Blogging only about using Social Media, new trends, how to’s and such has become more of a chore than a pleasure. As I tell my clients, blogging is like a journal that you share with the public. It should flow from your thoughts and activities, be they about your company, your career or your life in general. And, hopefully fun to write in the process!
I have changed my blog, The DM Zone, to mirror and relate more to The DM Zone my Internet TV station and will now cover anything that feels right to share.
Besides working in Public Relations, I am lucky that I get to interview famous, nearly famous and want-to-be famous folks. I have the best time doing this. And, I have a gift helping make those individuals not feeling all that comfortable in front of a camera, feel like they are just having a conversation with me, sans the camera.
My videos are produced by HD Broadcast AZ video studios located in Scottsdale, Arizona. The team over there do an excellent job of editing.
These videos have been shared and have been viewed by more than 250,000 times. I know, surprises the heck out of me too!
At a recent golfing event taking place in Peoria, Arizona, I met a group of young women visiting us to play golf. Held at the Westbrook Village Golf Club, the NCAA Division I Women’s Spring Invitational included 14 teams, mostly from the “flyover states” that currently are covered in snow. The teams come to Arizona to play on the first grass of the season. They practice back home in garages or special practice indoor facilities … but no real grass.
The event wasn’t covered by local media, and I found that a shame. But the event was well run, all by volunteers, and was great fun for everyone involved.
If you enjoyed the interviews, give me a holler on Twitter – @DMCollins – Thanks!
