I’m Local, So Are My Social Media Heroes

by James Ball on April 19, 2010

When I initially launched this blog, I included a pretty extensive blogroll…a great list of resources and other blogs that provide valuable information about social media to small businesses. I still believe this is good to do, but I’ve restructured this list completely.

No longer called “blogroll”, my “I can’t get by without “my people”, look into these:” list is much more practical. I know more about my readership now than I did on day 1, and my goal is to provide relevant and valuable resources specifically for you.

Most of the traffic to this blog comes from the top half of Georgia (I love it when a plan comes together!), and my motivation for changing the blogroll is two-fold. First, I want to provide information and resources that the readership can relate to and access further if needed. Second, I have a real desire to support my local colleagues and peers, lending them this space and some traffic is the least that I can do.

For the most part, I know the people on this list personally. I feel very comfortable recommending these; I am happy to vouch for their talent, skills, and their motivation for writing. Many have also been strong supporters of my efforts here on and beyond.

The list is not done, and I will be adding to it as time goes on. If you feel that you, or someone you know belongs on this list, please drop me a line.

I am honored to be among this list of talented people that I also value tremendously! Each of these writers and bloggers provide great content and I enjoy learning from them online and in person. Especially, you! We have a great local community and it's awesome that you are sharing with your readers.

Thank you for making my Monday!

That's awesome! I see my dot there by Savannah! 😉 Thanks for including me. I don't at all fit in with all your social media guru people, but I'll happily accept the love!
