When I started finding out about social media, I read the blogs and followed the Tweets of leading practitioners. Their practicalities swiftly got me going.
Eighteen months later, I’ve got a new circle of teachers and influencers. And this time they are a lot closer than Silicon Valley. They are my family, friends and colleagues who are influencing me because they do what they want with this social media kit without having read the blogs and followed Tweets like me.
So ask yourself? Are you so absorbed by the people in your Google Reader that you are neglecting to learn the lessons from those closer to home? Or, literally, at home.
Why I now learn from my family, friends and colleagues
