Creating the beautiful blog with Stanford Smith

Click here if you can’t see the video interview with Stanford Smith of Pushing Social.

stanford smith and mark schaefer I recently had a chance to catch up with Stanford Smith, one of the best social media marketing minds in the business and certainly the go-to-guy for all things blogging.

Stan was the co-author of the best-selling book Born to Blog: Building Your Blog for Personal and Business Success One Post at a Time

In this short video interview he covers:

  • The importance of comments — a place to find your voice.
  • How we engage with our audiences beyond comments
  • The blogging trend that energizes him.
  • The emerging form and beauty of blogs.
  • Creating a “blogging experience.”
  • The common thread of great speakers and their content.

I hope you enjoy this interview and be sure to connect with Stanford on his blog and other social media platforms.

  • Very insightful, I’ve just started to read more articles on Medium and the platform is definitely angled towards showing off the writing skills of the authors as opposed to the design of the ‘theme’ as with many blogs.

    I’ve always preferred simpler design and less distraction from the content.

  • I definitely see that trend too Barry. Stripped down and simple design.
