The 'community brings the news' edition.
1 - Tim has posted some stunning pictures and commentary on the wildfires that are raging in Southern California. Thankfully, MasiGuy and his family seem to be out of harm's way, but obviously not everyone is so lucky. I think this is a great example of how social media can be used to report breaking news, and to make us aware of the issues and struggles that other people can be facing. Hang in there Tim, we're keeping you and everyone else that's being affected by the fires in our thoughts.
2 - I love discovering new blogs, and I recently discovered Ivana's Strategy Stew after she picked up on my Spirit post. She's got some great stuff there, such as this post on creating an emotional response and great customer experience. Check it out!
3 - Eat, Sleep, Blog is back for Episode 5. Which means more hard-hitting talk about marketing bullshit, with healthy doses of intended and unintended humor. Sean said that he, Gavin and Paul agreed to post a new episode after receiving requests for one, to which Gavin replied "Really? People ask for this? They get what they deserve then ;)"
4 - Check out Ann's latest HuffPo post on Harry Potter and the Curse of TMI.
Now, I'm going to cut this edition of VCN a bit short as I want to turn the post over to you guys. If you have any posts you've written lately that you want to bring attention to, feel free to post a link in the comments. It can be 1, 5, or even 10. If you've written something that you think the community would be interested in, please let us know! My only request is that if do post links to your own work, please also post at least one link to another blogger's post that you have enjoyed lately. This is a great way that we can work together to bring attention to stuff that not only we have created, but great posts that we've come across in our blogging travels.
So the floor is yours, and thanks!
