Today, I booked my first ever blab session. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, allow me to explain…
Blab (https://blab.im) is “a place to watch, join, and interact with live conversations about the topics that matter most to you.” Basically, Blab is a live-streaming platform that enables a public video chat among four participants at a time. I’ve tuned in on multiple occasions and to be transparent, it wasn’t for me. What I found was a whole bunch of ‘wanna be authorities’ on various topics. While the topics I chose were of interest to me, I tuned out after a few minutes of listening to the blab (and yaddah yaddah yaddah).
I fully understand that companies must take part in the technology ecosystem and how important virtual audiences are in regard to marketing products and services. But I also see the side of how difficult it is to keep up! Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Vimeo, Periscope, blogging, Google+, LinkedIn, podcasts, Pinterest, Instagram, Flickr, Tumblr and more (in no specific order) — sometimes it’s overwhelming. Not just as someone trying to keep up in regard to business marketing… but as a consumer as well.
I’m open though! I’m hoping this Blab will change my mind about Blab, you guys. Maybe I just got hooked up with the wrong Blabbers.
I want to be more like Dharma. Everything sounds like ‘blab blab blab’ to her and she finds it ALL extremely entertaining. She just loves
digital dogital marketing!
