Being among Twitterati – What it takes and what it means?

First the good news..

The team at SheroesIndia wrote a post on “Must Follow Woman Influencers on Twitter” . It was a pleasant surprise to feature in that list among august company like Tanvi Gautam @tanvi_gautam , Ankita Gaba – @ankitagaba , Lakshmi Rebecca @lakshmirebecca , Kalki Koechlin @kalkikanmani , Gul Panag @GulPanag , Meeta Sengupta @Meetasengupta and Kiran Manral @KiranManral

The post starts off with “There are tons of women on Twitterati making their mark. SHEROES list down a few Indian women who are impacting the space in a massive way“. Being included as ONE among 20 Indian woman is indeed wonderful. I do follow many of them on Twitter, and I know that they are doing their bit and best to make a difference in their sphere of influence with their tweets.

Personally, this is the second time I feature in a list among Twitterati. The first one was in 2012 when Dr Tanvi Gautam create the first ‘epic list’ of 50 Indian Woman to follow on Twitter

Her list in her own words was about “A dedication it to all women thought leaders from Asia, not just from media and film, not just the corporate world but all the ones that are making a difference in their own way.”

Even today, the list is as relevant as it was 2 years back because the women from that list continue to make a difference in their own way. Some of the women who find a mention are
Kiran Bedi ‏ @thekiranbedi
Sairee Chahal ‏ @Sairee
Sania Mirza-Malik ‏ @MirzaSania
Kiran Mazumdar Shaw ‏ @kiranshaw
Sagarika Ghose ‏ @sagarikaghose
Azmi shabana ‏ @AzmiShabana
Anupama Chopra ‏ @anupamachopra
Rashmibansal ‏ @rashmibansal
Barkha dutt ‏ @BDUTT
Jessie Paul ‏ @jessie_paul
Naina ‏ @Naina
Sucheta Dalal ‏ @suchetadalal
Rujuta Diwekar ‏ @RujutaDiwekar

Being featured amidst such amazing woman was indeed a a great honor and a humbling moment. It makes you happy, get attention (both in the real world and virtual world) and is extremely gratifying. Being in the spotlight makes me happy. Recognition is a great motivator in Social Media and in life.

Interestingly both the lists have several common names too!

But that’s not what this post is about? It is about my views on Why such lists are important? Why these women find a spot on these lists? And what it takes to be here?

So first.. Why such lists are important?
(1) They bring together in one place some awesome women so anyone can follow them, read and hear their views, opinions and perspectives on one / many subjects. I know I’ve connected with many of these women and learned immensely from their tweets / personal interactions
(2) They put ‘women’ in the spotlight and that is extremely important because it motivates, it inspires, it sets an example to more women
(3) They enable fostering networks and relationships amongst women and that is indeed a powerful force to reckon with – which can be the catalyst and harbinger for the cause and voice of many women’s issues.

Why these women find a spot on these lists?
(1) They are genuinely inspiring in what they share and do – Just follow them, and you’ll know why they’re on that list
(2) They are genuinely trying to make a difference with their words / tweets and shares on Social Media
(3) They are passionate about specific causes – And continuously support them

And what it takes to be here?
(1) Time - In today’s day and age, the most precious asset is “time”. And any serious Twitter / Social media user would know that being active on Twitter takes time and energy (which many times comes at the cost of letting-go many other things in life – specifically if you are a woman!), especially if you intend to be on Twitter for the long haul. Almost all these women are regular, active and serious Twitter users, so they are giving it time, focus and attention
(2) Willingness to share and speak up – Almost all these women are not shy to honestly share their life experiences, personal stories of success or failure, views, opinions, perspectives on one / many issues. So they speak up and share when given the opportunity, and that only helps the cause of women in terms of inspiration and bringing to the fore-front many critical and real issues
(3) Positivity - Again almost all these women are extremely positive, optimistic and hopeful (most of the times) while being conscious of the realities of today – especially in the context of women’s issues, empowerment and endowment
(4) Value - At the end of the day, Twitter is a free social media platform. While being free to use, any Twitter user has complete freedom to choose whom he / she will Follow / Unfollow. So your tweets should be of “value” to anyone who is reading, and almost all these women continuously share valuable content / tweets

And yes, before I forget another pleasant surprise came my way a few days back. The kind folks at Femspiration sent my way a #FemTribute .
FemTribute
As I sign-off, I’d like to say Thank you to all those who create these lists, and to all the women who continue to make a difference in their own way , in their own sphere of influence!

