This week I missed out on blogging on one of the days and it wasn’t until I read Mack’s blog posts that I had the urge to blog again. It’s true, I just realized that my motivation to blog is incentivized by the participation of fellow marketing bloggers from all over the world. It’s kind of like gym partners who help you stay focused and regular at the gym — thus, Marketing Gym!
It’s celebration time at the Marketing Gym. I’ve got to first congratulate two of our blogger friends – Mack Collier @ Viral Garden and Ann Handley @ MarketingProfs for being a great source of inspiration and for guiding their respective blogs successfuly to three months in the blogosphere. As Ann rightly pointed out blog-years are like dog-years and so wish you guys and everyone involved many more dog-years in the business of blogging! Great job!
I’ve been around for only one-third the time they’ve spent online (and it does seem like forever) but in this short space of time, I’ve been able to interact with quite a few smart, interesting and very generous bloggers. Here’s a sampling of “the community” who via their participation and example, inspire me to continue blogging every day:
* Jeremiah Owyang – Web Strategist
* Ben McConnell and Jackie Huba – Church of the Customer
* David Armano – Logic + Emotion
* Karl Long – Experience Curve
* Tracy Sheridan – Waxxi
and for so many other bloggers whom I’ve encountered through my blogging journey:
* Shel Israel – Naked Conversations
* Alain Thys – Future Lab
* Francois Gossieaux – Emergence Marketing/Corante Blog
* Doug Hudiburg – Marketing Pathway
* Tara Hunt – HorsePigCow
* Munjal Shah – Recognizing Deven
* Les Chui – Chiropractic Blogger
* Chris Salazar – Intern Blogger
* Gene Hall – Genealogy Blog
* Parker Trewin – Sales Genius Blog
…from web 2.0 marketing to Genealogy — it’s amazing to see the diversity of bloggers in the blogosphere. I look forward to continuing this conversation with all of you…
I’ve been planning a special monthly post and very soon I’ll let you guys know what it’s all about. All I can say is that it’s going to further involve the community and all its members in a much more participatory manner via this blog.
All i can say is that it’s about iDeas! (How much more cliched can it get?)
