goals and interests. They’re making companies feel not only their power, but the power of their networks. Once a minority, NOW they’re very influential within their network of online and offline friends. There are a ton of ways to connect with all of us. When we meet, we share compliments, praises, and advice. They let me know what I’m doing right, and where I can improve. They asked for my advice and insights on what they should do. Some of these women I could never connect with on Twitter in the same manner. There’s just too much noise and not enough time.

Hashtags Help

That’s not to disregard Twitter in any way. Tracking the twitter hashtag #blogalicious09, I was able to get recommendations on people I should meet, products I should look into, panels I might enjoy. I watched camaraderie between the ladies play out in person and in their digital worlds. I could see other sides of them even when we weren’t speaking. IMG_0078 These connections helped make my panel with Angela Benton and Leticia Barr, a powerful success for these women. We were able to inspire them, but only through keeping the lines of communication open and sharing our knowledge. By taking advantage of the multitude of connections available, were we able to not only make a connection in the physical, but continue to strengthen it without physical contact. It was an incredibly humbling experience. Don’t disregard the multitude of connections you can have to your audience. Pay attention!

    Cordiva,
    You, Angela, and Leticia gave a great panel with so much good information. I especially appreciated all of the technology and software recommendations that you guys gave. When I returned, I revamped my site with my brand, joined Twitter, and some other things that you glorious gals recommended.

    One question….what is a Trackback or Pingback? How do they work?

    Hey Trina, I'm glad you could make it out to Blogalicious09 and thrilled to hear that our panel was inspiring for you. What's your site? Would love to see what you've done.

    A Trackback or Pingback is a way for you to know when someone has linked to one of your articles. It will provide a link back to the site that linked to your content, and sometimes includes a summary of what the article had to say and where your link was mentioned in the article. You can head to Technorati.com to claim your blog and also keep track of pingbacks. If you're using WordPress there are a host of plugins and social commenting systems like Disqus to keep track of these things for you all. Let me know if you need anymore help on this Trina.
