OK, so technically it’s not new. Technically, it was launched back in 2011 and fell off of my radar due to challenges I was having with bandwidth. Technically, it’s a “revival” rather than a launch, but I can assure you it’s one heck of a revival.
At Soshable, we strive to get not just report the latest and greatest in social media but to also be a part of it. Empire Avenue is no exception.
In the coming weeks, we will be reaching out to the team at EAve to see what’s planned for the future. In the meantime, we’re just going to be sitting back and playing along.
You can follow us at Soshable on Empire Avenue.
For the last 4 years, we have been working hard to make Soshable a fun place to check out the latest and greatest in social media. We’ve ranted, laughed, cried, and exposed interesting ideas that aren’t normally found on blogs.
We’ve made some people upset along the way. For that, I’m sorry.
Things are changing. Soshable is switching from being a content-based blog to an actual social media consultancy. Yes, we’re turning it into a business. Before anyone starts calling us “sellouts”, let me be the first to do so. I’m a sellout. I had always hoped to build something that would be a place of my passions, a hideaway where the primary focus was on quality rather than business. Life happens. It’s time to put our knowledge to work.
All of the content will remain, but it will no longer be the primary focus. The company itself will focus on social media as a marketing, communication, and business-expansion tool. We will offer services. We will consult. We will charge.
It’s been a great run. Time to get serious.
There are certain aspects of being a part of corporate America that are extremely beneficial. The money is great. The connections made, relationships built, and reputation established have been excellent aspects of my life for the last 4 years.
I admit it. I was one of them. Those people who see what Michael Arrington and TechCrunch did, how they wielded their power to influence other sites, startups, and large corporations. As a former newspaper journalist, I despised him, the site, and everything about it.
It’s been forever since we posted. For that, I am sorry, but I assure you, it was for a good reason.
Soshable has picked up corporate sponsorship and will be adding some authors. The usual suspects are still on board, but there will also be an infusion of fresh perspectives added to this blog. Rather than welcome them here, I will let them post directly themselves so as to not “spoil the fun”.
With corporate sponsorship comes room for added talent as well. If you have an understanding of social media, social networking, marketing, or anything on the Internet in general, please feel free to drop us a line. We are excited to get as much quality content as possible to fill our hallowed pages.
