Here, in visual form (courtesy of wordle) is what I’ve written about on this blog in the past year.
There’s nothing like doing a wordle based on the feed of your blog to show you exactly where you’ve been spending your digital time. It’s like printing a list of your entire Google search history and posting it… You feel a little naked for a moment or two.
Interestingly, even though this blog is about ‘Marketing,’ that word doesn’t appear in the wordle. Not even once.
If you’re a regular reader (according to Feeburner, there are 2 of you out there. Bless you both.) you know that I view Marketing as forging connections between people and other people, ideas, places or spaces. And THAT is reflected in the wordle. I believe in relevance, community, making people think and in making social media and its tools work for business.
And, as you look closely through the image, you’ll see I have a teen, I hate complacency and I think context is the next big thing. I also should spend a little more time on my blog dealing with the specifics of marketing, since most of the tactics in marketing and PR apparently are getting short shrift on my blog.
Now… here’s my challenge. If you blog, go to wordle.net and enter in the URL of your blog. Grab the image and post it to your blog, just like this. Do a little self-analysis and share the link in the comments. I can’t wait to see what you discover!
