Since the last post, I have been engaged in conversations initiated by other bloggers. Some have had a stream of conversationalists and others have very few or none. The topics were relevant in all. Some of them even talked about the same things. So what made the difference. I think name recognition had something to do with it. For those who had many post, people seemed to know who they were. They at least recognized the company for whom they were writing. Some had mastered the skill of making something factual, controversial.
One thing is for sure, this process takes a lot of time. Kivi suggest that you stay on top of what's out there. I have found a supermarket full of pages and blogs that offer information that I need to "stay on top of." I wondered, "When will I find the time to read all this information?" I shalt not sleep!.
To get a conversation going, I tried a survey. I had three responses, but one posted it on her Facebook timeline. Her re-post received 20 comments. It's funny because we share some friends. The response gave me some valuable information, however, I thought the question would have provoked more responses. I don't know what made the difference. In Chapter 5 the Nonprofit's personality and values are discussed. Could that be what made the difference?
I have to consider the questions,
- How is our organization perceived?
- Am I presenting it well?
- Am I telling a compelling story?
- What is our personality? I feel another survey coming.
Share your thoughts with me.
