In the year 2009, for both my personal and photoblog, there had been quite a good improvement and growth in my 2 blogs, especially in my photoblog. Reflecting back in 2009, there would be quite a lot to write about and hopefully, I don’t miss anything out.
Embracing Social Media Networking
Starting my blog from a passion and interest, the growth of my blogs were based on SEO 2.0 and internet marketing guided by my friend Jack Lan. However, due to the nature and features of my photoblog, I embraced and expanded the usage of social media networks such as
- Networked Blogs via Facebook
- Search Engines & Blog Directories
- MyBlogLog & BlogCatalog
As time goes by, when I was approached to take up my 1st blogger project in the LG Viewty Smart camera phone, it was the start of many more things and stuff that I never thought would be possible that social media networking can bring to me and my blogs.
After that, it was followed by the reviews of the electronic gadgets SONY VIAO W and Nokia N97, invitation to Microsoft Windows 7 events as media and a very memorable experience was the official Windows 7 launch for media and partners and I had a great time there.
At that point in time, 4 different PR agencies in the year 2009 and everything was going great for me ! Something that I didn’t thought or ever dream of being possible ! The milestone for me was a joint event co-organised with 24seven, to lead a photography walkabout known as Snap Snap November Outing and it was great to know more bloggers especially those who love photography.
The engagements with the PR agencies and bloggers showed the power of social media networks and social media networking. This area would be a hot topic of discussion for business on how they can use to make their business grow or are they worried about engaging the social media, the power of the internet or are they too worried about their ROI from using the social media ?
