curator Circle0As promised yesterday, here is the #CuratorCircleEdition  4Wisdom of this circle: Take time to view the profile of those you add if you care for the quality of the content shared on G+!Some of you that show interest to be included in the circle will not find themselves in. It is not an hazard; the minimum one can do while asking for inclusion in a shared circle is to include the sharer page or profile. Also due to the maximum space of 500 profiles, others have been kept for the next circle.Rules of the circle:1. Plus and share the circle (add me if you haven't done it yet)2. Comment to ask for inclusion. And enjoy your day.2014-05-06 13:53:46501361123

Plus and share this circle (add me in your circle if you haven't done it yet).2. Comment to ask for inclusion.2014-05-01 15:21:54378271628
curator Circle0Content Curator Edition 2As I said yesterday, I am here to share my fun with people that share the passion with me.Today's Tip  Did you add people and you are wondering that no one has cared to add you back? here can be one of your issues: you did not have an attractively written profile. Make sure you add a nice picture of you, a well crafted intro and more importantly let others know your fields of interest.In this edition, I will like to thank: +notjustwebmarketing.com +not-just-web Marketing  +Vale mica  +David Oldenburg  +Blythe Ayne  +Sanchia Adolph +Anastas Georgiadis  +Ashima Dogra +Ben Capelo +Ronald Balbach +Danica Macanga Here are the rules for those that part of this circle:1.

Linda Sherman4,441The latest #BlogChat  GooglePlus #BlogBuddies   #SharedCircle  I am doing my best to keep this circle to Bloggers that are active on both GooglePlus and BlogChat. If you feel you should be included, please let me know. By active on GooglePlus, we hope that you are posting at least once a week.I first posted about this August 2012.http://itsdifferent4girls.com/2012/08/blog-buddies-google-plus-circle/To find out if you are a blogger, I first look at your Twitter bio. If there is no link there, I assume you don't blog.GooglePlus is good for bloggers so it is great if we can help each other out here by engaging with each other. As I mentioned tonight during BlogChat, I find it easiest to find your G+ from Twitter by routing through your Klout score (which I can easily get to from your Twitter name). If you don't have G+ connected to your Klout account, I won't see it and assume you are not active on G+. Some people neglect to add their Twitter account to their GooglePlus About Page - I recommend that you be sure to do that too - as well as all of your social profiles that you are active on. This way your blogger friends from BlogChat can connect with you elsewhere.Your Blog should be part of your "Contributes To" section of your About Page links. This is where GooglePlus wants it to be when establishing Google Authorship.If you are wondering, #BlogChat  host +Mack Collier has kindly given his blessing to this circle. I wouldn't use the name BlogChat on anything without that. #bloggers   #sharedcircles  2014-02-10 03:59:2611921227

Enough Blog Post Ideas for Your Business Blog for The Next Year!

Yesterday I was speaking with a small business owner about their blog which had become inactive. They'd hit a block with ideas for content and asked for advice.

I went home and started to brainstorm. Here's my first draft of a list of questions/topics/ideas that that might stimulate blog posts (I'd LOVE to hear your suggestions).

Take one idea a week for the next year and you'll still have 4 left over. I hope they're helpful!

Just over 8 years ago I started +Digital Photography School - dPS as a place to answer the questions I regularly got from friends and family on how to take better photos.

Celebrating our 8th anniversary made me a little reflective so yesterday I looked back and realised what a wild ride it'd been. In that time we've published over 4500 tutorials, had over 275 million visitors, published 19 eBooks and instead of me doing it all the site has a team of numerous writers, editors, producers, designers, developers, marketers and customer support team working on it!

From little things big things grow!

The year was 1851 and two brothers stood by a bend in a creek that had wishfully been named by gold prospectors 'Golden Point' in days gone by.

The two brothers surname was Cavanagh and they'd been digging - along with around 600 others - in their 'claim' at Golden Point for days.

Some gold had definitely been found on this particular bend in the creek. In fact numerous miners had made good - although not spectacular - money from their finds in previous weeks. 

Most of the gold had been found in the sandy ground to a depth of around 1 meter (3.2 feet) but at that point everyone who dug hit a hard layer of clay and received no reward for their effort.

The result was that the area was littered with abandoned claims - holes in the ground were everywhere, all dug to a depth of around 1 meter.

The year was 1851 and two brothers stood by a bend in a creek that had wishfully been named by gold prospectors 'Golden Point' in days gone by.

