to bring on happy endorphins" - Jeff
I reached out to Jeff earlier this week to know more about him. He is a keen road cyclist. Keeping fit is a big part of his being. He has a passion for learning, reading, marketing and technology. He said, “I have burning curiosity about the future. The blog is the intersection of those passions.”
He says that creating his blog has been vital to develop writing skills and much more, as writing like anything creative needs practice. Writing authentic stories and finding the right topic to talk about, as in ‘trending’ both are important, but one needs to balance the tension between traffic and story telling. The key thing here is to maintaining your unique blogging brand voice along the way.
Talking about his own social media journey, he says, “I realised that the blog was taking on a life of its own when jeffbullas.com was nominated as one of the top social media blogs on Social Media Examiner in 2010. When your readers start to promote you then you know that something is going on. This happened because I was discovered by my blog powered by a social web. Marketing was my first love but my blog gave me a voice to reach the world and share my curiosity about the way social media resonated with people. I was fascinated with this intersection of technology and humanity.”
He had travelled to India earlier this year and he says that he loved the energy and passion for learning in India.
His mission: "To inspire and educate people to win at business and life in a digital world"
His advise to Indian Bloggers: “I would encourage any blogger to think big, be global and be true to your purpose.”
“Creating an online digital brand means that your voice will be heard even when we no longer breathe. So the web will indeed create a form of immortality or legacy for bloggers.” - Jeff Bullas
So there you go bloggers, keep blogging and leave you with the interview on Jeff's own blogging journey.
