Share What You Know

The Living Web

We’ve done this before … Inspired each other with our thoughts — each expressed in 25 words.

It starts with ideas
clicking keys, words in text,
audio, images, and video
connecting like minds.
Then we find
we’re connecting
online and offline communities.

Would you add 25 words of your own?

The 25 Words of Social Media Wisdom Project

Will you accept my invitation to put 25 words of Social Media advice or wisdom into a blog post? Here’s how you might go about it.

  1. Look for some social media thing you see too much or too little of.
  2. Write a sentence about it.
  3. Count the words you have written.
  4. Edit the sentence until you have 25 words exactly. Notice how your idea changes as you edit and how your feelings change with each rewrite.
  5. Add a picture if you can.
  6. Post your 25 words on your blog by July 31st.
  7. Link back to this post or leave a link to your post in the comments section. I don’t want to miss yours when I compile all of them.

It will be my challenge to a creative way to connect all of the ideas together. In a giant “25 words of Social Media Wisdom” blog post, featuring what you wrote.

Are you in? Surely you have 25 words to spare for this one.

You might remember that we’ve done this before …

    How to be successful on Twitter: Be human. Be humane. Be yourself. Be interesting. Be brief. Share. Laugh. Listen. Learn. Repeat. That’s all you need.

    What a great writing challenge to complete over my morning coffee!

    To my fellow “25 Words…” posters,

    I’m struck by how my contribution is much more mercenary than most of yours :-)

    My focus is helping small businesses succeed – and helping not-for-profits in the process.

    Maybe this redeems me?

    Hi Liz. Toady I ran across my submission to your quest for advice on wisdom on social media from 2009. After reading my 25 words, I have to admit, not much has changed in my experience.

    How about for you? How have things evolved?
