I’m starting a blog party.
I’m opening up this blog to the community. The A Sales Guy community is a killer community with great passion and insight and I’ve been feeling it deserves something a bit more lively. To make it happen I’ve been toying with a number of ideas and none have been perfect, so I’m going with an old Patton saying;
An good plan violently implemented today, is far better than the perfect plan implemented tomorrow.
The plan to kick it up a notch? I’ve added Kapost. Kapost allows multiple contributors to a blog; call it crowdsource blogging.
In the first side bar to the right you’ll see a button that says “contribute.” Click it! By clicking on this button you will be able to add a post to the A Sales Guy Community blog. Write a post and it will be automatically added to the community. A link to your post will show up in the widget above the button. It’s that simple. A little extra exposure for you and more cool stuff for this community to read, share and engage with.
Kapost also allows you to use RSS and automatically contribute to the A Sales Guy Community page from your existing blog. (you have to create a profile to do this, but its easy)
The community pages allow for comments, sharing, and promotion. I like to think of it as an info hub. A place where great sales, leadership, start-up, entrepreneur and personal development posts can be shared, discussed, and promoted.
I like this idea. It’s still a bit rough, but I know the guys and I expect things are only going to improve.
I hope everyone in this community jumps in. It’s a great way to find great new blogs, meet a whole lot more smart people with smart ideas and of course a few extra readers to your blog ain’t a bad thing.
Just behind that green button is a blog party, you gonna jump in? Can you hear all the noise?
Kapost is a Boulder Techstars start-up company class of 2010. I was a quasi mentor for them. I’m excited to be able to us Kapost on this blog. They’ve come a long way from their original idea. I suspect things are only going to continue to improve from here. Congrats guys!!!!