The two brothers surname was Cavanagh and they'd been digging - along with around 600 others - in their 'claim' at Golden Point for days.

Some gold had definitely been found on this particular bend in the creek. In fact numerous miners had made good - although not spectacular - money from their finds in previous weeks. 

Most of the gold had been found in the sandy ground to a depth of around 1 meter (3.2 feet) but at that point everyone who dug hit a hard layer of clay and received no reward for their effort.

The result was that the area was littered with abandoned claims - holes in the ground were everywhere, all dug to a depth of around 1 meter.

Miners around the Cavanagh brothers that day were beginning to talk of rumors coming from further up creek of richer pickings and in the 24 hours that followed most of the men had moved on.

But the brothers Cavanagh had a hunch. 

They wanted to see what would happen if they dug deeper and so began the arduous task of digging into the hard clay that everyone else had stopped digging at.

They chose an abandoned claim from another miner and began to dig.

The work was hard and unrewarding. 

They dug and found nothing but more clay.

Inch by inch they chipped away at the clay only to find more clay.

All day they dug. 

The next morning they continued to dig as the last miners around them abandoned their claims and moved on to chase their dreams up creek.

I can just imagine those miners abandoning their claims shaking their heads at the brothers and laughing at their foolhardy efforts.

But the brothers had a belief and kept their focus.

As sunset approached and after hours of back breaking work the brothers finally broke through the last of the clay at around the depth of 2 meters. 

Under the clay they found what centuries ago been the old bed of the creek and in it were pockets of gold which had been washed down the creek from the mountains over hundreds of years.

The brothers worked into the night feverishly until the light from their lamps gave up. Imagine how they must have felt as they attempted to sleep that night!

The next day they arose early and assessed their work. In the light of day the full reality of what they’d uncovered started to sink in. There was gold down below that clay… and lots of it!

In a single day alone the Cavanagh brothers found 27 kilograms (60 pounds) of gold.

That days takings alone earned the men over  £3500 which was more than enough to set the two brothers up for life.

One month later 10,000 miners worked in the area around Golden Point - and the wider Ballarat area and it became known as the richest known gold field in the world for that time.

You can bet that those who followed the brothers dug deeper than they had previously!

Reflections on the Cavanagh Brothers Experience

I first came across the story of the Cavanagh brothers while researching a project I was doing in high school and have since found myself reflecting upon it many times.

I love the determination, the focus and the persistence of these two men. 

I love how that despite the distractions of rumours from up creek that they continued to dig... where others had already dug and given up at the first sign of clay.

I love that they persisted while others followed the exciting rumours of fortune and in doing so found a fortune that others could only dream of finding.

I love that through their persistence that they not only found their own fortune but opened the eyes to others - others who probably had looked at them thinking that they were crazy for digging into that clay - to a new way.

Sometimes Success Comes Through Digging in Hard Places

There have been times over the last few years where I've at times felt a little like the brothers Cavanagh. 

While my hands do not toil with a pick or shovel digging into hardened clay there are days where I do second guess my actions and wonder if I should head up stream to start something new. 

I've seen many bloggers come and go over the years. People who, like me, saw the opportunity in blogging to build something significant - but who at the first sign of clay abandoned their blogs. 

Then there were others who abandoned their work because of the exciting 'rumors' from up creek... bloggers who stopped blogging to MySpace... to tweet...  to Tumblr... to Facebook... to G+...

The blogosphere is littered with abandoned blogs and I sometimes wonder what might have happened if some of those bloggers had kept digging through the clay.

While I know not all would have succeeded I do think that persistence is a big part of successful blogging (and success in almost all fields).

My experience of blogging is that while there have been days where I've dug into rich veins of gold and great fortune that they've always come after focused effort of digging in hard ground.___

I recently had the realisation that much of what I’ve done in the last 12 years as a blogger has had to do with building community and cultures on my blogs.

The success and failures in that time have largely been the result of the health of those communities.

I've lost count of the number of people that I've seen today on Facebook talking about how their Facebook page 'reach' numbers are low.

They often talk about 'reach' as a percentage of the overall people who 'like' their pages.

I don't tend to look at the reach stats that often - I'm more interested in how many people comment, click through on links to my site and share.... but 'reach' is obviously on a lot of people's minds and I can kind of understand why ...

