Juju Cole wrote a pretty neat article a few weeks about about how awesome the Australian social media marketing bloggers are. The article talks about the ridiculous amount of free content and resources available to brands wanting to establish themselves in this space.The only problem, of course, is that brands need someone to tell them they should be adding these bloggers to their RSS Feed in the first place. Just like someone needs to tell them they should have a Google Alerts account set up.Both are free, but to know about them you already need to be inside the social media circle. Getting there isn't hard, but the majority of brands need someone to push them in.So perhaps social media marketers, agencies and consultants should be looking to pull clients inside that circle?...

I guess this is one of those posts that if I were to die tomorrow I would be annoyed this came up first on my blog. But. I have a question which probably falls best under the Almost Pointless Blog Design category. Should the "Older Posts" button at the bottom of every blog be on the left hand side or the right hand side? If you read chronologically from left to right then I imagine it should be on the left. But if you want your blog to open like a book I suppose it should appear on the right. Thoughts?...
