I’m Issuing An Amber Alert For 2010!

by James Ball on December 22, 2009

That’s right; I want you to keep an eye out for someone. Her name is indeed Amber, and there’s a reward involved, so pay attention! If you’re like me, you keep a keen eye out for anything useful. If you are also interested in social media (I hope that’s why you’re here!), then you are probably following more than just a few folks. So many are doing great work and putting out excellent content, it’s truly a chore just to keep up! I wanted to highlight one in particular today.

An excellent blog post is supported by research, doing the actual homework that it takes to dig up, and then provide supporting resources and information. As I come to the year’s end with everyone else, I am reflecting quite a bit about life, this blog, and everything. I find that the articles written by Amber Naslund were some of those that I linked to the most as a supporting resource for something that I wanted to say. More than this, these articles have inspired, challenged, and even changed the way that I perceive what’s happening as it relates to businesses, brands, and social media. I wanted to give out due credit here today. Keep up the awesome work Amber!

If you’ve somehow missed connecting with Amber, don’t let this be the case in 2010. Your reward will be in the valuable take-away information that Amber painstakingly crafts for consumption. I could write a thousand more words here, but I’d rather you click on the banner below and see for yourself. I truly believe that by paying close attention to Amber you will be better prepared and informed as you work towards your goals using social media.

If you’ll stake out this place, you’re sure to collect the reward:

Amber is @AmberCadabra on Twitter.

As 2010 fast approaches, I hope that you are taking some time to reflect as well. I hope that you find a few jewels in your closet that you can use to help make 2010 your best year ever! Share em’ if you have em’!

Nicely said, my friend.

2010 seems like it's going to be quite the year! 😉

Thank you Heather! 2010 is going to be an exciting year for sure!

I agree 100% with you…if you are a big social media enthusiast like myself, it is difficult not to have a nerd crush on Amber. She provides such great, thought-provoking reads in the field. I am very happy to have found her and suggest that you follow her if you aren't already.

Good afternoon Mike. Thanks for your comment. I knew I couldn't be the only fan of Amber's work! I really appreciate your support here Mike. I hope to see you again soon. Have a wonderful Christmas!

Amber Naslund December 22, 2009 at 8:25 pm

James –

WOW. I'm just…rather speechless, in fact. What can I say but thank you? It's having engaged, interested, and thoughtful people around me that drives me to do better, do more, and be more helpful. Knowing that I can positively impact people's work is the key and the purpose to all this stuff anyway.

Thank you so much for all the kind words, your support, and sharing it with your readers. I'm beyond flattered, and can't wait to continue our conversations into 2010 and beyond. Thanks again James. You absolutely made my day. 🙂

You are very welcome Amber! Merry Christmas, you rock…don't stop! I can't speak for whatever passion that you have for what you do, only that I'm glad that it exists. I can certainly discern a desire to truly help others get through all of this. You help me personally come out better on the other side having made the trip. Your hard work helps me to do my work, and I am grateful.

I love Amber too! She's smart but she's also such a sweetheart. :o)

James Ball December 31, 2009 at 1:05 am

The more I follow her along, the more incredible I find her to be! Thanks for stopping in and commenting Charity. Happy New Year!

Indisputably think that that you mentioned. Your favorite justification appeared to be on the web the simplest factor to understand. I say to you, We certainly get annoyed whilst individuals think about concerns that they simply donít learn about. A person were able to strike the toe nail upon the very best as well as defined the event without having side-effects , individuals may take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Many thanks
