This comment from yesterday from Brian Driggs hit’s the spot on why most blogs miss out on the greatest value they have – their readers – by failing to showcase others rather than themselves: It’s hard for me to posit why showcasing is so rare, as it’s been at the center of my online activities for 15 months, now. I’d tend to agree with you that it’s an ego thing for many. Paging Ego to the white courtesy phone! The things we have in common make it easier for us to accept (even understand) our differences.

[Twitter] 7 Reasons Why No One is Sharing Your Blog Content
Use social media to get the ball rolling, sharing your posts on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and other social media sites. 4. In today’s connected world, it’s important that your content is shared with others through building links. Your reach spreads as your content is shared. That translates into more visitors to your blog, as well as a likely increase in purchases. How to get links is a frequently asked question. If you notice that no one is sharing your content, that’s something you want to change. Focus your blog content on a particular topic or niche. Post on a regular schedule.

[Twitter] Letters for Noah: The Irony of Social Connection
Since then the “Letters for Noah ” Facebook page received over 15,000 likes. A “Letters for Noah” Twitter account was launched as well as a “ Letters for Noah” website. We live in an increasingly connected world where it is harder to unplug from the daily din of life. Social media allows us to interact with anyone, anywhere, who is in isolation even if there is no one physically surrounding us. A virtual presence can provide us with instant responses from anywhere but it can’t create a physical one. It’s the physical presence that forms social bonds not forged through social media.

The space, whether on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter or within the blog and comments, should be a platform where your customers feel comfortable sharing, connecting, and receiving help.

I’ve been listening: In a shocking lack of awareness, I’d seen Laura Kidd occasionally being mentioned in reference to her fanbase on Twitter , but hadn’t actually got around to listening to her music until she recently released an album of remixes in aid of charity. The only downside is that one of my favourite habits is to check out the books/films/cds whenever I visit someone’s house, which doesn’t work so well in the digital age.

They’re equally important, but too often the parts of being a musician that don’t involve actually making music can get to be pretty tedious. Keep up your website.
