Looking back at 2007 and happy New Year 2008

Montreal social media marketing blog in 2007

I started blogging few months ago without any specific strategy to experience what blogging was all about. I began writing about events in Montreal related to the internet marketing industry: BarCamp Montreal 3, Facebook Camp, Interactive to the max, Webcom, Webcamp, Yulbiz,… but the articles that have received the most attention viewers were those with topics non-related to Montreal and focused on social media marketing (Is digital interactivity changing marketing and The rise of social media marketing). But regardless the visibility, the most valuable thing that blogging gave me is the opportunity to meet a lot of people here in Montreal (mostly bloggers).

Happy New Year 2008

I’d like to take the opportunity to wish them a wonderful year 2008 and tell them that even if I’m not commeting on their blog, I still pay attention to everything they write. So let’s start with the Yulbiz gang: , , , , , et . People that I met randomly in different activities : , , , , , , , , , , , , , , . Since I don’t have any blogroll, I’ll continue my list of Montrealers that I’m following via my feed reader (and that I’d surely like to have a quick chat with all of them in 2008): , , , , , , , , , , , .

To all of you, I wish you the best with your family, and of course your projects and business.

Special wishes and thanks to who introduced me to the internet marketing and nicely brought me on his amazing crew at NVI.

    Hi Nicolas,

    I am Wishing you a great year too!

    by the way, i think the blog has lots of potential. internet marketing is very young, with lots of opportunities. you could use the blog to tell about your experiments, your projects, successes in internet marketing. who knows, maybe it will become the SEOMoz of the East cost.

    @Heri: Thanks for the advices, I definitely want to do something with the blog, but don’t know what yet… Rand (SEOmoz) has his entire business built around his blog (since most of his income is generated from his premium memberships) I don’t want my blog to be my business (I already have a great job) so I guess the future will tell how the blog could find his own niche. I will surely blog more about experiments and projects.

    @Michel: I’ll still be at yulbiz in 2008

    @Guillaume: Hey, I am full of surprises ;) + Feel free to send me all the linklove that you want !
