  1. I think you have a good start for your plans to better engage in social media in 2010. I did want to give you some more advice to add on to some of your bullet points, especially in regards to Twitter and blogging. You have a good plan with Twitter with retweeting and sending replies to people. However, you shouldn’t set an actual number of how many you are going to do a day. My goal each day is to reply and answer as many questions as I can to build my brand and my credibility in the social media scene. I use search.twitter.com to search keywords in my niche and look at what people are talking about. That’s how I can find things to retweet and new blog posts related to my topic. I use search.twitter.com as my main place for engaging with people. You can never have enough interaction with people on Twitter. That’s how you get yourself noticed!

    In regards to blogging…I feel in order to have other people comment on what you do, you need to spend a lot of time putting a lot of comments on other blogs that talk about the same topic as you. It’s the best way to get involved in the conversation and show you care about something someone else wrote. Through your blogging, it’s vital to have links for people to connect with you through your social media sites as well. Content isn’t just about what you put on your own site, but what you contribute in other areas as well!

  2. @Frank – Thanks for the comment! I think you’re right on with your comments. I guess the problem I’ve run into with Twitter especially is that because I manage Mozy’s corporate Twitter account, I don’t have as much time to dedicate to my own account, and when things get busy, I find that my personal tweeting goes out the window. My intention with my goal is just to drive some (personally mandated) involvement with my own brand and account, regardless of how busy I am. If I can do better than that, you can bet I will. 🙂

    As for the blogging, that’s awesome advice, and I’ll definitely take it! Thanks again for the tips!

  3. Well said homeboy. Best of luck with the goals. I’ll be watching the internets with anticipation… especially for that last one.