How to be the most organized person in this world?

So I’ve set a milestone of sorts on this blog.. From consistently posting at least 1 post / week for 32 weeks, I DID NOT publish a post last week.. As I look back to connect the dots on why I skipped the post, I came up with a zillion excuses.. No time, busy at work, too tired, .. etc.. All lame I agree, because I did find the time to do what I wanted to (both professional and personal).. On deeper introspection, I recognized that I had become a tad bit disorganized for my own good.. Just when I wondered what I could / should do, I came across this comprehensive solution.. I am yet to apply fully, but felt it was timely and appropriate to share on my blog for the benefit of all my readers..

MORAL of the STORY – Stay Organized, Stay Organized, Stay Organized….

Infographics 101: What? Why? How?

What are Infographics?

Information graphics, or infographics as they are more often called, are a great way to convey complex information clearly and concisely [Src: http://www.problogger.net/archives/2011/09/16/blogosphere-trends-using-infographics/ ]

Over the past few weeks, I’ve read hundreds of infographics, and have enjoyed reading most of them. One, it is for very good reason that the adage A picture is worth a thousand words was coined. I truly understood the “power of images” now. Two, infographics convey a lot of information in a simple, easy to read and easy to comprehend format. Three, I’ve been tasked with creating one at work.

Since I had to create an infographic, I looked for resources on any guidelines, tips, tricks, best practices and advice on “How” to create one. Dr. Google threw up a lot of content. Sharing in this post the links I found useful

Viral Content | A Marketer’s Dream, Dare, Delight or Doom?

“Viral Content” – Those 2 words can be the dream, dare, delight or doom for many a marketer.

A dream because you aspire for it

A dare because you can’t really say for sure if your content will go viral

A delight because if it does, then you are bound to be a hero / shero of some sort, in some circles

A doom because if it does not, then you are bound to be viewed with a critical lens, in some circles

And the reality of today is that “viral content” is probably the fastest & most cost-effective way to get your message out in the market place.

There are ample examples of content gone viral that it must seen easy to repeat the formula. But it is not so simple…

In this post, I am sharing from my personal experience as a content consumer what truly differentiates viral content from the rest

(1) A catchy compelling title : In today’s day of explosive content, you need to have a title which compels a reader to stop-by your content. The title has to be unique, inviting, enticing and engaging – And most important have mass appeal! Phew – Tough one to crack!

(2) Touching an emotional chord with a reader : From my personal experience, almost every piece of viral content that I’ve come across touched an emotional chord with a reader, i.e., it brought out a deep human emotion in a reader – joy, surprise, fear, contempt, disgust, sadness or anger

(3) Timing of your post : The timing of when you publish your content is critical, and surely acts as an enabler in riding with current trends and sentiments.

(4) The Zing and Zest of the post itself : I mean the content itself has to be unique, new, relevant, positive and refreshing in its message and in articulation. Pictures / Videos are definitely more effective, but there are blog posts and even tweets which have gone viral, so it really depends on the content

In this post, I’m sharing a round-up on the many views / perspectives written on the subject of “viral content”. You’d think after reading all of these – I now know the magic mantra and am on my way to create the “viral content” of tomorrow. How I wish! :) In spite / Despite so much written on the subject, this is a tough one to crack, and even all the “Content Gurus” don’t seem to have a consensus.

Nevertheless, let me share the posts..

HOP, JUMP and Click-Over to these TOP-ular Blogs

Blogging has become a very integral part of my daily life. Every single day, at least 30 minutes is invested in the world of blogs, and that’s probably one of the best investments I’ve made so far.

Here’s the thing I love reading and writing blogs, simply because they can enrich your life in a zillion different ways. Blogs can take you to place you never knew existed, connect you with people who can transform your life and just make life so worthwhile and complete – if you’re a blogger you’d probably understand what I mean. As they say “Babies make the world go round” .. Well, “Babies and Blogs make my world go round and just about everywhere I want to go:)

In this post, I am sharing my favorite blogs – Blogs which I follow closely, which I read regularly, which make my day complete and which make my world go round!

So without any further ado, sharing below a list of Nischala’s TOP-ular blogs which I recommend you visit at least once.

