Dennis, although all your posts are equally good, your post no. 6 continues to be one of the most sought-after and favorite posts till today. (developing socialmedia & business aligned social networking strategy)

I always re-read, recommend and make it a point to mention this to peers and community folks.

Would definitely like to talk about it someday !

Daksh -

Thank you for your Dec. 4 comment and for the compliment. I appreciate it very much.

That post "How To Develop a Business-Aligned Social Media & Social Networking Strategy" is now Number 5 for the week; the ranking fluctuates.

I'm currently working on three very different projects that incorporate different elements of that "methodology." The approach has to be adapted to take into account practicalities like project scope and budget. There's no substitute for (a) constantly relating your plan to your objectives and (b) making sure the plan is practical and implementable.

It may not be practical to get together right now but here's a view from my house of a recent sunrise:

this is my first visit on this site and i am happy to find this worthy collection of top ten posts. I will read one by one. Thank you very much.
Great list Dennis! I would have to say in my opinion the two best reads were What’s the Difference Between Innovation and Creativity? and How To Develop a Business-Aligned Social Media & Social Networking Strategy. Looks like I have found yet another weekly top 10 list to add to my bookmarks. Looking forward to next week.
