I’m being watched

December 5, 2010

Are the hairs on the back of my neck alive? Well, they are alive, but they’re not standing on end…even though I’m being watched. Luckily, this isn’t like a John Lennon or celebrity stalker situation (for two reasons). First, I’m no celebrity. Second, the people watching me are doing me a favor.

So, what’s the denoument? That 451 Marketing put me on the list of top social media strategists to watch in 2011.

Now, these are smart people. And not folks to be trifled with. So I’m taking their advice and watching a bunch of the people they listed. You should do the same. Even if you don’t watch me – take a gander at some of the folks they suggest keeping your eyes peeled for…

Watch out!
