Very funny post in Steve Crescenzo’s blog. “Are you network-worthy?”
I won’t ruin it for you. Go see for yourself.
Students, as we do our lil’ “blog networking” thing here, have you asked yourself the question above?
Steve’s comments made me ask myself. I don’t know. Probably not for many people. I, like him, don’t answer emails, sometimes. I’m hard to reach sometimes. I will, of course, try to always answer you. 🙂 You’re important to me. Others, sometimes even when they are doing favors for me, I’m still slow to respond. That’s bad.
Don’t know how many people I know that would be seen as ‘valuable’ to many people. Hmm? I’m actually starting to get a little depressed. 😉 Well, at least they are valuable to me!
Anyway, you really need to get on the networking bandwagon. And do it with sincerity, too.
Go out. Comment in other people’s blogs and (usually) you will place a link to your blog in the ‘contact info’ area. The more you comment – sincerely (don’t spam them) – in other people’s blogs, the more likely you’ll make contact with someone of like-minded interests. Use any, or all, of the links in the lefthand column of this blog and you’ll eventually find someone.
A Google search for “business networking tools” … some are great, some are really not that good.
OK. Get going. Network.
