Words of the Week – conversation

I think most of you know I’m a self-professed nerd. I read a lot. I read about MBA subjects like entrepreneurship, emerging media, and building brands. I also read star gossip and fiction like Stieg Larsson’s Millenium trilogy, but that’s a post for another day.

There’s a lot of buzz in my business reading around the idea of building brands by engaging consumers in “conversation.” For example, experts talk about creating conversation by getting people to comment on your blog, participate on your Facebook fan page, or tweet about you on Twitter.

All of this talk about “conversation” leads me to believe I could be doing something better on MBA in the USA. My visitor count continues to grow by an average of 15% each month, but very few people are talking.

Are there subjects out there you want to know about that I’m not covering? Are you shy about leaving comments because you’re afraid you might make an English mistake? Are you too busy with work, school, and everything in between to comment?

I’m so curious. I want MBA in the USA to be a place of valuable information and lots of fun. So, how about it? Will you join the conversation?