A Few Thoughts on Declining 'Reach' on Facebook Pages

I posted this on my Facebook page today but thought I might share it here too.

I've lost count of the number of people that I've seen today on Facebook talking about how their Facebook page 'reach' numbers are low.

They often talk about 'reach' as a percentage of the overall people who 'like' their pages.

I don't tend to look at the reach stats that often - I'm more interested in how many people comment, click through on links to my site and share.... but 'reach' is obviously on a lot of people's minds and I can kind of understand why ...

As bloggers we often look at how visitors we have to a blog post. This number is similar to 'reach' in some ways and it is often used as a measure of success (although I'm not sure it's the best measure either).

So here's my question for those who are feeling down about lower 'reach' numbers?

What is your 'reach' like on other social media platforms?
Take Twitter for example - if you made the same judgement about 'reach' on Twitter as many people do about FB how would that compare?

My feeling is that the percentage of my total Twitter follower numbers who see each Tweet that I do would be a tiny number. I've not tested it (and I'm not sure how I would) but my gut feeling is that my tweets are seen by far smaller percentages of my total follower numbers than my Facebook updates.

I guess the reason we feel upset about our Facebook reach is that things have changed - we feel like we've had something taken away from us - while on Twitter there have not been changes (although I can think back over the years to a few changes on Twitter too that have made using it less effective).

Then there's G+ - what's our reach like there? To be honest - I have no idea. I'm lucky enough to have a decent following on my G+ account (although I neglect it a bit) but when I do update I never get any stat on how many people 'see' the updates I do. I see +'s and shares... but no reach.

Update: It's been pointed out that with Pinterest there's no 'reach' stat either. Similarly I'm not aware of anything on LinkedIn. Do any other social networks other than FB even give this kind of stat on how many people 'see' an update?

My gut feeling is that if I did get that stat that it'd be pretty low too.
Let me emphasise - that I'm not saying I don't feel disappointment when companies like FB change rules in a way that impacts me. I get it... but I guess I also try to see the bigger picture and put what we're seeing on FB into perspective.

Why Most Content Marketing Makes No Lasting Impression

This week I’ve had a number of conversations with online entrepreneur friends about ‘content marketing’ and whether much of what people are doing is missing a key ingredient.

Obviously the last 12 or so months have been all about content but interestingly what proceeded this latest trend was a lot of similar buzz about ‘community management’. 

The question that has come up in each of the conversations I’ve had this week is whether perhaps many content marketing strategies have thrown out the baby with the bathwater by focusing so much upon content that they’ve forgotten about community.

I’m sure we can all think of many examples of people and businesses doing both really well - but it strikes me that of late there’s been a lot of newer ‘blogs’ (not that they usually callthemselves blogs) that... more »

Why Most Content Marketing Makes No Lasting Impression

This week I’ve had a number of conversations with online entrepreneur friends about ‘content marketing’ and whether much of what people are doing is missing a key ingredient.

Obviously the last 12 or so months have been all about content but interestingly what proceeded this latest trend was a lot of similar buzz about ‘community management’. 

The question that has come up in each of the conversations I’ve had this week is whether perhaps many content marketing strategies have thrown out the baby with the bathwater by focusing so much upon content that they’ve forgotten about community.

I’m sure we can all think of many examples of people and businesses doing both really well - but it strikes me that of late there’s been a lot of newer ‘blogs’ (not that they usually call themselves blogs) that have been focusing upon producing content that seems more about generating ‘eyeballs’ or traffic but isn’t really that interested in engagement (or at least not much more engagement than a ‘like’, ‘retweet’, '+' or a ‘share’.

These newer blogs are great at crafting headlines, brilliant at curating feel good videos and have a knack for uncovering great stories - however I wonder if they’re creating meaning for their readers and building momentum that takes those readers on a journey or that creates true engagement and relationship.

Last week I heard +Brian Solis speak at a Melbourne event and advise businesses to 'stop competing for the moment and start competing for meaning'.

I think bloggers should ponder that.

While the temptation is to soley focus upon producing shareable, likeable, retweetable content I suspect a lot more sustainable model is to create content that MEANS something, that takes your reader on a journey, that impacts their lives in some tangible way.

The result may not be as spectacular as some of the stats other blogs might produce - but my bet is that you'll produce something that has a much better chance of being around in 5-10 years and that is a lot easier to monetise.

I'd love your thoughts on this as it's something I'm pondering a lot lately.___
