I just finished an article on social networking for lawyers for the Illinois Bar Journal. In the course of researching it, I met Carol Ross, a wisdom entrepreneur and fellow Northwestern alum, on LinkedIn and interviewed her for the article. Carol’s encouragement was the push I’d needed to start this blog.
Carol writes not one, not two, but THREE blogs: A Bigger Voice; Ordinary Life, Extraordinary Living; and Boundary Crosser. She helped me “get” Twitter, and her views on the Biggest Mistakes of New Twitter Users, at http://www.abiggervoiceblog.com/2009/04/biggest-mistakes-of-new-twitter-users.html , are well worth reading by anyone who’s wondering what Twitter is all about. A commenter, Ellen Naylor, noted that she posted a complementary article entitled “Trick or Tweet: 13 Ways to Alienate Twitter Followers” at http://cooperativeintelligenceblog.com/2009/02/26/315/ ; Naylor’s post also contains excellent advice.
