You are what you do online
Surprisingly, there are still too many people today who think that websites exist in seclusion from the rest of the web. You cannot just put up a website, do a bit of SEO then follow the "people will come" marketing model from thereon outward. You need to have a web presence, as broad as possible. You need to be on twitter, pinterest, facebook, digg and all the other sites that are relevant to your vertical. It's a great idea to be active on forums and comment on blogs. Honestly, if you're going to have a website you have to love the web, love being active online on as many websites as you have time for.
So here's where I link to all the social activity I engage in online, first as a way of inviting people to connect with me (if that's what you want to do) and second as a way of showing people how active you at least ought to be online. I don't honestly consider myself that active online (I like to spend time outside, believe it or not and I routinely disconnect for a break as I think this is healthy.) But here is where you'll find me online:
Connect with me for business or social or see what I'm up to:
Linked In [+] Facebook [+] Twitter [+] Quora [+] Google + [+] CNet [+] Flickr [+] Tumblr [+] Pinterest [+] MyBlogGuest [+] Disqus [+] Ezine Articles [+] SEOMoz [+] BizSugar [+] Ourkids.net blog [+] Stumbleupon [+] Youtube [+] Klout [+] Squidoo [+] Spoke [+] Ideamarketers [+] Sitepoint [+] Digg [+] Flippa
Most of the writing I do online is fairly perfunctory stuff but occasionally in this business you get to spread your wings a bit and write something you really enjoy or are even, dare I say, a little bit proud of. Here are some examples:
