"The greatest fear in the world may be the opinion of others.The moment you become unafraid of the crowd, is the moment you are no longer sheep. A great roar arises in your heart, the roar of freedom."
Whether it is a big or a small announcement, the social media of our blogs is the right platform to do just that. Town Dancer is a good one and the same goes for internal changes in our blogosphere. Changing and adding information contributors starts with a clear understanding of how to provide good service for the dance organizations and the reader/dancers.''

Our people should know that apart from having a plan we must make sure that all of us have the same goal in mind and pass the good feedback around to the rest of us. Hopefully we will get some Information Contributor to share with all the reader/dancers. From there when they are ready, willing and able they can get in as Guest Author and have their own blog within the blog.
No one can deny the power and influence of social media in improving the dancer's educational service. Nonetheless, let us not forget that these are just tools. What is more important is having a dancer service mindset. We should make sure that most of our people are dancer-minded. Once established, using the tools will become natural. Building meaningful conversations to build social dance capital. Social dance capital will sustain our blogs through the trying times. We should be pretty well out of it by the end of this year.
