I had a Social Media Epiphany (SME) this weekend.
Let me first say that most of you probably had this SME several years ago. Remember how I said in my post about men that I was a late bloomer? I wasn't kidding.
I have visited two hundred and thirty-five blogs since the Blog Hop started on Friday. Initially I felt a little bug-eyed, and I read a little, then followed, then hopped.
And then my head exploded, so I stopped. And thought.
And it hit me.
These are all connections.
And I was floored.
Each of the people who signed up for the hop looks for connection. Not like a handshake from a politician, but a greeting, a stopping-and-seeing connection.
Otherwise, what's the point? Numbers? I don't treat students like numbers. I don't want to be a number. I want to see all these people.
So then I really slowed down.
The thing is, Alex and Matthew get this. Matthew commented on every single blog.
Matthew and Alex are Social Media Heroes.
I am going to visit and re-visit. I want you to know that when I am visiting your blog, I see you.
You may all mock me for this later, since I am, clearly, the Last One to Get It.
And you can mock me and be entered to win a copy of Tara Kelly's Amplified, which is a good deal.