Zen Habits BY Leo Babauta

Undoubtedly, one of the BEST blogs that I have discovered in the blog-o-sphere. I’ve been following Leo’s blog for years now, and I still love it! Every single post is a “treasure”, and based on his real-life journey and personal transformation. What I love about Leo’s writing is this – Simplicity, Honesty and the fact that he writes from personal experiences. The choice of topics he writes about is very relevant and important in anyone’s life. So no matter what, I do make sure that I take (or make) time to read his blogs regularly. And if there is only ONE blog that I can recommend for you to follow, it would be this. It has changed my writing, thinking and life in so many positive ways. It can possibly do the same to you also. So do stop by the blog. Along which his writing, I have deep respect and admiration for Leo due to his personal life transformation.

The Change Blog BY Peter Clemens

Change is integral to human life and our own personal journey, and Peter’s blog focuses on how people have dealt with change in their life. The posts are usually from guest authors, and are based on personal real-life experiences. There is usually a powerful take-away from most of the posts – In terms of how individuals have dealt with specific situations where “change” played a critical role. Definitely worth reading to get tips, suggestions or insights into how people deal with / have dealt with changes in their life

Purpose Fairy BY Luminita D. Saviuc

I love this blog and as the blog says “Raw, honest wisdom from the awesome school of life to brighten up your day”. That’s the sum and substance of this blog and it always leaves me with food for thought! Hop over and check it out

The Buffer Blog BY the Buffer team

I’m crazy about the quality content they put up, the level of detail and the kind of topics chosen. I am almost always in awe with the thoroughness with which they research a topic and simplicity with which they write (And most of the writers are in their 20’s!). Amazing stuff! Just as a primer, the blog mentions that they are “A blog about productivity, life hacks, writing, user experience, customer happiness and business.” All topics are personally relevant to me, and I guess relevant to you too, right? Check them out today, and that is the path-way to a treasure!

Seth’s Blog BY Seth Godin

Who does not know Seth Godin? As a marketer, I look up to him. As an author, I respect him. As a blogger, I totally admire and respect him (And I love his blog!). One, he posts EVERY SINGLE day! Two, his posts are short, like really short (I simply enjoy reading short posts). Lastly, every single post is immensely profound. I’ve come to believe that the most difficult writing is when you can say lots in as few words as possible, and Seth is the guru in that! I’ve yet to come across any other blogger who does this with such finesse. You can read his post in about 2 – 3 minutes, and spend the next 2 hours mulling over what he meant!

Chris Bogan BY Chris Bogan

I stumbled upon Chris’s blog after I read his epic post titled “106 Excuses that prevent you from ever becoming great”. And have been a loyal follower ever since. Chris writes about a wide range of topics from marketing and sales and service. He almost always focuses on how better to connect with people, which is one of the main reasons I love his blog!

Michael Hyatt : Intentional Leadership BY Michael Hyatt
One of the best blogs on Personal Development, Leadership, Productivity and Publishing. Michael writes regularly, writes from his wealth of real-life experiences, writes on a range of topics which are personally relevant to me, uses several media (podcasts, videos, etc.) and more importantly, there is phenomenal “value” that I gain from every single post – Either I learn something new or there is food for thought or I get an idea for my next blog post :)

PHOTOGRAPHY Blogs

I love photography blogs, and it amazes me how much talent is out there really, and how beautiful nature is, and how wonderful human moments and memories are! Every single picture screams a million words. Needless to say, I love the magic created by a camera. Sheer beauty!

Daily Dose of Imagery BY Sam Javanrouh

Pixel Candy BY Thomas Bonin

Here and Now  BY Cyril Bays

Hop over for a visual treat.

COOKING and CULINARY DELIGHTS Blogs

Cooking is a creative form of expression, and I have a special fondness for people who can dish up a culinary delight. This emotion magnifies even more if they cook exclusively for me :). The thing about cooking blogs is that they usually combine two complementary skills – Cooking and Photography. And with these, a vast majority of blogs can tease and please almost all your senses! (yes! Sometimes when I see a photo I can imagine the ‘smell’ too :)

My Diverse Kitchen BY Aparna

Archana’s Kitchen  BY Archana

Saffron Trail BY Nandita Iyer

I’m not saying why I like them. Hop over and see for yourself :)

 

And as I sign off, I’m sharing 5 of my all-time  favorite blog posts (I’ve lost track of the number of times I have read these.) . Needless to stay, they’ll always be with me!

