You’ll probably notice quite a few tweets and Facebook chatter about an event called Sugartone, the Sweet Business Blogging contest.
The Sugartone Sweet Business Blogging Contest is organized by BizSugar, the social bookmarking site for business articles, and Bloggertone the business bloggers community and it starts Monday March 15th.
Before telling you more about Sugartone, let me share with you why I’m involved.
My blog readers know that I’m always business focused.
Even when I talk about the soft people skills involved in developing strong cross-cultural skills, it’s always with a business focus in mind.
And even though I do a lot of social networking, all of my online presence is business related. I don’t have anything embarrassing online to hide.
This is why I appreciate BizSugar which is a social bookmarking site for business articles. It’s a refreshing change compared to the rudeness or “snarky” comments encountered on other social bookmarking platforms.
The community on BizSugar is filled with like-minded professionals. I even use it to develop my business network. And I enjoy the community there so much that I use it as a news reader and write a weekly review of the articles I find inspiring there for international business.
I enjoy networking with the Irish social media community because so many of the Irish businesses are passionate about developing internationally. Unfortunately most Irish companies need to generate international business to survive. And as I’m also passionate about international business, and I enjoy their energy. So I network with a number of Irish business folk online.
This is how I came to know Bloggertone which only launched a few months ago. And their growth has been fantastic. I really appreciate the strong community feeling in this blogging community. It’s a pleasure to network with them because they understand how to be social.
Bringing Both Business Communities Together
On the one hand you have a great community of professionals sharing their expertise by publishing articles on Bloggertone, and on the other hand you have another great community of professionals providing social recognition for business articles.
It was only a question of time before these two communities decided to do something together to help business professionals marketing their expertise online.
