Social media update (for http://www.nonclinicaljobs.com)

Thanks to those of you who have plunged into the world of Social Media as it relates to this site http://www.nonclinicaljobs.com.

Here's a brief update as we look back at 2009 and get ready to dive into 2010:
  • Our "Non-Clinical Healthcare Professionals" member site (http://members.nonclinicaljobs.com/) currently has 1,091 members. Have you joined this exclusive social network? This free network started in May 2008 and we've grown this quickly! What does that tell you about the power of social networking?
  • Our Facebook fan page has 138 fans. Show your support for this site by becoming a fan. This fan page started in October 2009 as a social experiment and I've decided that the experiment was a success.
  • Our LinkedIn group currently has 76 members. This group was started on December 9 2009, so it's only been a few weeks. Let's see how this group grows in 2010. 
  • On Twitter, I (@DrJosephKim) have 24,722 followers. I started seriously using Twitter in April 2009 and it's been an amazing social media experience to grow my follower count through my blogs and my social networks. Do you Twitter? Or are you asking, "what's Twitter?"
Wow, 2009 has been quite a year! The URL http://www.nonclinicaljobs.com was created in Feb 2009. Prior to that time, I was blogging about many different things on a single blog. In the early part of 2009, I decided to divide my blogs into 4 distinct blogs. I'm glad I did that and I'm sure my readers are glad as well. My blogs have grown tremendously in 2009 and I'm very eager to see what's going to happen in 2010. If you're thinking about starting a blog, now is a great time to start. The sooner you start, the sooner you'll reap the rewards and benefits associated with blogging.

If you're not leveraging social media, it's time to jump on the wagon and see what it's all about. If you're planning on switching careers, then the power of social networking can't be emphasized enough.

  1. i would love to start a blog, but im having difficulty trying to find a focus of which to build upon. i feel like there are so many niches out there, and many of them have already been served well by successful blogs such as yours! how can i use blogs to improve?