What is your Social Media Legacy?

A while back I had written a post titled “What is your personal legacy?”. The post was well received and shared in good numbers on all Social Media networks, and also generated some interesting discussions and conversations – Both online and offline.

But after the post was published, I felt something was incomplete in my post. I couldn’t really put a finger on what, but I knew that I had missed something. During one such pensive and quiet moment, I got it!

Looking around me, I realized that a vast majority of us spend significant amount of our daily time online – especially on Social Media platforms [Twitter, Facebook, Blogs, Pinterest, etc]. So would it not be relevant to plan to leave a legacy of your Social Media presence? Or in other words – Your very own Social Media Legacy?

After all, bottom line “Social Media” is really about 3 things:

1)      Knowledge / Collective Knowledge / Wisdom / Collective Wisdom – of an individual / community / world at large

2)      Thoughts / Ideas which stem from confusion, consciousness, creativity, co-relation, collaboration, comprehension – of an individual / community / world at large

3)      Interactions / Communities / Relationships and Networks – between individuals / communities / world at large

10 or possibly 50 years from now, one’s “Social Media Legacy” will be an integral (even legally perhaps) and important part of one’s personal legacy.

So if you’re wondering what exactly you’re Social Media Legacy could comprise of. Here are a few examples:

  • A Blog – Which is really a canvas for words. Words which stem from dreams, thoughts, observations, analysis, learning’s, conversations, view-points, outlook, views, emotions, perspectives, achievements, mistakes, failures, lessons learnt, comprehensions, experiences and conclusions. And that sums up the lives of most of us, doesn’t it?

Would it not be worthwhile to share such a memoir as a part of your personal legacy?

  • A Twitter profile – Which is really be a collection of thoughts, observations, viewpoints, perspectives, interesting data / facts / figures / news / quotes / articles / compilations / readings..

Would it not be worthwhile to share such a collection as a part of your personal legacy?

  • A Pinterest Board – Which is really a compilation of world-class / interesting / favorite pictures or photos on a specific topic(s) of personal interest.

Would it not be worthwhile to share such a compilation as a part of your personal legacy?

Whom you leave your Social Media Legacy for is a personal choice. And how much they will value it, only time will tell

But here’s what’s important – If you are serious about leaving behind a Social Media Legacy, plan for it today; and work objectively on it in the years to come. After all, you are spending so much time on a daily basis on Social Media channels, so is it not worthwhile to channelize your efforts in a structured way?

Hopefully, sometime in the future (say 10, 20 or 50 years from now), you would have built a rich Social Media Estate. One which will be of value to the next generation!

On that note, Good Luck in creating your Social Media Legacy!

Do you think your Social Media Legacy will be an integral part of your personal legacy sometime in the future? Leave a comment to let me know…

10 ways Twitter made a difference in 2013

Looking back at my Twitter journey, I can say that in 2013 I have been more active on Twitter than ever before. While I did not start the year with any grand plans on objectives of what I wanted to accomplish, I definitely wanted to be more active..

Along the way, Twitter has helped me in several ways. In this blog, I am listing the 10 ways in which Twitter made a DIFFERENCE
(1) Connected me with some amazing individuals – Yes! I’ve connected with some fantastic individuals on Twitter – People who I would never have been able to connect with. People who are “great thinkers”, people from whom I learn so much and people who inspire me with their words. And to all of them, a BIG THANK YOU!

(2) Enabled me to learn continuously – If there is one social media platform through which I have learned about topics / areas that were of interest to me, it was through Twitter. To my advantage, I was very specific about my learning objectives and goals, and hence was very particular about whom I follow – In most cases, the very BEST in their respective niches. And if you follow the masters, you can be sure to learn – provided you are a diligent student :)

(3) Improved written communication skills (specially brevity) – Improvement in written communication is a priority for any one who writes. And personally, brevity has not been a strength for long. However, ever since I became active on Twitter – I was challenging myself (repeatedly) to come to the core of what I wanted to communicate. A year of practice later – I can definitely say that I am much better today. The real-life testimonial is that most meeting I usually chair mostly end before time :). As someone at work said, “You are so clear and concise, always conveying only the relevant information! – That’s definitely a feather in my cap :)

(4) Research – One of the most important activities as a part of my work involves research. And Twitter is a great repository to get real-time access to quality information on any topic. The two ways I get information are through Hashtag search, and by following the Gurus in a specific area of interest. Research time has reduced significantly ever since I started to use Twitter.

