I Love Bloggers

03/29/2006

Kisses I love bloggers. Really I do. Even those A-list bloggers who pretend that they are not..don't want to be and are stepping down from their A-list bloggy towers. Even those bloggers who sometimes get on a rant and want to 'save the blogosphere' from itself. Even the geek bloggers and the mommy bloggers. And of course the seniors like Millie and Ronnie.

Why do I love bloggers? Most. Most. Most. Bloggers are ... curious people who are in a continuous learning mode. They like to push the envelope. They're brave about sharing themselves and their ideas. They're friendly, generous and kind. And they love to talk about blogging! (My non bloggy friends will only let me talk blogs for seconds. Except Max of course, who listens most of the time. Tho I think that's because he knows he'll end up with doggy chocolate kisses!).

: Don't tell me about the bloggers who are mean, closed minded and evil. I know all that. Read the first words above Most. Most. Most.

For the students at Bentley College who might ask, "What does this have to do with marketing?" It's part of the networking game babes. It's all about the Corner Grocery Store relationship. It's all about the conversation. If I like you and you like me we're more likely to do business together, pass along referals, serve as a resouce. Call it Web 2.0 Networking or any thing you like ...  Read Scott's, Pothole on the Infobahn, Top Ten Questions on Web 2.0 very funny.

Read Carol's, Driving in Traffic's take on the Atlanta Biz Blog dinner at Grape at the Forum. And the generous post by Josh at hyku (Josh has links to all) and the Diva Potato Chip Girl who brought along a cute non bloggy friend to dinner because she didn't know that bloggers would totally love her - even without samples of Potato Finger Chips! Jory, Lisa and Elisa ... I see an Atlanta BlogHer contingency in our future.

Toss of a pink boa Pink_boa_12to Teresa & Josh thanks for pulling this together!

This is networking the "C-Generation" style. Divas & Divos, it's buzz word time .. taking a drink of the Kool Aid .. throw in some gin or vodka or tequila if you must.

C - Generation: People who create and consume their own content while creating community.

Oh, one more reason to love bloggers...most bloggers...they're just fun!

I agree with you on the fact that blogging is a great way to network. I think probably most people whether they realize it or or not, start blogging to expand their network. I guess in in a way you could say blogging is the "virtual water cooler" Great article and point well taken!

Jeez, now I really, really wish I could have been in Atlanta with you. I so desperately love blogging and bloggers (most) too. I have gotten so many positive experiences from blogging (like this trip to Australia). It's amazing. I count a lot of these new friends as people I sincerely care about and most I've never even met. Right Toby? Virtual water cooler indeed!

There are only two non bloggers that are interested and will listen to me talk about blogging. The others just do not want to know or even be polite and listen.

Blogging is an important part of my life and I feel badly when they show no interest. I have to catch myself when I want to share something with them. There have been times when one particular friend has cut me off in the middle of a sentence and said, "tell me about it later." How rude!!!

It seems only bloggers really listen to bloggers.

I'm very new to blogging - just getting started. And, I freely admit I'm a bit of a Luddite when it comes to technology. But, I love to learn and I see so much about how blogs really build relationships and community. So, if an "old girl" like me can "get it" many more can. Keep spreading the word!
