Outling the wonderful, weird way Web 2.0 works....
 
So today NAR announced who their new Social Media Manager is (Todd Carpenter ) and I played a teeny, tiny part with  NAR taking action to join the web 2.0 conversation (see the following post).  Since the blogosphere is all about conversation, sharing information, and helping to influence, here is an outline of the wonderful, weird way web 2.0 works..............
 
  1. Last February (2008)  I was reading a post on NAR Wisdom  by Jay Thompson
  2. That I learned of from reading a post by Lola Audu, I left comments on both posts.  
  3. Jay's post on "Why the NAR Needs a Social Media Director " prompted me to leave a comment for Dale Stinton (CEO of NAR) recomending a book by Paul Gillin, "The New Influencers ". 
  4. That book I won when I was a listener on a Hubspot Webinar interview with Paul Gillin about his new book .
  5. I learned of Hubspot through their Free WebsiteGrader .
  6. I learned about WebsiteGrader from ActiveRain.
  7. I learned about ActiveRain   from ARDELL.
  8. I found ARDELL on Rain City Guide.
  9. I found Rain City Guide because I was dissatisfied with what I was learning at the Seattle real estate brokerage (to remain nameless!) I had started at as a new Seattle real estate agent.
 
There you have it....why web 2.0 is effective!

    Deborah, I just wrote about the way in which Web 2.0 connections are formed on my Active Rain blog yesterday. I’m glad to hear that NAR has hired Todd!

    Hi Lola,

    Isn’t is amazing?

    When I read the news yesterday (from a link in a tweet from @PHxREguy to NAR Wisdom) I was excited to find out who was filling the new Social Media Manager – Todd!

    I started to think about my recommendation to Dale Stinton to read that book and decided to trace out the all my connections that lead up to the announcement. At least my teeny, tiny part of it!

    LOL, many, many others had more influence on helping NAR to become (hopefully) truly part of the Web 2.0 conversation and an agent for (hopefully) positive changes.

    Wonderful to have you stop by Lola, and thank you for linking NAR Wisdom in your AR post the day about a year ago!
