SEEK OR SHOUT ~ Twitter @SeekOrShout
Yesterday, one of our Blogger MasterMind members, parenting blogger Connie Roberts of BrainFoggles.com, shared this opportunity to inquire about writing for the Seek or Shout blog:
Patti Minglin with Go Girl Communications is looking for guest bloggers for posts focused on all things sales and marketing, especially related to women and moms. Deadline August 31, 2012. To respond with information or for additional details, visit sos.cision.com/seek/570471. Not a member yet? Register here for SeekOrShout.com.
This is the first I’ve heard of Seek or Shout (SOS). Connie described it as being similar to HARO. Here is a short video that explains what they have to offer us:
I immediately joined and look forward to seeing
the types of “seeks” and “shouts” are posted.
While the last thing any of us need is yet one more community to join, as a connector of talent with needs and someone who makes it a point to know who are TRUE experts in their fields, for me this one will be essential.
There are far too many pseudo-experts being quoted in the blogosphere and even the mainstream media. It is our responsibility to keep this “blind leading the blind” phenomena from spreading and to bring REAL EXPERTS to light.
