Who do you touch? Is blogging networking?

Networking is a funny thing. Working recently with Linda from Small Business Training / Cozo, has got me thinking…. When I network with people, who do I touch? Who do I reach? Where do my words and thoughts go? Is blogging networking?

I have recently started the Cozo Gold training course, and it was whilst reading the chapter on networking that these thoughts occurred.

Could I be networking with people I have never met or spoke to through a blog? Do you have to speak to a person to network with them? can it be a one sided conversation?

That lead me to thinking about the blogs that I read… do I think that I am networking with that person? Nah, of course not – it’s a one way street… or is it?

Leaving a comment and the writer responding to that comments starts the dialogue, and starts a relationship.

My next thought is how many blogs do I think “hmm, that’s interesting but never say anything?” The answer? too many.

So the next step is to start appreciating the blogs that I read,  if you find a comment saying interesting read, that’s me being appreciative :-)  if it has more words, it could be a step towards creating a dialogue with a potential customer.

"I was very impressed by Linda's determination to help and the constructive, but persistent, manner in which she identified issues and then tried to resolve them. After recent progress I was again reaching a stage where I seemed to be spinning my wheels, and she has given me fresh impetus to start moving forward again."
