Your Life, Your Blog: Unmarketing’s Tips for Mom Bloggers

Welcome to another week of “Your Life, Your Blog,”  where we share a blogging tip, and promote YOUR blog posts, too!!


Here is my tip for today, which is actually from a giant in the field!  I caught up with Scott Stratten, of www.un-marketing.com at the Disney Social Media Moms Conference.

Scott was such a nice guy in person, and You can tell he really does value community. There really isn’t an ounce of inflated ego eminating from Scott, and he’s so generous with his knowledge.   I couldn’t help but pick his brain about video blogging and using our expertise in our local business communities. Visit Scott at his website, and follow him at @unmarketing on Twitter.

So add a link to your favorite post from the week! For those linking back, I will tweet your posts with the hashtag #yourblog.

  • The only guideline is that it must be rated PG! This is a family blog, folks! You can share your life with your kids, a funny commentary, a contest you’re hosting, reviews, an informative post, video, anything, really!
  • Read, comment. Tweet, and stumble! Please link back to this post, so others can join in! (You can just put a small phrase at the bottom of the post, like “This post included in Real Life’s Your Life Your Blog” or include the button). Please spread the word, because this carnival will be more effective if lots of people are linking and reading. And each Monday, the links from the previous “Your Life, Your Blog” will be converted to “real” links. It’s all about the love, right?

Here’s the code for the button if you’d like to display it on your blog:

    My fave video of Scott aka Unmarketing is the video entitled, Greed. It’s the one when he’s sitting in his car eating a big sloppy burger and drawing an analogy to greed in Social Media. It was very memorable. 😉 Thanks for the link up idea.

    I like that one too. In fact, my second favorite is in his car, too! He’s singing about how to lose friends and tick off people on FAcebook. 🙂

  4. Great tips! I don’t use enough video on my blog, not because I’m intimidated, but rather I’m too lazy. LOL It’s just quicker and easier for me to type it all out and post it. But then, I love to write. I would be too worried about my hair, my make-up, my expressions, etc and would spend 100 times doing retakes of a stupid one minute video. But then, I can be a little obsessive over stupid stuff like that! LOL

    Do readers/viewers want to see more video? Is video the new direction of blogging? Should I post more video?

    Yes! Video is the current hot thing. If you can start now, Like Scott said-just go simple, you will have an advantage. People will click on a video before they read text. But I know what you mean. You could just use your webcam, upload it right to youtube and be done! (You can also link your youtube feed to your twitter and facebook accounts to automatically publish.)
