Yesterday my name was mentioned in a lighthearted article published on WSJ. To my surprise it was both on the online version OMG, We’re Not BFFs Anymore? Getting ‘Unfriended’ Online Stings and the printed paper (yes, I saved a copy).
It started by a message I got through my Facebook account from Jessica Vascellaro, WSJ reporter, in regards to one of my blog post. Jessica was working on an article about the Unfriending phenomenon i.e. eliminating contacts from your social networks, and was looking for interesting stories. She found my One Tweet three Qwitters blog post relevant and interview me over the phone. Anyway it was cool and exciting to see my name on a mainstream American newspaper. Overall it was fun experience and I even got some insight into the rigorous process that the traditional media is bounded to. Here is another example for an opportunity that blogging presents – I should add it to the list. Some other opportunities are listed in this blog post: What makes you feel that your blog post did something for you?. Maybe you can add more.
I enjoy blogging!
