In just a few short years, Twitter – and Instagram for that matter – have quickly moved from this ‘quirky-hipster’ kind of technology to a powerhouse social media platform used to promote awareness on so many different issues. The hashtag, in all its simplicity, has been rebranded as a conversation starter. Whatever you choose to put behind the hashtag symbol has the potential of driving a conversation to the next level and before you know it, you’ve joined a movement you care about all from the comfort of your smartphone.
But is it enough? How does this platform get people off their devices and connect to people on the ground? As a blogger or thought leader, how can you effectively engage your audiences on these issues? Most importantly, how do you balance your personal and professional life/view without alienating your audience?
With all that is happening in the country, this conversation is essential. We carefully curated a group of social media influencers in our community to lead the conversation: #Hashtag Activism during Blogalicious Weekend.
This is a HOT TOPIC and we want you to be a part of the conversation! Meet us at Blogalicious Weekend in Atlanta November 3-5, 2016. Tickets are still available.
See you there!
New Year’s is almost upon us and, for yet another year, we’ll be setting resolutions. What if, we all agreed that this year, that instead of being self-centered in our resolutions, we started a good deed movement? What if we partnered with a cause and spread the good deed message on all our platforms?
Are you in? We totally are – so much so that we’ve joined forces with a few of our social friends to launch the #DeedADay movement including Clever Girls Collective, Everywhere Society, One2One Network, Latina Bloggers Connect, Mom It Forward, and Type A Parent! This is both a fashion statement and a cause to encourage everyone to do a good deed a day. Mary Fisher – artist, author and HIV/AIDs activist – designed this simple but stunning bracelet strung with 100 beads made by HIV positive and economically fragile women in Uganda, Zambia, Rwanda, South Africa, and Haiti. These bracelets remind you to do a good deed at every opportunity. Every time you go out of your way to perform a good deed, you move the bracelet’s rubber ring closer to the 100th bead. How’s that for instant gratification?
We’re taking over Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and even Pinterest right after Christmas and up until New Years day with hashtag #DeedADay. All you have to do is socially share any of the following images!
We’re on a mission to sweep the web with good deed resolutions! By resolving to do one good deed a day in 2015, you are perpetuating a sustainable, social-good model that will continue to pay it forward to the artists who create these bracelets and anyone whose life you touch on your path to fulfilling your daily deed.
When you share an image, just:

Last month we had our first-ever Blogalicious Community Read-Along! Gary Vaynerchuk’s latest best-selling book – Jab, Jab, Jab, Right Hook – has been the talk of the social media town for many, many weeks and we wanted to get to the bottom of the hype. In case, you haven’t read the book yet (and we really think that you should!), the premise of it is to teach companies and brands to setup effective social media wins by repeatedly ‘jabbing’ your followers with valuable pieces of content before hitting them with your ‘right hook’ (i.e. your big sell or ask). Make sense? We think so!
To bring the discussion to life, we invited social media marketing experts Ann Harris of Southern Social Marketing and Lynn Cooper of Socially Ahead to be our special guests for last month’s #ShopTalk Hangout on Google+. From their Do’s and Dont’s for Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, G+ and LinkedIn to The One Thing They Can’t Live Without to Tricks to Beating That Pesky Facebook Algorithm, these two powerhouses were a wealth of information and resources and super fun to boot. Watch the replay here (excuse the 30-second delayed start):
Join us on Friday, April 25th at 12pm ET/9am PT for our next #ShopTalk Hangout! We’ll be dissecting Days In the Life of several solopreneurs in our community to take a candid look at WHAT everyone is doing and HOW they are making it all happen.
The White House has a Press Pool…why shouldn’t we? We decided to assemble a spirited team of bloggers to cover the latest news briefings about BlogaliciousFIVE. Instead of going to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. to hear the briefings, the Blogger Press Pool will be reporting from Anywhere, USA. Make sure to follow each of these bloggers for breaking updates on BlogaliciousFIVE speakers, brands, panels, happenings, lifestyle tips and more. They’ll have the inside track on this year’s hottest conference celebrating diversity in social media…
Williams has a solid business background, with expertise in contract negotiations and business. She founded the Beleza Group™, an integrated communications firm and parent company of The Go To Ladies™, because she had earned a reputation as a woman who knew how to connect businesses with potential clients. She began to build brands for clients and continued to expand her personal brand. Williams took on challenging roles including serving as the National Director of Branding, Marketing and Communication for Black Women for Obama, and as the Chief Marketing Officer for The Curvy Revolution/Curvy Magazine, an organization and publication that reaches more than 250,000 women throughout the country.
Williams used these experiences, and many more, to enhance her companies’ digital outreach capabilities. Between her individual networks and those of her companies, she reaches more than 20 million people on a monthly basis across all social platforms.
It’s an unwritten rule that attendees take to social media in swarms to document their memorable experiences at conferences. It gives people a chance to share their event experiences with their audience, and people who wished they were there, can sit on their couch and get just a taste of what they are missing.
Our friends at Everywhere are doing it again! They are setting out to raise money for cancer and beat our previous Guinness World Record for #beatcancer.
