The post that caused a thousand tweets


So I already had posterous set to autopost to Twiter, now I've added my Blogger blog and my Tumblr account. 

Both of which, if I recall rightly, also auto tweet (say that five times fast). So this post should probably appear in my twitter timeline at least 3 times.

Which is probably annoying.

Don't mind me, thinking out loud. 



1. Think about why you would want your content to be on many different platforms. Isn't variety the spice of life? However, most people (I have no stats to back this up) prefer to hang around just one or two key platforms, so this is a way to make my content available in whichever platform suits you best. Theoretically. But if you trawl them all, I'll be a bit overkill. Of course, you can always unsubscribe from me on all but one channel to avoid that. But it puts the onus back on you. Discuss.

2. Eat an apple today. 

3. Be nice to your parents.

What advice do you give to someone who is a self-taught freelance social media consultant who would like to take the next step and work for a company?

Depends which type of company! If it's a "normal" company you'll need to combine your social media background with something else, if it's a social media/startup/smaller company, get to know the people who could hire you, find out what they're looking for.

Ask me anything

Contemporary art: is it all just bunkum?

Art is in the eye of the beholder. Read the book I'm reading "What Good Are the Arts" and persevere until you get to the "Can Art be a Religion" chapter - half way through that there's some really good stuff. The book will make you think!

Ask me anything

Eric Idle or Ronnie Barker?

Ronnie Barker, purely because I've seen more of his stuff. They both crack me up completely.
