Day 3 – Say Hello to the Neighbours

Day Three: Say Hello to the Neighbours/Neighbors

Part of what makes blogging such a rich experience are the relationships we develop with people from around the world. Those relationships only happen when we engage with one another… .

I do believe that if you are being your authentic self, social media does mimic life in that “like finds like” – you will find blogs and accounts that cover all the things you are interested in. In my case, Food: Bacon, recipes, ingredients, experiences; Drink: Whisk(e)y, Wine, Cocktails; Travel, Scotland, crime fiction, grammar,  bees, corvids, nature, sustainability, social good, life hacks, culture, Judaism, leadership, branding, graphic design, consumer goods packaging, business, social media (of course!), content,  news, media, old school letter writing, stationery…and the list that goes on.

So you have something in common with someone, start a conversation, i.e., comment on something you have read and hopefully the writer will reply. Maybe it’s just one comment and a reply, maybe it’s a conversation on a topic or better yet. over several topics. Over time. with certain people you click with, you may become one of the “regulars” that become part of daily or weekly interactions that one looks forward to. Maybe you connect over the one topic, but you may discover it could be several topics, or you may get introduced to something new. Then, if you are lucky and the planets align – perhaps there is a bloggers conference for the topic that brought you together, or holiday or work travel will provide an opportunity to meet in real life (if you are so inclined.)

So Hello Neighbours! and remember, put the SOCIAL back into SOCIAL MEDIA. It will make the experience much more fulfilling.
