These days we’re all about SoMe here at The Hired Pens. No, not as in “Girlfriend, you have got to let me borrow your fuchsia goulashes — they are SO ME!” SoMe as in “the new, in-the-know way to abbreviate ‘Social Media.’”
And as I learned at the recent New Marketing Summit, if you’re not doing it, you will be soon. I also learned that soon we’ll be able to buy cell phones that double as lie detectors. But that’s for another blog entry.
So are we just jumping on the blogwagon here? Yes and no. We’ve actually wanted to start a blog for a long time but haven’t because we were afraid that …
Fear #1: This fast-paced medium will allow typos to slip through and dissscredit us.
We just need to get over this one. There will be typos (however rare) because unlike the work we do for our clients, blog entries will not be professionally proofread. But if you catch one, let us know and we’ll give you a prize or proofreading job — your call.
Fear #2: We’ll have nothing to say.
Okay, maybe some days we’ll want to tell you about how psyched we are that the Diesel Café finally updated its menu (try the new house salad). But most of the time, you’ll find timely, interesting content about copywriting, marketing and what it’s like to own your own business.
Fear #3: We’ll have too much to say and never get any work done.
Well, there are worse ways to waste time than writing relevant, entertaining blog entries.
So, I guess what we’re trying to say is, we’re over it, baby. Welcome to our blog!
