I can’t express enough how social media has taken me to new and crazy places — places I’d never dream I’d be. For example, this month Fast Company magazine (a magazine I love) and has an article just on me and the “tools of my trade” (which is really just some of the interesting stuff I use to do my job). Amazing! Here’s a screen shot and a link to the article (and the one without typos is in the Dec/Jan print issue, page 84):
Okay, I’m tooting my horn right now and I think the article is pretty bad-ass. BUT what I really want all of you to know that they contacted me via twitter (although I have no idea how they picked me) and a strong — or at least decent — social media presence can really help your brand (personal or products). Food for thought on this Thanksgiving weekend.
