I Got Nuthin'

I am constantly inspired by what I read on a daily basis. There are people writing about media and music and entertainment and integrated content, and the digital space.

The price of admission to this word is to contribute. But c’mon, you have them too – those days when you got nuthin’. My as my mom and millions before her would say “if you have nothing good to say, don’t say anything”. But I feel the day is incomplete without sharing something.

So I will share one thing about social networking that astounds me. There are people I have met in the last six months who have affected me profoundly. I would have never met them if it was not for this revolutionary connector called social media.

People come in and out of lives and we do the same in theirs for a multitude of reasons. Some people you may have known for years but have never really gotten to know while others you may have known for a short time have become great friends.

The connections we make in this shrunken world can often defy logic. I have been given access to business ideas from people I admire, made great social friends through connecting about business, and I have even had the chance to meet quite a few at conventions, podcamps and meet-ups.

If you do this already, it’s second nature. If you don’t, don’t be scared we’re all just people. Damn, I forgot to quote an article or expound some intricate concept. Oh well, there’s always tomorrow.
