I received a few emails asking why there was no #SundayMusing post yesterday. As columns go, it was intended to be a very light, easy-going weekly post that allowed me to express less-pressing thoughts about social media while hammering out the hard-hitting news and rants throughout the week.
There was nothing light about the last few days and it’s not going to be an easy week, either. Facebook, Twitter, and Digg are all presenting different challenges to our social media marketing business and the challenges all seem to be happening at once. I tried. I sat here and looked at different topics. The column is meant to help me unwind as much as it’s intended to be read by others (maybe more so). Unfortunately, life happens sometimes.
With that out of the way, you can put your violins away. My whining is done for the month. Time to get down to serious light business.
One thing is clear as we move forward at Soshable. We need help. The blog is really getting traction and we’re starting to get more invites to events, sneak peeks at startups, and even a couple of books that we need to review. The problem is manpower. We have very little. You may notice that we have one corporate sponsor and a single Adwords block on the side that basically pays for hosting and an occasional trip to conferences.
In other words, we need help but we can’t pay for it. Don’t pull your violins back out yet – I’m not complaining. We have never viewed this blog as a money-maker. It’s designed to inform and to a venue through which we receive “insider information” from time to time about the latest and greatest in social media.
In short, we’re looking for writers. If you know social media and you’re looking for a venue to express yourself, please contact me. If you know someone who knows social and needs a venue, please let them know.
That’s all. Sorry for the beggar’s post. It never hurts to ask.
