some social communication thoughts....


this blog has been a great way for us to post general information about things going on here. After a year or so of using twitter, the blog, stumble, facebook, merrow community etc. I have to say that the Company is ready to:

a. dump twitter -- we've tried and i have to say it's a real waste of time
b. spend more time blogging
c. revamp the Merrow Community

AND e. perhaps spend less time worrying about whether content has made it through all the various social communication vehicles

Merrow has manufactured sewing machines since 1838 and remains one of the most interesting companies in the textile space

Hi,

I just wanted to say that your decision to dumb Twitter in an effort to spend more time blogging has a lot of potential.

1. Twitter is very powerful, but requires a lot of time in a domain where results are hard to measure.

2. Your blog is very in-depth and informational; investing more time into an already strong channel can't be anything but great.

Good luck, I hope it works out, and keep up the great blogging!
