I've really hit a road block this month. I've put "blog something" in my day planner practically since my last post. It's also an Outlook reminder and I've kept my blog site open in a Chrome tab hoping for some inspiration.
Truth is, I'm not really commenting or creating on any platforms lately. Sure I repost, reshare, and retweet content at least twice a day on Twitter, Facebook and G+ but if you check my feeds, there's very little original content... Of course everything I post is first vetted to make sure it's not drivel and that the link is working.
So the quality is there, but not the original content.
When I figure out why, I'll let you know.
So let's delve into the years gone by and see what I can "reblog" :)
Jack Rabbit - this is still a good primer / basic description of how Jack Rabbit indexer works in NB. Also note that the department of Tourism and Parks is currently investigating how to feature festivals, events and attractions in the same way. If you have ideas or want to share, please contact Carol Alderdice
And that reminds me Tourism and Parks in NB recently released this document on Partnerships and Programs Opportunities for Operators. Very informative, in terms of knowing who is responsible for what in the dept, and a list of their consumer facing social media outlets.
If you're running a Bed and Breakfast or Inn - please check out this post from September with lots of links to resources specifically for that interest group.
Here's a nice post where I lecture you (from August).
And let's talk a bit about what's coming up in the next few months ...
HNL annual conference in Gander in February - TT.com will be there
Online Revealed/ Tourism Summit in Toronto in March - TT.com going to the T.dot :)
TIAPEI annual conf in Charlottetown in March - going to this as well
Later in March and April, TourismTechnology.com will be offering a series of workshops. Day long in various locations throughout Atlantic Canada. For the bargain basement price of $100 plus HST. Each year we ferret out a spectacular presenter and follow them around as they help educate Operators on Social Media, Marketing, Communication, Tech and other issues.
And then Spring will be here.
And I might be more inspirational.
