Are you following these top tweeps? If not, you should.
(Originally launched, October 2008) – Thanks to all who participated in the first ever Top 50 Tweeples contest. With more than 900 voters and 2,500 Twitter users voted for, turnout was impressive! Keep in mind promotion was solely done through Twitter.
Last week I hosted my first ever tweetup. (A face-to-face social gathering of people who interact on Twitter.) I was enamored with the thought of meeting my new virtual friends in person. As someone who is passionate about connecting, it is the natural next step in relationships I build. In social networks, especially via Twitter, [...]
Most, if not all, social media sites have opportunities where you can either publicly respond to someone or send a private message. On Twitter it’s called direct messaging (i.e. DM).
For the purpose of this post, I’m primarily referring to Twitter, however these tips can be applied to most networks. Let’s get to it…
Why might you [...]
This is your friendly reminder that the bus leaving for Social Media Station is now boarding.
To all business owners, top executives, board members, marketing and public relations gurus and those who generally like to impress their superiors…you’re hearing it directly from me:
It’s not too late to engage with your community through social media.
I can [...]

If you’d like to read tonight’s post, you must experience it in its true environment. Thank you.
I posed a question to my twosse (Twitter posse) tonight to find out what they are dying to know about public relations. Most of the responses came back, like @luckystartups, wanting to know if non PR people can do public relations.
The answer is…YES! (Duh.)
That’s not to say I want to put myself or others [...]
How many times have you been in an interview, a meeting, a conference and someone asks these six little words? (I guess it could be eight, but I didn’t count “so” or “a.”)The question always throws me for a loop. I normally start to panic…
Do they want to know about how I was homely and [...]
You know the old adage “you are what you eat?”
Is the same true for our social networks?
Reflecting on groups of people I typically surround myself with (i.e. not in social networks), I see many similarities. Whether we share similar interests, culture, hobbies, jobs or even looks (yes, it’s true) things are, well, similar. This is [...]
Welcome to a BAD day–Blog Action Day, that is.
I normally blog about connecting opportunities and various social networking tips and tools. As I reflected on what I wanted to blog about for Blog Action Day 2008 I knew I wanted it to be meaningful and most importantly, connection-oriented. While Blog Action Day is one day [...]
First of all, get your minds out of the gutter. This is a serious blog about a serious, and growing, phenomenon– those who converse via technology with multiple people at the same time (i.e. polyconversationalists). That’s right–participating in three, four or even more conversations taking place at the same time.
Some of you (who I’ll call [...]

My whole body shook with trepidation. I woke up at night having cold sweats. The day of judgment was quickly approaching. @PRsarahevans’ unofficial contest for the top 50 tweeple to follow on Twitter was ending.
Logic dictated otherwise. I can easily choose 50 people better looking then me on twitter to follow, just to [...]
Thanks to @PCfirestorm for designing logo!
Thanks to all for playing, this was a FUN experience. With more than 900 voters and 2,500 tweeples voted for, the Twitter community definitely used their voice! I’m already looking forward to the 2009 contest.
Are you following these tweeps? If not, you should! Voted for by their peers, the Unofficial Top 50 [...]
I love using up all of my energy each day and hitting the hay thoroughly exhausted. I’m talking about thoroughly and completely 100% brain-will-no-longer-function, tired. Where do I spend my valuable energy? Forming relationships and connecting good people with other good people. How do I do this? Through a combination of social and physical networks.
It’s no easy accomplishment to grow [...]
I wonder what YOU think about using repetition as a tactic in social media. I wonder what YOU think about using repetition as a tactic in social media.
Seriously though. A follower of mine made a good point today. She said something like “Sarah, while you are awesome and wonderful in so many ways, you tend to repeat yourself a [...]
You’ve taken the first step. Signed up on social network sites, found a few people to friend/follow/buddy. Now what?
Found yourself staring at the screen or watching other people’s conversations?
I know. I know. It’s weird. It’s like that feeling you get when you’re at a party, see two people talking and want to jump in the [...]
