You don’t have to be a guru or an authority to think that and do it. The words like guru, professional or authority get bandied about quite a lot when people are talking about blogging.

Attention please

attentionGaining attention, holding it and impacting others online need more than attending networking events, having a static website, nocturnal blog or dysfunctional twitter account. It needs vision. Networking calls for social media integration that goes beyond having someone else using the applications on your behalf. You have to be ‘in it’ to feel the pulse and add value there.
