When this opportunity came my way I couldn't help but jump at it. I'm all about the fabulous bloggers who've been there for me. And there are many more than five but, let's keep it simple and talk about just five, today.
ONE: Denise Wakeman - of The Blog Squad and many, many other projects. Denise has been a mainstay in the blogging world for as long as I and has helped more newbies understand social media, than I can count. She mentioned on LinkedIn today that she does a lot of free consulting - and she wasn't bragging or looking for kudos. She was recommending that everyone support others as they move along the path to success. I know she's always been there whenever I have a question.
TWO: Toby Bloomberg - Toby is one of my BFFs! Diva Marketing is a testament to being focused on excellence. Toby shares outstanding content on marketing and social media and truly creates an interactive environment. Her book, Social Marketing GPS, is the only one of its kind - written entirely on twitter, about twitter. Free downloads are here.
THREE: Michele Miller - Michele writes the WonderBranding blog and is a partner in Wizard of Ads. Honestly, not only is Michele knowledgeable about marketing to women beyond any level I can compare, she's personable, she gives a mean presentation, and she lives life to the fullest. Plus, she loves her dog. It doesn't get better than that. When she blogs, I listen.
FOUR: Caroline Golon - Author of the Romeo the Cat blog. I met Caroline a couple of years ago and we clicked because we both love pets. But, Caroline works hard to do more than just chat about her cats. She raises money for rescues and shelters and in the two years that I've known her, I've come to admire her and respect her for her commitment and devotion to pets. We founded BlogPaws together and, together, we will continue to help pet bloggers all over the world save more needy pets. [this is one of my favorite pics of me and Caroline and my Tom]
FIVE: Bill Ward - AKA Dr. 4Ward, is a master marketer. Bill was a client, let's make that announcement right away, but truth is he took what social media skills we taught him and created the most fantastic blog ever! He's a professional in marketing and also a professor of marketing. He gets it, big time! I love reading his posts and following him on twitter. And the way he signs off of his blog posts is pretty intriguing... "keep digging for worms." You'll have to visit his blog to figure out what that means.
I could go on. I could talk about a dozen more bloggers. I could do this every week. Maybe I will...
