123notary and Social Media
123notary.com has endeavored to build a community feeling by creating various social media profiles over the last few years. We created a notary discussion forum in 2004. Our forum grew in popularity over the years, but we found that the trends in social media had changed, and that more people prefered Facebook and other providers. Then, in 2009, we created Facebook and Twitter profiles which quickly became very lively. In 2010, we decided to create a blog, to add a format where we could discuss notary issues in detail. The forum had a nice form of interaction, but our blog will make it possible to focus on what a particular author has to share, rather than reading a potentially chaotic conversation between a variety of strangers all chiming in.
123notary.com will attempt to have a lively notary blog by blogging about the most interesting and critical issues facing notaries today. In order to spice things up, we will
be having guest bloggers write articles about whatever notary blog topics they find interesting. The guest writers each have a very different style and write about very different topics than I would write about which will make our blog diverse and interesting. Our current guest bloggers are Ken and Carmen, but we hope to attract more as time goes on. If you write interesting materials, and want to be a guest blogger with us, just send us an email introducing yourselves, and we will consider you!
Topics for discussion
I want to use this notary public blog to discuss issues in a way that can not be adequately done on other mediums. Forums have too much weak commentary from members with posts ranging from two or three words to a sentence. Some of the input is helpful while others is not on forums. Very little of the writing on forums is good enough to feature on a resource page. One major pattern I would like to establish on our blog is to take the best content from the forum and publish it in blog format. I would select the most popular and helpful forum topics, and condense the more helpful commentary from the notaries in one page in a blog entry. That way the 90-95% of forum commentary that is not helpful would be filtered or weeded out. Another pattern I would like to use on the notary public blog is to address major issues facing notaries, in detail. Rather that focusing on quantity, I would like to address certain pressing issues, and have thorough and quality input about these matters. Some issues that will be popping up soon will include: How to handle common problems at signings, Loan Modifications, Billing, Etiquette, e-signings, How to Dress, etc., If there are topics that you would like addressed, you are welcome to voice your opinion.
Facebook, Twitter and our blog
We will get materials for our blog from discussions on facebook as one of our sources of information. Our facebook profile is a source of lively discussions and information about the notary world. Each week or two we discuss a different issue and break it in to components. There will be lots of material to work with. We will be tweeting about our new blogs on Twitter as a way to get the news out quickly. We may even have a competition on facebook for notaries who can write a great blog article that is good enough for us to post.
