When and How to Respond to Blog Posts About You Or Your Business

I think artists (and most industries in general) can learn a great deal by looking outside of their own narrow field for inspiration, guidance, and innovation. This is one such gem of wisdom I found online. It is a chart the US Air Force uses to choose when and how to respond to blog content posted about them. I use it as a reference when I am working on an artists promotional campaign. In fact, it is a great tool for any artist, business or public figure to refer to when deciding what course of action they should take when they find blog posts about them. It is very methodical and makes quite a bit of sense. Have you tried something similar to this? What works and what doesn’t?

In support of our brothers and sisters in Haiti

Tragedy is not a strong enough word to convey the trauma and heartache being experienced in Haiti right now. In tradgic times the human spirit is tested and peoples ability to pull together is exercised. The horrific images which pour out of Haiti daily also tell of the strength of the Haitian people. Their resolve to help their fellow citizens when they themselves have lost everything is something which is at once inspiring and motivating. It is hard to imagine losing everything and everyone you love in an instant… but that is exactly what they are experiencing right now. Each of us has heard the call to pledge our support for Haiti. The world is answering the call and slowly aid and relief is beginning to pour into Haiti. As I watched all this taking place I felt powerless to do something more significant. I am not a doctor, an aid worker, or independently wealthy. It was then that I received a call from my friend Bellringer. He had recorded a song for Haitian relief and he needed my help mixing, mastering and posting it. Of course I jumped at the opportunity. It is often easy to forget that each of us possesses gifts and talents which go far beyond our pocket books. If we all seek to apply our talents and expertise to addressing these challenges and ills that afflict the world how much more we could do! Anyway… I just wanted to share what I felt privileged to work on… It was a labor of love… and hopefully in some small way it can help make a lasting difference to our brothers and sisters in Haiti. Please Click below for more info, to see the video and download the song…
