Day 3 here at SMOmashup and things seems to be chugging along smoothly. Of course I still haven’t knocked #1 off of my list from yesterday so I decided to spend a bit of time doing that as well as perhaps giving all of you a few things to look through when you’re not reading here. That’s right I’m flushing out my links and trying to see what’s out there in the way of Social Media Optimization news and views.
The following list will be my starting point and everyone is encouraged to drop me a new link or a tip if you think it’s worth checking out, ’cause Knowing is Half the Battle!
The SMO blogs:
This blog is run by the hot and funny Postergirl. Her blog is very visual, articulate, and exudes the 2.0 mentality. It is updated a few times a week and always offers something different from what you’d see around most anywhere else. Fun times and good reads. Recommended for those in the scene looking for something a bit out of the ordinary.
Run by David Wilson, this blog is very straightforward and informative. What it lacks in fun and style it makes up for in thoughtfulness and professionalism. He has some good ideas and a nice understanding of the climate. I guess the only thing missing from this is getting a great grasp on him and his personal involvement in the land of Social Media Optimization. However that’s not essential to running a blog and this is one I’ll check on the regular.
Steve Rubel explores how the digital citizen is transforming marketing, media and public relations. Sounds fascinating, eh? Well this blog is a mix for sure. It’s obvious from first glance that Steve knows the ins and outs of the industry and though it’s not exclusively Social Media content, his topics keep coming back to that, but from a very almost executive position. I don’t know whether that means he’s someone entrenched in the game or just a the life of the party but he always has the latest play-by-play from the industry.
This is one of the few blogroll entries here that isn’t really about Social Media Optimization. Instead it’s much more along the lines of the whole fucking world is social, and there’s media… so where do you fall into the mix? Another person who comes across as and insider, Guy has a very nice resource for all of those who are in the marketing frame of mind. Fresh ideas daily, that if worked correctly, could turn you and your business around. It’s too bad Realtors haven’t figured out the internets yet… if they found this blog, we’d all be in trouble
What sort of tool would I be if I didn’t include the guy who coined the phrase who started all of this? This blog is run by Rohit Bhargava who gave us all the leway that we’ve taken by coining a phrase which encapsulates the entire blog for which I stand. I know how hard it is to coin a phrase and believe me, this dude did it right. On top of all that, he runs a site that covers not only social media optimization but general approaches to marketing in a 2.0 world that are beneficial to all in the web commnunity. Thx mang.
