Do you need a cape to be The Connector Blogger?
Maybe, but it’s not required. Julie breaks it down as we talk about the origins of the term and why being a connector is an important skill to hone. We both first heard about the term from Malcolm Gladwell’s book, The Tipping Point (see link below). A Connector is basically someone who solves problems through people. If you’re having trouble with SEO, Julie is more than likely going to recommend someone she knows who is an expert at SEO, rather than send you to reading an article.
Our goal at ChoppedCon is to help you be your best. We hope this episode on The Connector Blogger is helpful to the important work you’re doing every day!
