The power of social media

The last blog I posted was a review of WWE wrestler Goldust's autobiography. Click here to read it. I posted a link on Twitter and had a couple of "twitter friends" repost the link. Later that night, I check my twitter account and see the following from none other than Goldust himself - "wow very nice of u.....thank u so much."

Dustin Rhodes, the man behind the character of Goldust, saw my tweet (because I mentioned his name in it) and read my blog. He even took the time to tell me that he liked my review of his book. I thought that was very nice of him.

Without Twitter, he would never have read my blog and I would have never had the opportunity to be in a position to where anybody would be able to read it. Sites like Facebook, Twitter, and etc... really link people together and allow them to network and connect in ways previously thought unimaginable.

  1. That's really freaking awesome! Congrats :) And kudos for saying something nice. I think to many people like to focus on the negative these days!
