    [Blog] 5 Content Marketing Resolutions (That You Might Actually Keep)
    He recently talked about the 5 things he’s learned from his blog fails of 2011. T he resolution bandwagon is full of false hope and empty promises at the beginning of every year. You’ve got the classic “I will lose X number of pounds before bathing suit season” and “I will save more money this year (and stop buying so many video games.)” Sure, those resolutions are good hearted but many fall to pieces well before the Super Bowl. So with so many failed attempts, why do we still bother? Because we hope one year they might magically stick. So how good are we at measuring our results?

Working with interns everyday, these have been the basis of what I’ve been doing for 7 years. 1. Exposure. It’s vital that people know there is a world far larger than the one that they live in. ’ Unless we expose people to more – they’ll never know what options they really have. Insight. Giving.

    At best you get a few blog posts, a few congratulations, and then the day has passed.  It might be 17,000 tweets, 50 blog posts, or anything that has an impact that extents beyond the community.  Many online communities try to celebrate important days.    It might be international women's day, MLK day, veterans day or their own birthday. But online celebrations are a disappointing experience.    Most members aren't together at the same time. They find it hard to be  in the spirit  of the day. Try to meet in person if you can.
