OK AR Member's, do you ever feel a little awkward whipping out your........CAMERA because you saw the potential of a great ActiveRain Localism BLOG about a local shop, restaurant, or event but didn't have the courage to snap away?
Well don't anymore! As ActiveRain member's we are given a great SEO tool thanks to AR to help spread the word about everything and anything in our local communities. I for one will never take Localism for granted again.
Recently I visited a local shop and had an AH-HA Blogging Moment and I wanted to share it with the community....but I was afraid to whip out my camera for fear of the employees or in this case the owner's would wonder what I was up to.....what did I want.....or start dialing 911! Don't ask me why but I always have these guilty feelings.
So after touring the store and meeting the owner's I ASKED (how simple is that!) if they would mind me taking some pictures and blogging about their great local shop. At first they looked puzzled and were unaware of blogging but said "Sure!" I told them I would send them a copy of the blog when it was done. I still think they might have thought "what does she want" but I am glad they obliged.
Boy am I glad I had the courage to ASK and whip it out! :)
The owner's were so happy with my Localism blog they sent me a lovely email thank you.
From one owner............
Thank you so much!!!! Your blog was fantastic! I'm not real computer savvy when it comes to putting together anything like what you did for the shop and really appreciate your blogging our store.
Thanks again, as a mom and pop store off the beaten track we need all the exposure we can get.
Then another owner..........
You wrote a very lovely article about "Jack's Nuts"....I thank you kindly...We appreciate it and are very thankful for all the props that we can get............
I thank you much for paying tribute...You are very kind.
To top it off they sent me another email letting me know that a local realtor stopped in after reading my blog!! How cool is that!
So long blog short, if you haven't had the courage to whip it out and spread the word about wonderful local events, restaurants or shops in your community I dare you to do it now! You will be helping your community and your business! And who doesn't need that? :)