(5) Brought a smile to my face – On many a gloomy day, if there was one thing which brought a smile to my face it was Twitter. A joke or a witty comment or a compliment or a surprise DM from a kind soul – All brought a smile to my face. And it made a difference!

(6) Provided generous doses of inspiration – Quotes always inspire me. And starting off my day by reading an inspirational quote from the wise and learned and experienced has set the right tone and mood for my days. I look forward to getting my dose of quotes from Twitter. In addition, reading motivational and inspirational writings through shared links on Twitter was an added bonus!

(7) Platform to share my writings – One of the most important benefits for me as a blogger was that Twitter was a great platform to share my writings. It gave me real-time reach to a global audience : people who would probably never have read my content otherwise!

(8) Log for the incessant chatter of the mind – In hindsight, one of the most important benefits of using Twitter is that it was a log for the incessant chatter of my mind. A lot of ideas, thoughts and realizations keep buzzing around continuously. Once I started logging it on Twitter, my mind was a lot clearer. Decision making improved. Concentration improved. My productivity improved. My sleep improved :) – That’s a lot of good things !

(9) Topics / Ideas to Blog About – One of the challenges for most bloggers is to find the next thing to write about. Even here, Twitter has come to the rescue. Sometimes it is through my own back-dated tweets, and sometimes it is via others tweets.

(10) Friend when no one was there – There were times when I had nothing really to do (Albeit few, but they did exist). At those times, Twitter was a good friend. Just logging in to Twitter, and spending some time with no specific agenda objective or expectations – was surprisingly very comforting!

Who teaches Gen Y / Gen Z the Social Media basics?

Over the recent past, I’ve had the opportunity to interact up close and personal with the Gen Y and Gen Z – in schools, colleges, social gathering’s, etc etc etc. – The “Digital Natives” as they are popularly called – For e.g.: The 2 year old’s who can play on the iPad, the 5 year old who goes to a school where there is a “Touch Lab”, the 10 year old who is ever so active on FaceBook, the 15 year old who has 10K+ Twitter followers and the last one I should mention – The yet to be born baby who already had a Google account, Twitter account and FaceBook account!

They are everywhere! And I am glad to see them :)

But during interactions, interestingly a lot of them confessed to Social Media Blunders or Social Media Disasters (Of course dos not include the yet-to-be-born baby and the 2 year old, They can’t speak properly yet, or they speak in a language I can’t understand ;)

Example 1 : A 12 year old shared his address on FaceBook, and got into trouble
Example 2 : A 8 year old shared her contact number as part of her Twitter profile, and got into trouble
Example 3 : A 15 years old shared photographs on FaceBook, and got into trouble
Example 4 : A 21 year old tweeted something controversial, and got into trouble
Example 5 : An 18 year old posted a confession on FaceBook, and got into trouble

And I can go on with many more such examples.. But the point is this – It’s great that this generation is on SOCIAL. And Good for them! Good that the Social Bug is in them, and they learned a lot by themselves…

But what about the things that their peers don’t know about Social Media?
But what about the things that even their teachers don’t know about Social Media?
But what about the things that their parents don’t know about Social Media?

And I am not talking about features, or capabilities, or How-To’s, or How to do better, faster..
I am talking about THE SOCIAL MEDIA BASICS with an emphasis on WHAT NOT TO DO on SOCIAL MEDIA?
What NOT to say about yourself?
What NOT to share?
What NOT to do?
Whom NOT To connect with?
When to disconnect from Social Media?

Who teaches the Gen Y / Gen Z the Social Media Basics?
from what I know, no one really! Most learn by experience – By burning their fingers, By seeing others learn the hard way :(

In my honest opinion, it makes complete sense for schools / educational institutes to include Social Media Basics as a part of the School Curriculum (May be some already do, but I’m not aware). Get Social Media Gurus / Experts to talk , to share their learning’s, to give insights into possible consequences and impact on life.

Teach the Gen Y / Gen Z the Social Media Basics, and these are really the basics of LIFE. But someone has to teach it, and they have to learn sometime.. Sooner, the BETTER!
