Blog Tag Game – Appropriate on Business Blogs?

Wayne Porter has posted some ground rules for including the virally spreading blog tag game on a ReveNews post.

To all Revenews Bloggers who want to post on the latest Tag Meme- we think the meme is wonder, beneficial and useful BUT WITHOUT APPROPRIATE CONTEXT OR GOALS- it is NOT APPROPRIATE AT REVENEWS.

Porter’s post raises an interesting and provoking question about what is actually acceptable and beneficial on a blog dealing with professional and business themes.  Are standards necessary for you to find value on such blogs or community blogging sites?

Heather Paulson writes about Porter’s insights and assimilates the issue with her own insights:

Five things I have learned about this tagged experience

1) Many bloggers are being tagged, and the phenomenon is wide spread throughout the internet

2) Viral marketing works!

3) There are many bloggers online who easily have access to each other, and news can spread quickly.

4) Messages and content can be misconstrued to sensitive audiences and information must be considerate even on a personal level concerning what those sensitivities might be especially on a collaborative or business blog.

5) The personal side of blogging is fascinating as we learn more (tidbits) concerning our fellow e marketers.

Kudos to Heather for raising the bar and using the tag meme game as a chance to explore the business related issues involved with this virally spread game, and blogging in general.  Her five points, rather than five insights about herself, point out the forward thinking that can be found within the realm of online and affiliate marketing.

    I posted comments over there. Shawn brings up some good points. I actually liked them and apparently 4 other Revenews bloggers that participated liked them too. You get to know the people behind the blogs a little better. Nothing wrong with that. If you were going to put your foot down on what should and shouldn’t be on a professional blog, it would have been during Shmuly’s early blogs or stuff like:

    This Screech Sex Tape blog:

    Probably better on a personal blog. Actually probably better nowhere 🙂

    I also was going to post something about meme but Shawn did. I think you started that and now Jim or Wayne have it in almost every blog 🙂


  2. Thanks, Trust…here’s my blog tag meme thing:

    Can’t comment on Screech, but it’s better than the rumored Porter sex tape.

  4. Charity Tag Meme…

    As a blogger, people may know you, but how good does anyone ever really know anyone? One way to get to know someone better is for them to talk about charities they support. What if bloggers were to go down a path of thinking about some of the peo ……..
