Blogging: Week 10

I thought it would be helpful for me to dissect the thought processes around my first "official" incursion into blogging so I can have a guidepost to look upon in a few months.

This is not my first attempt at blogging. One of my favorite quotes goes somewhat like this, I'm paraphrasing: "How you do one thing is how you do everything," but I've somehow been able to rationalize blogging as the ONE thing I didn't have to do like all the others.

I should have heeded the call long ago, when I met a prolific blogger and entrepreneur. The first thing he asked me was: "Do you blog?" I knew then that as much as I could contribute by commenting on his posts, there was a whole game being played that I was missing out on.

On Meeting People Via the Internet


Last week's Get Some Victory newsletter laid out a simple gameplan to get to know more people. Got some good questions about it -

Hi Sebastian,

I appreciate the possibility of the web for making valuable relationships. Before some time a guy interested in marketing come by my blog. In the blog there is a category about marketing. He contacted me offering to swap cases or problems to solve. First he tested me with a case to see if he will be interested in the cooperation. He liked my solution to his case. We talked over skype for things of mutual interest and a relationship started. Although we dropped the thing with solving cases we help each other with information or advice.

This is a good case of creating a valuable connection by Internet. I wish to connect with more people like that and create a mutual beneficial relationship.

The problem I encounter with creating valuable relationships over Internet is how to frame, approach the situation so the result to be productive relationship. I guess there will be failures, people are different . I need an approach that will lead the contact in a mutal beneficial relationship or by other word to help each other with our problems concerning mutual interests.
