Shareology would like to … ummm….  share a tool she loves for Minnesota networking.  This site debuted in August of 2010 and has grown from 10 to 19 Minneapolis-St. Paul organizations listing events in marketing, public relations and sales.   Tired of checking multiple sites to find out what’s happening in town?  Gistr has your solution!

Today there are more than 110 Minnesota marketing events listed for 2011!!   For the remainder of January alone, there are 18 different events listed.  So warm up your January with some networking and head on over to:

#jmu612 looks to 2011! December 4, 2010

Shareology loves her marketing events in the Twin Cities!  One of the best to emerge in 2010, Java Meetup 612, spent last Thursday looking ahead to 2011:

meets at @UrbanBeanCoffee

founders @JoelECarlson @maikelvdm and @EricaMayer

 

Erica kicks it off: what do you want to see for java meetup 612 in 2011??

Now for the all important after event networking:

Breon = Droid = Mobile = Thank you!

The difficulty with trying to confer the dynamic discussion in a blog is  — you can’t.   A substitution is to follow the tweet stream at #jmu612 or follow @jmu612         Next meeting is 8 am, February 3, 2011.

For a listing of marketing events in the Twin Cities for December and 2011, go to www.gistr.com or follow on Twitter at @gistrMN

MIMA at Target Field September 18, 2010

MIMA held their fall social at Target Field in Minneapolis last week.  Shareology had never been, so she was verrrrrry excited.  Plus, she discovered a secret parking place that works as long as the Twins aren’t in town.  (OK, it worked for Alphabet Bash and it worked last week at MIMA.)   She just carefully comes in off 394 and heads for Garage B … just a few feet inside, people are leaving, and she gets a space right away.  At MIMA, Shareology parked, walked 100 feet — and discovered herself at the gateway to Target Plaza –and  Kirby!!!!! 

Just a few feet from Parking in garage B.......

 

Wow: this is what's outside Garage B??? Hi, Kirby!!

 

Giant bats with ivy: love it!!

 

Twins outta town......

 

 

Ah, MIMA food...........

 

Diane and Ivan keep Shareology company

 

the highlight of the evening: Beatboxing Ben!!

 

Ben is the first guy who makes Shareology think she might need to get into video: a still photo can’t do justice to Ben and his music!!!  way cool!! 

drink? food? drink? food? drink....

 

and now a word from our MIMA Board.....

 

did I mention @GistrMN was working the room?

 

Check out www.gistr.com for information on what’s going on in the Twin Cities for marketing communication events.  There were ten events last week alone!!

Shareology had a ball at Alphabet Bash!  Not only was the food terrific, the company fabulous, but gistr.com made its debut at the Bash.

Gistr.com is a new website showcasing Twin City marketing, communications and public relations events for ten organizations, including some at the those sponsoring the Bash!

An overview of the Gistr table and team:

The Year of Living Socially July 31, 2010

Shareology was one year old last week!!  Anniversaries can be a time of reflection.  A year or so ago, I had 11 LinkedIn contacts, no recommendations, no Twitter, no blog.  My recently completed MBA meant I never, ever had to learn again….right?  right? 

Hmmmm…..what’s this social media stuff out on the horizon?  “Kay, ya gotta get serious about your LinkedIn account!!!”   That particular quote came from three trusted sources within 24 hours.

 So, today:   458 LinkedIn Contacts, 12 recommendations, 1,059 Twitter followers, on 90 Twitter lists and Shareology is one year old.  Plus I’m breaking in a Sony Vaio with Windows 7 and I have a review copy of the Droid X.  Yep, there’ve been some changes made…..

 Funny, the key to the whole thing is still networking.  Ultimately, ya gotta come out from behind the technology and meet IRL.   Although you have to wonder how much more connected Howard Hughes would have been if he had an iPhone.  Those Kleenex boxes would have still been around his feet, but if he didn’t snap and send a twitpic, who woulda known?

 The people I have met in real life have been spectacular:  and you know who you ARE!  The folks who stay after a Social Media Breakfast talking smart phones, the folks who send you a job posting for a social media specialist position at Mall of America, the folks who give you a tip that Microsoft is coming to Mall of America. The day Shareology beat the Strib to publication with the news that Louis Vuitton was coming to Galleria. The general contractor for Louis Vuitton who asks for a copy of a Shareology photo for his blog, offering a photo credit. The day I got a snail mail thank you note from Funding Universe for the post on Shareology about CrowdPitch.

 Yep, it’s been a good year, to say the least.  Shareology is now working on social media strategy for gistr.com, a new web site that will bring together in one place the events for the Twin Cities marketing, communications and public relations communities, to debut at Alphabet Bash.  

 Yep, it’s been a good year.  Here’s to the next year, the surprises and the new people to meet online and IRL.   And a HUGE Thank You for all those folks who helped Shareology along the way!!!
