What do bloggers look like?


This video was a quick one shot at the Social Media Surgery for voluntary groups in Birmingham this evening (should say 2009 – my bad). Despite the leading questions, I hope it gives you a sense of how people from community groups feel about the help they get from volunteer bloggers and social media folk. About 25 “recipients” (real people) plusĀ  the social media surgeons who were in no particular order:

Jon Bounds, Pete Ashton, Jon Hickman, Joanna Geary, Gavin Wray, Benjamin Brum, Simon Whitehouse (see here), Abby Corfan, Phil Oakley, Watfordgap, Danny Smith, Katie Spragg, Mark Steadman.

For a more general view please have a look here. Pete shot this and uploaded it there and then to demonstrate embedding. Bless him!

    I agree with those on film! It was my husband and my second visit. First time Jon Bounds gave general social media knowledge to get us started (as we were clueless). This time Jon Hickman devoted over two hours to sorting out specific questions/problems over the blogs we have started since – and got help from Pete and Joanna for us too. Amazingly helpful. Actually feel we may be able to help out new beginners ourselves next time!
