Still in the start up stage with this blog so it needs a lot of work. Being Sunday I tried to take it easy in that department. Usually. Except that this Sunday I was still in the “excited about starting something new” so it was more play time than actual work and I kept going back to it.
I started my Kremer 100 list. This is a list that John suggests authors make of the top 100 people to connect with in Relationship building. I have tried to do this before and never gotten very far with it. Lot more work than it sounds like. Naturally.
This time around instead of using an Excel spreadsheet I decided to find a free online contact management program. My first try was something that was too complicated so after playing with that for a bit I decided to keep looking. Found a program called Highrise. They offer a free version for up to 250 contacts and since I will be pushing it to fill my 100 quota – it’s perfect. At least so far. Will let you know.
Started a mailing list for this site with MailChimp. At this point it is just a basic sign-up. No special offer, no plan of what I will do with it other than sending out these updates. But it’s another start.
Started a new Facebook page. Before I just had my regular Facebook profile page. Want to keep that more personal so this is a page that will be for book promotion and updates. Doesn’t look like anything wonderful at this point.
Sent out a few tweets. Followed a few people.
At this stage – day two. No one knows I exist. That is okay. Most beginnings begin in obscurity. The thing is just keep taking one more step. As you can tell I am preaching to myself at this point.
