I use “we” in a collective sense, since I probably wouldn’t be in my 5th or 6th year of publishing without you. Yeah I’m pretty sure without your intellectual comments I’d grow weary. And I’m certain that if I didn’t see some of the mindless and humorous ones I’d have long since regressed to a newsletter only my mama reads.
Have a glass of champagne, or celebrate in whatever way you see fit. Heck, while you’re here… how will you celebrate your victory?
I’m now following some people I’ve tracked in other forums (video, RSS), but never thought to stalk on Twitter. For example, the Scobleizer (Robert Scoble), who needed the plug given his paltry 100K followers.
Not sure how I landed on the top of a list that includes Ryan Seacrest, but I’m flattered nonetheless. Who’s gonna tell Steve that he missed Daisy Whitney?
Do you know that sickening feeling when you realize something important is happening via social media, and you don’t know where to start? You may call me a Neanderthal, but I like to think I’m a “medium-fast follower.”
So here’s my social media “Keeping Up With the eJones” history (at a Glance):
In 1991 my friend Damon put his e-mail address on his business card, and I laughed.
I can’t remember anything that happened between 1991 and 2005, but they tell me there was a bubble.
In the fall of 2006, the techies in my office suggested I post videos on YouTube. I was like, “whatever. Revver shares advertising revenue.”
I think I discovered Linked-In around then, and have been plagued by former salespeople since. Still can’t decide if I should be Kevin Nalty (marketing guy) or Kevin Nalts (video junkie).
